The narration of "Passing through the future" does not miss the past, does not miss the future, misses the hometown
Chinese drama film "Passing by the Future", released in 2018, directed by Ruijun Li and written by Ruijun Li, the film tells the story of Yaoting, a Gansu native born and raised in Shenzhen, who has never been to Gansu again except for her ID card. Now her parents, who have been working in Shenzhen for more than twenty years, decide to return to live in their rural home in Gansu. Yao Ting sees that her parents' life in the village is not as good as they want it to be, and she wants to bring them back to live in Shenzhen through her own efforts. The appearance of the young gangster Xinmin completely changed her life .......
The film is about the future and the future of the future. In the film, Yao Ting (played by Yang Zishan) is a Gansu girl who works in Shenzhen in a modest way. Born in Shenzhen as a child, she has never been back to her hometown.
It was not until one day, when her father, who had come back from the dead, decided to return to her hometown that she and her sister Yaoan saw the look of their hometown for the first time. The hometown in director Li Ruijun's camera was a bit like the village I lived in as a child, with thick earthen walls, and countless crops, corn growing wildly in the ground. The scene in the film where Yao Ting and her parents are collecting corn in the field is clearly a replica of my childhood. Now that my parents are gone, I try not to think about them. I try not to think about them, but I always keep my memories deep inside me, collecting my love for my parents and my hometown in silence. For Yaoting, she didn't seem to fully understand the meaning of her hometown. So she chose to escape her hometown and returned to Shenzhen, just to buy her own house in Shenzhen and bring her elderly parents here. Unlike her girlfriends who love plastic surgery and nose pads, Yaoting only has a habit of chatting with strangers using WeChat. In the film, Xinmin (Yin Fang), a small-time gangster living in Shenzhen, appears to be a strange man when he first appears in the film, but he is actually a kind man at heart. He lives in Shenzhen and has come to regard the city as his hometown. He has a job that is not too hard and seems to be fulfilling and full of hope in his busy life. It seems that he has long been accustomed to such a day. When he learned that Yaoting was the strange girl who usually chatted with him by WeChat, his feelings towards Yaoting became a bit abnormal. His mentality also changed. Is this love? It seems that it is not. Xinmin and Yaoting's relationship is like two people who are not familiar with each other, but inadvertently intrude into each other's lives to comfort each other spiritually. In Shenzhen, a familiar but unfamiliar city, two people met. They understand each other, help each other, and cherish each other. At the end of the film, there is a classic scene: Yao Ting, who has been working in Shenzhen for many years, decides to return to her hometown, and Xin Min accompanies her on the bus home. The sun shines quietly on Yaoting, who gradually closes her eyes, and a beautiful figure drifts through her gaze, like her departed best friend, like her sister who doesn't want to go to school, and like herself. Perhaps in another dimension, she could be dressed in white, riding a camel in her home land, sailing to a better future. Speaking of this, I suddenly thought of a quote written by a distant family friend on New Year's Eve in her circle of friends: "Don't think of the past, don't think of the future, think of your hometown." But, do you really know the true meaning of hometown? I'm afraid that one day, we will inadvertently forget the word hometown. Hometown is not only a place to belong, but also a spiritual return to belong. Throughout the director Li Ruijun's literary film "Passing the Future" in the elaboration of the spiritual proposition behind the culture of wanderers, is also so ah! People are at the end of the world, but their hearts are in their hometowns. In fact, our hometown is always in our heart. It's just that we can't go back anymore. This is the case of Yaoting's father, who returned to his hometown and left it to work in a nearby city. What will the future hold? I don't dare to say, and I don't dare to think. Perhaps this group of people is destined to lose their hometown and pass through the future. On the whole, compared to other films, Li Ruijun's literary film called "Passing by the Future" is poetic and cruel, with a real and cold silent viewing experience. Perhaps, this is the image effect that the creator Li Ruijun wants to achieve, on May 17, this "Passing the Future" will meet with the audience, it is worth watching, do not miss.
