motion picture moment


Just because I haven't posted the movies that have been viewed doesn't mean they weren't watched. Someone like me, who is a Cinephilia will always be watching one, one way or the other. Because I for sure love to watch movies. More importantly I would like to start talking about them as well. But as explained before I am not that well written and can not find the time to dedicate my opinion on the matter.

I must however talk about the photo above, taken from the internet under creative commons, is a screen shot of an amazing movie called Wild hearts can't be broken. The first time I saw this movie was at 17 years old. Briefly let me tell you of it's impact...

I saw it at someones house...

There was not one soul I knew in this house. The reason I was there was because of a person who I had just met was going there. As I walked up the driveway I recognized a long haired girl who worked at a kiosk in the mall. She too found me familiar but not knowing who I was either she still greeted me with a hug so tight it was as if she had known me for years. She continued to twirl and smile in the driveway as I was ushered inside. The day wore on. What I did before, during and after the next paragraph is lost to my youth. A crowd of a dozen, if not more freshly reassured hippies staked out their spots in the living room, whether it on the couch, floor or one another's lap. Shades were drawn, blankets tacked up tight to curtainless windows and steamed tea set down for all. Then it started, this movie began to play. And now all I can recall from that day was sitting against the wall watching a girl dive off a board on a horse. Not knowing the name of the movie what so ever I would think of it from time to time and the friendship I saw scattered around me that day. The calm sense of a relaxed crowd gathering, cooking, dancing and being well.

It took almost 20 years to have that movie present itself to me. Once I finally saw it the reason it drew a crowd of well loved people became very clear to me. It is a movie filled with compassion, drive, great historical sets and scenes but mostly it resonates faith in ones self. That being the most important lesson of all. Loving yourself, knowing who you are fearlessness and free of stress, even under the most difficult of situations.

If you have the chance to see it, take it...

animal lovers and advocates of animal rights (my best friend is leader of a well known animal rights org) understand I believe these animals were well loved in this film.
