Real power and profound reflection -- on the mention of criminal officials in the great Song Dynasty
For me, this play, whether my love for her, memory or her influence on me, can rank in the top ten in my drama history, second only to the four famous works of the old version. In parallel with them, there are the following films: Qia classmate youth, big house gate, Emperor Hanwu, etc.
The premiere of the Song Dynasty is05Year. At that time, I was only the second day of junior high school, but I had read a lot of ancient and modern literary works, knew some things about the rise and fall of ancient and modern times, and especially loved ancient costume dramas. Alas, there are too few high-quality historical dramas like the romance of the Three Kingdoms. When05When the trailer of the Song Dynasty was broadcast in the first half of the year, the strong ancient style made me look forward to it very much. Now I still remember that the trailer said "he solved countless cases in his life stayxxLooking for clues in Stars from the three places on both sides of the Strait work together to build Perform for youxxEternal injustice The criminal officer of the great Song Dynasty Central one Shock ascension marvellous "Really wonderful" naturally makes my expectation a little more. It should be said that the film did not disappoint me. The first choice that moved me was the attitude of the creator. Except song's father and son, the other characters in this play are fictional, and the plot is mostly re created. Therefore, in essence, this is actually a drama. But to our great surprise,From the selection and performance of actors, to the layout of screen scenes, the grasp of tone and charm, the authenticity of clothing and props, the ancient style of character language, the depth and desolation of soundtrack reading, and even to the depth of thought and the strength of reflection, the play shows that it is almost beyond the innovation, seriousness and creative realm of historical drama. Not to mention, compared with the dramas that are all made up and disorderly, they are also very different from many bad dramas that make people laugh under the banner of historical drama, such as the new Three Kingdoms, Zhang Juzheng and the Kangxi Dynasty, and even close to the romance of the Three Kingdoms, the great emperor of Han Wu, the rule of Zhenguan and the Ming Dynasty1566And Yongzheng Dynasty.This play made me know Kan Weiping, a director with profound skills. Later, Wu Chengen and journey to the west, which was co directed with Liu Xiaolingtong, was also directed by him.
Let's get down to business and talk about my views on the great song dynasty.
The attraction of the Song Dynasty to the audience is obvious. On the one hand, the Chinese people have a strong "good ancient" mentality since ancient times. From Princes and nobles, presidents and chairmen, down to the common people, few people like to talk about the frequent historical themes of the spring and Autumn period and the Warring States period, the struggle between Chu and Han, the Three Kingdoms, and the situation of Sui and Tang Dynasties, which are reflected in the ancient times, That is, novels with ancient Chinese historical themes emerge in endlessly, with a large number of sweat. There is a saying that "it can be signed and put on the shelf with the official history"; In the modern society with the accelerated pace of life and the prevalence of fast food culture, this ancient mentality has not changed much, but the form of expression has a new look - the prosperity of historical drama. On the other hand, as a TV play, the primary purpose is to make money. If you want to make money, you have to win advertising support and improve ratings. Naturally, attracting the audience in front of the TV play is the primary task of the TV play, and the suspense reasoning theme is undoubtedly a good choice, especially in CCTV, which has always been broadcast on a stable channel. With the combination of these two aspects and the influence of the central government, it is impossible for the great Song Dynasty to be angry.
With a narrative structure similar to journey to the west, the great song dynasty connected cases one by one and gradually reached a climax. In each unit, there were many guest stars of powerful famous actors, which were both good-looking and surprising. In terms of technique, the music with strong ancient charm and suspense and the playback lens from time to time naturally enable the audience to enter the world of the play and investigate and arrest criminals together with song Tixing. Such an experience is naturally quite enjoyable. I think these are the reasons why Song Dynasty attracts most of the audience.
But for me, there are two points that attract me more in the Song Dynasty. These two points can be summarized into two words: truth.
First, the acting skills of the stars, the first choice is he Bing. And many have seen a lot90In the s, he Bing's little people's plays had different friends. I officially contacted him from the great Song Dynasty, so I looked at his greasy little people after watching the great song dynasty. It's really not like acting alone. I was shocked by his solid acting skills. The script sets Song Ci as an honest, good and promising official who is technically superb, superb, morally almost flawless, public-private, loyal to the country, has no personality (in fact, he disdains to be familiar with) worldly wisdom, and is quite insensitive to children's and women's feelings and the coldness and warmth of officialdom. He Bing shows these aspects perfectly. Naturally, his appearance is not handsome enough, but his ordinary appearance helps people pay more attention to his acting skills and the plot of the TV play. Especially his small eyes are full of thinking, shrewdness and justice. They are very involved in the play. In addition, his own cadence training makes song Tixing full of drama in front of us, It's hard not to integrate into it (Wang Qingxiang in the second part of these points is not very cold. His eyes and temperament have always felt that he can't enter the play, and his voice is not well matched. It's dubbing as soon as he hears it, which is very fake). After talking about Song Ci, it's natural not to mention his biggest opponent Diao Guangdou (I saw a friend say the name is a metaphor for Lai Chang Xing, suddenly realized). I believe that like me, before watching the great Song Dynasty, I didn't expect that Guo Da, who has always been famous for his sketches, could have such solid and profound acting skills and perform one of the most charming corrupt officials in history Greed and corruption are needless to say, but it is amazing that they have insight into the world and are able to do so. If he Bing's Song Ci is full of drama, almost every hair of Guo Da's Diao Guangdou shows a strong flavor of drama. It's nice to see the opposite play between the two ™ It's a great enjoyment. It's endless. In addition to the two leading roles, yinggu's innocence, kindness and justice, Constable Zhao's simplicity, kindness and bravery, Xue Tingsong's city government and anxiety, Xue Yuzhen's virtue and wisdom, and a group of court officials such as Cao Gang, Feng Yushi, Wu miaoshui and Shi Wenjun also showed thousands of people and faces, which was too busy to answer and enjoyed. One of the performances of mature TV dramas is to pay attention to the sophistication, nature and multi-level of actors' acting skills. In this regard, the dramas such as the mention of criminal officials in the great Song Dynasty and the big house gate are well deserved good dramas.
