She has not returned, but she can sense the hot attention of the hero, and she takes it with her in a panic.

      If the fake can do the same as the real, why consider it fake?

      Looking at travel posts, Rome always mentions "Roman Holiday", and tourists must go to the Spanish Steps where Audrey Hepburn went to sit and eat ice cream. I can't help but think of another Hepburn movie set in Venice, another famous Italian city: "SUMMERTIME" (Sunny Day/Summer Time/Spring Heart to Rhododendron), I like the translation of "Sunny Day" the most, although the Chinese movie of the same name has Many, mostly Hong Kong films. Compared with "Roman Holiday", "Sunny Day" contrasts...

      "Summertime": A Kind of Love Tragedy

      The great director David Lean has made two films about middle-aged love tragedies, one is "Meet and Hate" in 1945, and the other is "Summer Time" in 1954. The former is extremely famous, and the latter are not so famous. However, in my opinion, "Summertime" is also a profound love tragedy.
      It is said that the relationship between each person and the other half of his life is like an apple divided into two halves, and only when the two halves are put together can they bite tightly....

      sunny day

      Today is October 15, 2017, and it has been two months since I came to Hangzhou. It's raining outside again and I want to go out to buy shoes. Go take the subway to see the crowd in the subway, and if you are lucky, you can still sit. After the subway took my body to a certain station, I got off and walked a short distance to the shoe store. After walking around, I didn’t buy any shoes, and then I took the subway back again. I looked at the people around me with a little anxiety....

      3.5 stars, Italy is really a healing place, every lonely and frustrated woman hopes to be rescued in Italy, not to mention that this film has such a beautiful scenery of Venice, David Lean still has a soft spot for extramarital affairs and trains. One very important thing when watching this film is the hint of color, K. Hepburn's red dress to white dress, red wine glass, and the white gardenia, showing the heroine's character and desire...

      Rationalists expressed too much sentimentality to be embarrassed to see, perhaps Kathleen Hepburn was acting too hard. Why does the heroine often cry and get angry? Brave bachelorettes should be calm and comfortable, otherwise they will feel traumatized and easily lead to fraud. How much David Lian loves the combination of trains and extramarital affairs! Travel souvenirs (glasses) are swindled for money, so...

    Movie plot

    Jane, an American, traveled abroad for the first time on vacation. She came to Venice in The Republic of Italy and lived in a small hotel. She felt lonely when she was alone. She was sitting alone on the terrace in San Marco Square, holding a camera and trying to take some pictures, but she could see all the couples who were affectionate and me, and her heart was quite unpleasant. At this time, she found that a man Reynardo was...
