Once again, I fell victim to music.
I do think that movies/film/animation rely very much on music and the soundtrack. They’re like the unsung heroes.
This time, it was the song “Let It Go” that caught my attention, and off I went to watch the animated film, “Frozen”.
The song, and this Youtube clip, really captured my heart and ran away with it. The film itself is a good one, but nothing beats this sequence, and even now, 2 weeks after I watched this animation, I still love it.
That one sequence captures the essence of the film itself, I feel, and very much also the essence of human emotions. It starts off with anguish, anger, some guilt, some fear, a lot of pain, heartache and despair. It’s all there.
Then there’s the point when she actually lets go. There’s playfulness, and there’s a little bit of innocence, and so so much beauty. There’s some doubt, and then there’s delight. It truly does feel like liberation, like letting go.
Most importantly, there’s conviction.
“Here I stand, in the light of day.”
I’ll make it through another day.
