An individual's behavior is not independent of his environment. Το θεμα περιπλεκεται ακομα περισσοτερο, οταν στο προσκηνιο μπαινει μια δευτερη ακομα πιο προβληματικη οικογενεια. Another profound element of American Beauty is in the tag line: look closer. Carolyn Burnham shields herself from sadness by adopting a positive-thinking philosophy, a philosophy of self-affirming mantras and harsh self-discipline. It's an important film for society because there's so much society needs to learn. I don't think it could have been any better. The plot is very intelligently built, constructing a true indication of the sad situation of the American society, and an excellent ground for the actors.
This is where Lester differs from her: his emancipation is enabled by him discarding the constraints of 'normal life' and following what his heart desires. It depends on how you look at it. Remember that all the old men and women in the nursing home were once little kids. Seemingly beyond redemption, Lester transforms from being a loser. If you don't believe me, walk into a pre-school and then walk into a nursing home. You will never, ever look at life the same way.
After watching this movie, viewers will think long and hard about their own lives as well as the lives of people around them. His company is downsizing, and he, like all the other employees, has to justify his position to the newly hired efficiency expert to keep his job. Carolyn, relatively new to the real estate business, wants to create the persona of success to further her career, she aspiring to the professional life of Buddy Kane, the king of the real estate business in their neighborhood. Some people criticize the Ricky Fits character because he records his life experiences on tape and doesn't actually experience them. He is a husband to real estate agent Carolyn Burnham and father to high school student Janie Burnham. Ο καθενας απο τους τρεις απολυτα αποξενωμενος στην προσπαθεια του να βρει το δρομο του επαναστατει σε καθε τομεα, που πλαισιωνει την οικογενειακη και κοινωνικη του ζωη. American Beauty reminds us that, like Lester, we really have no idea what we really want.
. An amazing movie, strongly recommended. A film like this not only entertains while you're in the theater but also drops subtle questions in your head about the nature of human behavior and the gulf between fantasy and reality. In a physical sense the past and the future don't exist. Everything we do, everything we achieve, every bit of happiness we experience -- they are all eventually buried in the past by time.
We live in a world of aesthetic subjectivism. Furthermore, Alan Ball's original screenplay is slightly edited. It is a phrase which resonates throughout the film: for Benning's pawn, life is all about keeping-up appearances. Oleh Dunia21 Synopsis After his death sometime in his forty-third year, suburbanite Lester Burnham tells of the last few weeks of his life, during which he had no idea of his imminent passing. It left many questions in my mind, and most of them cannot be answered. This film left me gasping for air: its hyper-realism conveys, at the same time, a portrait of the suburban comedy, a jolting-shock of realisation, and a cathartic sense of hope. Everyone is nice in public, yet on the streets they blare their horns, scream, and swear.
If you want to watch a light-hearted film with some elements of comedy and some elements of drama, don't see American Beauty. Lester's wife, played by Annette Benning, is the most success-driven character in the story which renders her the most hopeless in the film's tone of moral conviction. In my view, a film that makes me think after I watch it is second-to-none, and this film certainly delivers in that aspect. He finally snaps when he becomes infatuated with one of his daughter's friends. Janie tries to steer clear of both her parents. Mendes portrays this transformation admirably well: he shows Lester on his 'path to enlightenment' pushed up against a grim background of suburbanite existence. What one person finds attractive, another may find repulsive, yet the urge is there for people to assume aesthetic absolutism.
How can there be beauty in it? I congratulate Sam Mendes for his direction of this film, as well as Alan Ball for writing it. But time moves inexorably in one direction. I rose out of a long, deep depression and started out into the world. Perhaps that is why this film hits close to home for so many viewers. This film is one of a kind. The entry of Angela and the Fittses into the Burnhams' lives ultimately leads to each of the players confronting what is truly in his or her heart. Self-help is just a euphemism for self-deception.
But inside, Lester is slipping deeper and deeper into a hopeless depression. He finally snaps when he becomes infatuated with one of his daughter's friends. Din cauza plictisit de viață, el folosește droguri și întotdeauna vis de Angela - fetița de 16 ani a fiicei ei, după ce a văzut-o o dată dansând la școală. Lester merely walks mindlessly through life, including at his job in advertising. I listened to the message of American Beauty - look closely and you can find Beauty in anything - and it changed my life.
I believe that the traits which many of the characters in this film have are found in many people around the world. Mendes depicts a certain people who, to varying degrees, all strive for a certain 'American Dream', yet so few actually attain it. Για οποιοδήποτε νομικό ζήτημα, να απευθύνεστε απευθείας σε αυτούς τους φορείς καθώς η ιστοσελίδα μας δεν συνδέεται με αυτούς, και οι οποίοι φέρουν και την σχετική ευθύνη για την παροχή υπηρεσιών τους. Try walking into a job interview without a tie. Janie tries to steer clear of both her parents.
Characters are stereotypical, but viewers will hardly notice unless they're ultra-critical. Although Lester and Carolyn once loved each other, they now merely tolerate each other. In the end, however, she is not what she makes herself out to be. We are only conscious in the present. Reality is shaped by perspective.
