Sebastian Díaz Morales: The Man with the Bag
The theme of ’The Man with the Bag’ is very simple when you define and see it as an existentialistic story. What you see is what, metaphorically speaking, you get. A man walking a path in a deserted and open landscape, carrying a bag containing all his belongings. Again and again he stumbles over the same obstacle, a stone. Running from his fears, from a never materialized sound. Crossing limits, going always in a same direction. This simple storyline encloses, as a metaphor, a portion of the basics of man’s existence. From that notion you can relate and bring the signification of actions, subjects and objects of the movie into multiple relations. This is because the elements of the movie are general metaphors of the bases of our existence.
