agora die säulen des himmels

I've read comments by people on internet sites, say silly things to the effect, this film opened my eyes as to what Christianity is about. We have the same concerns today, and although codified and addressed by legislation for local morays, and investigated and codified by alleged behavioral experts, people are still pretty touchy about anything remotely informative that doesn't gybe with their ideals: as a for instance; sex in this case. Land: Spanien 2009 Dauer: 126 Minuten. We have the absolute mind numbed moronic thinking of the masses verse the practicality of those who know they do not know everything, but have a thirst for knowledge, and to share that knowing with others so that they can live a life free of fear. I used to be a Roman Catholic, but am now an apostate. Only she seems to be guided and motivated by an inspiration to reach for The Infinite.

To describe Agora as epic is no idle exaggeration, for this film attempts to document the brutal and often bloody rise of Christianity in 4th Century Alexandria, at the heart of the Roman Empire. Schon an dem Lehrer-Schüler-Verhältnis zwischen Hypatia und Orestes wird der emanzipatorische Gestus des Films deutlich. Vor dem Hintergrund eskalierender Straßenkämpfe zwischen Christen und Heiden verlieben sich zwei Männer in Hypatia: ihr Sklave Davus Max Minghella, Syriana und ihr Schüler Orestes Oscar Isaac, Der Mann, der niemals lebte. This film has done an excellent job of sifting through the dross as well as the meagre fifth century records to present a picture of one of the most intriguing figures in history. Historical accuracy aside, the underlying truth of our shared human history is represented here correctly enough.

Dass sie in der Gesellschaft trotz ihrer ausgeprägten Fähigkeiten auf Widerstände stößt, unterstreicht den Emanzipationsaspekt weiter. Auf dem Marktplatz griechisch: Agora schaukeln sich die religiösen Debatten immer weiter hoch, bis sie in blutigen Auseinandersetzungen eskalieren. Denn wann hat schon mal eine Frau die Hauptrolle in einem Historienschinken übernommen? With everything that's going on in the world today - religious extremists ready to bomb people into oblivion because they have differing beliefs - this film resonates with relevance. The rest merely cower to the polity dominating the social terrain. Written by Goofs At the end of the movie, Johannes Kepler is correctly credited as the actual discoverer of the elliptical nature of planetary orbits.

The single disc offers play. The shades, the nuances, the costumes, the smells and the sounds are all there in spadefuls and it is impossible not to believe the film was actually shot on location in that ancient and unspoilt city. But fear is primal, and infects everyone and everything like a plague spread by rats. Pasternak hit the nail on the head, when it comes to Hypatia and Kyril; even though he wasn't writing about them, of course. They really and truly are. .

Obwohl Alejandro Amenábar es nicht immer versteht, die für ihn neuen Möglichkeiten sinnvoll mit dem Inhalt zu verknüpfen, ist ihm insgesamt dennoch ein recht unterhaltsames Historienepos gelungen: Eine Vertiefung der in der Anlage spannenden Thematik hätte dem Film trotzdem gut zu Gesicht gestanden. . . It is a warning to all of us, if more warnings were needed, of just how dangerous religious zealots can be. Hypatia is often painted in sexist terminology or presented as symbol of a particular religious viewpoint, or of two opposing ones. There is no evidence that Cyril had anything to do with the death of Hypatia.

Although her former slave doesn't see it that way. An interesting film chronicling the early years of Christian development when the rising power of the Church began to overwhelm the opposition in the form of the persecution and martyrdom of the pagan mathematician Hypatia at the hands of a mob of 'Christian' fanatics. Some time ago I read some radical feminist who claimed that Hypatia was the victim of discrimination against women. I am not referring to faith, which is an internal relationship with God; I mean the outward demonstration of faith, which is both unnecessary and disparaging. It takes a brave person to stand-up to the mob, and in 4th Century Alexandria, it was an acclaimed teacher, astronomer and philosopher named Hypatia, whose sacrifice at the hands of the Christians in defence of her scientific beliefs is remembered in this film.

Auch die Tatsache, dass die spanische Produktion in englischer Sprache gedreht wurde, fügt sich in dieses Bild. So many aspects of our human history are irrevocably lost; intellectual development, shared compassion and understanding, a sense that we are no different from one another. I truly did not think so, and believed that Hypatia's memory would have to live on with what little history there was written about her, and the blurb mentioned once or twice by Carl Sagan as he recounted the once magnificent library of Alexandria. Die Lage spitzt sich zu, als das aufkommende Christentum die Stadt in einen blutigen Glaubenskrieg stürzt und Hypatia zwischen die Fronten gerät. Auch die zweite Liebesgeschichte des Films darf kein Happy End haben. I still have enormous affection for the teachings of Jesus, but now hold that the worst thing that ever happened to Christianity was when Constantine made Christianity the state religion for the Roman Empire.
