“The NeverEnding Story” presents There’s nothing like a raging storm, because film is a visual medium and the “invisible power that consumes everything” isn’t exactly translated on screen. The storm picture is perfect as it captures its inevitable power. Those who live in the world of Fantasia appear generally happy and cheerful but eventually realize that they cannot live to the fullest, as the constant threat of Nothing Can Take them has cast a shadow over them all. . There’s a sense of dread looming around every corner, and it’s even inspired some characters, like Rockbiter, to feel as though life isn’t worth living.
Like the Swamp of Sorrow, Nothing serves as a metaphor for both grief and depression. As Nothing continues to consume, it becomes increasingly difficult to resist the inevitable. All signs point to hopelessness and loss, and fighting to see another day seems like an impossibility. Nothing creeps into your consciousness like the way mental illness can, completely hijacking any rational thought and replacing it with depression. Nothing, like depression, is debilitating. Trying to fight Nothing (like trying to fight depression) feels unrealistic, because the only way to stop it is to capitalize on the very thing it destroys – hope, love, and wisdom. imagine. It sounds like being asked “haven’t you tried Not depressed? “
