电影《我在故宫修文物》自12.16公映以来,在排片不占优势的情况下,首周末票房接近400万,为尚待成熟的纪录片电影市场注入一剂强心针。除了票房上的成就,电影上映后也收获好评如潮——“在浮躁慌乱中回归安宁”、“很真实,很生活化”、“看完后给予更多的思考空间”、“人情味都在京腔十足的生活场景中缓缓流淌。”著名影评人木卫二更撰文夸赞电影“是一道小心翼翼,细碎零零但坚韧的心灵桥梁。”

Masters in the Forbidden City finally hits the big screen

After the huge success of the three-episode TV documentary, Masters in the Forbidden City, premiered on China Central Television at the beginning of 2016, a group of professional restoration experts have attracted widespread attention from the general public.

The documentary earned a high score of 9.4 points on Douban Movie, the Chinese version of IMDb, surpassing the hot documentary, A Bite of China, to become the most influential documentary of the year.

In response to viewers' growing expectations, the producers released the movie version Friday, aiming to further elaborate on the "Spirit of the Craftsman", one of the buzzwords in Chinese online culture.

According to Xiao Han, director of Masters in the Forbidden City, the 86-minute film version, when compared to the documentary, is more like an independent story with breathtaking visual effects.

"In modern society, many people are too impetuous and cannot calm down. We really hope movie-goers will set all trivial matters aside and fully involve themselves in the film. If they can gain just a little enlightenment from the movie, we will be relieved," Xiao said.

"Also, we canceled the voice-over and attached more importance to all the subtle sounds in the film. The sound of pushing a door, repairing cultural relics and the tick-tock of clocks will give the viewer a sense of peace and serenity," Xiao added.(Chinadaily)
