Eros love – sex Trilogy

Eros literally means sexual desire. It comes from Eros, the little god of love, a child born by the God of war and the God of love in ancient Greek mythology. He is in charge of sexual desire. Those who are shot by his golden arrow will fall in love, while those who are shot by his silver arrow will hate their lover for no reason. Because of his naughty personality, people in the world are made to cry and laugh by love. In Freud’s psychoanalysis, he named the life instinct the Eros, and the so-called original desire is “all the instinctive forces contained in the word love” in his definition. It can be seen that Eros has the meaning of life in addition to representativeness and love.

Eros is composed of three independent films, directed by Wong Kar Wai’s hand, Steven sudeborg’s equilibrium and Miguel Angelo Antonioni’s the dangerous thread of things. The stories of each film are different, but the themes are the same as love and desire. “Hand” tells the story of having objects but lacking love and desire, “equilibrium” is the self suppression and vent of desire, “the dangerous thread of things” shows the picture of the separation of love and desire. The film industry has only developed for more than 100 years. It is a combination of image, sound and text. The following is an appreciation of this work according to the elements of these three film narrative languages.

Hand — the expression of Chinese poetry in films

Directed by Wong Kar Wai, the hand is the only Chinese director among the three directors, and its film performance technique is also deeply influenced by Chinese art. With the metaphor of its film language, in the performance of music, image and dialogue, it reveals the integration of the artistic conception of Chinese poetry with Wong Kar Wai’s films and its close connection with its theme.

The story of the hand takes place in Hong Kong in the 1930s. From the perspective of the tailor Xiao Zhang played by Zhang Zhen, the story tells the life of his desire object, Miss Hua, a social flower decorated by Gong Li.

He likes to use China in the 1930s and 1940s as the background,

The dim yellow tone has almost become a classic mark of his films, stained with mottled and dizzy colors

The shape is full of romantic atmosphere. There are only three scenes in the play. Almost none of the scenes in Miss Hua’s home, the tailor’s work place and the hotel where Miss Hua stayed after she was down have pale lights. Instead, the sources of light are weak wall lights, desk lights, sunlight from the outside into the room, yellow lights illuminating the tailor’s clothes car, or the hotel does not have enough power, In exchange for the dark yellow color, it is the background color of that era; Miss Hua, as a social butterfly, finally became a prostitute. She became a logical sign of desire in the film. She was in the first act of Xiao Zhang’s understanding of her and masturbation for Xiao Zhang, the close-up of Xiao Zhang’s picture, the hand painted with bright red nail polish as the middle, just as red color gave people the impression that passion is a symbol of desire here. There is often the use of color in Chinese poetry. If the articles are colorful, it is considered that the words are vividly expressed as scenes. Film, as the medium of scenes, naturally has the ability to use color to achieve this.

Ancient Chinese poetry is often limited by the number of words and sentences. Therefore, in the use of language, it is advocated to be concise and comprehensive. This is a short film, but it is necessary to narrate a story. Therefore, when it is necessary to explain the character image or background, it is the most effective way to spell the scenery into image fragments by montage to explain the background, such as the scene of Xiao Zhang’s first visit to China, For another example, when Miss Hua moved to the hotel, she also used mobile lenses in different directions to shoot things in the field, and the intersection between reality and the images reflected in the mirror. When Miss Hua appeared in a lower class hotel with a gorgeous image, there was a strong conflict within the frame. Like Chinese classical poetry, it likes to piece together scenes, create atmosphere and explain stories, and the combination of images of different nature also has a special expressive effect (Wang Zhimin, 196).

The voice over commonly used in Wong Kar Wai’s films, that is, the voice that has nothing to do with the plot space (bordewell, Thompson, 374), often appears in the hand. The film was inspired by Shi Zhecun, a novelist of Shanghai’s new sensibility school, in his work “the dancer at dusk” in the 1930s. He explained the ups and downs of the dancers through telephone conversation. Therefore, it is common to replace painting with sound. Mr. Zhao, a little white faced raised by Miss Hua, appeared four times, each time “only hearing his voice, not seeing his person”; From the unilateral telephone conversation between Lao Jin, the old tailor, and miss Hua, we can hear the rise and fall of Miss Hua’s status; In the scene of Xiao Zhang’s first visit to China’s house, only groans were heard. The heroine appeared six minutes later. Some poems caused suspense by implicit expression.

