127 HoursOct 29, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Oscar winning director Danny Boyle seems to be a bit too realistic while making a movie. Although he is always acclaimed for his efforts many a time it yields to unpleasant results. The latest news he created was during the screening of his upcoming film “127 hours”. The realistic and rather inhuman picturization of a real life incident of US mountaineer, Aron Ralston, who had to chop of his hands with his pen knife during an expedition was rather brutal. This made many viewers collapse during the screening of the film.

The film “127 Hours” is based on the real life incident of Aron Ralston, whose hands were stuck under a boulder when he slipped into a canyon, during his expedition in Utah. He desperately tried to free his arms for almost five days, which counted to about 127 hours. To make matters worse, he neither had a mobile phone for communication, nor food and water for his survival. His condition got so worse that he even had to survive on his urine to quench his thirst. That is when he decided to chop off his hands with his penknife as a last resort for staying alive. The incident that happened in real life was brutal enough, but the way in which the whole scene has been portrayed in the movie, made many people faint.

“127 Hours” stars James Franco, who had a hard time portraying the role and relating to the pain that Aron Ralston was going through. Director Danny Boyle however says that although his step was merciless, but anyone else who had been on his shoes would have done the same. He said that he had no motive of scaring people, the only message that he wanted to give through the movie, is never lose hope.
