      2 people's rural life

      Ada lives alone on a large farm after her lover's father's death in the war. The idyllic desolate country has no food and relies on selling and other people to help her to live. Sitting alone in the desolate front desk, even a big cock can bully her.
      Ruby inserted herself into her life involuntarily, crushed the head of the rooster with one hand, and then began to arrange various tasks without any hesitation, which were all basic tasks: cutting grass in the fields, going to buy seeds and...

      you're the place i headed

      "You're the place i headed."
           As Inman said, the belief that kept him on the road was just because of Ada in front of him. Through thousands of mountains, through thousands of waters, through all the hardships and hardships, I just want to go home, for you.
         Cold Mountain, the movie is just like its name, pressing down on my heart like a black mountain, so cold and desolate. The ruthlessness of war, life is so fragile and powerless in front of it. In the movie, you...

      A light story, a light wound

      I was lucky enough to watch this film when it was almost 6 years after its release. It can be a sin for fans of fake movies.
         After watching this film, I was troubled by a faint thought. Perhaps war and love are always pursued and never tire of topics. For me, there are always some extravagances - it turns out that war is so cruel, and love makes people's beliefs so firm. Jude Law has the heaviest role in the play, but his performance looks so natural and complements the plot of the...

      cold mountain

      "Cold Mountain" is also a war movie, but it is far less shocking than "Flying Taiji Flag"! In "Cold" I saw the sea of ​​blood, in "Too" I saw the intestines... The theme of "Cold" is love, and the theme of "Too" is family affection
      . "Cold Mountain" is actually not ugly, war is cruel, So war movies are also cruel, their love is also very high-end, Nicole even "I do not know you", she fell in love with that man, so wait, wait, wait, finally get together, but parting, the real tragedy!...

      Before watching Cold Mountain, I never thought it would be such a story; after watching it, I didn't even think it should be Cold Mountain. About love that travels long distances, hey hey hey. I do not know. Such a long film, I traveled for two days to watch it, and I was very tired. So happy, happy and tired bird~~ Unfortunately, it is a tragedy. . ....

    Movie quotes

    • Bosie: By order of Zebulon Vance, Governor of this great state of North Carolina: any soldier turned deserter is guilty of treason and shall be hunted down like a dog. Any man takes in a deserter is likewise guilty of treason.

    • Bosie: King of Kings!

    • Inman: Come out of there.

      Bosie: No, sir. Here's fine.

      Inman: I'll just have to shoot the horse from under you.

      Bosie: Shoot her. She's not mine. You riding Mr. Teague's animal?

      Inman: I am.

      Bosie: He dead?

      Inman: I hope so. Look, how old are you? Give me your gun and ride home, I'm done fighting. I'm sick of it.

      Bosie: I give you my gun and you'll shoot me dead.

      Inman: I will not shoot you, but nor am I walking down that mountain looking over my shoulder for you.

      Bosie: That's what you call a conundrum. I tell you what I've got on my side.

      Inman: What have you got on your side?

      Bosie: The confidence of youth.
