coda Follows the same general plot line la famille belliero, The film makes it clear that Ruby’s family is heavily dependent on her, and she works long hours at sea before leaving for school. Exhausted, she falls asleep at her desk during her history class, just as Paula fell asleep during her Spanish class.

The profession of her parents and the fact that they are deaf make her the butt of jokes of her classmates. Frank and Jackie’s sex life is also very active – and the doctor’s scene la famille belliero Repeated in CODA. But this time, when Miles is rehearsing his duet with Ruby, it’s the loud sex they have, which causes him to be publicly embarrassed in the school cafeteria the next day because Miles has been involved in this ‘fun’ incident. Mentioned it to a friend, who then leaked it to his own girlfriend.

Later in the film, a TV crew arrives to interview Frank and Jackie as they are starting a fishing cooperative, and Ruby, who is to be their interpreter, is late for her singing lessons. , and his music teacher forbade him to go in. Her house.

Said music teacher, Mr. V, played by Eugenio Derbez, just like his counterpart la famille belliero, unhappy about being trapped in a high school setting. To assess the voice range of his students, he sings them happy B-Day , the star Spangled Banner Might have been a bit of a challenge for them! His selection of songs for the school choir are staples of Motown and the 1970s. You’re All I Need to Get By, originally performed by Marvin Gaye and Tammy Terrell, is a duet that Ruby performs with Miles in school vocals.

Her audition song for Berklee College of Music is Joni Mitchell’s Both Sides Now—a song whose lyrics are poignant and suggest that love involves some give and take, but doesn’t quite relate to Michelle Sardo’s story. je volley,

The only reference to any American singer so far in the film is about Bob Dylan, whose voice Mr V says is like “sand and glue”, with “beautiful voices that have nothing to say.”

Leo, Ruby’s brother in coda, is a young adult, while Quentin, Paula’s brother, was a sex-crazed teen. Yes, Leo has sex with Ruby’s friend Gertie in the restroom of the bar where she works, and she becomes his girlfriend. But he is a mature young man who is more involved in his parents’ fishing business than Quentin is in his parents’ dairy farm.

In fact, he is the one who is eager to open up his family to the community at large. It is clear that the family’s finances are facing a fee they must pay to the licensing authorities and are duped by middlemen who buy and sell their daily holdings.

Leo comes up with the idea of ​​starting a fishing cooperative with other local fishermen—who previously ridiculed him, an incident that led to a bar dispute. He also wants Ruby to pursue her singing career, no matter how much the family depends on her—even though her father was fined because they were at sea with no one hearing, and the Coast Guard. Kay could not hear the sirens, who had been alerted to this fact by an inspector who was on his fishing boat.

CODA and La Famille Belliero

coda Adds an amazing view – which has no exact equivalent la famille belliero – Between Ruby and her mother, in which Jackie tells her daughter how unhappy she was when she realized she could hear and that she always feared she would be a bad mother to him. This scene opens a window into the dilemma of deaf parents with CODA children.

The conclusions of both films follow parallel lines: in the choir, Rodolphe and Gigi in. la famille bellieroand frank and jackie in codaFeel how mesmerized the audience is with his daughter’s performance. In both films, the soundtrack is silenced so that we can experience the singing as a deaf person (some critics considered it a “cheap” device.)

And Frank even asks Ruby to sing his song for him and, as Rodolph did la famille belliero, he puts his hand on her throat to “feel” it. This prompts the family to move to Boston the next morning so that Ruby can audition at Berklee, and Mr. V arrives in time to accompany her on the piano. Ruby also starts signing her song lyrics for her parents who are in the theatre.

It’s clear he made it to Berklee; This time, it’s not the music teacher, but Gertie, his girlfriend who takes him to Boston, and—as in la famille bellieroShe gets out of the car to finalize her family, and her father tells her to “go”.

one final difference between la famille belliero And coda How the relationship between Miles and Ruby develops. In the French film, there is a little romantic tension between Paula and Gabriel, but nothing really comes to fruition. We can infer from one of the photos shown as credits that they became a couple after Paula moved to Paris.

In coda, when Miles apologizes to Ruby and tells her that he is jealous of her having such loving parents, they spend time in a pond surrounded by high cliffs of a mine, where they jump into the water – Finally before the kiss. A scene like this is a romantic cliché (sexual tension in a pool setting) for which we can probably forgive Sean Heder.

which is a better film; la famille belliero either coda,

In its conclusion, coda It also clarifies that Ruby’s family is now fully connected, and has been accepted by the fishing community. The fishing cooperative is a success, Jackie is now cozying up with other women while packing fish, and Frank and Leo are having a great time at the local bar with other fishermen. in this regard, coda Better contributes to opening up a dialogue between the deaf community and the hearing world, giving us the realization that deaf people are like everyone else – except they cannot hear – and can be included in all aspects of human life is and should be.

My final assessment is that, although I loved la famille belier very much, i have to admit that coda handles the same theme in what I would consider a more mature and successful way than the original French film on which it is based. As such, it deserved to win the Academy Award for Best Picture, just as Troy Kotsur deserved an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.
