Hot mother’s love

  Hiding your feelings clockwise in each delicate pleated bun, let it heat up and ferment, sprinkle with white flour, and then place it in a steaming cage, waiting for the taste of the mellow home to overflow. The overlapping layers of white mist blur the Chinese-style maternal love, but the moment behind the cover is lifted up, and it is too hot to bear the affection.
  On February 24, 2019, at the scene of the 91st Academy Awards, the most striking one was an 8-minute Chinese cartoon “Baby Bao” without any lines. It won a good score of 7.3 points with Douban score. Oscar “Best Animated Short Film” award. The film begins with a pair of plump hands skillfully making buns. It tells the story of the modern “empty nest mother” with the traditional ancient music and the morning routine of Chinese full-time family women as the background.
  The protagonist is an ordinary middle-aged woman. After several years of hard work, her son grew up and left home, and her husband was busy with work. The lonely life that changed in a flash made her extremely lonely. When eating breakfast alone on a certain day, the snow-white buns in the cage suddenly burst into tears and cried and had a life, which made her rejoiced. From then on, she took the buns with her and raised them as her own children. Unexpectedly, the little bun has grown up with her own independent will, and the desire for freedom is in conflict with her meticulous love, and even strongly resists the previous intimacy and wants to go out. After the extreme panic and heartbreak, the hostess swallowed the buns in tears, eliminating the possibility of leaving the house. This exaggerated to amazing and thoughtful ending seemed to unfold in a dream, she dreamed of a long-lost reunion, and everything was still when she was lying on the palm-shaped path.
  This should be an anthropomorphic and warm family fragment, but it was folded and disassembled like a delicate fold of a bun in a few minutes. After the expansion, the love is uneven and unbalanced. The folding is a combination of traditional food to tell the Chinese style maternal love, using the most home-made food as the love connection between parents and children, tearing apart the gap between the two generations. Gauze, tied the memories in the beautiful years that have been spent together. The “bao” in the film is a homophonic “treasure”. Baozi is the epitome of children’s fairy tales, from strong and cautious daily care, to placing all emotions and center of gravity on it; engaging in strong participation without size, and using clumsy methods. Keep it away; from being unable to break into its inner world anymore, to emotional breakdown causing double trauma. The fragile and hot mother’s love aroused different responses from the audience.
  The director of this film is Shi Zhiyu, 30 years old this year, is a Chinese-born female director born in Chongqing. She is not only the first Asian female director of Pixar Animation, but also the first female short film director, and “Baby Bao” is her first animated short film. Shi Zhiyu once invited his mother to act as a consultant, trying to portray the true experience of herself and her parents, and the whole story was inspired by the words of her mother when she grew up: “I really hope I can turn you back into a baby and stuff it back into my stomach. “This is what many Chinese mothers have said, which seems to be a joke and objectively reflects their unhappy lonely old age and imposed love, and food is the most gentle expression of Chinese affection. People use the ancient taste To identify the direction of home parking.
  Shi Zhiyu said: “Many Chinese people are not accustomed to express love in words, but in actions. Therefore, I hope this is a ‘visual’ story, characters express emotion through expressions and actions.” In fact, no matter which country Parents, after crossing geographical barriers, treat their children with the same mood, but with very different expressions.
  Another feature of the film is that there are no lines throughout, and only the emotional outbursts and climax bridges express the emotions that the protagonist can hardly suppress. The attentive audience also observed the supporting father ’s negligence, which caused the current status of Ms. Bao ’s “widowed parenting”, but also aggravated the extreme tilt of her life and excessive anxiety about raising children. The final beam is the end of the imaginary style, about the reconciliation of love and love flow. The son brought his own small family back into the original family, and relived the childhood food with her mother, helping her to let go and accept the established facts of her son growing up.
  In “How Do We Be Fathers,” Lu Xun once said this: “Awakening people, in order to liberate young people with the elders of Shun, need to clean up the old accounts while opening up new paths.” Carrying the heavy burden of the attack, he shouldered the dark gate and let them go to a wide and bright place, and lived happily thereafter. ”
  At that time, we poured our feelings clockwise into each delicate pleated flower of the bun, let it heat up and ferment, sprinkle with white flour, and then placed in the steaming cage, waiting for overflowing childhood memories. The overlapping layers of white mist moisten the eyes after reunion, but the moment behind the cover is lifted, we no longer have dim love for our parents.
