A Light in the Dark (Reflection on the movie LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL)
Our lives became meaningful because of those people who love us and support us all throughout. “Life is Beautiful” is a striking movie. In here, a lot of sacrifices are made. An effort of a man to win the girl that he truly loves was recognizable, a lady who turned her back from her mother just to follow her true happiness, and the endeavor of a couple just to make their son happy and safe.
Throughout the movie, the characters were bound not to be free. There are those people who oppress them. That’s a fact of life that is hard to breakout from but we have choices- to stand up and fight or just let them do the thing. Because of this, there’s a great possibility for people to feel absurd but then they chose not to. For example, though Guido is distance away from Dora, he still finds ways to express his feelings to the woman he loves. Another is, when their son get involved, Guido as a father, never lets his son feel afraid and hurt. He covered all the pains that he is suffering for the sake of his son- the same as what God did for us. Thus, love can conquer all the agonies and torments.
Death is nothingness but then, in some ways it can also be beneficial. There are times in which we see the value of a person when they’re already gone and by this, the memory of that person will remain and be cherished by the people who love him until the time they meet again. Death from nothingness can be turned into something. Everything depends on your will.
