A woman dances and straddles a man. They make out, there is a lot of moaning. The man removes the woman’s dress and she is in a bra and underwear. They writhe up against each other and moan heavily. He kisses her all over her body but then he stops because he is uncomfortable.


There a scene where a man and woman have “phone sex”. The woman is heard moaning.
There is lots of sexual dialogue.
Theodore looks at a drawing of a man having sex with a woman’s armpit.
In one of several sexual dialouges in the movie, a woman bizzarly demands that the man “strangle me with a dead cat” while they imitate a sexual encounter over online chat.
A nude, pregnant woman is shown during a fantasy sequence. Complete frontal nudity of the woman provides insight into the protagonist’s interest in alternatives to standard human interactions. The scene is about 10 seconds.


A scene where a man looks at a couple of pics of a pregnant woman. She is implied to be nude, but we only see her bare back.


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


Her is a very unusual love film.

This is not only because it chose the strange angle of “otaku fell in love with the computer operating system”, but at least director spike Jones discussed “everything about love” in a small fresh to “fine into slag” way.

Most classic love films, I think, are actually handled like war films. How the protagonists love each other is not the key point: once they encounter each other, they look forward to eternity, and one look makes an agreement until death. Most of them focus on the process of overcoming obstacles: Romeo and Juliet against family gratitude and resentment, Roman holiday has a class gap, and Brokeback Mountain is a gender barrier. To put it bluntly, after the sexual impulse is the starting point, the next is the battle “to be together” – the audience is willing to accept the setting of “love at first sight”, and then watch the protagonist play strange customs all the way.

The sharp weapon of this kind of love film to hypnotize the audience is the hero’s determination throughout the whole process to “anyway, I want us to be together”. What is the end point? The touching love film ends with our bravery and lovers get married; A tearful love film ends when the enemy is strong and our side is killed and injured (there are also both killed in battle). Although it is defeated, it is still glorious. This is not a war movie. What is it?

This is where I like her and find it fresh. The dialogue between the script lines is very interesting: Although the film talks about “man-machine abnormal love”, However, spike cleverly uses the setting of “future world” to defuse the public’s acceptance of this abnormal love. He just uses this special angle to study the causes of pheromone fermentation after physical attraction and explore the law of love extinction beyond external resistance. This observation is more extreme and pure when the party in love is set as a non physical computer operating system.

Perhaps in spike’s view, sexual attraction is insurmountable and frustrating. Whether it’s the opening protagonist peeking at pornographic pictures on the subway, or the extremely silly and sad “cyber sex”, or the later attempt to rent the body of the system OS, the director is explaining one thing: sex is the most primitive and important part of human relations, and it’s an appendix that can’t be removed in the human communication system, It is also a cover to hinder our self-awareness.

After getting rid of the shackles of the body, the essential obstacle of human communication is to cross the gap of self-consciousness.

It is not easy to establish a solid relationship with others, either through communication or compromise.

Communication is the most urgent and difficult thing for people. In addition to survival, people rely on communication to solve all spiritual problems such as loneliness and fear. When I was young, I cried when I was hungry and shouted when I was afraid. During puberty, I was eager to confess and say “like”. These are direct enough, but lack of skills. People think that as they grow older and more proficient in skills, the problem of communication will be solved. On the contrary, the more the accuracy of the expression is corrected, the more it deviates from the purpose of the expression; The more familiar with the propriety of expression, the more you will doubt the sincerity of your expression. Of course, you will also doubt the sincerity of the other party.

In her, as a mail agent writer, Theodore, played by jekun Phoenix, is good at “transmission” “Emotion, but he fell into a greater obstacle to expression. Since he is better at fake Lyric than others, he lacks a window to express his true feelings in the real world. That’s why Theodore can successfully flirt and pick up girls at the dinner table. That’s a skill, but he is flustered because of a sincere question. That’s the essence – it’s easy for good adults to tell lies , it’s hard to tell the truth, but it’s even harder to tell the truth.

The cost of adult communication is huge. Sometimes it has nothing to do with courage and sincerity, but because everyone lives in their own world. I like Amy played by Amy Adams in the film. She summoned up the courage to show her husband and Theodore her own documentary. She was full of expectation, but they didn’t know why. The embarrassment of “you think you understand me, but you don’t understand me” really makes any Theodore’s comfort and Amy’s husband’s suggestion seem stupid and superfluous.

