      Just love, every day is a summer

      When summer is gone, when the seasons change, when the leaves wither, we just sigh for it all.
      When the cold stays, but brings summer, and your heart is dull, all you have to do is love—
      love your life, love the flowers, love the laughter, love the cheers; love the day, love the night, love Sunshine and rain;
      love the cold, love the breeze, love the city and the field; love the ocean, love the fire, love the world and be happy again.

      When love leaves or dies, there...

      The Romantic March to the Death of a Spoiled Child

      Blue is not only the warmest color, not only the color of freedom, but also represents a kind of extreme romance; from the realistic care of Abu D'Akshish's North African immigrant, to Chier's elevation of the French national spirit to the paradigm of philosophical thinking, Going back all the way, this colorful "Liu Mei Hua Jiao" is still a pure light blue in the bones.

             Jacques Demy's French musical, the iron-clad Catherine Deneuve, who competes with François Dorie, and the...

      1967 Les Demoiselles de Rochefort - Willows (France) (colour)

      1967 Les Demoiselles de Rochefort - Liu Mei Hua Jiao (France) (Colour)

      Today I would like to share the above nostalgic musical.

      When watching this movie, it reminds me of Singing In The Rain. Between the two, I still prefer Singing In The Rain.
      But I also like "Liu Mei Hua Jiao", which is a very typical nostalgic musical.
      Each action is clearly carefully crafted.
      Looking at the popular dance styles of the 1960s in France, I think of Hong Kong, the dancers...

      Feel free to watch movies

      I just watched a few of the director's musicals, the most famous "The Umbrella of Cherbourg", which made Catherine Deneuve popular. I watched this film because there were comments that many scenes in "La La Land" paid tribute to the film "Liu Mei Hua Jiao", and for a while I was very interested in the early acting career of the documentary director Jacques Behan , just found this film to watch. The whole film has the distinctive characteristics of the director. Colors are bright, clean...

      "Everyone has a forest of their own. Lost people are lost, and those who meet will meet again." Better than another "Umbrella of Cherbourg" by Jacques Demy. PS: My mother said by the side that French women have beautiful...

      Some people miss it, some people meet, and some people meet again. In a beautiful song and dance film, true love can always stay together, and people are also willing to enjoy this short-lived pleasure in the wonderful song, dance and music. The clothing style of this piece can even be regarded as a fashionable institutional temptation today....

      D9 There were such a pair of sisters in that innocent age. They taught their children to dance together to find love together. The beautiful colors and cute sisters and the lame lines were all so...

      The same is the musical film that Jacques Demy and Deneuve collaborated on, and I prefer Cherbourg. In this star-studded one, the coincidence setting is too deliberate, but fortunately, Deneuve and the painter met in the end, making up for Cherbourg's regret. Sweet and greasy color matching, a French coastal town full of love fantasy, all the elements of romanticism are pieced together. Speaking of Jacques Behan, I finally saw the works of my favorite old man when he was young, blond and...
