my thinking
14 October 2004 | by (a small Island) – See all my reviews

This movie delivered some thought provoking messages to me. Foremost was "How to maintain a long term marriage relationship," Secondly, "That religion is, or should be, important for the human race," And last, but not least, "How can we prevent our environment from suffering the ravages of air and water pollution"? And, upon Mike&furby reflection, we think sometimes that a change of venue might help us change our otherwise dull and unhappy lives. Perhaps a visit to different places and people might encourage our thoughts and efforts toward the messages delivered by the movie. I have directed my personal dislike toward that husband who constantly treats Karen like a servant or baby toy. He apparently grows quickly tired and weary of her constant presence around him. It would appear that the marriage has long lost its magic for this man. I have assumed that this man has a greater IQ than his wife. If indeed he has the greater IQ then one wonders why he does not infuse the marriage with interesting and diversified moments of enjoyment and stimulating events. Surely his wife would respond in kind to such moments of tenderness, caring, and affection.

Another actor named Harry has been alone for many years since his wife died of a psychotic disease. Apparently, Harry wants to live in the past recalling those moments he shared with his wife. He remembers she once asked him to accompany her to church, and the time she asked they should go out and enjoy the natural surroundings. He recalls however that he would always find an excuse not to be with her. Unfortunately, this caused the wife much anguish and rejection. In the end, the wife has lost her desire and love for Harry. The marriage had decayed to such an extent that the wife quickly succumbed to her psychotic condition and died. By God¡¦s hands, two unhappy and alone people from seeing each other in that unknown dream until hugging each other in a special place of natural wonders in this world. They only gained the temporary pleasure, so in the end, they are still separate. I think they should had known each other before their first time marriage,but most of important is they should love God in advance.