Everyone has a strong desire to express, but in fact others don’t care. If you doubt this conclusion, think about it in turn to understand: when we talk to others, how many times are we perfunctory, pretending that we care, even cooperating with exaggerated expressions and giving sincere suggestions, but we don’t take it to heart at all. When the OS system makes a basic test for Theodore, it interrupts indifferently before Theodore finishes expressing his feelings. This is the inner drama of normal human communication.

Since the most perfect intimate relationships are the product of lust, it’s not surprising that Theodore will like the operating system OS. Suddenly, there is such a “it” in the world, which is exclusive, private and loyal, at least at the beginning. Can you lay down your guard and expose your vulnerability, loneliness and hesitation without burden, and this “it” is so smart to understand your joys and sorrows, comfort you, encourage you and satisfy you appropriately, and can you release your desire to talk and feel safe and warm “soul mate” better than “it”?

Communication brings a sense of security, pleasure and need, which is the starting point of all good emotions.

Unfortunately, the demise of intimacy is much easier than establishment.

Because the more you want to communicate, the more you can’t get through, life can only send compromises.

It takes a lot of effort to build trust in communication, but it will collapse in an instant with the problems that arise at any time in communication. Because in essence, the more communication, the greater the difference will be found. If two equal individuals want to maintain a long-term and stable relationship, it is like the bite of gears. The tighter the bite, the more compromises. The bottom line of this sacrifice depends on their respective feelings. For those who care too much about their independent personality, love can only be a carefully enshrined shrine.

Whether Amy or Theodore, their role in the failed marriage in the film proves this. At the beginning, the rhythm is the same, and finally there is nothing to say. In the marriage relationship between the two people and their partners, what they learned and where they went are not equal. It is ironic that Theodore has high hopes for the OS operating system. It learns faster and abandons faster. It has more than 2000 relationships and more than 600 close lovers. Mastering interpersonal relationships is naked. It is an unequal intelligence game.

OS is really an innocent big bid. Her only advantage is her honesty in communication. At first, Theodore felt reassured and honest, but at last, she was unable to look directly at the cruelty. Isn’t that the truth you want? It should be obvious that the independent personality of the computer owner can get rid of human beings with its learning ability.

Her, with the theme of man-machine love, is easy to remind people of the story in black mirror, but both dramas and expression methods clearly reflect the gap between TV and film.

“Black mirror” designed a delicate story, eager to convey the screenwriter’s intention. The emergence of network virtual function has accelerated and exacerbated human rejection of communication and fear of loneliness. But the key to the problem is that human loneliness is not brought about by the Internet or any new technology. It has never disappeared and can not be cured. “Her” doesn’t try to be alarmist, but spends a lot of energy to create an atmosphere and convey emotions. The image style of the film is colorful and indifferent, lively and desolate. There is always PM2 over the magic capital 5 excessive haze is the sum of heaven!

Her does not deliberately investigate the causes of the problems, nor does it propose solutions to the problems, but it is much deeper and deeper than black mirror. Black mirror analyzes society by reason, while her excavates herself by sensibility. Some people may say that the film mood is too personal and lack of control, but they don’t pretend. Who can help you pretend to be forced? If it’s not delicate enough, you can’t touch such a theme, “little fresh” doesn’t matter. The problem is whether you have made the “little fresh” to the extreme. Spike Jones has blocked the way of many people and can make uncle jekun Phoenix fresh. Others should look for another way in a solemn, profound and absurd way.

For her, I’m just not satisfied with its ending. The director seems to have spread a huge net, but I don’t know where to collect it. We talked about many propositions, and each proposition spread its own branches: the relationship between thought and body. How do people get along with themselves and society? People’s sense of belonging to the emotional world? But there’s nothing to blame. I’ve salivated so much here, and I don’t know how to end it. It’s good to be able to vividly express such a grand question as “human emotion”. Giving the answer is pure extravagance. All we can do is to create a little warmth and ease a little sadness like the end of the film.

This feeling is like chatting with someone for an unusually frank day, but I don’t know how to end it.

Finally, I had to say: you see, it’s cold. Let’s go back to bed.
