I had once loved stories like the Lion King, made in an iconic Disney movie, just to one day reminded by my brother that it is the story of an uncle harming his nephew and killing his brother.
These family intrigue stuffs are very much inspired from Shakespearean plays. From brothers that kill each other to children complot against the parents. My father has once told me that these are tumultuous degrading immoral stories. Funny isn't it? But it is true.
My father would prefer Leon Tolstoy with the grandiose stories like War and Peace. Tolstoy has once criticised Shakespeare for that, why so much on family disputes?
