Feeling polyglot? Missing your own language? come and exercise your Spanish with this ; ]

Ali - PLOT 

Ali is 18 years old and is afraid of driving and falling in love. She works at a supermarket, which is like a high-school yard, except that she gets paid. Ali is a chain smoker. "Be wary of anything you can't do while smoking" is her motto. Since Ali started smoking, her mother has had five boyfriends and five depressions, and on every occasions Ali has had to be her mother's mother. That's why she's like the way she is, though she doesn't know that. Ali loves Julio but won't admit it. It's a lot easier to go on living in the impreganable world of Ali than cross over to the world of Alice.

    People, I spoke to the Cervantes during the weekend and arranged to reserve 30 places. So, as you arrive, please report at reception saying you are with the London European Club.

      Great stuff, Tiziana! Indeed I needed to hear this, as I just had not managed to do that booking... Great, see you tomorrow :-)

    Such a sweet movie from a first-time director - interesting how passing on her role as carer allows Ali to let go of her fears and take ownership of her own life. The necessity for her to keep her feelings under control, in order to stay in charge and protect her mother, her fear of emotional vulnerability connected with love, and more, are conveyed with an immediacy that goes hand-in-hand with the brightly lit stage of the supermarket. A lot to be said also for the other two characters (mother and 'nobio') who reveal themselves through their actions as much as through their words.
    Thanks to all of those who came - and to the subtitles! I would have been lost without them.

    it was a nice movie, but they talked very quickly difficult to understand, well at least the subtitles help.

    I am not sure i can make it for 6.30pm today. rather than waste 2 places and get a no-show on my file, I've decided to release and give a waiting list member the chance to see it. Enjoy!

      It is a no show if you change your RSVP within 24 hours

    Hi Tiziana

    I made my reservation over the phone, so I guess you can use my reserved place for someone.

    I have received an email from them saying that a group reservation has been made for 30 from LEC. My request for an individual reservations has not been confirmed and i guess it will be the same for anyone else mentioning LEC in the individual reservation requests??

    June 2, 2014

  • Tiziana

    I emailed them asking for a group reservation, but the address 'reservas' was not working for me. I will phone them, however, book individually and say you are coming with the European group (so they won't count you twice if I manage to confirm a 30people reservation)
