Pelicula: Gladiator

Pelicula: Gladiator | Ave Caesar, morituri te salutant! | Scoop.it

La película Gladiator, fue mi inspiración para escoger este tema de investigación.  Cuando vi la película por primera vez lo hice por puro entretenimiento, pero las lecciones que esta producción impregnó en mi vida son invaluables. Luego de ver el filme estrenado el años 2000, mi filosofía de vida cambio; “todos somos gladiadores y este mundo es nuestra arena”, lucha por vivir, por lo que anhelas, por tus ideales, defiende tus derechos, se estoico y lucha hasta la muerte.

Civilización y Crueldad: Los juegos romanos - Roland Auguet | Ave Caesar, morituri te salutant! | Scoop.it

Un gladiador, de movimiento torpe y rígido a causa de su armadura, se inclina, rodilla en tierra, mientras levanta hacia las tribunas, apenas esbozadas, su visera arqueada y extrañamente agujereada, en tanto que su mano derecha dirige hacia el hombre que yace a sus pies la espada curva con la que acaba de vencerle, y su calma, la mesura de sus ademanes, su indiferencia no son, para el niño que contempla la escena, los menores motivos de estupefacción.
