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.

Cautionary tale, albeit familiar...
25 February 2016 | by vynzenteSee all my reviews

Well filmed, with good views, but familiar. The story, however, is widely common as a film tape, and in reality... especially in countries of the third World. The actors, would say, that play extremely well, submit to the level specified. The movie to me is not a cliché, grabs the attention of the viewer in most of the time, but it is not something unseen or unheard. Мusic is selected correctly, nice clean speech and present good sound too. The evaluation ratio at the time as an average is deserved, so I recommend especially the audience with wider views and perception of justice, freedom, understanding and love ! And strong hope so in the shooting of the entire film has none injured Animal under any pretext.
