      author eats people

      Cough cough! Before introducing this work, I would like to briefly describe the concept of authorship. The so-called author theory, simply put, is a theory that pays more attention to the author than the work. In this theoretical framework, the work has no independent status, and all are subordinate to the author. The status of a work is entirely assigned by the author, and the quality of the work is largely determined by whether or not the author's style is preserved. The above is the basic...

      Small thoughts

      A masterpiece of criticism of militaristic warfare! Especially did not expect that the death of the father, sister, brother, and sister turned out to be all the real experiences of the original author. The nuclear explosion gave people a suffocating feeling, death... pain... torture... parting. The whole film just wants to tell you to live. ——The dividing line—— There is a sentence in the original play, "The government does not care about the tragedy of Hiroshima" The military government...

      Although it also shows the suffering of the Japanese people in the late World War II, "Barefoot Kid" is more anti-war than "Grave of Fireflies", whether it is the father's criticism of the Japanese government and the war it launched, or the mother after Japan surrendered. The resentment that should have surrendered long ago clearly expresses the author's views on militarism. But after taking off the anti-war shell, this is actually a Japanese scarred movie. A Yuan can not help but remind me of...

    Movie quotes

    • Kimie Nakaoka: Tokyo, Yokohama, Nagoya, Osaka, they've come against all the biggest cities and bombed them into ruins. It's serious, Gen, I won't have you making light of it.

      Daikichi Nakaoka: There's one thing that bothers me. It's like you said, every major city around us has been bombed over and over again. But never Hiroshima.

    • Doctor: Slow down boys, slow down, I'll die of a heart attack before we get there.

      Gen Nakaoka: You should've thought of that before you got so fat.

      Shinji Nakaoka: Our mother's sick, and if you don't make her better, you'll be sorry.

    • Daikichi Nakaoka: This war can't be right. But it's only the cowards like me who dare say it. If there were only a few more like us. You know, sometimes it takes more courage not to fight than to fight, to not want to kill when all around you are calling out for blood. That's real courage in my book. If you boys remember nothing else I teach you, I hope you'll remember that.
