I am back. How are you guys doing?
I´ve got another movie tip for you. This one came out last year, 2010, and it has a great lesson of life.
It´s called the CHOSEN ONE – translated, for marketing purposes as usual, as O CÉU NÃO PODE ESPERAR .
It combines elements of comedy and drama simultaneously, making it a very original movie. I loved it.
THE CHOSEN ONE is starrred, and directed by the same artist: Rob Schneider (well remembered as one of Adam´s Sandler´s partners on the TV show Saturday night live in New York – great success in the 80s, also by his participation in the movie Big Daddy)
and it´s a low-cost production in which Rob was able to come up with a fine state-of-the-art motion Picture blending Colombian and American cultures, as the story links both through its characters.
This movie wll definitely enrich your life through the philosophical messages subtly imbued of a character who, at the beginning, has to endure the deep pain of being dumped, but turns his life around and becomes a sort of hero who saves an endangered civilization.
It´s a nice story of spiritual and psychological growth which makes him an extraordinary person at the end and may invite you to think over your own life and values.
Furthermore, it teaches us that as long as we keep any sort of negative emotions inside us
and don´t ever let go of them by initially forgiving ourselves, we´re literally trapped and unable to live our lives to its fullest, as it hinders us to experience what we came her for, which, according to the message, is developing our faith in God and in ourselves.
The underlying message is as follows.
I believe many of us have, at some point in life, lose our motivation or lack encouragement after being a victim of some unexpected event or misfortune that come our way, sometimes, out of the blue.
This can bring, as a result, a feeling of guilt or unforgiveness to ourselves, which may sabotage us in different areas, consequentely, paralyzing or limiting our actions despite our best efforts to succeed – as it is a subconscious mechanism to bring us down to where we used to be, it goes, most of the times, unnoticed and unexplained or hard to be understood. However, it is Paramount to learn what it is and cope with it so that you can actually become a happy and a well-resolved person.
That´s my perspective and if you want to have your own, just watch the movie. Besides being a great learning experience, you will have lots of fun with Rob´s and the casting´s performance, which is simply great and hilarious.
