Last night, when I went through all the movies available in Youku, I happened to come across this movie, Lion. India seems always makes good movies, so naturally I gave it a try. The beginning of the movie soon attracted me. It depicts a scene where a little brother, together with his elder brother, tried stealing coal from a running train. The closeness between these two brothers, the sparkling light in the little boy’s eyes, and their efforts made to make the life of their family better really deeply attracted me. My heart went up and down along with the little boy’s happiness, sorrows. How innocent kids are, and thus they are so vulnerable to the outside world. Hence, when I saw the homeless kids in the movie who showed mercy to the little boy kidnapped by some strange and horrifying men, I cried together with the little boy. It’s like I am the little boy. I feel so desperate, helpless and homesick. I miss my mum and my brother who are always so nice to me. It’s natural for any human being to long for their loved ones on occasions like these, I suppose. Since the elder brother loves the little boy significantly, so I was also wondering how worried the elder brother could be.
After some struggles in his life, the little boy finally ended up with being adopted by a really loving family in Australia. This Australian couple adopted two Indian kids. Just like any audience might have speculated, maybe they adopted kids because they are infertile. However, it turns out the couple can have their own babies. It’s just they chose to not have kids cause there are enough people in this world. So why not help those people who are suffering like these two little Indian kids? This woman’s thoughts really are thought-provoking, which made me think a lot. Yeah, the world, seemingly peaceful and happy, is inundated with miserable stories. So why not make the living ones happy and enjoy their life? This made me also think about my own family and motivated me to make my minds to take better care of my own family.
Good movies inspire people. Thanks, Lion.
