In the years since its release, the film has gained a cult following. At her new school, she forms a friendship with a group of girls considered outcasts. Owing to his keen observation of detail and unfiltered representation of society, Balzac is regarded as one of the founders of realism in European literature. Inanimate objects are imbued with character as well; the city of Paris, a backdrop for much of his writing, takes on many human qualities. Many of Balzac's works have been made into films, and the.

By the age of 15, Meza Torres aspired to be like his father and became involved in organized crime. He was popular on social media for posing in pictures with his weapons and for following his father's footsteps.
Meza Torres' pictures later served as inspiration for other teenagers aspiring to join organized crime in Mexico. His criminal career was short-lived, however. Meza Torres was killed at the age of eighteen following a routine traffic stop in Zapopan, Jalisco, on 25 April According to the police, Meza Torres and one of his accomplices were pulled over, but they tried to intimidate the policemen by flashing their weapons.

El Verdugo / Honoré de Balzac
They meet a poor fisherman, and ask him to guide them to a local landmark on the coast. On the way they pass a small cave where a man lives in isolation. Louis and Pauline ask the fisherman to tell them the story of the man in the cave. The man is named Pierre Cambremer. He was a fisherman with a wife and a son named Jacques. Jacques was a young man who liked to drink and gamble, and had one day stolen a gold coin which his mother had sewn into a quilt.
His father discovered this, and punished the son by tying him up, and throwing him into the sea. Pierre's wife died shortly afterwards. Pierre in his grief left his home, and eventually settled in the cave. His former assistant and friend is Doctor Horace Bianchon. One day Bianchon sees Desplein going into the Saint-Sulpice church, and follows him. He sees Desplein alone attending a mass. After Desplein departs, Bianchon questions the priest and finds that Desplein attends a mass at the church four times a year which he himself pays for.
A few years later, Bianchon again sees Desplein going into Saint-Sulpice for the regular mass. This time he questions Desplein about it. Desplein explains that the mass is in memory of a friend of his, a water carrier named Bourgeat. When Desplein was a poor medical student, Bourgeat was his neighbour in the same building. All to no avail — turns out that his last job as an executioner is that of electrocuting the same son!
Two of my favourite stories — The Man who Hated Time and Seventeen Oranges — were both about theft, in two very different ways. Seventeen Oranges was hilarious! But I have only vague memories of The Man Who Hated Time — a watch smuggler gets caught by the ticking of the watches? The story is told in flashback by a tramp with a silver watch, to a stranger he meets in a cafe. The stranger thinks the tramp was the smuggler, but it turns out he was the Customs Officer, who accepted a bribe from the smuggler and began working with him — until he was caught and jailed.
Thanks for that! Now I remember perfectly. With the death of Berlanga, a lot of his work is being rediscussed. Berlanga was eventually kicked off it for refusing to change the ending, and the last scenes were written by this priest and another director finished the filming. The end has to be seen to be believed.
Spanish TV broadcast his film La Vaquiila The Heifer a madcap comedy set in the Spanish Civil War, which he actually wrote in the s, although given the story, no way it could have been actually produced in those times. And filmed in one of my favourrite places, the village of Sos de Rey Catolico: that it not a set!
Or cinematically superb? Incidentally, while reading about Berlanga I read that he prided himself on being the director most frequently summoned by the Spanish censor board to answer charges! Any person Franco derides can only be good! Have to look up Berlanga at the local videothek! The end is so, so, so…. Some of the European films are really good but as you rightly pointed out we often miss out on important dialogues. Believe meyou cannot depend on subtitles they sometimes mess it up with incorrect translations. Yes, they can truly mess them up : English language films are dubbed in Spain: there is a huge industry and actors specialising in the field so it is the best it can be.
Dubbing also allows for a more detailed translation as in subtitling you inveitably have to shorten and summarise. However, I find that I prefer reading subtitles with the original voices rather than the dubbing for films in languages I do not know, Italian, French or even Japanese. Somehow, even without the words, the tone, the inflection, the way of speaking, says a lot to me. Not to mention how hilarious dubbing can sometimes be.
The dialogues have to be translated fully and match the lip movements as far as possible — it leads to a lot of weird sounding dialogues. Through a mix-up in ticket booking, I once ended up watching Jurassic Park in Hindi and it was more comedy than action-thriller because of the dialogues — the translation of the swear words was absolutely hilarious! That way films and TV series dubbed in Spain are amazingly well-done, I have to admit. Dialogues are translated so that lips match a very different sentence, especially in close-ups.
Guess it comes from long experience.
Still, if I have a chance to watch the original version, always do. As you say, a major part of acting is voice…. My parents live in Meerut, having shifted there after my father retired in Around that time, Jurassic Park part 2, I think was released, and since the English film audience is very limited in Meerut, only the Hindi dubbed version was shown.
Mum and Papa had enjoyed the first film, so they decided to go watch the second, even if it was in Hindi. My mother still laughs when she remembers the experience — the Hindi dialogues were ridiculous! Bawa, I wish more cinema and TV companies would take lessons from that!

Not necessarily emote. Listening to a flat and toneless voice droning on while the actor onscreen is obviously doing a fine job of acting can be very frustrating. The people doing the dubbing in Spain are actors, some of them very wll-known in their own language: this is a lucrative occupation for actors here! And they change their voice according to the actor they are dubbing: forninstance, it is one actor who usually dubs for Dustin Hoffman, Robert de Niro and Sylvester Stallone.
There are dubbing directors and a whole production team. I can believe the Hindi dubbing to be awful! Curiously enough, dubbing into English in the US and UK is also really terrible, because there is no real tradition of doing it.
