Storyline

An American employee of Creole Petroleum Corporation comes to Venezuela to start his new job on the Lake Maracaibo (which he mistakenly thinks is narrow) oilfields. He sees the country's sights and it's cities, which impress him with their modernity, and learns Spanish while preparing for his family's arrival. Written by Jonathan D. H. Parshall <parshall@citcom.net>

Gee, Venezuela! Wow.
17 October 2005 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

An overview of a man who moves to Venezuela to work for the Creole Petroleum company, a Venezualan corporation back in the 1950's. I guess a LOT of people were working for them who were moving from the US. After all, Isn't this why the film was made? The narrator just glows to what can be found working for such a company, where it looks like he's moving into industrial suburbia where the 'house' he moves into is this aluminum bunker which is one hideous house. Couldn't the nice folks at Creole spend a little more on employee housing then the Athletic Club? The narrator is writing back to his family in the mainland, and my god, does the woman who plays the 'wife' look anemic.
