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


The four years from 1940 to 1944 were definitely the most depressing time for the French. The country fell, and only the South had a puppet Vichy regime. In the film industry, a large number of directors left the motherland, including Renoir, Claire and Deville. However, some fresh blood joined the ranks of directors, including later famous directors, Like Jacques Becker, the master of black films, and Robert Bresson, the master of alternative films. One of them was Henry Georges Clouzot, who was very famous and became a heavyweight in the French directing circle in the 1950s. Crusoe is famous for making thriller and suspense films, and the famous enemy occupied film corbeau (LE) made in 1943 was called a peak in French film history in later generations. Truffer also said he liked the film very much. However, the film brought more pain to the director Crusoe. Once released, it was boycotted by the French underground rebels and called it a traitorous film. Ironically, the director Crusoe was also secretly informed by others, so he was expelled from France and returned to his country a year later. The experience of this year still dealt a great blow to Crusoe. He became world weary and hated mankind, Some shadows can also be seen from the later films. The film world after cruzo is a pessimistic and cruel world. The characters in the play are greedy and small, and always accept the call of death. Under the cloak of emotion, they are selfish, greedy, timid, hatred and violence. We have no right to judge other people’s world outlook, but the subtle techniques used by cruzo to show his world outlook to the audience through the medium of film are rare and wonderful.

In contrast, I prefer the price of fear and want to nag a little. This film took the golden palm of Cannes and the Golden Bear of Berlin. He won the two most famous international awards, which shows the excellence of this film,. The two-and-a-half-hour film is roughly divided into two parts in terms of plot. The rhythm of the first few minutes is slow, which roughly depicts a backward, desolate and isolated town. The film takes place in a small place in Central America after World War II. The war makes them leave their homes and flee to this small place. The weather is hot and life is difficult. When the war is over, it becomes a problem to return home, These fleeing people have no money to leave here. They can only continue to endure the suffering of life and miss their hometown here. Through various side descriptions, the director repeatedly explained the difficulties here, which also paved the way for several people in the next paragraph to dare to take risks to transport explosives. One of the details impressed me deeply. In this place, people of color are people of status, while white people in Europe have become poor and bullied, which was absolutely despised by many people in Europe in the 1950s. In the impression, Crusoe also has the idea of white people, so this detail further strengthens the reason why white people want to leave there as soon as possible.

After dozens of minutes of gentle paving, the rhythm suddenly became tense. In the following more than an hour, cruzo’s ability to create the atmosphere of thrillers, wonderful editing and rich detailed description presented us with a number of wonderful paragraphs, which also made it worthy of the name of “Hitchcock of Europe”. There was an explosion in the American oil field, and it was difficult to put out the fire. The headquarters planned to transport 900 liters of nitroglycerin from the town to the oil field to put out the fire. Nitroglycerin is a high explosive, which is afraid of vibration and heat. However, the oil company has no special transport vehicle and can only be transported by ordinary trucks. In addition, the road to the oil field is not easy, This transport is more like a death road to hell. Due to the high risk, the company plans to send two vehicles to transport separately. As long as one vehicle can reach the oil field, the task will be completed. In order to prevent the trouble of the trade union, the company employs several European refugees wandering in the town. Due to the foreshadowing in the previous section, these Europeans have long been tired of the town, although it is dangerous, But they are willing to take risks because of their generous remuneration and their longing for their hometown. So the candidates Ruo, Mario, Bamba and Luigi embarked on this thrilling road.

