“Then he was sorry for the great fish that had nothing to eat and his determination to kill him never relaxed his sorrow for him. How many people will he feed, he thought? But are they worthy to eat him?  No, of course not. There is no one worthy of eating him from the manner of his behavior and his great dignity.”

Alamar

Alamar is about Natan, 5 year old boy who is moving to Italy with his mother after she and his father ended their relationship. This film follows Natan and his father on their last summer together. 

Whenever I watch a film, I always do a little research about it afterward and I read that this was filmed and “directed” by a team of two people! I’m so impressed, as this was such a beautiful and real film. While some scenes were staged, the story and the characters are all real.

 "Nobody will ever know how much I love Diego. I don't want anything to hurt him, nothing to bother him and rob him of the energy he needs for living, for living as he likes, for painting, seeing, loving, eating, sleeping, being by himself, being with someone . . . But I'd never want him to be sad. If I had good health I would give him all of it, if I had youth, he could take it all, I am not only a mother fool, I'm the embryo, the germ, the first cell potentially that engendered him. I am Diego from the oldest and most primitive cells, which will in time become him. At every moment he is my child, my child born every little while, every day from my own self."
