    The play is based on the first part of the novel "The Neapolitan Quartet" by author Elena Ferrante , which tells the girlhood of two heroines, Lila and Elena. At the beginning of the story, Elena, who had already made a name for herself, received a call from Lila's son, Reno, saying that his mother had completely disappeared. Elena remembers Lila's prophecy of her own destiny, and she writes the story of their lives.   Lila and Elena grew up together in a dilapidated community in Naples. They have been inseparable since childhood. They trust each other, but they both see each other as their own hidden mirrors and wrestle secretly. Lila is smart and beautiful. She can confront the boys who bully her without fear, or she can go to the feared Archie? Karachi wants the toy he stole back; Elena admires Lila's learning talent and superhuman determination, and has been secretly imitating Lila. 
    The family did not support Lila to continue her studies, so she went to work in the shoe repair shop where her father and brother struggled to maintain, and faced the pursuit of several playboys. Elena continued her studies alone with love, jealousy and understanding for her friends, but she was unable to face the loss of competing with Lila. 
    Eventually, sixteen-year-old Lila decides to marry the butcher shop owner, but at the wedding reception, she discovers her husband's betrayal. And Elena is also standing at the entrance of the adult world, not only worried about the future, but also because she has a vague impression of the avant-garde Nino   .

      Two Lives Flower Crime and Punishment - A masterpiece delayed by the name

      This is a story about the growth and friendship of two girls. Seeing this bland introduction, and seeing the boring title of "My Genius Girlfriend", if you don't know its background, maybe no one is interested in opening it - except for straight men who love to watch Lala action movies .

      But once you understand its background and watch the first episode, you will fall in love with it, madly and unable to fall in love with it, as if plunged into the dusty town of Naples half a century...

      After watching "My Gifted Girlfriend": Sense of Destiny

      Watching the film and television adaptation, something suddenly deepened in my mind

      1. The fate of Lila and Lenon was formed very early, and it was not only Lenon's unilateral following, but also the violent and chaotic Naples that catalyzed the gathering and common struggle of two girls with resistance in their bones. .

      2. Ferrante's intention to take Naples, which was violent and poor after the war as the background, is more obvious and shocking through the performance of film...

      The Dynamic Balance of Girls' Friendship - Jealousy

      When I read "My Gifted Girlfriend" last year, I wanted to write an article about it.

      I remember the unfinished article, the first sentence was - if it were to be turned into a film and television drama, I would also look forward to it with my life!

      Achieved.

      Waiting for a long time, I waited until the launch of "My Gifted Girlfriend", one of the...

      What is more difficult to overcome than common people's identity is inferiority complex

      After watching a few episodes of the TV series, I just finished watching the "Naples Four Parts" in one go. This film review contains spoilers, and even the content of the next few episodes, so be careful.

      "Do you know what the common people are?" "Yes, teacher." We are the common people, and the common people are fighting over food and wine, arguing about the order of serving, the quality of service, and that dirty floor— The waiters are walking...

      In the eyes of Italian women, men are old

      The women in "My Brilliant Girlfriend" are not easy to mess with.

      In the classroom, there is a random test, and the female teacher specially instructs the girls to give the boys some color.

      After school, Lila was retaliated by the boys and threw a stone back, even if she broke her head, she would not let go.

      The friend was threatened by Marcello, and she put the knife directly on the other's...

      "Jealousy and calculation often appear in women's friendships, not because girls are inherently mean, but because they have long found that there is no chance of winning against men in their cruel existence. Only by crushing the same sex despicably can they grab a little pitiful profit." This drama is better than the original, the boundary of fireworks disappears, the teacher changes, the last episode Lila said to Elena, you must read and keep reading, it is a kind of you struggling for me, You...

    "My Brilliant Girlfriend" tells the childhood and boyhood of the best friends Lila and Elena. The story begins with friendship, and depicts the subtle changes in women's friendship - their mutual support, jealousy, and suspicion, but never more than that. They are constantly expanding outward, plasticizing themselves in the temptation to the outside world.
