      The dedication of suspect Wu Zhizhen

         When watching "Fireworks in the Daytime", I will feel that Wu Zhizhen is too tolerant. Such a big thing, I put it in my heart, and such a big calculation is done by one person. If a woman can reach this point, no matter how big her heart is, nothing will fail. No matter how lucky you are, you can't just be a laundryman.
         In the movie, it is very simple to judge such a bitter and hated woman, just to see if she has an expression. A woman with something in her heart does not change...

      good movies don't change

      "Fireworks in the Day" is Diao Yinan's third feature film, but according to the regulations of some film awards, Diao Yinan is still eligible for the nomination of a new director. It doesn't sound like plausibility, but it's actually true. Although there are "Uniform" and "Night Train" ahead, "Fireworks in the Day" is the first work by Diao Yinan to be screened in mainland theaters. What's more, Diao Yinan is indeed an unfamiliar name to the vast majority of audiences and even movie...

      33 Movie Secrets That Movie Fans Will Make You Have To Love

      1. Let Taiwan's Xiaoqingqing Gui Lunmei play the Northeast woman, which is the result of the unanimous agreement of the filmmaker and the director.

      day fire

      Heaven and hell are no more than an instant. One second you thought you were stepping into the stairs of heaven full of hope, but you never thought that the next step would be the fire of the sun. Life and destiny are making you constantly make choices, even without giving you any time to think. Goodness is like water, and hydration is invisible. Only by constantly adapting to life, rather than letting life adapt to you, can we live full of nutrients. His body and soul can only perish bit by...

      I love so much. One, a grand poetic statement today. Second, the atmosphere is depressing and gloomy just right. The long shot of the tunnel and the great soundtrack make the atmosphere both sad and beautiful. Third, Liao Fan played a man who was dirty and smelly, full of desire, but romantic in his heart. His love for the heroine and his obsession with the case were driven by the same heart, so he was contradictory but not entangled, betrayed but loyal, Because life is just like that. Fourth,...

      Compared with the case itself, the literary and artistic film in the guise of a crime still focuses on emotions. It's as if the characters didn't really pay attention to the evolution of the case, and more entangled themselves. Fortunately, there are a few wonderful strokes in emotion, such as Liao Fan's flurry of dance. Diao Yinan's films are actually always about lonely people in the city, but the city in his films always looks like a small town 20 years ago, although this time it was Harbin....

      The atmosphere is so good, it's cold and depressing, it's a rare movie that lacks visual focus and still makes people interested in continuing to move forward. The key is that neurotic Liao Fan does a good job. This is a true literary film under the guise of criminal suspense. Every character is so romantic in his bones, and all kinds of wretchedness are for spiritual needs. Perverted enough and persistent...

This seems to follow the style of Diao Yinan in the past. The previous films "Uniform" and "Night Train" have a slower pace, and there are also classic long...
