Nostalgic things in the mirror

When it comes to old American movies, I can't help but mention the famous "Butterfly Dream" (English rebecca), which I have watched many times since middle school. The Chinese translation of the film is Butterfly Dream, the meaning of which comes from the allusion of Zhuang Zhou dreaming of a butterfly.

During the Warring States Period, Zhuangzi put forward the philosophical point of view that it is impossible for a person to accurately distinguish between reality and illusion, as well as the materialization of life and death, through the story of a self-confessed butterfly that turns into a butterfly in a dream and a butterfly that wakes up in a dream. Zhuang Zhou Mengdie penetrated the essence of Zhuangzi's poetic philosophy and became the representative of Zhuangzi's poetic philosophy.

Coincidentally, the movie "Butterfly Dream" is also a dream-like story because it tells about the loss of dream characters and real characters. It touches the fur of Zhuang Zhou Mengdie to some extent, and is translated into Butterfly Dream.

The film begins with the heroine's dream of returning to Manderley Manor, and tells a sentimental and romantic emotional story with a sentimental tone. The heroine is a humble but well-bred heroine, a young girl who escorts rich women. Due to her humble background and the demands of her work, despite her youth and beauty, she lacks any confidence. When the girl was working in the south of France, she met Mr. Maxime Derwent, a famous British high-society millionaire. The latter's graceful demeanor and hidden demeanor are deeply attracted to girls who are not deep in the world. And Derwent was obviously attracted by the girl's simplicity and simplicity, and the two quickly fell in love and got married in a flash.

Mr. Derwent took his young wife back to the famous manor in England, where Mr. Derwent was born and raised, Manderley Manor. The story unfolds in the beautiful but mysterious Manderley Manor. Through the looming appearance of Mr. Derwent's ex-wife Rebecca, a simple and blurred story for the young Mrs. Derwent begins.

The most special point is that the director of the film is my favorite suspense master Hitchcock. Through his unique suspense skills, let us follow the young Mrs. Derwent into the most indelible part of her life. The emotional journey is like a dream, we seem to see Rebecca appearing on Mrs. New Derwent as if she is possessed, and the mysterious past follows us like a shadow, let us and New Derwent Mrs. Te is full of curiosity and can't stop!

This is a bizarre emotional experience, a bridge full of suspense, and a sad song filled with nostalgia. And when the story comes to the end, your emotions have been involved in it, and you can't help but sigh.

"Butterfly Dream" is derived from the novel [Rebecca] Rebecca of the same name by the British writer Daphne du Maurier. Some people say that Du Maurier is a romantic novelist, probably because of her romantic tone and delicate emotional description, but what she tells is a kind of disheartened languidness hidden under the romantic text The petty bourgeoisie mentality, or the bleak and gloomy feeling produced by complex psychological contradictions runs through. Because her novels rarely have a happy ending, her "romantic" shell is often at odds with the sinister overtones and supernatural psychological shadows of her work's substance.

The end of "Butterfly Dream" is the same as the beginning. It is full of the meaning of Zhuang Zhou's dream of not knowing where he is. It is more in line with the mood and feeling described in "Jinse" by Li Shangyin, a poet of the Tang Dynasty:
Jinse has fifty strings for no reason . , One string and one column think of the Chinese New Year.
Zhuang Shengxiao is obsessed with butterflies in his dreams, and he hopes that Emperor Chunxin will care for cuckoos.
There are tears in the sea, the moon and the pearl, and the warm jade in the blue field produces smoke.
This feeling can be reminisced, but it was already lost at the time.

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.
