Chang An Movie Reviews

Cartoons for adults to watch

Here are some things that adults should be able to see from this film: 1. Artistic creation requires full freedom; 2. Top artists may be more or less insane or in a drunken state to inspire them; In feudal autocratic society, artists and anyone can be deprived of their freedom at any time by those with higher status and power than you; 4. Youth is short and beautiful.

I don’t know to what extent this movie can reproduce the real Tang Dynasty, at least the demeanor of Tang Dynasty artists has been portrayed with sincerity by the film creators. Including the creator and singer of the ending song, Luo Dayou, whose singing style resembles that of Li Bai after getting drunk. Perhaps ancient and modern times are interconnected.

Guns and Poetry, the Spiritual Homeland of Chinese People

1. Preface

A few days ago, I went into the cinema and didn’t know which one to watch. ‘The Disappearing She’ grossed a huge sum at the box office, while ‘In the Octagonal Cage’ came from behind and had a good reputation; There is also the newly released action blockbuster “Mission Impossible 7” by Tom, which is exciting! But I ultimately chose ‘Three Thousand Miles in Chang’an’, a film with relatively lower popularity but high reputation. The most important reason is only one. I can imagine what all the other movies look like, but I can’t imagine this movie, so I want to watch it myself. As it turns out, I didn’t make the wrong choice. This movie is novel and highly completed, it’s really a rare masterpiece!

2. Plot

This film is a historical and biographical one, depicting Gao Shi and Li Bai, two individuals with vastly different personalities.

Similar to the narrative perspective of “Shawshank Redemption,” this film portrays Li Bai from a bystander perspective, but with a dual male lead model, Gao Shi’s role is far greater than Morgan Freeman in “Shawshank Redemption.

The main storyline is the lives of Gao Shi and Li Bai, and the director also knows that the suspense of the main storyline is not strong enough, adding a war line where Gao Shi’s army is being approached by Tubo.

The main focus of the main storyline is mainly on the rich and unique personalities of Li Bai and Gao Shi, as well as their exciting lives, as well as the shining historical figures that appear in their lives, as well as those exquisite and unparalleled poems (poetry lines can be found throughout the film).

Gao Shi and Li Bai, from youth to middle age, and then to old age. The changes in several stages of life are also well portrayed.

Watching their lives makes me constantly reminisce about my own life. After thousands of years of shuttling, people’s state remains the same, striving for life and ideals.

At that time, the Gaoshi family declined, and he failed the imperial examination repeatedly. It was difficult for him to gain recognition for the Gaoshi family’s marksmanship. However, Li Bai came from a family of businessmen, with unparalleled talent, but did not have the qualification to pass the imperial examination. It seems that the lock ability bug was created by heaven to balance Li Bai’s talent bug. He can only take the path of recommendation, but still faces obstacles due to his family background. Both of them can be said to be small-town swot, who were severely beaten by reality.

There is now a saying that in the current era of class solidification, it is difficult for a humble family to have a noble son. What I want to say is, is it possible that you are not even humble. The humble family refers to a humble family, specifically to a lower power aristocratic family, also known as the commons, not the poor class

In this film, Gao Shi belongs to the humble family, while Li Bai is not even a humble family. Highly adaptable and pragmatic, since our strength is not enough, let’s settle down and improve ourselves. On the stage, Li Bai, who had reached the full rank, despite repeatedly encountering obstacles, was indifferent to setbacks and wandered around, indulging in dissipation and enjoying himself, indulging in the flourishing Tang Dynasty.

This film repeatedly examines Li Bai, who is immersed in hedonism, from a perspective of Gao Shi, with a critical eye. Gao Shi also accused Li Bai of wasting his talent, while Li Bai’s friends said that the various obstacles to achieving his talent made them only immerse themselves in pleasure, which seemed to be a response to lying flat in the present.

The different attitudes towards life between the two also affect their respective paths in life. In the end, Gao Shi established his achievements and became a governor, becoming the only great poet of the Tang Dynasty to be granted a vassal. Li Bai, on the other hand, foolishly waved flags and shouted for the rebellious Prince Yongwang, almost facing death row and execution. Fortunately, with the help of Gao Shi and Guo Ziyi, he was spared from exile and was later pardoned by the emperor in the White Emperor City.

This is the first level of narrative in this film, at the plot level of personal fate.

Li Bai failed to achieve his ideals after entering the world, so he emerged as a Taoist and asked for immortality. People who speak of being exiled to immortals always forget this mundane world. Throughout Chinese history, literati have always had this bad habit. If they want to apply themselves to the world, cultivate their character, regulate their family, govern the country, and pacify the world, they must devote themselves to the officialdom. Even Li Bai, who is the craziest and coolest, has this bad habit. It’s really not cool.

When I was a student, I read books and looked at Chinese history. Whether Zhang Heng or Fan Zhongyan were some well-known people, they were basically officials. Originally, their main job was to be officials, engage in scientific research and write articles, but only in sidelines. For thousands of years, culture and technology have carried the attributes of bureaucracy and politics. The bureaucratic system monopolizes the vast majority of resources, holds the power of discourse, and is a scholar of agriculture, industry, and commerce. It is really not cool to break through the scalp and strive to become a superior person.

