Liu Zifeng took away the "Zhao Shuxin character" of Chinese films

  Liu Zifeng became an instant hit by starring in Zhao Shuxin in the movie "Black Cannon Incident".

In the Dictionary of World Film Appreciation edited by Zheng Shelley, he commented on "Black Cannon Incident" as follows: "Black Cannon Incident" is the first time to deeply reflect on the cultural mentality of intellectuals on the Chinese screen.

It not only pays attention to the influence of external social and political factors on the fate of intellectuals, but also penetrates the lens into the inner philosophical and cultural level that forms the specific character of Chinese intellectuals, and integrates philosophical thinking on the fate of intellectuals... The film successfully shaped the "Zhao Shuxin Character".

It not only pays attention to the excavation of the external political factors that form the character, but also pays more attention to the discovery of the internal cultural gene that forms the character.

  In Zhao Shuxin, played by Liu Zifeng, people can not only see the excellent aspects of traditional culture inherited by Chinese intellectuals, such as patriotism and national integrity, but also allow people to see Chinese intellectuals, especially The so-called inferior nature of the petty intellectuals, such as the mental state of being indifferent and submissive.

The former should be raised, the latter should be abandoned.

  The reason why Liu Zifeng's performance in this film is successful is that his handling of Zhao Shuxin is not technical or "expressive", but natural, and the audience can even feel that Liu Zifeng himself is a traditional Chinese intellectual. one of the.

Zhao Shuxin, played by Liu Zifeng, does not have the externalization and boldness of Lu Yanshi played by Chen Daoming. He seems to be like a pond of spring water. Live but still, although still but Yun.

If one sentence or one word is used to describe Liu Zifeng's handling of Zhao Shuxin, the most appropriate one is "a scholar".

  From Liu Zifeng, we can see a series of Chinese characters such as Deen in "The Peach Blossom Weeping and Blood", Dai Liyan in "Spring in a Small Town", Jue Xin in "Home", and Xiao Jianqiu in "Early Spring in February". The shadow of traditional intellectuals; we can even feel the image and spiritual connotation of intellectuals in traditional Chinese opera, such as Zhu Maichen in "Lanke Mountain" and so on.

  Regrettably, it is difficult for us to see the images and living conditions of real Chinese intellectuals in today's Chinese films, let alone the humanistic thinking brought about by them.

Our presentation and presentation of this changing world are more external, simple and superficial. Whether it is the director's thinking or the actor's temperament and performance, it is difficult to give the audience a rational thought.

  What is really lacking in Chinese films and even in the current Chinese literature and art is the "Zhao Shuxin character" - the thing that was taken away by Mr. Liu Zifeng.
