In domestic dramas, there is a genre that makes people sigh: women's dramas.
Starting from "Ode to Joy", this national drama genre has sprung up, and many popular films have emerged in one go.
2017's "Ode to Joy 2" won 22 billion views in one go, making the popularity of women's dramas reach its peak.
In the same year, "My First Half of Life", the ratings went all the way, and many discussions about fire, theft and girlfriends are still hot topics.
However, with the proliferation of routines and patterns in dramas, women's dramas have also ushered in a bottleneck.
In particular, all kinds of "dog blood dramas" and "pseudo-cool dramas" under the banner of women's dramas have dragged the reputation of the entire genre to the bottom, and people have begun to be full of doubts about women's dramas, such as "stepping on high heels and leveling the workplace", a phone call that shocks the stock market and other famous scenes, and even once became a representative scene of women's dramas.
That's it for women's dramas?
It's time for Qin Lan to make a move.
Last night, a "Splendid Turn" quietly started broadcasting on iQiyi, and although it was broadcast low-key, it rushed to the top of the soaring list overnight.
To be honest, the first thing that attracted me to open this drama was the protagonist on the poster, Qin Lan.
43 years old, other actresses can play the age of the new little flower mother, and they are still beautiful in the play.
She came to "tear the scumbag", which has a special taste.
The actors who played with her also acted well.
Little aunt Deng Jiajia, Zhang Junning, Wu Xiaoliang, Bao Jianfeng, Hu Ke... All of them have masterpieces.
Brushed 4 episodes in one breath and called out one word: cool.
Look at the big beauty fighting scumbags, cool!
Look at the working mother say no to the kneeling pleas of scumbags, cool!
Watch women fight monsters independently and cope with it. The pressure of work, the troubles of marriage, cool!
If women's life is a complex and difficult problem, women's drama is an equally complex combination volume.
So, women and female dramas, how can they complete a splendid turn?
01, women's drama is like spy war suspense, a play stands four characters, the beginning of the play
Compared with other women's dramas, "Splendid Turn" is relevant and full of rhythm. At the beginning, I will not talk to you about it, and go directly to the main course - fighting scumbags.
Sophie, played by Qin Lan, is a female bully with double business online, with beauty, money and a happy family, until the aura of a winner in life is torn open.
In the first three minutes, she found her perfect husband, suspected of cheating-
Women's underwear appears in the husband's bag, or is it not his own size?
Although the scumbag played by Zhang Junning quickly prevaricated on the pretext of the women's health products developed by the company, once the sixth sense of women is turned on, the scumbag will not hide.
Usually the opening scenes of women's dramas are mainly based on scenes of daily life, either showing the relationship between characters in life or showing women's workplace.
"Splendid Turn" is different, it cleverly blends "women's stories" and "suspense" elements, and even has a bit of spy combat intelligence as soon as it starts.
The next scene is a woman's workplace, and there is no time for cheating at home, and she has to deal with the mess of big customers coming to the door to ask about the crime.
Although she has long hair and is capable, her professional dress is dashing and handsome, but in front of Mr. Ding, who is making trouble, the heroine still grovels and calmly responds.
After some persuasion + throwing out the killer trick of the stolen plan, the matter was finally dealt with, and on the surface, the customer added investment. Some viewers say that domestic dramas are suspended, and it is so easy to engage in business?
But if you look down, it's really not so easy to make a career, and behind the small victory on the surface, it may be a trap deliberately set by the old fox in the workplace.
However, the heroine's skillful hospitality skills and superb public relations skills also show her foundation in the workplace.
In the workplace, she knows how to advance and retreat, has skills, and has come to this day by virtue of ability, not beauty.
A scene, the image of Sophie, a woman in the workplace, basically stands.
And the other heroine, An Ning, also appeared.
A traffic accident caused her and the heroine to have a wonderful encounter, and then she went to the heroine's company to apply for a female truck driver, which officially intersected the lives of the two.
The suspense buried here is: the first traffic accident, when the heroine's scumbag husband appeared, she covered her son's mouth for the first time, and it seems that she has known Sophie's husband for a long time.
The second time they met in the office, she glanced at the family portrait on the heroine's desk, and her expression was obviously unnatural. This naturally triggered the audience's speculation about the relationship between the two.
Even the heroine mistakenly thought that she was a commercial spy sent by the other party.
But then a supermarket accident made things fall into place, Sophie tracked Anning's mother and son, but accidentally encountered a theft of the child, looking at the child's vacancy for Anning who was chasing the gangster, Sophie finally learned the truth from the child's mouth: Anning did know Sophie's husband, but he knew the scumbag's lover - the rich man Qianjin Ding was long.
