Life on those times

What I liked more about this movie are the twists and turns of fate, of life. The story spreads on different decades, and is very compelling to watch the characters, how they change, not just physically, by getting older, but internally, their mindset, their attitudes, their expectations. And society also changes, decade by decade...

Living a lot of times makes no sense

The movie "Alive" gave us an opportunity to understand history, the steelmaking, the Great Leap Forward, the great criticism, the Cultural Revolution, history is a dead thing, it can't speak, but you can see it as long as you open your eyes, Naturally, you can get more thinking from it. Often, only history is the most powerful because it is real, even if you close your eyes, you cannot escape this existence. In the words of our party, the times are advancing, the economy is leaping, the people 's living standards are skyrocketing, and the national power is skyrocketing, but we can no longer see such movies because we have forgotten in the prosperous material life. Own dignity. Wang Xiaobo said, "For thousands of years of Chinese history, few people have had their own personal dignity ... The state of Chinese etiquette, all dignity is defined in terms of the whole and the relationship between people, one is not in the unit, not at home, It does not represent the country, it does not represent the nation, and when it exists alone, it is not a person but a piece of meat. " . Fugui in "Living" is not such a meat, he gave up all his dignity, lowered three and four, murmured again and again and again and again and again, Fugui couldn't tell what his behavior was doing, What is revolution, what is capitalism, what is dignity, he does not know, this person, just to survive. In China, everyone is calling for a happy life, but most people are just struggling to survive, fighting fiercely with the cruel reality, doing too much without dignity, and gradually becoming numb, So that later he could not remember his original intention but just wanted to live a stable life. "I follow you, just want to live a stable life." Jia Zhen has been repeating this sentence in the movie. There is a family and some people are better than anything. The hardships of fate have not destroyed this family. Duckweed drifting in the wind and rain, crumbling, never falling down, facing the cruel reality, Fu Gui and Jia Zhenwei silently endure these unspeakable pains, tearing off the self-esteem in front of their faces, and then continue to live, this is the most Chinese The most ridiculous and simple moral character. It has always been thought that we can only see ourselves and the people around us, even further away, we can't see clearly. Even if we are looking for dignity, how can we treat others as people? It's all a body, just a thing.

Compared with novels and movies, what is more distressing is that the text on the screen is only the history of sixty years ago, and it never returns. In reality, the time we live in is still every moment. In such a scene, it is similar to the tragedy of the rich and the abandonment of dignity, only to survive, the economy is leaping, the spirit is receding, and the people are more indifferent. Fart, the bastard is still that bastard. All dignity is magnified endlessly in the country and the nation. On the other hand, the self-esteem of the people is gradually being wiped out. The only increase is the powerless pity and hopeless anger. "Alive" records the truth of history, and the Chinese on the screen make each of us present into heavy thinking. Fu Gui's ups and downs are vivid in his life. Whether it is a novel or a movie, he is restating a heavy topic. , That is: there is no happiness or misfortune in life, life is just alive, living quietly, just living like an object. After watching the movie, I couldn't help but ask myself: In the past sixty years, do we continue to live like this, do we continue to live like this, or die.

After watching this movie in tears
