Alfonso Cuarón's statement for the film: "There are periods in history that scar societies and moments in life that transform us as individuals. Time and space constrain us, but they also define who we are, creating inexplicable bonds with others that flow with us at the same time and through the same places. Roma is an attempt to capture the memory of events that I experienced almost fifty years ago. It is an exploration of Mexico's social hierarchy, where class and ethnicity have been perversely interwoven to this date and, above all, it's an intimate portrait of the women who raised me in a recognition of love as a mystery that transcends space, memory and time."

I don't know what this thing with oscars is lately, but years back only really good movies deserved it like The Godfather.
I tried to watch this movie because yes of the Oscar. I'm not gonnalisten to that any longer.
All those movies who are getting an Oscar these days, i don't understand half of them.
So I started this movie and was waiting and waiting for wat exactly? Nothing happened!
After one I thought I'm gonna stop with this, take a nap and then google it.
Then if found out on this website that I'm not the only one with this opinion.
So I stopped after one hour and I'm glad I took that decision, had enough time to watch another movie at my free Sunday.
