A film by Terrence Malick
Cast: Brad Pitt, Sean Penn, Jessica Chastain
The summer days of a family in waco Texas in 1956. The eldest sons notices the conflict with his parent and his father’s teaching.
A great film by Malick an ambitious film. About this family in Waco Texas in the 50’s who has 3 sons and the father teaches his sons about life. The thing is it is about life, beauty of the earth, and his father and his oldest son. A father who is consume by his work, and have strict rules. Life was simpler back then and people was letting their window open even their door without worrying that someone was going to get in and rob you. Life was flowing in the summer. Malick make sure showing the that as the camera moves slowly in the direction of the wind. The boys are trying to grow and finding who they are. They are secrets going around. Like I said they never lock the doors and windows back then it was awesome, a friend of mine told me back then they never lock the windows and doors. People were nicer back then and were doing BBQ inviting each other having fun in the summer. Real nice film a great one at that By Malick about birth, life and death. Beautiful cinematography especially at the beginning of the film. You light think that Brad Pitt ‘s character who has a crew cut that was the thing back then that he was a strict disciplinarian, yes he is back then that is the way it was now days some parents does not discipline their kids or if they do, it is not strict enough. Later on his eldest kid understood why he was so strict pay attention to the dialogue, that is part of growing up. Remember one thing we have little time on this earth and in a blink of an eye it can be over.
