Meng ying tong nian Reviews:

ELECTRIC SHADOWS is such a tiny treasure that I wish to plug it in to each movie lover I know. The comparison to Italy's "Cinema Paradiso" is apt in the most necessary method because it's all about how films enrich the life of a child. In another ways, the movie is so vastly various from writer/director Giuseppi Tornatore's lovely work, which is quintessentially Italian: large with emotions, architecture, color, performance, length and budget. In this short and seemingly easy Chinese film, lack is everywhere, from the missing father to the lives these characters lead: where they live and work, what they have to eat and how they receive around (the bus in which sister escorts her baby brother is a excellent situation in point).Yet thanks to a style that is warm, honest, rich and--especially--gentle, a storyline full of quite terrible events is said in such a method that whatever director/co-writer Jiang Xiao offers us, including some cute massive coincidence, we gratefully agree because all of it works beautifully toward her target of celebrating film, family and friendship. Her achievement is all the more surprising because the movie--her first, and filmed, it would appear, on an awfully tiny budget--starts out simply and charmingly then quietly builds until it reaches a conclusion that ties everything together without a whiff of heavy-handed melodrama or overkill. In the Unique Features, the director explains her purpose, how she came to film-making, and her hope to do something worthy for the major anniversary of Chinese film. I can't imagine a better gift to the country, its growing movie industry, or the widening globe of international movie lovers. Enjoy!


'Electric Shadows' says a storyline about a woman called Ling Ling and her mate Mao Dabing vs the backdrop of the Cultural Revolution in China. The movie begins with Dabing (Xia Yu), a teenager who loves movies, accidentally falling into a brick wall with his bicycle. The walls collapses, a woman picks up a brick and smashes Dabing on the head. Then the girl, who seems unable to speak, asks Dabing to feed her fish while she has to stay with the police. He agrees and in the girl's apartment he finds her diary, learning that she is indeed his old mate Ling Ling (Qi Zhongyang).While he is reading her storyline we see the images, starting with Ling Ling's mother, how she everytime wanted to be a popular actress or singer, how Ling Ling was born as an unwanted child, how her mother wanted to end her own life but due circumstances changes her mind. Ling Ling's mother becomes a caring mother who wants nothing but the greatest for her daughter. Dabing enters the story, at first a bully for Ling Ling but after a while they become greatest friends. In the meanwhile Ling Ling's mother spends a lot of time with Uncle Pan, the town's film operator. This is of course where the children search their love for the movies, and Ling Ling's mother finds the love for a fresh man.I could tell nothing more about the story. We understand things will receive complicated since Dabing and Ling Ling did not recognize every another when he was smacked with the brick. We also see that some poor things gotta have happened to Ling Ling. All those things are for you to explore with this terrific movie from first-time director Xiao Jiang. In a method this movie is about loving movies, the method 'Cinema Paradiso' is that. The director said the audience that she was honored with this comparison, but it seems only right. 'Electric Shadows' is original in its own way, but shows a lot of older Chinese pictures, honoring them. The performances ask again for comparison with 'Cinema Paradiso'. The adults are good, especially Ling Ling's mother, but the kid performers here are the greatest thing. The movie shows them most of the time when they are around six years old. The method children around that age tell anything that comes to mind is perfectly portrayed here, with two effective children for Ling Ling and Dabing. Much of the humor in the movie comes from them and their moments together.Although the final moments of the movie enjoy in a conventional method the scenes work. Everything comes together, making 'Electric Shadows' a true complete picture, available for larger audiences than a lot of another Asian films. The movie has its flaws. It shifts back and forth in time where it does not really have to, like the director just chose a couple of moments to do so. The same with the narration. Sometimes we hear Dabing and his life story, sometimes we hear him reading her diary, sometimes we hear Ling Ling herself like she is reading or writing her diary. Both things do not really matter, but present how difficult it is to create the right choices, especially when you direct a movie for the first time.


Maybe it was because I was on a flight from Beijing where I fell in love with the country and the city, or maybe because I compared it to the another Chinese movie they showed on the plane (it was horrible). Anyway, I loved this movie. In contrast to most American films I too often see, this movie had a storyline that captured you from the start, and never allow you go. Add to this intelligent child actors performing and acting their age (unlike 30-year old Dakotas or Haley Joels), and otherwise nice performing all the way. No explosions, vehicle chases or guns being fired, but more capturing and exciting than most movies containing those types of elements. I can't wait until I receive to see the next film with this director, these actors or now anything with anyone involved in the making of if this movie. Did I mention that the photography/scenery is stunning?
