Pig cage walled city is the shape of the womb

Finally got time to watch Kung Fu, the beautiful life of the pig cage city is hidden in the city. Especially in the scene where the camera pans for a long time, it looks like the ordinary citizens of old Shanghai, under the dim yellow and lazy lights, this world is so magical and unknowable, and strange people and strange things are hidden everywhere. Just as in the eyes of children, running in the alley is an intoxicating and dizzying exploration. Every door that is opened or closed hides a huge world that is not commensurate with a small body, strange and unknown, enough to accommodate all hopes and fantasies . We passed the warm and diffused light, the rustling scent of oil, the blurred figures, and ran safely between the legs of the neighbors. Hunger and curiosity constituted the whole of life. Why is it that when we grow up, our cognition gradually becomes clear, and all the magic is returned to the earth, but we never feel a deep disappointment, or this disappointment has been forgotten.

The pig cage walled city is in the shape of a womb.

The earth building of the pig cage walled city is a semi-enclosed shape, like a safe and warm womb. The outside is a boring world that is so cruel and boring that it is full of tram passers-by and axe vendetta, but the pig cage walled city can still be maintained. Vibrant innocence. The three aunts and six grandmothers next door are incognito martial arts masters. Isn't this a fantasy we believed in when we were children. When Xingzai bid farewell to the age when he believed that the beggar's secret book could contain peerless martial arts, the adult world covered by cruel survival laws gradually assimilated, but he came to this isolated pig cage city by ghosts and gods. The magical world is restored, how can it not be deeply touched. What kind of redemption is this, like a baby returning to the womb, where the polluted and numb soul is washed and reborn.

When the young Xingzai began to understand that it was the wind that shook the leaves after the palm of his hand was split. When he woke up, the world was so realistic and boring. Did he ever feel a deep disappointment, or this disappointment has been forgotten. Once upon a time, the dream in his heart had been replaced by a realistic desire to join the Axe Gang, until he came to this pig cage city where fate met.

Night Raid is the world after dinner

In the eyes of children, day and night are two completely different parts, and dinner is a watershed. Because after dinner, it is rare to be allowed to go out, so the strangeness and temptation at night is far greater than that during the day. When the day becomes known and boring, we still have a long night to hope for, and imaginary duels between knights also mostly take place at night. Just like the scene of the three masters leaving the village, the sky and the earth are attacking at night. When we reluctantly lay down on the bed, the nightlife of the knights just started, and we couldn't help but miss how much excitement and excitement.

Jiang Bao is the mirror of Xing Zai.

In fact, I really hope that Jiang Bao, who has firm eyes, a dull expression, does not eat hard and soft, insists on showing his half ass is the protagonist of Kung Fu. Compared with Xing Zai, he has never grown up, never gave up on dreams. From the first confrontation, he was like a mirror of Xingzai, he never flinched in the face of extortion, believing that he was one of the best martial arts geniuses, because he never left Pigcage Walled City. He is the spiritual projection of Xing Zai who never grew up and never gave up his dreams.

When the pig cage city masters gathered, the Legend of Condor Heroes was not a legend, the camera returned to the smashed traffic light, the reality and the magic merged, the childhood dream broke out of the cocoon, and Xingzai finally sent out the palm of his hand.

An indescribable effort.
