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


Nearly three hours passed unconsciously, and I didn’t feel sleepy at all. Further convinced of Roman Polanski’s ability to adapt famous works, he told such a sad and moving tragedy with ease and elegance. Famous works are rarely read. Even if the film is not so pleasing to the eye, it can be regarded as a tutorial on classics.

I’ve been thinking, who caused Tess’s tragedy? Is that Eric? It is true that we can regard him as a playboy playing with women, but we can’t deny that his pursuit of Tess includes love. Moreover, he has taken the initiative to be responsible for his actions several times. It is difficult for us to attribute him to the heinous villain. Is that angel? It was he who abandoned Tess shortly after his wedding, but everyone has a narrow vanity. I’m afraid no one can easily laugh at such an ignominious shadow. So is Tess herself? At that time, women belonged to vulnerable groups. Young, ignorant, cowardly and weak, she was passively harmed from beginning to end. Even the last blood splashed on the train was just the outbreak of pain accumulated for a long time. Or it can be attributed to secular morality and killing ethics, but the film does not reflect the obvious characteristics of the times. The family and villagers are kind to Tess, and the priests and capitalists are so amiable.

The helpless fact that we can’t distinguish right from wrong undoubtedly emphasizes the tragic color of the whole film. In fact, from the beginning, when Tess’s father learned that he was a noble, the curse was planted from then on. In everything, we never think of self-reliance and self-improvement first, but hope to get benefits from our ancestors for nothing. This is a sense of inertia and dependence deep in everyone’s heart. Moreover, due to the material distress of the lower class, they need to rely on and comfort from their attachment to the upper class. From the spiritual level, the spiritual pillar of the whole society is also established by the upper level. In that era, no new faith can support the soul of the lower level, so they need to consciously move closer to the upper level from both aspects.

Tess’s appearance is actually an alternative. First of all, she doesn’t care about the status of celebrities, and doesn’t want to get material benefits from the so-called noble relatives; Later, after her illegitimate son was rejected by the church, she also gave up her spiritual faith. So when she was wandering alone in the wild, she prayed and faced the pagan stone pillars. Finally, she slept safely on the ruins of the pagan temple. She ran away from Eric to pursue material independence; She admitted to angel that she wanted to pursue spiritual equality in the past. However, the concept and system at that time obviously could not be compatible with this advanced way of thinking. In Eric’s concept, the way to get love was to give women material support; In angel’s view, men can have an absurd past, but women must be absolutely chaste. Therefore, Tess’s death on the gallows, like Bruno’s ashes on the stake, is a rebel’s tragedy.

The director was extremely patient and restrained when telling the tragedy, and adopted a jumping way to deal with the plot of the heroine’s fate turning. For example, when Tess parted ways with Eric for the first time, she had a child in her arms; Tess’s father had just refused the priest’s baptism. In the twinkling of an eye, Tess begged the priest to hold a funeral for her child; Just now Eric and Tess were having breakfast. The picture turned downstairs and Tess fled in a hurry, with a little blood on the ceiling. These are all visual stimulation scenes that can be wantonly rendered, but the director deliberately only explained the causes and consequences and omitted the specific process, which not only played a surprise effect, but also gave people a lot of imagination in this way of stopping at once and leaving blank appropriately.

The exquisite composition is also a highlight of the film. From the beginning of the sunset, a group of girls in white approached with singing and dancing in the blue sky and green fields, to the end of the morning fog, the mounted police led the Tess couple slowly, forming a very clear care. The scene of Tess in purple sleeping on the wasteland ruins is also very shocking poetic. The lens that can best reflect the artistic characteristics of the film is that when Tess finds that angel has not read the confession letter, a large amount of dazzling white light flashes in front of the screen, and the audience can directly and strongly feel the dizziness in her mind, which is definitely an effect that words can’t give. It can not only not lose the taste and connotation of the original work, but also give full play to the advantages of light and shadow to achieve another level of artistic appeal. A good adapted film should be like this.
