The moment I jumped in the air (The first film I watched when I arrived at London)

Sitting in the classroom and watching a movie:

tutorial talk outside the classroom

The blue and yellow images accompany the music of the cosmic dancerc, and an eleven-year-old boy in a yellow vest jumps in the air with emotion. His face, eyes, hands stretched hands, smiling. The picture slowly brings the jumping boy closer to the camera. He is Billy Elliot.

This is a single parent family, a father, two sons, a grandmother with some neurological problems, the eldest son and the father both work in the coal mine in the small town. In this cold, quiet town, Billy goes to boxing classes every week and is taught to be like a man and to do what a man is supposed to do. But his nerves were completely hit by ballet. The ballet dance teacher in the town is a middle-aged woman with a cigarette in her mouth. She saw Billy's inner desire. Letter from Billy's mother to her son. It was a letter that Billy should have opened when he was eighteen, "son, My son, you will always be yourself." Learning ballet was beaten and scolded by his father, and humiliated by his brother.

In 1984, there were serious miners and police clashes in the north of England and people went crazy and joined the bell. But Billy's world is the dancing rhythm and body of his dreams. While the outside world is full of swearing and beatings, Billy's world is notes and dances that happen and exist at the same time.

On Christmas night, as the family sat by the fire, the usually grim father suddenly burst into tears. The stove burns the piano that my mother played when she was alive. Breaking the piano with an axe during the day makes a noise like a father's miserable inner world.

The dance teacher and Billy secretly train in ballet. In this dance world, Billy finds himself.
Billy's brother's description is very small, but very precise. The relationship between brothers never needs words. The older brother said something he never said "I miss you" but Billy couldn't hear those words in the bus that was going away.

    Not inspiring, but still a touching story, especially when my father changed his stance. Dance is actually the protagonist's inner talk, as she said: "It feels good, as if I don't exist." This really has a taste of the heroine's mood in "Dancer in the Darkness". The first few paragraphs of the montage are creative, and the ending is a bit slow. PS: The emotional drama of the corrupt country film is really a slot. . .

    You may have a father like this, who wears very earthy clothes and has never been in a city. But for the sake of your dreams. Then he rushes when you succeed.

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.
