This is probably an old movie, definitely not from after the 1990s. I don’t remember the plot well, but I remember a scene near the end of the movie. The budhist monk and his disciples are talking philosophy and the monk asks:
-If the surface of the world hurts our feet, because it is uneven, because of gravels, thorns, etc. , what should we do? Do we cover the surface of world with skin?
-We should cover men’s feet with skin – replies one of the disciples.
It’s basically about how people need to find strength in themselves to deal with their problems and how it is beter for men to be taught how to adapt to the adversities of life than to try wrestle these adversities from the equation, creating generations of men who are inexperienced in dealing with them. Especially true when it comes to one’s emotional growth.
