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


I’ve seen “graduate” twice. One is to watch it by yourself, and the other is to watch it in film and television class.

1967 American film.

The United States in the 1960s, anti war trend, civil rights movement, Vietnam War.

In a turbulent society, there must be confusion at a loss.

Adolescence is actually a long war.

From a graduate who is at the mercy of his parents and doesn’t know what to do, to a private meeting with half old Xu Niang; From the depravity of incest to the persistence of true love; From a timid boy with excellent grades to a man running on the road with a girl who almost became his wife.

From shrinking the head and tail to being reckless.

From blankness to certainty.

This is the growth process of our graduates.

What lingers in my mind is the scene of Ben wearing diving goggles and diving underwater.

The world is full of praise and encouragement, and lacks understanding alone. At the moment when it is poured into the water, all voices retreat instantly, leaving only their own breathing. Breathe, breathe, breathe – there is no crowd full of eyes, no dazzling sunshine, only blue water, and yourself.

And myself, at the moment of pouring water, it seems that all the worries and burdens are filtered away by the water.

Hide under the water and enjoy the brief simplicity and tranquility.

But diving can only be a kind of escape. No matter how quiet the underwater world is, it will always surface and return to the embrace of dust.

So Ben almost poured into the water of the pool. Not jump. In that slow and short action, it carries all the helplessness, confusion, anxiety and sadness of a graduate.

After meeting Mrs Robinson, Ben was even more at a loss.

“Mrs. Robinson, you’re trying to seduce me”

“Would you like me to seduce you? Is that what you’re trying to tell me?”

This classic line, as well as the scene that the camera showed us in panic through the dislocation between Mrs. Robinson’s thighs, has been quoted by people since then.

The young man didn’t know whether to refuse or accept the temptation from a half old Xu Niang.

After incest, he was depressed in the dark room, in the inflatable pad on the water, and was trapped in a whirling degeneration.

Simon and Garfunkel’s “the sound of silence” shuttles through every thought and loss in this book.

Hello darkness my old friend.

I’’ve come to talk with you again.

He is so lonely. Wandering in the dark. Find yourself without anything. Even feelings are distorted.

And Mrs. Robinson.

Many people think that this woman is perverted and seduces a man who is so small. And a friend’s child.

But I think she is actually very poor.

She told Ben in the dark that she didn’t like art, but her major was art. Seeing the expression of disgust and despair when she talked about her dreams, I remembered that I used to ask those who had worked whether they always adhered to their dreams when they were young. Many people haven’t answered me directly. In fact, I also know that dreams can’t be realized if you insist. There are many roads, but not every one can lead to Rome. The wrong way is another destination. Years crumple people’s faces and crush people’s dreams.

She’s actually confused. She is older than Ben, but not more powerful than him. Between her and Ben, there is no emotion, only physical relationship. She just wants to prove that she is still young, and the comparison with Ben also makes her seem more in control.

But in such an era, who is always clear and full of confidence in their own future.

She was as dazed as he. Just as ignorant.

All the sunshine was soft and quiet only when Ben ran out of the auditorium with Irene, jumped on the bus in full view of the public, and looked at this section calmly after panting.

No passionate kiss, no excited tears, only calm eyes.

This symbolizes everything and finally becomes hopeful. There is no sharp collision of torrents, no heavy whispering and rubbing. Everything returns to calm and stability.

Didn’t give us a longer story. Everything still ends with the sound of silence.

However, how can these two young people who ignore themselves and become themselves continue their youth.

Graduates, symbolizing, are just layers of problems.

Listen to me and then tell me.

What I need is silent thinking, not care that you haven’t even tried to understand.
