The Bucket List

The Bucket List is an American film made by director Rob Rehn and released in 2007. The film tells the story of two patients with terminal cancer who face the "death sentence" brought to them by cancer, and how they spend the rest of their lives in abundance and joy.

The Bucket List begins with a spectacular snowy scene in the Himalayas, which seems to correspond to the phrase "eyes closed, heart open"; and the coincidence, the opportunity, of two terminally ill people becoming friends; then Morgan Freeman reminisces about his past when he wanted to teach history and was asked to complete a class assignment This naturally leads to a bucket list; and the "creative" and "daring" plan begins when Freeman learns that he doesn't have long to live and discards the note, which is found by Jack --Completing the list.

The whole film seems to give people two feelings, sadness, and joy, but it is a sense of joy mixed with a sense of nobility and faith, a sense of the content and purpose of the beauty of life in the form of "ridiculousness" (because of the contrast between the specific actions of the film's protagonists and reality), and despite the fleeting time, it is ultimately a sense of beauty, like The people in the portrait, that confidence, temperament, and wisdom, beautiful and moving.

Cure Your: Death is always a topic of endless discussion in movies, but in life, older people may think more about it, and young people don't have the heart to think about these "impractical" issues. The only explanation, I think Zhou Guoping put it very well: we live casually, not bothering to think deeply about some things around us, such as philosophy. Death is also a part of the philosophy of life, and the film quotes a famous quote by Montaigne, "To live is to die. The real meaning may be interpreted as life is only one life and one death, to live with meaning and die with value. Because life is not equal to breathing, life is activity. Since it is an activity, it should not be simply like breathing. This value, to put it in a small way, is to do those things that you think are right with all your might. Freeman, for example, wanted to be a history professor, but could only become a mechanic, which is a permanent regret, but the completion of his bucket list more or less made up for it. Such a life may be satisfying to oneself.

Everyone can make a "bucket list" for himself, or perhaps more aptly, a "portrait of life" because, in our lives, we do not always face death, we live in the present, in reality, not in movies. To put it bluntly, for people who still have ideals and passions, planning their career and life is the most practical action, recording life with images and words, discovering life with eyes and mind, and creating life with hands and pace. In the end, your "life portrait" will become a lifetime Chinese chapter.
