The power of mentality.

I think this film is completely a true portrayal of the hearts of various characters in a real society.

First of all, I think Meredith and Erica are the representatives of the two major mentalities: negative and positive:

Meredith is particularly concerned about how everyone around her looks at her and comments on her, which adds to her troubles and mediocrity, so that she always looks forward and backward, more and more Cowardly was bound by an invisible hand and could not extricate himself. It can be seen in her works that she feels helpless and resentful to the world because of the unrecognized value of her works. The works are vivid at first, but later they become more and more exaggerated and empty, which also shows her The loneliness, emptiness, impetuousness and inferiority of the inner spiritual world. During this period, she asked Henry for help. Henry was on the negative side at the time, but he still gave her spiritual support, but because her negative attitude had covered her whole mind at this time, Henry's concern for her was distorted into hatred .

Meredith was unfortunate because negativity eventually led to her death.

Erica is the lowest occupation in this society - a sex worker, who has been treated unfairly in all kinds of ways. First, she did not get paid for serving others and was slapped by others. Later, she was severely beaten by "consumers". They all chose silence. Until she met a tearful Henry on the bus, and she saw hope when she met him again. The difference between her and Meredith is that she doesn't care about other people's opinions and comments on her. When you have nothing more to lose is when you start to gain. She chose to change herself and face life positively.

Erica is lucky because positivity finally brought her the light of day.

At the same time, the clips of the two teachers in the film also left a deep impression on me:

The first is a male teacher with glasses. He grabs the barbed wire on the playground almost every day during the day. What is he doing? Are you complaining about the injustice of fate? I think so. At this moment, a huge net wrapped tightly around him in his heart, making him feel breathless and unable to extricate himself. He must have wanted to break free from the net and escape to the world outside the net. However, when he came home at night and saw the people in the house sitting there motionless like a pool of stagnant water, he was angry at first and wanted to change all this, and then he thought about it and chose to remain silent, choosing to be a surrenderer of fate. He simply thought that the net (reality) bound him, but it was his heart that bound him.

The second is the headmistress of the school, when she heard that the students' grades were getting worse and the personality was getting more and more distorted, and she heard a teacher's shouting in the tape recorder. As a principal, she was so calm and calm in her heart, and she did not make any changes because of this. When he returned home at night and faced her husband's dissatisfaction with her stagnant life and threw the vase, he did not respond. The principal's life was summed up in one sentence: He died at the age of 30, and was buried at the age of 70.

No dream is like a calm lake, lifeless. Life is only a few short decades, and we can't waste it pointlessly.
Only by having a dream can we take action to make a change! No matter how many obstacles there are on the road ahead, we must face it with a positive attitude.

No matter how low your starting point is now, if you don't give up, anything is possible.

God help those who help themselves! ---- Encouragement with you.

  • Henry Barthes: I am money, I change hands like the dollar bill, that has been rubbed by a lamp; Then a genie appeared and cried loudly, with volume; But the tears were all for myself, and that's where it all went wrong
