Andy Lau and Hisaishi let out, 6 powerful people joined, this is the most underrated movie this year!
There is a famous Bole in the entertainment industry, he is the famous Uranus superstar - Andy Lau.
At that time, domestic films were in decline, Andy Lau watched many talented new directors change careers because they had no dramas to film, and countless film and television industry workers could not eat because they could not work.
Andy Lau was secretly determined to do his part to save the building. So, he launched the "Asian Rising Star Director Program" to invest a sum of money in talented young new directors.
Ning Hao relied on Andy Lau's investment of 3 million yuan to make his debut film "Crazy Stone", and since then, he has become famous.
Everyone knows that Wu Jing helped Guo Fan when he was shy, but few people know that Andy Lau is also Guo Fan's lucky star.
When "The Wandering Planet" was first filmed, no one was optimistic, and Chinese make a sci-fi film, it was a fantasy for them.
And Guo Fan is also a ghost, using his three-inch tongue to fool a group of staff and investment, but finding actors has become a big difficulty.
He found another way, saw his favorite actor, and said that this movie starred Andy Lau, and Wu Mengda was fooled in the first place.
Therefore, at the end of "Wandering Planet", Guo Fan will especially thank Andy Lau, and Andy Lau smiled and was relieved when he knew this, and then gladly accepted the invitation to join the main creative team of "Wandering Planet 2".
Now, Andy Lau is once again in the snow, and the object is still an unknown young director - Feng Zhaoyu.
For this film, Andy Lau personally wrote the lyrics and sang the promotional song.
And with him to help Feng Zhao, there are two other bigwigs.
One is Japan's national treasure-level musician - Jean Hisaishi, familiar with "Sky City", "Spirited Away", "Howl's Moving Castle"... Both are music supervisors by Jean Hisaishi.
Another big guy is Li Pingbin, the Taishan Beidou in the photography industry, the photography of "In the Mood for Love", "The Sun Also Rises", and "Assassin Nie Yinniang" are all handled by him, and almost all kinds of photography awards have been won.
Andy Lau, Jean Hisaishi, Li Pingbin, three industry bigwigs, the immortal combination that directors want to cooperate with, all help a newcomer director, what is it for?
After watching this movie, I finally found the answer - Chinese family affection is what touched them.
Feng Zhaoyu's film "The River Does Not "Go Out"" sets the story in a small southern city, typical of three generations living together.
The son and daughter-in-law are busy working every day to earn money, and their feet are not on the ground, and they don't even have time to eat breakfast at home.
Grandson Zhang Xiaosong is in adolescence, secretly photographing beautiful female classmates in the class, writing love letters, changing grades, and rebelling to the end.
Only grandpa Zhang Dachuan, idle at home, every day pondered how to repair his scrapped car, and because of this, grandpa has become the family's jack-of-all, housework is responsible for him, breakfast and dinner are taken care of by him, even grandchildren break into trouble to ask parents, and finally he temporarily takes up the job.
The seemingly idle old man is the loneliest one in the family.
He mentioned again and again the glory of fighting on the front line when he was young, which is nothing more than the current life is not going well, so he just looks back on the past.
It's a pity that no one in his family wants to listen to his brilliant history. The family disliked him for being stubborn and nagging, but they did not understand the loneliness and sadness of his old age.
A phone call, breaking the peace of life, the old comrade-in-arms died, called Zhang Dachuan to attend the funeral, the old urchin carried his son and daughter-in-law to pack his bags, but was arrested by his grandson who had just taken summer vacation.
There was no way, so I had to leave for Beijing together.
In this way, the two generations who did not understand each other embarked on a ridiculous journey, and the two people also did not speculate for more than half a sentence at the beginning, to mutual understanding and mutual acceptance after that.
Grandpa and grandson have three scenes, which are impressive.
The first scene is when the two drive from Tianjin to Beijing, and the old man stubbornly does not want to open the navigation, so he takes out a paper map to show the way.
As a result, it was open, more and more off, and finally found a commissary, and the cashier told him that he was driving in the wrong direction.
At this time, the old man looked reluctant and asked his grandson how to use navigation.
For Zhang Dachuan, paper maps are the most familiar way finding tool, and high-tech navigation, although convenient, is like a heavenly book that he can't understand for an elderly person his age.
