    Great movie, the plot is simple but the idea is extremely killing. We need more ethic education media materials and I'm not talking about old learning books, I'm talking now about movies, musique videos and so on. Media-Education. It will help pupils to grow up tolerant, patient, self-controlled. Education in Canada have a stronger ethical basis than the US, as I recently understood by reading <a href="">Huffingtonpost</a>. And the youth must be taught to fight with all kinds of discrimination in schools/colleges and universities.
