I went to watch “My Sister” last night. The actors performed very well. I cried in a few places, but most of the crying was not because of moving, but because of helplessness. In the words of my girlfriends: Life is too difficult. The sister in the film, An Ran, faces the confusion of whether to raise an “unfamiliar” younger brother after losing her parents. Of course, this is only a superficial confusion. In essence, the deep confusion in her heart is “Do my parents love me or not?” Therefore, from confrontation and reconciliation to mutual dependence with her younger brother, it is actually a process in which she confirms that her parents love themselves. Therefore, An Ran’s “difficulty” is not in raising her younger brother, but in whether she can smooth out the damage her parents have caused to her in her memory, and whether she can find evidence of her being loved in this kind of damage from the original family. Because a person who lacks love is often unable to truly love others, just like An Ran in the first half, she cannot feel the kindness of others, and is unwilling to accept help from relatives, and her boyfriend’s care is not so much in her opinion. important. She is trapped in an “escape” plan. The postgraduate entrance examination is not so much a way for her to realize her dreams, as it is a way for her to escape from her native family. But the sudden death of her parents had actually shattered An Ran’s purpose of fleeing in a certain sense, and the appearance of her younger brother only helped her confirm this more clearly. On the surface, the end of the film An Ran gave up the goal of self-realization, but in fact, she has recovered her true self, because her younger brother replaced her parents and gave her the purest love and dependence, which made up for the love of An Ran in her native family. Missing. Whether it’s my brother’s favorite meat buns, my sister’s taste is the same as my mother’s, or my brother’s heartbreak when he can’t find his sister in the subway, they all help An Ran awaken the attachment to his parents in the depths of his memory, and related issues. The love from her parents for her. This love may be too little, far from enough for An Ran to build up enough sense of security, but the appearance of her younger brother gave her another chance to love and be loved. Above, I think it is what the director wants to express. However, because the film too much shows the plot of Aunt Fudi and the patriarchal family, it successfully draws the audience’s attention to the wrong path of unnecessary sacrifice to women. Although these plots were sensational enough and earned the audience’s tears, they greatly dispelled the profound connotation of the film, allowing the film with a hopeful 8.5 points to get just over 7 points. Therefore, including myself, I don’t like this film. I could have discussed the conflict and reconciliation between the original family and self-realization in more detail and in-depth. The result turned into a dogmatic and clichéd second-child ethics drama, especially It is the ending of the film. It is really supported by the actors. The same plot and scene have appeared in many TV series… I didn’t see it. Okay, just say that.

There is nothing to criticize about acting. You can say that its theme is novel and meaningful, but it really cannot be called a good movie. The director’s narrative rhythm and shooting techniques are worrying. After 127 minutes of repeated pulling and pulling, I felt a deep sense of exhaustion while sitting in the cinema. The magic of the movie is that it has a non-linear view of time. It is not necessary to show all the things that happened in detail, but pay attention to the benefits of the point. The 4-5 times of sending and receiving can actually be compressed. It’s enough to tell a story in 90 minutes in this movie, instead of forcibly pulling out the protagonist again and again to show the fetters of siblings. The best line in the film should be aunt, although not much ink, she can really glimpse her whole life in just a few words. Thanks to the director for not after she said, “Mom did not tell her to cut the watermelon to my younger brother alone, and I still can’t let my sister know”. The long reminiscence scene pulls back and forth to express the tragedy of the aunt, thus retaining the audience’s unique imagination of the aunt’s life. , Stand up the character. The role of the younger brother is actually a bit strange to me. Sometimes I feel that the screenwriter seems to have a good understanding of children’s psychology. The younger brother runs behind his sister and wears bad shoes. He kicks the shoes to attract the attention of the sister. Like that, my niece used to do it when she was a child. However, in the later stage, I forced to make ginger tea with a well-behaved and sensible mind, and I felt that it was not something a child could do. The role of boyfriend feels like a proper tool in the play. It feels that removing this thread has no effect on the expression of the main theme.

