今日はバレンタイン!パートナーと映画をまた違った目線で見てみると面白いかも
Today is Valentine’s Day!
So why not watch a movie together with your partner, but from a little bit different perspective than usual?

Big Fish
ティム・バートン

死期が近づく父エドワードの看病のために里帰りするウィル

幼い頃から父の若き日の冒険のホラ話を聞かせてくれていたのだが、
ウィルはうんざりして本当の話を聞きたいとせがむ。

大切な人を喜ばせるためのホラ話を
ウィルが本当の意味で理解した時、
思い込みだったり、
凝り固まった考え方を
フラットにしてくれて心がほぐれていくかんじがした。

ビッグフィッシュは受け継がれて永遠に生きていく。

 エドワードのホラ話は
毎日を楽しく過ごすためのエッセンスだと思う。
“父と息子”の物語であるけれど、
相手を喜ばせ、笑わせるような思いやりのある映画だ。

エドワード夫婦は理想的

略奪愛から始まった二人の愛は
戦争があり仕事や、エドワード自身の人の良さで
なかなか会えない時間が多かったけれど

喜びや辛さを共有し支え合っていることが
あのバスタブのシーンでよくわかる、
愛し合っているのだと

Big Fish
Tim Burton

Returning home to take care of his dying father Edward is young Will.

Since his childhood he had heard stories from his father’s youth,
fish stories of adventures,
but this time Will just wanted to hear the truth.

A horror story told to please the people one holds dear,
To later realize the truth that lies behind it,
All that he had believed,
His stubborn ideas,
Where all smashed into pieces,
Just as what he felt happen to his heart.

Big Fish legacy will continue to live on forever.

I believe that Edward’s stories of horror
Shows the essence of what is needed to enjoy your every day.
It might be a story about “a father and a son”,
But it is also a movie filled with the hopes of making someone laugh and be happy.

Edward and his wife were the ideal couple,

Their love for each other which started by a common love for plundering,
Went through times of war and hard work,
Which together with Edward’s own personality,
Gave them almost no time together,

But sharing both their joy and supporting each other through difficulting,
That one scene with the bathtub makes it very clear,
That they love each other.
