20140730 Chef Man

Chef man 是讀小學一年級時,因受著「policeman」及「fireman」的影響,而經常串錯的英文字詞。直到前幾天,看了鐵甲奇俠首集的導演 Jon Favreau的小品Chef (中文譯名: 滋味旅程) 的宣傳片,我腦海重新閃出Chef Man這個字詞。

入場看這部電影,如果你不看宣傳片,你大抵是為著鐵甲奇俠 Robert Downey Jr. 同黑寡婦 Scarlett Johansson的客串而來。但導演 Jon Favreau 今集才是自導自演的主角,自演,不是嗎? 對呀,如果你有看過鐵甲奇俠3,你也許會記得那個名叫Happy的保鑣,生動鬼馬搞笑與可愛,其實就是導演 Jon Favreau。

中文譯名為滋味旅程,改得非常好,懷疑是做購名語片的好友Derek 親自執筆改的,水準甚高。這趟旅程是講述星級餐廳大廚Carl Casper (Jon Favreau 飾演),廚藝雖然備受賞識,卻因為應老細的要求,日日照辦煮碗做出餐廳的名菜,加上自己的創意卻遭餐廳老闆盲目扼殺,更在社交網絡上得罪了出名的食評家,令自己失去飯碗。而這位落難大廚遇上分岔口,在迷失的途上終於頓悟人生道理,決定重新上路,重拾生活的滋味,做回一個「man」的Chef,卻教人為生命流兩滴眼淚。 6 more words
