truth, goodness and beauty

Such anti-three-view behavior and psychology should have been matched with the same anti-three-view picture. As a result, Varda literally made the anti-three-view story into a film full of color, sunshine, love, tenderness, and selflessness. , Inclusive, the most genuine and beautiful movie. At the same time, Varda's experiments with color and editing are quite bold. When Francois went to his lover's house for the first time, Varda used 6 or 7 back-and-forth edits to repeat the expressions and emotions of the two when they met each other. The experience is quite memorable. After Francois's wife drowned, when Francois picked up his wife's body in grief and indignation, Varda also used several repeated clips to continuously express Francois' emotions and actions. Her use of this editing technique in the two most important stages of the film also reinforces François' psychological changes and story twists. When Francois and his lover were talking on the bed, the combination of a large number of partial close-ups and texts was quite the meaning of "Hiroshima Love". Varda's experiments with color are also quite crazy. Whenever Francois and his lover and his wife appear in the picture at the same time, they will use red, yellow, blue and other colors to transition. Such rich colors give the movie a soft and warm temperament, and with the emotional, soft and romantic love words in it, it is so wonderful and simply happy.

The story is simple, Francois has a loving family. His wife is a tailor and he is a carpenter. They often take their children to the countryside for a picnic outing. And once at the post office, she met Yi Meimei, a female post office employee, and the two became lovers. Francois told his wife about his derailment during a picnic. In order to make her husband happy, the wife accepted this fact and expressed her love for Francois more. After a field battle, the two went to sleep separately. As a result, when Francois woke up, he found that his wife was missing, and finally found his wife who committed suicide by throwing himself into the river. In the end, the lover, Imei, replaced Francois's wife, and together with Francois, took the child to the place where Francois and his wife had a picnic, which is the place where the movie started...

Varda puts all the real, pure and romantic words in this dangerous, immoral relationship, obscuring moral principles. "If I met you first, I'd be with you, and it's normal for people who love to have sex with each other. But I met her first, married her, I loved her, and she gave me happiness; then I met you, You make me like, I love you too, I like both of you, this is happiness above happiness." This is what Francois said to his lover, a kind of innocent love that does not insert morality, how can one not let people Tears flowed down my face.

But this is immoral after all, and the wife's suicide is a horrific fact. This is an immoral trial, a cold torture. Francois "killed" his wife, even with his incredible ability to speak. When a lover ascends the throne, this is the truth of love. One person changes another person, and happiness overwhelms sadness without stopping.
