To make an excellent tragic film on a not-so-great subject matter

Although it is an extremely sensational film, its theme is not very novel. It is nothing more than the contradiction between the father and the son, the gap caused by the difference between the father's expectations and the son's ideal. In the end, there is no chance to make up for the death of the two sides. Recognize that the other person is always a relative that you can't let go of. Such films with more common themes can only rely on emotions to stand out, and shock the audience with a momentary emotional bombardment. The director's skill in using contrasting techniques is indeed good. The use of a "grandma"-like aunt and a simple and slow brother increases the comedy effect of the film, making people laugh and enjoy the family picnic and the usual slapstick, so they are caught off guard. The ground was hit hard at the critical moment. The just-right plot arrangement and the just-in-time music coordination are indeed a plus point for the movie. Silently smashing a beautiful mirror and taking someone from a newly reunited family is a helpless, mischievous joke.

Lost to a coup, lost to disease. Lost to self-esteem, lost to stubbornness.

Plain and ordinary shooting techniques, over-invested cast and crew. Does it speak of the Qing father-son relationship? It was the result of restraint and restraint in the bottom of my heart, full of love and tenderness that had nowhere to express. It is a tragedy that has been condensed into a ball and has not been revealed for various reasons. Inexplicable. Father's love is too forbearing and silent, easy to be ignored, and easy to be misunderstood. This kind of deep and stable precipitation itself is an incomprehensible tragedy, just like Daniz can't understand Sadik's good intentions to stay away from himself, just like Sadik can't bear his father's expectations and reprimands. Love is a topic that can never be understood, and only regret, despair and helplessness can be expressed most vividly in rough lens language. Movies that depict comedy make people forget in a blink of an eye, movies that describe tragedy can leave a trace of unknown depth, and movies that bury irreparable sadness in the tiny and clear family happiness make people dumbfounded, and then burst into tears. Down.

Why do most literary works express tragedy more forcefully? Roughly as one book* says, "Emotions often occur when new responses are attempted and old responses are blocked." Tragedy is uncommon in ordinary life, so the shock of tragedy goes far beyond the ordinary the power of comedy. The interweaving of tragedy and drama, the fusion of life and film, is like drawing people into the film, which greatly enhances the appeal of the film, so it is easier for people to be hurt.

This is a predictable but unavoidable tragedy.

*This book is "Rural China"

*The movie itself doesn't really have much of a standout, so I had to scribble down my first impression after watching the movie, which was very rough. The love of tragedy made me choose this movie, but it looks like it's just a moving tragedy.
