Abstract: Bengawan Solo which is the ending song of The film Wild Goose Lake creates an absurd and pure
emotional utopia and also constructed a superego existence world of a character of Zhou Zenong. This song
sublimates a sad story about nobody into a meaningful social emotional structure and creates communication
between antagonistic spaces such as Above/below ground and edge/center. This song also shows the way
of the marginal groups in society in China fighting against their fate and this way has a special aesthetic
significance.
