On the night of September 21, 20th Showa, I died.The line at the beginning of the film gripped my heart, and in a bloody red, a teenager began a memory, a memory of his soul, that he had died. This is destined to be a tragedy…The lovely little Setsuko is digging a grave for the dead firefly. The elder brother Seta comes and asks her sister what she is doing. Setsuko says, “Making a grave. I heard from my aunt that Mother was dead and in her grave.” After listening to his sister’s words, clear too tears finally came to her eyes, their mother has been killed in the air raid, and he has been hiding from his sister that his mother is not well in the hospital. Setsuko crouched there and muttered sadly, “Why did you die when you were sick…”

Lovely knot! When she lived in her aunt’s home, she would suddenly think of her mother in the middle of the night and cry constantly. But now she had to silently accept the reality that her mother had died, and she did not want to live in a dependent life or suffer from her aunt’s disdain. She moved to the cave with her brother to live and depend on each other, she was only a four or five year old child.

War let clear too and section lost his mother, lost home, although they can luckily escape the bombing of the plane, but escape the entanglement of hunger, lovely section, that holding a candy box happy jumping and cheering finally can eat candy children finally did not escape hunger and rheumatoid these two death, her brother in her hand to bring back the watermelon, but no longer open your eyes, Before dying, she told her brother in a weak voice: Brother, thank you!

Seeing this, my tears came down again, it touched the softest part of my heart, and I have to accept the cruel end of a beautiful life destroyed!!At the end of the film, echoing the beginning, Keota, a tough Japanese teenager, soon dies of starvation on the streets. Brother and sister finally live a happy life in another world; it is a dark red world, fireflies flying all over the world.This is a moving Japanese animated film directed not by the famous Hayat Miyazaki, but by Isao Takahata. This is really a touching film!

After watching this movie, I want to express my opinion about Chinese film and television.

We used to be poor, so we were eager to show off after we had money; We have been bullied, so after standing firm first to laugh at the opponent, toward the opponent spit a few, tell the opponent, Lao Zip stood up; We were weak, so we have to be strong now. We were, we are, and we will always be strong.

Our film, about the description of the war, never “show weakness”, “mine warfare”, “tunnel warfare”, “Railroad guerrillas”, “plain guerrillas”…… We are wise and brave, the enemy is weak and weak; we are strong, the enemy is weak; we always win, the enemy always loses… Too many of our movies show our bravery, wisdom, tenacity and strength, but there is no human expression, no real history that people can feel. Are we as invincible as in the movies? How many of our men are dead? How many enemies are dead? How much of our country was lost? How many traitors, Japanese rebels, white army…?

If you can’t even move yourself, how can you move your opponent? How do you make your opponent confess his SINS? Because you did not psychologically conquer the opponent, conquer “little Japan”.

We did not move our own movies, not to mention the movies of opponents, because we do not want to “show weakness”, we are afraid to expose their own weakness, their own smallness, we like to mold themselves to be extremely strong. “Hands Up”, “Little Soldier Zhang Jiao”, “Bright Sword”… “The whole people watched with delight and admiration, but it was only a kind of collective masturbation. What I saw was that Chinese films imagined their opponents to be incredibly powerful, while we ourselves were the opposite; I saw countless Ah Q, male Ah Q, female Ah Q, old and young Ah Q artificial performances and cheerful faces……

Sixty years after the founding of the People’s Republic of China, the reform and opening up, and three decades later, we have become stronger, but we still do not have the courage, or the consciousness, to express our real history, especially the history of the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression in the form of film and television, and do not try to move the opponents, to move the Japanese people who are just as human as we are.

Saw Rou Shi’s “for the slave’s mother”, I shed tears; Read Lu Sun’s “Sad Passing”, I sigh. But so far I have not seen a single Chinese movie that makes me cry for the suffering of our nation. And “Little Japan” “Look Home”, and today I just saw the “Goodbye Firefly” (should be called “Firefly Tomb” more appropriate), I have been the most hate for the Japanese devil tears, because I saw from these two movies is not the “Japanese devil” I knew before, but the flesh and blood, worthy of sympathy, living people, is a lovely knot. Is a strong Qing Tai, is a good human nature.

I have also seen the “little soldier Zhang Jiao”, so smart, so brave children, such children did have, and still have, Enchain earthquake hero Lin Halo is one of them, but our history is more like the simple heart, war destroyed young life, because history is not only the history of heroes, It is also the history of the common man, the history of each of us. Why neglect to express the common man, to express ourselves? The expression of universal humanity

Only by showing the universal humanity can classics be produced and Chinese films and TV shows have a way out. Only by letting the current Japanese people see the festival and the Qing Dynasty of China in that war can they realize the SINS they have committed and plead guilty. Our films and TV shows should move them as they move us, instead of blindly showing foolishness and imagination. To make movies that has neither ideas nor art.
