i didn't see this film as a documentary, but more as a documentary about the life of Franco. there were several aspects of Franco's life that were discussed and some of his goals that i am sure we've all seen many times. after seeing this film, i understood Franco's reasons for killing a lot of his enemies, and i could also get the idea of why he would have gone to such lengths in order to attain power, if he wasn't being truly intelligent. some of the things that were discussed were people who were able to say something against Franco, and people who died as a result of Franco's activities. for example, one thing i was surprised about was the amount of people who were killed and tortured because of Franco's war. it seems like many of the people who were forced into fighting were doing it to gain support from Franco. i can't really say much about the film itself. i was simply blown away by the incredible amount of information that was presented. it is amazing to see the amount of details that were discussed. the idea that Franco was obsessed with the idea of Fascist and other form of government, and how this gave him a greater awareness on how to control people, is something that most people will probably agree with. as for the points of the film, i think they are very interesting. for example, there were a lot of different aspects of Franco's life, but the main focus was the war. Franco wanted to get rid of a lot of people and was very paranoid about the fact that the people who he was having problems with, were actually following him. he was paranoid about the people who were working for him, and as a result, he was able to do many things to get what he wanted. i think that is what makes Franco so great. he was willing to sacrifice the interests of his people, and to make people obey him, and that made him great. the documentary also pointed out the fact that Franco was very secretive about his own death, and if people knew the truth about it, they would probably not want Franco's war to continue. although i didn't think the film was the most accurate in describing Franco's time in power, it did show him as a very powerful and manipulative leader, and also showed that he had a certain amount of intelligence in his mind. he was just very unpredictable, which makes him so great. the documentary also spoke about how Franco had a love for his mother, and how he loved his country. the film also spoke about Franco's habit of using the Bible as his guide in life, and the fact that he wanted to spread the word of God, but not in a way that people would go and worship Franco. i think that was very interesting to hear because it really shows Franco's desire to spread the message of the Bible, but not in a way that would spread it to other countries. i think that was great. he was just really very mysterious. i would definitely recommend this film to anyone who loves Franco's era, because he was such a great man.

This is a good film about the history of the Barcelona train station. In the beginning of the film, we see the entrance to the station, and what was like for people coming from the South of Spain to Barcelona. Also there is a train to Legana station, which had its origins in the Civil War. The film starts with a great concert in the middle of the station. The conductor of the train, Ferenc, played a brilliant violin concerto. I enjoyed watching this movie, because I felt like I was there in Barcelona. I saw the old train station and the entrance, and all the trams. The subway system was great, but the station itself was a very different. The people had modern comforts, and there was one famous cafe, called "Ferenc" or "Ferenc", that had a lot of people. The sound system was so noisy, that it gave the impression that they were too busy to hear what was going on. The train was slow, and had too many people on board, because they were being bused to work. I like the music in the film. I recommend it to anyone.

I came across this documentary on youtube recently, and decided to give it a try. This documentary was just plain fascinating, and it taught me some things about the film industry. First, I'm not a film critic by any means. However, I did enjoy this documentary, because it gave me a better understanding of how a documentary was made. It also teaches you a lot about how to properly make a documentary. I think you should watch this documentary if you like to learn about the different types of documentaries. If you want to learn how to make a documentary, I definitely recommend you watch this documentary.

I watched this film the other night and was really surprised. What I saw on the big screen was one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. Not that I don't like documentaries or talk about documentaries. But this is a real work of art and so much time is devoted to the director's life story that it is overwhelming. As for the movie itself, it is great. You can really feel the way they feel the way he did. And it is true that some parts are not the best to watch. But I really do not understand why some critics call this film boring. It is not! There is just so much to get, from a director's life, about a country, about a person, about a culture, about a topic of an artist's life. I really do not understand why some people do not like it. I think this is a great film and I recommend it to all who like this kind of documentaries.

