Foreign film – “No one cares about me, I hide myself.”
The film is adapted from the very famous children’s novel “Secret Garden” in the UK. The little girl Mary lived in India with her parents in the upper class. Because of her lack of parental love, her character was so isolated. In an earthquake, Mary became an orphan. The widower sent her to the British estate to raise her, and Mary became more lonely and lonely in a strange environment.
One day, led by the mysterious robin, she discovered the secret garden in the manor. The garden was abandoned for many years and no one was allowed to enter. Mary’s coward is also out of the ordinary, not seen. At night, Mary can often hear the cry of the child, and the servants are ignorant of it. Everything is very strange. Later, Mary met a little boy, Dickon, who likes to make friends with animals. They kept the secrets of the garden together and secretly cultivated here.
When a summer arrives, the garden is full of flowers, and the rose vines are like a fairyland. And when the garden slowly regained its vitality, the unknown mystery was finally solved one by one…
The film largely restored the plot in the novel, and at first it was foggy and curiosity. As the story progressed, one question gradually unraveled, and the protagonist became sympathetic and compassionate because of being close to nature. It is not so much a garden, it is better to say that this is the inner world of children.
There, it was initially desolate and closed, and then slowly regained its anger, eventually showing beauty and embracing the world. The play is also very instructive for parents: the power of nature, friendship and education can nourish the minds of children and revitalize their lives. What is more regrettable is that because the film was shot in the 1990s, the limitations of technology and equipment led to the lack of clarity and color. Otherwise, the grandeur of the garden must be amazing. I hope that the show will be remake as soon as possible.
Foreign film – “I go to school every day, I didn’t expect to run and become a champion.”
The story takes place in a poor family in Iran. The 9-year-old boy Ali is a very sensible child. Her mother has severe disc herniation and can’t do heavy work. Dad picks up a lot of life every day to make a living. There is also a sister and a baby waiting to be fed. The family rented in a small house and the life was very difficult.
When Ali bought a dish, he accidentally lost the shoes his sister took to repair. In order not to make Dad embarrassed, the brothers and sisters concealed it. Every day, my sister wore Ali’s shoes and went to the alley to change to Ali, and Ali went to class again. Because time is tight, Ali is often late. Also because of the rain, or the shoes fell into the drain, the brothers and sisters had to wear wet shoes.
Dad went to the city to give money to the rich as a gardener, but spent the accident to get the money he was going to buy for the children. Ali found that the city held a long-distance race, and the third place got a pair of sneakers. Ali decided to participate in the competition…
Foreign films pay attention to the life of a poor child with a kind of mournful and gentle eyes. The big boy’s hesitant and sensible eyes always contain tears. For his sister and family, he hides his grievances and sadness in his heart, which makes people feel bad. No. The younger sister is innocent and kind, even if she finds her own shoes, she is not willing to come back, just because the other father is a blind and poor person.
Although the father is stumped by poverty, he still believes in honesty and is not cheap. The family is so simple and kind. The scenes of the slums in the drama, the daily life of the poor, like the rural life in China more than a decade ago, are very real and kind, and people can’t help but think of their childhood. This is a simple and good story. There are many people who are in tears, but what remains in people’s hearts is still beautiful and warm.
In the movie, good children are always poor, but unfortunately more and more children are now. If you happen to be provoked by a bear child, I hope that after watching these movies, you can get rid of it. If you are tired of the indifference of adults, you can comfort yourself: they used to be children…
