Untitled 3 humor, prison, shawshank redemption

        The Shawshank Redemption is a movie about time, perseverance, and loyalty. It may not be exciting, but how two men who spend a lifetime in prison become friends and fight desperation.The story is told by “Redding” Redding (Morgan Freeman), who has been within the walls of Shawshank Prison for a long time and his main entrepreneur. He can give you everything you need: cigarettes, candy, even a small pickaxe like an amateur geologist. One day he and his accomplices see the last of the prisoners unloading the bus and bet who will cry and who will not cry on the first night in prison. Red bets on a tall, skinny boy named Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) who looks like a baby in the woods.

      But Andy doesn’t cry and Red loses his cigarette. Andy surprises everyone in Shawshank. He is so determined and strong that nothing seems to be able to bring him down. Andy looks like a bank clerk and was involved in the murder. She’s clearly innocent, and there are all kinds of details about her case, but after a while they start to feel a little untrue. or not) and the measured time elapses. Red is also a shooter. Every now and then he measures up for decades to watch and measures his length (20 years, 30 years) and asks if they think he has been rehabilitated. Oh yes. He answers. But as the years passed, his convictions faded and he appears institutionalized. Like another old man who commits suicide after a period of probation, he is no longer real and cannot imagine life outside.
Redd’s storytelling allows him to represent every inmate who understands Andy’s steadfastness and integrity over the years he has lived through. Andy won’t kiss your ass. He will not hesitate. But he’s not violent, just absolutely sure of himself. For Ranger (Bob Gunton) he is both a challenge and a resource; Knowing all about bookkeeping and tax filing, Andy is soon transferred from his prison job to the library and assigned to the principal’s office, where he sits behind a calculator and oversees the principal’s ill-gotten gains. His fame spreads and he eventually comes up with a tax and pension scheme for most officers in the local prison system.
There are important moments in the film, with Andy using his powers to get a cold beer for a friend who works on the roof. Or when he befriends a former prison librarian (James Whitmore). Or when he oversteps his bounds and is placed in solitary confinement. What baffles everyone in prison and us silently is that he sees everything good and bad as part of a larger pattern than he can see as a whole. , accepts.
The partnership between the characters played by Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman is essential to the development of the story. This is not a “prison drama” in the traditional sense of the word. This is not about violence, hooliganism or melodrama. The word “redemption” is in the title for a reason. The film is based on the story, Rita Hayworth and Stephen King’s Shawshank Redemption, which is very different from most of King’s works. The horror here is not of the supernatural kind, but the kind that flows through the sensations of a person’s 10, 20, 30 years of life, out of control in the same constant daily prison routine.
The director, Frank Darabont, paints the prison in gray and gloomy shades, so that when important events occur, it seems to have a life of its own. Andy, played by Robbins, keeps his ideas alone. So, as Freeman plays, red is an important element of the story. By closely observing this person over the years, we can observe changes and measure their impact on those around us. . And there is always something else going on, hidden and hidden, which is only revealed at the end.
The Shawshank Redemption is not a depressing story, although I may have made it that way. There’s a lot of life and humor in it, and a warmth in the friendship that develops between Andy and Red. There are even tensions, but not when you expect them. But the film is mostly an allegory about maintaining self-worth in spite of everything. If the movie is a bit slow in its middle paragraphs, that’s probably part of the idea, to give us a sense of the passage of time, before the glory of final redemption.
