Modern cinema needs such movies. Necessary. An hour and a half you don’t just watch think, analyze, worry. I do not want to miss a single moment of plot twist. And after a couple of days now, devastated. Something to think about. How.
The film is about life. The film is about choice. The film is about the meaning of existence, if you will.
The plot revolves around a small but insanely gifted girl genius who loves math. It just so happens that brings her uncle. But it seems that Mary is quite satisfied, and she’s completely happy. And she has a friend that is 30-40-50 years older than her. It doesn’t matter. Age is just a number. The important thing is that Mary with her. They sing songs together, dance, play. But one day it all broke apart on the mathematical abilities of the child learns grandma. And her granddaughter absolutely other plans. Whether these plans with the desire of the girls? And is it important? With these abilities, it simply has to be a brilliant scientist.
Yes, the film is about choice. What we mean by “successful person”? What does it mean to “be successful”? Earn a lot of money? Become world famous? To build a career? Maybe, “become successful” is the ability to be spiritually rich? For example, to stand up for the man if he was unjustly wronged? Even contrary to the generally accepted rules. Maybe “be successful” is to be able to be honest with ourselves and, most importantly, with others, and not be afraid that this honesty you could get hurt? Everyone decides for himself. But nothing is more unbearable, when no such choice. When you have no choice, no freedom can occur the worst. The clash of two ideologies, a collision of material and spiritual here, in my opinion, the main idea of this story.
The Dalai Lama said:
“The planet does not need more ‘successful people’. The planet desperately needs more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers and lovers of all kinds. It needs people with whom to live well. The planet needs people with morals and love that will make the world lively and humane. And these qualities have little to do with “success”, as defined in our society.”
A smart film. Crazy tube-like, warm, but a little sad
