The Truman show

“The Truman Show” is a Peter Weir Dramatic film which is center in the life of Truman Burbank to make the most famous reality on television.
It takes place in the United States and was premiered on 1998 with three nominations for the Oscars, this movie won the gold globe awards for best drama actor and best soundtrack.

The actors in this movie are Jim Carrey as Truman Burbank, and Ed Harris as the director of the famous program.This story start in one day of the life of Truman, while he was getting into his car a reflector fall from the sky, after exanimate the strange thing, he get into his car and turn on the radio and listened: “parts of a plan are falling to the sky don’t worry”… with that tense in the first part of the movie we enter in the big reality. All the things that Truman does are controlated by the director of the program, all the things that he know are false also his wife.

This film shows us that people sometimes is blond for getting money, in this case they ruin the life a man without care about his feelings, it shows a capitalist society.

In the movie the special effects, in the last scenes are incredible, when they make the terrible storm, to try that Truman doesn’t escape of the cruel true.
In this movie you have to analyze the simboligists too, for example the name of the protagonist TRUMAN that have the symbolisms of a true man, the director with his staff are on the moon of the set, that represented the feelings of the people, another thing is the name of the city Seaheaven that means sea heaven and the slogan of the city which is "Omnis pro uno" that in Latin means all for one that one obviously is Truman.

That movie makes you fell terrible because all the things that Truman have to pass to get free for that lovely prison that they created for him, but is a good movie to understand a lot of things.
In my opinion, this film is excellent, because it’s very moving and very realistic.
In the modern society the people don´t care about the rest.
