Watching this movie really spoke to me, so I thought it would be a good idea to share my comments on it.
It’s a brilliant movie and there’s many ways one can interpret this movie, especially around finding your freedom.
To me, this movie depicts the true meaning of freedom, and what it can accomplish. Not only freedom from government oppression … but complete freedom and peace within.
“People should not be afraid of their government, governments should be afraid of their people.”
Throughout the movie, it shows the people living in a constant state of fear.
Why? Because the government instilled that fear into their minds using control, manipulation and lies.
“Artists use lies to tell the truth, while politicians use them to cover the truth up.”
Lies were easily filtered into the people’s minds through the media’s propaganda and false stories.
The government created war, terror, chaos, diseases and other problems to corrupt the people’s minds and put fear into them.
This meant the people panicked, and when the government promised peace and order, everyone turned to them and abided under their rules.
“If you’re looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.”
To me, the movie portrayed a powerful message through the character Evey (Natalie Portman).
There’s a particular scene where she’s imprisoned which conveys a powerful message.
Throughout her life, she lived with fear and never spoke her truth or did what she thought was right. She followed the governments’ orders.
However, although she was getting tortured and was at her lowest point in the prison, she found something that meant more to her than life.
She found a small part of her that nothing or no one could take away from her. It wasn’t words … it was a feeling. She found something within herself much more powerful than anything in the outward world.
When it was time for her to be executed, she accepted her death without fear.
That’s when the words, “you’re completely free,” were said.
These are very powerful words because it’s more than her release from prison, but a complete freedom within herself.
Now, no one could control her. Nothing could alter her perception of the universe nor force her to live by their rules.
The feeling she felt was far greater than anything the material world has to offer.
This, I believe, is a really compelling message to humanity. It can relate to anyone.
All it takes is to find a part of you that no one can take away, and you’re free. All the fear and doubt that exists in your mind disappears.
For example, a mother who loses her child wouldn’t let anything or anyone stop her from finding her child, because that child means more to her than life itself.
Likewise, if we could all find something within ourselves that goes beyond this world, there’s nothing that can stop us.
I’ll repeat the saying. “People should not be afraid of their government, governments should be afraid of their people.”
Later in the movie, it looks as if the whole of London united and realised the power they had together. The fear of the government no longer existed to them so they all came together wearing the same mask.
It was the mask the character V wore, who never revealed his face. The only thing showed to us is behind that mask was more than flesh. It was an idea. And that idea was bulletproof.
Race, gender, age or division didn’t exist because they all united wearing that same mask. They all became the idea behind the mask.
When asked who V was, Evey said, “He was Edmond Dantes. And he was my father, and my mother, my brother, my friend. He was you, and me. He was all of us.”
Meaning, he was one with the people. All it took was his idea to transform their mindsets to end the political agenda.