The film name Eros is the theme of the hand. Therefore, the hand wants to explore the issue of lust. Lust scenes are indispensable in the film. Only one of the six scenes about sexual meaning has a naked scene. At most, it only hears groans or sees men and women wearing clothes and touching. The most “passion” is to expose men’s hips, The most metaphorical thing is that Xiao Zhang touches Miss Hua’s cheongsam with his hand. If he doesn’t read the above, he can have nothing to do with sex. This is in line with the implicit style of Chinese poetry.

In the hand, Miss Zhang Huahua begins to have love from desire, but finally suffers from lustless love. In the end, Miss Hua can only repay his long-term love in the most distant way. In the interview, Wong Kar Wai said, “for me, although Eros’s theme is related to lust, I don’t think it’s the key to be naked or not. The most attractive thing in Chinese culture is to leave blank space. The more blank space there is, the more imagination there is. Oriental audiences tend to think in this way.” Therefore, the name “hand” represents love without desire, which is quite appropriate.

Equilibrium — the balance and symbol of reality and dream

Equilibrium is directed by Stephen suderburg. His works are known for their boldness and experimental nature. He is good at striking a balance between business and art. The Title Equilibrium means proportionality and balance. Coincidentally, in this short film, the structure is parallel, It highlights the theme – the balance between reality and desire in the film language and symbolic meaning. Different from the hand, this film does not describe a complete story with plot, but is used for the internal psychological activities of the characters, depicting the dream and mental state of the characters, which is similar to the French Impressionist films (bordewell, Thompson, 542).

The story tells that Robert Downey is often troubled by the same spring dream. He asks psychoanalyst Alan Aijian to treat him. Although the title of the film is called balance, according to binary opposition, balance means that there is a danger of imbalance. When the protagonist confesses to the psychoanalyst, he said he lost my equilibrium, which represents the theme – the imbalance between reality and dream. Psychoanalysis is influenced by Freud’s theory of psychology, which says that dreams represent people’s subconscious, which is the result of ordinary suppression of desire, that is, libido representing the original desire. Equilibrium adopts a parallel structure, and the director’s intention is also seen in the aspects of characters, story themes and scene scheduling. We can see the representation of denotation and connotation in the symbolic meaning of Freud.

For advertisers troubled by Qimeng, the treatment method is the free association method. He said that Qimeng began to appear when the work progress was affected by the wig of one of his colleagues hall. He was extremely nervous. It can be seen from the many considerations when the psychologist advised him to sit in the toffee chair that the depression on family and work is reflected in the dream, which has several symbolic and troubled images, The first is the handbag of the woman in the dream. In Freud’s analysis of the dream, the handbag represents the female sexual organs. He dare not try to open the handbag, which means that he is troubled by his wife’s refusal to have any sexual behavior with him. The woman in the dream and his wife are the same actor. According to him, the woman in the dream is to block the invasion of external troubles for him, which means that he is avoiding external troubles, He wants to have a good rest. When he finally opens his handbag and finds that there is a mirror inside, it means that the source of desire and depression comes from himself. He is the one who causes his troubles.

The purpose of free association therapy is to attract the patient’s attention to his psychological feelings and eliminate the patient’s critical attitude, so as to hope to visit the patient’s subconscious (Wang Zhimin, 40). However, the psychologist in the film neither pays attention to the patient’s confession nor shows impatience with the patient. At the same time, as a helper to unlock the desire to dream, However, he entered his own desire. He tried to communicate with the patient outside the window and avoid contact with the outside world (telephone). His desire came from the people outside the window, but the audience could not know what was outside from the image. This was a betrayal of the film’s act of exposing the patient’s dream as much as possible. His job was to spy, just like the metaphor of a telescope outside the window, He can spy on the metaphor from the dream, but the real desire object can not be presented. Pay attention to the director’s casting. Hall, a colleague wearing a wig, is the same person as the psychoanalyst. Only one is wearing a wig and the other is bald. It symbolizes that the fuse of desire and the direction of trying to solve desire are the same person.

