I saw a movie that made me cry 泣ける映画:「グッド・ライ~いちばん優しい嘘~」



 I love movies that are entertaining. However, I know it does good to me to see severe reality in this world by watching some movies serious. the other day, I saw a movie on video that tells us the very fact that we should know. The movie’s title was “Good Lie”.

 The republic of the Sudan that is located in north eastern part of Africa has been in intermittent state of civil war since 1950s, so the lives of people in the country has been devastated. This movies’ scenario was based on the historical fact that the United States of America once accepted three thousand six hundred refugees from Sudan, who suffered from the second civil war started in 1983.




 Mamere who was a boy living in Sudan spent his peaceful daily life with his family, although they were in poverty. But the civil war stormed their village and demolished everything. In the line of fire, Mamere lost his parents first, then also lost his brothers one by one. Plus, he ended up letting his brother who he relied on be captured by soldiers by his own careless mistake. He walked through about over one thousand and two hundred kilo meters with his friends and a sister left alive to arrive a refugee camp. They then spent their lives there for thirteen years, after that they somehow decided to go to the United States….



 What has been revealed while the Great Britain left EU or Donald Trump won the presidential election was exactly the issue of accepting refugees. However, I didn’t know about the situation of Sudan or the fact that the U.S. accepted a huge number of refugees at all. It seems that some of the casts in this movies were real refugees and some of them were child soldiers. I cried a lot while I saw the movie. I like the ending of this movie and I’m sure this is a movie worth seeing.
