dream to wake up

Zechariah 2022-04-19 09:01:41

Yet another Hitchcock classic! Rebecca, the former hostess of Manderley Manor who never showed up from start to finish, has influenced the film, from start to finish, through and through! Old furniture, interiors The furnishings, the color of the curtains, the flower diameter, the hostility of Mrs. Danvers, the housekeeper, the evasiveness of the new husband, Rebecca's shadow fills the life of the newlyweds. She originally thought that a happy life was in front of her, but she did not expect that she would wait for herself. What is gloomy, cold, hostile! The dream is broken, the former mistress haunts her life like a nightmare, life and death are hard to find, no matter how beautiful the butterfly is, but the dream is always a dream, and it will eventually be annihilated, just like the last inexplicable fire that burns out Manderley Manor, burnt out her dreams! It's time to wake up!

    When I rewatched it again, I thought I couldn't blame it as a love story when I was a kid, and the director thought so too! Greatly beautified the image of the male protagonist, and even changed the killing of his wife, and really turned into a Mr. Rochester! The final fire was really the mad woman in the attic. What's interesting is that although I want to be a Cinderella, the second half is more like "Jane Eyre" than the original. The audiovisual language is as always NB, the Prince of Shakespeare is so handsome.

    Can the heroine be stupid?

Rebecca quotes

  • Mrs. Danvers: [as the second Mrs. de Winter runs into the room] I watched you go down just as I watched her a year ago. Even in the same dress you couldn't compare.

    The Second Mrs. de Winter: You knew it! You knew that she wore it, and yet you deliberately suggested I wear it. Why do you hate me? What have I done to you that you should ever hate me so?

    Mrs. Danvers: You tried to take her place. You let him marry you. I've seen his face - his eyes. They're the same as those first weeks after she died. I used to listen to him, walking up and down, up and down, all night long, night after night, thinking of her, suffering torture because he lost her!

    The Second Mrs. de Winter: [turning away in shame and shock] I don't want to know, I don't want to know!

    Mrs. Danvers: [moving towards her] You thought you could be Mrs. de Winter, live in her house, walk in her steps, take the things that were hers! But she's too strong for you. You can't fight her - no one ever got the better of her. Never, never. She was beaten in the end, but it wasn't a man, it wasn't a woman. It was the sea!

    The Second Mrs. de Winter: [collapsing in tears on the bed] Oh, stop it! Stop it! Oh, stop it!

    Mrs. Danvers: [opening the shutters] You're overwrought, madam. I've opened a window for you. A little air will do you good.

    [as the second Mrs. de Winter gets up and walks toward the window]

    Mrs. Danvers: Why don't you go? Why don't you leave Manderley? He doesn't need you... he's got his memories. He doesn't love you, he wants to be alone again with her. You've nothing to stay for. You've nothing to live for really, have you?

    [softly, almost hypnotically]

    Mrs. Danvers: Look down there. It's easy, isn't it? Why don't you? Why don't you? Go on. Go on. Don't be afraid...

  • Mrs. Danvers: She knew everyone that mattered. Everyone loved her.
