      the girl who combed her hair

      Well, I have to admit, I became obsessed with Iranian movies, and since then, many Hollywood movies have lost their charm and feel in my eyes.

          In this era when Western values ​​are rampant all over the world, we seem to be accustomed to the pictures brought to us by American film and television dramas, beautiful heroines, sexy and plump, and there must be one or two naked scenes; Kong Wuli, handsome and tall male protagonist , will also have an exciting love with the heroine,...

                            ——A brief analysis of the love of a boy to a girl in love movies In

      literary and artistic works, the emotional development of a girl is often used as the main line to describe a love, because people's mindset is often limited to a girl's love, and they feel that a girl's emotions are rich, delicate, and delicate. It is easier to convey the essence of the work. In fact, this view is biased....

      flowers blooming in dust

        Why do people in that land have such eyes? I
        remember seeing a picture of an Israeli soldier kissing his girl in Tang Shizeng's book. The exquisite profile and the length of the eyelashes are shocking. Maybe the longer the misery, the longer the length of the eyelashes will be. Of course, I can't really understand. This viewing is powerless. Like Latif watching from a distance, he saw his beloved girl fall into the icy river.
        Knowing in advance that Barron is silent, I...

      Author / Bow Long Fire Sheep

      The movie I watched tonight is called "Barron", the long-lost Maggie McGiddy, Iran is an ordinary but clean grass in his hands, this grass is like all or precious or humble It grows like a flower, healthy, tenacious, kind and bright.

      As always, the Iranian-style still water flows deep, and Majidi also pays attention to the bottom from a leftist perspective as always. There are typical characters and atypical characters in typical environments. "Just because I looked at you more in the crowd, I can't forget your face again." , Silent love, and even abandoning the identity (certificate) is not a pity, the future is still unknown, and survival will not necessarily improve, but no matter how difficult the environment is, it can...

      The protagonist is somewhat comical. But the love at first sight that the film depicts because of guilt and pity is a bit silly and incomprehensible. Isn't this an insult to the refugee...

      I was moved by Latif's selfless and unrequited love for his beloved Barron (he ran hard and even gave his savings to save Barron from being caught...), while earlier "Rama robbed his original The 180-degree attitude change of "his job" and later "discovering that he is actually a girl" is also quite cute and interesting... I sincerely hope that those poor people can have job security and live a good life, and the national government can provide them with better...

      The male protagonist is so great and innocent. This kind of silent crush on the female protagonist, pity and selflessness, even sacrificing his own help, has never been seen in his life. Love to this level is simply saint level. In addition, I was thinking of helping so much behind the scenes, why are they all under the guise of other names? It's a pity he didn't confess. After the heroine returned to Afghanistan, she never had the chance to see him again. How can the male protagonist survive...
