The balloon incident in the film is one of the most popular choices in Northeast China. The real news that happens from time to time, and the romance and symbolism of balloons, echo the red balloons in the dream in the middle of the film. This is the director's personal aesthetic orientation. I agree with his orientation, and we all like it."

Talking about "contributing his voice" to the movie this time, Zhang Yi said, "The actor hopes to be reserved and not to reveal everything. Although he can't sing well and dance even worse, this movie It was really under their coercion and inducement that I gave everything to them. I was very happy, I had a great time, and I opened up all my most authentic things."

In the post-screening exchange, some attentive viewers also discovered that there were obvious changes in Shi Shi's tattoos before and after the movie. Director Zhang Dapeng interpreted that Shitou was "tolerant", but his "love" for Qianqian also led to subsequent turning points, so there was an additional "bird" representing freedom in the final story. "Stones yearn for freedom from beginning to end, hoping to fly freely in the blue sky and white clouds like a bird." Many viewers were moved by the father-daughter relationship between Shitou and Qianqian in the movie, and generously shared their own and family experiences during the post-screening sharing.
