detachment and shackles

A short story with no ending, a protagonist who is naturally melancholy and whose background is unknown. Seeing me suppressed, shocked and pained.

A movie that people admire is because a certain part of his plot and the mood he conveys resonate, so the popularity of a movie can also reflect some social phenomena...

The film begins with a quote from Camus: I have never felt so deeply that the distance between my soul and me is so far away, and my existence is so dependent on the world.

During the day, my body wanders in fiery pain. At night, my soul is pulled and tormented, but I am still alive. None of these pains can hurt my heart, because my heart has been separated from me. If it comes back, I will definitely feel it. to pain.

Those who choose to commit suicide are living earnestly and down-to-earth, and those who survive are some because of their ignorance and bravery, and some because they are already ashes.

This world has changed from order to disorder, and the creator's failed experiment has been absurd since its birth. Tossing and turning in the shackles, it is better to be detached in death; people have been pursuing complete silence all their lives, living towards death, over and over again, gods, what are they trying to prove, so that the earth experiments will continue to circulate. Is it to prove "entropy"? Everything is consumed and dissipated in the universe? Is it intended that we continually hone our minds to become Siddhartha?

As for whether Grandpa is Henry's father, I think, it must be. Before my grandfather's death, my grandfather imagined that Henry was his daughter. My grandfather was busy apologizing and even confessed his daughter at the end, not to mention that Henry had not had any clues about his father for so many years, and why did Henry's mother choose suicide instead of Escape the family with Henry?

Henry's mother gave birth to Henry because she also loved her grandfather. Her mother committed suicide because she couldn't stand the torture of such incest. If Mom didn't love Grandpa and Henry was Grandpa's son, why didn't she choose an abortion while she was pregnant and run away from the family? If Henry is someone else's child, why does Henry's mother stay at Grandpa's house and continue to be punished by Grandpa? Oh my poor expressiveness. I think my mother loves my grandfather.

People don't want to believe in the evil and unbelievable things in this world, and they're sure they won't happen.

They collected evidence to protect their three views from collapsing... They built a wall for themselves, a wall that kept the three views on the shelf.

It feels a bit like remembering Camus, and expressing "The Outsider" deeply. Any emotional experience has caused all kinds of senses to strike collectively because it was too sensitive.

Wisdom will be hurt, and deep love will not last. Meursault, who was tied to the gallows, finally came to his senses and told us that even if the senses of all kinds of emotions are reduced, we must know how to play on the scene, because we still have expectations for the future after recovery.

    A great movie that hits the heart and has deep meaning. The trivial and varied photography and editing fit the theme of existentialism. The lines and sentences are pearly, and the literature is very strong but not pretending to be profound. Brody's acting is so perfect that it is even more exciting than the performance in "The Pianist", which won the best actor! The film involves issues such as education, women's social status, suicide, etc., showing the extremely bitter side of life: absurdity, contradiction, loneliness, and nothingness. (9.5/10)

    "The Pianist" starring Adrien Brody before, with its melancholy and deep temperament, is still fresh in my memory. He is so suitable for such a desperate and sad movie. If one day the biography of Edgar Allan Poe or the biography of Kafka is made, I think he is the first choice. DL:

  • 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
