At first, it was because the background music of the film “Uchiagehanabi ” was popular on the Internet, although I can't understand the lyrics, the song still makes me feel passionate, so I went to see the movie. I thought it would be a film as exciting and touching as it’s songs, I thought I would cry after watching it, but I was wrong, the movie didn't have any tears in it. After watching it, it seems that there is nothing, and I feel a little lost. But maybe that's what the movie is about, that’s what youth is. People always think that if they can go back in time, they can change things. The movie fireworks are saying that even if time can go back, even if time can go back again and again, all we can do it to say to the person we like that: “I like you” and that's all, nothing will change, the missed will be missed. Norimichi Disappears at the end of the film, I was hoping that they will stay in the imaginary world and be with each other forever. There is no climax in the film, It's not funny, and it's not very touching, It's just youth, It may be boring, but it's a very good movie. If you are someone that likes this kind of movie, I would highly recommend it. 4/5 stars Show less

Christmas, so many sad things had happened on the day that it was supposed to be happy. Through the three vagrants, the film reflects the current situation of the whole society, the change of urban development, a cold indifferent economic Society, the hard life of the lower classes, but behind the cold and heavy tone is still showing the precious warmth between people. There is no deliberate in the film, no bloody battle, and none of that romantic stuff, there is only the sadness and kindness of the three vagrants. I think maybe only this kind of movie can be described as art. The film is very good and touching. If you happen to be at a low point in your grief right now, maybe you can find something that encourages you through this movie. 5/5 stars Show less

This is the life in two completely different worlds of two people. It is impossible for them to be together, but love is so romantic that what seems impossible becomes possible under the power of love. As long as they embrace each other, they can reach a balance and no longer fall anymore. Besides love, I think the film also conveys the idea that people need to communicate and understand each other. There are different races, different religions, different people and different ideas in the world, we do not need to change ourselves, we can maintain our characteristics, but we do not need to attack each other, as long as we understand and communicate, there will be no need for the world to regard each other as enemies. The idea of an upside-down world is pretty new and interesting, I will recommend it to people that like fantasy love films. 4/5 stars Show less

The best part of the film is the portrayal of human nature, which is impressive! The film is also excellent in rendering the atmosphere, there are so many classic scenes in the movie that make me tremble every time I watch it. I think zombies aren’t the thing that scares me the most in the movie, but the ugly human nature. As Seok-woo and his companions finally came to the door of the safe carriage, the people in the carriage decided to lock the door tightly and refused to let them in, because they think that Seok-woo and his companions had already been infected. When Seok-woo banging on the door, desperately and angrily. I felt angry with him, but also scared, It was scared to imagine how ugly people can be when it’s the matter of their own life and death, but also here is when my favourite character Sang-Hwa chose to sacrifice himself for his wife and other people to get into the safe carriage when it’s about the lives of family, people can become so brave as well. This movie perfectly reflects human nature, the so-called human nature is full of great love and ugly selfishness. This is a very good movie, if I can I would rate 10/5 stars for this film, and strongly recommend it to everyone. 5/5 stars Show less

The feeling of viewing and excitement in the second half of the movie is impeccable. I think the saddest thing about people in the colonies was not only the restriction of freedom or the disregard of human rights but the fact that they were deprived of everything but they think it's normal and not even going to fight it. However, in the end, Lena and Daniel escaped successfully, but the obstruction of the German embassy once again told us that the individual was insignificant in the face of politics. When Lena and Daniel finally boarded the plane home I was excited and can’t wait to see them expose this horrible place and close down the colony. The film is based on a true story, After watching it, I felt very shocked, but the only flaw is that I think the topics of concentration camps, politics and religion should be able to express deeper meanings, but the film is more of a tense escape atmosphere and did not describe the real historical background too much, this is the only part I feel pity about but other than that everything else is perfect. I would highly recommend this movie. 4/5 stars Show less

I think this film is more of a discussion of how human beings are multifaceted then mystery itself. The whole movie passes through dialogue to emphasize the reality and universality of a multifaceted person. In the movie, Alice spent one night telling Tom about her life in the past 15 years. Although it seems a bit boring and procrastinating, it was enough to shock me, in 15 years, she experienced nine identities, nine different jobs, nine completely different people, and contrary to her, Tom is an immutable person, his life is set in stone, then he met Alice, he was attracted by Alice's completely different characteristics from himself, but in the end, when Alice asked him to come with her, he refused with silence, and Alice chose to resolutely abandon the identity now and start a completely new life again. After watching the movie, I think I might identify with Alice's absurd way of life, because like she said: “It’s when everyone around you thinks they know who you are — then you’re trapped.”, although I can not abandon all the past to experience a new life as she did, I always want to be someone like her, anyone I want. I will rate 3/5 stars for this film, if you have spare time, this movie should be a nice choice. 3/5 stars Show less

