Hi my readers,
I am actually trying to have 02 posts/week. And I’ve made up my mind it would be one on Wed and the rest one on Sat.
Today I actually want to have a brief review on the movie I’ve just recently watched: Life is beautiful (Italian, 1997).
Life is really beautiful, indeed. Even when the worst things happen. It’s all about how you decide your own path: being a positive man or being a negative man.
In the movie, the man character (Guido) totally can have numerous of opportunities to get depressed and frightened like everyone do in the concentration camp. In fact, he doesn’t. Since he knows that he must protect his son from any of that negative emotions and he even turned the fear of death into an exciting game.
There is no doubt that he is such a devoted Dad who would sacrifice himself for the life of his little boy. But regarding the aspect of being a human, there is also no doubt that he is such a wonderfully positive person. You guys would know that, for so many times, being positive to just ourselves is already such a terrible hardness, not to mention about Guido’s terrible situation: poor accommodation, arbitrary execution, starvation, cruelty… . But Guido has been positive to himself, maybe partly and totally a great optimist to his little son, Joshua, Guido has played a perfect game with his son and still can hold the game (or his son’s positiveness) until the very last minutes before his predictable death (I wish the ending is not as what it is, Guido really deserves a happy life ever after for being such a great man), and of course, he totally makes his best to have a full protection on his beloved son till his end.
And for those who haven’t watched the movie, do you know how this Dad’s positiveness has led his son to? To a perfectly amazing land fulfilled with the toys that the little boy dreams for (in the movie its a real tank) and therefore, to prepare for being rewarded, the little boy himself has to live positively, do all his best and move himself forward.
How marvelous and amazing the Dad is!
To me, positiveness, or negativeness is just a choice. And it’s so sure, positiveness will lead you to everywhere you’ve dreamed of, at least in your soul.
