I can't remember how many times I've seen this movie that I like best , Since I remember watching this movie for the first time 2007 English listening class in my freshman year , Teacher Liu Wei led the movie , I remember the teacher introduced the background of the film to us many times , For example, Morgan Freeman's position in Hollywood is similar to that of Wu Mengda in Hong Kong films , Golden supporting role ; For example, this film ranks first in video rental in the United States all the year round . it is reported , Bob, who plays Warden Norton · Gunton still has a large amount of film dividends every year .
Sometimes I feel discouraged when I meet difficulties , We'll find out about this movie , Go over it again . It's not just Morgan Freeman's magnetic voice over , The wonderful performance of the actors , Wonderful stories and classic lines . Outside the film ,1994 The movie of is also a classic , cause 《 The Shawshank Redemption 》 Be reluctant to lose 《 Forrest Gump 》 No Oscar . Read an analysis article , Talking like 《 The Shawshank Redemption 》 It's black , Exposing some of the human nature and system of gray films in the Oscar defeat 《 Forrest Gump 》 Movies full of positive energy are normal , After all, the Oscars have their own considerations .
Shortly after the film started , Andy asks his cellmate to drink beer and smiles strangely ：
You could argue he’d done it to curry favor with the guards. Or, mabye make a
few friends among us cons. Me, I think he did it just to feel normanl again, if
only for a short while.
You'd say he did it to please the guards . Or maybe it's to make a good relationship with us . And I think he's just trying to feel normal again , Even for a short moment .
This is a movie without a hostess , There are few female characters in the film , Friendship between Andy and Rhett , Positioning in different situations , Andy knows it , In the eyes of the prison and other managers , Just a cheap criminal , There's a little detail that's really interesting , Play for the inmates in Andy 《 Figaro wedding 》 When , Looking at Andy as a friend locked in the toilet, the C.O. has been calling Andy , And the chief of the C.O. heidley, calls his name Dufresne . About the influence of the music on the prisoners ：
I have no idea to this day what those two Italian ladies were singing about.
Truth is, I don’t want to know. Some things are better left unsaid.I’d like to
think they were singing about somethings so beautiful,it can" t expressed in
words,and it makes your heart ache because of it.I tell you, th ose voices
soared higher and farther than anybody in a great place dares to dr eam. It was
as if some beautiful bird had flapped into our drab little cage an d made these
walls dissolve away, and for the briefest of moments, every last man is
Shawshank felt free. To this day, I don't know what those two Italian ladies are singing , actually , I don't want to know . Yes
It's better to keep some things . I think they are singing some very beautiful and moving stories , It's too wonderful to say To express in words , It makes your heart ache . Let me tell you , These voices soar into the sky , Flying more than anyone's dream
Far away . It's like some beautiful birds fluttering to our brown cage , Let those walls disappear . In that moment , Everyone at sharkburg feels free .
And the reason why Andy plays music is that after Brooks got out of prison, he killed himself because he didn't adapt to the new environment . The film is institutionalized by Rhett's words ：
“These walls are kind of funny like that. First you hate them, then you get
used to them. Enough time passed, get so you depend on them. That`s institution
alized. The walls in prison are really interesting . When I first went to jail , You hate the walls around you ; Slowly , You're used to living in it ; In the end, you will find that you have to rely on it to survive . This is institutionalization .”
Andy was locked up for two weeks , In conversation with the inmates , Talk about your understanding of music and hope ：
（On playing opera records in the prison） Andy Dufresne: Here’s where it makes
the most sense. You need it so you don"t foget. Foget that there are palce in
the world that aren’t made out of stone That there’s a---there’s a---there’s
something inside that’s yours, that they can’t touch. ( Play opera records in prison )
Andy . Dudelan : That's what it means . You need it , It's like don't forget . Forget whether there is stone in the world A place around the head . Forget your heart and your own things , Something they can't touch .
That's hope , Hope to make people happy .

After Andy escapes , Red has a classic about Andy ：
I have to remind myself that some birds don’t mean to be caged . Their
feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away, the part of you that
knows it was a sin to lock them up. DOES rejoice. Still, the place you live in
is that much more drab and empty that they’re gone. I guess I just miss my
I have to talk to myself often , Some birds can't be caged . Their feathers are too bright . When they fly away , You know in your heart that it's a sin to lock them up , You will be inspired . however , As soon as they leave , The place where you live is even more grey and empty . I think I really miss my friend .
Actually, about life , That's how it turns out ：
I guess it comes down to a simple choice:get busy living or get busy dying.
Life can be reduced to a simple choice ： Or busy living , Or hurry to die .
We will always remember ：
Remember, Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things and no good thing
ever dies! remember , Hope is a good thing , Maybe it's the best thing , And no good thing ever dies !
