Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


The soul is fire, and the body is its ashes.

——Inscription

Deep eyes. It deeply implies the law of pain. Bright neon lights and colorful lights on the wide road. The piercing siren at midnight makes people floating in the night sky in a trance and restless. This is the beginning of the story.

The first aid work at midnight and months of failure made him in a trance. The car passed through the open street, and the street name and task came from the walkie talkie again and again… The car kept shuttling. Busy midnight. Upside down life

“Clear! Clear! Clear!” The constant electric shock pulled the soul back to the body. I also believe that sprits leaving the body and not wanting to be pulled back. Old bock’s soul will look at his body from the window, waiting for the end, looking at the photos filled with grief in the room and the crying of his relatives, rather than being called back. Even if you play the music you loved in your life, how can you stay in the cold world for a short time and struggle again and again? Why should the soul be so imprisoned?

That’s the street where he grew up. In his eyes, it was full of ghosts. Wet pavement. Shaking lights. The gloomy eyes of passers-by. Ghosts wander around and are homeless. He always saw rose, rose in anyone’s face… The homeless young woman who lost his first aid opportunity because of his mistake. Her pale and mysterious face appeared on anyone’s face and stabbed in his heart.

“These souls are part of the work. There are ghosts in every corner more or less. The eyes of dead bodies, the cries of loved ones. All bodies leave marks. People close to the newly dead can feel it. I can bear it. What haunts me now is a more savage, unformed ghost. Homicide, suicide, overdose, condemning me for being there…” car accident, patient, Shooting, suicide, drunkenness,… So many souls struggle on the line of life and death. Waiting to be saved, or refusing to be saved.

He doesn’t feel well. Five to six in the morning, when he first found rose. She fell on the sidewalk, breathless. Accustomed to nightmares, he began to be haunted by ghosts when he was awake. All the patients died in their own hands, and their conscience was always restless. He drank alcohol every day to paralyze himself and ate very little food. Say to yourself that maybe the guilt will dissipate soon, and he will save someone’s life, so as to save himself; Maybe you will soon sleep like others.

Everyone is struggling. Those who want to die can’t die, but those who want to survive die. The soul struggled to leave the body, but was brought back again and again by the love of the family. He also struggled in his work full of guilt. Escape is useless.

“Put down your poison pipe. Put down your poison pipe and wine bottle. High heels and skirts, stock dividends… God said. If you find an innocent person, one is good, and I will forgive…” the noisy night of the city. Hopeless people. They argue, show off, fight… Keep bleeding in front of you.

“I’m beginning to understand that my role is not to help, but to witness. I’m just a mop to erase sadness. I just need to appear.” I like his words very much. Erase the sad mop, appear silently and silently, and then do your duty… It is helpless and powerless to witness the coming and going of the soul. In fact, people can’t control so much. He is not so superstitious about God, but he hopes that he can save the world like Almighty God, so as to save himself. This is just an ideal.

Walking on the night when ghosts gather. The fire of the soul goes out, leaving the ashes of the messy body. He was such a quiet mop that he gradually became frightened and detestable. “You need the help of the Holy Spirit!” Mark said so. Everyone is looking for some power to calm down. Is religion really so powerful for anyone?

It’s killing me seeing him fight like that. Mary said. Old bock’s soul is so stubborn. He is a fighter. Whether he is alive or on the edge of death, he is always struggling with his own opinions. Mary hates to see others tied up. I almost want to loosen the rope that tied my father… Mary is another story. “Nuns and drug addicts are no different to me.” Taking drugs is an escape. Hurt yourself and indulge yourself. Stop taking drugs and go back to reality. The world is still the same. “It’s great to be drunk, but it’s terrible to be sober,” Frank said.

After taking oasis medicine, he had hallucinations. A speeding vehicle. Innocent dead people. Flashed before his eyes. The souls reached out to him for help from the bottom of the earth. And he saved them one by one like Almighty God. He saw rose again. Their first encounter. She died in front of him again. Rose, my name, Rose. She said her name weakly. Her face was slightly puffy on the cold street corner with light snow. Expect to survive, but still die helplessly. He looked at the bloody ribs hanging. Scream

The city is burning! He said. He couldn’t sit down quietly and enjoy a cup of coffee. Just because rose’s ghost is always watching. He must save something. “The death toll soared, but their faces could not be seen from the smoke. Go back, sinners! Go back to drugs… Go back to gambling, use condoms… Go to divorce, sex clubs, drink martinis, go back to sexy wrestling, engage in politics…” he had to save something in this motionless city. (I always think that the high crime rate in the film is only a scene, not a theme.)

Back to the oasis. Red blood. Silver beating fish scattered all over the ground. The scene is fantastic. How difficult it is to survive. When almost everyone doesn’t care about your life and death, you tell yourself that you should live. In this evil and beautiful city. “I keep thinking about how tough my father was. Now I know he had to be like that, to make us tough. Cause this city, it will kill you if you’re not strong enough. ” Mary said.

“No, the city treats everyone equally, and no one is spared.”

He saved the drug dealer, mouth-to-mouth artificial respiration, saved Noel, who was as dirty as a beggar, and let old Bock, who was endangered 17 times, leave peacefully. Rose finally calmed down in his heart. Mary hugged him. He slept so soundly for the first time

Life and death are just a line. People still have to go on wherever they go. Fight hard and be responsible for the souls of yourself and others

Elmer Bernstein’s music in the film is very good, the elements of black humor make the film less depressing, and Nicolas Cage’s performance is very good. I read it and felt a lot, but it was written in a mess.
