I watched the movie "The Green Mile" yesterday.

It's a 1999 American fantasy drama.
1999年 アメリカのファンタジードラマです。

It was fabulous and tear-jerking!

I should've watched it earlier.

Not until I talked to a friend of mine did I know it wasn't a war film and then finally did it.

It’s one of the best movies I've ever seen in a long time; it was filled with a lot of laughter and tears.

Have you ever watched it before?

Spoiler alert! ネタバレ注意!

If you are thinking to watch it for the first time, please don't read further below.

In 1935, when Paul is a senior guard in charge of Death Row, also refers to as the "Green Mile", an enormous prisoner, John Coffey, is imprisoned there.
1935年、ポールは死刑囚監房 「グリーンマイル」で主任看守を務めていて、そこへ一人の大男ジョン・コーフィがやってくる。

While most of the guards are cooperative, Percy is a sadistic young man who enjoys demonstrating his power (as he is the governor's nephew) by harassing both prisoners and his fellow officers.

He continues abusing the prisoners, and in the and, gets it in the neck as if having a heavenly punishment - it seems to be his "Karma."
彼は囚人たちを虐待し続け、最後にはまるで天罰がくだったかのように、ひどい目に合うことになる。- 因果応報(いんがおうほう)

There is a very cute cast, which is a mouse, Mr. Jingles.

(He acts amazingly! ^^)
(演技が上手いよ! ^^)

John Coffey is the most important character.

Coffey cures Paul's bladder infection, rescues Mr. Jingles, and even cures the illness of dying the wife of the prison Warden by his supernatural powers.

Eventually, Paul found that Coffey isn't guilty.

Mentioning that he has never seen a movie before, Coffey watches Top Hat with the guards as a last request.
コーフィが一度も映画を観たことがないと言い、最後の願いとして「Top Hat」を観せてもらう。

"Heaven, I’m in Heaven

And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak

And I seem to find the happiness I seek

When we’re out together dancing cheek to cheek"

(I burst into tears when I saw Coffey's happy face and the beautiful dancing and listened to these lyrics.)

Sadly, he is executed the following day.

Believe it or not, he has given Mr. Jingls and Paul an extraordinary lifespan by his healing powers.

Paul believes that his longevity is a punishment from God for executing Coffey.

By the way, one of my friends asked a question about immortality in his entry recently.

To me, I don't want to live forever because I will be very sad to have to live after all my family and friends die.

I only hope to live a long healthy life.

How about you, everyone?
