Mayday Chasing Dreams 3DNA Concert Movie
We watched <五月天追夢3DNA> when we finally got a copy of. The insert stories in between the movie concert are quite touching sketches of excerpts on the lives of people as they go for their dream. The portrayed how each struggled to buy tickets and witness their favourite band perform.
The first story (set in Guangzhou) depicts a girl that is a fan of Mayday<五月天>. Her dad is running a store of fish curry. She kept on asking her dad’s permission to let her go and the father has not much idea what this band is all about. Finally, the dad goes out to buy a ticket but he get’s informed that the CD stores are not selling tickets. He has to go to the internet and buy but was told that it was already sold out. Later, his apprentice gave his own ticket to his Shirfu and the Master taught his secret in cooking their famous fish ball and curry.
The second story (set in Taipei) features Ren Xian Qi and Liu Ruo Ying who both experienced being left by their partners for somebody else. Ashin <阿信> and Masha shows up supposedly wanting to ride the taxi that Ren is driving but he was so dazed at that time. They end up not being able to ride any cab and Ashin lists down the number of rejections they had.
The third story (set in Shangai) is about a guy who struggles to earn money by delivering documents to people, he mets Stone along the way, recognizes him and asks for his autograph. He then put his earnings in a can and finally was able to get a ticket. It is revealed later on that his sister who was a fan already passed away. Mayday was his sister’s favorite and before she died she wanted to watch their concert live.
In the end, all the people gathered outside the concert grounds. There was a chase scene when someone grabbed the little girl’s bag and Ren and the guy in the third story went after that person. Later, the bag was returned but the ticket was no longer inside. The
The theme song is 「OAOA（現在就是永遠）」and every time I listen to it there’s a feeling of inspiration to grasp what we have today. I also like the renditions of JiaJia家家of Mayday’s songs like「知足」played during the insert stories. According to Ashin, for this 3DNA they made other versions of some of their songs to fit the story and feeling that it gives off. The members of Mayday are Ashin, Masha, Monster, Stone and Ming. They also performed many songs from their most recent album.
The concept was really nice in that everyone has their own DNA but that should not define us. We can paint our own dreams and make our own DNA. As always, their music can influence and touch different lives.
