These eight colorless "panda movies" are better than many blockbusters.

Stills of the movie August

For cinema films, it is very bold. Under certain personal feelings, it is more bold and wild to use black and white tones, which is indeed a big challenge for ordinary audiences.

The whole black and white tone of August is more like a dream, a dream of compressing memory, which makes us feel that summer can be short or long. Many things in Xiao Lei’s eyes are not very clear but have some vague fragments, which is an ambiguous treatment of this time in August.

The whole film of "August" is presented in black and white tones, which is very common in many movies at home and abroad. Pema Tseden, the artistic director of this film, made a film in black and white last year, and Lv Songye, the photography director of August, was the photographer of Tallow.

And "Tallow" was released at the end of last year, which is also a word-of-mouth work with rare black and white tones in cinemas today. The whole film is very particular about the scene design, similar to the general anti-golden ratio composition, and the whole film is full of craftsmanship. Although black-and-white movies are a little small, there are many movies worth recommending.

The problem that is not a problem

Mei Feng, the "imperial screenwriter" directed by Lou Ye, is the first director, taking the adaptation of Lao She’s short story of the same name as his debut. The film won the "Best Artistic Contribution Award" at the Tokyo International Film Festival last year, and then won the Best Adapted Screenplay Award and Best Actor (Fan Wei) at the Golden Horse Award.

The exquisite black-and-white photography in the film, coupled with the long lens with fixed depth of field, the overall lens scheduling is very similar to Hou Xiaoxian’s style. Coincidentally, editing is also Hou Xiaoxian’s royal editor — — Ching-Song Liao. The way an actor enters and leaves a painting is very similar to Hou Hsiao-hsien’s middle actor’s position. In order to pursue the best depth-of-field effect, Mei Feng used China’s films in 1950s for reference, such as.

The film is expected to be released this summer. If you are in Beijing, you can see it in Beijing International Film Festival in advance ~

I am not Wang Mao

Compared with films such as "August" and "Tallow", which have won numerous awards, they have ignited among film critics and reached more audiences, and are relatively smaller. No one recommended it in the early stage, but it’s actually a real dark horse, and Wang Dazhi played a brilliant role in it, showing a diaosi image vividly.

It seems difficult to convince the director Zhao Xiaoxi’s works by looking at his previous film-making resume. But in this small-budget work, he definitely threw a big surprise bomb. On the surface, it is a film with anti-Japanese theme, but in fact, it uses black humor to describe the masses of that period.

The black-and-white picture of the film finally turns into color, and the recurring windmill is a very intentional image expression. By contrast, some people can only say that there are similar treatments, but what they want to express is still much worse.

"cheers! 》

Last year, he won the Best Photography Award in the main competition unit of Beijing International Film Festival, and earlier he won the Best Director Award at the Berlin International Film Festival. Director Dura is a member of the Romanian New Wave. Compared with other Romanian New Wave directors, Dura prefers to see the present from the history.

In the form of a black-and-white road film on horseback, it shows a beautiful picture of the Balkans. The director told an unknown fable through the excavation of historical materials. The story is short and concise, but it vividly shows all walks of life in Romania in the 18th century. The use of black and white tones has restored that dirty and beautiful black and white era.

"God can look after worms, but we can’t look after each other. Live as much as you can, not as much as you want." The director cleverly used movies to tell the real society in Romania.

Ollie’s happiest day

The story tells the story of a boxer’s success and failure. From the simple plot, it seems that he can immediately become a genre film model, making works similar to this traditional genre, or such inspirational and warm films, but in fact, he has completed the anti-genre and anti-climax.

The contrasting black-and-white images weakened Ollie’s charm from the beginning, even though everyone was expecting his achievements. But as an audience, from the beginning, you will know that he must fail in the end.

So, in the whole process of watching the movie, you just watched how the boxer failed, but suddenly, you began to join in love, as if boxing was no longer important, just like Ollie himself, but he was actually a boxer who didn’t care about boxing.

This film will also be shown in Beijing International Film Festival this year ~
