今天晚上,我在IMDB上随意浏览的时候,偶然看到一个美国影迷在《色戒》讨论区中写的观后感

读后极为震撼。一个美国人看中国电影,仔细到这种程度,真是令人佩服啊。有这样高水平的影迷,何愁没有高水平的电影啊!

下面,我就把这个署名naun的美国影迷的帖子翻译出来,让大家看看,真正的看电影是怎么看的。

Some of us were here on these IMDb message boards when interest in Brokeback Mountain was at its apex.

这个讨论区中的有些人,在李安的上一部电影《断背山》放映时,就在这里了。

One of the most interesting discussions was about internal symbolic connections in the film, or what some people called "bookends".

那时,最有趣的一个话题是,大家一起讨论《断背山》里有哪些伏笔。

It might be interesting to try and find similar connections in Lust, Caution. Here are some examples:

现在《色戒》放映了,讨论一下它里面的伏笔,应该也会很有趣吧。我先来开个头。

- After his first conversation with Jiazhi, Yee turns back to look at her. At the end of the film, he turns back to look at the bed, now empty.

- 易先生第一次遇见王佳芝,离开时扭过头看了她一眼。在影片的结尾,也是易先生扭过头,不过这次看的是他与王佳芝做爱时的床。床是空的。

- The film opens with a shot of a guard dog. In the middle of the second sex scene, we cut again to a shot of the guard dog. It's a jarring switch, as though to remind us what the circumstances and the stakes are in their affair.

- 电影开始的时候,是一个看门狗的镜头。然后,在两人第二次做爱的时候,镜头突然重新切回到了那条看门狗。这个切换显得非常突兀,好像在提醒我们,这两人的感情是在什么样的情况下发生的,又有什么样的风险。

- The murder scene and the rape scene, both extremely violent and politically fraught, are shot in a very similar way, with the action seen both from indoors and outdoors.

- 电影中的暗杀场面和做爱场面,拍摄手法极为相似。两者都显得非常暴力,充满了政治色彩。室内和室外都能看到发生的事情。

- This one may be a bit more of a stretch: The film hints often at the love affair that might have been between Kuang Yu Min and Wang Jiazhi. In their student days it comes closest to being acknowledged during the tram ride after the triumph with their play. When they meet again three years later, the shot that reintroduces Kuang Yu Min to the story has a tram passing in the background.

- 还有一个地方可能不容易被注意到。影片不断暗示,在旷裕民和王佳芝之间可能存在爱情。在学生时代的一次话剧表演结束后,两人坐同一辆有轨电车回家。正是在这辆有轨电车上,两颗心变得接近了。三年后当他们重逢,旷裕民重新出现在镜头中的时候,背影正是一辆缓缓驶去的有轨电车。

Any other examples?

还能举出例子吗?

下面有人回应道:

When Mr Yi does his very final gesture, sitting on the empty bed, there is suddently a 'Gong' from auto-bell. In BBM, when Jack's father announces that Jack ashes will be put into a family plot, the same 'Gong' is heard. Both cases remaind me the court room where a final verdict is delivered.

易先生最后的镜头,是独自一人坐在空床上,然后自鸣钟突然"铛"地响了一声。在《断背山》中,杰克的父亲宣布,杰克的骨灰将洒在家族墓地中时,也能听到"铛"的一声。它们都让我想起,法庭中最后宣布判决的时候。

另一个影迷补充说:

The first time the group called "Wang Jiazhi," she was called to join "the show," while she played the lead. The second she remmebered their calling "Wang Jiazhi," she was called to joing "the end," while curtain drops.

"王佳芝"这个名字第一次在影片中被喊出来,是学生会的人叫她参加话剧演出,她扮演女主角。第二次"王佳芝"这个名字被喊出来,则是监狱中的狱警,叫她上刑场。

注意这些细节的人也许真的看出了电影的味道。譬如《霸王别姬》的结尾,程蝶衣自刎,段小楼先是喊“蝶衣”,过了一会却有轻声地喊程儿时的小名“小豆子”,这个细节是大有深意的。

完全不明白!有机会去看看!

- After his first conversation with Jiazhi, Yee turns back to look at her. At the end of the film, he turns back to look at the bed, now empty.

- 易先生第一次遇见王佳芝,离开时扭过头看了她一眼。在影片的结尾,也是易先生扭过头,不过这次看的是他与王佳芝做爱时的床。床是空的。

这张床是易先生家王佳芝以前住过的房间里的床,他们幽会都是在外面,没有在这张床上;英文原文也没有提到,所以说“做爱时的床",似乎与翻译“达”的精神有悖。

斗胆对大师吹毛求疵了。

有必要看得那么细么?看电影到底是为了什么?如果他们觉得这样很好玩又能张智慧那就另当别论了。但事实上,加入他们说的那些确实是李安刻意所为,那我只能说,没必要。

为什么给的link都打不开了?
