Pictures from Big Fish / Columbia 2004 / Directed by Tim Burton
The storyline in this movie is a pretty simple one:
A son trying to learn more about his dying father by
reliving stories and myths his father told him about himself.
But in this simple story there is hidden great truth.
It tells us that true love is worth fighting for.
It tells us about the power of imagination.
It tells us about the value of letting your love stay true to themselves and how you should not strive to change them.
It tells us how we should not judge people even if we cannot always understand them and even if their ways are not the same as our own.
It tells us about the value of family.
It tells us that death does not always have to be ugly.
And it tells us that we should stay true to your dreams.
At least that is what it told me...
And if none of that impress you - there is always Marion Cotillard!
