A day-dreamer escapes his anonymous life by disappearing into a world of fantasies filled with heroism, romance and action. When his job along with that of his co-worker are threatened, he takes action in the real world embarking on a global journey that turns into an adventure more extraordinary than anything he could have ever imagined. — quoted from Imdb
This wonderful movie aired this month and I finally came to see it. Actually I do not like this movie very much, because the dialogues seemed flat and constructed, the characters unrealistic. On the other side I liked the idea of a person who is captured in her own small world and when getting a special task comes to discover parts of his or her character that he or she did absolutely not expect.
What actually made my day was the way Walter Mitty’s character changed: He had to go the Greenland to find a photographer, from there jumped into the North Sea and ended up fighting with a shark, raced with some Chinese people for a bike to ride up the whole way to a volcano, swapped a gummy puppet for a longboard, saw a snow leopard up at one of the mountains of the Himalayas and and and… It was amazing to watch and to see how first his clothing changed and then he stopped having daydreams and did more sports and was open to new adventures, how he was not scared of talking to people anymore and seemed more self-confident.
So because I do not know whether the dialogues seemed so bad because of the synchronisation or because they were really bad, in the end I recommend this movie to watch. I think I will also try to get the original movie from 1947 and compare them. I wonder which one is better.
