Hello everyone ! Today I’m here to talk about a film which have touch me ! It’s The Bucket list, an american film product by Bod Reiner in 2007.
This film is about the story of two men who are very ill, the doctor says to each one that the disease will kill them in few months. Carter Chambers, who is played by Morgan Freeman, and Edward Cole, played by jack Nicholson, are together in a same hospital room so they begin to talk, and one day Edward C. asks Carter C. about the paper he read everytime, it’s his bucket list where he written everything he wants to do before die and he is a bit sad because he thinks he will never do all he wants… So Edward decides that’s immportant and he helps Carter to realize all dreams he had on his list . The family is ok with this project, they want that Carter realise all he wants before die even if they would prefer that he spends this time with them. They still really worry about the health of Carter ! Warning spoiler ! At the end it stays just one dream on the list but Carter can’t realize it because people say to him he is too old and too weak to do that : climb Everest ! So Carter die and had never realize his dream alive, Edward die few month later. In fact it’s the end which have really touch me : at the end we see a climber who climb the Everest and when he arrive on the top he put a funeral urn next to an other and we understand that it’s the ash of the two men !
This end is very important because it’s like it says : « Never give up, all your dreams can be realize and if it’s not in this life it will be in an other ! » . it’s really an hopeful message and Carter is a model for everyone for his tenacity. This film helps everybody to remember that life is, unfortunatly, unfair and can be stop sudently so every moment is the best moment to realize our dream !
It’s not unbiased but I think it’s really a film to see !
