The NeverEnding Story

Watching The NeverEnding Story certainly brings back my childhood memories. The film was released in 1984, the year which I was born.



I remember I couldn't understand a word they said, not having English as a mother tongue. However I was deeply fascinated. I had watched it dozens of times as a kid. And today, I decided to relive this experience. This time, with a better understanding of the whole story.

The story was about this boy Bastian who decided he should listen to his dad and stop his imagination and daydreaming, before he got hold of a mysterious book which was "not safe" for him to read. Curious, he ventured into the world of Fantasia, which was a world of human fantasy. Fantasia was being consumed by the "nothingness" because human was losing hope. A child warrior, Atreyu was chosen to begin a quest to save Fantasia. Bastian soon realized that while he was following Atreyu's adventure, Atreyu was following his as well.

Yes, I grew up watching this as well! Except, I was 7 years old when it came out in 1984, so I was able to watch it on opening day.

As a little boy, this movie opened up my imagination. That and Labyrinth, which I see you are in the process of downloading and watching.

I own both movies on DVD, and now I think you've inspired me to go re-watch them both. Thanks!

David, I love Labyrinth more than this. David Bowie was amazing, and the story was more interesting to me.
