Watching Awakenings was a very moving experience for me. The film has obvious advantages from its technical side, like high level acting with masterful leading roles of Robert De Niro and Robin Williams. Dr Sayer care for patients is admirable, especially when we considerate negative attitude of other doctors. The most striking thought coming out from the movie was how fragile the life is. Leonard pointed out that we need to appreciate little things more because when we are healthy, we forget how valuable they are. I think that the scene when dr Sayer asks Eleanor for a coffee, shows how whole this situation changed him and his perception of life – and it should lead us to make a conclusion about our lifes.
