言叶之庭 言の葉の庭 (2013)

From blog photos

小小地被这部电影打动了,其实故事对现在各种重口味的观众来说很普通,一个师生恋的故事,但这个故事把这段感情刻画得纯真美好,丝毫不粘人间烟火的感觉。

男主角在雨天的小亭子里不经意地邂逅女主角就被吸引,不光是美丽,主要是一丝神秘,喝着啤酒吃着巧克力很怪异的组合。每次雨天两人都不约而同的翘班翘课,来到这个小亭子思考自己的人生,同时气氛显得既温馨又带有一丝小暧昧。渐渐地男主对女主敞开了心扉,谈论起自己想当制鞋匠的理想,女主则是个很好的听众,让男主畅所欲言。接着男主请女主帮忙做鞋,这个场景你可以说它唯美也可以说它色情,男主测量并摸了女主的纤纤细腿。不得不说女性身体的任何部分似乎都和美好和色情密不可分,可能两者本来也就很难界定。其实片子到这里,女主肯定已经喜欢上了男主无误,只是年龄的差距让大家都不敢捅破这层纸。对我来讲故事到这里已是高潮,后面怎么讲都好了。

原作的画面很精致,随意一个暂停都可以做成桌面。音乐也很不错,但我觉得这段配乐和画面更为打动人心,其实我就是先看了这个片段才去看这部电影的。

Movie Review “Dead Poets Society”

I’ve watched the film “Dead Poets Society” last week, and I found it’s really classic. But ironically, I never heard the name of this film until someone recommended another film “The Way Back” (I may talk about that later) which was shot by the same director. This movie do not like the kind of film shot in 1980’s, the scenes remind me of “Scent of a Woman”, have very high qualities. Somehow that’s not the point, the point is the poems in this file attracted me. I don’t have that good command of English, so I can certainly not understand the full spirit of these poems, that’s why I want to take a note here, it will be in handy.

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms, and, if it proved to be mean, why then to get the whole and genuine meanness of it, and publish its meanness to the world; or if it were sublime, to know it by experience, and be able to give a true account of it in my next excursion. For most men, it appears to me, are in a strange uncertainty about it, whether it is of the devil or of God, and have somewhat hastily concluded that it is the chief end of man here to “glorify God and enjoy him forever.”

– Henry David Thoreau:Walden,or Life in the Woods

O CAPTAIN! MY CAPTAIN!

O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done,
The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won,
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring;

But O heart! heart! heart!
O the bleeding drops of red,
Where on the deck my Captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead.

O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
Rise up&emdash;for you the flag is flung&emdash;for you the bugle trills,
For you bouquets and ribbon’d wreaths&emdash;for you the shores a-crowding,
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;
Here Captain! dear father!
The arm beneath your head!
It is some dream that on the deck,
You’ve fallen cold and dead.

My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still,
My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will,
The ship is anchor’d safe and sound, its voyage closed and done,
From fearful trip the victor ship comes in with object won:
Exult O shores, and ring O bells!
But I with mournful tread,
Walk the deck my Captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead.

THE ROAD NOT TAKEN

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler,long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other,as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim;
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that,the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh,I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence;
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,and I—
I took the less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed,
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature’s changing course untrimmed:
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st,
Nor shall death brag thou wand’rest in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st,
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

– William Shakespeare

She Walks In Beauty
She walks in beauty,like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellow’d to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more,one ray the less,
Had half impair’d the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o’er he face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure,how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek,and o’er that brow,
So soft,so calm,yet eloquent,
The smiles thatv win,the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!

– George Gorden Byron

Last but not least, in the end of the film, when the students stand upon the desk, when the words “Oh, captain. My captain.” spit out their mouth. I was totally moved and I yelled in my heart, “Fuck the regulations!

