A painter is seen painting a person who is naked. However, the person is a skeleton and so there is no actual nudity aside from bare bones. Comedic.
A character changes a word in a song to make it appropriate for “children present”, implying that the line was about how “her (knockers)…drag on the floor”. Kids won’t understand it, but adults will get the joke.
It is mentioned that Ernesto De La Cruz’s music caused people to fall in love with him


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


Miguel’s great grandfather abandoned his family and broke up the whole family in pursuit of music. And grandma Zeng repaired the family by making shoes, and handed down her ability to make shoes.

From then on, the family banned MIG from touching music in order to prevent him from becoming like great grandfather.

One day, Miguel found that his great grandfather was Dracus, the God of songs. At the same time, he had no intention to come to the strange world of the dead. He needed his great grandfather’s blessing to return to the real world.

In the process of looking for Dracus, MIG found that ektor was his great grandfather. That year, Dracus poisoned ektor and plagiarized his achievements.

At the end of the story, MIG returned to the real world smoothly, and the whole family finally began to support MIG’s music dream.

If you unfortunately learn the plot before watching the film, you may feel that the film is too old-fashioned and at most mediocre. But reading the text version of the plot introduction is a completely different experience from watching the movie.

Pixar turned corruption into magic again, making such an old-fashioned theme of “pursuing dreams” touching and without affectation. Although it is full of routines, it is so excellent that people can’t feel the routines, which makes people cry and still linger. Not surprisingly, this is the best animated feature film at the Oscar next year. Even if it fails, it is also the best animated feature film of Oscar in my mind.

The film tells the story of the family’s obstruction to MIG in an exaggerated way. They forbid MIG to touch the music and keep saying it’s for his good. They announced that MIG could make shoes and learn his ancestral skills. It seemed like a great wedding. In fact, MIG was not interested at all.

This is an old topic. Parents must not impose their ideas on their children. The promising doctors, accountants, businesses and so on you think are your own dreams. You can’t help children choose their dreams. They should have the right to choose their own life.

This is like a rabbit giving a carrot to a fish. What you think is good is not necessarily what others want.

These are only the most superficial meanings of “journey through the dream seeking circle”.

Pixar’s cartoons are always full of metaphors, which convey the correct three views through clever metaphors.

For example, MIG needs the blessing of his family to return to the real world. It means that children need the support of their family. If you can’t get the support of your family, the child will be like a dead person. But what children need is their family to bless them to realize their dreams, not their son to inherit their father’s career.

Another example is that the dead need people to worship before they can cross the bridge and meet their families again. It is a metaphor to remember the dead elders, their souls will rest in peace and bless you in the underworld; Forgetting their late elders, they become ghosts.

As the saying goes, a man dies twice. The first time he stops breathing, he dies biologically; The second time was when the last person who remembered him forgot him. At that time, he was really dead, that is, the “ultimate death” in the film.

Blessing children and worshiping elders are often mutual. Elders support children in pursuing their dreams. When children grow up and become people they want to be, they will naturally be more grateful to their elders; Elders impose their dreams on their children. If children do things they don’t like all their life, they will naturally hate their elders.

The brilliance of “journey around the dream” is that the film does not say that pursuing dreams must be wrong, and we should listen to our parents; Nor does it say that pursuing dreams must be right. We should pursue dreams regardless of everything, but dialectically analyze dreams.

It’s right to engage in music, but it’s wrong to abandon your family because of it; It’s right to devote energy to music, but it’s wrong to plagiarize others’ achievements and poison partners by any means.

Playing music can be supported without violating the law and morality and harming others. It is not advisable to betray family and friends and kill chickens to lay eggs.

Dracus really deserves to be despised and scolded, but there is nothing wrong with music. What is wrong is not music, not pursuing dreams, but abandoning family and committing crimes. Parents should prevent their children from leaving the family and breaking the law, but they should not prevent them from pursuing their dreams.

As for ektor, the film also revealed the answer. In fact, he didn’t abandon his family. He was poisoned when he was ready to go home.

While talking about the pursuit of dreams, the journey to the dream does not forget to convey the theme of family. After all, family has long been the standard of Pixar cartoons. It has to be said that now the theme of “family” in the film is too rampant, and the audience has long been aesthetic fatigue. To satisfy the audience, we must innovate.

“Journey around the dream” boldly tries to reverse the routine and multiple reversals, and uses various techniques of the film to perfection, so that the audience can’t see any traces of design, and the whole film flows without intention.

The film first tells how hard Miguel worked to find Dracus and finally succeeded in reuniting his grandparents and grandchildren. If the movie is over at this time, it’s too ordinary.

When Miguel was about to get his family together, the film quietly told the audience Dracus’s dirty history of success. At this time, the film has reached the level of suspense.

