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


There is no way to test which choice is good, because there is no comparison. Everything is an immediate experience, only this time, you can’t prepare – — Milan Kundera

Sliding door refers to the automatic closing door of subway or elevator. You may catch it one second faster and miss it one second slower. This is a common phenomenon in daily life, but have you ever thought that catching up or missing means meeting different people and different things, and life may change

Helen is a public relations manager and lives in London with her boyfriend Jerry, who writes novels. Helen got up early to work as usual that day. She didn’t expect to be dismissed because of an accident. When she came home earlier than usual, she walked in the subway station in London. When the car stopped, she caught or missed the subway, which made her life go on a different journey:

Two processes

(1) Helen got on the subway. James, a strange man sitting next to her, was very charming and left a good impression on her who was depressed. When she got home, she was surprised to find Jerry and his old lover lying in bed One day she was dismissed and betrayed. Sadly, she went to the bar at night to release her mood and met James again. James’s comfort and help made her form a public relations company in her career and develop smoothly emotionally. Although the reappearance of her ex boyfriend Jerry created some misunderstandings and the emergence of James’s ex-wife brought some twists and turns

(2) Helen missed the subway. The double whammy was that she was robbed again and sent to the hospital. Due to time delay, when she got home, she didn’t meet Jerry who was cheating Helen found a job delivering fast food and continued to feed Jerry, who wrote novels. Helen was increasingly depressed due to the blow of dismissal and hard work. And Jerry continued to step on two boats and continue to play

Films that say “a decision will change a person’s life” also include “Laura run” and “Butterfly Effect”, and “sliding door” predates both. When I saw here, I thought this film was talking about this truth. Even when I was preparing to write this film review, I had such an impression of sliding door. But after thinking about the ending, it is not so.

An ending

(1) Helen and James, who got on the subway, finally solved the misunderstanding after several twists and turns. But a speeding van on a rainy night knocked Helen down Helen miscarried, saved her life, and finally came together with James

(2) Helen, who missed the subway, finally found out the truth of her boyfriend Jerry’s affair and unfortunately rolled down the stairs at almost the same time Helen also had a miscarriage and saved her life. She decided to separate from Jerry. The last scene of the film is after she is discharged from the hospital. She catches up with the sliding door of the elevator. Standing inside is the charming James

In other words, whether Helen gets on or misses the subway, she will eventually meet James, and the result is the same. In this way, the theme of the film is different from the truth of “one day you make a disease, that will change you and others’ life” in Laura run. It does not have the regret that “making different decisions will lead to different outcomes”. The theme of sliding door is positive and optimistic. Just as “sliding door” means “non-human decision”, the door is automatic and will not be opened or closed because you are hesitant to take it. As Kundera said, “there is no way to test which choice is good”, so we don’t have to hesitate too much in the face of choice and regret too much in the face of unpleasant reality. At the end of the film, it is Dido’s song thank you
