Yesterday, we watched Slumdog Millionaire, how amazing is that movie? It was very touching and hit me as true, thing is we have very similar slums here in Egypt, and no one ever does anything about them. We also have the same violence (police station) and the begging.. so, yeah, the movie hit me and it moved the little voice within me that nags "this has to change". I am also in love with Frienda Pinto's simplicity, I have that kind of skin color, yellowish tan and I love this; the music was pretty!..anyway, I couldn't believe that Dev Patel is only 19! (the kids were also incredibley cute!) Can you tell I loved the movie?

 



isn't he the cutest little kid? here

Have you read the book Q&A, the one that Slumdog Millionarie is based on? The names, etc, are different...and I think that it is a great book.

oh slumdog millionaire! i watched a couple of weeks ago and i quite liked it although i was a bit depressed after the ending. I know it was supposed to be a feeling-good movie but watching all those little children living like this was kinda painful..
