Dance out of my world.
At the beginning of the film, the boy happily jumped himself into the air. The warm wallpaper behind is a carrier of happiness.
At the end of the film, the boy has become a successful ballerina and has grown up. The warm wallpaper behind him has also become a "witness" and a "person" of the boy's perfect leap to become a ballet dancer and a successful person.

Watching this movie, listening to the music in the movie, I can't describe the joy in my heart. Movies can always inadvertently deliver a precise and subtle touch, as if every possible point was planned but never designed on purpose.
I always thought that successful music in a movie would be a powerful aphrodisiac. It can always sublimate the feelings precisely when the film needs to express their feelings most, and subtly harmonize the audience's subjective feelings with the objective expressions of the film like spring breeze and rain, which plays an incredible lubricating role. A good movie soundtrack and movie will always blend with each other and sublimate each other to exist, but will never be independent of each other and dry each other.

He has always been very fond of such small and warm film works. Moves people with love, and the story is also very funny.
In the film's first plot point, Billy ditches boxing for a dramatic chance in ballet. Dancing always brings happiness to Billy and forgets temporary stress. For Billy learning to dance, the main conflict in the film is the conflict between him and his grumpy father about learning ballet. The struggle between gays and lesbians; another more insidious thread is the stark contrast between strike and ballet, one violent and the other gentle, the cruel reality and the beautiful ideal.
The conflict between Billy and his father broke out for the first time at the dinner table. When he was strongly hindered by his father, it was the first time that Billy vented all the resentment in his heart to his dance, and performed his dance steps respectfully. When he ran to the street and saw the strike sign, he unreservedly put all his dissatisfaction on the cold sign, and punching and kicking it implied that he was dissatisfied and resisted to the cold reality.
Christmas Eve, in the boxing room. When Billy saw his father, who was extremely dissatisfied with him, rushed to the scene, he could no longer suppress his inner dissatisfaction, and once again expressed his inner heart in the way of dancing, he danced to his heart's content, using his own The dance challenged and resisted his father. This time Billy succeeded in impressing his father. His father faced the younger son in front of him almost with tears in his eyes. He hurried to the ballet teacher's house to ask about the selection of the Royal Ballet School, saying that he would be responsible for Billy's tuition fees for ballet, and he supported himself from the bottom of his heart. son. For Billy's sake, he chose to give up the strike, crying to his eldest son who didn't understand him, "My son may really be a genius, I have to help him." Love and affection will always be touched by resonance.

"Sissy" has always troubled little Billy. Among all the people, boys who learn to dance will always only have comments like "sissy", and he will always debate with the people around him and struggle with himself. This problem has always been troublesome. with little Billy. He's also struggling with whether he likes girls or boys. To the girl's teasing, he responded with "You are strange too"; to the boy's admiration for him, he also asked his good friend "Are you GAY?" in an uncertain attitude. Later he didn't get any electric shocks with the girl, and broke up with his gay best friend in an elusive gesture: when the best friend shouted "hey dancer friend", Billy flew to the friend and broke up with the best friend kissed on the face. At the end of the film, when Billy's father and brother came to see the Billy dance they had learned, some people said that in the scene, the dance group Billy was in actually symbolized a GAY group, because there was no actress. Maybe he really made it clear about his sexuality.

When Billy's brother was locked in an iron cage and was about to be sent underground to dig coal, we knew Billy had really succeeded, and he had achieved his dream. In the director's premeditated, it seems that the cold reality is not dangerous at all in front of Billy and the children. They can unscrupulously glide the twigs in their hands in front of the police's shield, and run around in front of the repressing police. Those so-called state order organizations have no role in the world of children. It's also a contrast to those ironies of the adult world.

In this movie, no one is successful except Billy. Even the MISS ballet teacher who discovered Billy himself would still take classes in the vacated half of the boxing ring. When Billy was about to go to the Royal Ballet School in London, he came to say goodbye to MISS, who said confidently or almost indifferently, "You won't miss me, because you have a great future ahead of you, do it!" And then As usual, the students walking up to their mouths shouted beats. The director gave this individual MISS a back, lonely and lost back, which is very touching. Everyone has their own ideals, and everyone has the opportunity to pursue their own ideals.

And I've got this fire in my body. I'm just there. Flyin' like a bird. Like electricity. Yeah, like electricity.
