A small figure of the face of the gathering of the times: "When is the moon", Ye Dejun and Liang Jiahui

The storytelling of history is not unusual, and the point of view is a difficult problem. However, the work of Xu Anhua, the director of the detailed director, always has a strong humanistic landscape regardless of the era. The main line is full of flavor, and the branch line is also intriguing; recently, the "Maylight of the Moon" has just released, in addition to the main line of heavyweight superstars, there are more beautiful warm branches, enriching the whole story.

Between 1942 and 1944, the Japanese occupied Hong Kong, and the guerrillas "Dongjiang Column" secretly rescued cultural figures. Jianghu and the people joined hands to organize young people to fight against Japan. In the era of war and the streets of Hong Kong, where the smoke was filled, the background of this era came to the hands of Xu Anhua, but it opened a life story that was very subtle. The heroes of Jianghu stood up to protect the literati and the girl who was afraid of the night. Warning; walking into the dark, anti-Japanese, worrying, aunts, and aunts, but have the courage to save lives. A small but heavy figure gathers into this unique and beautiful era. Ye Dejun, the protagonist of Fang Lan’s mother, and Liang Jiahui, who is a guest of old makeup and reminiscent of memories, are particularly eye-catching in this story.

The Dongjiang column organized the people to assist the anti-Japanese, and Fang Lan, who loves literature and art, took on the task of transmitting intelligence. The mother of Fang Lan was the portrayal of the worried mother in the chaotic era. In the turbulent times, you can't count on how great a mother should be. She is selfish, broken, and good-faced, and regards her child as the only one in her life. Like all the mothers of Greater China, she is accustomed to criticizing and concealing her fears to prevent her daughter from being protected. Although she does not know the big words, she can insist on daily complication. She can’t stop her daughter from embarking on danger. I want her to bring herself - mother, in this big age than anybody is inconspicuous, courage but not lose anyone.

From "Peach Sister" to "When is the Moonlight", Ye Dejun has already been familiar with the eyebrows of Hong Kong's old-time women, and his rough face is always a firm and elegant figure when he is wolf; rude and selfish thoughts help His own people are full of selflessness; worrying all the time, the courage to show things does not lose the young righteous. Such a small and popular character, in the delicate and precise performance of Ye Dejun, became the most beautiful branch outside the main line in the movie of Xu Anhua.

In addition, I have to admire Liang Jiahui, although he only shoulders the story of telling the past, but when it comes to the story, the thick glasses underneath the wrinkles. However, when the end of the song is scattered, the hunchback of the car, driving the door, and avoiding the invitation to work together, the move in one go to bring the current gray in Hong Kong, despite the times shifting, personnel are not right, the small people have to do their best in any era. Survival, and the story of history speaks of this, leaving the viewers to think carefully about the intriguing nature of the review.

White space and skylight in the old lane: writing the level in the sun, minimalist and gentle transformation of the old house

"Home" is the heart of many Taiwanese people. Having a house is the goal of many old Taiwanese for the rest of their lives. However, in the early days, many old houses with poor layout and left-handed right-handedness, despite having a good geographical environment, were over-repaired and demanded by the interior, which made the space stack excessive and obscured the original advantages. With the gradual prosperity of the old house in recent years, the introduction of the new generation and the introduction of design concepts have not only been refurbished and injected into contemporary design, but also retained the emotion of history and continued the life cycle of the house. This old house in Pingtung is invisible in the lanes. The second-hand half of the old-fashioned mezzanine in Taiwan makes the original pattern still narrow and dim. The heavy iron railings and traditional marble floors also calm the interior atmosphere. Taking over the design of this old house renovation (HAO DESIGN STUDIO), in the initial stage, we strive to find the balance between space and light, to design the restrictions of the original pattern, let the space play its due performance, and with the natural conditions. Complement each other. Therefore, the adjustment of "sandwich" and "staircase" has become the two major points of design. ...
