old classic

A very classic old movie.

"Butterfly Dream" contains many elements, which have been repeatedly used by later generations. A poor girl married into a wealthy family and flew up the branches to become a phoenix. The stand-in stalk of Queen Chunyuan (specifically, the current wearing the clothes of her dead predecessor to attend a banquet touched her husband's heartbreak and was scolded by her husband). Wife murderer. East Palace Terrier (suicide makes her husband feel guilty, and she lives in the shadows in the second half. In fact, the hero and heroine turn around and live happily and forget Rebecca).

The female protagonist married the male protagonist, and after arriving at the villa, she was always in a panic, submissive and petty, and many barrages scolded her. Although I also hate her like this, but logically, there is nothing wrong with her behavior.

Today's children can surf the Internet and watch dramas, with a wide range of information, plus God's perspective, they know what it is like to marry into a wealthy family. The hostess is a young and poor girl from the bottom. She has no Internet access, limited information, and has never lived in a wealthy family. She suddenly became the hostess in a mansion with dozens of servants. No one taught her how to do and what to do. Moody, she must be flustered and restless. Her personality is relatively soft, from the housekeeper to the servants, they are all thinking about how beautiful and excellent the ex-wife is. Her behavior was annoying, but normal.

On the contrary, a young poor girl entering a wealthy family is like returning home, knowing all the rules of the upper class, or using her own mud-legged survival skills to overthrow the survival rules of the entire upper class, opening a plug-in to engage in squatting. This kind of character looks cool, but it is obviously illogical and cannot stand scrutiny.

Going back to the plot, the long-term relationship, I think it is still not exciting enough, not fascinating enough, and the details cannot stand up to scrutiny. After the climax of the male protagonist confessing to killing his wife, he watched it boringly. Finally, the doctor came to the reversal of Rebecca's East Palace Terrier, and it lit up again.

In fact, if you think about it carefully, the male protagonist is a person who is even more inferior than the female protagonist. Married to a socialite-like wife (Rebecca), he sulked when he couldn't hold back. The relationship between husband and wife broke down, and Rebecca lived an absurd and corrupt life as a noblewoman. If she didn't get a divorce, he still couldn't stand her, so he killed her. In the play, the male protagonist is washed very white, and even the murder process is vague, saying that he doesn't know and dare not explain clearly (the novel is a shooting), as if he is innocent, but in fact he is self-inflicted.

The housekeeper burned the house for Rebecca and died in the fire. It was really a lily love. (In the novel, the housekeeper burns the house and runs away)

Rebecca never appeared, but like a butterfly, she enveloped everyone in her butterfly dream.

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.
