Disconnect is a drama about four different people for whom internet changed their lives.
The movie show how can weakness be source of manipulation. The world is so BAD and there is always somebody who will do evil. Human wickedness and stupidity is enormous !! I will talk about this pour boy because that something that I know.
There is Ben, a lonely boy. Nobody understand him and he feel like misunderstood by the world and even more by his dad. He has to face the wickedness of the children of his school. This is a very current topic. At school, there is always a leader and a victim. In France, we talk a lot about this problem : the wickedness between children. Ben remember me something that happens in my entourage. My best friend’s mum lost one of her children in very similar condition. I knew him, well i thought… Few years ago, when he was alive, we use to spent a lot of time together in Colombia. He and his brothers was like my family. One day he began to be a little more remote and laugh less but nobody pay attention because he used to be shy. I don’t know how it really happens…. I was not here, i was in Paris when my told me that he killed him self… He spent a lot of time on internet and apparently he used to go on strange chats. He was talking to some fanatics; people who was making part of a sect or something like that and changed his way of thinking… He did like in the movie…. He hanged himself on the balcony when Maria Isabella (his mother) was out and when she came back she saw him from the street ….. His family : father, mother and other two brother will never cover that…. That was terrible… He must be really desperate to do that. What did they say to him ??? How can people do that ??
There is such a dark side in internet !! People do not know enough that. The cyberspace is VERY VERY unwholesome !! Nobody is protected from the internet damage. People have to know that is not the real world. There are a lot of problems in the cyberspace : look how our world is going ? for exemple, how can terrorist can use internet to disseminate their propaganda ? Everybody body can see what they do ! Isn’t it terrible ? Almost everything on internet is unwholesome that why we need to learn how to use it in the correct way !! And don’t be stupide, you can not know somebody in this virtual world. You don’t know who is the other side of the computer ! I don’t know if your mum said that to you but : DON’T TRUST AND DO NOT TALK TO STRANGERS ! Do not discuss about your personal life.
You have to trust you and be smarter than this people … Real life is outside. There is such perversity on internet.
