Butterfly Dream

I feel that the effect is not as expected, and I plan to read novels again... It's like you know that the director can do everything, but you always feel that something is missing.

The prudent and cautious heroine, with her back slumped, is always afraid, but not afraid enough. She can tell that she is acting, panicking and overwhelmed; the female housekeeper in black is very good, and it blends with the atmosphere of a big house. Like a wisp of Rebecca's ghost. This kind of tall old building always reminds people of the howling wind, the echo of footsteps and voices is empty, as if someone is answering what you said, as if you are walking alone, someone is walking towards you.

My favorite part of the whole movie is when the heroine walks into the original hostess's room. The housekeeper's lines should be slower, the light is darker (even if the curtains are opened), and the silk gem ornaments in the room are used to create slight reflections, The heroine who turns around like someone is staring at a headless fly. The velvet curtains blew from the ceiling to the ground, like waterfalls of long black hair, like someone's skirt standing straight, as if approaching someone's cheek or pale calf.

Rebecca was shaped like a cuttlefish condensed to the extreme. When she was alive, she only poked out a little bit of poison. When she died, she suddenly turned into a huge shadow of black mist, covering the entire manor. Behind the black-clothed butler, she seemed to be able to see her standing in a cloak and long skirt. She was huge and her face was unclear, but she could tell that she was smiling, cold, cruel, and playful. Nothing she cares about, dignity, honor, love, it's all just toys and games, and in the end she has to mock death, and the fact is as she wishes, as the heroine said at the beginning, it becomes a lifelong life. nightmare.

A little less scary.

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.
