Day 40 - 美麗佳人歐蘭朶 (Orlando)

Orlando, 1992 (Sally Potter)

<美麗佳人歐蘭朶>改編自英國女性主義作家Virginia Woolf同名小說<奧蘭多>,最近在港有重映,選角Tilda Swinton扮演四百年由男變女的主人翁,一絕,亦想不到任何一位演員比Swinton更適合,她的氣質非常中性,既有女性柔軟又可以有男性的硬朗,是一位非常特別的演員,由伊莉莎伯時代走進現代,遊走各國,唸著莎翁的十四行詩,或是詩人雪來的詩篇,風花雪月,一派浪漫的他,終嘗到愛情的果實。不得不提一定是他一身華麗的服裝,精緻如藝術品,結尾著名英國歌手Jimmy Somerville (Bronski Beat/The Communards)客串天使一角,竟覺反高潮。

Quote Of The Day

At Monk's House …

Virginia, that is, not Thelonious. I’ve showed these photos on the blog before, but seeing Patti Smith’s black and white photographs of Monk’s House at Dulwich Picture Gallery yesterday, along with others – Sylvia Plath’s grave in Heptonstall, for instance – which she took in the course of a literary tour, or tours, of the country, I was prompted to post them again. 50 more words

Speaking of illness

“In telling the stories of illness, we need to tell the stories of the lives within which illness is embedded.” — Andrew Solomon 1

Virginia Woolf on the Full Sound

“I am reading six books at once, the only way of reading; since, as you will agree, one book is only a single unaccompanied note, and to get the full sound, one needs ten others at the same time.”–Virginia Woolf
