On the first day of the Lunar New Year, a lot of people are cheering for “The Four Seas”, but watching, someone cried, someone laughed, someone fell asleep, someone went away…With a box office of 300 million yuan in two days and 5.6 points on Douban, The Four Seas has become the focus of polarization again.Supervisor makes “raise a name to establish ten thousand” fame and fortune, but oneself prepare meticulously a year “four seas” however accident turn over, han Han how after all?The film was rejected by many people even before its release, and the criticism was directed at Liu Hao-chun.Her past performances in films such as One Second were not recognized and liked by the public, so many netizens strongly urged them to quit watching the show as soon as they saw her name.However, many people walked out of the theater and rarely made fun of her acting skills, instead expressing dissatisfaction with Han’s plot and Shouting “EMo”.Most of the audience went to see Shen Teng because the duo of Shen Teng and Yin Zheng in Pegasus a few years ago gave us the Chinese version of the Fast and the Furious and the dark humor of Han han’s work.Surprisingly, all the jokes were in the first half.Shen Teng this did not have the heart of the father, he did not know the son after growing up, memory is not good still total boast by nature, car skills are not good but also big night to take a ride, translation of a manuscript also have to look up the dictionary, middle-aged people also have no home no employment incompetent, as expected the desktop of life all filled up with “tragedy”.And Yin Zheng’s huange, is a very nice person, dressed up cool and trendy, full of poems and songs, with two younger brothers who are not very good at riding motorcycles to show off.Good face to win the game, buy a new car good face to cut the ribbon, open a bar good face to make friends with big men, good face even if lost to leave with a smile, but in the end good face but drowned in the endless sea……When the two laugh out of all the midfield to get lunch to go, a Yao (Liu Hao Ran) and Huan Song (Liu Haocun) the story really began.But between them, there is no bloody love, there is no romantic story, there is no hand in hand, there is no kiss, and even gradually there is no intersection, but busy with their own track, no chance to meet…More puzzling is, the ending of the film is actually happy song was killed in a car accident, and for the star to fly over the Pearl River a Yao, in the victory of the completion of the task, and lonely to return to his hometown to resume his old career…Is it a comedy or a tragedy?What does Han Mean?What the hell does “The Four Seas” even mean?Has Han really run out of ideas?Those who have set their hearts on comedy, or even farce, will be greatly disappointed;Han han’s films, unlike Mahua Funage, do not parody fantasy, he will use a black humor, a prose style, to shoot a seemingly comic tragedy.”This is a lively but lonely movie. I tried to cover it with action and comedy. It may make you laugh many times, but in the end, it’s sad and sad,” Han once said on his Weibo.The name of the hero indicates a tragedy, no one to, no pain, are lonely meaning.People as the name, although they are father and son, but so strange, hurried to meet, and hurried to leave, even if there is a moment of warmth, but still can not resist waving away the desolate, their names, doomed to a lonely life.Ode to joy, ode to joy, reminds us of Beethoven’s Ode to Joy. The spirit of the brother and sister facing all the hardships in life with positive optimism is moving.But “Ode to Joy” was Beethoven’s swan song, and the “Ode to Joy” siblings also turned their car over at the young corner.The song played by Yin Zheng feels more like the real hero of the film, full of jokes, cool, talented, domineer, and tragic.Finally, I bought a new limited-edition car and had to come to a thunderbolt ribbon-cutting. As a result, the love firecracker was too burning and burned the car.Borrowed a lot of money to open a sea bar, did not think that he jumped into the sea at that time “roam”, but was hit completely by a big wave “fish xiang dive bottom”, I do not know later can become “jingwei”?”Good side” is the characteristic of the song, but beneath the vanity of good side is the surging of “inferiority”.On the surface are “do” caused by the disaster, but in fact, is also the small people want to reverse the fate of the compass, but unfortunately too hard to turn over the car!Sanmao once said: “people, it is strange, no outsiders to prove you, often do not see the value of already.”The little guy always wants to do something to prove himself to others, but sometimes it’s really hard!The death of the elder brother let Huan Song lost the only family member, the elder brother owed a huge debt is even worse.The girl in the mood for love, but the waves of life again and again “baptism”, huan Song also want to live with a smile, but laugh too hard.But she still said to Yao: “we who also don’t help, unless a person fell down!”I don’t want to be supported. I just want to be on my own.There is a capital “self-esteem” in the way of survival, so that the thin girl looks very tall.In the film, although there is a light of hope in every day of huan Song’s life, she is always trying to run in the direction of that light.However, she finally can not change the fate of the waiter, did not escape from the disaster of the car accident…Han han once said: “In the post and filming process, I tried many times to make it thoroughly encouraging and cheerful, just like in life, I always tell myself to be a happy person!I wanted my friends to be infected, but I didn t.The