I’ve been thinking for an hour about which film I want to write. I’ve seen a lot of movies that I like very much so I have to decide one into the world of the cinema. There are many directors I appreciate like Woody Allen, David Lynch, Tarantino, Guy Ritchie, Scorsese, etc. and many kinds of films like the independent cinema, Latin American cinema, foreign films, and more. For this opportunity I choose the movie called AMÉLIE (in French, “Le Fabuleux Destin D’ Amélie Poulain”). As you can see, this is a French movie directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, which premiered in 2001 starring Audrey Tautou, a good and adorable actress. The movie is classified as a comedy. Actually, is about a simple story of a young girl that works in a restaurant and lives alone. One day she decides to changes her life. In her department, Amélie discovered a hidden box of a child in the bathroom that contains toys and photos that have 40 years. Then, she decides to search the person who owns that little box by a special way. If he is happy, she’ll dedicate her life to helping others. And so it is. She invented originals ways to caused happiness to others. For example, when she took the arm of a blind person walk through a market as he whispers what she will see.
This is a special movie because it shows simples acts and ways to enjoy the life. I love the character; Amélie is an innocent, humble, sweet and special person. She enjoys simple things like reaching into a bags of beans, breaking the caramel cover of Crème Brule, to see the faces of the people in the cinema, etc.
I cannot forget to say that I enjoyed so much the music of the film performed by Yann Tiersen, the photography, the script and all the performance.

The Vote

I have living in Chile for about eleven years so I never vote. The old law not allow me to vote because I must to have 21 years old and five years of residence in Chile. I fulfil the last requirement but for the last elections of president I wasn’t 21 years old. One of my duties as Argentina is that I can vote at the Embassy of Argentina to the presidential elections, when Cristina Kirchner won. In this opportunity I didn’t vote because I’m out from politics of my country, I don’t know well about the reality day by day.
For this election I was offended with my father because I could vote but he never told me. We discussed and he was convinced he told me about the change of the law. This new law
register us automatically in the base of dates. So I didn’t participate even I never checked if I was table vowel. Miserably, I’m part of this 60% of people who didn’t participate. Actually, I think is very important that everyone vote to be part of democracy of the country. Anyway, I can understand some of people who don’t participated. From what I’ve heard, for example my brother, he didn’t vote because he doesn’t believe in the system. He said that all the politics are part of the same. The political parties don’t matter because all are corrupt. Many people say that the changes must be in different ways and “not provide voting”.
