Today, “Slumdog Millionaire” is released in Spanish cinemas and I can't help recommending that movie to anyone interested in Asia.
It was released here about a month ago, and I, trying to escape the crowds, went to see her the following weekend. The story he tells is that of a boy raised in the slums of Bombay who is presented to the Indian version of the contest "Do you want to be a millionaire?" ... and correctly answers question after question, until reaching the final.
Presenter and police do not explain how it is possible for a stray, without any formal education, to surpass academics and scientists so they stop him to question him, the night before the last question.
Jamal Malik, the contestant, begins to narrate his life and we see how, through his tragedies and miseries, he has learned what would later be the right answers.
Danny Boyle's film has love, 'Bollywoodian' inspired music, action, intrigue ... and, thanks to the right interpretations, many ballots to take several Oscar '. If you have traveled to India, in its scenes you will recognize landscapes and credible situations. If you have not done it yet, well, it may not be the kindest face of that immense country, but keep in mind that there are slums, poverty and crime from Bombay to New York, passing through Madrid or Barcelona.
