When discussing affecting movies I have ever seen with my friends, I have to mention an European movie, A Thousand Times Good Night. The movie deserves to be regarded as a masterpiece for both its storyline and the artistic conception.

 


Throughout the whole movie, there was no doubt that it presented me with conflicts among Rebecca, her husband and two daughters, Lisa and Stacy, especially when they held different views that whether Rebecca should continue her career as a war photographer. Honestly speaking, when I saw the woman fully equipped with bombs, I was exceedingly nervous how the story would go. I wondered why she had the heart to leave her children alone and approached death. Why she did that? Eventually, I assimilated it was due to the bloodiness of war and that drove people to death. Having returned home, she found her family’s attitude towards her changed gradually. As usual, she devoted her whole being to her family. Nevertheless, when Rebecca accompanied her elder daughter Stacy in Kenya to take photos for her project about Africa, something unexpected occurred. After Rebecca guaranteed that her daughter was safe, she took pictures for the shoot-out desperately. Knowing that they had a narrow escape from death, her husband’s blood was boiled and scolded Rebecca out of the house. Though heartbreaking and guilty, her family tried to alienate her in order to get rid of that horrible life.

 

 


On the one hand, his husband couldn’t stand worrying about her day and night and risking losing Stacy with heart disease. On other hand, Rebecca still chose to follow her heart. As a superb photographer, she turned a blind eye to luxuries but buried herself in revealing the darkness of war. Nevertheless, his husband always believed her safety was primary and she ought to take good care of herself and their daughters. There is no denying that both sides make sense. As the saying goes, there are a thousand Hamlets in a thousand people’s eyes. It’s obvious that we can hold different points.

 

 


As far as I’m concerned, from Stacy said, “They (those children who are in combat zones) need her more than I do.”, I think she could understand her beloved mother and wouldn’t like to be separated with her. Seemingly, the director leaded us to a satisfactory end at the end of the film. Compared with the very beginning of the film, Rebecca saw a body bomb again. However, she paced back and forth and lifted her camera up and down. This time she didn’t press the shutter release but burst into tears. Helpless and distressed, she dropped to her knees. Then came the end of the movie.

 

 


What the movie moved me consisted in the change of the relationship among Rebecca’ family and the actions that Rebecca did in order to reach keep a balance between family and job. In summary, the film depicted Rebecca to a nicety and exposed the horrors of war. It is worthwhile appreciating the masterpiece.
