「ラスト、コーション(色、戒)」が金獅子賞(作品賞)に選ばれた監督、アン・リー=9月8日、AP





During Chang Hsüeh-ch'eng's time, it was fashionable for men of letters to encourage women to write poetry and to help them have their works published. Chang called these men "shameless hypocrites" and their protégées "women of activity," and he characterized their venture as a grand delusion, men deluding women and women deluding themselves. The men were hypocrites, he wrote, because they disguised lust as appreciation. "The intentions are unspeakable. Alas! They think that they are praising a woman for her talent when the rest of the world knows that it's sympathy born out of lust." The women they spur on are "busy scribbling away even though what they say has no range, no more than a woman's 'private sorrows in spring and fall' and the sentiments of 'flowers flourish and fade.'" The women Chang Hsüeh-ch'eng respected were the "quiet women," women who knew when to desist.
在章學誠那時代,男性文人鼓勵婦女吟詩作賦、幫她們刊行作品,蔚然成風。章學誠稱這些男人為「無恥妄人」,說他們的女弟子「何其動耶」,並稱女性進軍文壇是受到蠱惑的結果-男人欺騙女人,而女人又欺騙自己。他在文中稱這些男人為偽君子,看似愛才,其實暗藏色心:「彼假借以品題,不過憐其色也。無行文人,其心不可問也。嗚呼!」為他們所鼓動的女子則汲汲於「踰閒盪檢」,所寫雖不外乎「春閨秋怨,花草榮凋」,仍然樂此不疲。章學誠敬重的女人清一色都是「靜女」,是知所當止的女人。

李安凭《色·戒》一片再度降服威尼斯电影节金狮,但坊间传出微词称评委主席张艺谋暗中鼎力偏袒,是中国人给中国人发奖。德国影评人不以为然。

今年,李安凭《色·戒》一片荣获金狮, 这是华人接连3年获得威尼斯电影节的最高奖。不过,坊间传出微词,称李安获奖有张艺谋作为评委主席在其中鼎力相助,是中国人给中国人发奖。14年前,李安 的《喜宴》一片在柏林获得金熊奖,当年张艺谋也是评委之一。如今,李安获奖后在媒体面前拍着张艺谋的肩,笑称:还是他多当评委的好。这一说法对某些影评人 来说是正中下怀。
那么,张艺谋到底在《色·戒》获奖上起了多大的作用?威尼斯电影节的评审机制又是怎么回事?德国之声中文网采访了德国资深影评人丹尼尔-克腾殊特。
《色·戒》不是本届电影节上最独特的影片,但它是最优秀的
Bildunterschrift:
德国之声: 李安的电影《色·戒》得奖的消息宣布后,记者群中掌声和嘘声各半,意大利的报纸评说这是中国人给中国人自己发奖呢,你怎么看?
丹:张艺谋的风格和李安完全是两种风格的导演, 如果说张艺谋给姜文发奖,那还算有照顾同胞的嫌疑。何况台湾电影和中国大陆电影完全走的是两条路,李安出生于台湾,在美国受的教育,走的路子完全是另一回 事。张艺谋这几年走了保守的路线,这些年拍的片子都能顺利通过检查,这倒是令人惊讶的,《色·戒》得奖也令人惊奇。但他们是两回事。
德国之声:张艺谋作为评委主席权限有多大?威尼斯电影节的评审机制是怎样的?
丹:威尼斯电影节的评委除了主席以外,还有6 人。它和戛纳电影节不同的是,戛纳电影节由评委主席来邀请其他评委,而威尼斯电影节的其他评委也是电影节组织者邀请的,跟张艺谋没多大关系。这次威尼斯电 影节的评委都是导演,这种圈里人自己评审的做法还是受到好评。不过威尼斯电影节的评委主席手上有2张选票,其他评委是一人一票。但是,评审以后宣布的结果 据说是评委一致投票决定的,不见得张艺谋在其中起怎样翻云覆雨的作用。
我看这是意大利式的嫉妒,意大利电影全军覆没。还有其他人嘛,看李安连连得奖,实在有些不顺眼。简单地把张艺谋李安都放在一个亚洲文化圈的抽屉里说事,是错误的。
李安的这部电影是人类共通的,它是经典的电影叙事之作,没有什么国界之分。
德国之声:那为何这部电影在影评人中如此受到争议呢?
丹:这部电影前一个小时都是对白,在电影节上首映时,让不懂中文的观众看字幕实在是很累。他们也不容易理解。
德国之声:德文媒体上的争议之处是说《色·戒》几近走入色情电影的边界线了。
丹:色情并不是骂人的话呀!(笑)我在写评论的 时候已经说了,李安的这部电影并非是最独特的,但它是本届电影节最好的电影。不错,电影的下半段有非常精确的性爱场面,但是它不是简单刺激观众的性欲,这 是和黄色电影最根本的区别。一个原本要刺杀汉奸的女孩在性交易下爱上了对方,这其中的挣扎背后是欲望-爱情-权力-政治的一场象征意义交锋。
情欲在此是隐喻的平台。
德国之声:评论界没看懂这部电影?
丹:关键是他们想没想去看懂它。而且,确实是这次电影节没有更好的电影了,《色·戒》作为首映片,已经被打了高分,之后的影片没有更能超过它的了,那得大奖也是自然不过的事情了。
德国之声:李安自称在拍摄这部影片时,几乎精神崩溃了。这是他对自己最大的极限挑战,据说和他的中年危机有关,你看这部电影是他的精神治疗品还是困惑的表达?
丹:我和梁家辉谈话中,他说李安非常严格,坚决不妥协。李安拍片时不达到他自己的理想状态决不罢休。我看他是个内敛而内心平和稳固的人,所以看不出他的什么精神危机之处。

Lust for Life
This filmed biography of Vincent Van Gogh was adapted by Norman Corwin from the best-selling novel by Irving Stone, which was in turn inspired by the written correspondence between Van Gogh and his brother Theo. Kirk Douglas plays the tormented genius, whose obsessive devotion to his art engulfs, consumes, and finally destroys him. James Donald costars as Theo Van Gogh, who provides financial and moral support to his brother from the time Vincent leaves his Holland home in 1878 to his death in Auvers in 1890. Anthony Quinn won an Oscar for his eight-minute turn as Van Gogh's fast friend and erstwhile rival Paul Gaugin. Nearly 200 of Van Gogh's original paintings were borrowed from private collections for brief display in the film: some are "recreated" before our eyes, as the artist stands before his easel, spattered with paint and with a look of white-hot intensity burned into his countenance. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
