Camino <卡蜜諾>

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.

  1. Dear Lily:

    Actually, I really like what your daughter said to you. She is authentic to her value and her way of seeing things. After all, their western education is very individual oriented and straight forward.

    My mother sometime also has problem to adjust this situation when my daughter answer the question with a straight answer from her true feeling. This true feeling does not dampen any love she has for her grandma.

    I believe Connie’s answer will also reduce any love she has for you. It is just a honest and fact.

    Of course, with Chinese culture, we love to have a well understanding daugher who always put our feeling about her own. I never like this side of Chinese culture. It creates so much pain and guilt when you cannot honest show your feeling with no negative intention.

    Thank you for sharing your story.

    我的女兒Connie去年九月在溫哥華辦了婚禮.她是我唯一的孩子,整個婚禮儘可能按照她所喜歡的方式進行.我也全力配合,找了專業的髮型化妝,買了一套近三千元加幣的designer設計超完美禮服給我自己.可是晚上的婚宴,前排最明顯的位置,擺六個座位分別是新郎,新娘和各兩位男女儐相.這還不要緊,專業攝影師拍的照片,總共只有兩三張有我,而且還是很難發現順便帶到的.我雖然知道不能怪Connie,都是攝影師的錯(他不瞭解中國傳統父母親地位的崇高)但還是忍不住向她抱怨,你知道她怎麼回答我”Oh,please mom,it’s not your wedding”早知道就買三百塊的禮服就好.
