The director uses the complex feelings of women to express the ordinary life of ordinary men and women, as well as the misfortune hidden in ordinary life. It is a beautiful and bleak business card. Mozart's music and poetic images throughout, with a heavy Renoir-esque impressionism. In particular, the director uses a symbolic technique that reflects the changes in the characters' hearts with the changing scenery of the four seasons, which is very delicate and moving.
The cheating man has the love of his lover and his lover at the same time, and is immersed in happiness. When the lover knows that the man has a lover, even if the man does not reduce his love and responsibility for her, he still chooses to drown and die. After that, the lover ascends smoothly. But the happiness that once had lost its luster on the male protagonist's face. Agnès Varda uses bright and strong colors to express happiness through colors. The superposition of love seems to be a win-win situation from some angles, but the selfish nature of love is destined to not be shared. Behind the short-lived happiness is the exclusive affirmation of love. With the Divine Notes, the equality of love and happiness has strictly limited conditions.