电影《岁月神偷》

在Google Reader上看到的介绍,想来也好久没有看电影了,就看了一下。确实是部不错的电影,也不知道是不是我太多愁善感了,又被感动得一塌糊涂。

故事讲的是老香港的故事,一家四口小平民的生活,爸爸、妈妈、哥哥、弟弟艰难生活的故事,主线是什么我也说不清,反正穿插了很多故事。弟弟在哥哥的羽翼下长大,很有些无忧无虑,和哥哥嘻笑打闹的日子很开心、很快乐。哥哥是个穷小子,但品学兼优,很爱护弟弟,还赢得了富家小姐的心,但最后身患绝症离开人间。父母对两个孩子期望甚高,爸爸很是严厉,但大儿子得病后却射尽一切地全身心照顾。

不得不承认剧情还是有些老套,但在音乐的烘托下却显得非常唯美。片子中有两段给我留下深刻印象的印象:

  1. 爸爸为了给儿子治病,变卖了戒指,凑足了钱给儿子输血。在医院付钱时,妈妈看到了爸爸无名指上被戒指勒出的深深印痕,一时间感慨万分。两只手不禁紧紧地握在了一起,妈妈的手就搭在爸爸无名指那深深的印痕上。那一瞬间,我承认我湿了。想到了很多,一方面父母间的爱情还是要比我们年轻一代要忠贞得多,尽管争执不断,但始终不离不弃,我们这一代就没啥好说的了,这是个道德沦丧的时代;另一方面,父母对子女深深的爱,是哪个时代都不会改变的,为了子女无论什么都是可以牺牲的。而我们做子女的为父母做过些啥?除了捣蛋、添乱、惹他们生气外,真没做过啥像样了。父母生日或者父亲节母亲节我们会给父母送礼物?我觉得那都是噱头,都是形式,对父母的爱应该是点滴的,平时时时刻刻的,节日送礼什么的我现在渐渐觉得挺有些作秀的感觉,骗骗自己,自认为很孝顺父母而已。
  2. 哥哥死后,弟弟记起奶奶曾经说过的话:“你只要放进你所有最心爱的东西,把它全都扔进苦海里,把苦海填满就可以和你的亲人重逢了。”弟弟遵照着嘱咐,把偷来的月光杯、寺庙里的孙悟空、米字旗带在包里,来到海边,一一检视后决然地扔进大海。到这里我又湿了。但弟弟在扔完了包里所有的东西后,取下了从片头开始他就一直带在头上的玻璃缸,透过玻璃缸,世界变得那么的神奇有趣,他犹豫再三后也将它扔入大海。至此我已成泪人。对亲人的思念大概是人最深的感情了吧,它时而温馨时而痛苦。你之所以痛苦就是因为当初爱得太深,你想重新见到亲人那是一股多么不可抑制地冲动。你可以放弃一切,但即使如此你还是得不到已失去的亲人。弟弟的奶奶也许是想宽慰弟弟吧,告诉了他一个不切实际的见到亲人的办法,有时候人就是这样,有了希望,无论它是多么的渺茫也总比毫无希望要来的强。苦海是那么大,即使你放弃了所有心爱的东西有如何能添得满,但希望却永远在那里,我们有一个宽恕自己的理由:是我不对,我一定是放弃得太少,没有把那苦海填满。

“在幻变的生命里,岁月,原是最大的小偷。” ——《岁月神偷》

这句话太值得深深玩味了。

p.s: 题外话,片子里那个富家女也很灵的。我不觉得她长得很漂亮,但就是那股气质:一袭飘飘的长发、明亮的双眸、白白的肌肤、素雅的服饰、轻轻的语调、温柔的个性把一个女孩子所有的美好都表现出来。这真是女人的杀手锏啊,亘古不变,老少通杀。

