This year is a quite special year. The giant global finance risk happend, Mr. Ma became taiwan's presendent and previous presendent Mr. Chen was caught in the jail...etc. In the many crazy things, the super taiwan movie Cape No.7 became the focus, it grabed everbody's eyes for the moment.
For a very long time, everybody did see taiwan's movies no more. Marketing seems to decide the pity destiny of taiwan's movies. However, Cape No.7 created the miracle in the past several months. For the time being, the movie let taiwan's people take a fresh breath in terrible circumstance. Either children or adults, all ages are attracked by the movie. But why? There are several reasons I think.
The movie illustrated well-known place where is a relaxing small town in south of taiwan. In the movie, all ages can find a piece of corner belongs to themselves. Even, everybody, from the ages of 8 to 80 years old, can search a kind of words belong to their own age. All peoples are connected with the film. To go to see the movie became a fashion. When people met with each other, the first sentence is "Did you see Cape No.7 ? If one didn't see it, he or she must feel strange and fall behind. Finally, almost people went to see the movie.
To be honest, the scenarios are quite nice. The whole story told a beautiful love, a hopeful life and a possibility for people. It also expressed a helpless old period and the vital spark of humanbeings. Even if, we don't know what will happen tomorrow. Only one thing we need to concentrate is present, i.e. at the moment. The past sad, glorious and happy time will keep in our memories and pass through our mind like a song or a spring.
Anyway, I think Cape No.7 is a wonderful and warm movie. I hope more great taiwan movies can be produced in the future.
After reading Matilda written by Roald Dahl, I became his big fan.
I found his audio collection including ten children's books. The set of the audiobooks are included The Twits, The Witches, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory...etc. I really like them very much.
I try my best to listen the audiobooks when I drive my car to go to company. In the beginning, it was so difficult to me. However, I listend again and again, I found the speaking speed seemed to slow down gradually. In oder to improve listenning capability, generally I didn't read the book before listening the audiobook. Until several times listening, I started to check the whole story of the book. I think the way is useful to me for improving English skills.
Roald Dahl is a famous UK writter. His stories fill with imagination and amazing subjects. Sometimes, I wonder the books are not for children because the subjects of the stories are so weird and even evil. However, I am still attracted by the stories. No doubt he is a great writter. I also think I will be a faithful reader to him.
