Contradictory blend

Lowell 2022-04-20 09:01:38

From the very beginning the film sets up many contradictions. The entire film is a continuation of contradictions.

The conflict between the boxing coach and the dance teacher: where the classes are taught The conflict between
BILLY and his brother: because of his brother's ignorance of his little kid The
conflict between BILLY and his father: the father wants him to do something a man should do
The conflict between the dance teacher and her alcoholic husband: the sex life is not in harmony, the alcoholic husband has an affair .
The conflict between the labor union and the coal mine:?
Conflict between workers and police: ?
BILLY faces the contradiction of the boy who likes him: the two have a good relationship, but BILLY is not gay
. . .

There are still many such contradictions in the film, but the director analyzes them one by one through BILLY's dancing experience, and finally the contradiction is alleviated bit by bit at the end.

The film can make you laugh or make you cry. I like such a movie, it can touch the weakest string in my heart, and it can play beautiful music.

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.
