Don't betray your love

Like something, immersed in it, like the whole world has disappeared, a blank, infinite freedom, you can fly like a bird.

Favorite place is after the midpoint of the movie, showing a little Billy tap dancing, anger, pain, struggle. First of all, the dance accurately conveyed Billy's mood, and secondly, the application of focal length, a large number of wide-angle shooting close-up, close-up, magnified the tension of the scene. The change of the final scene shows Billy wanting to break through layers of shackles, but also emphasizes the resistance he faces everywhere, from stone walls to iron walls, not only the opposition of the family, but also the shackles of society. The seamless time and space transition from autumn to winter adds a touch of chill to this passage.

In addition to the dream that little Billy chased throughout the film, there is also a line of miners going on strike throughout the film, and among the strikers happens to include Billy's father and brother. This setting magnifies a family's disapproval of boys dancing ballet, because ballet is so out of place and even immoral in a family in the bottom society. In the end, the father's betrayal of the principle does not mean that the father has opened his heart. He just doesn't want to ruin his son's dream to raise money, and he doesn't even open the little Billy's heart. It should be the director deliberately. Because the little Billy's kiss to his gay friend when he parted, and Billy's jump at the end of the film, is a layer of social confinement that the director wants to break.

Not every love will be opposed, and not everyone can meet a teacher who discovers your talent, so don't let yourself down.

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.