He does not want to expose his ignorance and timidity, and wants to defend his self-esteem in front of his grandson in the way he knows best.
In real life, such old people abound, and we rejoice in the convenience that high technology has bring, but often overlook that there is a group of old people who have been abandoned by the times.
He needs the help of his family and more patient teaching to try to keep up with the times.
In the second scene, the long-distance bus of the grandfather and grandson broke down halfway, and the two of them chose to walk to Beijing on foot one after the other.
The summer in North China was as hot as sweat, but fortunately the two of them passed by a large watermelon field.
Zhang Xiaosong was thirsty and planned to steal a watermelon to eat, but just picked up a melon and was drunk by his grandfather.
He thought that he would be scolded by his grandfather, but he did not expect that what the old man said was "this melon is not ripe yet".
After speaking, the old man started to pick his own melons, chose a large, sweet and watery one, and the grandfather and grandson gobbled it up, and then lay down on the watermelon field satisfied.
This picture is so beautiful that it can't help but remind people of Takeshi Kitano's classic film "Kikujiro's Summer".
In the third scene, the grandfather and grandson finally arrived in Beijing after many hardships.
Early in the morning, the old man was packing his luggage and planned to wear a prepared military uniform and go to bid farewell to his old comrades.
But strangely, the military uniform disappeared, and it turned out to accidentally fall on the car.
The old man was not angry, and sowed the evil fire on the eldest grandson, and cursed and cursed, and the eldest grandson turned his head and just left, and the old man found the breakfast he bought early.
The old man chased out, wanted to apologize but couldn't pull his face, so he had to approach awkwardly, and then pushed breakfast into the arms of his eldest grandson, praising the breakfast he bought.
Chinese-style families seem to be like this, encountering contradictions and conflicts, rarely take the initiative to apologize and say the "sorry", only use the most subtle way, such as "eat", to hand each other the steps, euphemisms to express their apologies.
This is a unique Chinese culture, implicit and restrained. No matter how flamboyant the wanton feelings are, they will also be transformed into the most low-key and tactful expression.
And it is precisely this implicit and timeless family love that has moved Andy Lau, Hisaishi Jean, Li Pingbin, and countless audiences.
So far, the film has scored a high score of 7.7, which is better than 73% of family films.
And such a good result, several leading actors are indispensable.
The first thing to praise is that Mr. Yang Xinming, who plays grandpa Zhang Dashan in the film, a national first-class actor, has 37 years of film experience, and has long tempered him into an out-and-out old drama bone.
This time, he was accustomed to a golden supporting role, and finally ushered in his own movie actor.
He also lived up to expectations, portraying a stubborn, hard-mouthed, but soft, nostalgic old grandfather into the wood.
In addition to Yang Xinming, there are many powerful people in the film.
For example, Tu Songyan, who plays Zhang Dashan's son, is worthy of being a national first-class actor, although there are not many scenes, every second is not wasted, playing a middle-aged man who is struggling in real life.
There is also Yang Tongshu, who plays Zhang Dashan's daughter-in-law, and Ren Yingying in "Supreme Red Face" has become the childhood shadow of countless people, which shows that her acting skills cannot be underestimated.
This time, played a supporting role, every detail is handled properly, delicate and appropriate, people can't take their eyes off.
There are also Dai Lele, Lin Yongjian, national first-class actor He Saifei... There are wonderful performances in the film.
The superb acting skills of the 6 powerful people connected this ordinary but beautiful story, which made countless audiences sigh.
Unfortunately, the schedule of this movie is really pitiful, on June 10, there was only one cinema in the entire city of Chengdu, and the time was still 10 a.m.
In other third- and fourth-tier cities, they can't even see the shadow of the movie.
Therefore, as of now, the film has been released for 17 days, with a box office of only 2.769 million and a share of 2.709 million.
In fact, the movie is really vastly underrated.
It did not invite traffic stars with fan appeal, but only invited many actors who acted steadily; It has no ups and downs in the storyline, but only tells the small things of life in Chinese families; It doesn't have enough explosive publicity gimmicks, but in the picture of still water flowing deeply, it brings the audience a little thinking and a healing.
Such an unpretentious film is precisely the scarcity of Chinese films.
I sincerely hope that the cinema can give more films, so that such a warm and healing movie can be seen by more people.