电影《变相黑侠》

昨天去看了电影《变相黑侠》,主要是因为当时没啥可看的,电影院里仅有的几部片子也就只有这部还有些噱头,因为有金城武。

故事情节实在是太老套了,据说是根据书改编的,这书我怀疑是90年代初的吧?可是好像日本人还很好这口,算是个家喻户晓的故事。金城武饰演的是一个马戏团的落魄戏子远藤平吉,生活不惊不咋,突然因为有人出钱请他当狗仔。而实则是为人利用当了替身,被误认为当时赫赫有名的k-20变相怪侠。从此生活巨变,被迫堕落为盗。在贼窝里苦苦修炼本领,以其最终洗脱嫌疑。而真正的变相怪盗其实一直在他身边。

故事里很多东西都太脱离现实了,贫民窟里尽是善良可爱的孩子,盗贼窝里也充满了温馨、鼓励和仁爱。当然这样的现象是可能发生,不过大部分只是人的臆想罢了,堕落到这个地步,生计都成问题,哪里还能尽显善良?偷摸拐骗,为了生存无可厚非,但也绝不是啥美好的事。女主角羽柴叶子(松隆子 饰)也是个一厢情愿的完美角色,想自己帮助贫民窟的孩子,实际上这是个社会问题,非一己之力能解决,影片中看似靠个人力量解决了一窝穷孩子,实质上杯水车薪而已。远藤平吉的道具也很理想化,明明只是个能发射的钩子,派派翻墙的用处,电影里确实既能升空又能缓降的,太假了。而片中的终极武器,格拉斯什么的装置,也是个无奈之举吧?非要搞一个能毁天灭地的道具,然后让主角来摧毁。一个字:俗。怎么看这也应该定位于解密侦探类故事,所以至少要真实一点吧。动不动就来个超级武器,我说要不来个奥特曼吧,主角不用出场了。另外变相怪盗先生的面具也是丑了点,既无喜感也缺犀利,这也许不能怪他,因为我在看过《V for Vendetta》之后就没对面具再产生过惊喜。

接上面说的,这部电影在我看来是归侦探类的,所以精彩的地方无疑是在于猜测谁是真正的变相怪盗,而不是金城武作为一个通缉犯,明目张胆在城区里耍帅练跑步,或者松隆子作为一个大家闺秀,一会神经兮兮地搞移情别恋一会性情大变玩开飞机。看的时候我也在做推理,首先有设备能解密藏有格拉斯武器所在地画卷,那么无论如何谁试图接近这个设备,那都是有嫌疑的。这样算来远藤平吉的盗贼师傅,侦探明智小五郎(女主角的未婚夫),明智小五郎的小跟班都有重大嫌疑。而随后明智小五郎中弹身亡,我便排除了他的嫌疑,剩下的两个我更倾向于明智小五郎的小跟班,一切也挺合情合理的,虽然是小角色,但可以隐藏得也很好,而关键节点也处处有他。但最后却是明智小五郎在装死,他就是真的变相怪盗。我昏,这玄机是怎么设的?回忆的时候主角说出了破绽所在,因为明智小五郎乔装成变相怪盗去质问女主角时摸了一下她的腰,而女主角觉得这手很熟悉。这。。这。。这也算细节啊?好没有意思啊,悬念在哪里?推理在哪里?这种细节也算可不算,你说女主角被摸了有感觉也完全可以说他毫无知觉,反正您编剧说了算嘛,那你早点告诉我这是部娱乐片就好了,我还好动了些脑细胞,挺累的说。

如果不是闲得蛋疼,病得寂寞,严重不推荐这部电影,没啥温馨的场面供男女嬉戏调情,没啥严谨的推理供男士娓娓道来,没啥惊险的画面供女生纵怀入抱。如果你只是为了看金帅哥,那当我没说。

唉,惜哉,金城武,接拍烂片真离谱,不如回家卖红薯。

电影《风声》

今天和同学去大上海影城看了电影《风声》。现在的票价真是辣手啊,周末半价都要50元,这兜里还真要给掏空了。。。不过表扬一下,服务还是有亮点的:虽然不许外带冷饮,但提供冰柜寄存。

