Dan is living in a mouse community. After being raided by the humans the mice establish their own town near a stream. Something happens to the woman Dan loves and wants to marry. With a wounded heart, he decides to leave the town. After the most adventurous journey of his life, he ends up in an amazing world. Dan tells his story to a young mouse who is eager to go the world of amusement. The story is full of lessons, values, and morals. Dan closely observes the behavior, the miseries, and the troubles of the powerful and intelligent creation of God. He recalls a speaker in his community had said, "The world is changing. Man, who once had dignity, is now losing honor because of his corrupted behavior. If he does not make reforms, he himself will be the cause of his own elimination from the surface of the earth. Man is planning to go to Mars in order to find the existence of life, meanwhile he has made his own plant miserable for all that exist on it." A tiny creature - and insignificant being brings back wisdom and knowledge that heals the wounds, refreshes the souls, and quenches the thirst.
In this volume, Richard Gilmore explores film as a channel through which to engage in philosophical reflection and analyzes the relationship between philosophy and film. This book argues that philosophy and film can and should be used for the amelioration of life's difficulties and the promotion of life's boons. Gilmore identifies how philosophy and film complement and enrich one another and explores their relationship by connecting classic wisdom texts to significant movies. For example, the volume analyzes the Coen brothers' films The Big Lebowski and A Serious Man in light of The Book of Job. Gilmore considers the ancient idea of philosophy as "spiritual exercise" and a way of life. The volume concludes by examining what the author labels "sublime conversations" as the highest expression of philosophy. The book identifies and dissects these conversations in movies directed by the likes of Robert Bresson, Yasujiro Ozu, Jean-Luc Godard, and Ingmar Bergman, among others.
