Listening to: ode to melancoly / empyrium
When cinema meets art and feelings... a whole new world reveals...
Who can tell the border line between real and imaginary world? Can any of us prove that what someone feels or believes is a lie? Not me for sure...
Reality has many ways to sense it... and the most magical one is...in my opinion...to explore it with your eyes closed and your insight wide open...
"Pan's Labyrinth" was a great opportunity for me to dive in deep thoughts... an unforgettable experience ... and for sure a movie that can hang the audience is it insane and ridiculous or simply amazing and unique?
For me "Pan's labyrinth" is a masterpiece combining brutality and lyricism
Excellent use of filming and photography along with mystical and intense music
I wouldn't miss that soundtrack from my music collection
But what totally took me by storm was the story
A dark fairy tail
Cruelty opposed to magic
Death and pain, fairies and magic kingdoms, all living in the same world
in little Ofelia's life
And magic is not beautiful
fairies are not seductive and fauns can be evil looking and old
A magic world that ugliness exists
Watching "Pan's labyrinth" the world of Ofelia's cuentos will reveal to you on the big screen
And then, I ask my self about the movie: "What is it about? Wicked thoughts of an unfortunate girl or a secret world that lot's of us live in and most of us are even afraid to admit it to ourselves?"
Well I am not afraid
I was called crazy
but at least I am being true to myself
Life has many paths to walk and I have my own way to walk them through
Things don't have to be pretty or perfect to seduce me
they just have to break my walls and touch me inside
I don't need to use my hands to touch something or my eyes to see
there are things beyond these boundaries
do exist as I believe in them
and I see them with my heart
What if life is cruel and painful sometimes
what if we live in our own dark cave? What if everyday routine struggle us? There is always a magical moment to take us away
a simple thought that can lead us in an unforgettable journey or a great adventure
Don't be afraid to feel things
don't isolate your self because you don't have proof s
just let your self free
expand your limits and live
live in your own cuento
it doesn't have to be pretty or happy ending
it will just be your own
unique fairy tail
Well these are the thoughts of the "little Ofelia" that exists inside of me
the wicked thoughts of me
who lives somewhere between the true and imaginary world for some
And that druantia will suggest you to watch "Pan's Labyrinth"
not to like it
just thought of it after
it might open some paths for you
