本想用中文写的,或许更贴切。但是因为不太愿意放肆地发表内心的感想,也介于想让英文写作进步,最后决定还是用英文写这篇感想吧。

It has been some time since i watched a really good film (not the blockbuster kind).. and “Coming Home” was really good. of course the presence of film-pro (Zhang Yimou, Chen Dao Ming and Gong Li) was a drawing factor too..

maybe it’s because i have knowledge of the cultural revolution and also some knowledge about Chinese cinema, it makes me really appreciative of this movie. it’s really nice to see how things learnt from texts can be applied or adapted to our daily lives in various aspects… the movie’s story doesn’t have the typical climax or an ending but the presentation and narration of the whole movie are nicely tied together.

anyways, i wouldn’t mind watching it over and over.. it somehow reminds me of Dr Volland who taught the film class i attended in Y2.. towards the end of the film everything he taught just came back and i thought: if he had the chance, maybe he will include this in his teaching list! but a pity Dr Volland is leaving Singapore soon…

nevertheless i guess Coming Home is a film that i will not forget any time soon.. if there’s something else i will write about it will be: it is really really touching. i was seated between two women, and for half the time i could hear them sniffling… it may not make you bawl, but the emotions and subtle meanings conveyed are really effective.

PS: i think my writing has really gotten worse, and hopefully practice will make it better~

Writing again. 随笔.

好久好久没有写东西了,放佛以前会提笔的时光不曾存在过。有时提笔开始写写东西也觉得是一种安慰和抒发,无论是中文或者是英文的。

盼了好久好久的假期终于来临,然而当它真正开始的时候我却感到措手不及。到底近四个月的“空挡”应该要如何好好利用呢?当然等待着我的不仅仅是休息,当中也有实习还有论文的功课。。

有时真的觉得很奇怪,为什么之前期盼已久的东西在它还很遥远的时候反而比近距离看到来得更美好。
或许这就是人心,有时候我们借由未来的一件事或者希望来勉励自己,利用这种还没发生的美好憧憬帮自己度过看似难熬的当下。
可真正来临时,我们面对的可能会让自己措手不及,让自己感到彷徨,让自己感到害怕呢?在面对这么多的未知数,人的反应或许更多的是拖延和逃避。好吧我在说自己呢。

我总相信无论好的东西或者坏的东西,一旦开始了就会一发不可收拾。所以每天经历的平凡都是为了更好的应对这种“一发不可收拾”;该来的终究会来该完成的也终究要完成。说了这么多可能没有终点,更多是提醒自己不要怠慢自己,不要怠慢别人,当下就要好好去做自己该做的事。

最后,虽然感到忐忑不安和迷茫但是希望以前看书记下来的句子能激励自己,并重拾心情蓄势待发:

“这个世界一定有复杂的一面,但也一定有很多经历过复杂仍然简单的人。健忘的人比较容易快乐,能不忘却并继续快乐的人,请放心,也一定懂得如何幸福”。

愿正能量陪伴我们走过许多青春时的迷茫岁月.