The second truth is the values and almost ubiquitous tragic atmosphere that I am surprised and admire in the play. Just as the ending song says, there are many wronged souls who sigh for a long time. Yes, it doesn't count1840Later, we will say that in the ancient China of more than 3000 years, in how many times of governance and chaos, there are countless unjust cases and souls that can not be cleared up. This involves the deep-seated national character and institutional reasons of our nation. In short, under China's increasingly strengthened autocratic regime, politics is not exposed to the sun and known to the people, but in a state of secret operation. It is not accidental but inevitable that this rule is becoming more and more corrupt and declining. The tragedies of the two Song dynasties are just an example of thousands of years. If we only look at the part of the great Song Dynasty, it is easy to mistake him for the same story as Bao Gong, Shi Gong and Ji Gong. It is the reason why people expect honest officials or capable peopleyyIt's just a story. But when I saw the back, especially the last case and the last episode of Song Ci's heart statement in front of his father's tomb: "today, I understand that it's useless to rely on us to try the case and arrest the murderer, clear up the grievances and eliminate the violence."The great song dynasty opposes the pedantic and useless traditional values of "Ming monarchs and clean officials can clear the world", so as to guide the audience to think about the human nature, culture and system of ancient China. From this point of view, although the great song dynasty shot the ancient society, it did not have the decadent flavor of praising the "prosperous age" and "Ming Jun" emitted by the mediocre historical drama, but showed the creator's deep reflection on the human nature, culture and system of the ancient society, reflected the valuable calm judgment and observation, and showed a strong thinking spirit of modernity. It is precisely because of this sober and profound understanding of inevitability that the great song dynasty was filled with a sense of tragedy almost from beginning to end, and the whole play had a lot of freshness and charm.The cold tragic color is just like that of Xue Tingsong when he left. In the twilight, the faint mountains in the south of the Yangtze River, the gurgling water, the curved bridges, the standing pedestrians, the galloping horses among the trees, and the returning guests on the water filled the picture and the whole play with desolate, sad and particularly elegant colors like ink paintings; The charm that runs through heaven and earth is just like Song Ci's mind when he swaggered towards the bumpy life of serving the country and the people in the solemn mountains and flying Bai Lian after kneeling in front of his father's tomb. The tall and straight characters, firm steps and generous scenery remind me of Wen Tianxiang, who has been loyal for thousands of years: "Heaven and earth have healthy qi, which is manifold. The lower is the river and the upper is the sun and the star". It reminds me of Su Dongpo, who goes east of the river: "I am good at raising my noble Qi. I do not stand by my form, do not rely on my strength, live without waiting for life, and do not forget with death. Therefore, it is a star in the sky, a river and a mountain in the earth, ghosts and gods in the quiet, and people in the bright." it reminds me of the arrogant and unyielding Gu Yanwu: "Heaven and earth save liver and gall, and rivers and mountains read sideburns."
This unique color, this majestic charm, makes the plot and characters of the play lifelike and connected with the traditional Chinese poetry and culture. Song Ci was placed in the national soul like Wen Tianxiang, Su Dongpo and Gu Yanwu. The waves washed sand and real gold began to appear, which raised the realm and mind of the play to more than one level, so that the unique2005In the summer of, looking at the newly moved empty home and the clouds in the West like gauze and brocade, I always have a grand feeling of being between heaven and earth and traveling in the universe. I think this is the spiritual infection and edification brought by excellent historical plays.
Third, the reality is that the props, settings and buildings in the play are really close to the history. They are full of strong song style, which is much higher than those garbage dramas that shoot the Tang Dynasty but use the Qin and Han palaces. I think there are three steps in the Song Dynasty Dramas I have seen that most accord with the style of the Song Dynasty: the old version of Zhao Kuangyin, the water margin of CCTV, and the criminal officer of the great song dynasty (among them)2All of them are fictional works, which is enough to make our producers ashamed). The technique of the whole play is also realistic. It exists like a god like Zhan Zhao and Yuan Fang. It doesn't exist at all. It makes the audience feel a kind of down-to-earth fun of solving cases and costume drama. The great song eloquently proved that the real charm is unparalleled.
Of course, Song Dynasty also has shortcomings. The biggest point is procrastination. Some cases are obvious2、3The episode can be finished, but it must be torn down5、6For example, the story that the child broke his mother's heart was told three times before and after. It was really wordy. Some conversations could be simplified, otherwise it would be a little "lazy woman's foot binding smelly and long" I feel that I have to fast forward from time to time when watching with the computer. What's more, there are some unreasonable plots and specific scientific problems that really need to be polished. However, gold is not enough, and flaws do not hide the jade, whether in10Years ago or now, "the great Song Dynasty" can be called a work of conscience, which is enough to represent the highest level of ancient costume dramas and even historical dramas. It is a blessing for the audience to have such works. It also draws a new line to remind and spur the later creators.
