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


I didn’t know much about the film before I saw it. Even the trailer was forced to see it by AMC before watching special mission France last week. At that time, after reading the notice, I felt quite finished. Xiao K was still familiar with blowing his beard and staring in the notice. There were even several expressions that seemed to let me see the scene of pouring ketchup in the twilight city that became meme. I don’t know the director at all. I haven’t seen his previous works. I only know that his last two are biographical films, and then I went to see them with the mentality of watching a mediocre biographical film.

Maybe if the expectation is very low, there will be surprises. In the first third, I saw it inexplicably. I deliberately pressed the rhythm very, very slow, but it didn’t make any sense. There was nothing I had to slow down to experience, so I could only stare at some meaningless empty mirrors in a daze most of the time. At first, I wondered why Xiao K kept his voice down all the time, looked around, went to the fast food restaurant to ask for directions, and turned himself in like going to the police station. Then I found that all the people in this film speak with air. I think the director probably wants to create a repressive atmosphere? But it’s bad luck for me to watch two movies for two weeks that make me wonder if I can understand English. Xiao K’s performance in the first half fully confirmed my worry after watching the trailer, that is, it has nothing to do with Diana. I didn’t see what I played except affectation. Of course, her performance in the whole film has little to do with Diana, but I think the emotional communication in the second half is successful. After seeing the second half of the film, it doesn’t look like a biography, so I won’t investigate whether she looks like Diana or not.

When I saw eating pearls, I suddenly realized why I had a familiar feeling. It’s like a flash and a clown. The relationship between characters and space is like a flash. Those empty corridors and ghost servants in the palace are always static or straight forward. The extended lens looks straight at the characters, just like artificially creating a tunnel vision for the audience, making the obviously empty and regular space seem very narrow and narrow. There were so many straight shots that even the audience felt framed, that Diana returned to the manor where she grew up and danced in fantasy. When the camera finally turned up, even I felt the freedom of flying outside the screen.

The lens is always shot against the face, which reminds me of the feeling of watching a clown. The feeling of the two films is that they make the sad expression on my face a spectacle. It’s so close that I stare at a huge face. It’s too powerful. It seems that I must squeeze out every trace of sadness on my face. In particular, the film mentioned a lot of vulture media and the public. Diana’s biggest rebellion was her unwillingness to pull the curtains, which made me feel the subtle media reflexion staring at her face on the screen.

But I especially don’t like almost all the image implantation in the film. The bird that was run over is really a primary image. The main reason is that the story of Princess Diana is so well known. You put a bird that was run over by a car at the beginning of the film and gave it such a long shot, which the audience suddenly associate with it. Then it appeared again and again, and let Diana talk to the bird, and let Charles and William shoot the bird. It’s a little boring to repeat such a simple image over and over again. What I don’t like more is amberline. Every time I appear, I play incomparably. The design is too crafty. Obviously, other emotional communication is very natural and in place. As a result, amberline appears at the climax, and then the audience is pulled away because of this surreal character. The gain is not worth the loss. And if I have to choose such a character, I think Diana’s state in this film is closer to Ophelia in Hamlet than amberline.

The most successful medium of emotional communication in this film is soundtrack. In peace, the tone of the piano is as dark and gloomy as the low saturation grass outside the palace in winter. After the mood rises, the string music is really crying. At the climax, there will be sad wind music. Coupled with the reverberation of the organ, Diana is crying.

Nevertheless, although I have so many to make complaints about, I have cried three times in the middle, which is very unusual for me. Of course, Diana is also an unusual person for me. She is a very important female character symbol in my childhood. When I was in the third grade of primary school, I happened to catch up with William Kate’s wedding. There are reports of this in the newspaper. Almost every report will mention Diana. Review the “fairy tale wedding” of Diana and Charles, how their marriage broke down and how Diana died. In the third grade, when I started reading newspapers every day to absorb a lot of external information, Diana’s long veil and skirt were still very visual impact for several pages in a row. I’m also a fan of stall literature, And almost every book like “the unsolved mystery of the world” will have “the unsolved mystery of Princess Diana’s car accident” “So Diana became the protagonist of fairy tales and conspiracy theory in my mind, a very attractive dual identity. When I was older, I saw some of her documentaries and learned about her painful struggle, charitable contribution, fashion icon identity, etc.

Diana gradually became a symbol in my heart. She is an idol of the times, but she is one of the few or even the only people who really “passively become” an idol of the times. The marriage that brought her fame and world attention was completely out of her control, and the attached life completely out of her control. When she thought she had finally escaped the royal family that she thought controlled her, the media gossip, tabloids, public camera flash and paparazzi formed a more inescapable net, and she finally died in the pursuit of paparazzi.

Her life is full of ups and downs, but the most amazing thing is that her known image seems to have never changed. This is a miracle for a public figure who has been examined by countless eyes for decades all the time. When she was first known by the public, her image was: a beautiful, kind, naive, lively, rebellious and fashion loving girl. When she died, her image seemed to be: a beautiful, kind, naive and lively girl who was rebellious and loved fashion. These adjectives are not rare qualities, but it is very rare to keep them all the time.

It’s really hard to explain. I realize this because when I watch this film, I can’t help comparing it with the female biography films I’ve seen before. Then I thought of the one I saw recently, iron lady. I don’t like iron lady and other biographical films that only focus on the emotional aspect of the female protagonist. It seems to me very offensive to reduce such a powerful female figure as Margaret Thatcher to emotional being. But when I watched Spencer, I didn’t feel so unhappy, even though the film only showed emotion. I think it’s because Diana is special among all female celebrities. It’s hard to say that she has any achievements that Thatcher must show. If she doesn’t become a princess, Diana is an ordinary girl. Of course, she is still an upper class aristocrat, but she is nothing special. Her uniqueness lies in her commonness. Her Princess status is to magnify the pain experienced by an ordinary woman and then put it before the public. Then the public witnessed how an ordinary woman struggled but finally endured these pain. Even though she was weak and almost unable to resist from beginning to end, even occasional violence only hurt herself through self mutilation, but she was extremely tenacious.

I like this film, too. By completely focusing on Diana’s emotions, it is a spectacle of this internalized resistance process. In the end, Diana is like a scarred saint. She is a victim, but she is like a martyr. It’s like the more pain she is in, the holier she comes This is the reason why I feel very emotional, because all women can sympathize with her pain and struggle. In the process of watching, I sometimes think of myself, my mother and my grandmother. The film explores the most unique point of Diana, a public figure who is over consumed, her potential strong emotional energy. Diana’s pain has been expressed countless times, but she is not just a tragic figure on paper. Her efforts and struggles in the face of these pain are the most attractive part of this figure.

There is really no more suitable description of her life than candle in the wind. The candle in the wind seems to be in danger of going out all the time, but she didn’t go out.
