【迷你小对话】

I just have to chime in and agree with all the praise heaped on this
movie. A movie is great when it shows a fundamental truth. What is the
fundamental truth of this movie? The truth is that sometimes people will
have an extraordinary reaction to evil around them, and can change their
basic nature. Why is this so powerful? Because it is so rare. Most
people do not change their nature. Especially when confronted by
situations where it is easier to just go along. Oskar Schindler makes a
moral choice to not go along. It is tough. It is dangerous. Yet, he
makes the choice.

A: I finally got the courage to have that talk with Patrick about our
future。

龙8下载网址,I was once watching a show about the holocaust. The show was about a
recently discovered photo album, by one of the killers taken at
Auschwitz. One comment that one of the narrators said really stuck with
me. “What made these people so monstrous, was that they were not
monsters.” That is the true horror. Ordinary people during this time
period were just doing there “jobs”. In other words, what was so
horrible about the Holocaust, was not that these people were deviants,
but that they were so ordinary, and that this happened in our
lifetime.

B: How was it?

In the movie Oskar Schindler starts out as an opportunist. He realizes
that he can become very rich by moving to Poland and taking advantage of
the desperate situation that has arisen there. He does this in a
masterful way, and soon becomes very rich. Gradually he realizes what is
going on around him he decides that he has to make a choice. The choice
is incredibly courageous. What was so extraordinary about his choice was
that so few people like him did so during this time period. After the
war, most absolved themselves of their responsibility by saying, “I was
only following orders.” An amazing story. Highest possible rating.

A: He said some very offensive things to me and had no regard for my
reaction. He was quite cavalier。

Offbeat trivia about this movie This movie was also written into a
script of Seinfeld. Jerry and his current girlfriend haven’t been able
to be alone. He decides to take here to a movie to make out. What movie
does he take her to? This one! This has to be one of the funniest scenes
ever in a comedy series. Who could write a scene that is potentially so
offensive, but yet hysterical. Much hilarity ensues when Jerry is
spotted making out during the movie by a relative.

A: 我终于鼓起勇气和Patrick谈了我们将来的事。

B: 情况如何?

A: 他对我说了些冒犯的话,而且根本不顾及我的反应。他真是目中无人!
