Hollywood surely knows how to make superhero movies. Maybe I am too wimpy these days, but this one made me cry at the end.
This is a story about human beings,about human nature, about love and hate, about obligations and sacrifices, about choices.
Everyone has both good and bad in them, everyone is fighting his or her own battles, and everyone has to make choices. Ultimately the choice is to love, and only LOVE can save the world. What is true love then? Everyone has to figure it out as well.
On the way back home, my daughter gave me a "101 for dummies about Greek mythology", Ares is Greek, whereas Diana is Roman ("they should at least try to use the same system"), and "gods are immortal, they can not be killed, but I understand this is for the movies". The most interesting she said was about Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation. She is identified with the planet Venus; her Roman equivalent is the goddess Venus. "She is so fickle, because she was born from a blood of her father Uranus (who is so cruel against his own children), and she has that side of him". Aphrodite and Ares, love and war. Time to reread the Greek mythology.
