Taking upon the example of other bloggers who are kind enough to answer readers based upon keyword questions, I will do the same for those of you who landed in my humble blog.
A perennial favorite:
- "Cortazar, Casa Tomada"
It's an Argentinean short story. The classic interpretation is to see it as a metaphor of Peronism. The author, though, refused that interpretation. But who cares about the author, anyway. He is dead, in a literal and metaphorical sense.
Not sure what you meant by that. We exist. We have lives. We are human beings.
"Causes of death Yekaterina Golubeva"
I have no idea, and I don't think the family is talking about it either. My guess is an overdose, since she was living with Leos Carax, not the healthiest person in France, but I can be completely wrong.
- "Movies about student behavior"
I would definetely recommend Laurent Cantet's The Class (Entre Les Murs). He is my favorite living French director, along with Olivier Assayas. I will write more about Laurent Cantet soon. "The Class" is the story of a high school teacher in a banlieu (kind of an inner city neighborhood) in Paris. Although some of the issues that the movie raises are specifically French problems, it has an universal appeal. I recommended the movie to a former student who is now doing Teach for America in an inner city school, and ze said that ze could identified so much with the main character and the students.
- "Bathroom signs in Spanish"
"Hombres/Caballeros" for Men, "Mujeres/Damas" for Women
-"Roberto Valentino grave"
He is buried at the Hollywood Forever Cementery in Los Angeles. I highly recommend the visit. If you happen to be there, don't miss Johnny and Dee Dee Ramone graves.
