Day 208

movie: A Thousand Words
starring: Eddie Murphy, Cliff Curtis
genre: Comedy, Drama
year: 2012
format: Shaw Video On Demand

plot: A fast talking book agent finds himself nearly silenced after mystically receiving a tree that is connected to his soul.  Each time he utters a word a leaf on the tree dies and if the tree dies so does he.

This was brilliant. Simply the idea of Eddie Murphy who is known for his fast talking foul mouthed movies doing a film where he has to completely rely on his body language.  I couldn't have cast it better myself.

This is about finding your center, dealing with your personal issues and finding your true voice.  The character deals with a few usual normal things like the whole concept of miscommunication in relationships.

what do i think i learned from this film?
Choose your words wisely as they might be all you are remembered for.  You always need to take some time to reflect on what's most important and be grateful for having whatever that is in your life.