In addition to sister Zifeng’s acting skills can be called classics, this play itself is really grandma Liu’s footwear! The plot that can be performed in 90 minutes itself has been stretched abruptly to more than 130 minutes. Many branches are pulled out on the timeline, and they repeatedly narrate some broken thoughts. The plot of adoption and take-back has been repeated four or five times over and over again. Doesn’t the director know the truth about the whole story, the failure and the exhaustion? Four or five times of repetition is really exhausting and exhausting! In addition to the lack of coherence on the timeline, many of the characters in the play are also interpreted for the sake of interpretation. In addition to the role of instrumentalists, they are not close to real life. For example, the heroine’s boyfriend is completely a persona of a tool person. If you remove this character, I feel that the story will not be affected much, and the character image of the alcoholic driver is not full at all. The only thing that is full is that the aunt was created. The simple pen and ink description did not produce those large-scale memories. The gradual change in thinking allowed the image of the aunt to stand up, leaving a lot of room for the audience to imagine.

Lai Zhihu is looking for the opinions of movie friends. This movie doesn’t touch me much. Sister Zifeng’s acting skills are so good that I can’t say anything, but there are some characters or plots in the movie that make me feel unreal, such as my sister’s love for five. The young boyfriend’s personal settings, such as the driver who loves to drink and was hit by the hostess’s parents (giving me an illusion of hypocrisy), such as the younger brother giving brown sugar and ginger water to the dysmenorrhea sister. The only plot in the movie that made me cry was that the pregnant woman with epilepsy wanted the boy to keep giving birth. Maybe this movie is indeed in line with the current second-child policy, but it makes me feel that there are too many things the creators have to express: patriarchal, second-child policy, sibling relationship… The theme of the story is not clear, and the truthfulness of the plot needs to be considered. These are my small opinions. I can only say that China’s ability to direct stories needs to be further improved.

I’m watching this movie, it’s really embarrassing.. The lines at the beginning do not have a sense of substitution, and they are not like Sichuan dialects. Then the characters and transitions are so strange, the characterization is incomplete, so that some actions made by the characters make people feel particularly abrupt. (・_・; I don’t know what the director wants to emphasize in the end. When the hostess uses a computer and her brother is naughty and harassing her, she doesn’t say a word to warn her brother, but changes positions twice, and then the brother continues to be naughty. Then she reacted by continuing to change positions…(・_・; [Then she brought out her brother and said, “Dad said everything at home is mine” and she threw out the real estate certificate] And her boyfriend, similar to mom Bao Nan (probably not) is that kind of thing, he has to show it in the front scene, and there is no connection with this in the back, and I don’t know why [Here I am talking about the interspersion of the scene, there is no complaining about the boyfriend’s mother. Baoha^ ^] When the hostess questioned the drunk-driving person in kindergarten, at the end of the question, in terms of the emotional point, I felt that she wanted to show empathy to the hit-and-run drunk driving person, and said that you see that the child does not have a mom or dad. Suddenly Here comes a sentence, why should my brother want me to take care of him to emphasize his emotions…Anyway, there are many contradictory points. Like the heroine, he has no feelings for mom and dad, but when filming memories, mom wants to protect the girl. Mainly, it will conflict and be unnatural. I feel that the director’s shooting methods are not mature at all, and it can’t be regarded as a movie worth watching.

