Due to the limited number of words in the short review, I will briefly talk about it here in the long review.

I think this film can explain what talent is very well. The daughter of a ballet teacher, Debbie, is as precocious and sensitive as Billy, but Debbie is not concerned about ballet itself. She is more likely to learn ballet because of her mother. She doesn't have much love for ballet, but the point she cares about is whether Billy is fancy or not. It can be said that it is the normal reaction of a young girl in the early stages of adolescence. What is Billy's reaction? During the pillow and feather fight with Debbie, he fell on Debbie. Debbie stroked his face with his fingers boldly. At that moment, he also more or less wanted to kiss Debbie. than the impulse. But he never took the matter of love between men and women to heart. He can only say that truly gifted and talented people are often pure and pure. Just like Billy, he only has ballet in his mind, so when facing Debbie When he took the initiative to show his favor, his response was that he never thought about it. Note that this is not a scumbag talk, but his whole body is really immersed in the world of ballet, he is completely unaware of his teacher My daughter would love him and didn't think about anything other than ballet.

Concentration, purity, passion, self-forgetfulness, these are the characteristics of a person who is truly talented in a certain field. Billy simply loves ballet. He also struggled with the ingrained stereotype of "boys shouldn't dance ballet or they're sissies". He used dancing to express all his emotions, dancing when he was happy, and even more so when he was angry. , Dancing is like breathing to him, it is essential, this is not talent or talent, what is it? Even when he walked with his father on the way home, he walked by dancing, and his father reprimanded him: "Can you not walk while dancing?"

A person's talent or talent is often revealed at a very young age, but what exactly? How to judge? I think, the first is pure love, without asking for anything in return, doing this is a reward in itself, and second, happiness, the joy that is unexplained when doing this, if this thing makes you miserable, then lose it its own value. Finally, it's focus. When Billy was auditioning at the Royal Ballet Academy in London, the interviewer asked him the last question: "How does it feel to dance?" His first reaction was "I don't know", but he quickly followed up with "sort feel good, once dancing forgets everything, sort of disappear, I can feel my body changing as if there is a fire in it and I'm left there, flying like a bird, like an electric current. "This is really putting yourself into art!

In addition, I personally think that being gifted is only a matter of comprehension and learning ability faster and stronger than the average person, but it still requires great effort. In order to dance the ballet well, Billy also practiced every day and every night, and only had an amazing leap in the last scene of the film.

Edison said, "Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% sweat" and I agree. Even a genius, if he doesn't put in the effort, he is the second Fang Zhongyong.
