Life Set Up
I was extremely excited about the movie last year when I heard it won't be in theater until March 2011 in countries other than America, I nearly faint. The reason to watch the movie is pure: Keira Knightley, Carey Mulligan and Andrew Garfield, for God's sake, who happened to be my favorite English actors. I even watched their press conference, listened to the OST for a hundreds' times and spent only a few days finishing reading the original novel. All in all, I am crazily expecting the movie.
The book is written in a poetic language, very readable but not specific. It creates a vagueness that blurs every detailed settings but the protagonists and their heart even which is not inclusively expressed. I don't like the way in which Ruth was portrayed as the absolute villain. She is just different and desperate. Everybody knows the truth but they decided to let it go and dream their beautiful dream about the deferral while she speaks out what she think and urged what she want. She is just not the perfect piece that Hamshail creates and honored. She is selfish and self indulgent. But she can be a total bitch in the morning but still the best friend for Kathy during the night. In contrast, I think Kathy is just the ideal model, the perfect example that teachers in Hailsham want to create and introduced to the wide world. But her submissiveness make me feel the untruthfulness in her character.
I do think about the topic when I was little:Does Clones have soul at all. Can they think for themselves and truly feel the pain in their heart when they break apart and witness the death of their beloved ones? I began to realize how selfish human beings are in the particular movie even though we were not shown any major decision makers behind the veil. Human create those creatures, believing their life is worthless though they are fully-equipped with anything as identical as real human beings. The stupid Gallery thing is such a humiliation of human beings of exploiting those beautiful souls. "There's nothing we can help, you poor creatures!" was the most devastating line in the book as well as in the movie.
I could not imagine the day when I will witness a living clone being donate his organs to save my life and smile to me and say to me:" Hey, I am very glad I could help, I could COMPLETE with pride now". It's so creepy even to think. I hate their predictable lives where the only purpose of growing up is to die for people who might not have a nice and clean heart as they do. I feel really really sorry for them. This would probably be the worst common that I've ever written because the story certainly gives many things to think about which I might not understand at this age or something.
