Abstract

Films in the genre called ‘main-melody movies’ have come out thick and fast to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the founding of the Chinese Communist Party. Island Keeper, directed by Chen Li, has largely beat competition and won the recognition and acclaims of the general public. It’s a story about the lofty aspirations of obscure characters – how the couple Mr. Wang Jicai and Mrs. Wang Shihua brave ordeals to remain on watch on an island. A narrative based on documentary approach, the movie focuses on the personal world and colors of Mr. Wang Jicai, yet Director Chen Li’s characterization of Mrs. Wang Shihua also deserves our analysis and interpretation[1]. This paper attempts to examine female characters in ‘main-melody movies’ through a feminine prism.