And the reason why An Ning knows the relationship between the two is also because Ding Manman deliberately disclosed his relationship with the scumbag in front of her and her son, to put it bluntly, it is to force the palace.
What a chain of games.
Around a marriage, all walks of life have gathered, some cheating, some forcing the palace, some guarding the door, some being stirred into the incident, inside and out, the undercurrent is surging.
The scumbag exposed his extramarital affair, laying the groundwork for the plot later: How will the heroine Sophie respond? Forgive him? Or strike decisively? If you want to shoot, should you hit the mistress, or the scumbag?
At the same time that the cool drama scene arrived as promised, four characters were also standing in the opening scene.
Sophie's atmosphere is calm, the scumbag's meanness and shamelessness, the tranquility is cheerful and direct, and Ding's arrogance and affection.
Start with suspense, break the game with women's stories, make the game in the workplace, and stand with a group portrait, this "Splendid Turn" has that flavor.
02, three attacks and defenses, high-energy stimulation, tearing scumbags cool, fast pace, this is called female cool drama
At the beginning of the story, a goal was set for the heroine: fighting scumbags.
And the next story development is comparable to spy movies.
In front of Sophie, there are three difficult questions.
The first is to confirm the scumbag's cheating object.
The second is to obtain evidence of the scumbag's cheating.
The third is to ensure that you are not damaged while getting the other party's cheating evidence.
Some viewers said why is it so complicated? Isn't it okay to know about cheating? The audience who asked this question obviously did not divorce themselves. In all divorce proceedings, the determination of the guilty party is the key to the property judgment.
In reality, it is useless for scumbags to cheat, and it is only useful to prove that scumbags cheat.
At present, the biggest advantage of the heroine is that she is in the dark, the scumbag is in the light, and the attack and defense and game between the two have also opened up the fight.
In the first round, the heroine attacked, tested, and took evidence.
After basically confirming from An Ning that Ding Manman was the object of her husband's cheating, she took her husband's hand and directly killed him in the gallery hosted by Ding Manman,
The painting is fake, the temptation is real.
The hidden murderous plot and verbal battle between the heroine and the third party, you come and go, it is indeed touching.
Ding Man brazenly demonstrated to the heroine: If you like it, leave a contact information, we can discount, and you can also - home delivery.
Good guy, are the third parties so arrogant?
And Sophie smiled faintly: Discounts are not needed, cheap and not good.
This temptation is cool, is it necessary to fight the grass and scare the snake?
Dante Manman is a third party who is not afraid of being beaten by the grass.
The temptation was only a prelude, and the heroine quickly opened the next step: investigation.
As with all spy battles, getting the real thing is the key to gaining an advantage.
A tracking capture, the fact that the husband cheated was finally recorded in the heroine's mobile phone.
Although the heroine's heart is like a knife, this round, Sophie won.
In the second round, the heroine attacked again and raided.
Since she can't ask the truth, the heroine simply turns the style, using the whereabouts and behavior pattern of the scumbag husband - using the time with the child to perfectly date a third party, and accurately deduce the time and place when he may cheat.
Then directly stage the marriage version of "Mr. and Mrs. Smith".
Carrying the suitcase directly to the door of the hotel where the husband is dating a third party, he sent a surprise generously, and it was logical to wait for the rabbit.
Although I didn't wait for the third party in the end, it was still cool to see the scumbag's frightened bird-like appearance.
Some people say that this is not done for nothing? Of course, it is not in vain, like spy war dramas, Chanei ghosts, not only fighting intelligence, but also psychological warfare, the best way to defeat the other party, is to make him nervous, once people are nervous, mistakes will be made, especially scumbags with ghosts in their hearts.
It's time for a decisive battle.
In the third round, the heroine is full of firepower, and the layout - please enter the urn.
A delicate design, the heroine created the illusion of her cheating, and also led her husband to the door.
Sure enough, the scumbag came up angrily,
Without saying a word, he directly pinched Sophie's neck, and the fierce look seemed to cause the heroine to die.
Until the sound of opening the door, the people who came in immediately petrified the scumbag on the spot - Ding Manman.
A 180-degree reversal, this time the advantage completely went to the heroine's side, Sophie sat down calmly, and gave orders like a hostess: sit down and talk.
All plot development is as the heroine speculated: the scumbag immediately exposed his true face in front of his lover. Then he couldn't be soft on the heroine's clothes, and simply knelt down on his knees, hugged the heroine's thighs and begged for mercy.
It really disgusted the audience - is there anything more unappetizing in the world than a scumbag kneeling?
Three rounds of attack and defense, although the scumbag is calm step by step, see the tricks, but the heroine calmly sets the game and eventually becomes the winner.
