Watch "Our Distance from Evil", you can't help but break down in front of the TV to wipe away tears, but at the same time, but at the same time, we are quietly cured by the play. In the play a few scenes of "open the door to go home" moment, we see the broken home, but also see that they did not give up back. The couple came from completely different backgrounds, and they felt pain in the face of huge conflicts, but not because it was hard to get home, but because they knew they never stopped craving a home.
Since the taiwan drama "Our Distance from Evil" began, several issues have been dropped. We have seen taiwan's social events brought to the fore again over the years, and we have seen the collective trauma of the masses being exposed again, and we have spent the night discussing and speaking in the community, waiting for the screenwriters and directors to take this group of heartbroken people to where they will go, so as to give ourselves an answer.
The show's fan page reads, "Those tears last night, did you follow?" "Handkerchief is not enough, prepare a towel. We hold the remote control, have not yet come out of Song Qiao'an's funeral mood, but also fall into Li Xiaowen's "media killing" grief complaint. However, in the cone of the human intercourse, we are actually also through their plight to survive, sobbing and quietly cured.
And the characters most often envision the path to healing themselves, often the one that goes home.
Every door opens, walk back to a home
If you've found out, the show is especially often captured on the characters' "homecoming. The cameras take the moment they look at each other's way home, how their parents look, take the elevator of the building, take the stairs of an old apartment, use a key-turnlock or magnetic card to sense, and open the door, the moment they realize the moment they go home.
Although it is often broken.
Li Xiaowen's noodle shop was smashed by the crowd, their family huddled in the iron door crying; Song Qiao'an's cold furniture tones, the sound of unstoppable quarrels; should be the family suffering from a halliac disorder of mind brother, and even with a knife to the side . . . The moment you open the door, the real scene of a social family; you know the expectation scent of opening the door, but most of the people you see are very depressed and powerless.
"Going home" is difficult, but the play does not ask us to just indulge in that difficulty how difficult, but reminds that even if there are difficulties at home, but no one has given up.
Because they still believe that home is their root and belonging. Just as the cameras often take them to look at the warm photos of their broken homes, or childhood memories, the cognition and practice of love comes from home, so even if the home makes them feel bad, desperate, close to their families and want to hurt each other, they still trust home. This firm belief, or do not want to give up the establishment of their own family.
We still keep seeing the moment of turning the key, followed by the characters looking forward to opening the door and saying, "Dad, Mom, wife, I'm back", or those who are still drifting outside the tourists - sent to the spiritual hospital should be, because the drug treatment has been a bit unadult, but trying to spit out only words group said "I want to go home, I'm sorry I was wrong, Let me go home. 」
At this moment you will feel as an audience, your heartache is not because it is a tragedy, not to go home difficult. But the world is in turmoil, we deeply aware and look forward to the warmth of home.
Tell me, how can I protect this home?
Ding Meimei's mother in the play has always attracted my attention. Warm yellow lighting, neat furnishings, depict the standard of the middle class comfortable home. More importantly, the family also has a kind and gentle mother, with his hands open to meet the weak and helpless daughter.
After experiencing so many broken, icy home, whenever the lens moved to the beautiful mother's house, the audience always had a warm feeling that could rest a little. But beyond the emotional pause, more often than not, I'm thinking about how this "perfect family" is at the heart of the whole play - if my family has a murderer.
Wang, a human rights lawyer for the perpetrators of the play, insists on things that are not understood by most people in this society. And his wife, Ding Meimei, as a mother, could not accept her husband's plea for the murder of two children, the marriage of the two people hit the rocks, into a frozen period.
In the constant climate of panic over social homicides, Mei Mei could n'go of her husband, who, ironically, seemed to be standing on the opposite side of her children, and decided to move back temporarily in fear and disappointment.
And at this time, Wang Amnesty suffered a major blow from the defense process, he put himself drunk, broke into the beautiful mother's home - this warm, not yet "polluted" by society's safe haven. He in front of his wife, father-in-law and mother-in-law in front of a wobbly and loud complaint of justice injustice, even we can not help but pinch cold sweat for him, but hard to calm down, hard to listen to his word.
He was particularly sad at this moment, he knew that the original home is no one, no one can talk to him, he came to his parents- in-law's home. Even though he knew that no one in the house would understand him, he came because he still wanted his family, and he spoke out, as if to express how much he hoped someone would be like his family and take on and endure the pain of his moment.
Thank you for letting me go, have a home to go.
"Not everyone is born with a choice, we are not like you." Wang, who confessed to his wife for the first time, never had a happy home.
Wang Amnesty has only a broken childhood, and look at his own year also almost misguided, "nearly killed people", and choose to help more of the community's fellow passers-by;
These two seemingly distinct people, in the conflict and heartbreak, we are afraid of the possibility of broken marriage, but at the end of the day see Mei Mei choose to go home, re-burning a table of hot dishes for her husband.
"Thank you, let me have a home." Recall that Wang pardoned Mei Mei's hand and said it sincerely. He didn't have a happy home, but he wanted to build one for himself. Although we know that after this sentence, there is a greater sense of uneasiness and uncertainty; Wang is eager to have a home, but before then he wants to solve the inner uneasiness of his self by helping the marginalized in this society. Mei Mei, she is not unable to understand her husband, but she is more than an ordinary mother, she has a real fear of fear, want to protect their own home and children.
What caused Mei Mei mei to regain the courage to decide to continue to support the relationship?
The anxiety in Meimei's heart is still unresolved; the warm thinness of this scene will not be the end of the couple's finale, they still have to meet more and more difficult challenges. But we know that these two people from completely opposite family backgrounds form a new marriage family, because the idea of "wanting to go home" links two people who are working together for such love.
They have such great resistance, but to become a family is courage, to go home is to look forward to; the anger, fear and timidity of the group will not make society better, the home is broken, also self-healing, and eternally, as a healing window for this wounded society.
