Hello again from Porto, where after some Spring beautiful days, the rain is back. The weather outside is so disagreeable ! We are not happy. 

The best idea for a Saturday afternoon? Go to the movies. Captain America by Marvel's comic  or FrozenDisney's new animation. I decided Frozen.



Frozen 2013 | Disney Animated Movies

I was very curious about Frozen. Based on the Hans Christian Andersen story The Snow Queen, which combines a jumble of various heroines and heroes and a late-arriving villain, into a story that’s serviceable rather than inspired. Of course you know Andersen

Disney's new animation turns Snow Queen into a funny, touching adventure that could rescue the princess film - with not a prince in sight.

Frozen features two princesses... Oh ! Yes, speaking about princesses, I read an interesting article about the success of Frozen, the top-grossing animated film in box office history.

Did you know why Disney's Frozen is a film that conforms to "rules" established by US cartoonist Alison Bechdel?

The film have at last two female characters (Anna and Elsa) and a scene in which they converse on a subject that does not involve a male character or men in general. Yes, Anna and Elsa who have conversations about a range of topics, among them political matters in the fictional kingdom of Arendelle.

Films in which named female characters have conversations that do not revolve around men are likely to enjoy more box office success than films which do not, according to an influential US website.

Women do matter ! Read on Time magazine, and L'Express, two interesting articles . Oh ! That's nice. Because March is the women's month. 

Education:

I hope you don't miss to introduce Frozen in your lessons to explore the pedagogical insight about girls in the 21st century even we are talking about fairy tales.
