Mother and son are separated by a political border and miles of geographical space. Rosario, wanting a better life for her son, works in the US. Carlitos, her son, finally sets out to join her though he only has a little information on how to get to her. The trials and troubles of mother and son move the viewer, making it easy to want a happy ending to a tale filled with so many moments of hope and then uncertainly, dreams and yet doubt.
This movie will touch more than just one of your emotions, and it really emphasizes the bonds of family, the need for perseverance and the belief that anything is possible if you are willing to try.
This movie has a great deal to do with race relations during the Civil War, but it also has a great deal to do with people coming to understand one another, to realize that fighting for a common goal makes them all equal regardless of background. It shows that you do not have to be of one race or another to make a right decision over a wrong one or to fight for what you believe in.
This is one of those powerful movies that will stick with you. My friends and I watch it every now and again, and are always struck with the same strong emotions that this film cannot help but evoke. A definite recommendation.
Yurara is a teenage girl who can see ghosts and empathize with them. Mei and Yako can also see ghosts, and use fire and water respectively to get rid of them. Yurara is protected by a guardian spirit who takes over when Yurara is in danger. The guardian spirit is beautiful and has a distinct personality which is usually for more fiery than normal Yurara's meek self.
While it has an interesting plot-line, I would have liked to see it develop in a different, deeper direction. It's not a bad series, but not amazing. Yurara's guardian spirit is actually the most interesting character (in my opinion) but we never really learn that much about her. The normal Yurara is rather bland and nervous. Nevertheless, it is a pretty manga. Good for picking up when you don't want anything too heavy or thought-provoking.
The movie is humorous, though less crazy than Bringing Up Baby, with Grant's character finding himself still in love with Hepburn's although she is scheduled to be married to another man within a couple of days. Add to that a couple of reporters from the a nosey celebrity magazine, and it is not surprising that many things go awry before the date of the wedding.
Grant is humorous, Stewart is hilarious and Hepburn is the heroine, and all together they make for a wonderfully classic movie.
Mortimer Brewster: Look, Aunt Martha, men don't just get into window seats and die!
Abby Brewster: We know, dear. He died first.
Body's in the window seat! Honestly, priceless.
