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


Some films need to sink their heads and dive in to find a lot of money. That’s the case with new bridge lovers.

The sound and picture clips of the film are very special. There are many dislocation clips, some of which are “flash forward” and many very short and unstable fast clips, which create a kind of spiritual anxiety and life dilemma outside the marginal order and in the post urbanization era. The use of music sound effect, picture color, light, and even character modeling all reflect something unspeakable, maybe a disease or subculture, maybe everyone’s hidden feelings.

To tell you the truth, some camera clips even frightened me. I think the recent film clips are more traditional and don’t adapt to it. However, if the film is seen in the cinema, it should be more amazing.

The existence (existence, maintenance and development) of the existing social survival law (order norms) is a need for the optimal social cost, but its existence is undoubtedly a constraint on the free mind. It refers to a way of life and sets a benchmark. Exceeding its size will be regarded as dissimilarity.

Ali is a man outside the order, and Michelle rebelled against the order. The two men integrated into each other’s lives at a time, and their behavior was very similar. But the roots of their similar behavior are different.

Michelle’s main reason is that her eyes are about to lose sight and her lovelorn blow leads to despair in life. Under the action of the neurotic nature of artists (painters), she travels in a wandering way without purpose and direction. Maybe she hopes for some experience and detachment, or she just numbs her heart occupied by despair.

Michelle’s rebellion against the existing order is caused by acquired factors. Generally speaking, people don’t want to stand alone outside public order, because like others, it will bring me a sense of security from isolation, which is often the basis of happiness.

So once Michelle learns from the radio that her eye disease may be cured (this news gives her hope of returning to public order), she doesn’t hesitate to put medicine in the wine and leave Ali for treatment.

Ali’s independence from order is different. His despair is extremely profound. It is not explained in the film. There are two possibilities: one is that he lived outside order at the beginning of his life (no contact, no identification), and the other is that he has suffered great changes (such as Hans’s pain of losing his daughter and wife).

So he will try his best to tear up and burn the poster looking for Michelle, because in his mind, once Michelle recovers, he will inevitably leave him, a lame man who is incompatible with reality.

Because outside the order, the first half of the film presents a neurotic image style, which I think is also a little surrealism.

For example, did Michelle kill her ex boyfriend Julian?

Julian playing the violin is indeed chased by Michelle (ALI is so angry that he throws away his crutches when he sees Michelle catch up with Julian’s subway). We also saw Michelle follow Julian’s house and shoot the cat’s eye. However, during the fireworks celebration in Xinqiao, Ali checks the pistol and says that all 15 rounds are there. Then Ali and Michelle each fired seven shots. After Michelle left, Ali also fired one shot and hurt his hand, so all 15 rounds are there. Where did the bullet that killed Julian come from? Is the scene of killing Julian fantasy or real?

Similarly, there was only one poster looking for Michelle at the beginning, but turning around, the walls of other advertisements were also covered, and each telegraph pole and wall were covered. Generally speaking, no matter how rich you are, it is impossible to post a notice of looking for someone like this, and you can immediately hear the relevant information when you turn on the radio. This density is almost impossible in real life. This is probably an amplification of Ali’s mental anxiety that she has a hunch that she is about to lose Michelle.

Michelle recovered from her eye disease. Ali, who had been sentenced to three years, also cured her leg in prison and learned welding skills. After the physiological defects disappeared, Michelle showed obedience to order. However, in those rebellious days, the spiritual and physical freedom with ALI is an indelible memory. So they met again.

From outside the order to inside the order, the two people’s feelings did not disappear. But on the new bridge, Ali finds that Michelle is not the same as before. He throws her off the new bridge and they fall into the water together. Perhaps it is in the cold water that you can get closer to the soul or something else. In short, you get great wisdom in death and life, have an epiphany, have a more essential understanding of life, and your emotions have entered a new level.

Going to the Atlantic or somewhere else and leaving the rotten city behind is no longer a simple rebellion, but an enlightenment.

Whether in or out of order is no longer important. The joy and happiness of two people together is eternal.
