Yesterday we went to the ”Universidad Laboral” to see a film called ”BOY”.The film was quite long i didn’t like it, it was so boring! At the begining it was quite interesting but at least we finally started talking with my friends about something different.The movie was about a boy called ”Alamein” who lives with his ”Yaya”(Grandma), his brother(Rocky), some cousins and his goat ”LEAF”.His father was in prision because he was quite BAD,but he escaped with a Spoon. The father ”Shogun” came back to look for his money which was buried near the house of BOY’s family of, but when ”Shogun” came back he started to have a bad influence on his two sons. At the end of the film the father lost his money because ”leaf” ate it and he turned back to being good. At least in my opinion the movie was quite good but boring at the end.

Yesterday we went to the Laboral University to saw a film called Boy. The film was about a child called Boy that lived in New Zeland. He was poor and he lived with his grandmother , his brother called Rocky and his cousins. Boy has got a goat called “Leaf” too. One day his father arrived with two friends. They stayed at Boy’s house.

The film we watched this wednesday was called “Boy” and it was a realistic drama about the life of an aborigen child who was known by everyone as “boy”(although his real name was Alamein)  and his brother “Rocky” and their relationship with their dad, an ex-inmate who got out of the jail killing two guards with a tea spoon, a marijuana adict, and a real disaster as a father.

Boy was quite a lonely guy, he only had five friends, Rocky, his granny and a goat called “Leaf”. During the movie, he used to talk to the goat, and tell her invented stories about him and a girl from his school who he was in love with.

One day their granny went to town to a funeral and she asked Alamein to look after his brothers until she got back. The first days were nice, Alamein took care of his brother, his cousins, and the goat, he went to school, and everything was fine, but one day, while they were playing at home, they saw a black car coming into the yard. Inside the car there were three guys. One of them was Alamein and Rocky’s dad.

These three men were members of a gang called the “crazy horses” and, as they told them, they wanted to look for of a treasure they had buried after escaping from jail.

Alamein was really happy with his father, and they spent a lot of time together, but Rocky wasn’t as happy as his brother, because he thought his father blamed him because his mother died after he was born.

Days passed and the crazy horses, with Alamein’s help , looked for the treasure  persistently. Until one day, when Alamein, alone, found the plastic bag which contained one millon dollars. He was angry with his father, so he decided to keep it himself, and hide it where the goat lived, but one day, when he was going to show the money to his father, he saw the goat eating all the doughs. When he told his father, he got really angry, but after a period of the film in which everything went wrong, Rocky, Alamein, and their father ended up living like a family, and they could be happy.

The film, was quite slow and boring in some parts, but in general it’s interesting to see life  in poor countries, and feel the misery in some parts of the world, thats why I think “Boy”  is a good film, because it shows us that can get really hard sometimes, but at last, what counts is to have a family and good friends who will help you when you’re down.

I like the film we watched the other day because it was about a real situation in some countries. Most of children have to live without their parents and the film try to shows us this idea.It was about a boy called Alamein but all the people called him Boy.Boy lived with his family except his parents. Boy’s mother died when Boy’s brother was born. When Boy’s father appeared he had two friend. Boy tried to be like is father but a lot of bad things happened. They lost all their money, their friend and their car.                                                                                                                             By: Borja Muñiz Nicolás

Last Wednesday,we went to the Laboral to see a film called “Boy”.It was about a child who was born in New Zealand, he lives with his brothers and his Grandmother. The Grandmother went to Wellington and the children are left alone. Then Boy´s dad appears(he had escaped out of the prision, with two friends). He wanted to look for the money that he had hidden when he went to prision. “Boy” found it and he hid it.”Boy” and his dad argued and he told his dad that he has found the treasure and he has broken it(it was true)and his dad hit him.Then Boy´s dad´s friends escaped and he  left alone. When Boy´s Grandmother came back , Boy´s father was better and he started to be a good man.Ithink that this film is very good, I liked it because it is very realistic and the actors act very well. The theme is very interesting because it is real and the characters aren´t false(there are a lot of boys that begin to smoke at 11 years old)and we have to stop it .
