a story about a dream

I always see the introduction of this film, but I have never seen it. The main reason is that in the trailer, Billy is always jumping energetically and jumping very high, which doesn't give me a good feeling. I watched it patiently recently, and was moved a bit.


A story about a dream. Talent, hard work, chance, and success is the norm for this type of film, and so is this one. But there is something special about this film. The boy's dance teacher, while teaching boys, learns the true meaning of dance - not just a job to make ends meet - it makes people happy and makes people forget everything. It was because of this that the boy was finally admitted to the London Academy of Dance. Another point is the movingly great fatherly love. The father doesn't earn much, but he is willing to spend money to let the child learn boxing, hoping that he will become a real man, but in the end the child likes ballet, which he thinks is a sissy, a hobby that does not belong to his class at all, but finally accepts it , and support the son. In addition, the strikes throughout the play were prepared for later, when father and brother bowed down to life for Billy's future and had to resume work. When the father gave up the strike, sat on the factory car, and accepted the humiliation of the striking workers, while his eldest son was in the excited protest crowd, it is not difficult to realize what kind of difficult sacrifice the father made.


A great movie is inseparable from a great actor. The male protagonist is like born for this film, with the inherent shyness and sensitivity of British boys, and uses passionate body language to describe his dreams.


Good story structure, accurate grasp of emotions, interlacing of main and auxiliary lines, appropriate performance of actors, processing of film music, and contrast of light and shadow make this film one of the iconic films.

    Billy missed the dance after the first Audition. From summer to winter, the emotional release and the visual impact of colors were so intense that I forgot to breathe. Because dance is inherently about emotions, there is love, anger, despair, struggle and hope that can be expressed. Billy begins with a leap of hope and ends with a leap of hope. Great script, the music is a little weird in the first few paragraphs, and then it gets better.

Billy Elliot quotes

  • Billy: I think I'm scared, Dad.

    Dad: That's okay, son. We're all scared.

    Billy: Well... if I don't like it, can I still come back?

    Dad: Are you kidding? We've let out your room.

    [straight face then laughter]

  • Tutor 1: What does it feel like when you're dancing?

    Billy: Don't know. Sorta feels good. Sorta stiff and that, but once I get going... then I like, forget everything. And... sorta disappear. Sorta disappear. Like I feel a change in my whole body. And I've got this fire in my body. I'm just there. Flyin' like a bird. Like electricity. Yeah, like electricity.
