Death also falters

Looking at a person's life with the eyes of death, will it be so cold that there is no temperature at all? Using the voice of death to describe the trauma of a war, would it be an understatement to make the pain also isolated from the world? Perhaps only the god of death can transcend time and individuality, and can look forward calmly in the midst of change and turmoil, looking forward to something that makes it daunting, growing slowly...

A girl who has lost a loved one, weak but persistent and daring, Foster care in a kind family. The hostess looks tacky and fussy, while the male host looks dull, humble and cowardly. However, it is in such a "home" that the shrinking flowers are gradually nourished by the love of the world. Although the wind and frost are still cold, the flowers that have been frost and rain finally have a heart of hope and are placed on the ruins of war.

The friendship of the boy next door's childhood sweetheart, all kinds of tender care and even the unfinished love, the brave love and pure heart have moved people; the adoptive couple's deep feelings hidden under the surface of trivial life, the noisy husband and wife. Love, even raising orphaned girls, sheltering Jewish youth, and making people lament the kindness and greatness of ordinary people. The film accurately expresses the unforgettable love of this ordinary couple just through the daily details. The encounter of the Jewish youth is the focus of the conflict in the film, and it is also an important link that makes the film rise from an ordinary emotional film to a classic masterpiece. The little girl read a book to the Jewish youth in the cellar. The hugs and shouts of Jewish youth looking up at the starry sky after sneaking out of the cellar on Christmas night reminded people of The Shawshank Redemption, the same tenacity and the same desire for freedom and liberation. The literacy and elegance of the German officer's family, and the magnanimity and laissez-faire of the master are another reflection on the war. Books are the fruit of human wisdom, the means of continuing history, and also the fortress that hides the future and hope. The children who stole books finally lost everything in the war. All their reliance no longer exists, only books and memories. Accompany her to recover from the pain. Those desperate and cold days, but because of books and those who live forever in life, have the first pleasure in the world, and become the source of strength to draw a lifetime. Books rescued from the ashes, survivors from massacres, hope bred in death, right from wrong.

In the world, there are some fires that never go out, perhaps the pillars of light rising from books, and the god of death will also be discouraged.

The Book Thief quotes

  • Liesel Meminger: I keep thinking about Max, wondering where he is.

    Hans Hubermann: Me too. I'm not sure what it all meant. Everything he went through. Everything we did.

    Liesel Meminger: We were just being people. That's what people do.

  • Death: In my job, I'm always seeing humans at their best, and their worst. I see their ugliness, and their beauty. And I wonder how the same thing can be both.
