Gossip

doubt-movie-1

说到2009奥斯卡,很多人都会想到Slumdog Millionaire。其实,你知道吗?这一届奥斯卡还有一部很不错的最佳影片提名电影 — 《Doubt》。故事背景是发生在60年代的纽约。整套戏围绕着教会学校校长老修女Sister Aloysius和神父Father Brendan Flynn。校长怀疑神父猥亵教会的学生。面对校长豪无根据的指控,神父及力为自己辨护。单看Meryl Streep这位老戏骨,再加上影帝Philip Seymour Hoffman的演出,这部戏包你看了不会失望。

戏里有好几个片段非常发人深省。其中一段说到神父在一场布道(sermon)上,非常技巧的利用小故事来反击诋毁自己声誉的校长和年轻修女。他说:

A woman was gossiping with her friend about a man whom they hardly knew – I know none of you have ever done this.

That night, she had a dream: A great hand appeared over her and pointed down on her. She was immediately seized with an overwhelming sense of guilt.

The next day she went to confession. She got the old parish priest, Father O’Rourke, and she told him the whole thing.

‘Is gossiping a sin?’ she asked the old man. ‘Was that God All Mighty’s hand pointing down at me? Should I ask for your absolution? Father, have I done something wrong?’

‘Yes,’ Father O’Rourke answered her. ‘Yes, you ignorant, badly-brought-up female. You have blamed false witness on your neighbor. You played fast and loose with his reputation, and you should be heartily ashamed.’

So, the woman said she was sorry, and asked for forgiveness.

‘Not so fast,’ says O’Rourke. ‘I want you to go home, take a pillow upon your roof, cut it open with a knife, and return here to me.’

So, the woman went home, took a pillow off her bed, a knife from the drawer, went up the fire escape to her roof, and stabbed the pillow. Then she went back to the old parish priest as instructed.

‘Did you cut the pillow with a knife?’ he says.

‘Yes, Father.’

‘And what were the result?’

‘Feathers,’ she said.

‘Feathers?’ he repeated.

‘Feathers everywhere, Father.’

‘Now I want you to go back and gather up every last feather that flew out onto the wind,’

‘Well,’ she said, ‘it can’t be done. I don’t know where they went. The wind took them all over.’

‘And that,’ said Father O’Rourke, ‘is GOSSIP!’

怎么样?爱八卦散播遥言的人肯定有所感想,不是吗?

《Slumdog Millionaire》Oscars2009 大赢家

果然《Slumdog Millionaire》真的获得了Oscars 2009最佳影片奖!恭喜恭喜! 🙂

然而,当许多印度人沉浸在得奖喜悦中的当儿,可有多少人会想到,在MumbaiDharavi贫民区(影片主要拍摄地),那里的居民真正需要的究竟又是什么呢?我想这才是大家应该关心的,不是吗

不懂为什么,就是特别喜欢这位小演员

不一样的印度电影

托老公的福,我有幸看到一部很不一样的印度电影 – Slumdog Millionaire

这不是一般的Bollywood电影。Slumdog Millionaire是由英国导演Danny Boyle执导,改编自印度作家Vikas Swarup的作品《Q&A》。演员有Dev PatelFreida PintoAnil KapoorIrrfan Khan,等等。故事叙述一名来自Mumbai贫民窟的18岁青年,在他参与《百万富翁》遊戏问题节目时,一切都非常顺利,他答对了每一个难题。这反而让节目主持人及警方怀疑他作弊。一个来自贫民窟的孩子,怎么可能有这么多的智识呢?在被警方拷问下,他只好道出一段段与题目相关的往事...

戏中给我印象最深刻的,要算是那两位饰演男主角与他兄长儿童时期的童星。他们样子可爱,演戏逼真。真叫人从心底里去疼惜他们

这真是一部不容错过的电影,真的是很不一样!值得推荐
