How Would You Define the Kinds of Friendships You Have?

While Luca uses sea monsters and humans to show vast differences, in a way, it also uses them as a way to normalize people’s uniqueness. The people you encounter in your world will never be completely the same as you, and this is the main lesson we can gather from the movie.

Everyone was a monster to everyone. The humans thought the sea monsters were evil and gruesome. In the same way, the sea monsters thought the humans were built for destruction, too.

However, the truth is, humans and sea monsters are just different species. Just because one species is not the same as yours doesn’t automatically mean it’s evil. Our differences are only things that make us unique; they shouldn’t drive us apart.

Despite everything, Luca, Alberto, and Giulia formed a strong bond and friendship. Yes, Luca was a sea monster, and Alberto and Giulia were humans. But, they found a common interest that brought them together as friends!

Keep in mind that true friendship needs trust and genuine understanding to form. It doesn’t matter how different you are from each other, as long as you have each other’s best interests at heart!

Poetry, philosophy, history, and movies are all topics I love writing about! However, my true passion is in traveling, photography, and finding common ground to which everyone from different cultures can relate.

With the many places I’ve been to, I found that love, inspiration, and happiness are some things that bring people together. No matter how different we are on the outside, I’m a true believer that our emotions don’t lie; if you dig deep into our psyche, we’re all the same inside.

This belief was further amplified when I joined Quote Ambition. Through the quotes I’ve read, collected, organized, and written about, I found that humans are resilient, creative, and compassionate.

We take from each others’ hearts and courage, and it’s through our individual experiences that we learn how to rise above our challenges and pain. In so many ways, Quote Ambition is a platform that allows people from all over the world to gain the inspiration they need anytime, anywhere!
