The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2011)

  • best_exotic_marigold_hotel_ver2“We get up in the morning, we do our best, nothing else matters…” 🙂
  • “The only real failure is the failure to try, and the measure of success is how we cope with disappointment, as we must.”
  • “The person who risks nothing does nothing, has nothing”
  • “Everything will be all right in the end, and if it’s not all right, then, trust me, it’s not the end”

(How true all of these lines are!! What surprise to find it in a film!)

A movie/film with unusual stories, unsual mostly because they have to do with reality. Set in India, where some young Indian people pursue their dreams, and some old people from Europe  intend to retire because it’s cheap…

The most astounding bit can be easily missed: how malleable humans can be, like their very malleable human minds! It’s funny we give Fixed Identities such Fixed Values, when the truth is we enjoy freedom, nice company and simple things much more than we want to believe!

Anyone can watch this movie. It makes you smile, and it might be inspiring! It’s about life and mistakes and good decisions.

EFL students can also get used to Indian English and/or British English.

More on the film…

  2. Hello Michelle. It’s great to hear from you! That is Alicia. Perhaps you don’t remember me, but I was in your class last year. Anyway, I think this project is amazing, so I’ll be delighted to buy it, and above all, to read it. Oh, by the way, i’ll take the chance of giving you thanks for your web, Talking People, for the great effort you do to keep it on. It’s very useful and not only me, but some friends too, are learning a lot with it. Congratulations!
