      The war took my pain

      A little bit of rambling nonsense, and I don’t know much about writing movie reviews, but after watching the movie, there is always something I want to say.

      I have always been very resistant to war-related documentaries. When Peter Jackson added color to the black-and-white images of that year and showed them to the audience again, the sense of alienation and unreality brought by the black-and-white film itself due to the difference of the ages was completely dissipated, and the power...

      The victory of imaging technology

      Another documentary that took a long time to watch and was a little disappointed after watching it

      The film takes World War I as the background, so that we can truly feel the real state of people in the early 20th century. They are no longer dull and clumsy due to the limitations of photography technology in black and white images. They have finally been restored to their real appearance in history. , this restoration technology blurs the boundary between historical documentaries and...

      They don't get old anymore

      Movie: "They Don't Grow Old Anymore" UK

      This is a war documentary filmed to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the victory of the First World War. The content is full of real pictures taken during the war at that time. Through the form of the survivors who participated in the war, it leads the audience into the crazy battlefield.

      At first I thought it was a war movie, but when I looked back, I realized that all the clips were real pictures, not post-production. I kept seeing...

      100th anniversary of World War I

      November 11, 1918, is a documentary film commemorating the past 100th anniversary of the First World War.

      After reading those old black and white photos, I realized what war is. There are many people who sing praises of war, whether it is provocative anti-war hymns, for them at that time, war life was as trivial and real as firewood, rice, oil and salt after marriage, and all our idealistic declarations today seem so pale and powerless. , For those of us who have not experienced war,...

      The advantage of watching at home is that you can make excerpts while watching.

      At the beginning, I said that a lot of young people want to get rid of boring jobs and join the army actively. The standard of 19 years old can't stop 141516-year-old children.

      After more than 20 minutes, the black and white data was colored, and the money was spent on repairing the most important image data. I also started excerpting the conversations of the veterans.

      It doesn't matter if you stay with the corpse, maybe it will be my turn in a few days. Rats are nasty animals...

      Their faces are no longer getting old, but their voices are only vicissitudes. Although it is still the mode of oral history, it completely restores the whole (psychological) process from enlistment to return from a first-person perspective, and when technology makes the image come alive, people who have not experienced it can finally immerse in it and experience it. Even if one ten millionth of their unspeakable fear, courage, cruelty, and blood, will not be as indifferent as those who did not...

      It's very good. It is said that the Beijing Film Festival is on. You must watch the final pj production special. It's too honest to talk about how he cut a 99-minute film from 600 hours of veteran interviews and 100 hours of documentaries, dealing with color, speed, shaking, sound effects, and music. Although He said that he wanted to be a mundane soldier in World War I (how to make tea, how to shave, how to poop, etc.) but from the propaganda where your wife and son called you to be a soldier...

      George Carlin said war is when the leaders of both countries have a bigger dick than anyone else. The title of the film is rather sensational. In fact, the whole film is very restrained. Most of the soldiers in the picture are laughing. Coupled with the self-report of the veterans, it also gives the audience a God's perspective to see how absurd the war...

      The zeal of patriotism and the self-confidence of the British rule of the world have turned into clouds in the trenches of Flanders. Compared with World War II, the shock of World War I to society and the country was more profound. Young soldiers went from passionate to numb and then again. To the hesitation after retiring, the complete disappearance of the Victorian ethos of romanticizing war and archaic weathering has been...

      In the memories of the vicissitudes of the old soldiers, the young soldiers faced the camera, full of immaturity, freshness, innocence, as well as some honesty and shyness from beginning to end. Even after the baptism of bullets and the hellish battlefield, once you look back at the camera, your expression is still the...

    Movie plot

    From 1914 to 1918, the First World War not only changed the course of history, but also changed the fate of countless young people in it. They were once innocent and lush young men who put on uniforms with a passion to defend the country to the death, but they were devastated on the battlefield full of corpses. In the deafening sound of artillery fire, they methodically tested new weapons, but the next time they were hit on flesh and...

    Film repair

    The creative team collected hundreds of hours of original World War I material from the British Imperial War Museum, BBC and other institutions. After watching about 250 hours of film, they selected the material and re-edited it. The film has been contaminated or even scratched due to its age. The production team needs to clean it up and denoise one by one, and then modulate the frame rate of each shot from 13 frames per second to 24...

    "Sound" reproduced

    Because there was no recording of the video materials at that time, Jackson found a lip-talker and showed them the segments of the soldiers' conversation in the movie. The lip-talker fed back the content of the conversation to the crew, and the crew invited actors from specific areas in the UK. Dubbing   .
    The sound engineer collected shell explosions, footsteps in the mud, the click of gun bolts, and the sound of horseshoes to re-dubb...

    • Soldier: [waving at camera] Hi, mum.

    • Soldier: You don't look, you see. You don't hear, you listen. You taste the top of your mouth. Your nose is filled with fumes and death. But the veneer of civilization has dropped away.
