If a child comes from criminal environment, it is likely to become a criminal. On the other hand, child who comes from long line of judges can be persuaded to study law. In these cases, the child might feel it natural to follow in his family’s footsteps.Some crimes can be explained by backround. For example racing in stolen car may be caused by hopelessness of a jobless life in a city, but for example bank frauds (trick, cheating) which ruin thousands are commited by rich men.Other reason may be excitement.
Some people get their adrenaline by sport, perhaps others get it from crime. The moment of excitementis the following years in prison worth for them. Some villains have to be lead by unreasonable optimism. The true villain never thinks he’s going to be caught. The future doesn’t exist for them.·Do you think a villain can be a likeable person?·Who is your favourite movie villain and why?Book: „The Third Man“- Graham GreeneMain Characters: Rollo Martins- author of western novels; Harry Lime- ex-schoolfriend, idol and racketeer (with cheap peniciline); Colonel Calloway- English police officer and narrator; Anna Schmidt- Hungarian actress and Lime’s girlfriend (Martins falls in love with her); Herr Koch- Lime’s caretaker and witness; Kurtz, Dr.Winkler, Cooler- Lime’s friendsPlot: Rollo Martins comes to Vienna after 2.WW (4 parts:US, Fr, GB, Rus) to visit old friend Harry Lime.
