      It is surprising that war can happen anytime, anywhere. War is not a freewheeling excuse. "You dance beautifully." "I can't see it." "A layman doesn't understand it, only a layman knows." "That shows you are a layman." Madness is a good feeling. I hope you don't choose to do anything at mealtime in the future. I don't have to believe in the so-called matchmaking. There are many unfortunate marriages like this. We were strangers when we entered, and intimate when we came out. (Church...

      I love you, never loved anyone, never will, it's true, never will.


      I don't know why, compared to "Soul Broken Blue Bridge", I think the original name "Broken Bridge Can Dream" is more suitable for this movie.

      The four characters "Soulbroken Blue Bridge" originally refer to an infatuated man who died under the bridge by holding a pillar when the water rose before waiting for the woman. That is, "one party misses the contract, the other party sacrifices love".

      But this is not the case in this movie. Did Roy and Mara die for love at the...

      Soul Broken Blue Bridge

      As a Hollywood love story that is popular all over the world, the reason why it makes people hold their breath is not only because the love in the smoke makes people intoxicated, and the defects in the beauty make people sad, but more importantly, the eternity of love in life makes people fascinated. The content of the film is legendary, with a strong literary and artistic atmosphere, and has a very high tear-jerking effect.

      In the film, the theme music adapted from the Scottish folk...

      "Soul Broken Blue Bridge", a film from a long, long time ago. I revisited it a few days ago. At the end, Vivien Leigh was still walking faster and faster against the roaring military trucks on the Waterloo Bridge. Empty and confused to firm and decisive interpretation shocked. So, very hypocritical, I want to write something for this classic. To be honest, the plot of "Blue Bridge of Soul Broken" is a bit cliché. The film takes World War II as the prelude, and the memory of the hero Loy brings...

      sad ending

      I like "Blue Bridge" very much. Vivien Leigh is really good at acting. She is naughty and cute, and she is beautiful and generous. She is really cute! It is said that she likes the film the most. I also like the British accent of the film's dialogue. The British gentleman is both rigorous and humorous. Compared with this, France is too romantic and it is nonsense, and Germany is too serious and rigid. In this film, it is a tragedy at the end, and I am very puzzled and incomprehensible about...

      Friends and neighbors Qingyishui has more than four stars, which is understandable. But, I don't like it. The reason is very simple: I don't see any love, only the artificiality of both men and...

      What a perfect movie! The ballet dancers symbolize the feminine and graceful grace of women, and the officers and captains symbolize the bravery and integrity of men. What a match made in heaven, they are helpless and cannot stand the torment of the times! If we meet in the next life, will we still fall in love at first sight? Is it possible to create a marriage contract without even knowing the other party's name? It only takes one day to buy a diamond ring, buy flowers, go to church and...

      The script, the actors, the music, everything was perfect. In order to participate in the art test, I watched this film no less than 10 times, and I almost memorized the lines. It was hurt, so I can't watch it...

      [Exhibition at the China Film Archive] The classic dubbing version of the above translation. The quality of the copy is poor, the quality of the audience is low, but the film is still very classic. Vivien Leigh is so beautiful, her eyes can act. I admire the action-oriented male lead who is bold to love. I don't like the slightly hypocritical heroine and the ending that I could have guessed. So minus points. Samsung and a...

    Continuity: At the beginning of the film, Roy got out of the car and wanted to walk across the Waterloo Bridge alone, and ordered the driver to wait for him on the other side of the bridge. The movie started to flash back when he was walking, but in the final shot, they were seen driving across the bridge and then leaving.
    Anachronism: Although the film took place during the First World War before 1920, all the dresses and hairstyles of...
