[經典重溫]波蘭斯基首部作品《水中刀》

《水中刀》(Knife in the Water)

文:歌德古堡

早前竟然有《水中刀》重映,是導演波蘭斯基(Roman Polanski) 唯一出產於家鄉波蘭但比較少人提及的作品。

於1962年出品的《水中刀》(Knife in the Water)是波蘭斯基首部電影。故事簡單非常,夫婦二人與一名大學生身處在遊艇上發生微妙的事,就如波蘭斯基的怪異風格,兩男一女同在遊艇狹窄的空間,半日時間,三人之間誘發妒忌、情慾和張力,那怕一句無心說話,一個無意的碰撞,會觸發不能預計的後果。波蘭斯基營造氣氛固然有一手,一收一放,一緊一鬆,控制著觀眾的呼吸心跳。其實三位演員除了扮演丈夫的Leon Niemczyk是正式的演員外,飾演妻子的Jolanta Umecka和大學生Zygmunt Malanowicz原來從沒演過戲,而在波蘭斯基的指導下發揮得非常自然。

再重看,就留意到波蘭斯基後來喜用的情慾偷窺角度鏡頭,原來在《水中刀》已用得蠻熟練了,在後來的《怪房客》大派用場,就變成了鬼異的佈景。還有船上三人的構圖,已是故事的一部份了。

電影前半的暗湧就因一把小刀一下子轉化成張力的高潮,由Krzysztof Komeda和Bernt Rosengren主理的爵士配樂十分出色為二男之間火上加油。其實波蘭斯基的《水中刀》已甚有大師風範,當年亦為導演在國際電影界打響名堂。

Hacksaw Ridge - Trailer

I love a good war flick, though preferably of the more–relatively speaking–modern variety, where the people doing the fighting believe that what they’re doing is for all the right reasons, till they often come to see whichever conflict they happen to be engaging in a context larger than themselves. 159 more words
