The Proposal – Film Analysis. Oamenii se nasc buni  10 Things I Learned: The Tin Drum. By Curtis Tsui {*style:<a href='javascript:void(0)'>*}Prev Director Volker Schlöndorff declined producer Franz Seitz’s requests for him to adapt The Tin Drum many times, as he thought the novel was so narratively complex as to be unfilmable.

10 Things I Learned: The Tin Drum

He changed his mind after his own memories of childhood seaside visits began to give him ideas for ways to visualize the book’s beach scenes. Schlöndorff found the linguistic complexity of Grass’s German text so daunting that he was inhibited in his attempts to adapt it. He found a way around this problem by writing the first draft of the script in French, with the help of Jean-Claude Carrière, then translating it back into German (pictured here). România în chiloţi.

Top Five Documentaries of 2012

Like Baraka and films such as Koyaanisqatsi before it, Samsara is a completely wordless documentary that tells its story through images and in that respect holds a close relationship with my #1 documentary of the year. Director and cinematographer Ron Fricke tells a tale of our world today, where we've been and where we're headed with such eloquence you don't ever feel as if you are being bombarded with a message as much as you are coming to terms with reality. Shot over five years, in twenty-five countries on five continents, Samsara is truly majestic.

For companies trying to choose between improving employee engagement and boosting workforce wellbeing, Gallup research provides good news.

Environment More Important Than Leave Policies

"Employers can improve both aspects at the same time," says Jim Harter, Ph.D., Gallup's chief scientist of workplace management and wellbeing. What's more, the research strongly suggests that "the nature of the work environment may have more of an effect than workplace policies on overall wellbeing," Harter says. The researchers weren't surprised to find higher levels of wellbeing among engaged employees. Employee engagement is a much stronger predictor of overall wellbeing than factors such as hours worked, weeks of vacation time taken, and flextime allowed, according to new research by Harter and Sangeeta Agrawal, a Gallup research manager.
