Communication Isn’t About Words

I finally watched Wall-E today. It was a good movie, but I’m not going to write about the plot or review it or anything like that.

What I do want to say about it is something that struck me while I was watching it. Wall-E is more or less a non-talking robot. Throughout the whole movie, it only says two words (it repeats the same words quite a lot, though).

But despite that, the movie still portrays the emotions of Wall-E well. Purely through its actions, the robot Wall-E carries the plot well enough, and it displays its emotions and thoughts.

Communication isn’t just about words. In fact, at times, it’s not about words at all – your message can get across just as (if not more) effectively by what you do and who you are.
