「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

Ground Hog Day 土撥鼠日

Ground Hog Day 土撥鼠日




Feb. 2﹐ 2007 NEWs reported that Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow, so an earlier Spring is being expected, but how true ??? In traditional weather lore, if a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day and fails to see its shadow because the weather is cloudy, winter will soon end. If the groundhog sees its shadow because the weather is bright and clear, it will be frightened and run back into its hole, and the winter will continue for six more weeks. 【註一】



Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania 每年二月二日﹐都舉辦土撥鼠日Ground Hog Day 慶典﹐這個傳說被拍成一部電影﹐ Groundhog Day (1993) 港譯: 偷天情緣。




Starring:

Bill Murray as Phil Connors

Andie MacDowell as Rita



Directed by:
Harold Ramis





故事說:

電視臺的天氣報導員Phil Connors﹐是一個口臭的人﹐得罪人多﹐稱呼人少﹐不受同事歡迎。就在每年一度的土撥鼠日Ground Hog Day﹐電視臺派 Phil﹐編導 Rita﹐和攝影師 Lary 到
Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania ﹐現場報導。 但報導完畢回程時遇到大風雪﹐被逼返回 Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania 過一晚夜。


一覺醒來 Phil 發覺﹐原來時間重返到已經過去的昨天早晨﹐他要重複報導土撥鼠Punxsutawney Phil 所作的預測﹐完畢後回程時又遇到大風雪﹐被逼返回Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania 又過一晚夜﹐但只有他記得起這事情曾經發生過。

如此 Phil 每天睡醒都重回到FEB 2﹐ 二月二號的早晨﹐重複再重複﹐重複再重複﹐每天一樣的報導﹐重複回程時遇到大風雪﹐被逼返回
Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania 過一晚夜﹐ 但只有他記得起這事情曾經發生過。


起初 Phil 發覺很有趣﹐因為只有他有過去天昨發生過的記憶﹐他就可以作弄其他人﹐但天天如是﹐重複再重複﹐重複再重複﹐有趣的變成沒趣了。怎樣才能離開呢? 但總是被風雪逼著回到﹐Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania 過一晚夜。Phil 自殺了﹐但當時間一到他又重頭開始同一天﹐重複再重複﹐重複再重複。


最後Phil 發覺﹐他可以用他的記憶去幫助他人﹐他較好時間﹐在指定時間﹐去指定地點﹐去幫人﹐去救人﹐並且他學會了關心別人﹐他改變了他的臭口﹐他甚至由不懂彈鋼琴﹐他利用重複的每一天去跟老師學﹐在土撥鼠日Ground Hog Day 慶典彈奏一曲﹐並獲得 Rita 對他另眼相看﹐和他結為情侶﹐ 渡過一個甜蜜的晚上。



第二天Phil 起床﹐開始又重複的一天﹐但他發覺今天不同了﹐那個魔咒消失了﹐他和 Rita 同時踏進新的一天﹐二月三日﹐Phil 帶著 Rita 離開
Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania

故事很簡單﹐但點出其實我們一班打工仔﹐每天上班下班﹐也是過著十分黑板的生活﹐每天做差不多相同的事情﹐如果不是天天爆大鑊﹐返工是重複再重複做同一般的事情。【註二】


如果你對刻板的工作﹐開始厭倦﹐希望讀完我這篇短文後﹐可以在工作中尋找生活的趣味﹐還可以在工餘攪攪新意思﹐攪攪新玩意﹐讓刻板的生活添加一點色彩。



我從眾多博友部落s﹐讀到不少生活的趣味﹐在工餘攪攪新意思﹐攪攪新玩意﹐讓黑板的生活加一點色彩。眾多博友在工餘﹐有參加樂團攪攪音樂﹐有人學書法﹐也有人當義工﹐ 去幫助有需要的人﹐還有不少是利用工餘﹐去進修自我增值的。

【註一】:今天三月十六日﹐星期五﹐剛好距二月二日六個星期﹐我不知道北美洲的春天﹐是否早來...........

【註二】: Again 本來寫了一點有關於自己的經歷﹐但談得太私人的﹐會很容易被親戚朋友找上門﹐所以下刪 150 字。






後記:
根據 雅虎 Sandra Bullock 有部新片就上﹐”Premonition" , 戲中她的丈夫死于交通意外﹐但每天醒來﹐丈夫活生生睡在她床邊﹐跟着交通意外重演丈夫死了。Sandra Bullock 怎樣解開每天重演的惡咒呢?



後後記:
07-03-20 再上 雅虎電影網頁﹐看別人的評論。原來戲中 Sandra 的丈夫是在星期三遇到車禍死亡的﹐而 Sandra 不停的在時間線上﹐跳前跳後﹐所以她的丈夫死完又生﹐跟着又死了。Sandra 把稜碎的事件﹐在 Weekly Planner 上寫下來﹐漸漸一幅較完整的圖畫漸漸成形。最關鍵的就是要﹐令丈夫逃避過星期三的車禍﹐她能辦到嗎? 還是命運是不可逆轉的呢?

"土撥鼠日"

聽講預測好準!

aulina said...

我好鍾意呢套戲架!sliding doors主橋好似,好好玩的意念,自問寫唔出亦想唔到。

巔巔兄:

"聽講預測好準! "

你是留美派﹐當年是否就近 Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania ???

the inner space said...

娜姐:

Sliding Door 緣份兩面睇 電影的story﹐是因為只相差一秒﹐成為兩條Time Lines﹐出現不同 outcomes﹐ 似孚同Groundhog Day 不同。


但我有一篇在DRAFT 的“博”可以提前登出。

mad dog said...

我都記得咾齣戲.
喂, 你成日要下刪百幾字, 會唔會好無癮架???

the inner space said...

Mad 姐:

只此兩次 (上次在談 City Slickers I )﹐因文字都是之前寫落﹐但登出時發現﹐內容太過私人﹐才決定下刪一段。

如不加註解﹐讀者會發覺上一段跟下一段﹐有脫節現象。

After that 我已沒有寫下太 personal 的 matters on my blog(s).


多謝回應 ^_*

齣新戲裡面, 同sandra bullock做對手戲既係nip tuck 個男主角呀. 不過真係唔係好鍾意sandra bullock, 睇完佢做lake house更加唔掂...

the inner space said...

Mad 姐:

等我搵番我睇完Lake House 寫的 review 先﹐ ok....哈哈哈! 噢大緻說﹐Sandra Bullock 的化妝和衣著﹐造形令她跟對手Keanu Reeves 似姐弟戀。曾看過韓版﹐扭曲的劇情不及韓版好﹐還有青春版被荷李活改成了中年版云云!!!

收買佬 said...

當年我因為某些原因翻睇了這套戲差不多成百次, 攪到我
都變了好似Bill Murray 咁, repeat 又 repeat....:)

梁巔巔 said...

Space 兄:

收收兄:

可以claim 世界紀錄呀!!! 1993年距今十三年唔仲有效冇?

the inner space said...

巔巔兄:

我當然記得你是台灣幫﹐但講返轉頭﹐成年半在德克薩斯州唸書﹐應該可以列入留美派喇!!!

Re: Your comments at lotusandcedar

Ha ha !! My piano lesson teacher(s) are not Rita-look-alike, but they seem to be good teachers :)

the inner space said...

微豆兄:
Rita was the beauty Phil won back after learning piano lesson(s)!

In the movie Phil just paid the piano teacher that old lady once for one lesson.

IF you can imagin, he repeating the same day right? So he began with a pair of new hands but each day he improved himself. Only he accumulated the memories and the techniques the teacher did not.

I see, got it. Thx !!
