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


“The last emperor” created several firsts in Chinese film and television history: the first feature film (rather than an expansion film) shot in the Forbidden City, and the scene was completely cleared and the guardrail was removed. Later, in Zheng Shaoqiu’s “joking about Qianlong”, you can obviously see that the main door of Taihe hall behind Qianlong was blocked by an iron fence. Bertolucci told the story of China for the first time (and the only time). Moreover, this is the first time that a film about China has won an Oscar. Xu out of respect for the master, the Chinese did not make any restrictions on the content of the film for the first time.

Perhaps Bertolucci’s identity as an Italian Communist helped him?

The film lasted 2 hours and 35 minutes.

Puyi is a man who is difficult to conclude simply by good or bad. He has been an emperor since childhood and thinks he has everything. However, the government of the Republic of China and the Japanese demonstrated against him with foreign guns and artillery. In the 5000 year history, he was a rare “three ups and three downs” emperor. He was the emperor three times: the last emperor of the Manchu Qing Dynasty, Zhang Xun was the emperor during the restoration, and the “Manchukuo” was the emperor; He surrendered three times: to the Republic of China, to the Japanese and to the people’s Republic of China. Generally speaking, Puyi can be regarded as a person without much energy and accurate ideas, or a mediocre, a little ignorant. Yes, he also wanted to do some great things, such as taking refuge in Japan and taking revenge on xuesun dianying for stealing and digging ancestral graves, but he didn’t have the ability. Those who approached him just wanted to take advantage of him.

From this point of view, saying that Pu Yi is a first-class war criminal really elevates him. He was a victim of a dynasty. At the end of the dynasty, there will always be people involuntarily pushed to the front line to maintain its final dignity in a broken way.

Back to the movie. I think the most successful part of this film is that the director tells Puyi’s life in more than two hours from a new perspective. In the film, Puyi is no longer the sinner we have always understood, but an ignorant mediocre with a trace of kindness in his nature. The tide of history rolled him around, and there was nothing he could do.

The director’s use of light and shadow has tended to change. The film is almost entirely made of natural light, with a large number of wide-angle shooting. Anyone who wants to learn photography or photography should take a good look at the film and see how to use light to express the mood of the characters. Bertolucci said: “In the Forbidden City, Puyi never received direct sunlight. He was always in the shadow. During this period of life, he was always isolated from the outside world. Later, when he learned more and more from his teacher Johnston, we felt more and more sunlight shining on him. The struggle between light and shadow began gradually, just like consciousness and unconsciousness on you Like fighting. In the Manchukuo part of the story, when he was served as a puppet emperor by the Japanese and he himself dreamed of returning to his empire, the shadow almost covered the whole picture, just like returning to his childhood. Later, in prison, he recalled his life. The more he knows many things, the more light and shadow tend to balance. He should end your life in a perfect balance of light and shadow and in a stable tone. I just hope to realize this vision. ” Here, light symbolizes openness and joy, while shadow symbolizes closure and melancholy.

Pu Yi’s later life inevitably mentioned that era. Oily, fat bellied discipline cadres and crazy loyal word dance swept away all cattle, ghosts and snakes. These things are absolutely impossible to exist in our films, so I can’t help feeling nervous when I see here.

I also found a few highlights:

·The film won the 60th American Academy Award for best picture, best director, best adapted screenplay, best costume, best composition, best editing, best sound effect, best photography and best art work in 1987.

Another work directed by Bertolucci is the shocking work the last tango in Paris.

·Antonioni, a compatriot of Bertolucci, once filmed the documentary China in that decade. Antonioni, who claimed to be “a traveler with a camera”, encountered huge criticism in China. At that time, Bertolucci supported Antonioni and believed that “this documentary China depicting Chinese urban and rural poetry is a real film about the Chinese people.”

·Zunlong was the first leading actor in beitorucci’s interview, but Beishi didn’t believe that the number one would come so easily, so he searched in the United States and Asia for a long time. Finally, he returned to Zunlong.

·Wu Junmei was 16 years old when she appeared in Wenxiu. At that time, the film remuneration was only 600 yuan. However, after filming this film, he went to study in the United States, and then his star path was broad.

·This is the first feature film to be shot in the Forbidden City with the permission of the Chinese government. It is also the first western film about China with the full cooperation of the Chinese government since 1949. The first western film allowed to be filmed in the Forbidden City was Lucy Jarvis’s documentary Forbidden City for NBC in 1973.

·Pu Jie, Puyi’s eldest brother, and Li Wenda, who helped Puyi complete his autobiography, were hired as consultants for the film.

·The crew also interviewed some people related to Pu Yi, including his wife, warden and male servants, who gave some opinions on the film.

·The film used a total of 19000 extras.

·The lamas in the film are forbidden to be touched by women, so the crew specially hired male garment assistants to help them dress.

·To make wigs for people in the imperial court, hairstylist Giancarlo di leonardis used 2200 pounds of hair. In order to ascend the throne, his staff spent 10 days training 50 Chinese employees so that they could handle the wigs and braids of 2000 extras in two hours.

·The crew hired an Italian chef to cook for the foreign members of the crew. He brought 22000 bottles of Italian mineral water, 450 pounds of Italian coffee, 250 gallons of olive oil and 4500 pounds of flour.

·The management of the set is very strict. Peter O’Toole, who plays Puyi’s British teacher Reginald Johnston, was rejected by the crew once because he forgot to bring his pass.

·In order to play the flag man, 2000 soldiers shaved their heads. The officer persuaded them to show their international friendship with Italy and Britain, and gave each soldier a bonus of $3.50.

·The film used 1100 students to play the red guards during the cultural revolution. Director Bertolucci took a long time to instill anger into them, because these children could not feel the emotion in the cultural revolution.

·At that time, Bertolucci submitted two shooting plans to the Chinese government. The other was Andr Malraux’s novel La condition Humaine. The Chinese government agreed to shoot the film without any restrictions on the content.

·The Chinese film co production company provided their studios and a large number of extras for the film. In return, they obtained the domestic distribution right of the film.

·Built in the 15th century, the vast Forbidden City, with its high and thick walls, provided excellent sound insulation for the shooting of the film, although Chinese film crew members were not used to recording at the same time.

·Since motor vehicles are not allowed to enter, even Peter Otto can only use bicycles as tools to enter and leave the set.

·This is the first best picture Oscar Rated PG-13 by the American Film Association MPAA.

·Producer Jeremy Thomas raised $25 million for the film alone.

·The filming period coincided with the visit of Queen Elizabeth II to China, but the production team received the priority of the government, which prevented the queen from visiting the Forbidden City.

·Ying Ruocheng, who plays the chief executive in the film, was then Vice Minister of Chinese culture.
