Dear Mrs Galletta,
I’m writing to you to let you know what I think about the film “Lion”.
It was an emotional and really beautiful film. It had several hidden
meanings that were fun to find. During the comments at the end of the
film I didn’t have time to say what I thought about them, so here they
-About the pictures and about the scenes I think that the director
chose them carefully, like the butterflies at the beginning of the
film or the kite Saroo saw when he was brought to the woman’s house: I
think that they represent Saroo’s will to be free from all the
difficult situations he was facing, they give a feeling of peace and
-The interesting investigation on how even the smallest things can
remind us of our deepest thoughts or memories we wanted to forget or
accidentally forgot. Like the jalebis that Saroo can’t resist to eat
as soon as he sees them.
In the end I wanted to thank you, Mrs Galletta, for this fantastic
opportunity to watch a film in English and such a beautiful one. To be
honest I didn’t expect it to be so interesting and moving.

“I liked the film because its very meaningful and emotional. It gives us another chance to change our lives.
My opinion on this film is that we can get to know the world behind us.how people specially children survive without a house, food, family, protection and specially Love.We can get to know what is the difference between Rich and Poor life. And what is Adoption look like and how
responsible we should be.
My favourite part is when Saroo recall his childhood memories, when he saw JALEBI because memory is what we cherish most as a Human.Because memories are where we start to learn about our world where we explore and try to figure out what is the meaning of LIFE. Childhood memories are something we SHOULDNT forget wether they are good or bad, happy of painful, because thats the time we try to communicate with each other our family and friends.

I liked the film because it’s amazing, emotional and it’s a true story. For example I was impressed when Saroo helps his mother Kamla whit the stones. My best scene was when Saroo found the mother Kamla and sister Shekila at the end of the film because I was moved from the Saroo’s dream realized. The film presents the theme of child-labour and my opinion is a bad thig because the children have the right to play and study. Thinking about child-labour, I realized how much I am lucky girl who has a hobby, who goes school and who has some friends to have fun with. While some children in India are forced to work just to help their family to ear money to eat.
