It is time for our Wednesday movie review with Andres Clemente, today it is …. Hacksaw Ridge Directed by Mel Gibson. Starring Andrew Garfield, Vince Vaughn and Sam Worthington. Tells the story of WWII American Army Medic who during the battle of Okinawa and won the Medal of Honor without ever carrying a weapon or killing a single human being. Great performance by Andrew Garfield. As usual, by Mel Gibson, very gory. He wanted to show a very believable battle field. Great paceing, the movie never slows down and the story is told effectively. The other characters are really supporting characters, dont know much about their back story. Important and surprising turn by Hugo Weaving who plays Desmond’s father. Its pivotal for his son story.
In the last hour we are joined by the French Ambassador to the Republic of Panama, Sn Philippe Casenave. We are coming up to “Good France” a day of fusion between French and Panamanian cuisine. Restaurants around Panama will be celebrating with a special menu which will be presented on the 21st of March in their restaurants.
