Colonial men and women, original sin and former sin, God's to God, Caesar's to Caesar. God said, burn her whip, tell your secret, and you will be saved. Caesar said: Me too.

The film was a bit long-winded, and I was a little tired after seeing it, but the skull by the bed still surprised me. I have to say that the front and rear shots in a paragraph are closely related. Hitchcock really understood the montage.

The episodes I have experienced for my lover always feel familiar, except for "Walking in the White Night" and the like, I always feel more like it, but I can't remember it.

Seeing the second half, Bergman covered his chest and shouted why God did this to us, inexplicably thinking of "The Scarlet Letter". Maybe because of the colonial background (one America and one Australia); the same unspoken secret; the same about how to redeem. But in this reunion movie, the characters' inner struggles are completely weakened, and they become puppets driven by the plot. Sin or forgiveness is purely external. The heroine's struggles over the years are inexplicable because of her neuroticism.

I really don't understand the Chinese translation of the title, but with this poster, it seems that I understand it and then I don't understand it. The common literal translation "Under the Star of Capricornus", I always thought of Rohmer's "Lion Constellation" before, and was awakened by the comments of my neighbors: Capricornus love? Help! I thought that according to the practice of Xi Fat, we should cut out some details and details, and then start from the second male Charles (or the male protagonist?) who lied and sent the male protagonist Sam (or the second male) to prison. Emotional reversal to the extreme. Otherwise, the previous flirting will not be in vain.

Under Capricorn quotes

  • [last lines]

    Winter: We'll be sorry to lose you, sir.

    Hon. Charles Adare: If I may say so, Winter, I'm sorry to go. Not a bad place. It is said that there is some future for it, there must be- it's a big country.

    Winter: Then why are you leaving, sir?

    Hon. Charles Adare: That's just it, Winter. It's not quite big enough. Bye, good luck.

    Narrator: In seventeen-hundred and seventy, Captain Cook discovered Australia. Sixty years later, the city of Sydney, the capital of New South Wales, had grown on the edge of three million square miles of unknown land. The colony exported raw materials. It imported material even more raw - prisoners, many of them unjustly convicted, who were to be shaped into the pioneers of a great dominion. In eighteen-hundred and thirty-one King William the Fourth sent a new governor to rule the colony. And now our story begins.
