learning on many levels
18 December 2003 | by woodfrtillsonSee all my reviews

Picking a movie to watch is a learning experience in itself. Why this one and not that one or we watch because we know someone that liked or disliked the movie. Whatever the reason, we learn from the experience and put ourselves on another road to learn something new if we let it happen. This movie can be a learning experience at the same time that we're entertained visually. There's much to see, if we learn to watch.
