Some people would have wonderful family, but some people might not be as lucky as others. In the short novel “Love In A Fallen City” by Zhang Ailing, Liusu lived with people that she did not like. Her family member believed she brought bad luck to them. Therefore, she chose to move out the house and traveled from Shang Hai to Hong Kong. I feel Liusu is living in a poor environment because she has to hear people talk behind her, in front of her, and insult her every day in the house. However, I think her living attitude is still positive, because she made the right decision which is to move out. It can be thought of escaping, but I feel if she talked to her family straightly, it would only increase the hatefulness between them except if she became rich one day. Most people believe escaping is not the right way to solve problems, however, in my opinion, knowing how to escaping is very important. If a person does not know how to escape and push herself/himself too much, it might cause mental problems.
This clip shows parts of the movie version of “Love In A Fallen City,” which I think it may refresh the memory of whoever have read this story. Enjoy!
Before I read “Love In A Fallen City,” I have watched the movie of this story. The difference I get from the movie and the book is that I get more about how the characters’ feeling through the book.
