The movie "Home Coming" is based on the real evacuation of overseas Chinese and tells the story of Chinese diplomats who went through many dangers in a war-torn foreign country to evacuate their overseas Chinese and return home. The film creates characters through realism and de-heroism, enriches the emotional expression of new mainstream movies, breaks the fixed hero image in previous new mainstream movies, and creates a three-dimensional and full character image. It is an innovation and pioneering effort to tell Chinese stories well and convey the voice of China to the outside world. It has achieved the aesthetic innovation effect of new mainstream movies and has made new progress.