It feels very uncomfortable to watch. After watching the whole movie, the only moment I was touched was when the hostess cut watermelon for her: when she was young, she gave up the opportunity to go to college for her younger brother to study in technical secondary school, and because the hostess was forced to come back from Russia to help take her because of the birth of the hostess. In a sense, she is the real mother of the heroine. Although she did not give the heroine a good living environment due to other force majeure (“being used as a sandbag by my cousin since childhood, and taken a bath by my uncle”), she did not give the heroine a good living environment, but the review begins. She looked at her attitude towards the younger brother of the adoptive hostess. Her selflessness and sacrifice are completely voluntary and unreserved. The eldest sister is like a mother. It reminds me of my second aunt who was admitted to university in the 1980s. When she posted the red list in the village, she silently ran to take a look and then returned home, telling my grandfather sensibly that she would not go. After reading it, the tuition and travel expenses are too expensive. It is better to become a skilled worker after graduating from high school. The high salary can better subsidize the family. Later, when my dad learned to work as a lathe (my dad also dropped out of high school to work to subsidize the family because of his family situation at the time), she brought it out. She gave up her future and dreams, and she was the most typical of her sister’s self-sacrifice in that era. But such a situation is undoubtedly the most obvious evidence of patriarchy and feudal remnants. When encountering difficulties, why must the sisters or women make sacrifices first? What’s more, the sacrifice of the heroine in the film is simply imposed by others. The change of personality before and after comes too abruptly. The absolute is formed in the shadow of the gray childhood when the parents were forced to give birth to the second child and even deliberately lead to drowning. Self-independent personality, after a few deliberate plots, Ma Shenghua is selfless and “moved”, it is as if the Russian matryoshka in her aunt’s house without a base is no longer complete. In my opinion, the final ending is a bit moved for the sake of being moved, and for the sake of consummation and consummation. After the only house has been sold, the sister regrets to take her brother away from the adoptive family with good family status (here is the half of the house payment and the bank card was lost without taking away?), the film finally did not explain whether the sister She went to Beijing to take the postgraduate entrance examination, but at that time she had also resigned from the hospital. She had no job, no housing deposit, little brother, and no relatives or lovers to rely on (aunt barely counts one, but the situation at aunt’s house is already very bad). Do they really have the ability to live a good life? For the postgraduate entrance examination, I broke up with her boyfriend who had been in love for five years. For the sake of postgraduate entrance examination, I sold the only house left by my parents. For the sake of the postgraduate entrance examination, I cruelly found an adoptive family for my younger brother (although his younger brother will contact him later, but during most of the film, the heroine wants to abandon him is very strong. For example, the kindergarten questioned Yaya’s father. Duan play). It can be said that the postgraduate entrance examination was all the heroines at the time, it was a desperate fight, and the ultimate dream to try to abandon love with infamy. How did the firmness accumulated over the past ten years suddenly disappear? Saying that you want to ride the wind and waves, why suddenly you want to eat Mala Tang all the time? The film really does not give us enough plot buffer, but if anyone except the heroine is willing to make a little sacrifice, her fate will not fall to such a point, does she deserve to sacrifice all her own for more than ten years Is the best time to raise her brother alone and pursue his own life? As she said herself: Life is short, and there are things that are too late if you don’t do it. “Where her uncle takes the child more reliably, but where his boyfriend is more resolute (for example, because she is willing to accept living with her brother), but wherever the adoptive family is more tolerant of their meeting terms (such as meeting once a year) Yes, it is cruel to prevent her from appearing at all, but this is understandable from the perspective of fostering the relationship between adoptive parents and children). It will not let her fall into such a situation. It only requires others to pay something that is not enough. In the matter of sacrifice, she has been beaten up by the concept of “patriarchy” for more than two decades. At least she will not be deprived of the respite that she has finally won. It is worth mentioning that I looked through the film materials and found that the screenwriter and director They are all women. Regarding the ending of the film, they have an interview with their own interpretation on Douban: Why do you have to put her in a miserable and helpless situation to increase the emotional touch? Why do we have to let her face the more difficult life alone? Why can’t other people sacrifice and sacrifice together to minimize the pain caused by the accident? Is it true that all sisters in similar situations deserve to sacrifice themselves to make it happen? Brother? Is it my sister or an angel who is a saint who burns himself? I asked you why?? Recalling an editorial many years ago, it was said that most of the propagators of patriarchal thought were women themselves, as women. After being oppressed and bullied by this kind of thinking since childhood, they are more afraid of their children suffering from this situation again, so they desperately want to have a boy, taking the birth of a boy as the ultimate way to change their destiny of sexism, and in that era, they gave birth to a girl all day long. Depressed, and even spilled the grievances and anger I had suffered on my daughter. It was too sad, when the victim became the perpetrator, so many self-movements without emotional support were added to it. “My Sister” There is a chance to become a masterpiece like “Why Home”; but it failed to break out of the barriers, it was only left on the surface and lacked sincerity, so it turned into a sigh of reminiscence of that era.

