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


Probably the first thing most people think of when talking about “fighting fish” is the series of the same name remake by Taiwanese. I haven’t seen that play. According to common sense, it can be classified as mediocre.

However, it would be a big mistake for someone to classify the 83 year old video as mediocre according to their understanding of the drama.

The film is directed by Francis Ford Coppola, who has made the Godfather trilogy and Modern Revelation. The novel and screenwriter are from S.E. Hinton, the author of the little Godfathers. After filming the little godfather, Coppola asked Hinton, do you have any novels. Hinton said, I just finished a “fighting fish” that no one can understand. You can have a look. After reading the novel, Coppola praised Hinton and said it was great. She even used Greek mythology.

Coppola did not specify what Greek mythology it was. I guess it means the end of the Odyssey. Odyssey went on an expedition to Troy with the Greek coalition forces and returned to his hometown ten years later. His former friends thought he had died early, seized his throne and robbed his wife. His son has always regarded his father as an idol, but now his idol has collapsed. He doesn’t know where to go.

In Betta, 17-year-old James adores his brother motorcycle boy very much. Motorcycle boy used to be a street hero and gangster leader in the town. He can fight, billiards, pick up girls and motorcycles. There is nothing he can’t do well. He can do anything. When the movie began, the motorcycle boy had left the town and turned right. James became the new gangster leader. He forbids others to mention the motorcycle boy in front of him, but on the other hand, he imitates the motorcycle boy everywhere.

Then the motorcycle boy came back. James wanted his brother to come out of the Jianghu again, but the motorcycle boy just shrugged his shoulders and smiled indifferently. He took James to the pet store and showed James a fish fight. The color of Betta is gorgeous, but the motorcycle boy can’t see the color. Bettas are naturally aggressive. They will attack each other and even their own shadow in the mirror. The motorcycle boy said, maybe their living space is too narrow. What will happen if they return to the natural river?

At the end of the movie, the motorcycle boy attacked the pet store, took the betta and wanted to put it in the real river. He asked James to ride his motorcycle, walk along the river and go to the sea.

Motorcycle boy is a very tragic character. His mother abandoned them, and his father was willing to degenerate and drink all day. He couldn’t agree with his father, but he couldn’t leave his father, and what’s worse, he was no better than his father. Although he is omnipotent, he can’t find what he wants to do with all his life. His father said the motorcycle boy was born in the wrong place at the wrong time. Others say he is an exiled prince. In a small town, all motorcycle boys can do is fight and make trouble with gangsters, symbolizing the betrayal of traditional values and existing order, with the color of anarchism. However, he had no idea where this rebellion could lead him in the end. It was just a “rebellion without cause”. However, drugs began to invade the gang organization, and the rebellion was no longer unprovoked, but interest driven. This has run counter to the original intention of the motorcycle boy, so he can only leave on a motorcycle.

Motorcycle is a very important prop. He reminds us of the protagonists in road movies (such as Easy Rider). Since the 1960s, angry young people have driven their motorcycles on the road. Mercedes Benz is both an escape and a pursuit. The motorcycle boy is trying to escape from the colorless Town, where although he can do everything, he can only lead a group of small gangsters to do nothing. So he left town and drove his motorcycle to California, a sunny place. But he didn’t find the sea in the end, so he had to return to his hometown and live with his drunken father.

James symbolizes the generation after the Knights. He no longer rebelled for freedom like his brother. He rebelled only to inherit his brother. After his brother collapsed, he wanted to prove that his brother was valuable and that his brother existed. His father was a drunkard and had already died. So he transplanted his feelings for his father to his brother. But the brother also collapsed.

The motorcycle boy has a goal, but he doesn’t know what to do. James has been doing it, but he doesn’t have his own goal.

When the motorcycle boy resisted the order and stole the Betta Fish for the last time, he was killed by the order defender, and the crowd gathered around his body. The camera gradually moved away and saw different people exclaiming and sighing. The motorcycle boy died. This paragraph has a strong sense of form and is clearly a liberal elegy. At the end of the scene, James can be seen riding a motorcycle away, which also implies that the liberals will continue to move forward.

The last scene of the film, James’s silhouette on a motorcycle before the sea, also brings us hope. The failure of motorcycle boy will not necessarily repeat itself. The ocean of freedom can be reached after all.

Betta is a very American film. However, as for liberals, or angry youth, their failure and inheritance are of universal significance. Our previous generation also fought and bled for freedom and ideals, and finally ended in failure. Our world still stinks. However, not everyone has rotted, and some people are still moving forward.

The movie language of fighting fish is very special. The whole film is almost black-and-white images, and the town also reveals the smell of dilapidation. This makes the film look very old. However, the lens of the film is very sharp. Look at the first few lenses of the film. The angle changes, whistling and full of tension.

In the whole film, the images are black and white. Only Betta has very bright colors. The colors are like jumping outside the images and living in this mediocre world. At the end of the film, James finally saw his colorful face in the mirror, which is a very clear hint of the birth of a new generation of liberals.
