Ingredients: Omelet; Parsnip

This one is interesting to decipher. A parsnip omelet? Or an omelet with parsnips on the side? It might be good either way, although I would probably want something else involved—cheese at the very least.

Marnie:綁架一名美女賊

希治閣大師的《豔賊》(Marnie),我個人看上去不認為是大師手下最令人回味的作品。

Marnie是一名慣性盜竊犯,每去到一個新的城市,就潛入一間公司當員工後再盜去資本。怎料一次轉工中,該公司的投資者Mark認得Marnie在上一間公司的盜竊犯,但被Marnie的美豔外型和神秘感所吸引,而聘用了她。

Marnie 在Mark公司開夾萬盜去1萬元現金一幕十分精彩。完完全全靜默的一幕wide shot,看Marnie在左邊螢幕一邊偷錢,清潔嬸嬸右邊一邊向鏡頭走過來,緊張感爆燈。之後Marnie 藏在外套袋子中的高跟鞋掉到地上澎的一聲,打破了靜默,可謂全套戲最緊張的一幕吧。

Marnie當下逃過的,但Mark 追蹤到盜去公司一萬元美金的Marnie,以此威脅要與Marnie結婚,換來為她擺平入獄的訴訟。Marnie哀求Mark讓自己離開,但男方不為所動。Mark碰Marnie的時侯,Marnie更寧願自殺。

Marnie 極度嫌惡被男人觸碰,也害怕所有紅色的顔色和打雷。Mark調查Marnie的家庭背景後,帶Marnie回去媽媽的家,讓她首次回憶起童年時,媽媽是一名妓女,一個打雷的晚上,媽媽的客人想侵犯Marnie,媽媽嘗試阻止男性反被箝制。Marnie為了救媽媽用鐵棒錯手打死男人。當Marnie 回想起童年的陰影後,好像就從中康復了,也願意接受Mark的付出。

《豔賊》有別於一般的警匪片類的東西。它以一個美女賊故事開首,但爾虞我詐的橋段非常少,相信一看開始也很難想像到結局。它反而像一套有關愛情的戲劇,相當不真實的愛情劇。

很難明Mark為甚麼會如此深愛Marnie,要為她賠上所有一切。美女賊Marnie由聰明女性,變成被一個富有男子以婚假為名綁架的對象,Marnie沒有權又有錢,只能被擺佈。這本來是一個可以大力發展的橋段。既是承繼母親無能為力的形象,也是對女性地位的反思,但導演並沒有這樣做,以Mark的大愛解決了一切問題。

回憶起兒時陰影就如此容易被治療?也會愛上一個綁架自己的男人?電影有很多不太具說服力的橋段,沒說服力地完結了。
