Big Fish The movie Big Fish is about a man who’s life revolves around story telling. The story is told about the father from the son’s point of view. Mr. Bloom (the father) tells many different stories to everyone he comes in counter with. He tells his favorite story at his son, Will’s, wedding and Will gets annoyed because he has heard that story thousands of times ever since he was a child. His son Will thinks he lives in a fantasy world and doesn’t trust a word he says. Will states “Its impossible to separate fact from fiction”. He has never been able to trust his dad because of the stories he tells. He never knows what story is true and what story isn’t, Will started to believe nothing was true. That all changes when Mr. Bloom becomes ill and Will starts to ask questions. Will sits at his father’s bedside and asks questions while his father tells more tales. As his father progressively gets worse, Will demands to know the truth. Mr. Bloom only says he is who he is: a storyteller. Mr. Bloom has a stroke which leads him unable to speak and he asks Will to finish his fathers story. He plays along and finishes the story while his dad his dying. He talks about how they escape from the hospital and go by the lake. At the lake are everyone that have been in Mr. Blooms life cheering for him and having a party. Will carries him into the lake where he sees his wife and gives her his wedding ring that symbolized “how he caught his wife” in a previous story. Will then lets his father into the water and his father becomes a “big fish”. Mr. Bloom then dies knowing that his son finally understood the love he had for story telling. The main focus of this movie was to show that story telling can show people different perspectives on life. Just because Will didn’t look deep into what his father was saying, other people might have seen it. The movie Big Fish showed pathos. The emotional appeal was that Will didn’t understand his dad’s story telling until he was on his death bed. Will should have showed more interest in his dad and how his stories are meaningful. At Mr. Blooms funeral, When Will finally realized this, he passed on his father’s tall tale story telling to his son. Remarking that his father became his stories, allowing him to live and tell the stories.
