Searched Opus Dei on wikipedia after watching this movie. I need to know more about Opus Dei before I could completely understand what this movie is about.
I don’t think this movie is anti anything. The real intention for the director is to present a story ( true or not true ) about how an innocent and an imaginative girl’s intuitive reaction to the adult world. Adults interpret things in ways that match their beliefs. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we can live in a wold like Camino’s, with innocence and real human reaction without any dogmatic manipulation from outside world. I am more than ever convinced that we all choose our own religion and should respect every religion with no prejudice.
I love you, Camino, the eyes, the smiles, the hair and the youthful vitality.
Always love a movie that can stimulate discussion. For this reason, I highly recommend it for people who are ready for an intense movie. Do remember to check your prejudice at the door so you can keep an open mind.
If one day, flowers give up their fragrance because butterflies are no longer flying.
If one day, people refuse to shed a tear of sympathy because we only see with indifference.
If one day, the air is filled with extinction and the earth foregoes the thirst for life.
If one day, you are no longer standing by my side, I will lose the strength to grow.
Just hold my hand and let me lean on you
I’ve always understood the pain of growing
It’s just that I can’t do it without you
Let’s raise our arms and form a solid circle
Love is our gift and we are the light for the future
As long as we share the same dream
From now on the air is no longer filled with despair
No more unnecessary tears
Open the window and feel the warmth of the sun
And you see the birds flying free
我女兒Candice是《慾望城市》（Sex and the city）的死忠粉絲。也謝謝 她在Sex and the city尚未成為社會文化現象時介紹我認識了它。從此我也就愛上了這部影集。我也曾跟許多年輕人說，要學習現代的生活英文，Sex and the city 是最好的教材。為了學英文而看Sex and the city 是多麼好的藉口。
Sex sells. Vanity sells. Fashion sells. 但Sex and the city的成功卻是它代表了一群獨立，自主，有智慧，有勇氣做真實自己的大都會區新女性的生活態度。它真正的主軸其實仍然是愛情與友情。
這次Sex and the city的故事雖然是標準的Hollywood公式，我仍然很高興看到西方文化對如何做一個真實的自己的態度及方法：
