From watching the movie, I think that Chance represented God or some type of heavenly body.
The way everyone felt good about themselves when he was around and the pure innocence he possessed shows that he was full of good intentions.
I think that by reading the book, you can understand the story better and by watching the movie you can enjoy the story better.
Read one of the following novels and then watch the film versions adapted from the novel.
Chance was even there when Ben died, which I think shows that God was with him to make him feel comfortable when his time was up.
At Ben's funeral, Chance is shown wandering around the woods and then he walks on water. In the book, Chance is given some human qualities such as having the ability to think and feel for something.The only problem with the movie is that you don't know what is going through Chance's mind and his background information.The movie does help make some things clearer by seeing it, instead of just picturing it in your mind.In the movie, the only time we find out what Chance thinks of television is when he is talking to someone else.It seems as if Chance represents a God-like character in the movie, but he is given some human qualities in the book.Being There: Comparison of Book and Movie The book, "Being There," is about a man named Chance, who is forced to move out of the house he lived in his whole life and his experience in the outside world.Based on the success of the book, the movie, "Being There," was made.The added scenes in the movie helps to put some humor into the story and make it more entertaining.By just watching the movie, some people could be confused if they don't know some background on Chance.Since we can only see Chance's actions in the movie, Chance appears to be even more innocent and clueless than in the book.For example, in the beginning of the book, Chance is working on the garden and the narrator explains Chance's feelings on the garden.
