How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

How does Valentin’s pride become his greatest flaw? How can over confidence cause a person to make decisions that are not in one’s best interest? What is the difference between pride and confidence?

How does the director of this film compensate for the lack of dialogue to communicate the story and emotions of the performers? Are these same techniques used in modern movies with sound?
