大鱼海棠: Big Fish & Begonia


I have just watched one of the most beautiful animations. If you already like Studio Ghibli’s works, old myths and legends, crafted soundtrack and young love stories, you’re going to love this one. This made me wonder why Chinese animations are not even more popular and broadcast abroad. And you might ask for more after watching it.

I have selected some of the songs that feature in the film. Hope you’ll enjoy them.

周深 Zhou Shen: 大鱼 Big Fish, theme song of 大鱼海棠

陈奕迅 Eason Chan: 在这个世界相遇 In this world meet

For those of you who are in Mainland China and have a VIP pass, the film is available to watch on iQiyi platform:

Keep watching till the very end… Not only the ending song is beautiful, but there are precious few seconds that you don’t want to miss, in order to grasp the whole story.

BONUS: For the music aficionados, there’s a dizi cover (Chinese flute) of the theme song by Dong Min 彼岸天的海与梦|董敏笛子演绎大鱼海棠印象曲《大鱼》.

Je viens du Sud…

My neighbour doesn’t know but just the fact that he is growing plants on his rooftop makes me happy.

When it’s bright and sunny over Shanghai, like today, all I could think of is this song by Michel Sardou: “Je viens du Sud, et par tous les chemins j’y reviens…”  .
