Abstract

The German philosopher Nietzsche once said "People either never dream or dream interestingly", life is like a dream, but weather or not this dream is wonderful need us to work on our own. The Truman show was a kind of criticism to real life, the director wanted to use the Utopian happy life in Truman's world to contrast the injustice of modern society. By chance I watched "The Truman Show" which directed by Peter Weir and it touched me deeply, Truman's simple and honest character, the harmony and beauty of the small town all so moving. Whether the movie plot, expression and wonderful soundtrack all reflect the director's criticism to real life, the late part of the movie "reality show"director said: "the outside world is the same hypocrisy, same lies and same fraud as the world I give to you ", this sentence described the director want to create a harmonious society, this real society is too hypocritical too dirty. Why does our world have so many fraud, lies and theft Truman's dream world can still become a reality That is the question I would like to set forth herein.
