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


Recognized as the greatest film in the history of film, it is the first screen work made by the genius Orson wells at the age of 26. A newspaper died alone in a huge house. A magazine reporter collected different opinions from many people in order to explore his real face, but he still couldn’t put these materials together into a result in the end. Kane, the protagonist in the film, deliberately shoots hurst, the king of American newspapers.

The theme of this film becomes complicated and confusing due to the development and description of the plot. Everyone can find their own point of view. But there is a consensus that it destroys the vision of a dream. It mocks many Faustian figures in American society and sells their souls to get the desire of the whole world. Although it is the success or failure history of a big man, it is a miniature, covering the people who pursue desire and satisfaction in the whole material world. It is also a film that has been discussed most frequently in film history.

As far as the film is concerned, “Citizen Kane” is not flawless. It can only give 70 points in terms of exquisite structure, but wells can get more than 90 points for his strength, courage, ruggedness, entertainment and personal experience. In terms of skill application, the photography technique of “depth of field lens” is still quite new from today’s perspective.

Plot introduction:

Based on William Randolph Hearst, an American news giant at the beginning of this century, the film shows the life of a newspaper king with novel artistic techniques.

Kane died after leaving the last words of “rose bud” in the sauna manor. A young reporter was commissioned by the press to investigate the meaning of these words. Learn about Kane’s youth experience and his mother’s difficult life experience by consulting relevant recall materials.

Bernstein, chairman of the newspaper, introduced Kane’s rise and the past events of creating public opinion and making the country involved in the Spanish American war in 1897. Kane’s former friend Lilan told about his marriage to Emily, the niece of the president of the United States; His encounter with his two wives, singer Susan and his defeat in the presidential election. Susan introduced the changes of her and Kane’s life from lover to husband and wife in the nightclub; With the support of Kane, she wanted to be famous in the singing world. After losing, she lived in seclusion with Kane in the Wonderland like sannadu manor.

It was not until he finally burned Kane’s old furniture that he found that the word “Rosebud” was originally engraved on the sledge he cherished in his childhood.

Detailed plot:

In 1940, a deserted manor in chenadu, Florida, was submerged in the dark night. Only the window of one room was still lit. This was the bedroom of newspaper King Charles Foster Kane. Kane lay peacefully on the bed. The glass ball crystal in his hand flashed a wonderful scene: snowflakes falling on a farmhouse

Kane’s old and low voice sounded in the silence: “rose buds!” Then his hand slowly released, the glass ball fell, and the magical snow scene in the glass ball was disillusioned.

Kane died, so desolate that he had no relatives except nurses and servants.

Kane’s death has busy the press. The news of his death was reported on the front page of the newspaper, and his comments were mixed. Some were called “patriots” and “Democrats”, while others called them “warmongers” and “traitors”. People don’t know what kind of person Kane is. Kane’s last “rose bud” aroused the interest of reporters. What does this sentence mean? They speculated.

The reporters decided to visit those close to Kane, those who love him and those who hate him. Thompson, an experienced editor, undertook this arduous task of investigation and visit as a reporter.

One drizzly night, Thompson came to a poor nightclub in Atlanta.

The nightclub was filled with smoke. A woman in her fifties sat alone at the table drinking. Her hair was dyed light yellow and she was wearing a cheap evening dress. This was Kane’s second wife, Susan Alexander, who performed twice in the nightclub every night. Introduced by a local captain, Thompson sat down at Susan’s table and wanted to talk to her, but Susan shouted angrily and asked him to get out. Thompson had to leave bitterly to end his first visit.

Thompson decided to consult the archives of Kane’s guardian, Walter Taylor. In the diary of the late Mr. Tycho, Thompson finally found the record of Tycho’s first meeting with six-year-old Kane:

Kane’s parents used to be the owners of a small inn that provided accommodation. One year, a tenant who had no cash gave Kane’s mother a property contract of a seemingly worthless gold mine. Unexpectedly, this magical waste paper really brought wealth to the Kane family in the future. After becoming a rich man, Keith’s mother entrusted financial tycoon Walter Tai to manage her property and act as the guardian of little Cairn.

When Mrs. Kane and Mr. Taylor signed the power of attorney in the living room, little Kane was throwing a snowball outside the window. For a moment, he stood in the snow with a sled and watched his mother, father and the strange Mr. Taylor coming towards him. When he knew he was going to live with Tyche, he took it by surprise to hit the guardian in the stomach with a sled. That night, little Kane followed Mr. Tay on the train.

Before Cairn came of age, all his property was managed by Tyche’s Bank. When Cairn reached the age of 25, he was in charge of it himself. During his tenure as guardian, Tay bought a lot of family property for Kane and bought the New York inquirer for him. That’s how Kane started running the newspaper.

