Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Very touching and inspiring movie (C&CF 2005) with the simple message of how, when a powerful personality decides to find an heir to their kingdom, their search is for the most innocent of all to inherit the vast kingdom.



But the Powerful One wants to flush out the ones stricken by baser attachment and creates illusions to eliminate them. The innocent one survives, without the illusions ever touching him.



Wonka knows, the heir has to be innocent, and if truly is, no test of temptation will entrap the true hier to the factory.



The other contenders fall to the seven sins (Western thought) or the six enemies (Hindu thought) and eliminate themselves. Greed, Lust, Anger, Vanity and everything you can imagine becomes self-defeating for all of Charlie's competitors. Charlie is too innocent to realize the competitiveness, he just enjoys the ride, appreciates the little creations and maintains a polite and dignified stance.



Must watch this movie.
