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


The paper moon, produced in the 1970s, tells the story of the great depression in the United States in the 1930s. Moses (Ryan O’Neill) is a opportunistic Bible seller. One day, after attending the funeral of his former lover who was killed in a car accident, he was entrusted to send his lover’s youngest daughter Eddie (Tatum O’Neill) to his aunt’s house.

At first, Moses despised Eddie, but Eddie’s clever tongue and excellent intelligence made Moses’s Bible business popular all the way, so the fake father and daughter formed a business partner, got up early (shake), greedy (Bump) black (cheat), and achieved gratifying results. Their Bible sales career was once blocked because Moses fell in love with a beautiful prostitute, and then they fell into a trap because of complacency. After many twists and turns, the fake father and daughter finally arrived at Eddie’s aunt’s house. Parting was imminent, and both Moses and Eddie were reluctant to give up. Although the cooperation is pleasant, will you see me later?

“Paper moon” is a simple and neat black-and-white road film. The splicing is extremely clean and there is no redundant picture. With (false?) The journey experience of father and daughter is the main line of the story. In fact, the core is the warmth between the elderly, the young and the two generations who seem to have no blood relationship. Playing the role of “father”, Moses seems mature, practical cynicism and lack of sense of responsibility. He doesn’t even let go of the $200 compensation for the accidental death of his lover. On weekdays, he lives by cheating widows whose husbands have just died to buy Bibles. “Madam, this is the hardcover version of the Bible your husband ordered a month ago.” “But he was in a severe coma a month ago.” Eddie, who played the role of “daughter”, was young and mature. An unintentional “same Chin” made her believe that this was her father. In the name of recovering $200 compensation, she also embarked on the road of serving the tiger. Oh, no, selling the Bible.

Despite the setting of the longest and most influential American depression in the 20th century, the film did not choose the warm and inspirational route of American girl’s secret. Focusing on the social and people’s livelihood problems brought about by the economic recession, for example, a 15-year-old black girl had to serve extravagant prostitutes for a meager salary, and the police and smugglers worked in collusion to seek benefits. The paper moon made no secret of the Great Depression’s heavy damage to the lives of the American people, So much so that the act of Moses tricking the widow into buying the Bible became excusable. Its description of the social phenomenon at that time was a little rough, and even the aura of the protagonist often seen in other films was saved – mosses, who was chased all the way by the black police and smugglers, was beaten and injured, and the money he had worked hard to earn (cheated) was robbed of nothing.

In such a difficult environment, the feelings between fake father and daughter seem particularly sincere. Eddie, who learned the essence of the law of making (cheating) money in two or three times, seemed to become the director of the business department of their small business. He not only knew how to rob the rich and help the poor in time, but also exposed the true face of prostitutes who tried to cheat eating and drinking with beauty, so as to protect the safety of Moses and their property. The trust and feelings between the two groups were also established in “business” one after another. At the end of the story, Eddie resolutely gave up his new home with warm and comfortable piano and chased Moses away. The ending was quite convincing.

It is worth mentioning that Ryan O’Neill and Tatum O’Neill, who play the fake father and daughter in the film, are indeed a father and daughter in reality. Tatum O’Neill, the daughter who plays Eddie, also won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her wonderful performance in the play. Although Tatum once fell into the sea of poison as an adult, this is also a later story.
