      His grave was empty, but full of ghosts

      (Spoilers, beware)

      "There are eight million people in this city, eight million loneliness, and eight million ways to die."

      First time wanting to write something for a movie. as a small feeling.

      I refuse to call this a comment. (It's not really a comment, just to put some screenshots that I like.)

      I don't know where I heard about this movie, I haven't read the synopsis, and I...

      Still Life

      It's been a long time since I've seen a movie that appealed to me.

      Whether it's the film's beautiful framing, muted tones, or the soundtrack that flows slowly like a stream, and the well-timed long shots, I'm deeply attracted.

      An ordinary story, a great movie

      • I have never imagined that such a story could make such an attractive film to watch quietly. The whole process of the film is very clean, every shot is handled very well, and the film is supported by an actor!
      • Mei's last accidental death, like the elegant finale of a hedgehog, suddenly reminded me of the line "Are you ready for love?" in one of Leslie Cheung's songs. Is it sadness? Is it joy? Is it hope? then...

      Accidentally and cranky - a short thought on "Still Life"

      (This is not a good start to plan to win the Autumn Film Festival badge in 45 hours? Finished 1/8)

      Those who like to live in the past are those who truly respect life and fear life. But sometimes they get too nostalgic, and gradually derail from future realities. And those who yearn for the future often claim to be more alive, and some of them are at war with the sinking of the past due to extremeization. It can be found by weighing the above two...

      Probably no one will come to our funeral|

      I saw a movie last night called "A Silent Life", or it has a more straightforward translation, "Farewell without Attendance". With minimal cinematic language and restrained emotional expression, Uberto Pasolini speaks of the loneliness and death of modern man. It fits right in with the current pandemic, the death and its prelude—disease, the loneliness of isolation, and those...

      The simple scene of using old books to make sofa legs is like a father and a son. The four words are abruptly...

      I like this kind of gentle and gentle rhythm. It is not intense and does not grasp the horse. It is as plain as water, which makes my mood very calm. In fact, I am a little envious of John May. His kindness and meticulousness are in every bit, and he treats everyone kindly, especially the...

      150612 Taiyi Broadcasting. Before the last 10 minutes, I always thought this movie was too bland. A civil servant who is suspected of being a Virgo, is cautious and taciturn and is paralyzed. He finds a life that no one remembers for those who died alone, chooses music for TA funerals, writes eulogy, and finds relatives. It has been like a day for decades. Until his life changed; and he was learning to try a new life. However the end. However the end. But in the end, there are only them; fortuna

      If a person is lonely, he will pay a lot of attention to food. Canned bread, fish, cakes, ice cream and once again canned bread are shown many times in the film, and extreme loneliness...

    • Homeless Man: [about Lesley and Billy] You know, they never seemed to talk... They just sat there on a bench together... Well, that's what we all want, isn't it?... A woman to be quiet with.

    • Kelly Stoke: I was thinking next Friday after the service, maybe we could go somewhere for a cup of tea or chocolate... Just to, you know, just to, just to chat... If you have time, of course. If you...

      John May: Yes... Yes, I would like that very much... Just a cup of something.
