A film we needed to see

"El olvido que seremos" is a film with a particular feeling, highlighting the life of a man who fought for causes that are still of interest to the Colombian nation today. The way in which he approaches character development is appropriate and fits the Medellin's Society of the 70s and 80s, with an invaluable accuracy in the sets and costumes. The emotional relationship between shots and color to differentiate two different periods contribute to the greatness of the film, accompanied by good performances.

However, the film continues to depend on the original novel, and certain scenes do not have the same power that they surely have in the book and some errors in the editing that can be, rarely, stressful to the viewer, do not interfere with the fact that this film has a soul. , and very appropriate for our times.

Emotiva - Moving

Cuando has leído el libro y conoces la historia, la película te conmueve aún más. Lloré de principio a fin con todo lo que Héctor Abad Gómez representaba para su familia y para la gente, y lloré recordando las injusticias de la vida y de la muerte.

When you have read the book and you know the story, the film touches you the double. I cried from the beginning to the end with everything Hector Abad represented for all his family and for the people.

EL OLVIDO QUE SEREMOS--My Mission in Life!

Last Week...If You had said to me: "Tony...I have never seen a Colombian Movie! Please recommend one!" "Just ONE???" I would have responded... "Sorry... But there ARE SEVERAL!" After experiencing EL OLVIDO, twice in recent days... Without flinching a microsecond, I have found my MISSION in life: Getting every human on Earth to do the same!

"You are Sooooooooo INTENSE!" BOTH My only daughter AND my Colombian wife often tell me! Of course, they are right! When you feel PASSION about something...ANYTHING... You know You are STILL ALIVE! EL OLVIDO is the most intensely Colombian film I have EVER seen! Yet, simultaneously, one of the most universal and HUMAN! And You certainly don't have to have lived in Colombia for 1/2 of the 70's & 80's, as I did, to appreciate just how SPECIAL EL OLVIDO really is!

University Profesor Hector Abad Gomez (Fleshed out stunningly by Spaniard Javier Camara...with an absolutely impeccable regional Colombian accent, I must add!) refuses to be labeled. Nevertheless, almost everyone on the right defines him as "Comunista!" or "Marxista!" Conversely, hardcore Leftists slur him as "Oligarca!" But Profesor Abad ostensibly is not really phased by being the object of intense hatred from both ends of the political spectrum. He forges ahead, living life one day at a time, speaking truth to power, completely intransigent in the face of ever mounting pressure to keep his outspoken opinions to himself!

I am an junky! Here is my "KISS ENGLISH CHALLENGE!" Find ME ONE OTHER film with well over 1,000 votes, where LESS than 3% of viewers have Rated it 4**** STARS or LESS!!!.... Good Luck! My CHALLENGE is going to keep you very busy for quite a while!