This intellectual edge, psychological game and verbal attack and defense are quite the shadow of spy war movies, and the two actors play very well, playing the psychological drama full of tension, and the face hitting scene is enjoyable.
One from asking for human life to kneeling and begging, a shameless greasy face is becoming clearer day by day.
A person soberly rejects PUA, purely relying on his own counterattack and counterattack, and the big mistress sets up a firm foothold.
And that's just the beginning. Next, the two heroines will also combine their swords, one relying on their brains and the other with their fists, to work together to deal with life's dangers.
In addition to forming the Shuangwen sisters who fight the heavens and the earth, helping Sophie deal with the scumbags, it also includes helping An Ning deal with the entangled and cheating overlord who is entangled with her.
A slay anti-slag war is coming, slapping, hitting villains, and full firepower. And a career counterattack also began.
In just four episodes, the story has been fully rolled out, and it is impossible not to look forward to the following plot.
03, Qin Lan Meibang, 4 powerful people performed together, and their acting skills were also stabilized
Of course, there is also a key to women's dramas, that is, actors, good actors can make the audience quickly enter the play, but bad performances will make people play instantly, no matter how good the plot is, it is useless.
The first to bear the brunt was Qin Lan.
Starting from "Yanxi Raiders", whether it is "Heirloom" or "All About Doctor Tang", Qin Lan is almost synonymous with middle-aged beautiful actresses.
And Sophie in this play, the most intuitive feeling to the audience, is still beautiful, the plot of encountering derailment Qin Lan will have a feeling of pity when I play it, coupled with Qin Lan's charismatic expression, Sophie's character is already visually very convincing.
What kind of bitterness does my sister want, she can always come out of difficulties, calm and arrogant, the shape must not be chaotic, and the aura must not lose.
But Qin Lan is also very accurate, tired of watching domestic dramas to shoot "professional women" is a high heel click to walk and lead the wind to the company to get angry and fierce routine, although Qin Lan in this play is also a strong woman in the workplace, but the opening scene is a bad thing.
Sophie deals with trivial but tangible things: customers are dissatisfied with business monetization, public opinion caused by gossip from peers, leaks of the latest beta version... These problems with a sense of reality exude a feeling of really going to work, and their faces are written: The old lady's house is full of troubles, but this class must be attended.
At present, the most scarce thing in women's dramas is actually the texture of life, and Qin Lan has worked hard to perform.
When it comes to the textbook version of the hand-torn scumbag scene, the acting skills are played naturally, and the eyes are all drama, and there is a majesty of an uncalled lioness.
And a scene that can't help but cry makes the characters more flesh and blood, and strong women will also have moments of collapse.
Other actors are also online.
For example, Deng Jiajia, who plays the female man Anning.
Playing this kind of female man role who can carry seven or eight large boxes on his shoulders, Deng Jiajia's appearance conditions are actually not strong enough.
But Deng Jiajia's acting skills make up for the shortcomings of the appearance well, and the capable one-size-fits-all short hair and cool dress, with the character's unique conversation, it seems very real.
Deng Jiajia's role setting is an independent woman who was deceived by scumbags when she was young and ignorant, an independent woman who was unmarried at a young age and had a baby, not highly educated, but able to drive a big truck and chase masked people, this kind of person is always chased by life, so he is walking in a hurry, speaks crisply and neatly, and does not say a word of nonsense.
Deng Jiajia performed the smooth profit of the role, and the force value was also very high, and a flying leg could kick the scumbag out of the car and sass until he had no friends.
One of my favorite scenes is when she beats her son who is wearing a motorcycle helmet and stalking her late at night, but in fact she is secretly protecting her, and the teacher says, "It's not safe for you to be alone at this late, what if there are bad people." ”
Deng Jiajia replied, then he was unlucky.
Such lines are both funny and characteristic.
There is also a detail that is exceptional, when most of the women at the bottom of the women's drama are still standing on the roof of the priceless courtyard to worry about tomorrow, Deng Jiajia's character will immediately think of asking for overtime pay because of Sophie's words, which is the normal thinking of the poor, and finally there is a not very rich screenwriter to write women's dramas.
There is also the scumbag played by Zhang Junning.
His first reaction to his wife's temptation was concealment and quibbling. But when it was his turn to suspect his wife of cheating, he went up and pinched his neck. After being exposed, immediately kneel down and shirk responsibility. What's even more incredible is the scumbag's quibbling: I hide from you because I love you!
This role is infuriating enough and typical - the husband thinks that keeping the way of the woman is all the wife's business.
And I cheated, but I am still willing to be a father, willing to hide that I am a good father and a good husband, and you are a slut.
