Warm stroke

When it strikes me, I don't have to do normal analysis.

This inspirational film has done "de-idealization" and "de-romanticism" in many details and plot settings. It looks very simple, and there are many similar inspirational films, but the bridges and transitions are too obvious, and the power of emotions is weakened.

Looking at the poster and the title "Dancing Life", I knew it was about a little boy learning ballet. Boys who love to dance learn ballet and encounter the biggest difficulties as one can imagine. Middle-aged aunt-style folk dance teacher enlightenment, single-parent family father and brother opposed (the two are miners, working in a coal mine that is not operating well, and the strike is in full swing), and the secret love of gay classmates. Finally, participated in the interview of the Royal Academy of Ballet and was admitted.

Traditional story, eh. Where did it hit?

Billy didn't say a word, raised his chest, and danced in front of his father almost tearfully to prove himself; when the female teacher learned that Billy was enrolled, she calmly said to him "you will forget me", and silently returned to the classroom. , she smokes a cigarette, and the light through the surrounding smoke outlines her lonely silhouette; Billy (not gay) bids farewell to the little boy and kisses him back before leaving home; Billy becomes the male lead of Swan Lake many years later, jumping out The glorious leap of life.

Technically, on camera, it might say this and that, but when it hits you, forget about it.

    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.
