Breathe - film

I drove to Palace Cinema in Balwyn this morning. Weather forecast was not good, so, it’s a perfect day to go watch a film in this beautiful place. 

Well, one cannot help but feel very touched emotionally when watching a real story like this one, brilliantly acted by not only main characters but also nearly everyone. 

Putting aside British upper class privileges and its unashamed legacy of colonialism, the film at its core offers us an opportunity to reflect on what it means to live a life fully. 

Comparison to another film ‘Theory of Everything’ is inevitable. But, This is not what I was thinking. I was thinking of the man in ‘The Diving Bell and The Butterfly’. It’s a French film I saw a long time ago. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it. 

Another thing I was thinking was Henrietta Lacks. Without her, there wouldn’t have been Polio vaccines. 
It’s very fascinating to see how each life ended up intertwined.
