都市陌生人
台灣新電影時期選映

Urban strangers
New Taiwanese Cinema Selection

台灣新電影運動出現在一個躁動不安的時代,在如此一個艱難時代,能創作出傳世經典,與其於題材和拍攝上的開創性有密切關係。今次挑選來自楊德昌,侯孝賢和萬仁的三部作品,其共通點是大城市裡的「陌生人」。三部電影、三種況味、多少個不同的命運交纏。

The New Taiwanese Cinema Movement emerged in a restless era. The films, which were made in such a difficult time, have become all-time classics, because it is closely related to the ground-breaking themes and innovative shooting methods. This time, we select three films from Edward Yang, Hou Hsiao-hsien and Wan Jen respectively with ‘strangers’ in the city as the commonality. Three films, three situations, numerous different fates are intertwined.

確立侯氏風格的奠基作,靜態的長鏡頭內透視人文養份,抽離的中遠鏡裏揮發城鄉哀愁,正好切合台灣新電影的寫實方向。幾個年青人從澎湖走到高雄尋找更好的生活,直面種種城鄉矛盾,只為趕上時代的步伐,追逐之間帶出成長主題,卻不附注腳,就像主角阿清在故鄉的大海旁或城中的人海裏,或奮進或茫然,充滿現實況味。侯導以輕省又幽默的敍事刻劃青澀和胡鬧,令人莞爾,楊德昌重新配上悠揚的古典小提琴協奏曲,為電影年輕的浮躁和失落,還有城鄉的失調,譜上另一重錯置感。
The Boys from Fengkuei established Hou’s style. The humanities appear in the single camera and the sorrow reflects in the medium long shots are realistically portrayed just as the Taiwan New Wave Cinema. A group of laddish adolescents moves from Penghu to Kaohsiung for a better life and confront the urban-rural differences to catch up with a new age. Growing up, the main character A-ching is no longer a teen standing by the sea in his village but a man being swamped by the crowds in the city. Hou narrates youth in a light-hearted and humorous way that puts a smile on your face. Edward Yang’s selection of mellifluous classical violin concerto as background music juxtaposes the restlessness of the youth and the city-country alienation.
