My sister asked me to do the assignment of my nephew about movies with fantasy/magical theme. I just want to share it.
Movies with fantasy/magical theme:
The Lion (Aslan) > represents God
The Witch (Snow Queen) > represents evil
Wardrobe > represents a magical world where the characters not only find adventures but also find themselves and their purpose.
Labyrinth/maze > reflects an irony of a dangerous world when the lead character tries to escape the horror of World War II.
Chocolate in Chocolat reflects an unspeakable passion/desire.
Ring reflects materialism or loving the world
In the film Joe's Apartment, cockroaches are depicted in a different way. For me, cockroaches are disgusting scavenger creatures but in the movie it's depicted as a friendly creatures.
