七情六慾 之四 : 「色」

色慾,對美色奇物之慾望也。

誰不愛美? 即使師奶如我,對自己的儀容不注重,也喜歡看到世間美景、麗人、及漂亮的物件。

那麼何為美物?我幾乎可以肯定,這是一個非常個人的問題。 我審美的眼光跟你或他或她的會有所不同,對美物、美人、美景的定義當然會不同了,正所謂各花入各眼嘛。

實在,個人認為若大家都能夠接受'各花入各眼',做到自行選擇及判斷所喜愛的美景、麗人及物件,已經是一件漂亮的事情了。今日的現代社會,資訊發達,本來是件令人非常欣喜的事。可惜傳媒的影嚮力已達到空前的力量,即使最有定力的人仕也難免被耳濡目染,不能自己。 傳媒要說一件物件超值、一個人美、一個地方好玩、一套電影好看、一個國家興衰...我們大多都照單全收。對不對頭,美不美,幾乎都有傳媒作主,大衆變成了幸福的小綿羊,還是被寵壞了的敗家兒 ? 嗨,我似乎離題了一點,在此要提到的是,受大衆媒介的影響,娛樂也好時事也好,我們對外界事物的喜好也多少受到影響。

寫到色慾,難以忍手不談一談李安導演的「色.戒」。對了,結果未有到戲院看這套城中的話題電影,要不是最近朋友寄來影碟,還要等到有出租時才可以看呢 :) 也許,正因未能在大銀幕欣賞,減低了對影片的品嘗⻆度,效果有點強差人意,是有點失望的。 關於佈景方面,據說導演為求全神,上海部份的樹是一棵一棵種上去的,等等... 不知缺了點什麼,總覺得看着片中一個大型的佈景廠,尤其上海的幾段街景,非常美,却不真實 ; 片中多段為人樂道的性愛場面,主⻆王佳芝為破身而與同學幹的兩段還算有說服力,可是往後看她與易先生的兩幕後,已再始覺得自己在看三級毛片了。在大燈下,實牙實齒地,連讓觀衆可以想像的空間也霸佔了,個人認為真的沒有這個需要 ; 結局,易先生送鑽戒求愛,女特務突來的決定,只令我想起"女人愛鑽戒",跟本難以相信她已愛上了易先生...幸好飾易先生的梁朝偉是好戲之人,片末一段他在暗燈下獨自掃著女特務坐過的床單,情深中帶有無奈。 除此之外,總覺得整套戲缺少了什麼,雷聲大雨點小,看罷有點失望失落... 直至在陰差陽錯下接連看了 Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck 的 《La Vie des Autres》 (竊聽者) 之後,才想出了頭緒來。

同樣是一部特務片,同樣是關於出賣叛變與愛情的故事,「竊聽者」沒有龐大的人造佈景,却較有說服力,也較有感情,令人細味。 魔頭特務如何成為觀衆同情的普通人,靠故事一步一步的發展,演員對⻆色的塑造... 我猜大概「色.戒」便是缺少了這一點點對⻆色感情的描寫,單靠性愛的場面來解釋,還是不夠說服力的。

最後,倒還真想看看張愛玲的原著,去明白一下王蕙玲如何在藍先生的訪問那里中出了這樣一句 "李安 悠遊自在,創造了小說在文字之外的另一種生命..." 了?

Madame 師奶,

I think a good piece of art, is when it is displaced in front of us, we can interpret it with our own feelings and experiences. The film “Lust caution” is the case.

I feel the sex scene with Tom Wai and Leung was very well done, it was not at all erotic, it shows only pure lust, just like two dogs mating, I believe this is Ong Lee’s intension, after all, it is " Lust" caution.

Then I never thought that the diamond in the film played any part at all! I saw a young and inexperienced Tom Wai, contradicted her mission by falling in love with her enemy, and Mr. Leong, a person who has totally lost his feeling, and in a way he was not living, because he has a heart stone cold. But after falling in love with Wai, he began to show some feelings behind his cold facade, and be alive again.

The problem is that because of her naivety, Wai thought that love could conquer everything, that she herself and her love is too important that could melt Leung’s cold heart, this leaded her to her distructiion. At the end, she was thinking to swallow the suicide pill, but she had chosen not to. Hoping against hope that her lover could spare her.

PS. No Chinese writing pad ☹

梁伯 : you might be right in many ways... You said that those sex scenes are Ang Lee's intention... ; some bloggers' nice reviews remind me that there are actually scenes showing the development of love feeling between the two characters like their conversations, the song at the end... yes. However still, the problem is that i'm not 'touched' by that film for some reasons i don't get yet. Perhaps the role of the young lady doesn't convince me... perhaps its the montage, the story, or ... i really don't know.

Oh well, unfortunately I am only a simple 'C9' , i can only tell you subjectively whether i like or not like a film haha ;D
