CRAZY – como curar a un gay en Jerusalén

CRAZY, film that portrays the homosexual conflict between a father and his son, arrives in Spain endorsed by its long list of awards and is based on the life of the co-writer, Francois Boulay.

Any excuse serves to tell a story. A spark of ingenuity, an unexpected situation, a moment of childhood, a smell, a flavour, a domineering father… ‘CRAZY.’, Canadian film that swept the last edition of the Gijón Film Festival, part of this last premise, of the confessions that the screenwriter of the film, Francois Boulay, shared with director Jean-Marc Vallée.

The terrain in which the North American film moves is synthesized in a simple question: What do you do if you are from Canada, you live at the end of the years 70 And you're not as straight as your daddy would have liked? now comes the answer: pack your bags and plant yourself at full throttle in Jerusalem. So that? to heal!

Those responsible for this Canadian film, that does not stop being the memory of a boy turned into a man, they explain that it is a "hymn to the family". The hymn thing, still being a play on words in the mouth of its director, it fits like a glove: the film's soundtrack is played by David Bowie, los Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd y Patsy Cline. Next to nothing.

‘CRAZY.’ takes advantage of family entanglements to review the history of this North American country between the sixties and eighties. Their customs, their peoples, your culture, its music, its literature, his permissiveness… during two hours, a song to tolerance is built that invites the new generations to reflect on the mistakes made by their parents, more than anything so that they themselves do not repeat them.

The 25 December 1960 nace Zachary Beaulieu, protagonist of the story. the kid, raised and educated in a humble and conventional family with five children to feed, he has always had a compelling need to get his father to accept him as he is. To make it, will try to repress his true sexual condition and will agree to make a 'therapeutic trip’ to Jerusalem to return home a man. An uncle. Un machote. A more masculine type than the bearded lumberjacks in plaid shirts.

The love between a father and a son is the main axis around which a solid ‘CRAZY.’ revolves.. Jean-Marc Vallée invirtió 10 years of his life in this project, which he defined in his time as his "artistic business card". He turned on the camera and let Zachary Beaulieu tell his story, with music and rebellion, joints and alcohol, and go back to the times of innocence to make peace with the man who gave him life.

La Generalitat quiere actuar judicialmente por el bloqueo del Aeropuerto de Barcelona

Interesante nota de informativos telecinco que dice así:

El gobierno catalán recibirá este miércoles un informe de sus servicios jurídicos en el que se especificará “en qué términos” puede personarse el ejecutivo autonómico en el proceso, si como acusación popular, como acción popular o de la mano del Ministerio de Fomento.

El gobierno catalán “hizo más de lo que le tocaba hacer”

“Cuando lo tengamos, lo haremos”, ha sentenciado el conseller de Presidencia y de Política Territorial y Obras Públicas de la Generalitat, Joaquim Nadal, quien ha añadido que el gobierno catalán hizo “más de lo que le tocaba hacer” para atender a las más de 100.000 personas que se vieron afectadas el pasado viernes por el bloqueo de El Prat.

En una rueda de prensa previa a su comparecencia, morning, junto con otros cuatro consellers, en la Diputación Permanente del Parlament, Nadal ha reconocido que con el despliegue “tal vez no siempre se pudo atender a todo el mundo” debido a la magnitud de los hechos.

Nadal, que ha subrayado que la Generalitat no tiene competencias en el Aeropuerto de Barcelona -instalación dependiente del Ministerio de Fomento a través de Aeropuertos Españoles y Navegación Aérea (AENA)-, ha insistido en que desde las 11.00 horas del pasado viernes, poco después de que unos centenares de trabajadores del personal de tierra de Iberia invadiesen las pistas para bloquear el tráfico aéreo, el gobierno catalán, con Pasqual Maragall a la cabeza, “estuvo al lado de la administración competente”.

La Mesa de la Diputación Permanente del Parlament ha acordado convocar para el miércoles la reunión de este organismo, que tendrá como finalidad analizar el conflicto producido en el aeropuerto de El Prat (Barcelona), y en la que comparecerán los consellers Joaquim Nadal (Política Territorial), Montserrat Tura (Interior), Antoni Castells (Economía, Comercio y Turismo), Marina Geli (Health) y Jordi Valls (Trabajo) para dar cuenta de la gestión realizada.

Going, through life looking
That one song can even die for love
And just know that your voice reached my poor heart that there will.

Going, through life looking
That sometimes what they say is not equal to what they will
And so something will have to change in this unequal world

I think even in the voice of people with good heart

Because I'm not the best,
Nor the worst…
So just am what I am, and so…
I do not pretend,
I am not going to lie…
I am just what I am and is so

Going, through life looking
Looking as simple as that is where we must begin
And just try to get to the other no matter what's behind

Going, through life looking
People who lose both look and ride.
And so are many lives that come and go and wonder where iran

I think even in the voice of people with good heart

Because I'm not the best,
Nor the worst…
So just am what I am, and so…
I do not pretend,
I am not going to lie…
I am just what I am and is so (x2)

Some go going, others are coming
Some go running and other cross walk
Some are laughing, others are suffering
That's what I look at when ever I walk

I want to imagine a new world
Where the cold accompany my walk
And love will be in the winter coat I can save

Because I'm not the best,
Nor the worst…
So just am what I am, and so…
I do not pretend,
I am not going to lie…
I am just what I am and is so

Going, through life looking
That sometimes what they say is not the same as it will make
Going…