We must talk more about adventure and tension. From the beginning of loading the goods on the car, the film has been creating a tense and thrilling atmosphere. The porter’s nearly falling scared Luigi to throw away the wine glass; The caution and repeated examination of the oldest person who used his experience also repeatedly hinted at the danger of this journey; The car has been moving at an extremely slow speed. If the old man is nervous from cold to heat, chest tightness and vomiting, the fear of death not only puts him under great pressure, but also suppresses the mood of the audience. Difficulties are one after another, and Crusoe also tries his best to ravage the audience. When crossing the rubble Road, the speed must be maintained at 40 kilometers per hour, neither fast nor slow. Repeatedly throttle and shift gears. When the car crossed the suspension bridge, it became a classic paragraph. Cars pulling explosives, some rotten wooden suspension bridges, trolleys falling into the abyss, and the repeated switching between the broken rope and Mario in the cab increased the tension. Suddenly, the rope broke, the suspension bridge collapsed, and the camera turned to a panoramic overhead shot, which was also the car’s successful departure from the suspension bridge, The audience’s hanging heart escaped from the danger with the protagonist, suppressed and released perfectly. Cruzo also demonstrated his excellent local rhythm control and editing skills. There was such a paragraph of rock blasting. There was a huge stone blocking the road. They decided to blow it up with nitroglycerin. The stone was chiseled into a hole, and the nitroglycerin would explode in case of collision. LV Ji carefully guided the Nitroglycerin into the stone hole with a wooden stick. The camera close-up showed the wooden stick and the glycerin flowing slowly from it. The atmosphere was extremely tense and quiet, At this time, with a thud, the camera turns to Mario hiding in the distance. He is anxiously playing the matchbox with his hand. His rhythmic playing sound and the tension on the other side form a contrast. The sound is more like playing the nervous chord of the audience, repeatedly stimulating the viewer,. At the same time, Luigi’s stick for pouring glycerin, Mario’s hand for hitting the matchbox, and Bamba’s mouth for chewing. The repeated switching of the three groups of close-up shots further pushed the tension to a climax.

As mentioned above, after being expelled, Crusoe became more and more attached to the description of ugly human nature. Several protagonists of this film also have the characteristics of his consistent criticism, selfishness, greed, cowardice, violence and mutual use. There is no friendship or love here. Everything is hypocritical driven by interests. Mario, the protagonist, is always a loafer and a social loafer. He knows to sneak around and seduce a little girl all day. When he meets Ruo, a well-dressed businessman, he immediately becomes a good friend and tries his best to curry favor with him, and doesn’t hesitate to fall out with his former friend Bamba. His friendship with Ruo is more from Ruo, who looks like a rich man, More valuable. In the back, if the timid ones try to escape, they are beaten by Mario and forced to complete the task with themselves. The so-called strong friendship has become a process of interest exchange; Later, in the pit, Mario broke ruo’s leg in order to make the car pass smoothly, so cruzo’s human nature became more and more explicit. At the same time, the timidity and fear of the old businessman Ruo is also an important plot that the director spends a lot of energy on. Here, I have to praise the old actor Charles Vanel. If his interpretation of fear is enough to infect the audience, especially when he shakes and closes his eyes when waiting for the stone bombing, it is very vivid.

In addition to criticizing human nature, the film also reveals Crusoe’s view of the world, that is, this pessimistic and cruel world. Pessimism is mainly reflected in the view of impermanence and fatalism of life. The first scene of the film is four insects tied to a rope, and a child is playing with these insects, suggesting that people are the playthings of fate, and no one can escape the ultimate sad fate. The same is true in the play. Even after so many dangers, the brothers are lucky to escape. Bamba and LV Ji in the first car are talking about family affairs. LV Ji is shaving happily and talking about the cleanliness tradition of the family,. The camera turns to the car behind. If the tobacco leaves are suddenly blown away by a huge impact, there is a large black cloud in front. There is no doubt that Bamba and LV Ji have an accident. In the end, they even didn’t explain the cause of the accident, and there is no omen. The very accidental event once again shows the director’s view of impermanence of life. In the end, Mario capsized in the gutter on his way home after successfully completing his task. Cruelty is more related to the ugliness of human nature mentioned above,..

In this film, someone hangs behind the statue of the virgin, and the protagonist who used to be a nun in the devil has become a murderer, as well as the religious passage in the crow. I wonder if it is the director’s own suspicion of religion.

The film is not bad, but it’s a little long, but it’s a classic. The only regret is that you can’t watch it in the cinema. If you watch it in the cinema, you will get more involved in the play and feel the tension deeper.
