Movie Review : Titanic
By Zalfaa Azalia Pursita
Titanic is a 1997 American epic romance-disaster film  that directed, written, co-produced and co-edited by James Cameron. A fictionalized account of the sinking Titanic, it stars Leonardo DiCaprio (who plays Jack Dawson) and Kate Winslet (who plays  Rose DeWitt Bukater) as members of different social classes who fall in love abroad the ship during its ill-fated maiden voyage.
After winning a trip on the RMS Titanic during a dockside card game, Jack Dawson noticed the society girl named Rose DeWitt Bukater who is on her way to Philadelphia to marry her rich snob fiancé Caledon Hockley. Rose was suppose to marry her mother's pick of a fine gentlemen Cal Hockley, who was only attracted to Rose by her beauty and family fortune. Rose however felt she was in a crowded room screaming for help with no one to hear. Jack did hear her, with someone to finally listen, Rose couldn't deny her feelings for Jack anymore. Their love came to a new level, when Rose asked Jack to draw her like one of his "french girls" wearing only the rarest diamond, the Heart of the Ocean. A romantic love affair between Jack and Rose couldn't be denied and Cal became jealous of Jack and searching for a way to compromise Rose's love for Jack. Unfortunately Cal finds out and has Jack locked away. Soon afterwards, the ship hits an iceberg and Rose must find Jack while both must run from Cal even as the ship sinks deeper into the freezing water. As the ship lowers itself into the depths of the ocean, Jack and Rose must fight death of the freezing water and await a rescue ship.
For me, Titanic is the movie which really made me respect James Cameron as a film maker. In the movie, he offers excellent and believeable characters, stunning visuals and a compelling story. The ending of the story when every night old Rose in her dream, she saw Jack, it really touches my deep heart.
To sum up, this is sweet, sad, happy, and incredible at the same time story. Such as an extraordinary film that I ever saw.  I think, you will be glad and feel the power of their love when you able to watch it.
