      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....

      A piece of disappointment. Katherine Hepburn's performance is too much. This kind of performance is appropriate and wonderful in the long day before night, and it is terrible in this film - a yacht passing by She was surprised that she would be played by her old man as if she had hit a ghost in the daytime... David Lean's shot composition was not ideal, and the insertion of empty shots in many places was very abrupt. In terms of storytelling, it was also lacking in sharpness. Only The...

      What a beautiful love scene, a place I really want to go, Miss Hutison, do you know that I was as lonely as you when you fell into the water, such an unforgettable summer time, a beautiful encounter may be a short-lived flashy love, It is as bright as summer but will eventually disappear. But it doesn't matter, people from two worlds are lucky enough to meet, isn't it? (I marked it in 2011, and successfully checked in Venice in the summer of 2018, which became the last unforgettable summer...
