We are pleased to bring to you a most lovely movie offering from Sweden, the Ox (also called "Oxen"). This is in Divx format 640 X 480 and has a beautiful picture and nice audio too.
We do not have subtitles in other languages nor do we have separate files for subtitles and other files etc. This is a single Divx file that has English subtitles embedded however they will show on any DivX compatible disc player while results may vary using computer desktop software as we do not vouch for the appearance of subtitles on that platform. So if you require English subtitles to view this lovely movie (and who wouldn't, outside of Sweden!) please place the file onto a disc and use on your DivX disc player. It is DivX 6+ standard so anyone should be great with it.
The lesson of this movie is to keep in mind the preachings that have parallel in the great writings of the learned Mr. John Stuart Mill of England. He argues that when we impose sanctions, we must be humane in our limits or we abandon altogether what it is that is fundamentally at stake - the best possible human existence.
For this reason, we don't shoot people for "parking offenses" although it might just work to prevent casually parking your can in a spot where its forbidden in fact. On the other hand, if we did have such draconian penalties in place, the results would be insane over time certainly. Witness the harsh treatment of those sent off to Australia in similar circumstances as are depicted in this movie.
Where poverty exists or where religious fundamentalism is at play, the risks of being unreasonable in what we inflict on gaining compliance with a code of morality in complete negation or rejection of human understanding (this has been a worldwide phenomenon at various times throughout history and remains so in much of the world still today, in fact) remain rampant. This movie has great insights brought to you by the writer and director. Its based on a true story, we are told.
I saw this movie at a special theater facility in Canada where only the best of foreign movies and artistic achievements get an airing. its not a movie to be missed from your library if you love especially the people of Europe as much as I do, as this is their story set in a part of Sweden in this particular case.
Please enjoy and help with seeding for others too!
