There have been many different views on the film “What I want my words to do you” by Eve Ensler. As I watched the film many thoughts went running through my head.   At first I tried to connect myself with the different women and the different stories. Within the film I tried to gasp what was there real guilt towards the crime they have committed. Even though they didn’t or did what was there real reason behind it. Though they have and wrote all their feelings and express them in different ways I could really feel any guilt in their stories. All the stories in the film are supposed to have a relation to guilt.

What would be the real guilt behind everything I did? Would they as hurtful as theirs? As I did more research on the writer behind what the real reasons were for the film I got the sense that she wanted these women not to feel guilt. Not to feel guilt on what they did but to find the real reason why they did what they did. Just by finding the reasons why they did but to face it and admit that they had a good reason. The whole point of the tittle of the movie of what I want my words to do to you. The tittle is self-explanatory in my case. It’s not the women’s actions that speak loudly in the film, instead is their words. They express of what they want that other significance person to hear of feel. Feel the guilt they had for many years of them wondering and thinking of what they really are.
I tried to put connections of myself with them. It wasn’t easy...
