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


Many people say that the film is about people’s salvation and that people should pay attention to family. I don’t see it at all. On the contrary, I think the film feels very cold-blooded and very cold-blooded. Eastwood wrapped a knife that would hurt everyone with a seemingly mild appearance. That is the theme of the film – family, which is nothing in my eyes.

To illustrate this, let’s take a look at what kind of person Mr. Dongmu plays.

He was a World War II veteran. After retirement, he devoted himself to his career, indulged in raising flowers, regardless of his family, and took his own flowers to participate in various competitions. Without saying that he was highly respected in the flower shop, he also rose with wind and water, was at ease, and even missed his own daughter’s wedding.

Later, with the rise of the Internet, the traditional flower market declined (Eastwood talked about the Internet whenever he had a chance in the film). The old man was introduced into the territory of Mexican drug lords, so he drove his old pickup truck back and forth along the road to do the work of drug trafficking, which was called mules.

The old man acted naturally. With a big heart, he listened to music and sang songs on the road of drug trafficking, tasted delicious food all over the world, and played with countless chicks. It was because of this unusual way that he didn’t get caught for so many years. Instead, he became the best of mules, and even received by the senior management of drug lords. He talked and laughed with the drug boss at the party. How romantic and comfortable.

At the end of the story, the old man learned that his wife was critically ill during a drug trafficking. Despite the threat of drug lords, he gave up his task and rushed home to see his wife. Unexpectedly, the wife who hated him all his life revealed that he loved him and couldn’t forget him from beginning to end, and he also accompanied his wife through the last moment of life and attended her funeral, Even his daughter, who never spoke to him, forgave him.

However, the old man was finally caught by the police and put in prison.

With such a touching ending, isn’t the film calling on us to return to our families and not wait until we get old to regret? Not at all. Please see the following details:

At the granddaughter’s wedding, the old man and his ex-wife had the following conversation:

Ex wife: “I can’t understand why you spend so much time and money on planting flowers.”

Old man: “I love flowers. Each one is unique. They bloom one day and then come to the end of my life. They are worth so much time and energy.”

Ex wife: “so is your family.”

A very sharp and piercing sentence, like torture. Look at the micro reaction of the old man’s expression. It’s very interesting and worth watching again and again.

He didn’t say anything. First, he put away his smile, looked uneasily away from the conversation object, showed a embarrassed color on his face, his eyes rolled around twice, and finally fell back to the speaker. The seconds without lines were so long:

“I’m sorry, you’re not worth it.”

When we look at the motivation of the old man to be a mule, it is also the most puzzling place for the audience: what is he for? If it was to raise money for the granddaughter’s wedding at the beginning, what then? With his identity and ability, he doesn’t have to do these illegal things at all. The answer is very simple. He has nothing to do with his family. He just wants to do what he wants to do, make money, change a luxury car, exchange money for respect in the comrades in arms club, and eat the best hand torn pork sandwich in the world.

Looking at the ending of the story, the old man went to court. The lawyer was excellent and defended him from the perspectives of “World War II veteran” and “his age”. Unexpectedly, the old man said directly: “guilty, I’m guilty”.

Accept all charges and be sentenced to prison by the judge on the spot.

Please note that at this time, he has reconciled with his family, and his daughter who has broken off the relationship even invited him to attend the Thanksgiving family party. If he really changes his mind and returns to his family, will he refuse the lawyer’s efforts to reduce his sentence? He is very old. Why should he choose to spend his old age in prison? Don’t tell me that he is morally punishing himself. Because next, the most critical scene appeared.

This is also the most illustrative scene, that is, the last scene of the film, which reveals all the director’s “bad” Thoughts – the old man who went to prison planted flowers in the prison.

What a lucky bastard, I even envy him.

Flowers are his faith. In prison, his heart is still free.

At the beginning, he abandoned his family, regarded his hobby as a career and became a popular man in the flower industry. Later, he sold drugs, was very romantic and happy, and enjoyed the freedom to walk outside the social rules. Later, he refused the lawyer’s defense in the court and tried for himself. What he has been doing is to exclude others and dominate his own destiny from beginning to end. He is an out and out liberal. To be honest, I don’t see any taste of redemption. I only see his family in the whole process – just like their proportion in this film, small and insignificant.

Flowers can be regarded as the ideal of liberals and the symbol of their realization of freedom, just as movies are to the director himself. Liberals spend their whole life chasing ideals at the cost of cutting off dispensable feelings with others. People here can be close relatives.

Real, cruel, cold-blooded. It makes us begin to reflect on the relationship between freedom and family, the relationship between relatives, and the relationship between freedom and morality. Is it really such peace in front of us?

Life is a free man, which is the ultimate dream that everyone can’t realize. However, Eastwood made the man in the video succeed. He is free until he dies. The family must make way for liberals who pursue their ideals. When the old man planted flowers in prison, what I thought was that Mr. Eastwood, in his eighties, was sitting behind the monitor and fighting for the film industry.

Isn’t he the one who spends his whole life growing flowers?

Many people say that Mr. Dongmu is old and his level is not good. I think he is still very good this time. He even has a feeling of going out and playing. He cut a hole in human emotion with his old expression and excellent acting skills, and deceived the audience with a seemingly warm ending, I have to say that the cunning old man completed the most natural and unrestrained curtain call in his film career.