This needs to be traced back to the source and is also related to the Qin system after the Shang Yang Reform.

Going too far, in short, the director has connected the emotions of great celebrities from a thousand years ago with those of ordinary people today, and the troubles of great historical figures are similar to ours. This greatly enhances the sense of immersion and resonates with people, which is very good. Moreover, it is more deeply demonstrated that behind this millennium long history, there is a connection between the traditional Chinese culture and spirit of patriotism, birth and entry into the world.

The director places personal destiny in the context of history and the times, and their personalities and postures also change with the times. This makes the characters and plot more full and solid, and also enhances the style of the story, enriching and enriching the entire story.

This is the second level of narrative in this film, at the level of family, country, and era changes.

The third level of narrative in this film refers to history and national spirit.

In history, Li Bai had a wide range of friends, but the director chose Gao Shi, which naturally had a profound intention. In addition to their vastly different personalities and family backgrounds, what’s more important is that besides being a poet, Gao Shi was also a warrior. The Gao family wielded firearms to make enemies afraid, and after the An Shi Rebellion, he even joined the military. And Li Bai, compared to his superb swordsmanship, poetry is his ace in the world. Gao Shi and Li Bai formed a CP, with a combination of guns and poetry, combining hardness and softness, and being proficient in both literature and martial arts. This is the traditional imagination of Chinese people for all talents and also for a perfect country.

Compared to other dynasties such as the Song Dynasty, the Tang Dynasty, as the pinnacle of China’s feudal dynasties, was praised by the Chinese people not only for its highly developed culture, but also for its explosive military value, which made it popular among the four barbarians. This is the intention of the director to use Gao Shi and Li Bai to construct the entire story.

Looking at the title of “Three Thousand Miles in Chang’an”, what are the details of this “Three Thousand Miles”? The original title of the film came from the Ming Dynasty poet Chen Zilong’s “March 3 in the Army”:

Resigning as the new champion of the family, Hu Yannan marched south to conquer the grasslands in autumn. Dreaming of 30000 miles in Chang’an, the sea breeze breaking the western end of the moraine.

A movie about the Tang Dynasty, the title of which is taken from a poem by a poet from the late Ming Dynasty, because it is an ambitious work, and the director not only wants to write about a certain person, a certain dynasty, certain poems, but also wants to write about the spiritual home of the Chinese people.

Chang’an is a synonym for ideals.

As Gao Shi said inside, “As long as the poem is there, the book is there, the Yellow Crane Tower is there, and Chang’an is there.” This is a very good line. The poetry of the Tang Dynasty is a dazzling pearl of Chinese civilization, which to some extent shapes the spirit of our nation.

Thirty thousand miles is not only space, but also time. It is the distance from the border protectorate to Chang’an, and it is also the distance in Chinese history. Chang’an has become an image of people living in peace, the country being prosperous, and civilization thriving. Therefore, nearly a thousand years later, in the late Ming Dynasty, Chen Zilong wrote a dream of Chang’an, which was a reflection of the shattered family and country. “Chang’an” has already flowed into the blood of the Chinese people with those great poems, becoming a spiritual totem like existence of the Chinese people.

This film incorporates many classic poems that have been passed down for thousands of years, greatly enhancing its artistic appeal. It is even more impressive that culture is the foundation for the existence, development, and cohesion of a civilization.

Three narrative levels, step by step delving into the theme, depict the spiritual home of the Chinese people behind the guns and poetry.

Their experiences vividly narrate the rise and fall of the Tang Dynasty, which can be aptly compared to the current online world.

In today’s abundant online world, where diverse opinions and performances are readily available, it’s strikingly reminiscent of the Tang Dynasty portrayed by the director Junwei Xie in this movie. Everyone has the opportunity to showcase their talents, express themselves through various means like poetry, music, politics, or dance to gain recognition and success. Particularly, the choice of Li Bai, a figure familiar to every Chinese, serves as a stark contrast in the rise and fall of the great Tang Dynasty.

Li Bai’s wild and unrestrained lifestyle, when analyzed through his lines in the film, reveals that he too faced hardships. His quest for enlightenment led him to learn avian magic, and his military pursuits led to an unconventional expertise in wrestling. If we were to compare the other outstanding talents of the Tang Dynasty like Du Fu, Wang Wei, Wu Daozi, and even Li Bai himself, using Gao Shi’s down-to-earth and stable approach, it might seem a bit exaggerated and biased. After all, as Gao Shi himself pointed out, serving with utmost dedication doesn’t guarantee people’s affection because what he solidified was the dynasty, while scholar-officials like Du Fu, Wang Wei, and others aimed to improve the system for the betterment of the people. This parallel can be seen in today’s international society, where beloved social media influencers may not necessarily be at the forefront of defending their nation’s interests.
