      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...

      The same musical, the European aura is completely different from that of the United States. In 1960, American musicals had not yet left the set in the studio, and the openness of natural scenes and the bright light used by Varda were even more moving. The flexible long shots and scene scheduling are completely different from the song and dance segments of the Broadway group dance style, and the use of fresh, bright and fashionable colors and fashion design. The gentle and delicate plot...

      The pinnacle of Jacques Demy's film aesthetics, the popular story of "No Coincidence is a Book" and "A Lover Becomes a Families" with beautiful color schemes, soundtracks, dances, and scene scheduling, as well as the blooming Deneuve sisters, young Jacques Behan and Kim Kelly, who speaks and sings in French, have their lines from time to time citing classics and naughty...

      At the end, the two spare tires connected the rival to the car... For someone like me who is always dumped, it is definitely not a happy ending. Jacques Demi's use of colors is great, and the clothing design is also excellent. Every piece I want to buy it for my girlfriend, but I don't have a girlfriend. It seems that being single for a long time will indeed cause...
