A Parable Without a Message

A man and a woman sat at an outdoor cafe. They discussed social issues. They disagreed.

Later they went to see an old movie which was playing down the street. The both enjoyed the film.

"When we talk about politics," the woman said, "we can find little in common, but when it comes to old movies, we are of one mind."

"That's because movies are a shadowy reflection of life, whereas politics is life."

"That's not true, politics is just a small part of life, while film can show so much more."

"I guess we don't agree about movies as much as we thought!"
