What a perfectly delightful movie! Showing how people can understand another and show love through directing it at a proxy (the mannequin), in a successful effort to touch the person who needed it the most (Lars)....and themselves. The doctor and the brother and sister-in-law were truly wise to include the whole town in on the healing experience. It healed a part of the audience, as well. I loved this movie! Very well acted, very well written and very directed. Thank you, Amazon for including it on PRIME!!!!
Excellent film dealing with love, generosity, kindness, compassion, and of people being encouraged to do what Jesus would, which is to always act with love to others. This film reminds me of the gentle miracles that often occurred with child during play therapy at the mental health center were I worked. The "playroom" was filled with shelves, bins, and myriad toys that young child could select for working thorough their challenges. There was very little information that children can provide when they are suffering from mental, emotional, and or physical traumas at young ages, even though early grades of school.
Lars when through the exact process of working through his inner pain with the miracle of Bianca. He was so thoroughly isolated and frozen in his loneliness - winter being the ideal metaphor - that Bianca was selected because of her guarantee to accept him with no demands. She was the ultimate safe woman for his journey of healing until he no longer needed...
I love this movie. We all have delusions. When is a delusion healthy? When is it a reasonable coping mechanism? And what do we do about it? There is no downside to this film. You learn something. You feel something. You are entertained by a good story well told.
