Movie Reviews

Could be better -Spanish teachers expect boredom and sleepin
K. Stinson | Lake Orion, Mi USA | 10/25/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

"If your students are anything like mine they will be bored through at least 80% of this documentary. It could have been a lot better. Although, it does have a lot of good information, the way it is presented is lacking.Many people are talking about what this celebration means to them but it is just talk and by far not enough examples. Examples that could be presented better only get a few seconds in the spot light then it switches to someone talking infront of a wall or simple back ground. They should have had the people talking present their altar, art work, dance and more of the meaning behind it. Teachers look for something better."
Great educational video
Maria Vazquez De Luz | Hesperia , CA | 02/11/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I liked the video and used it in Spanish I level. Most of my students are non-native speakers so they got the whole version in English. They also got to see that this holiday is not just celebrated in Mexico, but here in Southern CA as well. However, I found the video too repetitive. The interviewees kept on saying the same thing over and over about the holiday. Therefore, if you use it in the classroom, I would either skip certain parts or just have them watch only about 20 to 30 minutes of it."