After discovering that he cheated on him, the heroine gave him many opportunities, as long as he is willing to confess, the heroine will think that this marriage is still saved. But until the last moment, the scumbags chose to lie firmly, which is another typical cheating man mentality: as long as I don't admit it, my wife won't know, and life is under control.
Zhang Junning completely performed the shamelessness of the scumbag, and the body management also made the scumbag scumbag convincing, I think more scumbag characters will find him in the future.
The one who played well in the old drama bones was Feng Hui.
This veteran actor who has played well in "No War in Beiping", "War Changsha" and "Langya List", this time played the heroine's big customer Ding in the business field.
One is looking for the heroine to pick a thorn, and the other has long planned to put the heroine together.
Two micro-movements, just play a picky customer into three points, annoying, really powerful.
The most exciting thing is that he trotted all the way + piled up laughter to keep up with the boss played by Bao Jianfeng, and played an old churro in the workplace too vividly with a smile.
It is precisely such a real and substitutionary character that makes it easier for the audience to empathize.
Lines don't need to be dubbed, tears don't need eye drops.
Watch these good actors play in the same frame. Just one word: cool!
04, women's dramas have reached a bottleneck, I hope that women's cool dramas can highlight the encirclement
Today, women's dramas have almost entered a "dead end".
In addition to the female group portrait living on the same floor, it is female girlfriends who deal with the great changes in life together. Women's dramas seem to be naturally unable to innovate and have fallen into routines.
But "Brilliant Turn" has a somewhat new meaning.
First of all, it integrates female drama and suspense genre elements, organically combines the dark war and spy war styles in marriage, and can see both the thrilling face and the reality inside.
Secondly, this is a cool article that is completely in line with the mood of the moment.
The coolness it provides is multi-dimensional and multi-faceted.
Maintain a strong excitement in the plot of each episode, find cheating, test the mistress, layout tearing, pregnancy, the public debunks the scumbag, revenge... One by one, stimulated down, there is no time to think about bugs.
The ultimate essence of the show's coolness is: women make their own decisions, and they should do it. Never let go of scumbags, never forgive.
Sophie, played by Qin Lan, pretended to get back together with the scumbag, and also opened a party, and then disclosed his relationship with the mistress in front of everyone,
The hearty smile after revenge, who doesn't feel comfortable after reading it?
But the heroine of this drama will face practical difficulties.
The most direct is the child.
Some viewers hate the setting of film and television dramas that it is not good to divorce if you have children. Although the scumbag cheats, lies, transfers property, and pinches his mother's neck, he is good to the child, so the child blames his mother when he hears that he wants to divorce, and he also argues to jump into the river, saying that his mother's divorce is vexatious.
Looking at Sophie's daughter, I was so angry that my liver hurt, and I had to watch Anning and sensible son return blood, but if I think about it, reality is like this.
Similar incidents on the Internet, the first thing that netizens think of is also harsh on women, this is the reality, everyone is used to thinking that scumbag prodigal sons are very valuable to turn back, right? Persuade and do not persuade, men are willing to go home.
Therefore, the heroine must solve these cruel and unsolvable practical problems in order to truly win the scumbag.
Or in other words, it is not difficult to tear up scumbags, the difficult thing is how to retreat from the complex marriage.
Some viewers said why didn't Sophie tell her daughter the true face of her father? But in reality, many mothers are afraid of hurting their children and choose to hide.
Whether these practical contradictions can be solved determines whether the heroine can break through successfully.
This process contributes a strong dramatic tension, but I don't think it's bloody, because reality can really meet, after beating scumbags men and women do not let divorce, leave or not?
As the contradictions advance, we see more than just a war of tearing scumbags.
It is also a variety of marriage and life problems faced by women.
When the heroine is a living, real and established woman, the story is truly moving.
For now, the plot of the female protagonist fighting the scumbag, and the interweaving of various clues, make "Brilliant Turn" have enough dramatic tension and can also attract the audience to chase it all the time.
As the plot unfolds, the story is not limited to refreshment, but also involves the original family, divorced family reorganization, children's education and so on.
And these are closer to the life of every urban woman.
The audience will unconsciously substitute: If these broken things let me stall, how can I solve them?
This drama is like a puzzle game, and there is no single answer to life.
Every woman is looking for her own way to clear the level.
Not all of them are Sophie, but people can experience similar predicaments.
When domestic women's dramas, no longer regardless of 3721, only regard "independent women" as marketing words, and regard the famous scenes in the play as a hot search carnival that pleases the market, it is possible to usher in a splendid turn.
I also hope that the choice of the two heroines in the play will make more women understand: no matter at any time, domestic violence and scumbags are not worthy of forgiveness.
The best way is to let this waste dregs disappear from your life forever.
