The Faulty Broken Fountain

There are three movies that I was watching lately, and bring a certain sad story into discussion. Each of these three movies is unique in its own way. Usually I would not recommend a sad story, an awful story to any of my friends. At least until one of them, one of my friends, is gone; gone for good… I don’t know where, but this is another discussion, a discussion for another kind of blog. In order to fulfill the tragedy, the striking part is that two of these movies were recommended by that friend. May she rest in peace! May the Angels and Archangels take care of your innocent soul, D.!

Together we will live forever!


The very first movie from this short list is Darren Aronofsky‘s The Fountain. This one was the first I saw, and it will remain on top of my preferences, no matter the IMDB or RottenTomatoes scores. It is actually an underrated movie. Love story, will, strength and determination, kindness, history, science and fiction are its keywords.

Death is a disease!


Clint Mansell‘s music is definitely something to remember and keep on listening to!

 

In order to be able to watch The Fault in Our Stars, I was compelled to start watch it for three times… It looks like a young generation kind of story, but it touches anyone’s heart, regardless her or his age.

 

The third movie on this short list is The Broken Circle Breakdown. At first I thought that it is an American movie with some Dutch speaking characters, but I was wrong. This definitely is not some sort of a Hollywood movie, so it has some interesting elements within its structure.

 

You will find a star in each and every one of these three movies!

In The Fountain, The Mayans chose Xibalba, a dying star, to represent their Underworld.

You’ll find another star right in the title of The Fault in Our Stars.

In The Broken Circle Breakdown, Alabama’s husband believes that there’s no chance for a passed away body to become a star, and this triggers many questions about religion and science, about soul and body, about heaven and earth…

There’s a star in your heart, or there’s a star up above, but there’s a star somewhere!

A Man Who Was Superman

Strength doesn’t open iron doors, but a small key.

You are not weak.

Everyone has the power to help others.

Help them until they realize.

No matter what you do, the world won’t change.

A man who spent many difficult years alone has now returned to our side.

We wish him all the best.

 The past can’t be changed, but the future’s different: it can be changed.

Don’t lose courage. The future’s in your hands.

Strength doesn’t open iron doors, but a small key.

We all have the key inside us to open the door to a new future.

The Korean movie “A Man Who Was Superman” starts like a comedy and ends like a drama. All the above quotes belong (you already guessed) to this movie.
