      Two of the most beautiful things in the world, one is kindness and the other is reading.

      Although there is no strong storyline, it makes people intoxicated and bathes the soul for an hour and a half. Often the ordinary little people dishes are the most moving. The male protagonist, who lacked love since childhood and was hated and ridiculed by his classmates, teachers and mothers, had a childlike kindness and always used his own less clever words to try to comfort those he thought was hurt. Named the 19 pigeons in the square. Although they don't read books,...

      Day and night will not communicate with each other

      Our poet said that a good novel builds a world, what kind of world? People are willing to live in, they can live poetically. A world with Margaret is undoubtedly such a world. Live in, think about it, Marguerite is reading in the beautiful sunshine, or Germain is grinding her cane in the gentle arms, it should be moved. This ninety-five-year-old being with the same name as the pigeon, shouting from the roaring car that you are kidnapping, was joyous and brilliant. Someday, still fat...

      female love

      I believe that there is no mother who does not love her child, but not every mother can show it in a proper way and in a timely manner. I
      feel that most of the bad things that Mann's mother has done to him are mostly the disgust and hatred of himself in the past, the helplessness and worry of no one. To love her seriously, she doesn't get the love and help she deserves from her husband, and a single, violent, struggling mother, who
      happens to have an unpleasant, stupid son. Her...

      scar life

      What I want to say is about family.

      Germain, he was fat, a little dull, uneducated but always trying to show off in front of his friends, sometimes saying inappropriate things regardless of the occasion.
      Germain's mother, irritable and paranoid, indulged in alcohol when she was young, and never changed her mind when she had a child.

      In Germain's childhood, 99% was an irritable and often hurtful mother, who only blamed for wrongdoing, and was scolded for no reason...

      Pulse warmth

      Such a warm film has a little bitterness, but it is still beautiful in the end. A life changed by reading is like opening a window to let in sunlight. There are no ups and downs in the plot, but I was moved all the way. In the world of love, there is not only love. Timeless and soft.

      I especially like German's little girlfriend, a very sunny girl. She doesn't seem to be worthy of her appearance when she is with German, but she doesn't think there is anything. She keeps guarding him...

      Four and a half stars; I really read it in the afternoon winter sunshine; "One day I will wailing like a dog in front of my mother's grave", the big nose interprets the rude and immature man who yearns for a warm mother's love very well and vividly, Margaret It is the perfect mother image in his heart, an ordinary and wonderful encounter, the so-called "love" is not only love; books are not only the most important props of the whole film, but also allow him to open another...

      In an 82-minute movie, you can still give up a large part of the time to the book, which is the luxury of the...

      The chance encounter on the park bench made the two people have such a warm friendship~ I like the last paragraph of the film left on the road: "This is not a typical love story but love and warmth are there. She lives her life in the name of flowers They are all wandering in the text, adjectives are surrounded by Zhou verbs, and they grow like wild grass, which makes you unhappy, but she gently implanted my hard board land and my heart" PS: Among them Camus' "The...

      It's not just love in stories about love. Two unrelated people met on an ordinary afternoon. They opened another door to each other's world through reading. (In memory of the first movie I watched with Miss...

      "One day I will howl like an abandoned dingo at my mother's grave" This part is so tearful. Gisèle Casadesus is such a beautiful and gentle old...

    Movie quotes

    • Germain Chazes: It's not a typical love affair, but love and tenderness, both are there. Named after a daisy, she lived amongst words, surrounded by adjectives in green fields of verbs. Some force you yield to. But she, with soft art, passed through my hard shield and into my heart. Not always are love stories just made of love. Sometimes love is not named but it's love just the same. This is not a typical love affair I met her on a bench in my local square. She made a little stir, tiny like a bird with her gentle feathers. She was surrounded by words, some as common as myself. She gave me books, two or three Their pages have come alive for me. Don't die now, you've still got time, just wait It's not the hour, my little flower Give me some more of you. More of the life in you Wait Not always are stories just made of love Sometimes love is not named. But it's love just the same.
