My favorite movie: “The Notebook”
Movies give you inspiration to do or change many things in Life. This is a huge benefit on watching movies because they often give you something to learn from, you can see probably how a bad decision can change you life forever, how people influence can sometimes be bad for you, how everyone is capable of good thing in life, how by working hard you can achieve you goals, etc. So, trough movies you can get motivated and look forward in your life by maybe changing some points of views you had before about a specific thing.
There are many types of movies, such as: horror movies, action movies, fiction movies, and many others. Everyone is different somehow and no every people like the same kind of movie because it depends on the personality and likes of each individual. I love watching movies, and I like almost every kind of movie but personally I really enjoy romantic movies, which is one of the genres I like the most.
Indeed, from all the movies I have watched, one of my favorites is “The Notebook”, which has a little bit of comedy, some drama, but mostly romance. The notebook is told in two times, past, when a guy called Noah whose economic situation wasn’t pretty good, met a young wealthy girl who was in vacations in a town, they both fall in love, and passed by many happy but also difficult moments. On the other hand, it is the present day, when Noah is using the notebook to tell Allie the story of how they met and everything, by that way try to helped her to remember at least a little bit, which was enough for him, because she had Alzheimer.
I have seen this movie 5 times or more and I am not tired of it at all and one of the phrases in the movie that I always remember is this, “They didn’t agree on much. In fact, they didn’t agree on anything. They fought all the time and challenged each other ever day. But despite their differences, they had one important thing in common. They were crazy about each other.” Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook. This movie has an interest dialogue, has many phrases written as poetry and as the narrator says in the movie, “Poetry, she thought, wasn’t written to be analyzed; it was meant to inspire without reason, to touch without understanding.” Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook. So, this phrase demonstrates that poetry is a beautiful way to obtain the necessary inspiration to do or complete things in life. One of the things why I like this movie is because it tells you two parallel stories, at the same time, which is kind of interesting, even though at first, for me was a little bit tricky to understand what was going on in the movie, because you have two histories about the same people but one is telling you the past and the other is the present. At the end of the movie both histories get into only one. Moreover, a lot of the times the end of a movie is not what you expected; but particularly, I loved the final of The Notebook because it represents true love as one of the most powerful things in life by Noah And Allie dying together despite all of the thing they had to overcome, and all the obstacles they had to confront, such as, Allie’s parents, Allie’s fiance, Allie’s disease, distance (which I think is one of the biggest things that makes love die), and some others, their love triumph over anything else. Also, this movie shows you that you will have many obstacles in life; however, any obstacle can stop you from following your dreams. “So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s going to be really hard; we’re gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday.
You and me… everyday.” Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook. So, by this phrase we can see how Noah wanted Allie so bad, and he did everything he could to be with her; with courage, passion, strength, love, he followed his dream of being the owner of the house he always had wanted, he worked hard with the little things he had because of its economic situation, without his love, but with the motivation of knowing that it could have been the only way to be with Allie, and it was; after all Allie came back to Noah. Finally, this movie taught me that nothing is impossible in life if you really want it and you can obtain anything if you work for it.
A lot of movies like The Notebook teach us that not everything is easy in life; you will pass by hard moments at least once in your life when you will need strength, patience and inspiration to overcome those moments. This movie shows you that things only happen once and if you don’t do what you want in that moment you will probably regret it all your life and maybe lose what you really wanted. Love, love is a word that we should always have in mind, because it is the answer of many of our questions in many opportunities, you have to know what you want and love it so that it will be your passion in life. For me, love is a synonym for the word happiness, and I am not only talking about love as romance, I am talking about LOVE as a whole, love for your job, love for yourself… In general, love your life and you will be happy. The Notebook is one of those movies I will never forget.
