39. Business or Family ???

There is a scene in the film "GODFATHER" where the Don asks his godson the following question

DON : " Tell me, do you spend time with your family? "
GODSON : " Sure I do. "
DON : " Good.Because a man who doesn't spend time with his family can never be a real man. "

The last phrase in this conversation is the point which needs to be given a closer look ,"A MAN WHO DOESN'T SPEND TIME WITH HIS FAMILY CAN NEVER BE A REAL MAN. "

In our daily life in this competitive world we tend to loose out on the things that must be valued the most ,Family is one such comfort that is overlooked the most out of these.

Lots of pressure ,lots of stress for working parents to bring up their children with proper education ,decent lifestyle in a healthy environment but parents so often than not fail to provide the one thing their sons & daughters want ,"Their parents spending time with them."

PLOT : " The plot revolves around a brother & sister who yearn for the love & affection of their father who keeps his business always ahead of his family. "

As i exited the theater after watching this movie ,i left with an heavy heart.Such is the impact of this movie especially the penultimate scenes & climax which leaves the audience pondering.

"Remember Me"
moves at its own pace that might put off some people but if you have the patience to understand the happenings in the movie ,you will surely be rewarded with an enriching experience.

Directed by Allen Coulter & Written by Will Fetters ,the film is a romantic drama that has a perfect cast who play out their characters with such conviction which makes the audience relate to them.

Robert Pattinson is fast catching up as one of the poster boys of hollywood & he deserves it.His character of a son who refuses his father's wealth & influence is an adorable one.

Emilie de Ravin plays his love interest here ,God isnt she young for her age.I really thought that she was a teenager until i looked up her age.Those two had a nice chemistry throughout the film.

Chris Cooper & Pierce Brosnan enact the roles as fathers of Emilie & Robert respectively ,the veterans made the most out of their roles here ,the other supporting cast also were on par.

The director has brought out the exact emotions required from all the cast whether it might be a serious scene or a comical scene ,there are only few movies that had moved me & this film is surely one of them.

The way in which Robert consoles his sister each & every time is very touching and soothing ,the girl's longing for her dad's presence is very realistic so much that people who had missed spending time with their parents could reflect upon her easily.

Most parents think so much of their children's future that they fail to provide the essential love & care that their sons & daughters require at present ,and by the time they realise that life is all about living in the moments those times would be lost forever.

  • Rating : "PG" for some love making scenes.
P.S : " This is one of many movies made since 09/11 that aim to create emotional responses from the terrorist attack. "