Went to watch “My Sister”, good fellow, I called the good fellow directly, and it exploded me. This movie is jumping repeatedly in the false reflection and returning to the vicious circle. Let’s talk about the line of father-daughter relationship first. The parents who have been talking about so long prioritize sons and swear at their daughters, making self-esteem daughters pretend to be lame in order to apply for a second child, and tampering with their daughter’s wishes to make them full of ambitions. She earns money early and stays close to home, but can’t do much with this son. In the end, the daughter played by Zhang Zifeng actually said in front of their grave, “I worked so hard to make you say that my daughter is not bad.” Is this Stockholm syndrome? Are you arrogant? Why do you want to show something in front of them and get their approval? This is a trap, an endless abyss. The core idea of ​​”Preferring sons to daughters” is to think that men can “pass generations”. This is a remnant of feudalism that has no reason at all and no one can crack it with any logic. How do you get their approval? You have no choice but to become a man. Either you work hard to give everything to the men of the clan and get the sentence “Is a pretty good woman”. why? ? Let’s talk about the sibling line. For an older sister who has never met, and an adoptive family, the logic of “sister and brother loves each other” simply doesn’t hold water. May I ask why my sister did not choose this at all, and the blood relationship that brought her endless pain ruined the dream of working hard for so many years and ruined her own life? Even the younger brother’s reluctance to bear this sister’s logic is totally untenable. I haven’t seen you a few times. When I see you, you don’t have a good face. Why would I be begging to follow you? The show started to use the metaphors of “Malatang” and “Surfing at the seaside” and the metaphor of eating Mala Tang first and then surfing, trying to make a sloppy look, and when I was confused, I felt something wrong. I haven’t been so angry when you change to another profession. The elder sister in the play is taking part-time postgraduate exams, elder brother, she is studying medicine. This younger brother is 6 years old. When he is raised to be able to take care of himself, can the elder sister have any development in this career path? ? The movie pretends to be a happy end, pretending to leave an open ending, but we all know that this is just another vicious circle where “aunt” sacrifices everything for “dad”.

The movie’s score dropped from 7.9 on Douban to 7.3 now. The reason for this has a lot to do with the ending of the movie. Although the creators have always emphasized that the ending is open, the bias of the ending is so obvious. Summarize the general plot first, so as to help understand the statement that the ending bias is obvious. After sister An Ran went to college, her parents secretly gave birth to her younger brother An Ziheng without telling her, but both parents died in a car accident, so this younger brother who was still in kindergarten was sent to her sister, even though the siblings had never seen him before. Over. However, the responsibilities of the relatives were shrugged off. Everyone felt that the older sister should bring up his younger brother, but the older sister was going to Beijing for the postgraduate entrance examination and did not want to raise this strange younger brother. In the beginning, because no relative wanted to raise the younger brother, the older sister asked someone to adopt him. Before finding an adoptive family, the siblings lived together temporarily. In the process of living together, the elder sister and younger brother kept conflicting. She hated him and resisted him. But later, the younger brother suddenly became mature and sensible, and after doing a few things that cared about his sister, the sister was relieved of everything, and then the relationship between the younger brother and the younger brother became better. It is undeniable that the improvement of the relationship between siblings makes sense, but what is unreasonable is the apparently biased ending: in the ending, the sister did not sign the agreement to adopt the family, but escaped with the younger brother. Doesn’t this mean that you prefer your sister to raise this younger brother and then sacrifice yourself to grow up? However, before that, my sister went to Beijing for postgraduate entrance examinations and pursued her ideals, but she was very firm and strong. She was determined to break up with her boyfriend who had been with her for 5 years and had trouble with relatives. How can it be said that change will change. If the above article can be opposed with an open ending argument, then the sister’s understanding of her parents is really outrageous. You know, this elder sister did not receive much parental care in her childhood. In order to give birth to a second child, her father asked her to pretend that she was lame, but the lie was exposed and An Ran was severely beaten by her father. And when I went out to play when I was young, I almost drowned when I was swimming and saw my parents come for help. I was bullied when playing with my children and my parents didn’t come to help. In short, I was ignored. Even, her sister was fostered to her aunt’s house for a time, and her parents were not around to take care of her. Moreover, at her aunt’s house, she was bullied by her cousin and taken a bath by her uncle… In short, her parents did not give her enough care and love to make her treat her. The parents felt resentful, so after going to college, she never asked for a penny from the family again, but made money to support herself. By the way, she originally reported that she majored in clinical medicine, but she was tampered with by her parents without authorization and changed to a nursing major. It can be seen from this that in the heart of her sister, she has a deep grudge against her parents, but, after the death of her parents, she would thank her parents in front of their tombstones, thank them for letting her learn to be independent? ! ! Oh my god, this is too ridiculous. Isn’t this equivalent to the example of “enduring hardship for the sake of enduring hardship”? You could have learned to be independent in a happy childhood, but your parents created misfortune for you and forced you to learn to be independent. You actually want to thank them and reconcile with everything in the past. How could this be possible, even if it could not happen? A girl in her early twenties. You must know that the instinct of human nature is hard to let go of bad things and don’t care about good things. The impression that a person does a bad thing to you is far less impressive than the other person’s doing a good thing. Sometimes, even if the other person does ten things that are good to you, you will not necessarily forgive him. The bad thing that I did to you. What’s more, are you still the parents, or the parents who alienated you and took advantage of you? Just look at the example of Sun Li. The empress can only repay her grievances with virtue after experiencing life events. To be continued (to be continued is that the younger brother who was innocent and ignorant at first suddenly became mature and sensible). Because it is impossible for a child to suddenly become so sensible, and you are not the “Pupu” in “The Hidden Corner”, let alone the “Yisheng” in “The Gift of Room No. 7”.

