I saw part of this movie back in 1998, I think. Unfortunately, I missed the first 15 or 20 minutes, and then a small chunk in the middle.
That said, the "meaning" I got from this film is that you are never too young to be a hero. Or perhaps, regardless of age, there is a time to be selfless and be prepared for the ultimate sacrifice in order to do the greater good.
***mild spoiler alert***
In the young boy's case, he took quite a gamble on the mountain - he could have either met the same fate as those he was leading; or he could have completely failed in his plan, thus leading the bad guys to the village. That would have lead to a bloodbath.
I do need to rent this one and see it again.
What did you pick up from this film, saaivu? Now I'd like to hear your ideas.
Aigin lost everything when his family was killed by the tsjudit. After that, he said that he has no place to wich he belongs to. But the noaidi (Ráste) said that we are all connected to the bigger whole with unbreakable bonds. Aigin understood this in the end and his task now is to be a pathfinder for those who dont understand.
Thats what I think. Anyone else that has an opinion? ;P
Like most things I am nothing, but like everything I am part of a whole.
