"The kite runner" book report

This is a story talks about the friendship between a 12 year old Afghan wealth man’s son Amir and his father’s servant’s son Hassan.The author did not use very beautifully written, she just pale soft text exquisite outline of family and friendship, but give me a shock. When the servant of Hassan -- Amir's best partner, other rich master siege of violence in the corner, Amir -- Hassan's most trusted friend, huddled in the dark corner silently watching, until the tears still do not come forward to help Hassan, I heard the sound of a broken heart. The pointer can be fate did not stop.Amir as cowardly and extreme fear and ashamed, unable to face Hassan. Finally, even on him, so that he may always left the house. Later Amir learned that Hassan was his half brother, remorse and pain entanglements.

When the middle-aged Amir accidentally learned that Hassan's message, he was regardless of danger, headed home to Afghanistan, started the salvation. But time is dangerous, because it can make everything changes. Finally returned to his hometown of Amir, witnessed the change, the war continued, The people are destitute. At the same time also met childhood old housekeeper, see the deserted house, also learned the news of Hassan's death. The death of Hassan, the redemption of Amir did not stop Hassan's only son, Sohrab fall into enemy hands. Amir's childhood, childhood cowardice and guilt around the middle-aged Amir.

A redemption, start again. At the end of the story, Amir saved Sohrab, could this Sohrab was emotional pain to completely lose feeling, only speaking of kite -- that Hassan and Amir childhood favorite plaything, will unconsciously laughed. Half of the book is written the hero soul salvation. He struggled to find Hassan's son, Sohrab, catch the mind drift has long kite, once again become a dignified and imposing man, life gate finally open to him.

Amir's end, by comparison, is happy. He finally understood the meaning of each other -- at the cost of life. In the book the emotion is not only the family, not just a friendship, as long as they are able to sink the heart to be read to the people, will be one directed at the heart of emotion, will he had mood from the index, such as hurt someone come and hesitation; critical weak helpless relatives face; danger of panic flawless; love at first when the restless; lost loved ones when the sad and lonely; should shoulder the responsibility of selfish prevarication, and impulse often surge of remorse, inferiority and atonement.Such feelings without pretence any, is the real reaction of a person without thinking in the face of changing that moment comes, is one of the most intimate in the dead of night when the Ammonites chest ask. Hossein's pen is like a sharp knife, will the true human nature depict almost cruel, but not curry favour by claptrap. Perhaps the end of the story is not perfect, perhaps somewhat bitter and sour. But such is life, mistakes, missed, and then to save life.

A World Without Thieves

An engaging and beautiful crime romance

Professional thieves Bo (Andy Lau) and Li (Rene Liu) con a businessman out of his BMW, and head for the hills to lay low. They visit a temple, where Bo busies himself relieving pilgrims of their wallets and phones, while Li earnestly prays. Shortly thereafter, she announces to her lover that she wants them both to abandon their thieving lifestyle and settle down. When he refuses, they argue and split.

On foot and hopelessly lost, Li encounters Sha Gen (Wang), a simple man who wants to find a wife and settle down with the money he's earned. He helps her find her way to a train station, where she's reunited with Bo. Touched by Sha Gen's open honesty and trust in his fellow travellers, Li adopts him as her little brother, and decides to protect him and his money on their journey as an act of redemption. However, while Bo wants to get back together with Li, he has his eye on Sha Gen's moneybag. To make matters worse, a whole gang of thieves is on board the train, and they all wouldn't mind helping themselves to the easy cash. It's thief vs thief as the train rolls through gorgeous landscapes, and Li has her work cut out defending Fu from all sides, not least her unscrupulous lover.

I've only seen one of director Feng Xiaogang's movies before, 'Big Shot's Funeral', and will admit to not being blown away by that. This, however, is a very engaging and beautifully shot romantic crime comedy, and I enjoyed it immensely. The product placement that seems to have

offended many viewers slipped by me, and the pro-communist message simply fits the character of Sha Gen and did not seem out of place. I certainly didn't feel anything getting forced down my throat.

Andy Lau manages to be a likable rogue, while Rene Liu plays her role with a lot of heart. Their on-screen chemistry is perfect.

There are a number of 'fight' scenes between the thieves, that put me in mind of the 'God of Gamblers' series of films. Instead of fighting with Mah Jong sticks or flinging cards at each other though, the thieves duel with razor blades as they try to poach from one other. These scenes are inventive and done with flair and just the right amount of CG trickery. I did have a problem with the ending, which - while being necessarily melodramatic - seemed overly manipulative. To compensate for this, Rene Liu's acting at the conclusion should leave all but the hardest of hearts unmoved. I have to admit with some shame that this is the first film I've seen starring this astonishing actress. It will definitely not be the last.
