SOME INTERESTING COMMENTS ON

MOVIE NIGHTS

“Letters from the Park, by Gabriel García Márquez, was a fantastic movie. Really, it had everything I look for in a movie. A movie plus interaction with other Spanish students, and the chance to hear the language in a more quickly, spoken manner is helpful to me. It is good to have this, gives people time to relax, while at the same time they are learning. I am looking forward to the next one. These movies are a great idea, they should continue.”

Adam, Elementary Spanish.

[On Letters from the Park] “The message behind this film was one of love and I thought it really brought out the Hispanic culture. The role of death in this movie really showed the Hispanic view about death. The Hispanics celebrate death and are much more open about it than are Americans. This film really taught me a lot about the culture.”

Daniel, Elementary Spanish.

“The movie Miracle in Rome was a very different movie, especially dealing with cultural variations that are present between Latin America and the United States. I thought it was a very interesting movie in the way that plot laid out.”

Matt, Elementary Spanish.

“El video que se llama Milagro en Roma fue muy extraño, pero me gustó mucho. Yo recomentaré este video a mis amigos y, posiblemente, lo miraré una vez más en el futuro.”

Ashley, Intermediate Spanish.

[On Erendira] “La película que yo miré la noche pasada fue muy extraña pero interesante. Me doy cuenta que otras culturas tienen creencias diferentes que nosotros.”

Libby, Intermediate Spanish.

“Esta película estaba llena de mucha emoción. Había tristeza, cólera, amor y humor. Cuando yo la miré, sentí las emociones de los actores en la película. La película era muy de ensueño e imaginativa. Me gustó mucho la película.”

Emily, Intermediate Spanish.

“Pienso que esta historia tiene el mensaje de que seamos sinceros y tratemos de ser fieles a nuestras parejas. No necesitamos de mediadores para ser amados.”

Lilia, Intermediate Spanish.

“MOVIE NIGHTS”

Presents

Herod’s Law, Mexico (1999)

After the corrupt former Mayor is killed by the peasants, poor janitor Juan Vargas is appointed new Mayor of a desert town in central Mexico. Although he tries to bring the motto of the ruling party to town (modernity, peace and progress) he realizes soon that there's nothing to do against corruption... except to become corrupt. Step by step, helped by his pistol, Juan Vargas becomes the law and the worst Major

in the town's history.
