"Roots Matter"

A rare film of more than two hours, shot like prose, but not sleepy. After the plot of the section developed, I tried my best to figure out what the author of the puzzle wanted to express, and finally I finally understood it with the help of other people's film reviews.

The first half of life is like an impressive new book, ambitious, to become the crown of the upper class, and the second half of life has become an indescribable nothingness, like a car that drives around the crown, but goes nowhere. The little train that doesn't work. "Root" is the hometown that can be returned, the truth of the little girl's view of the world, the power of anger and questioning, the effort to live well every day, and the belief that is true to oneself. Death comes at any time, and the individual is insignificant to the whole world, and it is also insignificant to the individuals around him. The party at night continued, and the sun rose as usual during the day. The circle of friends likes either relatives or party B. It is better to participate in the game if you think too much and some don't. It's normal for things to backfire. The antidote to controlling negative emotions is to dance like a stripper in the play, and people don't stop, and then, accidentally meet the protagonist. Well, if something backfires, there will be surprises, provided that you keep walking.

Waiting for Godot will not appear, why should there be meaning in life, like a math problem that can never be solved, instilled with all kinds of artificial and specious answers. Enjoy every day, with curiosity, with gratitude, "resonance" with life, "beauty" is always there, and the game ends at any time.

    The best foreign language film of the 2013-14 awards season, the Oscars and the Golden Globes are well deserved. In terms of form: the scheduling of shots is beautiful, the composition of the picture is suffocating, the soundtrack is like the sound of nature, and the editing is ingenious; in terms of content: the block narrative has a stream of consciousness charm but still has a main line, and a rich philosophy (existentialism, beauty, Modernity), Severo's excellent performance. Even without looking into the connotations and metaphors, it is enough to appreciate the beauty. (9.5/10)

    Beautiful and empty, flashy and decadent, crazy and lonely, poetic and sad. Drinking and singing, recklessly and joyously. The cup was in a mess, and tears flew into a downpour. The film is as its name, a beautiful city, so desperately beautiful. Only death, only death can stop your grief.
