From the beautiful woman in the forest wearing a coat the same color as the surrounding rocks and slowly falling asleep in the corner

I remember that such a long name must be attractive (little conspiracy hahaha)
From the time I saw the title scene, I just discovered that this is a textbook-like movie, with the same thing as the language of the novel, the language of the camera is like The text is just as cold, accurate and chilling. The alien put on his coat and slowly pulled the zipper from the bottom to the top. The sharp stones of the hut were as jet black as her clothes. In fact, the hut is a protective device that plays the same protective role as a human coat. It can be seen that the alien's inner fear and helplessness. Then she huddled into the corner of the room.
At this point, I understand that this is a film that explores human nature and disguise. Because of disguise, we have lost our original nature. The adult world has taught us to disguise ourselves from the time we are sensible, and whether it is to wear gorgeous clothes or do everything in accordance with the rules and etiquette. Because this will give people around you a good impression. If you do it well, it will still be a temptation, but is this your nature? Doubt here.
The most important thing in a good movie is creativity and emotion. I think this movie is a model in this regard, and it brings people to think in many ways.
For example, in the end, the human consciousness in the alien body is actually when the female consciousness awakens, and she no longer takes the initiative to hunt and kill others, but instead protects her own skin and enjoys the benefits of the skin. Thinking of how ironic this is, everything is terrifying, so let's not compare this to ourselves. Otherwise, will we be the same as this alien when we take off this layer of skin?
So the film even has philosophical implications. The discussion of human nature is whether it is the soul in the skin or the skin that tempts people. I have never felt that an absolute answer to a question is a hooligan. Therefore, it can be said that these are two sides of the essence of human nature, and it is good that they complement each other.


If the Chinese film version of the painted skin mainly expresses a fascination that transcends species. So what is more discussed under the skin is the anxiety in the depths of human nature. There is no doubt that the influence of Eastern and Western cultures will be missed. I don't want to say which is better or worse, but the latter still deeply affected me. Makes me more and more confused about myself.
