Into The Woods - A journey through LIFE
16 March 2015 | by evans_p17See all my reviews

Firstly I am very surprised Disney did this, as it is NOT for kids. Sondheim is my favourite composer and I think the film did justice to his lyrics and music. Those of you who could not understand it or follow it, cannot be a big lover on psychology and human behaviour. Sondheim is a psychologist! The woods represent the paths we choose in life, and how wishes cannot always lead to wonderful happy endings (true to life!) You go on your journey, and experience joys and pain and heartache, which you learn from. You finally discover yourself and your true purpose in life. Those of you who said their are no memorable songs in it are not listening to the deeper meaning of those lyrics. No One Is Alone. - You've lost your guide (mother) who meant everything in your world, but there are others out there in that World who are also guides. You just need to open your heart to them, and they will show you the way - put you on the right path.