这部片子还是有些悬念的,但拍得和柯南一样。。。一帮子人被关到个前不着村、后不着店的空堡里,然后开始推理谁是杀手。。哦,错了,谁是卧底。答案的范围很明显,演的几个人里是牌大、谁戏份足,谁是卧底的可能性就大。不过我觉得自己是个疑心重且思维比较紊乱的人,我对几个主演都不感冒,横看竖看就是觉得那几个配角像卧底。真的卧底嘛,就是要装得跟个路人似的。电影的巧妙之处在于关在一起的五人中有两个卧底,于是可以通过相互揭发的手段保证其中一个存活下来,这就和我们玩的杀人游戏有些像。不过万一抓进去的是一个人那不就玩完了,所以卧底做事不能只凭运气,学会如何栽赃也很重要。电影中还有个细节,敌方卖了个破绽,让怀疑对象们和一个已知的我方人员A见面,借机观察怀疑对象的表情。我们的两位卧底都正眼不瞧一下A,于是地方分析卧底就藏在两人之中。看,这就又业余了吧?好在敌人也笨,没想到两个居然都是卧底。。。另外片中的针灸酷刑也确实很吓人,光看着就隐隐觉得刺在自己身上的那种剧痛感,还真的只有钢铁战士才忍的了吧?所以说当叛徒,我们心里确实不能接受,但实在是应该理解的。

周迅演的嘛还是老问题,形象佳,演技庸,声音差,但生来就是这样的声线倒也不是她的错,可惜了这张脸;相比之下李冰冰就正常的多。可很奇怪为什么一直都是周迅的牌大呢?应该李冰冰长得更好一点才对啊,我的审美听挺正常啊。

好了,收工。好像说的很乱,随意了。最后补充一点建议和忠告:片子是好片子,不过鉴于内容,不适合情侣观看。

哈里波特与混血王子

前两天去看过了,一直忘了写。其实也并非忘了写那么简单,更重要的是根本没啥好写的。这个电影拍的太不知所云了,我本着惠及大众的心态,非常诚恳地告诉大家,如果你没看过这个电影就不用浪费时间了,如果你实在闲的蛋疼,那就在网上看看就好了,实在不值得去电影院。而且不知道为什么,中文版的场次远远高于原版的场次,其实我觉得大家应该更爱看原版才对,现在看电影的都是年轻人,爱显摆且又有小资情调,影院就不懂得迎合一下大众口味吗?

一个片子看下来唯一有些悬念的就是:混血王子是谁?我一直到最后才猛然猜出。

变形金刚2

今天看了变形金刚2,进去居然真没几个空位,实在没想到人会多到如此火爆的地步。变形金刚看来是个注定要拼命掏空我们这一代人口袋的电影,它勾起的是太多美好的回忆。

说实话,电影拍什么我不是很关注,光是汽车人吱吱的变形声就足以让我高潮迭起了,我只要看他们在变形,在火拼就够了。虽然看了不少变形,但里面的大力神变形还是让我感觉很high,变了好长时间,好大好牛X;然后就是擎天柱最后和天火的对接,基本是就是擎天柱又穿了身盔甲也好帅,而且实力猛增。立马把一个个霸天虎tore apart,那种金属的撕裂感很暴力很血腥,但确实很迎合观众的心理,至少我非常非常喜欢这个场面。

Ok, let’s say something about the chief actress, she is very hot, and the director  must has completely understood the scripts what Joey and Chandler(roles in American soap play — Friends) said when they saw the bikini girls running on the beach : Run, run, the girls should keep running.

The scripts were something like that, I don’t remember them exactly, but you know what I’m talking about, don’t you? lol

总结一下:这部电影还是值得一看的,可以让你追忆一下童年,不必苛求剧情,有时候我们需要的只是一点简单的感官刺激而已。
