感性。愛國。孤寂—《齊瓦哥醫生》(Doctor Zhivago)


剛巧今年在香港國際電影節重映大衛連 (David Lean) 代表作《齊瓦哥醫生》(Doctor Zhivago),讓我能在大銀幕欣賞到這部史詩式愛情大作。

剪片師出身的大衛連,以Noel Coward的劇作改編電影打響名堂,亦先後執導過數個迪狄斯的作品,如《苦海孤雛》和《遠大前程》,開始了與演員Alec Guinness為期二十多年的合作,這時大衛連在英國電影工業已站穩陣腳。進入五十年代的大衛連的製作規模越來越大,1957年的《桂河橋》打入美國市場,在國際亦大獲好評。

1962年《沙漠梟雄》把大衛連推到高峰,也發掘了莎劇出身的Peter O’Toole和埃及演員Omar Sharif。1965年推出《齊瓦哥醫生》,飾演主角齊瓦哥的Omar Sharif和女主角Lara的Julie Christie才剛剛成名,據說原本Omar Sharif是想扮演Lara丈夫Pasha Antipov的角色,與Julie Christie一起試鏡的Michael Caine向大衛連提議由Omar Sharif做主角。而Julie Christie則是因為前作《Billy Liar》的演出得到Lara角色,取代由製片人Carlo Ponti的妻子Sophia Loren。 46 more words

Doctor Zhivago is a strange film. It’s undeniably, inevitably, expensively and melodramatically an important British “picture”. But is it really a masterpiece?

I was lucky enough to trudge through the horizontal London rain to see the new restoration of David Lean’s 200-minute epic last week (still, that’s nothing compared to the bum-numbing… 570 more words
