well, holidays are good for movie watching as i don't have many gathering with my relatives. so i randomly picked a movie from PPS and kill time. Fortunately, i picked a good movie and it is a very meaningful one!


It's called "Desert Flower", firstly i was thinking about this is just a story about the African nomadic life, ummmm, so so. but when the story goes on, Waris which stared by Liya was begging on street, and she found her helping hand, Marylin, to let her stay at her home for one night. Marylin was dislike her at first but she found that Waris is good to her so she introduce Waris to work in a fast food shop as clean lady. This is the Moment that start changing her life. A famous photographer, Terry Donaldson, found that she has potential to be a model and gave Waris his name card.


At this scene, i knew that this movie is something about fashion or modeling, then i kept on watching!!! hahahaha. well i am not going to tell the whole story, but the main message that i got is, "You can stand out to fight for something for yourself, for the country, for your race, for the world, even you come from the place that no one knows." Waris turns her life to be a model, a member of United Nations to fight for the rights for Africa women and the world. Her speech really touches me and makes me cry.


This is a good movie, not because of the scenes are beautiful, actors or actresses are attractive, it is because the message behind is powerful and it touches me a lot!!!
