The Pianist

Ταινίες βλέπουμε για να μπούμε σε έναν κόσμο που ποτέ δε θα ζήσουμε ή για να ψυχογραφούμε χαρακτήρες; Γιατί μπορούμε να τρυπώσουμε σε κόσμους ανθρώπων ή γιατί μπορούμε να αλλάξουμε την οπτική μας απέναντι στη ζωή;

Movie Review - "The Pianist" (2002)

Making a film about the atrocities of World War II is like walking a tight rope – one false move or overplayed gesture could cause everything to go wrong, but if you play it expertly and with grace then it is a work of art. 549 more words

The Pianist︰戰地奏響人性光輝


每次睇holocaust flim都注定淚水長流,歷史上納粹德軍對猶太人的罪行罄竹難書,The Pianist(港譯︰《鋼琴戰曲》)對暴行的描寫跟The Schindler’s List (港譯︰《舒特拉的名單》)同樣震撼人心。

電影的立意尤其清晰——“where there is darkness, light.” 在黑暗之處總有人性的光輝。故事以二戰時被戰火蹂躪的波蘭華沙為背景,主角是舉國知名的猶太裔鋼琴家。(中略)主人公在瀕死邊緣遇到一名納粹軍官,與他傾談後發現他是鋼琴家,命他演奏一曲,那琴音紛亂而激昂,卻又肝腸寸斷,是經歷戰爭殘酷洗禮的琴手,淬煉自心靈最深處的哀鳴,懾住軍官的心神,使他動憐憫之心,對這個落難的猶太人手下留情,還向他送食物。隨俄軍進駐波蘭,德軍節節敗退,臨行前,軍官回來給主角最後的糧食,還將自己禦寒的大衣送他,主角連忙道謝,德國人說” It is God”(不用謝,是上帝的旨意。)勢不兩立的兩人因為音樂而連繫起來,軍官道別時問了主人公的名字,說遲點會收聽他的演奏。

波蘭斯基對這位落難主人的刻劃是直率的:不事生產、情緒化、貪生怕死、窩囊的藝術家,除了演奏,他甚麼都不會。每次死裡逃生都是死好命,他不是英雄,不像被運到集中營的弟弟(?)一樣憤世嫉俗,他會為求生計族下尊嚴為Ghetto裡的離地中產演奏;也不像labor camp裡的革命份子般大無畏,即使付出也只是以被動的方式(從牆外走私軍火)當他成功逃到ghetto的外面,目睹牆內的人以死相搏反抗納粹然後壯烈犧牲,他不斷哭:「有時我會搞不清楚,我應該是在牆的哪一邊。」然後又反問身邊人,到底牆內的人明知送死,為何還要反抗?身邊人眉頭一皺-“They die with dignity.” 6 more words
