Red is the color I hated most because it symbolizes violence and
makes people feel nervous. However, in our Chinese culture, red is the
propitious and lucky color for happy events such as wedding. In the
movie Red Sorghum, red is a key clue appearing from the beginning to the
end and it conveys complex meanings.
In the beginning, we saw the red of humanism. At first, we saw the
red clothe the heroine—-my granny wore. It was supposed to be a happy
event, however, our heroine—-my granny was not happy at all for her
father made her to marry an old man with lepriasis in exchange for a
mule. When the field of red sorghum came into our sight, my granny’s
strong character started to be seen. The red sorghum grows wildly
without care of anyone. My granny and grandpa are both people with
strong characters. They are the typical of Chinese people in hard times.
Men have physical strength and spirit of fighting for what’s right
against bad guys; women do not submit to their fates and struggle for
Besides, the red sorghum liquor reflects the red of freedom. When
the men with underpants holding the big bowls sing the song for newly
made sorghum liquor, my granny was relieved and delighted. Those guys
are with great pleasure doing their job. They enjoy this kind of free
and fruitful life. Wine is the symbol of carnival as well as natural
being. What confuses me is that my grandpa peed in the wine bowl and the
wine became the best wine. Maybe it’s a joke but it’s more than a joke.
My grandpa is not an ordinary person and he is a hero. So there must be
something special for heroes. The spirits shows real heroes’ courage and
In the end, the red blood and the red sun sing high praise of the
life. All the people except my grandpa and my dad died in the battle
against the Japanese army. They were brave and clever enough to fight
against the invaders. My grandma died so dramatically that I couldn’t
believe it. How could they know that the Japanese were coming and they
still asked for food delivered? That’s ridiculous. Anyway, the song my
dad sang for my grandma was really moving especially with the background
of solar eclipse. Maybe my dad grew up and defeated the Japanese. Just
like the sun disappeared, the Japanese also was beaten back home.
After watching this movie, I have a special feeling for red and I
don’t hate it anymore. Green, in our minds, is the color of nature and
therefore the color of fertility of life. While, red, which is the color
of vigorous red sorghum and heroes’ blood, is actually the most sacred
symbol of life.
