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


We may all have heard that when a person’s life is threatened, he often does many things that he can’t do at ordinary times, such as breaking out strong strength and amazing physical fitness when danger comes, but these are stress reactions in human physiological functions. The film Persian class shows us a more incredible thing, because the protagonist’s response when his life is threatened is to create a language.

At the beginning of the film “Persian class” is a massacre against Jews. On the occasion of life and death, the protagonist escaped by using a Persian book he bought on the way to pretend to be a Persian. However, he was selected by a logistics officer of the Nazi SS in the concentration camp to teach each other Persian. Facing the language he knew nothing about, the protagonist had to create a “Persian language” out of thin air, so he began to use the names of the Jews held in the concentration camp as the roots to create thousands of so-called Persian words. Finally, when Nazi Germany completely failed, the Nazi officer remembered not the Persian words that could make him escape, but the names of 2840 Jews.

Over the years, there have been many films reflecting the suffering of Jews during World War II, and good works have been emerging. Logically, there is nothing that can bring new ideas to people, but this Persian lesson still surprises me. On the one hand, the story of the film itself is too legendary. Although the film has the subtitle “adapted from the real story” at the beginning, it still gives people an incredible feeling. On the other hand, some “non mainstream” groups targeted by the film lens are worth pondering.

Remember our names

If you want to find a keyword for the film, it is undoubtedly the word “name”. For us, a name is a symbol of a person’s existence. Behind every name composed of words, there is a fresh life with joys and sorrows. Even if one day, the person is gone, as long as his name is still remembered, the evidence that he once existed in the world will not be erased.

After watching the film Persian class, I suddenly found a very interesting place, that is, the protagonist of the film did not reveal his real name from beginning to end. The name he used in this film is only the Persian name he falsely used, but his real name and real name have never had a chance to speak out. It can be said that he is a real “nobody”.

In this film, the so-called “nobody” is not the protagonist himself, but thousands of Jews who are locked up in concentration camps like him. They are naked and hungry. They silently engage in heavy physical labor every day, and then disappear from the world silently at the muzzle of Nazis. Who are they? What are their names? Where did they come from and where did they end up buried?

No one knows.

There was a scene in the film that impressed me, that is, after the concentration camp was emptied for the first time, the protagonist who went out to avoid came back again. In the open space, he picked up a doll. Obviously, it was left when a Jewish child was taken away and destroyed, and a cloth strip with the name “Aviva” was sewn on the doll. The protagonist tore off the cloth. When he returned to the empty concentration camp dormitory once full of people, he gave the name the meaning of “Persian”: life.

The picture that followed was a cart full of Jewish corpses. They drove to the incinerator to completely erase these dead names.

This is the most legendary and moving key of the whole film:

A surviving “nobody” remembers 2840 “nobody” who once lived. As long as he reads those names again, those people will not disappear.

And one person remembers these names.

No snowflake is innocent

“During the avalanche, no snowflake is innocent”, which can be said to be more appropriate in this film.

In the past, when we talked about those who committed terrorist crimes in the war, we talked about the leaders who launched the war and planned the plot; In previous relevant films, the villains were often those ferocious and insane Nazi officers. But we often ignore those seemingly mediocre but actually criminal accomplices at this time, such as the guards of the concentration camp, the drivers transporting Jews, the soldiers responsible for pressing the switch of the gas chamber, etc. they all seem to be performing their duties, just screws on a huge machine, not so heinous.

But this is not the case. Each of them is an accomplice to evil.

Let’s turn our attention back to this film. The biggest villain in this film is a Nazi SS captain named Koch. It is worth noting that Koch’s official position. In this concentration camp, he is not the highest commander of the concentration camp who has the power to kill all people, but just an officer in charge of the logistics of the concentration camp. To put it mildly, he is in charge of the canteen.

It is in this character that the real meaning of the sentence “no snowflake is innocent” is really reflected.

We can see that Koch is very different from the Nazi officer we used to think of: he is only responsible for logistics and has never shot anyone; He yearned for a free and peaceful life; He loved writing poems, loved his family, longed for the early end of the war, and opened a restaurant with his brother who fled Iran.

He seems to be a very different Nazi SS officer, but in essence, he is no different from all those cruel and murderous SS officers, because he doesn’t care about the lives of other races at all. In his eyes, except for their “noble” Aryan race, other races are pigs and dogs. He doesn’t care how others kill these “pigs and dogs”, What he cares about is how to provide these people with good food so that they can kill more vigorously. For him, the protagonist of this film is just a dog that can be used to guard the house.

When learning the so-called “Persian”, Koch constantly praised the beauty of the language and even wrote a quiet poem in the beautiful language he learned. What he didn’t know was that these words he called beautiful were actually the names of those lives he despised and ignored; Those names that disappeared outside his window but he didn’t care about were constantly remembered and recited by him.

How ironic it is.

Call me by our names

At the end of the film, these 2840 names appear twice, but with completely different results.

The first appearance was at Iranian customs. Koch proudly said the “Persian language” he had learned. In fact, he recited the names of the lives that disappeared in the world under his accomplice, just as the wronged ghosts claimed their lives. Together with the wronged souls they represented, these names broke Koch’s dream of escaping the trial.

The second appeared in the Allied camp. When the rescued protagonist was asked if he could recall the names of the people imprisoned with him in the concentration camp, the protagonist began to read those names one by one. The names that had been engraved in his mind and used to be his ace in life protection. With the reading of these names, the people around him calmed down. They watched the protagonist recite those names one by one, It’s like seeing the lives represented by those names, standing on this land again one by one, telling their grievances to the world.

It can be said that it is the softest resistance to weave the names of our compatriots into a language and teach it to the aggressors, and we can’t even see any effect at all. But in fact, this is the most lethal resistance, because it can make those evil accomplices entangled by these names all their life, become a nightmare of their life, and become the hard evidence of the existence of those wronged souls.

May none of us become that “snowflake”.