At the newsroom of the New York skyscraper, Thompson visited Bernstein, Kane’s general manager. Although Bernstein can’t solve the mystery of “rose bud”, he still knows Kane better.

That was in 1891. GERD lillant, a close friend of bethstein and Kane, helped Kane carry out a series of innovations in the newspaper running policy, from the title, layout to content, and the retail price was reduced from three points to two points. In 1895, the main competitor of the inquirer was the documentary, whose circulation greatly exceeded that of it. Kane managed to win over the nine capable editorial members of the other party’s New York branch, which suddenly increased the circulation of the inquiry and overwhelmed the documentary.

In 1900, Kane married Emily zhuerden, the niece of the president of the United States.

When talking about Kane’s personality, Bernstein said one thing: in 1914, Kane’s second wife Susan failed to perform an opera, but no one dared to write critical articles. Lee Rand, the drama commentator of the inquirer and Kane’s close friend, was in a very contradictory mood, but he wrote an article criticizing Susan in order to respect the facts. As he was drunk, he fell asleep on the typewriter. Kane saw the unfinished manuscript. In order to prove that he was an honest man, Kane completed the article for lilant in the most sour words in lilant’s style and published it in all newspapers. Subsequently, Kane gave Li Rand a check for 25000 yuan and dismissed Li Rand.

“Mr. Kane is a man who has lost almost everything,” Bernstein told Thompson

Thompson followed Bernstein’s advice and found lilant on the platform of a hospital. He looks very old.

When it comes to Kane, lilant thinks that “Kane is a man of great intelligence… I have never seen a person who can express such contradictory opinions… He doesn’t believe in anything except himself! In his life, he firmly believes in his beliefs, loves himself and doesn’t love others”. Kane and his first wife, Emily, had become almost exclusively at the breakfast table after two months of marriage, he recalled. Their relationship is getting colder and colder. Later, he met Susan. Susan is a single woman who works for sligman company. Her mother wanted her to be a singer. Kane was deeply moved by her beautiful singing, a small voice, untrained, but beautiful.

Kane, a newspaper magnate, has wealth all over the United States, but he is not satisfied with being an entrepreneur. He also wants to get involved in politics and run for governor ambitiously. Originally, Kane had an absolute advantage in the election, but his main opponent, capitalist Edward g. Rogers, forced Susan to write a note to Mrs. Kane, disclosed her relationship with Kane, and gave him a fatal blow by taking advantage of Kane’s private life. Kane lost the election.

Emily left Kane with her son and died in a car accident two years later. Kane and Susan are officially married. He accompanied Susan to Chicago and spent 3 million yuan to build a Chicago opera house for Susan. But Susan failed in her first performance.

Thompson visits Susan again. Still in the nightclub. Susan told Thompson, “I didn’t want to build this opera house. I didn’t want to sing. It was his idea… Everything had to be done according to his wishes. It was always. There was only one exception, when I left him.”

Susan still has a lingering fear when she thinks of the night of her first performance. In the audience hall, laughter broke out one after another. Susan said she would never sing again. But Kane said, “you have to keep singing. I don’t want people to laugh.” “What about me? I have to sing! Shh, I’m also being Shh, why can’t you just…” Susan replied painfully. Kane insisted, “you have to sing!” His ruthless eyes frightened Susan. She lowered her head slowly and gave in.

The inquirer advertised Susan, but none of this changed the audience’s evaluation of Susan. She felt that the audience didn’t need her. She was in great pain and swallowed a lot of sleeping pills. Fortunately, Kane found it early and agreed to let her leave the singing world.

Kane spent billions to build a palace like manor for Susan in chenadu, Florida. He and Susan lived in this unfinished palace, isolated and bored. Susan is very tired of this monotonous and rigid life. She yearns for the prosperous urban life. The relationship between her and Kane became not harmonious, and they often hurt each other with rough tone.

One day in 1928, they had a dispute over whether to invite guests for a picnic. Susan was no longer willing to put up with all this and finally left the suffocating manor.

Susan talked a lot with Thompson, but she didn’t know anything about “rose bud”. She suggested Thompson go to chainadu manor to talk to housekeeper Raymond, because he knew something others didn’t know.

At chanadu manor, Raymond told Thompson: after Susan left, Kane smashed everything in Susan’s bedroom sadly and angrily, and only picked up a glass ball with snowflakes in it, which was the glass ball Kane held in his hand when he was dying.

When Thompson was about to leave chanadu manor, he came across a pair of sledges that Kane had played as a child.

There is a rose bud painted on the sledge, and there are several words with half worn: “rose bud”. This is the sledge that Kane used to hit Mr. Tycho in the stomach.