The director’s goal is obviously more than that. It’s for Oscar. So, when ektor said his daughter’s name was coco, he not only pointed out the title of coco, but also revealed the suspense that ektor was Miguel’s great grandfather. Before watching the film, I thought the title of “coco” was taken casually. After seeing here, I found that coco is a very important foreshadowing and detail.

When ektor and MIG said “we are a family”, a series of emotions poured out in an instant, such as the emotion of the truth, the joy of reunion, the happiness of family reunion, the bitterness of recognizing our ancestors, the relief of a false alarm, and the feeling of recovering from the loss, which suddenly brought tears to the audience. Even the roughest tough man must be full of tears.

“We are family” has long been a cliche. We have heard this line in too many films, but the journey to the dream is really made very well. When we hear this old line again, we will still cry.

The technique adopted in the journey to the dream ring is similar to Hitchcock’s “one wave higher than another”, which is reversed many times, the dramatic tension is continuously enhanced, and the tone is never out of tune. When the rhythm rises to the top, the film reaches a near perfect state.

The tears of the film must be paved. MIG and ektor have been together for so long, with cooperation, differences, generation gap, misunderstandings, sharing weal and woe, contradictions, and finally dispel their old grudges after learning that they are a family. Under the sufficient bedding, the film is particularly moving.

The second teardrop was that after Miguel lost the photo of ektor, grandma cocoa filled up the missing photo. Ektor was not only sound in soul, but also reunited with his family in the underworld.

Originally, I thought that the plot of ektor’s photos left in the water was to deliberately create a tragic atmosphere in order to educate Miguel to face death and let go of the past. Unexpectedly, grandma also kept the remnants of the photos.

Many directors deliberately shoot tragedies in pursuit of artistic attainments. The reputation has gone up, but the audience will be more or less sad. The journey to the dream ring first gives you a tragic ending and a complete reversal. When you cry into tears, it brings you warmth and achieves the effect of tears in laughter. It is really clever for a film to have both tragic beauty and comic family fun, while everyone is happy and unconventional.

After all, film comes from life, but it is higher than life. It doesn’t have to be close to reality, it doesn’t have to be very sad, but it can also give people comfort and hope.

Some people say that life will experience three growth: the first is to find that you are not the center of the world; The second time is to find that even if you try hard, there are still some things you can’t do; The third time is when I know there may be something I can’t do, but I still try my best to fight for it.

In order to avoid ektor’s burning jade and stone and stop being childish, MIG did not hesitate to sacrifice himself and was willing to accept the request of Zeng Zeng’s grandmother to “stop touching music”, but went back to offer ektor’s photos, which was his first growth; He tried his best to lose the photo of ektor, which was the second growth; He awakened grandma’s consciousness by playing the guitar and indirectly completed the photos. It was his third growth.

After three times of growth, MIG is no longer the stubborn and rebellious child. He can distinguish between black and white, understand music dialectically, and his family finally reconciled with him.

When Granny Zeng blessed Miguel, she withdrew her words that he was not allowed to touch music and only asked him to “never forget that we are a family”. The living elders also began to understand and support MIG. As long as you don’t abandon your family, we will always support you to do what you like.

Of course, Dracus is not heinous. His unscrupulous behavior in order to dream is not desirable. He is too extreme and extreme. If he can pursue his dream without violating the law and morality, and always take care of his family and friends, it is positive.

As he said:

“Music is not only my work, but also my life.”

“No matter how hard life is, I still have my guitar.”

“I’m tired of asking for permission. I don’t follow the rules. I want to follow my heart.”

“Stick to your dream and try to turn it into reality.”

In addition, the music of “journey around the dream” is refreshing, the painting style is exquisite, grandma Zeng is dancing while avoiding villains, and the world of the dead is extremely beautiful… It can be described as “perfect”. Thank you for giving us all the beauty.

“Journey around the dream” gave me a deep feeling. I once thought I was the protagonist in the film.

I have loved movies since high school, but I have been opposed by my family. They think watching movies has no future and is purely a pastime.

I’m as helpless as MIG. As MIG said, “if I play music, my family will be mad.”

For my rebellious behavior, my friends and colleagues made a lot of sarcasm, saying that I was not filial and that I wanted to kill my parents. But at least I dare to pursue my dream, and they don’t even have the courage to go on the road.

Since September last year, I insisted on publishing film reviews in Douban. Finally, in May this year, the current editor threw me an olive branch. I can finally engage in the film industry. My daily job is to watch movies and write film reviews.

Seeing that I can make money by watching movies, my family gradually began to understand me and support me. I can not only support myself through hobbies, but also send money to my parents every month. Why not?

I thank myself for my perseverance and perseverance. I have finally let myself live the life I want.

As fashion designer Mark said:

All our diplomas, certificates and awards can better explain what kind of person you are than choosing how to live.

In the journey to the dream ring, MIG fought all the way and never gave up. Finally, he got his due reward, and his family finally began to support his dream.

This is his story, my story, and perhaps yours.
