Quotes

Carmela: Every year, I have a Chala in my class. None of them has ever been stronger than me, because, at heart, they are all children. There are four things you need to bring up a child: a home, a school, rigor and affection. But outside that door, there's the street, and a teacher needs to know what's waiting for them out there. In the past, life was clearer, and I knew what I was preparing my students for. Now, the only thing clear to me is what not to prepare them for.

Another good Cuban movie (in need of English subtitles)
6 April 2014 | by moaltaSee all my reviews

A quite interesting and satisfying movie though, for me, less so than BUQUENQUE but more so than PABLO (for those of you who follow recent Cuban productions). CONDUCTA shows the harsh side of Cuban life in various ways and demonstrates attitudinal differences very reflective of Cuban society in 2014. Wonderful acting by the young cast. Music use seems like a last-minute and cheap addition to the movie, which deserves an original score that would in fact be quite achievable in Cuba. The movie has theatrical release in Cuba, which demonstrates the liberal approach Cuba has taken to providing public funding for films that are constructively critical of Cuban society.
