Ulubiony film - A Favourite Film
"Life is like a box of chocolates - you never know what it will happen to you" - said the mother of the main character in a Robert Zemeckis film entitled Forrest Gump. Forrest is a young man whose intelligence quotient is 76 points. He tells the story of his life to some people he meets at a bus stop in Savannah. The film is not only interesting, but also beautiful and moving. From his childhood Forrest had problems with his peers, who did not accept him. His only kindred person, friend and afterwards his wife was Jenny. Like a Jerzy Kosinski's character in Being there, Forrest Gump had in his life one authority - his mother. All the time he repeated her words and he was guided by them. In the film, the part Forrest Gump is acted by Tom Hanks. Forrest Gump is a hero in many aspects, he is a baseball champion, then he fights in Vietnam, and after that he makes a fortune on shrimps. Forrest Gump lives in his own world, but in spite of this he is extremely courageous while saving his companions' lives. He is a good, honest man, a gourmet of Dr Peppers drink and the owner of a great fish corporation. All his life he is regarded as a stupid man, but he claims that only those who do stupid things can be called stupid. He marries Jenny and they have a son, who is a wise and an intelligent boy. Forrest Gump is guided in his life by a rule stating that one should forget about the past when a new chapter of life begins. After his wife dies, he comes to understand that death is a part of human existence, and that everyone has to face one's fate. I do not agree that Forrest can be called a stupid man. On the contrary, in my opinion he has a lot of interesting things to say, and being a great optimist, he always looks on the bright side of life.
The history of his life is at the same time shows many aspects of American mentality. It is a romantic and amusing story of an extraordinary man who proves that one does not have to be well-educated and intelligent to achieve fame, wealth and moreover, he tries to convince us that cheerfulness and optimism are also important in our life.
Tom Hanks received an Oscar for his role as the character of Winston Groom's book. The film itself was awarded as many as six Oscars. Forrest Gump arouses not only compassion, it also makes us laugh. It is a very moving film about a man who wrestles with adversities, but first and foremost it is a comedy in which the main character gives us a recipe for a happy and successful life. In one scene, Forrest runs away from the kids, then a miracle happens- he begins to walk without splints and runs as fast as he can. His success can only be attributed to his attitude towards life. He never surrenders; he overcomes difficulties with a smile on his face. Strong and determined, he holds on tight, fights and finally wins.
Forrest Gump is one of the best films I have ever seen, one that is certainly food for thought.
