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。