I have just watched this documentary as part of a class in my English class. In the course of the movie, I got to ask some questions to students who had heard of this movie before. I was surprised by the answers. They are not really that common. But I think that they were the ones who actually spoke the most about the movie. The majority of the students were French or Spanish speakers. Most of them were like: "The movie was good. What else can we expect?". So I can understand that they are the ones who expected more than what they got. But I think it is important to know the movie before the movie itself. The movie is about a movie that I saw in a theater in Strasbourg in 2008. It was made by a theatre company in Italy and Italy called 'Oscar-winning team' (one of the productions). It was a very popular film. So I thought that I should go and see it again. I did that. And now I have a better understanding of it. I think that people in Italy and France are different. A lot of Italians are just afraid to speak their language in public. They don't like to talk. And most of the French speakers are not too proud of their language. So in their country they speak so much. The Spanish audience was very curious about it. They were very good. But the French audience was kind of stupid. They would talk in the third person. And they didn't have any difficulty to understand the other person. It is true that Italian cinema is like that. Italians don't talk much, and they think that they are not good at speaking English. But, sometimes, they speak in a very interesting way. So, if you are Italian, or you are from the French-speaking country, and you are not proud of your language, then you can go and see the movie. You might even learn something about it.

The EXOTIC is a documentary about a dead mystery in Argentina, dating back to 1962 when three Argentine servicemen and a civilian, members of the elite Argentine Army, went missing in a remote jungle in the country. As the years went by, the Navy tried to get to the bottom of the case, even going so far as to kidnap a nurse who came in contact with the troops and keeping her in a mental institute. At the same time, the General Staff, in the guise of the attorney general, questioned the military who claimed to have a witness to corroborate the disappearance of the troops, but no one had ever heard of this person. In the year 2002, the film "An Atrato dos Fudos" (An Army in Foul Play) was released. Directed by Mario Cavallini, it was a low-budget film about a long-forgotten case. "An Atrato dos Fudos" is a good film. It's not very long and it's not very exciting. The story itself is not very compelling and it's not very well written. The director does a good job in keeping the audience interested, and there are some good scenes and a couple of decent scenes. The cast does a good job in keeping the audience engaged, although they are sometimes out of place and not very well-done. However, the story is very good and you'll be very engaged by the film. This is a very good film and I recommend it.

In a society dominated by violence, parents and children rarely see eye to eye on any of their own. This documentary explores the differences between the values of the two main parenting styles in Italy, Italian parenting and the American way of parenting. The movie looks at how the Italian school system emphasizes formal schooling for children and their relationships, whereas the American school system emphasizes children's independence and independence of speech. It discusses why there is no hierarchy in the Italian school system, and why American parents choose to give their children more freedom in school. In conclusion, the movie is a good summary of the world of Italian parenting, and a good educational film for parents of American children.

The filmmakers of this documentary, Alberto Felice, Rosario Moretti, and Alberto Barberi, take a very interesting look at the making of an Italian film, A Trembling World: The Life and Work of Benigno Diaz (1968). In the course of their research, they interview and document the director's family and friends, and the staff of the film studio and studios. They discuss how the director took over a film studio from a painter, and how they went about working in it, as well as the history of it. They also talk about how he put in many resources, including his famous computer, to produce the film. The film is based on the director's own diaries. We are shown how he creates a unique type of film with his actors. A Trembling World is not a film that everyone will like, and not everyone will have the time to watch it, but it's a documentary that everyone should see.

Being a fan of Paul Morrissey, I have to say that I was quite surprised with this documentary. I was surprised because, from the reviews I read, I expected it to be really good, and it was. The reason I didn't expect it to be great is because Paul Morrissey, is a man that is a bit eccentric, and this documentary clearly shows that he does, indeed, have an interesting sense of humour, and it is amazing to see him perform. That being said, I can't say that he is a great singer. In fact, I have not heard a single one of his songs, and when I first heard them, they didn't really sound that great to me. However, if you like Morrissey, and you love his music, then you'll definitely enjoy this film.

