      happiness is an ability

      I have seen Heidi and Grandpa once before, and I am not particularly impressed.

      This time I saw Heidi of Xiulan Temple, maybe because I started to write the aftermath, I would be more engaged when I watched it, and I could remember the plot better.

      You really can’t read other movie reviews before writing your own review. You will directly accept other people’s opinions without the process of self-thinking. People’s inertia is getting worse and worse again and again, too lazy to...

      May every child be safe and happy

      This winter, I have heard too much bad news, some of which make people feel out of anger, and then suspect the bottom line of human nature to do evil;

      It is true that there are sorrows and joys, every year, people are on the road, and they also come to the end of the year without knowing it. The calendar is about to turn to the new year. Even if we are cruel and powerless against reality, we are...

      A real cartoon without any intentions

      Even the live action feels more moving than most cartoons. No reason, just pure joy.

      The director has a very good grasp of the attributes of the film type, how longing for a clean mind can have such a work.

      It is recommended that people of any age should take a look, put down all baggage, and just look at it.

      After watching the movie, I wanted to check the social background at that time to be able to shoot such a clean work. After hesitating again and again, I gave...

      Gone: The youngest age to win the Oscars

      Shirley Temple died at her home in California on February 10, 2014, at the age of 85. After a day or two, I learned this news from the news, which made a sentimental + nostalgic person not feel sad. For the elderly Temple, not many people pay attention to her. If you put her in front of the world , and there will not be many feelings, because everyone left the angel-like favor in her childhood, and only childhood. At only 7 years old, she won the 7th Academy Award. She is the first...

      classic narrative cycle

      When I first turned on the CCTV music channel, what I saw was a chubby, small, yellow curly-haired, energetic and healthy little girl, sitting on the train with her aunt DITI to the city .
      At the other end, Clara, an aristocratic girl, was sitting at the dining table, frowning under the supervision of the strict and demanding housekeeper, looking forward to the arrival of her new partner. She looked very unhealthy. After her mother died, the duke's father was not around, and the widowed...

      Adolph Kramer, The Grandfather: Younger.

      Heidi: "... and the younger of them said to his father, ''Father, give me the P-O-R... '" These are pretty hard words. Perhaps you'd better help me.

      Adolph Kramer, The Grandfather: "'Give me the portion of goods that fall unto me.' And he divided unto them his levy, and the younger son gathered all together and took his journey into a far country

      Heidi: You know this story by heart.

      Adolph Kramer, The Grandfather: Yes, by heart.

      Heidi: Does the son ever go home to his father?

      Adolph Kramer, The Grandfather: "And the son said, 'Father, I have sinned against Heaven and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.' But the father said to his servants, 'Bring forth the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and shoes on his feet for this, my son, was dead and is alive again. He was lost and is found.'"

      [Heidi and her grandfather enter the church. Pastor Schultz pauses]

      Blind Anna: Peter, what is it?
