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


In advance, my Japanese ability is limited, so if there is any misunderstanding about the content of the film, please forgive me.

Before I went to the cinema, I didn’t know what kind of story it was. I don’t even know who the hero is. I think maybe this can avoid the preconceived impression?

Then the story begins. Taisho Japan, like Beijing in the early Republic of China, is mixed with familiar traditions and strange modernity, or the backwardness of the East and the advancement of the West. Teenagers born in such an environment, with a desire for the blue sky, struggle to turn over borrowed dictionaries and try to touch the new era through books from distant Europe. Such teenagers are no strangers to us, just like Zhan Tianyou and Yuan Longping, including Lu Xun and Guo Moruo.

Then the boy grew into a young man. He learned more about making airplanes and immersed himself in the joy of making airplanes. He is a genius. He works hard enough. His dream has not changed, but the times have changed. As the film has repeatedly said: “the wind is blowing, we should live well.” The wind of war has blown to Asia. In the face of strong Europe, poor and weak Japan wants to rise, rise at all costs, and even starve its own children. It also needs to take money to send technicians to Germany to learn technology. On the one hand, there are starvation victims everywhere in China, on the other hand, there are advanced technologies that our country can catch up with in 20 years. At the moment when the German aircraft warehouse is opened, the huge all metal modern aircraft brings not only shock, but also humiliation and hatred to the protagonist – modern Chinese people have tasted enough of this humiliation and hatred. The young man sitting in the German hotel looked at the gray night, smoked and said, “it will take us five years to achieve the technology that Germany has obtained in 20 years.” Does this sentence sound familiar? Yes, at this point in time, in the face of the powerful West, our position is the same as that of Japan.

Then, like young people in every era, young people meet their sweetheart, but the sweetness of love becomes difficult and precious in such a time and space. She was seriously ill and had to go to a hospital in the mountains for treatment, but he was responsible for building a plane, had to be tracked and monitored, and his life might even be in danger. In order to be with her lover, the girl chose to endure loneliness and cold. She went to the mountain alone for treatment. The young man could only hide in Mr. Heichuan’s home and silently contact her lover through postcards and telegrams.

Perhaps, the girl realized that her disease could not be cured. She came out of the mountains, came to her beloved, got married under the witness of Mr. and Mrs. Heichuan, and exchanged her last life for a short and happy marriage life. However, even so, young people still can’t leave all their time and energy to their wives who died like an hourglass. I still remember that when he heard that the girl was sick and vomited blood, he put on his clothes and ran out recklessly. While crying, he was still calculating the data of aircraft manufacturing on the tram. His tears wet the traces of his pencil, but his pen didn’t stop. He was still working and seizing five years against the clock! In front of me, the figure of young people coincided with other figures: they left their hometown in their early twenties and came to Beijing or Shanghai to publicize, speak, parade and even fight for the country and the nation. Who has no parents? Who has no brothers? Who has no lover? Who has no family? Some of them haven’t been married all their lives, and some wrote in tears, “I’m probably going to be an unfilial son.”. But their steps did not stop, because the times did not allow them to stop.

Finally, the talented young man built the plane that best met the requirements of the army, but this was not what he wanted. He said he just wanted to pursue the technology of human flight. In his dream, people flying in the sky with planes are the happiest. His plane is for people, not for bombs. He even lost his last chance to accompany his wife – the girl left him silently after he finally completed the design and returned to the mountains to go to the end of life alone. However, the tree wants to be quiet and the wind does not stop. The zero he built flew into the sky and flew to China across the strait with a bomb. The last thing left to him was the wreckage of the plane all over the ground. It was the wreckage of the plane he personally designed like his own children. Every piece of iron, every string, was painted by him, but only the crushed debris and the life buried under the debris were left.

Here, China and Japan have parted ways. My feelings were complicated in an instant. At that time, the pursuit of military strength was the dream of every country, even now. Because we all know that backwardness will be beaten and weak countries will be bullied. But when it’s strong? Is the end of military power really happiness and peace? The Japanese after the war may be the best to answer this question.

What has happened in the past 100 years? This is a question that has been lingering in my mind since I got out of the cinema. We all know the basic historical facts, but how to tell the mood behind the historical facts? Judging the evil of the other side from a just standpoint is the easiest thing in the world, just as a father scolds his son for not smashing other people’s glass. But everything has a reason, and the fault of not reflecting will not stop. Just like the film said: when the wind blows, we should live well. But after the wind stops, the survivors always have to do something for the next strong wind.
