  Original title: “Sniper” releases director special Zhang Yimou tells the original intention of creation

On January 12, director Zhang Yimou entered the Spring Festival film “Sniper” for the first time and released a special directorial special. Zhang Yimou emotionally told the original intention of creation, relying on Chinese power to tell Chinese stories, and insisting on the realistic concept of creative tribute. On the first day of the new year, the audience will be brought to the audience the touching story of Chinese snipers in the War to Resist U.S. Aggression and Aid Korea.

The director’s special of “Sniper” rewinds the time to the period of the War to Resist U.S. Aggression and Aid Korea with a piece of historical material of the “Cold Gun and Cold Gun Movement”, “In such a cold winter, we fought the weak against the strong, and defeated the enemy armed to the teeth with very simple weapons. “, with director Zhang Yimou’s narration, the heaviness and cruelty of the War to Resist U.S. Aggression and Aid Korea are fully revealed in the pure narrative.

In order to get close to the real battlefield to resist US aggression and aid Korea, Zhang Yimou led the production team to many places, not only shooting in the weather of minus tens of degrees, but also “doing not start shooting until the real snow”, so that the audience can feel the significance of resisting US aiding Korea in his mind to the greatest extent. with the spirit of the Chinese people. At the same time, director Zhang Yimou also adheres to the Chinese narrative technique of “One Leaf Knows Autumn”, presents the whole picture of the war with the profile of a sniper battle, and completes the return to documentary aesthetics with the most calm and rational lens language.

The special episode also shows more story lines of the film. The squad leader played by Zhang Yu leads the fifth squad of snipers to guard the intelligence to save their comrades. They fight heroically in the adversity of the disparity in the armament of the enemy and the enemy and the harsh combat environment, and fight with the elite sniper team of the US military. fighting. “We don’t have any planes, cannons, or tanks.” Facing the overwhelming equipment advantages of the U.S. military, the soldiers of the fifth squad raised their guns and aimed their guns again and again in the trenches made of ice and snow, protecting their comrades-in-arms and the motherland with their lives. Seeing the bloody sacrifice of comrades in arms, “Squad 5 is still here!” Director Zhang Yimou poured his feelings for the volunteer soldiers into the creation of the film, bringing the audience back to the war-torn battlefield.

The movie “Sniper” is a narrative innovation of the collective memory of the war against the US Aid Korea. By showing the group of snipers, a partial and comprehensive description is used instead of a macro-level generalization. As director Zhang Yimou said in the trailer, “The story of a sniper is only partially valuable.” Live people, live Chinese, they represent the eighth company and five classes, and also represent the 2.4 million volunteer soldiers who entered the DPRK and the souls of 197,653 heroes.


“Sniper” is based on the little-known but significant “cold gun and cold gun movement” in the War to Resist U.S. Aggression and Aid Korea. It tells the story of five snipers fighting against the American sniper elite in a situation where there is a huge disparity in the armament of the enemy and us. It showed the tenacious spirit and flexible combat wisdom of the Volunteer Army of “killing steel with gas”.

The film is set for the first day of the new year. This is not only Zhang Yimou’s first foray into the Spring Festival, but also dedicated to the most lovely people with thousands of lights. As director Zhang Yimou said, “(Resist America and Aid Korea) is for what, for victory, for victory!” Under the brutal war of “one fried noodles and one snow”, Chinese “snipers” used crude rifles to create “one enemy with one shot” ” record. At the happy moment of family reunion, we should remember that they exchanged their youth and life for today’s China. I hope they can see how beautiful and peaceful the place they guard is now.