I first saw this film on the news in 2002. It was so depressing and just plain nasty that I had to force myself to watch it again. It was the first film that made me aware of what was going on in Colombia and then on the news at the time. I knew that so many of the people were being tortured and killed and that there was just not enough going on to be able to make any sense out of it. But it was also very powerful in showing the desperation of the people that were being killed. The people who were the victims were probably more bothered about what the people in power were doing to them than what was going on. This film does a good job of showing that there are some people who are trying to make a difference and who are fighting for a better life for the people in Colombia. You may feel that the documentary is a little long and that you don't have a lot to take from it. But I think that it shows the desperation of the people and shows the extent to which the people have to fight and work together to survive. This film does a very good job of showing the problems in Colombia and I think that it is definitely a documentary worth watching.

The second DVD I ordered of Michelangelo Antonioni's director's commentary, was not in my opinion worth it. I have tried to view it for over 2 years and the only two featurettes I have seen of his work are not in English. But this is the first DVD I have had my eye on in a long time, so I bought it. The featurettes are all on DVD. There is much that is interesting about this director's work and his "love affair" with black and white films, but this film is not what I expected. It is much more interesting in the way it treats color and is thus a master class in color in black and white film. Antonioni interviews some of his contemporaries, including Georges Delerue, Henry Fonda, Vittorio Storaro, and Stanley Kubrick. The segments I have seen are really interesting, and are enjoyable in and of themselves. I watched the complete featurette on color. It is very interesting, but I felt that the "music of color" segment could have been made in a much more accessible way. I do think the "love affair" segment could have been more done to please the audience, but then that would not have been fair to Antonioni. The segments that are directed more toward the viewer, like the "language of cinema" segment or the "the logic of cinema" segment, were interesting. As with most features, the director's voice is heard, but it is not as a whole, which is what made the featurette much more enjoyable.

Although The Exotica: The Tour de France is still the main focus of this documentary, I find that it's worth the watch. Being a fan of cycling I've watched many of these films, and it's always been fascinating to see the inner workings of the cyclists, their families, their motivation, and what's behind their heroic victories. In this film, in particular, I enjoyed how the director tried to explain why so many people ride in extreme sport: not just for the thrill, but for the adventure. It's a very brave film, though, and so many moments will make you cringe, and for that reason it might not appeal to everyone. I've never liked Tour de France, it's always seemed like a great fun and entertaining spectacle, but this film isn't about that. It's about the culture, the sport, and the people who ride it. It's not about the experience of cycling, or a race. It's about an entire culture, and it's very rare to see a film about cycling that's focused on the human element. The film's characterizations of the many cyclists (or non-cyclists) are sometimes funny, but often very depressing. The director also does a good job of showing the motivation behind these legendary events. It's often too easy to blame the cyclist for their decisions, and it's very difficult to explain to the public why people go to extreme sports in the first place. It's also interesting to see how these stories are often misunderstood. Most of the people I've talked to about this film have had mixed opinions, but many people have found it very enlightening. The film has a very stylish and aesthetically pleasing look to it. It's a very easy-going, very minimalistic style, and it definitely fits the subject. The film is very professional, with great music (it's directed by director Klimov), and I found the voice-over narration to be very entertaining. I've never really been a fan of narration in films, but it's very well done here. The film also uses some nice camera angles, and it's always interesting to see the actual race. This film is a bit too detailed for the average viewer, but it's well-made and I think the viewer can relate to it. The main thing to note here is the incredible work of cycling's stars. When you consider the difficulties of filming and getting people to actually participate in these events, it's very interesting to see how the athletes' lives are affected by their fame and success. I hope this film is making people think about what they do on the track.

