Movie Reviews

Central America In a Nutshell
Robert Paradise | 09/03/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD includes 14 chapters addressing areas or cultures within Central America.

Several of these are candidates for separate extensive DVDs. I would enjoy a DVD that provides more in-depth video of a transit of the Panama Canal, from ocean to ocean.

The video quality was very good for some of the chapters, while for others it was merely fair.

Overall, it is the most comprehensive DVD that I'm familiar with on the subject. The narrative is in Spanish. I have been unable to access the English subtitles.
One of the best in the series
lynn98109 | Seattle, WA USA | 12/20/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"There are two sections, about 25 minutes each. The first is the Panama Canal (history, panama city, crossing the canal, Chocoes Indians, Portobello and Colon); the second is the Central American Confederation - I hadn't known the 5 nations were once one country - includes the Mayas, Guatamala, El Salvador, Hondouras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica (Panama was already covered; and was part of Columbia until it broke away to have the Canal dug).

Narrated in Spanish; unlike hte earlier DVDs in the series which have subtitles in 4 languages (Spanish, English, French, Italian), it only has subtitles in 3 languages (English, French, German). (I have 6 of them - so far.)"
