Din intamplare mi-am adus aminte de filmul Jack (1996 cu Robin Willams) si m-am uitat putin pe sarite la el. De mult vroiam sa il mai vad inca odata, dar am tot amanat. Mi-a placut tot filmul, dar o parte din el mi-a placut foarte mult, conversatia cu profesorul sau despre faptul ca renunta (pe la minutul 90 din film). Foarte “adanca” explicatia despre stelele cazatoare.
Poate ca fiecare din noi putem fi pentru oamneii din viata noastra o mica stea cazatoare. Nu trebuie sa luminezi pe cerul, doar sa dai putina lumina in jurul tau cand treci prin viata.
Ca sa nu mai complic lucrurile as fi vrut sa gasesc secventa din film, dar nu am gasit-o, dar am gasit replicile. Te las pe tine…
Lawrence Woodruff: You know why I like to teach children, Jack? So I don’t get so wrapped up in being an adult. So I can remember there are other things that are important in life – like riding a bike, playing in a treehouse, splashing in water with your good shoes on. And you, my friend, were my most special student. And until recently, you were everything I ever wanted in a student. You were a shooting star amongst ordinary stars. Have you ever seen a shooting star, Jack?
Lawrence Woodruff: It’s wonderful. It passes quickly, but while it’s here it just lights up the whole sky – it’s the most beautiful thing you’d ever want to see. So beautiful that the other stars stop and watch. You almost never see one.
Jack: Why not?
Lawrence Woodruff: Beacuse they’re very rare. Quite rare. But I saw one. I did.
Jack: I just… want to be a regular star.
Lawrence Woodruff: Jack, you’ll never be regular. You’re spectacular!
Legat de stele cazatoare… sunt oameni care pur si simplu isi doresc sa fie stele obisnuite. Nu putem alege toate lucrurile in viata, sunt lucruri care nu depind de noi. Sper ca intelegi contextul in care vorbesc, daca nu, chiar merita sa te uiti la film.
[Jack, with the appearance of a 72-year old but only 18 years old, arrives at his graduation ceremony]
Lawrence Woodruff: [addressing the audience] I would like to present, to read the graduation speech, this year’s valedictorian: Mr. Jack Charles Powell.
[a round of applause approves of this choice]
Jack: [taking the stand] Thank you… Aristotle.
[Due to his aged condition he has to take out spectacles to read the speech]
Eric’s Brother: Go Jack! Go get them!
Jack: I got it, Eric, I’m cool… I don’t have very much time these days so I’ll make it quick. Like my life. You know, as we come to the end of this phase of our lives, we find ourselves trying to remember the good times and trying to forget the bad times, and we find ourselves thinking about the future. We start to worry , thinking, “What am I gonna do? Where am I gonna be in ten years?” But I say to you, “Hey, look at me!” Please, don’t worry so much. Because in the end, none of us have very long on this Earth. Life is fleeting. And if you’re ever distressed, cast your eyes to the summer sky when the stars are strung across the velvety night. And when a shooting star streaks through the blackness, turning night into day… make a wish and think of me. Make your life spectacular. I know I did. I made it, Mom. I’m a grown up.
Nu ca as fi iesit din comun, dar imi vine sa zic ca I just want to be a regular star!
