My Truman show.

Leave a comment

Yesterday I watched the movie The Truman Show. At first a disturbing movie, but the pieces fall together after a while, and the more I thought about it, the more I got it.

This morning I watched the ending scene again, and it occured to me that my life has a lot in commun with this story.

If I replace :

the director of the show- played by Ed Harris- by my father.

the biggest studio ever build by the warm cocoon where I grew up;

I suddenly understand both viewpoints, aswell the directors as the one of the star of the show, who never ever wanted to be a star.

It was hard for me, to find out that the real world was outside that warm “studio”, but the sense of freedom I gained since I opened the door is much more heartwarming than any certainty I had inside.

Real freedom is being able to decide by yourself.




I  just  watched this film .

I’m  impressed …a lot!!!

Charmed by the same stubbornness I see in some of our couch surfers travelling the world, although they might not have been facing the same extreme circumstances as the young man in the film.

Shocked by the end too.

I hope a lot of young people have the same courage to try to find truth in life, but I also hope not everyone has to go this far to find out that HAPPINESS  IS ONLY REAL WHEN SHARED !!!
