Sometimes I feel like leaving home and running away, to the world. There is so much to do in live rather than staying home, studying, working, and earning money. There are so many people whom I have to meet, so many places I have to see, so much of food I have to eat and so much of the world that waits for me. There is always a part of me that sits in its place dreaming of what it would be like in Andaman at this time of the year and what it would be like in Africa with all the Elephants, Lions and Cheetahs. This part of me has always been there and has always wanted to go and explore the world, like an adventurer, like a kid. This movie has the ability to help you see yourself too, the real self and give you strength enough to leave one fine and normal morning wishing everyone “Good Morning”.

“And in case I don’t see you Good Afternoon, Good Evening and Good Night”.

Pickpocket is a 1959 french film, directed by Robert Bresson. The movie revolves around a petty thief, Michel who lives on the money he earns by stealing peoples wallets. Michel teams up with a couple of pickpockets like him and manages well enough, though the police is always on the lookout for him and suspects him. He does get caught and is later released after which he travels around a bit before returning to his home where he finally admits his longing for Jeanne who has been beside him for the entire time and has supported him throughout.

The film has very few¬†dialogues¬†and is more in of a narrative of what Michel writes in his diary. It also has an interesting turn of events which lead to Michel and Jeanne coming together who would have never met if Michel hadn’t been a pickpocket.

Good Will Hunting is a very deep and meaningful piece of work. The movie gives an interesting understanding on relationships, between people from different ages, between people with different backgrounds and different characters. The movie also highlights the issue of failure being looked down upon and dreams being very money oriented. Robin Williams has played a very interesting role where he asks the boy to do what he wants to do and not blindly follow the others. The boys friend also plays a very important role in making him understand how he would want things to be.

Later i also learnt that the story was written by Matt Damon himself who also acted as the boy in the movie. I think he came up with a very interesting story and has done justice to the it.

A walk to remember is a sweet movie, and a nice one time watch. Though some might say that the movie is too peachy and mushy, i think think its worth a watch. If you sink into the character’s which is what i usually do, you will realize that it is also about friendship and standing up for the right and having enough courage to challenge the wrong even if they look stronger than you do. They say that you lose everything if you be a “walk out” but only the “walks out’s” know what they have gained at the end of it. The movie also talks about how love is limitless and has no boundaries. To quote a few words from the movie that really touched me; “Our love is like the wind, i can’t see it……but i can feel it”.
