Remember me

Hello everybody,

Today, i’m going to talk about an american film wich is entitled « Remember me ».

I found the script very affecting, indeed the story  presents a young man who is named Tyler plays by Robert Pattinson,  he is 22 years old he rebels against his family and the society after his mother dying. During a party he fought against a policeman and he goes in custody so his father who is lawyer payed for his release.. By strategy he starts to hit on the policeman’s daughter : Ally a young woman who is very sensible. Tyler falls madly in love with her.

In this film there are lot of reference to Voltaire and a reflection around the human in society, we can see that Tyler is a morose boy and he always lives in sadness. Despite at the heart of the film with find the relationship inside a family. Tyler has conflicting relationship with his father and we can see that he suffers of that and he’d give anything for his little sister who trys to help him everyday to move forward. There are also good and funny moments that I adored particulary when Tyler is with his roommate !

I tought the character of Tyler and the story very charming.. I could had others importants details but I prefer you go see the film to know the dramatic end 😉

I recommand you so much.. Really !

See you soon !

Waiting for Godot

Waiting for Godot is an absurdist play written by Samuel Beckett. The first representation was in 1953 in Paris. This play is qualifies like a tragicomedy in two acts. The original french text was composed in 1949, and it was translate few times later. It’s the Nonsense genre.

In this play there are four charaters. Two main characters are Estragon and Vladimir and during all the play they are waiting for Godot, Meanwhile they meet Pozzo and his slave Lucky, these two characters are very strange. Pozzo is very tirannic, indeed he is very cruel with Lucky, we talk about a deshumanization of Lucky.

The play has no sense because characters are waiting for Godot but public knows that he will never coming and sometimes it’s very funny for example when Estragon and Vladimir do same movements or when Pozzo asks to Lucky if he can think, it’s a screed very funny.

But we feel also sorrow for them because they waiting someone who will never come.. It’s why we can sa that it’s a tragicomedy.

Personnally, I loved this play, it makes me smile and sometimes laugh