The thread running through the film is an artist that Chiyoko met when she was a teenager. He left Chiyoko a key that he said would open up the most important thing. With this as the beginning, The film began to reproduce the various roles played by Chiyoko. The film is interleaved with various scenes, the transformation of time and space is presented from the aspects of clothing and environment, although even time and space have changed, what Chiyoko pursues has never changed, She has been pursuing the artist that she loves for her entire life. She is an actress, acting the people at different stages of history, and she is also acting her own life. The movie is very touching and beautiful, I recommend those who like touching romantic films to try this movie. 5/5 stars Show less

The film tells a lot of things, nature, Human or something else but what I care most about is how everyone gets out of their predicament. Sayoko was mocked for her mother's affair, Ossan's former owner was getting bullied at school and Coo is chased by crazy humans. When Coo is forced to climb the tower under the crazy pursuit of people, I immediately thought of the movie ‘King Kong’, I thought Coo would end up like King Kong. Standing on the top of the skyscraperIn, in the face of curious humans, looking at the city that wasn’t where he belonged and choosing to end his own life. But gratifyingly that didn’t happen, with his father's encouragement Coo decided to continue his life in this world and Sayoko chose to leave and start a new life, Ossan's former owner chose to abuse Ossan to vent his anger, and so Ossan chose to leave him as well. At the end of the movie, Coo has ushered in a foreseeable future, and all the other people for better or worse, are all moving on to continue life. I think no matter when, no matter how difficult it is suicide will never solve the problem, It only brings pains to the people that love you and you love. Time will give us a chance, as long as we are willing to insist on waiting until that day comes. This is a very good movie that's worth seeing and I will strongly recommend it. 4/5 stars Show less

The uniqueness of this film lies in its conception and angle. This It’s not a story about a mass murderer going on a killing spree, but a story of how a teenager moves step by step towards this process of self-destruction, and the movie also tries to explore its social roots. In the film, Dahmer has a broken family, an autistic personality, growing pains and repressed sexual needs, all of this needs a breakthrough to vent. The depiction of Dahmer is also full of human concern, this is a painful and tangled process, reason made Dahmer give up many times, but the urge to be driven by desire grows stronger and stronger after days passed by and eventually led him to the point of no return. That’s where the movie ends, the rhythm and flow of the film are compact and it makes it such a good movie. The film focuses on the past of a killer and his transformation process. There is nothing too exciting or too bloody. If what you want to see is a crazed murderer going around killing people, then this may not be the movie you're looking for. 3/5 stars Show less

The movie deduces the life of several vampires in modern society in the form of pseudo-documentary. I think this is the only movie that I watched where there's not a single character in the movie that I disliked. In the movie, Pete's death, Stu's integration into the vampires and Viago's persistence in his courtship on love are the core events of their lives. These events represent the separation of relatives and the construction of friendship and love. “What We Do in the Shadows” is full of humanization and life characteristics in both theme and content, It is easy to resonate with the audience. This is a very interesting and happy film. After watching the movie I want to join in and be their friend too just like Stu, but they probably won't accept me because I'm bad at technology. 5/5 stars Show less

You can probably guess the whole plot after watching the film for the first ten minutes, the script is nothing new and full of holes, I rate two star’s for those beautiful scenes in the film. This is a dystopian film, I guess the film is probably trying to express the importance of freedom and being yourselves, but I still don't quite understand what the film is trying to say because most of the time the movie is talking about inexplicable stuff. Especially in the second half of the movie, I think the evil tree part is so unnecessarily, It completely deviates from the overall style of the film and It also makes the content even more puzzling. I think the most important thing about a movie is its story, and the biggest problem with this movie is that they are bad at telling a story and making it was supposed to be a good theme turned into a lousy movie. After watching I think the film was a little disappointing so I won’t recommend it to people but if anyone’s interested, You might as well just take a look, because all of the above is only my personal opinion. 2/5 stars Show less

I like this movie and I also like the love between Eilis and Tony. Although Eilis had hesitated in the middle, and she even tried to marry Jim from her hometown, after being exposed by the convenient store owner as married, Eilis finally decided to say goodbye to her mother, her friends and her hometown and returned to Brooklyn and her lover. The last scene of the movie is Eilis waiting for Tony on the side of the road in Brooklyn. The sun was shining on her face and I can see there was more confidence in her eyes. When Tony saw Eilis, he couldn't wait to run across the street, they embraced each other tightly. I like this scene very much, just like what says in the movie: “Someone who's only yours. And you'll realize that this is where your life is.” The film is well worth seeing and I would highly recommend people to see it. 4/5 stars Show less

For the characters in the film, the pieces of their memories are scattered all over the place, no one has the whole truth, and that It's a lot like our lives. I believe the people who made this movie must have carefully designed the truth of the story. To be honest, the depth of the film is beyond my comprehension, I watched the movie twice, but I still couldn't understand the whole movie. The film has a lot of elaborate details. It needs to be watched many times to understand the meaning, But anyways, this is one of the best movies I've ever seen. This is a movie that can put the ending at the beginning and then catch people's eyes and make people hold their breath until the end. I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes mystery movies. 5/5 stars Show less

