La Salada
8 August 2014 | by CativaSee all my reviews

I saw this film in the Bafici. Good one. Before the film was shown, the director Martin Hsu received some con decoration from the ambassador of Taiwan. The Ambassador spoke some words in a foreign tongue. Some girl was translating in a weird Spanish. The ambassador must be a funny guy because at one point the translator was laughing so hard that we couldn't understand what she was saying.

Anyway, it was a funny incident because this movie is about this: about how different cultures can share the some territory in peace, no matter if they understand or not. Some people can even fall in love with and no word is said.
