A couple of weeks ago, we had the opportunity to see in Oral Expression 2 what I consider one of the greatest movies of all times, " twelve angry men" I had seen it before but I really enjoyed it again. How human miseries are exposed when a group of men have the big responsability to decide about an eighteen year-old boy's life. The mere fact that he is of latin origin is sufficient reason to find him guilty of murder in first grade.How a hypocritic society react before difference. How each of these men put much of their own frustrations and personal experiences and make them weight at the time of voting for guilty.Only an old man felt compassion for the boy and argued he did not certainly know if he was guilty or not; only a man could value life beyond prejudices.