In addition to the fixed lens and black-and-white color of the scene of meeting with the psychoanalyst, the plots of the dream and the advertiser after getting up are all in swing lens and color, just as the directors of the impression theme school describe the character’s psychology with photography skills. In equilibrium, their viewpoint lens is spliced, focusing on the role, imitating the picture of the object seen by the lens of the protagonist’s perspective and distance, Using different lenses according to the protagonist’s state (bordewell, Thompson, 542), we can see the situation of the protagonist lost my equilibrium. Two parts of the film appear in black and white. One is to meet with a psychoanalyst and make a comparison with Robert’s dream in color. This dream is photographed in color with the later dream. The last paragraph is repeated outside the street in the form of free association. Paper planes are thrown from the room. There may not be a direct logical relationship between images. In this way, The director skillfully broke the binary boundary between dream and reality. The so-called reality, dream, desire and subconsciousness are actually indescribable.

The dangerous thread of things — the dynamic separation of love and desire

Miguel Angelo Antonioni is a universally recognized film master. His works such as eclipse and spring have become film classics. He brought modern artistic language into film narration and expressed philosophical discussion through insightful images.

Compared with the previous two short films, “the dangerous thread of things” not only has a complete narrative, but also has rich symbolic meaning. This story is adapted from Antonioni’s book bowling alley on the Tiber River: the director’s story. For couples who have lost their sexual desire after many years of marriage, the wife tries hard to eliminate desire and temptation and only cares about spiritual cultivation, but the husband needs both love and sex. After a quarrel, she meets a sexy girl living in another tower and has sex, The husband was worried about love and desire and ran to Paris. Finally, the two women met on the beach.

The title “the dangerous thread of things”, thread has the meaning of line, and also represents the meaning of penetration or penetration. Quite a lot of hints related to lines can be seen in the film. The couple drove away from the ancient tower. The car backed down and chose the next road to point out the theme of the film. Can they only choose one of the two? After passing through the winding road in the woods, they went to the restaurant. After the wife rolled the glass on the ground, the winding vision was introduced into the section where they walked on a shady road composed of branches. See the combination of film theme and shooting techniques.

There are more naked bodies in this film than before. The two heroines spend more time without clothes than before, but they do not show off, but have their symbolic meaning (bordewell, Thompson, 542). In John Berg’s ways of seeing, women’s naked bodies can be self presentation or public exhibits (55), The presentation of self has its initiative, and the exhibition is the viewer, which means to be regarded as an object.

His wife Chloe is a person who attaches great importance to spiritual cultivation. From the dialogue, we know that she tries to eliminate temptation and knows how to appreciate nature. An inclusive person, even wearing a thin coat, can not cause the slightest sex appeal because she chooses to integrate herself into nature. She regards naked body as a way of self presentation, which is one of many nature, So it seems ordinary, which is why she accused her husband of not paying attention to everything and being controlled by desire. The only drawback is the chattering hope that her husband can embark on the path of spiritual cultivation like her. During her dialogue with her husband in Paris, she pointed out that the problem lies in cognition. The cognition about going home. The horse symbolizes the unrestrained and free childlike fun here. She called the horse and her husband home. It can be seen that she chose to put down the perishable body and regard spiritual cultivation as the ultimate belonging of people.

Linda, a girl living in another tower, appeared on a horse on the beach. Later, she had a sex with the hero that emphasized body lines. Unlike Chloe, who drove the horse home, her naked body aroused the desire of the male character. Of course, she became an object viewed by the opposite sex. The audience knew nothing about her except her name and body, It is a representative of sexual attraction and free development of carnal desire. Before sex, the male character asked: what will happen if I lie down? She replied, I will tell you my name. In fact, Linda means snake. In addition to evil and lust in the Bible, it is also the representative of wisdom.

In this film, similar to equilibrium, it not only opposes love and desire, but also blurs the boundary between the two. The two actresses met on the beach. Although they were infected by nature and danced naked, the message was completely different. First, Linda picked up the branch that symbolized the snake, danced and left lines on the sand. It’s not so much that she was dancing as that she enjoyed the random dance and rotation like a child. Then she went to Chloe. Her dance was almost modern dance and ballet. Compared with static dance, she also paid more attention to the attention of the outside world and had a viewing angle. Dance is an instinctive way of communication between man and nature. In fact, love and desire are also innate. Finally, quietly enjoy the dancing posture of naked women, which is beautifully displayed in the natural realm. It represents the release and integration of love and desire of each party.

This three short films with one theme are of course independent works of art, and the combination of films also has its artistic significance. The illustration and music of the room show the theme.

The painting used as an interlude is a work selected by Lorenzo mattotti, a famous Italian art, according to the style of three films. However, the work is surprisingly Oriental in color, with simple and heavy characters and no emphasis on people
