Micron is serious
Religious-themed movies should be one of the smallest and unpopular types in the mainstream movie market, especially in a country where materialists are the majority.
In such a capital, investment must see the return in the era of material pursuit, and even films like "Hundred Birds Chaofeng" that were pushed some time ago needed to be directed at that time Kneel down to seek traffic and attention to gain counterattacks, not to mention religious movies.
However, no matter how bad "Hundred Birds Face the Phoenix", no matter how unattractive the subject matter is, after all, there is a willingness to go out The director of, plus, it is also a feature film, once the plot itself is attractive, it can still be fascinating.
But religious movies don’t even have this advantage.
In fact, everyone knows that as long as they are not cultists, most people with belief in their hearts are firm and kind. It’s just that knowing is one thing, and being able to watch related movies is another It’s going to happen.
And this movie that I pushed this time, It’s such a movie. Some people started to fall asleep after watching it for ten minutes, and some people cried after watching it.
Of course, due to a blunder, inexplicably, it has become the highest box office in China in recent years(Because there is basically no religious film of the same type that has entered the public eye).
Kang Rinpoche, Meili Snow Mountain, Anima Qin Mountain, and Gadujuewo of Yushu in Qinghai are also called the four sacred mountains of Tibetan Buddhism. Its high raised head, like a large pyramid, stands on On the plateau of Alipuran, this is the main peak Gang Rinpoche with an altitude of 6,656 meters.
Mount Kailash is a sacred mountain among multiple religions. Sanskrit is called Mount Jiluoso, Gangren The northern foot of Boqi Peak is the birthplace of Shiquan River in the upper reaches of the Indus River.
According to legend, Yong Zhong Bon religion originated from the mountain; Hinduism believes that the mountain is Shiva’sThe residence, the center of the world; Jainism believes that this mountain is the place where its ancestor Rais Haba had attained the Tao, and Tibetan Buddhism believes that this mountain is the residence of Shengle King Kong, representing immeasurable happiness. The believers continue.
This is also the destination of the pilgrims in Gang Rinpoche.
"Kang Rinpoche" tells a story of in the ancient village of Pula in the hinterland of Tibet, the village The story of 10 ordinary Tibetans and a pregnant woman from home on a pilgrimage to Gang Rinpoche 2500 kilometers away.
Pula villager Nima piled up at his father After he passed away, he decided to fulfill his father’s last wish and took his uncle Yang Pei on a pilgrimage to Lhasa and Mount Kailash.
The year of the horse is the year of the horse, which happens to be the once-in-a-century birth year of the God Mountain Gang Rinpoche. Many people in the small village hope to join the pilgrimage team of Nyima.
In this team, there are pregnant women who are about to give birth, butchers on the wall, and teenagers who have been disabled since childhood. Everyone has different stories and carries their own Hope.
To go to Gang Rinpoche, this one The team embarked on a pilgrimage that lasted a year and was more than 2,500 kilometers long.
The whole movie except the beginning The part simply goes beyond the main topic. Basically, more than 90% of the plot in the entire film. No, it should not be said to be a plot, it should be said to be a picture. It is to record that this group contains various The pilgrims rushed to the GangRinpoche’s pilgrimage.
This movie, in fact, how I feel after watching this movie,It is more like a genre that is not well defined, between movies and documentaries.
There are no personal settings that a normal movie should have throughout the entire process, with emotional conflicts, ups and downs of the plot, and characters against the scenes. Basically, even if it is filmed according to the structure of a documentary, it is just a fusion of movies Narrative. In fact, there are very few lines.
At that time, because there were some big Vs, I don’t know whether it was a mistake or a variety of reasons. Recommended, It happened to coincide with the same period that almost none of the movies could hit the market during the cold period, so "Kang Rinpoche" inexplicably became an extremely rare box office in that year. 100 million religious movies.
The release of "Kang Rinpoche" seems to have caused a lot of controversy.The different views of the film and the different views on religious beliefs make the film’s reputation tend to be divided into two levels.
Although the video’s ratings on Douban and other review sites have been consistently good Achievements, but can still see some very negative comments.
The supply of this category of movies is still very small. Without evaluating the quality of the movie first, such movies can be released and get Box office recognition is an improvement in itself.
The film’s lens feel is very smooth, some people may think this A simple shot is probably not enough for a movie, but whether it is classified as a documentary or a feature film, In such a simple and pious story, such a gentle and simple shot is Appropriately.
Including the plot setting of the film, the same is true, a walking tour of a group of worshipers, simple It's not like a movie.
So what the movie finally shows is really like a plain life , On the long path of worship, we can see that these Tibetans really regard this path as their own lives.
The film does not have too much rendering and conflict, only the four seasons along the way , And everything experienced by the pilgrim team.
During the one-year pilgrimage, the companions included pregnant women, elderly people, and children. As a result, new lives came and old people passed away on the journey. Everything happened so suddenly, and everything seemed destined to heaven. One year Like a lifetime, it is naturally changing, and the constant isHuman heart.
Whether it’s wind, rain, cold, snow, or rough roads, whether it’s a man-made accident or the skyIn the face of misfortune, everyone follows their beliefs and original intentions when they set off as always. Kang Rinpoche is their end, all their beliefs and respect.
On the road they did not show how noble or How pious, this kind of worship is as common as three meals a day.
When they stopped to eat, their speech and expressions did not seem to change much from at home. Whether it is suffering, tiredness, or frustration, it should be in the process of worship and in life.
SoThis is also the reason why the audiences of this film are so polarized.
People who don’t like it will fall asleep in less than ten minutes or watch the screen and curse and never watch this kind of film again, but there will be a few people who will be watched this way after seeing it. I was shocked and moved by the power of the intangible spiritual belief, and I shed tears unconsciously.
In such a materialistic age, watching such movies, There is often a wonderful "sense of isolation".
I feel, It’s hard to imagine, this is the A group of people living on the same earth, even the same country, and the same continent are experiencing life.
Because the difference between their lives and ours is so great that the sense of separation during the viewing of the movie even made the editor feel a little discomfort from nowhere. Of course it’s not belief in them, but This sense of separation is so severe that at a certain moment, people always realize how small they are.
The editor has always believed that one of the reasons for the very unique charm of the film and the necessity of its existence is that During the two hours of watching the movie, you can be completely immersed Experiential. Of course, this immersion will be more obvious if you are in a movie theater.
Let you live in this flashy society From time to time, through this sense of immersion and disconnection, realize that the joys and sorrows of human beings are not interlinked, and realize that there are people on the same earth and the same land whose lives are different from yours. Of course, this difference is often material, but sometimes it is spiritual-This kind of surprise and experience from time to time, I think it is very necessary.
It can Help you to withdraw a little when you are helpless and weak, to experience the feeling of another kind of life. It can help you stay away from suffering for a short time, and it can help you realize that life is floating, without being attached.
Perhaps just from this perspective, movies like Gang Rinpoche shouldn’t be extinct.strong>
