was also a book thief

When I saw the name of the movie, the first thing that came to my mind was Kong Yiji. Stealing books, the matter of the readers, can it be considered stealing? I thought it was going to be a movie about stealing books? Pure book theft. After a cursory look at it, I found that the things the movie tells are actually more interesting than stealing the book. Stealing books is just stealing books. I also stole books when I was a child. In high school, I also stole nearly 20 books from the Xinhua Readers Club and the county library that were not available in bookstores at the time. It's a pity that the books I stole back then, and looking at them now, are there really a few more useful ones? The above is just a digression about the movie.

The film begins with a white world, narrated in the way of death. Snow is present almost throughout the film. The world was originally white, and there were solitary ash trees or iron bridges or houses in the white world. It seems to tell us that the world is originally pure, and it is complicated by these inhabitants or other plants and animals.

The time span of the film is relatively long from 38 to 45 years. From the life of Paradise Street to reflect the brutality and despotism of the Nazi era. Burning books, raising the left hand, brutal soldiers, bad boys on bicycles shouting that Britain and Germany are going to war, until the last 14-year-old children participate in military training, and the elderly father enlists because he says the neighbors are non-Jews. From these bits and pieces to tell the viewer how the Nazis gradually failed. A typical see the micro to know the book, a leaf to know the autumn.

There are promises in the movie where the father has to risk the family's arrest for harboring the son of a Jewish comrade-in-arms because of the promise on the battlefield. Liesel also kept the news in her heart for a long time because she promised her father and didn't tell anyone. There is love in the movie, when the lazy father sees Liesel holding the first book and tells Liesel that he can't read much and can read with Liesel. Rudy fell in love with Liesel the first time she saw her, and jumped into the river to help Liesel retrieve her notebook on a snowy day. In order to save Mark, Liesel stole a book to read to him. These scenes are full of love. Although these are all points, they are all based on points, and work hard from subtle points. There are foreshadowings everywhere, there are responses everywhere. Until the end of the movie, I still feel unfinished and want to continue watching.

I used to be a book thief, I also stole books, but what I stole in the movie is not only books, but also time, friendship, and stories told by invisible and intangible death.

    I was almost able to become the second reader. The director's skill is still weak and this script worth digging wasted. In the end, the film was not at all energetic, and the book became a decoration without even clues. The clues are lovely love stories.

    Love and hope are inadvertently revealed. This is a beautiful and touching story.
