Gravity

A movie that reminds us about bigger things we have no merit for, we often take for granted, and our whole life is built upon.

General impression:
When Sandra Bullock and George Clooney play the main characters in a movie, one can (usually) expect some Hollywood movie stereotypes, but “Gravity” evokes such powerful essential facts about the human condition, that the rest becomes irrelevant. Despite missing the few first minutes of the movie, I enjoyed it a lot, and the main reason why I liked it was not necessarily the production itself, but all the thoughts and feelings it stirred in me. I watched many minutes of this movie in tears. It was beautifully made, and universally touching. Everyone on Earth can relate to gravity. We don’t usually think about it, but we experience it every single day, every single moment. It is one of the main reasons why life as we know it is the way it is. This movie can make you think about life on a small (personal) scale, but also on a big (cosmic) one. We all need to remember (at least from time to time) that life on this planet is a privilege, and that we should appreciate… everything more.

Highlights:
Wonderful idea and beautiful imagery.

Downside:
There’s not a lot of diversity in this movie, but there’s also no real need for it.

Would I see it again? – Yes, someday

My Rating (1 to 10): 9

Recommended: Yes!

Suggestion:
Have hankies close, and indulge in your own thoughts :-)
