the ant and the grasshopper
30 April 2009 | by (belgium) – See all my reviews

what a beautiful picture, what a great puzzle of poetry. there are many things that can be said about 'Sadgati'.

first of all, men try to succeed but fail in doing so, while women accomplish everything they want to do. women are happy, but become sad because of men. does this mean women do things better than men? this thought is shown with the use of insects: every time a woman does something in the film, we see grand things, like a big pile of mud and an expensive house. every time a man tries something in the film, he is put in the picture with insects close to the work he tries to do. does this mean men are insects? the dust can be Representative for the awareness of the women, who know something bad is going to happen. the big house of the 'bad' woman is full of richness and luxury. does this mean money kills emotion? could be, because the owners of the big house sleep in separate beds. so there's no mention of love in money? money is bad? but if money is bad, why do the poor men die? is poverty a richness? could be, because the real problems are left for the rich men, who will now have to explain why everything went wrong. however, the last image of the film shows us the real 'bad guy': the work itself. there will always be poor people and rich people because of the differences of work. that's not fair. because of that, accidents do happen as in the end of the film. if they should accept each other for who they are and without profits from work, everything would be fine.

with the difference of work, changes in character are important to the story too. the ant works hard and the grasshopper does nothing. it would be great if the ant and the grasshopper would be the same.

because that's the meaning of the picture: acceptance of who we are, knowledge of each others differences and the love of understanding.
