Many feel that the age of print has been usurped by visual media. Where then could be found a more appealing and revealing vehicle for teaching language and culture than the cinema, and especially remakes of films from one culture to the other. This discussion will explore cultural differences in terms of taboos regarding sex, death, and the body, by examining Paradise (1991), the American remake of the French film Le Grand Chemin (1987).
