“…modern catechesis to a large extent hardly mentions the concept of ‘eternal life’, and the problem of death is only touched upon, and then for the most part only in the context of how to delay its approach or mitigate its attendant conditions. Since many Christians have lost their sense for the ‘last things’, death is surrounded by silence, fear or the attempt to trivialize it. For centuries the Church has taught us to pray that death will not overtake us unawares, that we shall be given time to prepare for it; now, a sudden death is regarded as a blessing. If we do not accept and respect death, we do not accept and respect life either. “ Ratzinger Report, p.145

Good Movie: ‘I am David’, set in 1952 and based on the Danish fiction book written by Anne Holm in 1963. It tells the story of a young boy who, with the help of a prison guard, escapes from a Bulgarian Communist camp, and journeys to Denmark. It may seem hard for 12 year olds to read a book about escape from a concentration camp, but this is a very good story anyone 12 or older. Movie critic Stephen Greydanus writes “As the title suggests, I Am David wants us to experience David’s story through the eyes of a young boy who has never known anything but this camp…

He knows that one day he was taken aside and quietly told how to escape — to climb the electrified fence in the 30 seconds it would be shut down, and that beyond the fence he would find a stash of provisions for the journey to a ship that would take him to Italy, from which he should try to make his way to Denmark.

How the stash of provisions was planted beyond the fence, and why he should make his way to Denmark, David doesn’t know, and neither do we. His mind is a jumble of confused memories, and we piece his past together along with him. Writer-director Paul Feig (TV’s "Freaks and Geeks"), adapting the celebrated 1963 novel North to Freedom by Danish writer Anne Holm, shrewdly structures David’s journey as a puzzle, slowly reconstructing David’s past as he moves toward his future.
