The Truman Show

I thought its better to start writing about the move “The Truman Show” This is about a person who lives his life without knowing his whole life is a TV show, every thing he does is captured and put on TV as “Truman Show”. The Fact, before Truman born he was on TV as a Sonogram and he is being adopted by the show company. Truman’s house, town he lives, his office and even the places he has to visit as an insurance salesman are inside a large dome which is the second man made structure seen from space. Inside the dome even a beach and a shore where his favorite place and the saddest memory stay (This is where he lost his father while on a boating journey after faced for an unexpected storm.) He’s being loved by his fans, producer and everyone else. It’s the most popular show on TV.

Everyday he starts his day by saying “good morning” to the family next door and says “In case I don’t see you, Good Afternoon, Good Evening  and Good Night”. The show’s being telecast while Truman lives his life, without knowing every one around him are pretending and lying to him. There are hidden cameras capturing him, in places including the bathroom mirror, car audio, rings, trash cans  and in department stores, while the producer Christof talking to everyone around him giving advice through there hearing sets to put him on TV.

The show goes well until Truman meets his father as a “home-less”  few times suddenly,(After he drowned ) and the memories of his colleges crush starts haunting him.  Every time he feels strange, about what’s going on in his life and his father sudden appearance, (Its being messed by everybody to avoid him talking to father), he talks to his best buddy without knowing the truth that he also pretends.

Truman proves to his wife that everybody’s doing a routine according to his appearance in certain places .He decide to fly to Fiji for a holiday, where the woman in his dreams lives in. Because after saying Truman “Every body’s pretending Truman” she was taken away from the set. The person pretends as her father said “We are moving away to Fiji”. But his wife doesn’t like that idea and Truman alone able to come up with his escape plan. One day the producer noticed Truman still sleeping in his basement but Christof felt something strange about it. He sent in the buddy with bear pack to wake him up and to comfort, but Truman able to escape by keeping a dummy. Everyone in dome looking for Truman, every camera being checked for him but nobody could find him.

Suddenly one camera found Thurman sailing in his small boat.

The producer doesn’t want Truman to know the truth, and about the real world.

But Truman found the staircase to the exit door by the edge of the dome and leaves form that saying “Good bye” to all his fans and saying “Incase I don’t see you Good Afternoon , Good Evening and Good night”

Biography to watch

1)      Copying Beethoven (2006)

[ Distributed by Metro-Goldwyn-Maye]

I watched the Trailer of “copying Beethoven”







A large collection of Beethoven’s hearing aids, such as a special  ear horn, can be viewed at the Beethoven House Museum in Bonn, Germany.






*           “Around 1796, by the age of 26, Beethoven began to lose his hearing.”

his habit of immersing his head in cold water to stay awake



2)      Perfume: The Story of a Murderer (2006)

The second movie trailer was The “Perfume: The Story of a Murderer ” bit of a horrific story of  Jean-Baptiste Grenouille (an olfaction genius) who was  gifted for his sense of smell and how all it takes him in to a  dark end but an invention of the ultimate or the perfect scent that will give  him a chance to be the king and own himself the crown of the perfumery industry. This happened because the finding of his secrete formula for the perfume but the ugly truth is it was because of a murdering a woman and he fond the missing ingredient for the perfect scent.

3) Finding Neverland (2004)

“ As applied for every other thing in  life we don’t know a part of the history or its being barred ” same applied for the movie /Film/ Cinematography because some small things such as Johnny Depp {Famous for his role as Captain Jack sparrows in “pirates of the Caribbean” }was playing the main role of “Finding Neverland” (2004) [as well as  “Alice in Wonderland” ] this also featuring a true story about the play writer who wrote the Novel /the play “Peter Pan”

Where  J. M. Barrie got his inspiration form, for the screen play/Novel “Peter Pan” he created peter pan, a boy that never grows up and can fly, after seeing the small kids bouncing on a meters  he thought peter should fly. Film/Movie shows the Scottish playwright cope with the real life specially  with Kids mistaken as trouble makers  and never took serious but observing these kids was the secret of him for beginning a well known play writer from writing the  script for “Peter Pan”

Then I was watching the trailer “Alice in wonderland (2010)” mainly I was hoping to see the live characters in the story book pictures I seen when I was a kid but after seeing the cat that has shark teeth and the ugly creatures taken from some nightmare was not a pleasing visual even for an adult. These may chase away the kids from watching it but the same motion Picture Production company “Walt Disney” production “Maleficent ” might get 10/10 from any age fan, because of the visual appealing and the smooth blending of the sequence even though it tells the “Sleeping Beauty”story  that has the film script of nowadays modification.

Suggestion  :  watch the  (Original 1951) Alice In Wonderland trailer to see what the real Fairy Tale “Alice in Wonderland “ looks like [Production company Walt Disney Productions ]
