Today, I’m going to talk about Donnie Darko. I’ve seen this film with my friends a few weeks ago, and I’ve loved it.
It's a particular story which is a little bit hard to understand because we are trapped between two worlds which are themselves trapped between two time spaces.
We can follow the life of Donnie Darko, a teenager, who has mental disorders. This movie deal with different subjects like love, sacrifice, time travel and existentialism. October the 2nd, a reactor of a plane crashed on Donnie's house. Thankfully for him, he followed a voice in his head who obliged him to leave his house, so he slept in a square. The next day, he learns what happened by seeing cops in front of his house.
After this event, a lot of things will happen to him. The voice he heard is Frank's voice, a big scary rabbit who his a Donnie's imaginary friend, and he told him that the World's end is for 28days, 6hours, 42minutes and 12seconds.
Donnie will obey to Frank during those days, and he will make bad things like flood his high school, burn a motivational coach's house while his girlfriend was sleeping at the cinema where they went together. 27 days after the World's end prediction, after an other hallucination, Donnie, his friends and his girlfriend go to Grande-Synthe house but things turn wrong : his girlfriend dies. The killer is Frank, his sisters's boyfriend, he wears the rabbit costume, so Donnie shoot him at the right eye. The World's end day has come, and Donnie sees a storm from which his mother and sister's airplane appears. This plane is the same we can see at the beginning of the movie, so he lose his reactor as the first plane, but this time, Donnie is in his bed and die.
It's really hard to explain the story because there is a lot of details which can make us understand that we are between two time spaces, I really recommend this movie which is one of my favorites.
