酷兒少年與殘缺母愛:《聽媽媽的話》、《親愛媽咪》的愛無能與愛無盡

札維耶.多藍(Xavier Dolan)鍾情楚浮(François Truffaut,又譯杜魯福),多次在訪問中申明看過的電影不多,拒絕被歸入哪個門派或與哪位大師的名字連在一起,卻唯獨承認自己「比較像楚浮」,還大膽說想不出二十部偉大的高達(Jean-Luc Godard),但想得出超過二十部偉大的楚浮(楚浮導演生涯的長短作品總數也就二十幾部)。[1] 在楚浮的二十多部作品裡,多藍又最鍾情《四百撃》(The 400 Blows)。除了將之比作自己的童年、首次愛與被愛的經驗,並說自己因此走上導演之路,[2] 多藍已先後有兩部直接指涉(或重寫)《四百撃》的作品,分別是其導演處女作《聽媽媽的話》(I Killed My Mother,港譯:《殺死我阿媽》)和在2014坎城(康城)影展上與高達《告別語言》(Goodbye to Language)並列評審團獎的《親愛媽咪》(Mommy,港譯:《慈母多惡兒》)。《聽媽媽的話》和《親愛媽咪》對《四百撃》之經典元素的借用──例如男童、母親、體制──並非單純重複,更是重新演繹,乃至注入新意。如此一來,多藍不只是拍出了「多藍版本的《四百撃》」,「多藍版本的《四百撃》」無疑也為解讀經典提供了來自新時代的新視角。本文從《聽媽媽的話》和《親愛媽咪》所組成的「多藍版本」中挑出兩點較明顯的重寫──頑童形象與母子關係──一窺這個來自天才(genius)、神童(prodigy)、頑童(enfant terrible)[3] 及酷兒(queer)的新視角。 225 more words

Growing up is still difficult – another take on François Truffaut’s The 400 Blows

Earlier this week a friend reminded me of the existence of this photograph.

It’s a great photo. Jean-Pierre Léaud, standing before a painting of a younger version of himself playing a younger version of the director of the film that gave him his career. 954 more words

Classic Encounters

A Series of Painful Memories

The Mischief Makers (François Truffaut, 1956). This short film demonstrates already some examples for Truffaut’s “trademark tracking shots” and would “help define his style” as well as “set Truffaut on a path for his career”. 721 more words