This is a very deep, meaningful documentary that also focuses on Italian society and religion. The interviews with leading religious figures are intercut with the interviews with working-class Catholics. They are all fascinating, from the working-class Catholic to the leading priests. You learn much about the history of religion in Italy, and how it became so entrenched in the lives of ordinary people. I was very surprised by how rich, sophisticated and contemporary the religion was in Italy. The culture of religion was very strongly integrated into Italian society. Italians could look at religious symbols, relics and symbols from the Middle Ages, and tell a story about it, and then have an argument about it. Religion was very much a part of everyday life in Italy. I think the great danger for this documentary was that it could become a little preachy. It was really interesting to hear about the differences between the Catholic church and other religions, and the difference between the cultures that religions come from. It was also interesting to hear that there were no religious people in Italy before the revolution. In the beginning of the movie, I felt like the director had tried to be too provocative, and he showed it through the interviews. But I think it was a good way to start the documentary, and to get the audience to see religion for what it really is. It is also very interesting to see how religion is used in Italian politics and society, both Catholic and Protestant. There is a very high concentration of Catholicism in the country, and I think it is really interesting to hear some of the debates that have come from that. I would have liked to hear more from the Protestants, but I think that was also very interesting. Overall, I liked the documentary, and would recommend it to anyone who is interested in religion.

This is a documentary which is based on a play written by Giovanni Battista Zacarias (1927 - 2013). In many ways this documentary is just a retelling of the play, but it has some very interesting anecdotes about the actual play. The film seems to be at times very intimate, sometimes quite sombre, sometimes joyful, but it is a very interesting film. We get to hear some of the cast of the play as they recall the work in detail. Some of the cast mention that they were much more willing to adapt the play than they have been in other productions and I believe that is one of the reasons the film has been successful. The film includes a discussion of the film, which is quite interesting. The cast are interviewed, and I'm thinking that most of them would have liked to be on camera but there is also the knowledge that most of them have gone on to other roles. There is also an interview with the director, who seems to be a friend of the cast. I enjoyed the film a lot and would recommend it.

I found this documentary extremely interesting and well presented. It is one of the few documentaries that brings you into a business. I can't understand why people get so hung up about this. All I have to say is that if you are in an industry and are looking for some good advice, it's always a good idea to see the professional's view of how a business is run. Here, they are all good and true. Of course, you will have to do your own research to find the information that you need, but it's always a good idea to read a few articles. Many professionals seem to over do this kind of stuff and it gets a little annoying. That's why it's so good to see the professional's view of how to make a good documentary. It's good to see a person who is in an industry and knows what they are talking about, not someone who is in a business that has no expertise in the subject. The fact that this film is not "vetted" by a medical doctor is great because the subject matter can be considered more of a personal health issue than a medical one. It's something that can be considered a personal choice, not something that can be studied. Overall, this is a great documentary that I recommend to anyone.

The truth is stranger than fiction. The Exotico is a Mexican history documentary that gives us the truth about Mexico City in the 80's. The problem with this film is that it really makes you feel embarrassed for Mexican people, and it makes you look like a moron for even paying attention to it. A lot of things that you learn in this movie don't actually make sense, and it's hard to take it seriously when you're trying to think about it, but the truth is stranger than fiction. The Exotico is a must-see for anyone who likes history or Mexico City. Anyone else, I suggest waiting for it on DVD.

This was a very interesting documentary. The first time I watched it I had very little interest in it. It was very slow and I kept thinking that it would get interesting. However, I was very surprised. After watching the documentary I started to get into it, and it had a very interesting narrative and plot. In particular, I liked how the narrator explained the Spanish Civil War. The one thing that I liked the most about the documentary was the focus on the local community. It was very fascinating and I was happy to see that the filmmaker was very interested in what was going on in the streets of Barcelona. As a whole it was a good documentary. The people in the documentary were very interesting and the location was very interesting. If you are interested in the history of Spain, the Civil War and the Spanish Civil War, then definitely watch this documentary.

Just watched this documentary on the web site of La Repubblica in Italy, and it was a great treat. I liked it more than the 2001 version, with the first-ever interviews with Eva's parents and her doctor. This one also gave us the story of Eva's friends and classmates, even before the tragic accident that took her life. This video, with all the red and blue envelopes containing messages, also gives the one of the best pictures I have ever seen of Eva and the famous autograph page. This is a great work, really well done.

