The 41st Hong Kong International Film Festival
10-year commemorative retrospective of Edward Yang
牯嶺街少年殺人事件

1991  國語    237 分鐘 中文字幕

演員:張震、楊靜怡、張國柱、金燕玲

楊德昌回溯成長記憶,取材自六十年代哄動一時的少年情殺案,以四小時篇幅,拍成視野恢宏的史詩傑作,重現台灣政治戒嚴與白色恐怖時期的共同焦慮。張震初登銀幕飾演小四,愛躲在片場看拍戲,意外捲入眷村少年幫派衝突,遇見他亟欲保護的小明,想當她一輩子的朋友。只是青春早逝,純真失落,手電筒照不出未來,隨着聯考放榜廣播與貓王的歌,在時代的憂鬱裏一步步走向悲劇結局。獲金馬獎最佳劇情片、南特電影節最佳導演及東京電影節評審團特別獎。全新修復版本再現銀幕,成為影迷翹首盼望的盛事。首場放映後有編劇小野出席,分享與楊德昌創作本片的緣起。

 A Brighter Summer Day

1991     Mandarin     237min

Cast: Chang Chen, Lisa Yang, Chang Guo-Zhu, Elaine Jin

Yang’s monumental film carries a vision and impact unmatched in Chinese language cinema for years. A deliberately forgotten era was painstakingly reconstructed, by music, words, and the subtle rapport of neighborhood characters. Through the eyes of a teenager (Chang Chen) we recover episodic moments of Taiwan’s history, seeing how mounting oppression resulted in murderous consequences. The summer sun is glimmering, but not in people’s hearts. Yang was still longing for that bright(er) summer day, whether or not it would come. Newly restored version.
