INTO THE WILD
10.09.13
Task 1
The movie focuses on different values of life. That you should be grateful for the things that is right in front of you. And that we as humans, should not take things for granted, and not always choose the easiest way out of situations. That is the reasons for the movie being so likeable, in my opinion. Because of the way the movie is being told, the watchers can almost feel the adrenalin kick Chris gets every time he sees a potential food source.

We, who live on this earth, often forget about the beauty we are surrounded with every day. There are so many values in life, but in our daily life we are quickly to forget about them. And this movie really is a reminder. And because of this, I like the movie. We get to see life in an entire different setting.

In the movie we clearly see the contrast in which ways different people want to live their life. And some watchers may feel that it is hard for them to comprehend why some of them would ...view middle of the document...

They look happy. And because of the way the movie is being told, we can quickly see the different identities that they have exhibited.

I think the true meaning behind the movie is: freedom, love but also forgiveness. Chris does not like the way his parents have treated him. Or how they have chosen to treat their life. Instead of saying it right to their face, stating what he means, he lives an anti-materialistic life. He gives away all his money and goes out into the wilderness without any electronic devices. This is his way of being free. Free from his fathers demands.

Even though he left his family behind, and thought that a life without them would be a lot better, he finds himself enjoying the company and people he stumbles over. At the end of the movie he is finally able to admit it to himself, that he has experienced the best moments during this trip when he was with people.

Task 2a
Returning home.
My thoughts have been swirling this last week. The reasons and dreams for me to be out here are starting to blur. I am starting to think that I am ready to forgive. Ready to forgive my parents for acting the way that they have, scaring my sister and me. In my desperate tries of finding food, I have started to ignore the beauty that is around me. And now I am starting to wonder, if the life out here is worth it. God has given me signs, that this is not the life I should be living.

Tomorrow I will start my trip back home, hoping that I will make it back without any further struggles. During this adventure I have still learned a lot that I did not know from before, or maybe things I didn’t want to know it. Happiness only real when shared. Forgiveness is everything. And you can’t live without love.

I have comprehended that life is not easy, but there are things that can make it easier. During my trip I tried to push these certain things away, but as I met more and more people, it got harder. Questions started popping into head. Should I leave them? Or should I stay? But now, as this experience is coming to an end, I am starting to miss those values in life.

Ultimate freedom was my goal. And now I have reached that. There is nothing left for me to do out here. Civilization is no longer my enemy nor poison. And after two years, I am ready to go home. Home to my family.
