Today, I want to talk about Thousand Words Before Death.
It's a comedy, hard to believe, right? Starred by Eddy Murphy. It was very funny at the beginning, but later, I found it very educational.
First about reading. Eddy never read a book. He said' when reading a book, I just need to read the first five pages and then the last five, that's enough.' But finally he couldn't speak anything useful, just normal words and simple sentences. When talking to Master Sinja, he found he was out of words. That led to the danger of his life. Cause he pissed Sinja off, so Sinja called a ficus religiosa. L（菩提树）to punish Eddy. When eddy talks, leaves drop. When there's no leaf on the tree, eddy dies. Eddy only could use simple words, that means he had to use many words to describe a thing. So, you dong de.
Reading problems lead to talking problems. He talked much and he cannot control his mouth. That boosted his death.
Reading less also make him morally corrupt. He would do anything to make what he needed became his. Once he pretended his son was going to born( actually his son is six months old) just for a coffee( many people were waiting to buy). He never used his heart to treat anybody. He just pretended. So, in the end, his wife cannot understand his love, his mother couldn't realize him( she was very sad because of the death of his husband, and became a little ... Slow). The shopkeeper couldn't give him what he wanted when he had to keep silent. I think we should warm others, with our true hearts. Our communication is based on it.
Finally, all of above lead to the biggest problem: about medication. He didn't like reading, liked lying, always was chasing fame and money. So he's frivolous. That's a serious problem. We should think about ourselves. Can we calm down when doing something? Can we let all the disturbing things go? Can we do against the distractions self-consciously? Maybe we can't, but it's the road to success.
At last, Eddy calmed down, let everything go, and read Sinja's books. Suddenly he found the meaning of his life. He used all the left words to show his true heart to his wife, his mother, and forgave his father. And, you can imagine, he didn't die. The tree reborned too.
This film is a leader, it can lead you to your heart, so when you're free, watch it and calm, think about. And then you will smile, peacefully.
