    Some said the scenes were indecent and painful, some found them powerful, appreciating the intimacy that Rouch and Morin were able to elicit. Mary Lou explains that, “in order to get a sparkle of truth, the character has to be alone and on the verge of breaking down, he has to talk about a very intimate matter” (Chronicle of a Summer).

Morin explains this concept at the end of the film, explaining, “We wanted to get away from theater, from spectacle, to enter into direct contact with life.

  • Organizational Culture Observation Report

    The next time I walk-in into any store I would surely observe more than I ever have until now. The reason simply being that in the last couple of days I have learnt so much about organisational culture and its different aspects that I can no longer look at any organisation the way I used to look at it before. Earlier, whenever I used to visit a store, it never occurred to me that everything that I could possibly see in that store was meant to be the way it is for a reason. I was unaware of the…
