...some deep feelings lurks inside all of us, as most of the people don't show what they feel, covet, love and wish.
Inner motivation and passion - that is the core of this film and although it is very non-orthodox and also gloomy /well, 3-4 scary scenes/ it is worth watching. Really impressing. It has a thrill. Like you are watching the dark side of the moon /underworld /or rather deep inside yourself/.
Alain Dellon's performance is unusual and charming, and the DEATH herself is very strong character. There is a small boy, so powerless, compared with the dark deadly figure, and the father's love is so hopeless. Each personality in the movie has some inner strength/weakness. The Grim reaper snatches Alain Delon. ( Gosh, I was dismayed that in 1986 they could invent something like BigBrother show ?!?). The Death controls and manipulates the whole world...all the people...uses computers ...scary! But what happens when these two personalities collide? Who wants what, who can sacrifice more? May be the HUMAN has the power and the strength, may be it is deep inside YOU too?
It is an old movie, not the best dialogue, a story about father-and-son love-and-despair and the plot is a little scary, but, we are all growing wiser by experience, aren't we? And...tell me, are we growing more compassionate and better people?
If you see, and follow through, you will remember this movie.
