Salutations! As always, welcome, dear readers.
Today, I would very much like to share my thoughts and reflections on a movie that has touched my heart in a way I cannot truly fathom.
Beware, dear reader, as this may contain spoilers.
Mrs. Doubtfire is one of those films who can make you have a sudden grand epiphany about life and films such as this have the potential to change lives. Robin Williams was an actor with an enormous amount of talent and he depicted Mrs. Doubtfire magnificently. Family/comedy films always have a way with people’s heart and it certainly have made its way to mine.
The film was released on the 24th of November, 1993 and it was based on the 1987 novel titled Alias Madame Doubtfire which was written by Anne Fine.
You can watch it anywhere and download it on any torrent sites.
Here is a link for the trailer for your enjoyment, dear readers.
I can very much relate to the film because my parents are no longer together because of their vast differences and how they are much better off not living together. It is the sad reality of life that not all marriages work because of various reasons and factors. In the movie, Mrs. Doubtfire said that, “Sometimes they get back together and sometimes they don’t, Dear.” It may be because the couple both changed and they did not know each other as well as they thought they would. Not all can make marriage work and not everyone is gifted with an everlasting marriage.
This made me realize that anyone who has a complete family should recognize how tremendously lucky they are and recognize how their family is irreplaceable and priceless and how they should not take it for granted. I also thought about how people are prejudiced to children who were born out of a broken family. We must break the stigma that if a person comes from a broken family, it somehow means that he/she grew up in a place without love and care thus, he/she will just end up a failure. Single parents can be loving and caring as much as the parents in a complete family would and their children tend to be more mature because of how they were introduced early to the pains of reality.
Furthermore, I completely understand how the children of Daniel and Miranda coped with their divorce. It is never easy to adapt to this kind of situation and they were lucky to have found solace in Mrs. Doubtfire’s presence (even though it was their own father). It is true that in marriages, the couple can bring out either the worst or best side of each other. If one does not like what he/she became because of the influence and presence of another person, it is natural to want to avoid them. Daniel should have realized how his behavior was affecting the whole family and Miranda should also have realized how she became more focused on her career rather than her own family. Maybe then they could have worked it out. But who knows? Maybe there are marriages who are not meant to last but I believe that it does not mean that they stopped loving each other. It does not mean that they don’t wish well to one another anymore. There are those who just cannot work out their problems and it is fine to leave rather than turning into their worst fear.
Out of all this, I think that love is still worth it. The marriage may have not worked out but they became stronger individually. Love is never useless. We carry with us the love that makes us live, the love that makes us human. Love is a tie that bonds forevermore and connects people in an ethereal dimension which revolves around life and powers the wonders that come with it and I believe that that love turns mere existence into spontaneous living.
As Mrs. Doubtfire once said, “If there’s Love, dear, those are the ties that bind.”
So dear reader,
I hope you will never grow tired of love.
