The Lake House

Posted on: August 4, 2006

Time cannot separate this two in the movie, The Lake House.

Kate Forster (Sandra Bullock) lives in a glass house built on stilts over a lake north of Chicago. She is moving out and leaves a note for the next tenant, in the mailbox. Oddly enough, the letter went back 2 years in time to the first tenant of The Lake House, Alex Wyler (Keanu Reeves). Kate lives in 2006 and Alex in 2004. The story then revolves around their correspondence of disbelief, comfort and love.

This is the Hollywood remake of Korean movie, Il Mare. It’s a illogical but emotional movie. Many of us might not understand it at the beginning, but will come to appreciate it towards the end. I would say Hollywood kept most of the story and made slight changes however kept the idea intact. It is a movie that leaves a lot for self imagination.

The movie actually brought about fate and time. Seems that the two characters have so many links with each other, never knew each other but got together at the end. Alex was so patient in order to be together with Kate. Time really tests the love. So what’s time compared to true love?
