Trailer and Insight into The Fisher King Film (Background for this film)

In the film The Fisher King,  Robin Williams played a homeless man whose life as an academic was destroyed when his mind snapped after witnessing the brutal murder of his wife.

As a mentally ill homeless man who fancies himself a modern-day knight searching for the Holy Grail, his fervent wish of compassion for the homeless merges clearly merges with his off-screen legacy.

Not only did he raise nearly $70 million with friends for the homeless, but he also testified to Congress on the topic.

To understand the context of the film, The Fisher King, here is a modified trailer/spoiler.
The film took a difficult subject and made it delightful and inspiring!

During the making of this film there is one particular scene where Robin was extra-ordinarily passionate.    He literally was ripping his heart out to produce this scene below.
