Dependent Origination

Volver

Posted on: November 23, 2009

周末的晚上在家里看电影。首先要感谢最近工作缓了一下,才能有时间吃完饭看电影。连换了三部才看下去。这个不幸是第二部。属于被换掉的。不过第三部看完,我一个人还是把这个看完了。觉得后一半很好看。如果照后面拍,那我们也不至于把它换掉吗。当然对于我来说,全片看完会意识到其实前面铺陈情节,留了很多伏笔,看到谜底揭晓,才恍然大悟前面是在讲什么。讲故事有很多种,一种是像剥洋葱,丝丝缕缕层层展开;另一种则是陈述事实,草蛇灰线伏笔千里,到最后才connect the dot。Volver就是后面一类。

上个星期去看2012的路上听NPR上面一个访谈Pedro Amodorvar。正好听到他说小的时候看到妈妈向爸爸说谎,lying for the greater good of the family,非常厉害,爸爸从来没有发现过。所以对女人的天生的表演能力非常佩服,后来拍电影经常用到。这个片子里面这样的tribute那是俯首皆是。

至于主题,All men are useless。Period。和Thelma and Louise有异曲同工之妙。嘿嘿,言重且歪了。考虑到电影里面谋杀之多,结束之后居然让人心里充满温馨幸福的感觉,实在难得。

最近在听西班牙语录音带。片中对话简单的,或者复杂的句子中的个别单词都颇听懂了几个。很高兴。
