The villain makes some threats near the end of the movie that have somewhat sexual implications, but his true intentions are pretty unclear.
No nudity. No sex scenes.


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


On the Internet, people’s heated discussion about the film is not due to the wonderful performance of screen goddess Audrey Hepburn, but the film critic Roger Albert gave it a zero score. Zero seems to come from the “mentally retarded plot” mentioned in the film review. Albert defines this concept as: “the development of the plot depends heavily on the foolish behavior of the characters. When facing some difficulties that can be easily solved by relying on common sense, these characters often choose stupid ways. Once they rely on common sense and the problem is solved, the film will end early”. For this film, Albert asked “why didn’t she lock the door?!” Of course, this question has been debated and concluded by IMDB netizens: Susie can also leave the door unlocked. Unfortunately, the “mentally retarded plot” in this film is not only about whether Susie has locked the door, but there are still many places where she can’t resist scrutiny.

Before praising or criticizing, we must first affirm the foreshadowing made by the director for the lonely and dangerous situation behind the heroine. At the beginning of the film, Susie greets the young people living on the top floor and tells the audience that the other party is going out on vacation. At the same time, stingy landlords almost never visit their tenants because they don’t want to repair their refrigerators. Then in the darkroom, Sam told his wife that he would go to aspoli park to take pictures all afternoon. So the only person in the whole building with Susie was the little girl with glasses, Gloria.

But the problem also arises precisely because of the little girl. With the help of Gloria, Susie found that it was not a police car parked outside the house, and immediately realized the imminent danger. But strangely, instead of asking Gloria to call the police upstairs, she took great pains to warn her by ringing the phone? What about warning a blind man who can’t see anything? Don’t you have to choose to alarm in the end? you ‘re right! When Mike also revealed his secret under the bell twice, the woman finally decided to pick up the phone and ask the police for help. But it’s too late. The bad guy has entered the house. Fortunately, Susie made up a story in a hurry to lure the three into her husband’s photo studio. The other party is not a fuel-efficient lamp. Before leaving, lot cut off the telephone line in the house… The problem with this plot is that the bad guys had torn their disguise at that time, so there was no need to be gentle, courteous and frugal. As long as they stay alone and sit in the house and watch Susie, they are safe. But the fat man stood outside the building like a hooped Street aunt in China! So Susie had another opportunity to send Gloria. But the little girl’s task is more puzzling than the fat man’s behavior: she still didn’t go upstairs to call the police, and she didn’t go directly to the police station for help, but to meet Susie’s husband at the station?!

Although the idea of the climax at the end firmly grasped the only advantage of the blind in the struggle against the enemy, there was an unavoidable problem in the specific implementation process: the audience! When Susie found that the telephone line was cut off, she first sobbed in despair, and then thought of the best way to retreat: destroy the corridor and all the lighting in the house! Strangely enough, a lamp in the inner room was “spared”. Why is that? Was Susie nervous enough to forget the existence of the lamp In my opinion, the solitary lamp has nothing to do with the people in the play. It is completely limited by the characteristics of the film. The reason is very simple. Although the darkness is consistent with the authenticity of the narrative, it makes the photographer lose all the light sources! The natural result is that not only the bad guys in the film, but also the audience outside the screen can’t see anything! In this case, the film director can only choose to sacrifice authenticity.

Such compromises continue. Mr. Roth’s method of extorting confessions was strangely designed to use gasoline. Threatening to burn the house without finding the doll is not a wise move in any case. So it can only be understood that this is to pave the way for Susie’s contradictory behavior of longing for darkness but constantly striking matches. The purpose of striking a match is not so much that the heroine is drinking zarote to protect herself, but to make the audience understand what happened on the screen through intermittent light. Opening the refrigerator door is one of the few ingenious ideas in this film that is both unexpected and reasonable. However, the brightness of the refrigerator not only completely solves the problem of audience viewing, but also forces the film editor and director to the point of exhaustion. Because it makes the balance of advantage too inclined to the bad guys, so that they can no longer think of any novel and reasonable means to turn the weak blind girl Susie into victory. So we can only opportunistically let the knife go

The Enlightenment of this film is, what kind of thriller film can break away from the so-called plot loophole and belong to the category of good film? If the new Korean film “tracker” can still be described as “not more confined to details” because of its deep sense of social criticism, how can the pure Hollywood commercial film “the ghost of a blind woman” get nearly 8 high marks on IMDB?

BTW:

1. Should blind people habitually wear sunglasses like their father in guide dog little Q, or should a considerable proportion of people “open their eyes” like the colonel in women’s fragrance and Susie in this film? I have always been unkind to think that without glasses is just showing off the acting skills of actors. Because actors with glasses can’t win Oscar!

2. Recently, I went to Albert’s website and found that zero has disappeared. Now: three and a half
