Una Vita Vecchia Ed Un’Alba Nuova

En la escena de los flamencos la santa le dice a Jep ¿porque no has escrito otra novela? y él le contesta que a estado buscando la gran belleza.

Jep a vivido durante sus 65 años una vida desolada rodeado de lujos y de deseos carnales. La santa vuelve y le pregunta ¿si sabe porque ella come raíces? y ella le contesta  porque “las raíces son importantes”.

Una planta sin raíces se seca y muere. Una persona sin amor, sin alguien que le llene su existencia de razón, es un ser humano vacío. El amor da vida y la amargura da muerte.

Jep perdió su primer amor desde joven y nunca lo supero. El amor es la tierra fértil para la gran belleza que buscaba él. Todos tenemos oportunidades nuevas como el amanecer de todos los días.

Una vida vieja y un amanecer nuevo. ¿Crees que el amor es eterno?

The Great Beauty of Teaching

It’s a new semester, and I began anew my teaching activity. With pride and mostly with a high joy that comes from the attitudes, smiles and interest from my students.

A new course I’ve been working on of late is the new Italian Cinema and Culture (cineitalia.netedu.info), a trip (yeah) in this fantastic territory of the Italian peninsula and its regions as seen through the lenses of its cinema. We’ll explore titles from just after WWII and jump to Naples’ mafia wars; we’ll go from Rossellini and Antonioni to the Giallo of Mario Bava and Dario Argento. And more. But that’s it for today, because today we watched The Great Beauty, the extraordinary film from Paolo Sorrentino (2013). Yes, the same Sorrentino of The Young Pope that aired on HBO.

Students appreciated it. Next Wednesday (Monday is Veteran’s Day here) we’ll host an in-class video critique and dialogue on the movie.

Here’s the semester-full gallery of movies we’ll hopefully watch: Programma.
