競賽影片：送信到哥本哈根 (I'm David)
When I am moody, the movie “I Am David” makes my day. It’s the story about a twelve-year-old boy, David, who forced apart with his parents and grew up in Bulgarian communist concentration camp during Cold War. Life in it was dark and desperate. As a child, he could only imagine what the outside world was like through his best friend Johannes’s description. One day, David was given a sealed letter and he was instructed to bring it from Bulgaria to Denmark. It sounds a bit ridiculous for me at first. A boy wants to cross the whole Europe merely on foot? But the director Paul Feig did a great job interpreting this amazing travel. You won’t feel over-dramatic or unbelievable of it. Instead, you will be touched by David’s journey. The precondition to get the journey started is to escape from the prison. I was extremely nervous when he climbed up of the electricity fence! My heart beat fast while watching this part. Along the way, there was a sound kept recalling in his brain: “Do not trust anyone”. How depressed the reminding was! But well, this is the only hope for him to freedom. The encounter in Switzerland was the turning point for David and it is also the most impressive plot for me. He came across an old artist named Sophie at the border. What surprised Sophie was that David looked just like her dead grandson. Both of them had gloomy expression in their eyes and on their face. Here you can realize how strict and constrain the education was in the camp. People could not be themselves under suppress. After Sophie realized homeless David’s purpose, she took him to her house and treated him as her real grandson. Here, David opened his mind and also brought out his innocence and reliance of family. The next day he saw a book and surprisingly noticed that the picture of author on the back had the same facial features like his mother. He then handed in the sealed letter to Sophie. (Gave Sophie the secret sealed letter? David must trust her very much to give her such an important thing.) Being aghast by his identification paper, Sophie tried her best as quickly as possible to send him to Denmark. It was so lucky for David to meet such a kind-hearted woman. I burst out tears at the end when he hugged his mother and said, “Hello, I am David.” He finally reunited with his mother! Then who was the man at the beginning? Why did he try to help David? Watch the movie by yourself. His real identity will surprise you. Paul Feig also used some flashback to connect between David’s memory and the present time of the journey. After watching “I Am David”, I cherish the moment with my family and appreciate all the people who have ever helped me. This is really an inspiring movie for all ages!
