A heart-warming, feel-good film that hits the right emotions, sends the right message and just makes you glad you watched it.
What’s the film about?
“Luca, is a coming-of-age story about one young boy experiencing an unforgettable summer filled with gelato, pasta and endless scooter rides. Luca shares these adventures with his newfound best friend, but all the fun is threatened by a deeply-held secret: he is a sea monster from another world just below the water’s surface.”
Luca is discovering his identity in this film, who he really is, what does he want, how others would perceive him and irrespective of that, to own his identity when others don’t. Somewhere in that storyline, you get absorbed by his character, relating with him and finding yourself in that character and that’s the most epic thing about this film.
The character, Luca is one full of curiosity, is innocent towards most things, and at the same time constantly discovering new things. You just tend to connect this with how every child is at this age, and how, with adulthood, much of those things change with time, but watching this film also shows the essence of those character traits that is somewhere deep down hidden inside us.
Moreover, amongst all his characteristics and the storyline, another inspirational aspect of the film was the determination shown from the character towards his dream. And not just that, but as he learns new things, how that dream changes, but yet the determination remains the same.
His friends are a constant support in his life, helping him learn new things, right there by his side, and even when they aren’t on the same side, the aspect of friendship deep within still remains the same.
Point after point, if there is one thing to notice, its that there is so much to learn from the film and the character, Luca. Its just a brilliant film to watch, with a number of takeaways, and more over, the time is well-spent and well-invested.
