Prompt 2

The Hand in the movie can be seen as an authoritative figure who wants to take control and commands the main character to make “the hand” but the main character is pushing it away and trying to be happy with what he is doing which is making a flowerpot. I think the film was seen as subversive by the communist government at the time because of the main character who tries to be independent and do what he wants and refuses to do what “the Hand” commands him to do and when the hand finally takes control, the main character is shown as a puppet that can represent or portray how the people in the country might be feeling with the government at the time. The main character constantly pushes and refuses the hand which can be taken as a sign of defying authority.
