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


Perhaps many people have encountered such a situation. You suddenly find that your life is flat and light. You are repeating the same things every day and encounter the same trouble. Over and over again, you are depressed, and you find your life chaotic and frustrating. In the “different sky” released in 1993, we saw such a family. The protagonist Gibert, a young man in an ordinary town, his life is strange in my opinion. His father committed suicide, his mother can’t face such a blow, overeating and drinking, and a once beautiful woman has become a fat and amazing fat man who may press through the floor. He also has a mentally retarded brother. From time to time, he has to climb up the high water tower, and the alarm siren sounds, which makes him tired. And his sister plays the role of mother at home because her mother is too fat to take care of herself. Her sister only knows how to dress up and loses her temper from time to time. And he himself has to be busy with the work of the small supermarket and deal with the housewife who has an affair with him. Life is in a mess.

The story of this film began in this way. It was calm and light, but there was a climax from time to time that moved me. Stories like this in small towns are often unfolded through several typical characters. What touched me most in the film was Gilbert’s fat and amazing mother. She needed crutches to move. She couldn’t even walk up the stairs to the bedroom. When she appeared, I was surprised and smiled. From this, we can imagine what kind of laughing stock she was in the small town in the play. However, her gradual performance in the film also drives the mood of the audience. First, a family dispute triggered her painful memory of her dead husband, regardless of her fat body, hysteria made people sympathize with her; Then when Yali was taken to the police station, she bravely walked out of the house regardless of the ridicule of others and hobbled into the police station to return her beloved child. I believe many people will pay tribute to her in that scene; When Gilbert didn’t come back the night before Alison’s day because he missed hitting Allie, the next day when she saw Gilbert’s guilt and deep love for her children, it was moving. Finally, she finally took a step and walked back to the bedroom. At that time, she was too tired. She was too tired all her life. The pain of losing her husband made her no longer beautiful, her fat body made her dignity disappear, and the humiliation of others made her feel bad to the children. She deeply loved her children. When Gilbert appeared in front of her with angel Becky, she seemed relieved of the children. She finally did the last thing. She lay down safely and left the world.

Gilbert is the core character of this film. This film always shows the stable changes of various characters. Gilbert is like this. His father’s departure makes him look for the important task of taking on the pillar of the family. He does well. He tries his best to protect his brother and take good care of his mother with his sisters. However, we can feel his mood from the somewhat depressing atmosphere in the film. It is difficult for him to see a happy smile, and life seems to have no hope of change. Until the appearance of Becky, Becky was the “intruder” of this dull family. She was beautiful, kind and considerate, which brought a spring breeze to Gilbert’s life. When a person lived in an environment for a long time, he often had “inertia”. Even if his life was chaotic and depressed, he just suffered for a while, and then continued to live again and again. So, at this time, the arrival of an outsider made everything different. Becky brought another way of life, a sunny life. In the film, the lens in Gilbert’s home always looks gloomy and dark, and the picture with Becky always looks bright and relaxed. At the last scene of meeting Gilbert’s mother, the self abased Gilbert’s mother opened the window and a ray of sunshine sprinkled on her, just like Becky, into a ray of sunshine to warm Gilbert’s heart, let him seek a different life and let him try to change, Looking for a different sky in life.

Although the whole film seems a little gloomy and dull, it is not a film that makes people feel depressed after watching it. On the contrary, the film always shows warmth and hope. Therefore, although life is not easy, we can find that Gilbert’s family is still warm. Especially in the attitude towards the mentally retarded Alec, the family is full of family happiness. Gilbert takes great pains to deal with the trouble created by Alec. When he accidentally hit his brother, the kind of heartfelt guilt is moving. When the family came to the police station and took Yali out of the police station, in the face of the ridicule of the onlookers, the family firmly surrounded their mother. At that moment, the family seemed full of dignity and even noble in the ridicule of the onlookers. When the mother died, in order to avoid the dead mother becoming a laughing stock she didn’t want to be, they let the mother burn with the house where she lived. The fire lit up the sky, which was the sky of the town where they lived. At this time, it was a different sky. They bid farewell to their past life with fire, and they began a new way of life.

From today’s point of view, the film can be described as a brilliant star. At that time, Johnny Depp did not become the coolest pirate in history – Captain Jack, but a green young man in the town. He will bear the heavy responsibility of his family. At the same time, the gloomy gibbet is very charming. In particular, the eyes and smiles from time to time implicitly show the psychological changes of the characters. At that time, Juliet Lewis will not become a fierce murderer until a year later. In this film, she plays Becky who brings fresh air to the Gilbert family. Her performance really gives people an angelic feeling, especially with Depp watching the sky in the sunset and soothing the frightened Alec. Several plays show the natural and cordial heart of a kind girl. At that time, DiCaprio had not boarded the Titanic to rescue beautiful women, but the mentally retarded child Yali in the town. It should be said that DiCaprio’s performance was also the best in the film. Yali’s innocence was pitiable, and his casual mischief from time to time was also angry and funny. The picture and music in the film are very good. From the picture, we can often see the character’s soul. For example, Becky was always bright when she appeared, and the music was often light at that time, but Gibert’s home was always dark.

This is a warm but not sensational film. At first, you may feel a little dull, but you also sink into the film. With the story of the giberts in the film, you may feel or rejoice, and finally smile for the hope shown at the end of the film. Indeed, life is sometimes chaotic and frustrating, but we can still find the warmth and love, and find a different sky.
