About the film “À voix haute-la force de la parole” (“Speak up”):

Each year at the University of Saint-Denis, Paris, the competition for the Best Orator  takes place. The students of this university studying any course decide to participate and prepare with help from professionals (lawyers, directors of theatrical productions), who teach them the difficult exercise of speaking in public. The students  learn the subtle inner workings of rhetoric and learn to assert themselves, reveal themselves to others, but also to themselves.
Leïla, Elhadj, Eddy, and the others confront each other and try to win this competition to be the Best Orator.

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And seven years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
