《My fair lady》观后感
“Incredible, amazing, unbelievable, fantastic astonishing, surprising…” quite a number of words like that could not wait to come out of my mouth the instantly I finished watching the movie! Specially and vividly speaking, my mouth and eyes were ALL widely open. So, you can tell, viewers!
It was not the first time I saw Hepburn on the screen, but no matter how many times I watched her films, her beauty always strikes me right to the heart.
No further admiration shall be addressed to her since there is no need to do so, for words always fail me.
Some instant feelings after watching Hot Fuzz:
Apart from her, the film is still wonderful and absolutely worthy of watching. There is no more pleasure than to enjoy this film with little snacks in your hands, and a cup of hot chocolate on the desk, and you lying on the cozy and comfy bed, everything quiet and dark outside, but warm and bright inside.
It’s not a traditionally funny movie you (at least “I” am involved~) might think it would be. However, don’t worry, it’s really FUNNY.
Made in Britain!
Actually, what attracts me most is not the beauty of Hepburn, or at least not the sole attraction to me, but the British-to-the-bone gentleman of Colonel Pickering, the dignity of the flower girl Eliza, and other small characters in the film.
Apparently, no Hollywood label on the cover, and totally originates from Great Britain. But deep inside, absolutely the Hollywood flavor! How come? (No offence!) Shouldn’t British movies be “extremely romantic, beautiful in scenery, and traditionally noble”? Oh, this movie really does a good job in shaking my stereotype!
Colonel Pickering is absolutely the most favorable character to me in this film, for he is such a kind and humorous gentleman. Now I have to admit that though US and UK both speak English, their people are both very nice, and sometimes the British are even more arrogant, I still prefer Britain. It’s the culture in their bones that sends out invitation. Nearly every educated man in Britain know how to treat a woman, that is, to treat her like a lady. Of course, Professor Higgins is a typical counterexample of that. But just look at Pickering, and those nice old chaps who sell goods with Eliza, they treat her warm-heartedly, never think of her as a poor flower girl.
- Surprisingly violent, be careful! ---Restricted.
What Eliza said in the film should be remembered by every man who wants to find a girl. “The difference between a lady and a flower girl is not how she behaves, but how she is treated. ”
Rather violent, especially in killing and bloody scenes, which reminds me of Resident Evil and CS (Counter Strike).
And it’s also interesting to see that the flower girl is always shouting one line: “I am a good girl, I really am. ” To tell people that she is a good girl, a flower girl has to shout out loud, but a lady never has to. Once she channeled her accent into the decent class, and dress properly, no one will doubt a bit about her status. In this sense, the film is very much like the one I saw years ago, the Million Pound Note, written by Mark Twain and adapted in film. Funny thing is that this film was set in London with a British flower girl, while that story is also set in London, but with a poor American young lad. How interesting it is to think that there are many rich old gentlemen in London, with nothing to do everyday but to catch a random guy on the street and make a bet. I almost been to doubt whether these two films learn from each other in terms of creating humor.
