return of humanity

War is the greatest destruction of human nature. In the times of peace, I see no amount of praise for the times of war, but I can't understand what people were thinking at that time. In this film, human nature is returned in the secluded Dongmo Village. The first half of the movie is light-hearted and witty, and the idea of ​​the corns turning into popcorn in the air is really a stroke of genius. But in such an era of national madness, awakening means greater pain, and the humanitarianism in the heart is trampled. Whether it is painful bystanders or brave resistance, it will bring devastating results. They chose the latter.
When the dust settled and the deceased was covered with fresh snow, I could not help but shed tears when I recalled those plain and happy days in Dongmo Village again.
