    [Wu Da] Before watching this film, you should watch "Amelie" first to understand the director's characteristics and the heroine's style, otherwise it will be difficult to understand some of the narrative styles of this film, such as the director's precise description of the time and the capture of detailed shots . In addition, you can also take a look at "Two Little No Guess", whose heroine is the outstanding prostitute in this film. Without understanding this, it is difficult to understand the implication of the first sentence she said to the heroine in prison.

    The opening and ending are really moving, and the yellowing rhythm is sometimes mixed with the cruelty of war. The protagonist always uses everyday time to predict the outcome, as well as the rigid wit of the French. But overall, it's pretty general, and it took me several times to read it. PS: Audrey really looks like Cecilia Cheung when she smiles, the male lead and the dimples on his face are really handsome.

  • Narrator: Mathilde leans back against her chair, folds her hands in her lap, and looks at him. In the sweetness of the air, in the light of the garden, Mathilde looks at him. She looks at him... She looks at him...

  • Sylvain: [after the mailman rides his bike into the house] Make yourself at home! At Christmas, come down the chimney!
