Movie Review : Die Päpstin / Pope Joan

Women have to stay at home and have no right to be educated. If they know too much their womb will shrink and they can't bear childrens. And because women should bear as much children as possible, the clergy does everything to keep women away from education.
But there exist one young woman, the daughter of a pastor, Johanna who doesn't want to live that way. Her mind thirst more and more knowledge. She loves reading, is interested in medecine and she understands the interpretations of verses from the Bible. That's the reason why she awoke the interest of an instructor from the near convent school who teaches her as far as it was possible.
After that Johanna masquerated herself as a man and as monk she goes her way to the summit of the Christian community.

2 and 1/2 hour, I was rivetted on this movie. This drama really touched my heart and I was deeply moved. It shows how cruel the clergy can be and how men thought of women and what they made to get their way. It's fascinating how Johanna lives among the monks without being discovered and gets the honor she deserves for who she is and what she can. Without living as a man, she had never gotten the honor of any of those men.
If you like critical movies, than this movie is perfect for you.

Still Alive

Hey! I'm sorry people that I didn't write anything for a long time, but first I was sick, than trouble with somebody at school (she says I'm not coming to school but I'm having fun. She doesn't realise that I'm making a behaviour therapy and it's no fun at all having a social phobia and the begin of a personality disorder.) Then I was sick again... Now on sunday there was mine and Faye's BIG DAY, the dog show at Merelbeke Belgium. Oh and we did pretty well, even if everything pointed out that it would be a total disaster around a half hour before I had to present her. But we made the first place with a very good and became spéciale de race meilleur jeune. But in the ring of honor, we just made the last place, 5th...But well the judge didn't even look anymore at Faye. He seemed to have already his favorite.
We nearly also good a CAC even if Faye's class wasn't allowed. But they had to call me out 3 times until I realised that my number was called out. So I guess because of that I had no chance anymore for the CAC.
After all it's a very good result for our first time. I got a diploma and a cup which are making me very proud.
I got such a cool gift from my mum =) a bead for my Pandora bracelet. But a wolf bead I can't get here in BeNeLux =(
Well...I'm going now trying to draw my wolf painting. But my finger hurts because Kero, the black cocker spaniel of my mum bite me as I tried to help him as Faye attacked him as he went on my bed and pressed me. -.-""

By the way, the winner of my contest is...