This documentary is one of the most interesting things I have seen in a long time. It is a very diverse and original film, with a great cast, and does a great job at telling the story of the artists who were involved. I was also very surprised by the talent of the director, Maria Grazia Cattaneo, who is very talented and good at what she does. I think this film is going to get a lot of praise. My vote is seven. Title (Brazil): "Perche Mediterraneo" ("Lost on the Way")

I've never been a fan of Eduardo Galeano, but he made a good effort to show what life in a favela is like. While it was shot from the point of view of the inhabitants, they didn't speak to the camera. They just looked at the camera, looked at each other, and talked to each other. I'm glad that they showed people talking. Even the best looking ones. It was cool to see the favela in all it's trashy glory. They even filmed the favela from the outside, which makes it look even more dangerous. If you're a human being, you have to ask yourself if this would be a good thing for your life. If you're a human being, you might be offended by this documentary, but then again, it is showing the best of human nature. The majority of favela residents live in a sort of limbo. They're very good at making money, but they live in a very dangerous situation. It's not a good thing, and I don't know that I want to live in such a condition. The question is if it's a good thing for you, and that's the question that Galeano's the Exotico:| is asking. What would you do in your situation? Is it better to live in the favela or a prison? I think that the answer is yes, but not necessarily. I've seen a lot of people who live in the favela, and I've seen a lot of bad people in the favela. So in that sense, the movie wasn't about the favela, it was about the people who live in the favela.

First, I want to start off by saying that I am a big fan of the director,and the Cast members are also very well known. I also have a passion for film,which has been a fascination of mine since I was very young. In this documentary, I was not expecting anything in particular and I was very pleasantly surprised by the content and the tone. The cast is very good,and the interviews were well chosen. This is not a documentary about the film,but rather a collection of interviews from the crew of the film. However,it is definitely a film about a film and I was very impressed with the editing,the score and the sound effects. I think that this film is one of the best documentaries I have seen in recent times and I'm looking forward to the next ones. It has been a long time since I had the pleasure of seeing a film with the same special effects and sound effects as this one. The cast of this film is also quite good,and I was looking forward to seeing them. I felt that they were being interviewed very well and I was very impressed with their ability to perform their duties as a team. In fact,I feel that the cast and crew of this film are very well organized. All in all,this is an excellent film.It has been a long time since I have watched a film with such a special effect,and I was looking forward to seeing this one. However,if you are looking for a documentary about a film,then you will not be disappointed with this film. If you are looking for a documentary about a film,then I recommend you to watch this one,you will not be disappointed. I really enjoyed this film and I am looking forward to the next one. I think that this is one of the best documentaries I have seen in recent times,and I would recommend it to all.

In this film, we see how an important episode of our history took place. With that being said, it is an important episode because it sets the background for the events that happen on today's world. In this case, the beginning of the Italian Empire in the 14th century is considered important because the development of the state was based on this event. The film is shot in black and white, which is a very effective way to express the time in which this time was taken place. This makes it feel like it is in the past. One could think that this is because the filmmaker was trying to convey an image of a dark and medieval era. The question is, why was the film shot in this way? The answer is the artistic reason. The filmmakers are trying to portray the time in a way that is very striking and unique. For example, it is filmed in a way that will have you guessing what the audience will think. There are many moments that will have you wondering if the director is trying to tell you something or telling you nothing. The cinematography is also very interesting. The film is shot in a way that gives the audience the feeling that they are seeing something different. When a camera is set up next to the actors, you feel that they are actually "wearing" the camera. This is what we are seeing with the cast and the actors. In addition, the lighting in the film is also very different than what you would see in the theatrical version of the film. This gives you a sense of how the film is different. The film is also very well filmed. Each scene is shown in a way that will have you rolling in the theater. The editing is also very well done. The whole film is a very good job. It is a very interesting time capsule of history that is worth of seeing. In summary, this is an interesting and unique time capsule of our history that will give you a good idea of the kind of films that are being made.
