Culture is the main factor to intercultural communication that we often overlook and perhaps even mistake them because of stereotypes that we believe to be correct. I like the film Arranged, the way it started by how Nasira explain to the principle Jacoby at Brooklyn public school. Why she has to wear a headscarf? She tells other teachers including the principle that it is her religion and she follows the rules according to the Quran (Holy book of Muslims). She also lets them know that it is voluntary and upon her own wishes; she is not being forced by anyone and she feels protected by wearing it. I'm the film one of the Sean were interesting to me. In the lunchroom all treacher were getting along to Each other while Rochel and Nasira were sitting in separate benches and they passed each other an awkward smile. In the classroom, the kids question whether they hate each other since they have heard that the Muslims want to get rid of Jews. Rochel designs a unity circle exercise in order to help the students better appreciate differences and the benefits of choice and community.
This movie is a good representation on my learnings of the Jewish religion and culture. The biggest thing that stood out to me was the representation of prayer and the law. In class we learned those two things are some of major pillars in Orthodox Judaism, in the movie these were constantly displayed. Moshe and Mali did not have the means to celebrate Succoth, so they turned to prayer in which they were blessed by God. When the convicts have over-stayed there welcome and Moshe lies to them to get them to leave, Mali uses the story of Abraham and Sara welcoming guests as an example as what God intends for
They do not talk, they do not have names, the viewer simply does not know who they are. I think that the animation makes the film seem dreamlike because Folman is trying to remember what happened in Lebanon. It is almost as if throughout the film, the message is: this massacre “could” have happened. However, the live footage at the end of the film suggest that the massacre did happen. What is interesting, though, is the way the Palestinians are presented to the viewer. The footage is really horrifying and there are no subtitles when the woman in the end is crying and yelling. Her words are basically pointless to those who cannot understand her. It is as if the film dehumanizes the Palestinians and presents them as the “other.” If Waltz with Bashir is a film with a message of forgiveness, then why would it present its victims in this
There is a saying that I always heard growing up is “If the love is true then it will always come back”. It all started in 1981 before I was though of, in Los Angeles, California a big city with people with big dreams. Monica and her family moved next
Whether you read the book or watch the movie it is very enjoyable. It teaches you life lessons of friendships. It is very intriguing and I recommend this book to
“DO THE RIGHT THING” Spike Lee’s movie Do the Right Thing is an excellent portrayal of what life was and is most certainly like in some areas of New York City and across the United States of America. His movie tells the story of Mookie an African American pizza deliveryman, trying
Overall, the film did exactly what any good dramatic film would do and that is make the audience feel something. The tragedy of the Holocaust has never been fictionally depicted from a German child’s view until this movie. The depiction of how a child who is protected from certain elements war might have thought in that era makes this film unique. The unbelievable conclusion is what makes this film unforgettable. The most important scene in the film is the ending, when Bruno
My eye was open to an important process of becoming friends its first just interest and respect towards each other but standing up for each other and not just thinking of ourselves really stamps friendship. The ironic really opened my eyes to how the world is unpredictable and we have no power over it and once we devote ourselves to somewhere and someone it doesn’t gurantee to last but we must take a risk in order to find what John did.
Friendship is a combination of admiration, respect, jealousy, and resentment. This is one of the biggest themes any book can tell, friendships are full of hard shops, stress, memories, and can make you a happier person. It’s always important to have a friend that knows you better than you know yourself. I think that another important theme that this novel gets across is, warfare, not only does this story take place during World War 2, but it teaches your personal warfare. Feelings of hostility, resentment, and fear dominate even what should be the most peaceful of
Friendship is the most important relationship in ones life. In the novel, A Thousand Splendid Suns and the movie The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, the main characters all relay on strong friendships to get through tough times. In The Kite Runner, Amir only has his one friend Hassan to lean on, but he cuts him off due to his guilt for not being able to help Hassan during his time of need. Mariam, in A Thousand Splendid Suns, goes through many misfortunes in her life, but by opening up to Laila’s friendship she allows herself happiness. In both the book, and the movie, the theme friendship is shown through the uses of loyalty, sacrifice, and honor. Loyalty is one of the hardest traits to find in people.
Firstly, the theme of friendship in the novel was shown through unbreakable bond of the protagonists. They had connected instantly upon working together at Maidsend Airfield in England. Together, the team used Maddie’s directional skills and Julie’s ability to speak multiple languages to navigate a lost airplane (Wein 43). This had been
This movie was sorrowful and some parts terrifying, for example, when the Jews getting killed for no reason, just because they were Jewish. These aspects were affective in the movie because it helps the movie look more realistic and more historical. The creators do a good job capturing empathy because the audience knew who were the characters and knew what was going on, most of the audience were hooked on it.
