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


I don’t know how people refer to Jeremy Irons in most cases. But for me, every time, he took me back to the sadness in the film. The wet weather on the south coast of England gave him a natural elegant and melancholy temperament. He easily subverted people’s concept of right and wrong with his performance. He made people willingly follow him through sin and darkness and go to the desperate situation of sorrow.

Mr. butterfly is a misplaced passion from the beginning. Sometimes the trend of the plot will confuse us and try to persuade us to believe that song is only using Rene’s infatuation with a mysterious oriental woman such as “she” in exchange for the peaceful life obtained by “she” as a “four old” element. But kroberg is so kind. From beginning to end, his camera doesn’t lie. The “she” in the camera has been telling us such a sad fact: he loves him.

The first time I saw Rene, she was like a proud queen, sparing words like gold, but she wanted to teach this reckless Western man what is called “respect”. At that time, her inner pain had spread uncontrollably to him: when Rene praised the perfection of her performance, she reminded him that as a Chinese, she could not abandon the humiliation of losing her country and incarnate a Japanese woman; When Rene praised Mrs. butterfly’s loyalty, she laughed at his overbearing superiority as a Western man. He felt ashamed. He didn’t think that she was the one who was really robbed of her identity in this conversation.

Then Rene went to her house to find her. He looked at the picture of her father on the table. She told him: the old man was lucky and didn’t live to the cultural revolution, otherwise he would be pulled to kneel on the glass. She didn’t think such punishment was wrong, but she didn’t want to see her father suffer such a fate. In fact, these words were told to Rene. She was making the initial self-defense to him: she knew she was going to be punished. She just didn’t want to see herself die in a mess. Her ideas are pedantic and old-fashioned, not because she has been to France to study abroad, but because she has seen magazines such as world today. She pleaded guilty unconditionally in the revolution, although she may not know what crime she committed. She gave up any resistance just to steal a life. She didn’t want to be reduced to this situation because she foresaw the tragic fate of her father as an actor. In fact, she had already handed over all her pride. She was so humble to get along with him and was eager to get a chance of life from him.

Perhaps at the beginning, her desire was really so simple that she just wanted to survive the revolution. But then she longed for real life and real love from him, then everything was wrong.

What surprised me was the writer’s careful speculation about the hearts of Oriental women at that time. As a screenwriter, Hwang is a native Chinese American.

Perhaps these descriptions are more or less from the eyes of Westerners. But just as Song said: do you know why all the female actors in Beijing theater play in reverse? Because men know better how a woman should react.

Look at the women of that era. The most luxurious dress was a piece of red cloth. They were asked to relax their trouser legs and wear the same clothes as men. At that time, gender was assimilated. And that really can’t be called a kind of respect for women’s gender, it’s a more brutal extinction. Although song is a “four old” element, “she” is more like a woman than any woman. When facing the intelligence personnel of the Communist Party of China, she wore the same military casual clothes as them. But look at what she looked like when she received Rene in the courtyard: Silk White Satin Robe and long hair. It was inevitable that Rene was bewitched by her, because at that time, he could hardly see any other Oriental woman displaying a gender feature like her. And we know that it’s not even a gender characteristic of “she” herself.

Another amazing thing is the director’s control over the film.

Most people should have known song’s real gender before watching the film. But although people inside and outside the film already know this, kroberg always insisted on not letting the secret come out of song’s mouth. He asked song to wait and asked her to wait for Rene to disarm her psychologically; He asked Rene to wait and his butterfly to knock on his door at a time when the scenery was gone; He also asked us, as the audience, to wait until a Chinese man suddenly appeared in the dock of the trial court.

Finally, the secret didn’t come out of anyone’s mouth. It flows back to our hearts like memories. Song recalled his first meeting with Rene in the prison car. He tried to recover his pride that night. He tried to humiliate him. Rene is also remembering. He is remembering his butterfly. He didn’t care about song’s deception and use of him. He just asked him: are you still my butterfly? They are only tearing at each other and humiliating each other in vain. And we are also recalling, recalling the first time Rene bowed his head and kissed her. At that moment, didn’t we have a little confusion of reversing all sentient beings?

Death is always the end of all love and hate. If a story aspires to perfection, bring everything back to the original place.

Rene finally accepted his sin, his love, and his destiny. He thoroughly shared everything with song. He became the butterfly lady in the mirror. He taught song how to be a woman, and song finally made him understand the love and sacrifice of Oriental women. He also won the pride of Song Dynasty and the pride of empress. So he can say to everyone: I have been loved by the most perfect woman. Then he completely became the perfect butterfly lady, and his death made all this perfect.
