Here, in a word, prove that you've seen the secret corner:

"Climbing together?" 

"Do you think I have a chance?" 

"Thank you, brother Chaoyang." 

"In the blue sky and the Milky way, there is a small white boat..." 

…… 

Hidden angle is the first part of the play. 


After reading, my mind was full of:

Qin Hao's bald head, Zhu Chaoyang's eyes, Chen Lin's red toenails, Pu Pu's "brother Chaoyang", Liufeng mountain, Xiaobai boat...... 

Above all, it comes from the abundance of details in the whole play. 



 01 the secret of the ending song 
 01

How many details are there in hidden angle? 


 the sequels are all part of the plot. 


The lyrics of the final song in the second episode implied the ending of Zhu Chaoyang's father Zhu Yongping, "the dancing father fell to the ground.". 


The final song of Episode 9 selects the backstroke 
 death in the revolving apartment 
 about the suicide of patients with depression. From the song title to the composition, it implies that Pu Pu has 

In the 10th episode, before the finale, Yan Liang runs back to his apartment to search for Pu Pu Pu anxiously, 
 the slow motion slowly pushes towards Yan Liang's desperate face 
, and the final song "crane a little smaller than a young man" starts before the black field. 

This is a more depressing and depressing song by Ding Ke, the music director of the play. The former and the latter two episodes respectively use music that is close to sad music (some netizens jokingly call it "Underworld music"), 
 has already made clear the fate of Pu Pu Pu. 


12 episodes of positive film, 11 pieces of final song, combined just the volume of an album. Hidden angle is probably the first domestic TV series with different ending song 
. I didn't finish listening to the final song, but I didn't see it in vain. 

Xin Shuang, director of hidden corner, was a former member of Joyside, a well-known punk band in China, 
 serious playing band 
, and his most well-known work before was also the sound synthesis city of magic music. 

All of these 11 final songs are from 
 top independent bands and musicians in China: Houhai shark, Muma, residents in Xiaojuan & amp; valley, PK14, luminous curve, anti general, Joyside... 

"Band director" created the unique technique of 
 hiding the plot in music 
. The voice, color eggs, composition and lyrics are all integrated into the mood and atmosphere of the main film plot, which makes the audience and the audience unable to get out of the story for a long time, so-called "top". 

With the combination of sound and film, hidden angle has grasped the key point of "suspense crime drama" in the initial production concept: it is never the story that hits the heart, but the emotion. 


However, in the 12 episodes, there are only 11 episodes. Guess which one is missing? 
 in the most emotional episode 11. 
 at the end of this episode, the only "video egg" in the whole play is hidden. 

When Zhu Dongsheng's son died in the end of his life, it was the last part of Zhu's life. 

In addition, in the prelude to the finale of Episode 9, behind the last mirror of Episode 12, and before the finale of Episode 12, the director has hidden 
 "voice egg" 
, one of which reveals the internal motivation of Zhang Dongsheng's wife becoming a demon and loving Pu Pu; on the other hand, it implies that Zhu Jingjing incident has another secret, which are important hints to the core point of the drama. 

With the "argument" of voice colored eggs and the hints of the diary of Episode 12, we will find that the whole play is as the Descartes story told by Zhang Dongsheng in the children's palace, and the audience is faced with two versions of the story: 


One is the "fairy tale" 
, the other is the secret truth: Zhu Chaoyang is blackened, Yan Liang, Pu Pu and Lao Chen all died miserably. 

In the play, Zhang Dongsheng asks, "would you like to believe in fairy tales or in reality?" In addition to the play, the screenwriter also asked the audience through Dongsheng's words: 
 do you want to believe the end of the fairy tale, or do you want to explore the cruelty of the truth under the fairy tale? 


Is it a masterpiece

Three days ago, he Junyi, chief producer of hidden corner, and Xin Shuang, director of "hidden corner", both expressed a similar view: 
 even without censorship, they did not want to show pure evil. 


After watching the interview, I began to fall into a deep self-examination. Usually, we all think that it is necessary to show the evil of human nature without reservation. Therefore, we all don't like scissors. 

But the words of the chief creator reminded me whether only works like "one black to the end and all the villains" are masterpieces? 
 we are used to leaving all the pots to the censorship, but whether we ignore it or not, maybe, ambiguity is the essence of art. 


The original book of hidden angle 
 bad child 
 links the absence of original family education with the abnormal growth of children, and tells the story of several children who imitate adults to do evil and fall into the abyss of crime step by step. 

The bad boy has a positive significance of warning the world to be careful of the negative guidance of the original family to the children. However, it tends to make the characters monotonous and the story more distorted by blindly writing both adults and children to the worst. (limitations of genre fiction?) 

