This movie is based on the 2006 memoir of Elizabeth Gilbert, who took a trip round the world after her divorce and her discoveries. Liz travels to Italy, India and Bali on a journey of self discovery.
Personally, I enjoyed the part where Liz was in Italy. She learns the language and I loved the part where she learns to gesture with her hands, like an authentic Italian. OMG I’m totally craving for pasta and pizza now. At India, the pace is slightly slower and it is only towards the end of her stay that it was getting interesting. Bali was interesting because of Ketut, the medicine man, and his cute English. Simple advice given in the simplest form of communication. I also liked what Liz did to help her friend, the traditional Balinese healer. However, what I didn’t get what the appeal of Javier Bardem and why he said the rambutan tastes like when the orange made love with the guava.
Watching the movie does make you want to make something out of your life though. Like you don’t have to wait for your life to be over in order to start doing something or to start learning to cook amazing pasta.
