I wanted to do a brief review on this film because it is one of my all time favourite movies. Even though it has been around for a while now I still recommend it to anyone who has not yet seen it.
It is heart warming, adventurous and cinematically beautiful. It teaches a lesson about living life and just taking the jump. It tells you not to live life dreaming but to go for those dreams. It shows you how beautiful the world can be and it inspires in many different ways.
It is the story of Walter, a constant daydreamer of amazing adventures so unlike his day to day life. As a long time employee of Life magazine, redundancy threatens due to modernisation of the magazine. Without spoiling too much lets just say that his daydreams become a reality he did not expect and lead you on a incredible journey.
Not only are the landscapes beautiful but the soundtrack is a perfect fit. I often listen to it on repeat because the choice of music is simply beautiful and I love the reminder it gives me when I do listen to it.
As with everything not everyone will love this story as much as I do but then if we all liked the same things the world would not be the amazing and unique place that it is.
“To see the world, things dangerous to come, to see behind walls, draw closer to find each other and to feel. That is the purpose of Life”
