The Movie Night in Buenos Aires

A friend of mine based in NY happened to be in Buenos Aires at the same time I am here. To make the most of this coincidence, we gather when there are any special events such as going to see the Argentinan ballet or other gatherings.

f0079502_4471519.jpgLast night, another friend of this friend based in Buenos Aires and working for a movie distributor invited us to the opening party for a new movie that is coming to the theaters soon. The movie is called "Tropa de Elite" or in English, "The Elite Squad". The movie has received the Golden Bear in the 2007 Berlin Movie Award.

The movie takes place in Rio de Janeiro depicting the special Police squads' daily lives from different dimensions. Taken in a reportage touch, although the movie is in Portueguese and the subtitle last night was in Spanish, the piece was certainly powerful enough to grasp the audiences' attentions like myself.

When I see a powerful movie like this, I feel strong about the power of the arts in general. I was lucky to be able to see this when I was in the South America. The movie was maybe too powerful for me that I even had a nightmare last night. That is a sign of an adovocative movie! I would definitely like to see this again once it comes to the theaters.
