” A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Together we can move mountains!
The story is about finding a path of light in the all-consuming and never-ending darkness that currently surrounds us. A mendacious force with the singular intent of destroying any sense of equilibrium retained by an individual in peril in order to make any sense out of a world led by chaos.
Song of the same night as a movie injects a dose of inspiration in many who are in desperate need of holding onto even a glimmer of hope amidst such all devouring darkness.
The movie begins with sequences where a pandemic, a sudden disruption, an impending gloom of forceful isolation evidently unsettles a number of individuals. They appear to be struggling around ossifications as adapting becomes a step of paramount importance for them. They fight, bicker, cry alone or with each other. Communication turns into a luxury for some and an impossibility for the others.
However, these individuals, determined to find meaning out of their newfound gratitude for being alive, decide to travel the path traversed by many like William Shakespeare, Wordsworth, Goethe and Dostoevsky. They decide to find meaning through art, a song that shall liberate their souls and tell them that they are not alone in the struggle for survival.
The movie must be watched by everyone as it tells us about light that is seldom found today. It also tells us about a sense of harmony that is increasingly losing its place in a divided world. Further, it acts as an indicator of love triumphing around darkness and chaos, forces that are otherwise invincible.
A song liberates a prisoner from his prison, it helps a bird soar higher up in the sky. A song narrates the perfect tale of freedom, it is the antidote to tedium. A song reminds us that all is not lost, that there is light at the end of the tunnel. A song helps undo the invisible shackles limiting us. They shed a perpetual light on the most precious track one must walk on. It unites people who might not always think alike. It reveals the fact that the candle is burning, it must always burn.
The movie indicates a movement from chaos to order. It is a tale about a single resolution to a plethora of problems, of daring to look in the eye of the impending doom and dismissing the storm with a tune of unison.