I have to admit that even today in 2020, The status of men and women is still not completely equal. Before the advent of women's rights, women have always been characterized as an appendage of man, a woman's life was basically about having children and serving her husband. Just like Katherine in the movie, Katherine is a girl who was full of yearning for the future life, but her husband told her directly that she was just bought for giving birth to his child, she was not allowed to talk, even on her wedding night, her husband left her with no dignity. Watching the wedding night scene, I feel very angry, because Katherine’s husband did not regard her as an equal human, what he did is so terrible, so when Katherine got rid of everything that had been restraining her I was feeling happy for her. She became the real Lady Macbeth, but she also had become the kind of person who was used to oppressing her, her hands were stained with blood, and I had no way of knowing if she would regret it. This is a very good film, I recommend this movie to those who like to see an act of vengeful revenge. 3/5 stars Show less

Whenever I feel miserable in life and disappointed in myself, I will recall the film and absorb courage from it. Edie served for her family all her life and finally decided to live her dream before being sent to a nursing home. This is the story about commitment, is the commitment to his father and himself. Edie's process of climbing the mountain is also her process of finding herself. In the movie, Edie says to Johnny: “I’ve wasted so much time doing nothing. I can’t give this up now.” This passage makes me feel a lot. Because people's life is so short, and the time is so limited, If you give up on everything, you may find in the end that you have accomplished nothing in your life. I like this movie very much and If you are a person who is confused about the present life or what to do, then I recommend you to watch this movie, maybe you will be encouraged by it as I did. 4/5 stars Show less

The tone of the film is too common, I've turned it on a grumpy day and then turned it off after like a minute, now I'm glad I watched the movie in a calm and peaceful mood. Because this movie needs you to calm down to interpret the film's ubiquitous details. I always remember what Queenie said to Benjamin. Benjamin has the face of a 70-year-old and the mind of a 7-year-old, there are too many things he doesn't understand, and she took his hand and told him:” Everyone to some extent, all have a different understanding, but we finally got the same place, but just a different path.”This is the most striking hint, It's also the theme of the movie. At the end of the film, I remembered this passage and I know more about these extraordinary scenes that are showing a simple but tender truth. This is a thoroughly good film. I would highly recommend someone patient to watch the film to the end. 5/5 stars Show less

It's about killing, it's about faith it's about love and compared with the civilization of the whole era, personal belief is the most precious and indestructible. There is no doubt that this is a very good movie. The film uses the protagonist's vision to connect different scenes naturally and the scene has quite a visual impact, especially in the killing and escape scenes. By watching the movie I can feel that it must be a very well-intentioned film, because the director makes such a simple story, a story that we can even predict the ending, so thrilling and so shocking. In the beginning, the film said: “ A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself from within “. But I think the film is more about the tenacity of life than the decline of Mayan civilization, It's a belief, an attitude. I would rate 5/5 stars for this film and would highly recommend it. 5/5 stars Show less

Because of the greed of capitalism, human beings have tortured many animals including killer whales. The killer whale is a highly intelligent animal, they are also cognitively and socially aware so all kinds of inhuman measures in the aquarium such as the separation of mother and child, putting different ethnic groups together and forcing them to perform day after day in a confined space makes them depressed and irritable and that leads to all kinds of tragedies. The actual footage recorded in the film is very sad and shocking. I was very uncomfortable after watching it. It is human greed, selfishness and stupidity to think of them as tools for making money. I believe that the movie is also saying that we should protect these poor animals, there should be no control or being controlled between humans and non-domesticated animals. In any case, I will never go to any animal show again. I wish more people could see this movie and at the same time, I also hope that through this film, we can call on people to boycott any form of animal performances, because I think that is nothing more than an evil interest in torturing animals for the sake of human selfishness. 4/5 stars Show less

The movie is about a brief summer love affair between two boys, but after the overflowing love theme was repeatedly interpreted, The film can still touch people with such a simple narrative. I think it is probably because it's the simplest representation of love the film has shown. In the last twenty minutes of the movie, my emotions are out of control, whenever Elio cries, I cry with him and when he feels sad I will also feel sad. I just can’t stop myself from crying and being sad, no movie has ever made me feel this way. It is related to myself so much, not that it reminds me of anyone in particular, but memories of feelings of inferiority, love and reluctance to all emerge. If anyone’s looking for a good movie, this is it. 5/5 stars Show less

Kind of a weird opening, a bully classmate, a family of four and the scary dark forests. A lot of strange elements that are surprisingly fun to put together. Greta always gave me a sense of wariness, whether it's sitting alone on the playground or hiding in the corner watching her parents fight with her sister, she always frowns slightly, her expression and the way she talks kinda reminds me of me in elementary school. The fantasy world, for Greta and girls like me are a safety zone to protect ourselves, no matter what grievances all can be cured here, and Elliott is a safety zone for Greta in real-life, he represents a close friend, but also a young lover. This is a really fun movie, I will recommend it to people who like comedy movies. 3/5 stars Show less

Or his guardian, teacher, friend and so on those who had influenced his personality and life should take the main responsibility?

Kevin loves his mother, all his rebellion from childhood to adulthood is to hope that his mother can pay more attention to him and love him more. If Eva had been fully prepared for being a mother, If Kevin had wanted his mother's love a little less, maybe the tragedy wouldn't have happened. 3/5 stars Show less
