HKIFF電影節#3 - 悍女 (Brimstone)

Day 43 – Brimstone, 2016 (Martin Koolhoven)

HKIFF電影節#3

Cast: Dakota Fanning, Guy Pearce, Kit Harington, Emilia Jones, Carice van Houten

荷蘭導演Martin Koolhoven首部英語作品<Brimstone>(悍女),國際化的幕前,包括美國女星Dakota Fanning,英國的Guy Pearce,Kit Harington和童星Emilia Jones及荷蘭演員Carice van Houten,不過不論是電影手法氣圍和班底還是相當的荷蘭味噥,設定為西部片於東歐和德國取景。港譯悍女是有點誤導,劇本結構分明的分四章,先以主人翁被新來的牧師追殺(準確是punishment),再倒敍由主人翁從小到長大的經歷,視點從一而終都是由女主角出發,觀眾容易感受到她身為女性的壓迫,不停感受到這份所謂由神發出的怒火(Brimstone在聖經裡的象徵).眼見母親如何折服於牧師父親的「教導」,將舊約當成聖典,母親折服但她不會折服,寧願流落煙花之地,這何嘗又不是另類反抗?不敢說<Brimstone.是一部真心的女權主義電影,但storytelling的確平穩而且美術有其粗糙之美感,唯一不足是結尾有點畫蛇添足。

Le prédateur et la proie

Un western ! Oui mais made in Europe, cela fait bien longtemps que nous n’en avions pas vu. Seuls les États-Unis en produisent d’habitude. Soit avec de grands budgets confortables façon blockbuster, soit de manière indépendante avec un petit budget. 988 more words