core of comedy is tragedy, and tragedy is the destruction of good things for people to see.Perhaps some people complain that god is not fair, the screenwriter is too ruthless, but life is sometimes true, the house leakage partial meet overnight rain, one disaster after another……This world, not all good will be linked.Many people work hard all their lives and do not come out ahead;Many people struggle for years and end up with nothing.Life is not only poetic and distant, but also the present struggle…The tragedy in Han Han’s works is not to make us pessimistic, but to let us have a better understanding of the reality: success is not guaranteed by hard work, but you must understand and cherish the people in front of you, not regret until you lose them!Lives lost, loved ones gone, dreams shattered, no one to tell…No amount of memories can only make reality more lonely and cold, wandering all over the world, why home?This is a literary film Han Han’s style of film works, is often out of the ordinary, like the article he wrote, looks like essays, but like prose, he is using a special way of expression, reposing the will and views of the heart, understand the love, do not understand also scold.Like “the four Seas” friends, more willing to define it as a literary film.Because a lot of things expressed are scattered, hidden, you need to find and pondering.Just like the children who go to the sea in the morning, looking for the footprints of small crabs under a stone, happy to find nature, unable to find it will complain about what the hell place!Only Fools Rush in!What is “the four seas”?In the film, Wan Ziliang had said such a word;”When I was young, I traveled all over the world;Old age, home everywhere.”Yao thought that by their own efforts, you can survive in the big city, you can give joy to happiness, you can be everywhere;Until the people around him one by one to leave, Yao just know, why don’t you want a hotel with early joy.Hotel is destined to be a Courier station, including early just convenient, but, it is not home, not the shore of the four seas!The line “Only a fool falls in it” is also repeated in the film. It seems to be a satire on huan Song’s motorcycle straying into the sand, but in fact it is Not Huan Song that falls in it, but Ah Yao.He was deeply in love with The song of Joy, so he joined the team of song of Joy without turning back, only to win the race to please her, only to risk his life to help her make money to pay off debts to ease her burden, only to repeatedly emphasize that he wanted to let her live in a hotel with breakfast……Love often drives a woman crazy, but it also drives a man crazy.Since childhood lonely Yao, desire is not only love, and affection, he wants a warm home.Therefore, he would rather be a fool of love, deeply in, silently pay everything for the beloved.In the “in the head of a bed, there is a book” the gift of the magi “, that is the representative work of O. Henry, about a poor couple in order to send each other Christmas gifts, to own the most precious thing when the money, then I found that they buy gifts to each other with no, but they are harvested the compared to the card and watch chain precious gift, that is “love”.And this movie also has this implication, Yao desperately racing to make money, is to help Huan Song to pay off debts, let her live a relaxed and happy life;And Huan Song trying to find a job, also want to stand on their own feet, don’t let each other too hard, and their own wages back to yao the most beloved motorcycle…They are trying to think for each other, trying to change the fate, they have never said a word of love, but the heart is to understand each other’s mind, there is no need to say the words, but each other heart.Although the ending is a sad auld Lang Syne, this artistic love mode is also very moving.In the movie, Shen Teng has such a line: “It is good to have people to remember, and to be remembered.”Two young people, thinking about each other, this is love, is warm, is the courage to survive, but also the hope of life.This is the characteristics of Han Han’s “The Four Seas”, black humor, golden language, colorful story, gray ending.As he wrote in Life as I Understand it, “I’m only in charge of creating the product, not the user experience, not the after-sales service, and not the improvement to suit everyone’s taste.If you like, is sunny;If you hate it, it will be sunny.”Epilogue: when the motorcycle gallops on the track, we not only see yao’s galloping life, but also seem to meet the burning passion of his young self.Once upon a time, we are also singing “heroes in the quartet” struggle everywhere, some everywhere home, some local villages, some leaves fall back to the roots……Yao, song, song of joy, they are countless you and I his miniature, in order to prove themselves and would rather fight a head broken and bleeding, in order to make their own favorite people happy, willing to eat too many grievances and hard.No one is willing to home, all want to have an ideal partner, there is a safe shore, that is the real home!The end of the movie is a tragic ending, and there is an open ending, we can not predict the future of Yao, but we wish him to find their own happiness, even flying off the ground, can also land safely!Life which can be more satisfactory, everything is only half gratified.”The four Seas” story finished, but a Yao’s life is still continuing, our way is still continuing.Though there’s a door you can’t open;There is a river, you can not cross, but I hope someone can let you no longer lonely and wandering, I hope your home is like what you think, there is a person, light a lamp, waiting for you to come back……
