Continuing yesterday’s film theme with 400 Blows I was reminded of the end of Pelle the Conqueror where Pelle finally realizes that he cannot stay with his father and must leave everything behind and venture, alone, to America if he wants his dreams to come true. For some reason the end of this movie always gets me.
If you had to leave everything behind to accomplish your dreams would you? Could you? If you had to bring with you only the most loyal and most loving of companions (family) would they go?
Looking at people that have changed the world often they have had to make the biggest sacrifice. Such noble acts are inspiring.
