  1. Raúl Silva Gómez's rating of the film Once in a Lifetime

    Un ejemplo de como el tema de una obra puede nublar la visión objetiva de como se maneja la forma. Parece que la película nos quiere poner en el lugar de los alumnos de la maestra, nos trata condescendientemente y no acepta sus incongruencias morales i.e. No llamar a Olivier, Brahim. Es una película de elenco que no desarrolla a sus personajes y los convierte en receptáculos sin personalidad verosímil, irónicamente.

Well cast especially Ariane Ascaride as the teacher