1. The acting skills of the whole crew are bursting, and the future of Zifeng’s sister is promising. Teacher Zhu Yuanyuan deserves a best actress. Xiao Yang, hey, is the same as the one pulled out from the Sichuan Mahjong Restaurant (。ò ∀ ó。) 2. There is a paragraph in the plot, It was the younger brother who asked: “Why didn’t my mother give birth to me earlier?” My mind snapped: Letting go of the second child is 2015. Look at the passersby in the movie, wearing a mask, in the post-epidemic era. Whether intentionally or not, the age and experience of the characters in this movie are synchronized with the times, which is value in itself. If I were a student thirty to fifty years later, I would write a short essay “The Impact of Opening Second Childhood on Social Psychology-A Perspective of Law and Literature” based on the text of this film. 3. There is a lot of controversy on the Internet. I think this movie itself is designed to present a lot of dilemmas, and I am not prepared to give answers. The sister’s, the younger brother’s, the aunt’s, the uncle’s, the tool man’s boyfriend’s, the eclampsia’s pregnant woman… are all predicaments, and all beings suffer. And my aunt removed the base of the matryoshka, “The matryoshka may not be placed in the same cover.” If a fish is unhooked, it will be free. 4. It is worth a visit. Bring paper towels for those with low tear points. I really didn’t bring enough, grabbed my little cloth bag…

Personal opinion, to be honest, I am very, very angry after reading it. The film lasted more than two hours, which was equivalent to giving him more than two hours to tell a story. The result was so sparse that almost nothing was explained. The tears during the movie also made me sick. It seems that the screenwriter knows how to guide the emotions of the audience, combining various elements such as sacrifice for younger siblings, taking risks for the sake of having a boy, and patriarchal male dilemma. Character. Each role is given a period of time for performance, as if to say: Hey, there are so many characters for you to empathize, can you choose one of them? You can always cry, right? In addition, don’t talk about acting skills. In some scenes, it can be seen that Zhang Zifeng is still relatively young and unable to master it. Generally speaking, it needs to be tempered, but it is definitely not “astounding”. This overwhelming draft makes I think the Chinese entertainment industry is really getting lower and lower quality.
In summary, I am a sb after watching this movie

Not good-looking, the protagonist An Ran is not standing, and the relationship with the younger brother is completely unclear. When the younger brother is making trouble, he is completely different from when he was a relative before. May I ask, this character is a personality. Split? The role of boyfriend is completely meaningless, and the presence and absence of this role has nothing to do with the whole plot. Uncle is even more outrageous, and said he looks like An Ran’s father? Are you as brain-dead as his dad? An Ran felt guilty towards his dad in the end (perhaps some?) It’s really outrageous. Isn’t it wonderful to die? How old is An Ran, and An Ziheng has such a good adoptive family. If he doesn’t rush to go to Beijing for the postgraduate entrance examination, why is he dragging him? The whole drama highlights an outrageous one. The screenwriter and director seem to have not graduated from elementary school. The plot is illogical and it is written wherever you think. The last sentence, can I refund money with the ticket stub? I wasted two hours in exchange for disgusting.