The original intention of the drama version is different. The main creator is not the evil itself, but the 
 psychological "motivation" behind the family, character's emotion and growth track drawn by the crime event: what kind of reason does a person choose to do evil, and whether he / she has the hardship that he / she has to do it. 

Therefore, 
 "hidden angle" puts "human" in the top priority 
, and narrative takes the second place. The people in the play are not a path to the black evil, nor are they completely innocent. At least from the part that the director shows us, we can find the ambiguity and dilemma of everyone. 

Hidden angle is not a dualism of good and evil. 

Even Zhang Dongsheng, who has three lives in hand, from the beginning, the director paved the way for his parents in law's contempt for him, his wife's indifference to him, and relatives' ridicule for him. In essence, 
 is treated with disrespect by others again and again, 
, which buries the seeds of distortion and metamorphosis in his heart. 

 in the original book, Pu Pu Pu's parents died when she was a child, and suffered various coldness, bullying, and even sexual assault in the welfare home, which made her have the same attitude towards Zhu Jingjing in the subsequent confrontation with those who committed the crime, and lost the innocence of the child long ago. 
 
 in the original book, Zhu Chaoyang's father never dared to recognize this son. He grew up in hatred and repression, and learned from childhood that people are the first and the last Set. The death of his sister, father and stepmother all came from his careful planning step by step. 

The adaptation of the drama version puts more 
 "ambiguous" 
 on Pu Pu and Zhu Chaoyang. They have both a vicious side and a child side. What kind of children do you think they are depends on which angle the audience looks at. 

In the same 12 episode stories, some people think that Zhu Chaoyang is a good child and Pu Pu Pu is a lovely girl; some people see Zhu Chaoyang's mind 
, and 
 Pu Pu's "green tea whore" attribute 
. If the right to choose the version of the story is completely left to the audience, is it more enjoyable than the original "one black to the end". 

Let's just take Pu Pu Pu as an example. In recent days, 
 how to evaluate Pu Pu Pu has become a hot topic of discussion 
, and some people think that she is the most frightening person in the whole play. 

Pu Pu is very observant and knows how to turn the situation around by showing weakness when it is not conducive to her. She has cheated the police twice (cheating Chen to get lost and stealing books to attract the police). She is not flustered when facing a murderer for the first time (cheating him to be a bookstore clerk), and even asking Zhang Dongsheng to treat her like a daughter, 
 is far more intelligent than her peers. 


In the third episode, there is a scene in which she spies on the singing of girls in the children's palace chorus class. The scene here is transformed into a surreal paragraph in which Pu Pu Pu meets her parents and younger brother. This is already a clear metaphor. Like her parents, her brother Xinxin has already died. 


Looking at the end of the rotating lens, 
 Pu Pu's position just blocks the original brother's C position 
, which is directly prompted by the camera position relationship. Either the younger brother is dead, or there is no younger brother at all. 

In the whole play, Pu Pu Pu says that 300000 yuan is used to cure his younger brother Xinxin, 
 but Xinxin doesn't appear for a second 
, every time she calls, she answers the phone, but she is Aunt Zhang, not Xinxin. This provides evidence for the fact that 300000 is not Jiu Xinxin. 

Perhaps, she cheated Yan Liang into taking 300000 yuan, which was not the treatment of her brother's disease at all, 
 was more likely to raise medical expenses for treating her asthma. 
 in the whole play, she is the only reason to lead the action of the children's trio. It is because of her big lies that everyone follows her into the whirlpool of events. 

Even so, the director not only does not describe Pu Pu Pu's "evil" in a positive way, but also gives Pu Pu Pu a kind face that he didn't have: loving small animals, trusting Zhang Dongsheng, and empathizing with Zhu Chaoyang's pain. And at the end of Episode 6, the director gives the three children the most romantic imagination of the future, 
 and the little white boat. 


The reason why hidden corner is so popular is that the audience enjoy the pleasure of seeking to unlock different versions of stories and find the good and evil sides of human nature under the skin. 
, listening to the human echo of "thinking about terror" a little bit, it is boring to write death like the original. 


 03 God ending saves the whole play

Let's look at the end of the book. 

In fact, when I watched episodes 9, 10 and 11 for the first time, my impression was: 
 worried about collapse. 


In my opinion, the best one is Episode 10, which is titled 
 "Uncle Zhang". 


This episode promotes the relationship between the main line Zhang Dongsheng and the three children. 
 the most classic is a McDonald's play 
. The three children, especially Yan Liang, swing between whether they trust Zhang Dongsheng or not, and the reversal of "empty memory card" is also extremely wonderful (and provides logical support for the subsequent blackout of Zhu Chaoyang). 

However, Wang Li, the younger brother of Wang Yao, is an "outsider" (Episode 8)
