Extremely brief non-graphic reference to masturbation. Most kids will not get it, and it is not an obviously crude reference.


In one scene an older boy tells his friends that his girlfriend only lets him touch her boobs.
A kid says that he can see that a girl’s boobs are getting bigger.


There is no male or female nudity.
Infrequent mild sexual references are made, mostly in a joking or humorous manner. No actual sex or nudity whatsoever in this film.
Some very brief rude dialogue, but on the most part it is innocent

Four boys come out of a pond with leeches all over them. It is implied that one of the boys’ has a leech stuck on his penis. He reaches into his underwear and faints briefly after that.


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


The first time I watched stand by me was at school. Now when I think of it, the school can find such a simple film, which is a lot simpler than Italian job and Pirates of Caribbean. I liked it very much after watching it. It simply became one of my favorite movies. The friendship, personality and different experiences of the four boys. An adventure to find a body. There are no special effects or too much sensational in the film. Everything is plain, simple and clean, but it always makes people feel neat and meaningful.

This is the third time to watch stand by me. I found the DVD version on the Internet earlier. I thought it was very good, so I ordered it by mail. It was dusty at home for two months. Finally, I decided to take it out and see it again. In fact, I was quite hesitant before watching it. After all, les choristeres and friends I saw a few months ago are very good films, and the requirements for film concept seem to be much higher than before. Therefore, I think it might be a better choice to let it stay in memory quietly without watching it. But I saw it in the end. One is to pass the time. In addition, I really want to re experience the mood at that time, even if I have to risk that mood being destroyed.

After reading it, I still have no regrets. The experience of the four boys is still moving. Four children with different personalities. One was discriminated against because his father was sent to a mental hospital. One bears everyone’s prejudice because of the bad reputation of his family’s time. A father was indifferent because of the accidental death of an excellent brother. One is a little fat man who is as timid as a mouse but can’t curb his inner impulse. In order to be a “hero”, the four people embarked on the journey of looking for the body.

The journey is only second. During the journey, everyone’s character was reflected incisively and vividly. The weakness and strength of the four boys’ character were magnified to the greatest extent in a series of actions, such as flashing the train, turning over the iron gate, crossing the forest and so on. Everyone has everyone’s mind, and everyone has dreams that everyone can’t reach. This may be a group of precocious children, but it is also a group of forever young children. They speak dirty words, discuss the future and ridicule each other’s parents without care, but they are duty bound to take care of each other, comfort each other and give warmth to each other. Such friendship is often the most sincere and pure.

It seems that it can be extended here. In fact, the motivation of the four children to look for bodies to become heroes is also more or less saturated with their dissatisfaction with life and the current situation. In the family in society, in that small village, they are a forgotten group. They have no family care, lack adult care, and even do the right thing will also be misunderstood. So they indulged in smoking, playing cards, singing along the tracks and leaving happily. In fact, the purpose of leaving is to awaken others’ attention to them. Perhaps what they care about is not only the so-called radio and television exposure, not the praise of the police, but the recognition of others, especially their families. In this way, they don’t have to listen to their father say that you can’t make better friends, and they don’t have to feel in a trance in their dreams that it’s themselves who should die. They are ignorant or even naive to this society, so they have always been helpless. In such a journey, they may finally find that they still have such good friends. So in the end, instead of taking the body back to the town, they called the police anonymously. Such a choice makes them feel right and good, because they understand that there are many, many people who support and value themselves.

Suddenly thought of a sentence I had seen before, and always felt very reasonable.

In fact, living in this world is for one or several people. If what you do makes sense to these people, it will make sense to everyone. And if what you do doesn’t mean anything to these people, it really doesn’t mean anything at all.

A woman’s face is pleasing to herself. A little like that.

This kind of mutual help is always moving. The friends you make when you are young may be the ones who can really stay together for a lifetime. Even if life changes, even if you can’t meet, it’s enough to remember such a person in your heart.

Because in fact, in such a life, how many people can stand beside you all the time.

I like the last paragraph of the film very much.

“Although I have not seen him in more than 10 years. I know I’ll miss him.

I haven’t had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve.

Jesus, does anyone?”

Last question. Ask yourself.
