「我離港前到過一間精神科醫院。當時有位病人禮貌地問,一個以作為世上最悠久民主政體而自傲的國家,如何能夠將此地交給一個政治制度非常不同的國家,且既沒諮詢當地公民,又沒給予他們民主的前景,好讓他們捍衞自己的將來。一個隨行同事說,奇怪,香港提出最理智問題的人,竟在精神科醫院。」彭定康 金融時報

“During a visit to a mental hospital before I left Hong Kong, a patient politely asked me how a country that prided itself on being the oldest democracy in the world had come to be handing over his city to another country with a very different system of government, without either consulting the citizens or giving them the prospect of democracy to safeguard their future. Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

Jodie Foster's "Contact" (1997 )

Jodie Foster's "Contact" (1997 )

一向對Jodie Foster 有信心﹐她的電影應全都有看過﹐有些還收藏了影碟。我第一部JODIE 的電影應該是NELL﹐她演一個不屬於現代的人﹐隱居於深山處﹐說話因養大她的老人家是中了風的﹐學得怪異語音﹐令人難以理解。 嘻嘻, 以後有機會再談。

今天談的是 1997 年的“CONTACT” ﹐ 而中文戲名我忘記了﹐ 在網上找到叫 <接觸未來> 。昨晚子夜二時之後﹐在床上眼光光﹐遂爬起身隨便拿了隻影碟看。怎知一看仲精神oD﹐因為故事吸引﹐又有JODIE FOSTER

Ellie Arroway (Jodie Foster) grows up fascinated with radio messages from distant places. Ellie's father dies when she is 9. As an adult Arroway becomes deeply involved in SETI - the Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence. Arroway works first at the Arecibo radio telescope, and then at the VLA in New Mexico. Just as the government is on the point of closing down the program, they receive a message from Vega. The military rapidly take over the project.

When they decode the message from space, it contains instructions how to build some kind of space craft or star gate. Only one person can travel in this machine, and Ellie is desperate to be that one - but she is rejected.

The first machine is sabotaged by a religious fanatic, and blown up - but there is another, built in secret on an island off the coast of Japan. This time, Ellie gets to go.

In a flight lasting 18 hours, she goes through a series of wormholes to a mystical encounter with a being in the form of her father. The being tells her that there are many intelligent races in the Universe.

But when she gets back, her 'flight' has only taken a fraction of a second in earth time. There is no evidence for what she has seen, and the data recorder that went with her has recorded only static. No-one believes she has really gone anywhere.

當全世界上大多數的人﹐ 都唔信你﹐以為你在說謊﹐ 怎樣面對呢? 因為還是要生活下去哩﹐懂得面對逆境﹐活出新生活﹐就是結尾想帶出的信息。

重溫 Contact 略有所思

原來是同道,我也很喜歡Jodie Foster。覺得她是一個充滿力量的演員,身形雖然嬌小,卻非常壓台,再加上偶爾閃過一抹憂鬱的眼神,很懾人心神。

Wish that I could really click fast forward. Thanks!!

Taxi Driver 可算是 Jodie 一鳴驚人之作,當時的她好像大概只有十二歲(不知道有否記錯);再加上 De Niro 的演技,喜歡看電影的,應該去找來看的。
