Tears in Rain

Tears in Rain

The last breaths of a person’s life are probably the most weighted moments of his/her entire life.

The scene you are about to watch is from movie Blade Runner, directed by Ridley Scott. It is based on a short story by Philip K. Dick named “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?“. This movie is one of my all time favorites and it kept me glued to the screen till the last scene.

Speaking of the last scene, the scene embedded below is definitely the climax of entire movie. In this scene, Roy Batty (played by Rutger Hauer) who is being hunted down throughout the movie by officer Rick Deckard (played by Harrison Ford), saves the life of Rick Deckard and then recalls his remarkable short life experiences before he takes his final breath.

In few short sentences, Roy Batty speaks out about what he had gone through and most importantly, what will become of his life experiences once he die.

I say this without a doubt that this scene is my most favorite movie in any movie I have ever watched. It punches right on the heart and makes you think what will become of your life experiences once you depart from this world.

Watch this scene and I highly recommend you to watch movie Blade Runner as it is regard as one of the best science fiction movies ever made.

    I did watch this before here Hammad … most odd that I would not have left a comment!

    I’ve worked in hospice care for years and we usually live as we die, nothing quite so dramatic. People often have a vision of loved ones, pets or jesus or muhammad coming to accompany them on the journey. A bit like the white dove symbolizing his spirit leaving in the film clip.

    Very thought provoking, thanks for the link!

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts, Kate.
      As for what is shown in this scene, yes there’s certainly no drama in the last moments of a person’s life. Whatever that soon-to-be departed soul is witnessing in those moments, just can’t be described in words. But I somehow feel connected with this thought about whatever I’ve done in my life, no matter how big or small, will fade away as soon as I take my last breath.

      no I believe both the good and bad are imprinted on our souls and follow us wherever we go Hammad … we can ‘cleanse’ the bad if we develop sincere regret and try not to do it again … otherwise that imprint is made

      You are exactly right, Kate. Cleansing of mind, heart and soul is certainly done on regular basis. This ensures a peaceful transition to the next chapter, when this worldly one finishes up.
