Beijing, October 28 (Reporter Yuan Xiuyue) Zhang Ailing’s novel adaptation of film and television plays has always been a hot topic. “The first furnace fragrance” has attracted much attention since it was released

although Ma Sichun and Peng YuYan’s versions of Ge Weilong and Qiao Qiqiao were rated as “casting failure” by netizens. However, with director Xu Anhua, screenwriter Wang Anyi, photography by Du Kefeng and music by osamoto, many people still have expectations for the film

however, the first stove of incense failed to turn over. Douban scored 5.5 points and the box office just exceeded 30 million yuan

What’s the problem? Different from the simple rotten film, the problem of “the first incense” is not the poor shooting, but the “screwing” of the content, which is described as “a sense of disobedience” in the words of netizens

“The first furnace of incense” was ridiculed as “the first furnace of steel” and lost in disobedience?(1)

this is first reflected in the selection of corners. Some netizens have moved out the description of the male and female protagonists in the original work of the first incense. Whether it is Ge Weilong with “plain and beautiful little convex face, thin nose and fat and round mouth”, or Qiao Qiqiao with “no blood color, pale lips and plaster like”, it seems that they are far from the appearance of Ma Sichun and Peng Yuyan

many people’s criticism also focuses on this aspect. Ma Sichun is not like the Shanghai girl described in the original book, and Peng Yuyan is not like a mixed race beautiful man who can make people fall in love at first sight. Some netizens commented that the two people in the film did not seem to be flirting, but Peng Yuyan told Ma Sichun that the private education arrangement plan was not “the first furnace of incense”, but “the first furnace of steel”

in the netizens’ Tucao, two fragments make complaints about it. One was Qiao Qiqiao’s sister who warned Ge Weilong: “mixed race children are a little gloomy and have little girl spirit.” as soon as the voice fell, Qiao Qiqiao, with bare arms and obvious muscle lines, came in

one was the servant girl, who said that GE Weilong studied hard all night and lost a circle on his face

it is true that the incompatibility between actors and characters will make the film less flavor and sense of substitution. But the actor’s performance is more critical than appearance. In literary adaptation films, the roles are more complex, and actors need to fully understand the inner world of the characters and grasp the tone of the performance. Sometimes it’s a thousand miles away</ P>

Ge Weilong and Qiao Qi Joe’s first solitude should be a crucial paragraph, but the film has become a slightly oily and dissolute child, and he has flirted with deep hatred and deep hatred. What do you stare at me? Why can’t you see, I’m your eyesore? “” it’s a thorn in the face. I’m afraid this nail is not out of the way. ”

in the novel, Ge Weilong was manipulated and seduced step by step by his aunt, gradually indulged in the material world, and degenerated from an indifferent female student to an advanced social flower. This is a tragic story of the decline of life, but Ge Weilong is not a simple white rabbit. From the fact that she didn’t tell her parents to go to her aunt, we can see that she is also smart and has her own plans

unfortunately, Ma Sichun did not show Ge Weilong’s complexity. In his early performances, Ma Sichun either tilted his head and smiled, or bowed his head shyly. There were too few levels of performance, as if he were playing a youth film. On the contrary, in the later stage, his performance gradually improved

is the first incense a love film

in reading the first incense, Ma Sichun once wrote: “Zhang Ailing’s inferiority can’t exchange for her lover… Because love is not the inferiority of one person, but the courage of two people.”

at that time, it also caused controversy, and from the perspective of the film, in the film “Love” seems to be the protagonist. Apart from the actor factor, it is more likely to be the pursuit of director Xu Anhua. She has mentioned many times that the film is a love film.

Xu Anhua has remake Zhang Ailing’s novels twice, including “love in Qingcheng” in 1984 and “half life” in 1997. The remake of “love in Qingcheng” failed, and “half life” It is considered to be the best performance of Zhang Ailing’s works on the big screen. As for adaptation, Xu Anhua once said: “you can only adapt Zhang Ailing’s novels, you can’t make use of the topic.”

the first incense ” There is no change in the plot, but the focus is different. In the novel, Ge Weilong has a clear growth line, from secretly trying on gorgeous clothes at the Liang family mansion, to gradually becoming a new star in the communication field, to falling in love with Qiao Qiqiao, breaking his dreams, and finally compromising with reality and becoming another aunt. However, in the film, Ge Weilong’s addiction to material desires is not emphasized, and the theft The play of stealing clothes also flashed by, which led to ge Weilong’s weak staffing in the early stage and turned into a “love brain” who can’t love 。

Ge Weilong’s infatuation with Qiao Qiqiao is only one of the many reasons for her life tragedy. However, in the film, Ge Weilong’s unreasonable love for Qiao Qiqiao seems to be the main object of the story. Zhang Ailing’s song of compassion for GE Weilong’s fate It has also become Ge Weilong’s Ode to love.

this has caused a lot of controversy. Especially in the early publicity of the film, it has applied some marketing routines of love films on the short video platform, such as “scum man’s routine”, “Playboy’s idiom”, “saw himself in the first incense” and “give love without a farewell day” Wait, highlight the love element in the film.

, some netizens call it “sinking youth, sad and emotional marketing”. Netizens also say that publicity is very fragmented, and tiktok is a local flavor. In micro-blog, Wong Kar Wai,

, is a simple summary of “slag man” and “grieving girl”. It attracts many netizens to praise and discuss, but obviously, this is not a novel or even the core expressed by the film. This misplaced publicity virtually deepens the sense of disobedience of the film.

the first incense Not so bad, but also bright. For example, her aunt’s story has been enriched. Two flashback clips explain her experience as an aunt and get a glimpse of the source of her life tragedy.

it was commented that Zhang Ailing not only saw the jewels of the world, but also saw the rotten sores of the world, which is called “gorgeous and desolate” Both. However, in the adaptation of many film and television plays, only gorgeous or bizarre stories are seen. This may be a greater difficulty in the adaptation of Zhang Ailing’s works than in the selection of roles. (end)
