1. Many people say that Peerless Yan Ji (Farinelli, 1994) is the title of one person, the story of two brothers, I think, he is still the relationship of three people - the protagonist of the story, Farinelli, brother Ricardo, and music Master Handel.

2. Pay attention to the first meeting between the music master Handel and the protagonist Castrat Farinelli. Handel tried his best to "taunt and scold" - here shows a kind of cherishing and cherishing talent. Such a scene is similar to the manner in which a comedian "disciplines" a homeless child at the dinner table in Pájaros de papel (2010), and the babysitter "slaps a slap in the face when the child makes fun of someone who jumped off a building when parents are not at home" (2013). "Slap in the face", in The Record of a Gentleman in the Long House (1947), the shop proprietress made the bed-wetting orphan "penalty stand" to think about it, and they all showed an attitude of acceptance and acceptance, treating strangers as if they were her own.

3. Handel is different from other people who are full of praise and praise for the protagonist Farinelli. The music master wrote an invitation letter to ask for a meeting with Farinelli, and when they met, he sneered at him, saying that he : "You're just throwing your voice to sing that crap? Without real music, you don't exist, you're just a weirdo!" The first education the music master gave him was so shocking that he For his own existence and his own immortality, there is an opportunity to face, explore, think, settle, and sublime again, and this is the beginning of his artistic career from juggling in the alleys, after his brother castrated him in childhood. The second biggest turning point in his life, which is why he seemed so unhappy in the next few years, when his singing made a sensation in the world and was applauded by the audience.

4. Farinelli got rid of his older brother who only wanted wealth and Lida but hindered his development. This older brother had given him a terrible and wonderful gift - castration to preserve his beautiful voice. Farinelli has been hiding under the soothing evasions of his brother - his brother lied that he had to be operated on due to an accidental fall on horseback, and promised to write an extraordinary opera for him to sing as compensation. When Handel ruthlessly opened up this scar, Farinelli had a profound insight into people, human nature, human feelings, life, and destiny. At this point, his singing was truly captivating and genuine. Touching - he sang "Let Me Cry" Handel wrote for him on stage:

Lascia ch'io pianga mia cruda sorte, E che sospiri la libertà! Il duolo infranga queste ritorte de miei martiri sol per pietà, Si, di miei martiri sol per pietà. Let me cry for my miserable fate, and I long for freedom ! Have pity on me, let this pain break the chains that persecute me, yes, have pity on me! Grant me a merciful liberation.
