「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

今天輪到 City Slickers --1


Directed by:
Ron Underwood

Starring:

Billy Crystal as Mitch Robbins

Daniel Stern as Phil Berquist

Bruno Kirby as Ed Furillo

Jack Palance as Curly Washburn




Three men in their 30s or 40s, each going through his own mid-life crisis, depressed about their job and family. At a party,In a meeting one of the three took out a brochure for a two-week Southwestern cattle drive vacation so they signed up for a break from city life.


The story goes:
Phil is the manager of a grocery store owned by his father-in-law. One of the store's checkout girls reveals her affair with Phil, his wife threatens to divorce him.

Ed newly married to a woman with super model looks and faces the pressure of being a father.

Mitch turns 40 and feels especially depressed about his job and family.


When the three men arrive at the scene of the cattle drive, they soon meet their gruff, intimidating trail boss, Curly. Curly and Mitch eventually bond when they go off to round up strays. Mitch even assists in giving birth to a calf he names "Norman".


Mitch eventually comes to respect Curly, whom he finds to be deeply fascinating and wise. Mitch shares the last thing Curly taught him. It was a profound existentialist lesson what really matters in life is for each of us to find our passion, our "One Thing".


But soon after they return to camp, Curly dies unexpectedly. The cook breaks his leg; the trail boss' thug assistants become drunk and abandon the tour. It is up to the "city slickers" to finish the drive. Mitch finds his "One Thing" as he nearly drowns in a rain-swollen river. He is saved, returns to his family, and embarks on a more meaningful, purposeful life. Mitch, Ed and Phil lead the herd back successfully to the Colorado ranch.


There, The trio's triumphant return is spoiled when the ranch owner announces he is going to sell the herd for a handsome profit for slaughter. Mitch spares Norman from slaughter by purchasing him and bringing the calf home long enough to be placed in a petting zoo.


********************************************************


SO what is the ONE THING in your life, this changes from time to time right ?


AT different time of our life span we hold on the one thing, study, relationship, career, family.


我沒有在戲院看電影版的 City Slickers -1 ﹐ 我是幾年後在電視上重播時看到的。

"One Thing" .........Curly 豎起一只食指 index finger 在說!!! ..........印象深刻 (本來寫了一點有關於自己的經歷﹐但記得mad dog 和 aulina 兩位亞姐說過﹐談得太私人的﹐會很容易被親戚朋友找上門﹐所以下刪一百字)。

Remarks:
Jack PalanceOscar Best Supporting Actor in 1992 for his performance as cowboy Curly Washburn in City Slickers. Stepping onstage to accept the award, the intimidatingly fit 6' 4" (1.93 m) actor looked down at 5' 7" (1.70 m) Oscar host Billy Crystal (who was also his co-star in the movie), and joked - mimicking one of his lines from the film - "Billy Crystal... I crap bigger than him." He then dropped to the floor and demonstrated his ability, at age 73, to perform one-handed push-ups. Jack died on 10 November 2006, at the age of 87.

Yes, it's important to ensure we know the One Thing of ourselves. That tells where we are and where we are heading to.

"下刪一百字"

可惜!

“寫於: 07-02-01 except 下刪一百字 ^_*”
風子也有興趣看, 寫啦寫啦寫啦 ~ :) 

有時不是怕寫關於自己的心情日誌, 而是有些事真的要留少少空間俾自己,在這裡懂得人愈多也開始沒膽量再寫得那樣白, 關於我的寫得愈來愈玄,看懂字裡行間的真的要謝謝其心思!  

也題外話, 港島東近太古城有咩好食??? 我地頭哦, 你想食咩先?

mad 姐 and 風信子:


多謝捧場﹐刪掉的, 不是甚麼不吐不快之事﹐只是當時看到電視播映此片時﹐剛好給了我一些 in sight about LIFE, 人生其實可以從另一個 perspective 去看去行去走的。

再 detail 就很容易被親戚朋友發覺了。
