「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

不一樣的童年

不一樣的童年



每個人都有一個不一樣的童年,童年本是應該無憂無慮的,童年本是應該天真的、幼稚的,但現今的時代,童年可以是苦難的,苦難令到兒童早熟,年紀輕輕已經是個老人精,懂得睇大人的眉頭眼額,懂得曲意逢迎,祇是表面上扮可愛,因為大人喜歡兒童的”可愛“模樣,可以是個『賣點』。


你不見演藝界,不時發掘天才童星,中外都有,他們賣的有:賣可愛!賣世故!賣驚險!甚至賣恐怖!電影《孤疑Orphan 就是由一位真正的小女孩,去演出電影中,永遠長不大的成年人,其實是個已經卅多歲的女人,困在一個”小女孩“的軀殼裡。




我看 trailer clipping,已經毛骨悚然,當然沒有購票入場。電影公司要童星演這些角色,究竟”保護兒童“的組織,有沒有權過問呢?聽到一些”收養孤兒“組織的微弱聲音!而且還要小女孩去演,三十多歲女人色誘養父。







好了,還是聽聽歌罷!





張艾嘉的版本





《童年》 作詞作曲:羅大佑




池塘邊的榕樹上

知了在聲聲叫著夏天

操場邊的鞦韆上 

只有蝴蝶停在上面

黑板上老師的粉筆

還在拼命嘰嘰喳喳寫個不停

等待著下課 等待著放學

等待遊戲的童年




福利社裏面什麼都有

就是口袋裏沒有半毛錢

諸葛四郎和魔鬼黨

到底誰搶到那支寶劍

隔壁班的那個男孩

怎麼還沒經過我的窗前

嘴裏的零食 手裏的漫畫

心裏初戀的童年




總是要等到睡覺前 

才知道功課只作了一點點

總是要等到考試以後

才知道該唸的書都沒有唸

一寸光陰一寸金

老師說過寸金難買寸光陰

一天又一天 一年又一年

迷迷糊糊的童年




沒有人知道為什麼

太陽總下到山的那一邊

沒有人能夠告訴我 

山裏面有沒有住著神仙

多少的日子裏 

總是一個人面對著天空發呆

就這麼好奇 

就這麼幻想 

這麼孤單的童年




陽光下蜻蜓飛過來 

一片片綠油油的稻田

水彩蠟筆和萬花筒

畫不出天邊那一條彩虹

什麼時候才能像高年級的同學

有張成熟與長大的臉

盼望著假期 盼望著明天 

盼望長大的童年

一天又一天  一年又一年 

盼望長大的童年





羅大佑 自彈自唱的版本










聽過由成年人唱的“童年”後,這裡有童聲唱的 童年 北京天使兒童合唱團 MP3版,也是我最愛聽的,可惜”你喉“和”土豆“都找不到《崴秩敖》。

照你咁講,
童星咪只可以做可愛和天真無邪的角式囉!?

Remember an old movie "Exorcist" by Linda Blair. She played a possessed child in the movie. There was lots of criticism back then as well.

Every time a child plays a more unconventional role in movies. People make noise. I personally wouldn't take them seriously, especially those international adoption advocates. Their goal is to keep the supply of children up, so that rich childless people can adopt.

Orphan sounds creepy and disturbing but I think I may give it a shot when DVD comes out.

童星好難演活變態殺手/無間道既角色﹐因此只能做天真角色

我期待Dakota Fanning未來的表現.

新鮮兄:多謝留言!補祝生辰快樂,年年都有今日,長命百歲,日日都咁新鮮!

然則兄臺認為童星須要演些甚麼角色呢?

就算派演天才的幼年,演名人的幼年,etc etc 都是因該有童真的一面。

若童星不演回兒童的角色,就變今次提出的“孤疑”,那些扭曲的角色,維基百科說她要演出色誘養父,豈不令人嘆息?

成年人要童星演這些角色,她的父母監護人,竟容許這些事發生,但看看香港的雅虎觀眾影評,竟然讚好。票房報捷,這豈不助長電影公司,多拍這些題材的電影,為投資者賺錢,為了金錢利潤,令更多的兒童慘被剝削?

Exile,thank you for bringing up Exorcist 好像是被香港譯作:驅魔人,年前好似在全世界重映,我沒有入場,我是堅決反對,成年人唆使兒童做這些角色。

不過 the girl in Exorcist was claimed to be an adult, this I could not verify!

收收兄:收買仔必能在兄臺庇護下渡過童真的快樂童年!

Agnes,DF 較好的角色,祇是在 Charlotte's Web,演保護小小豬的好心女孩,在與 Tom Cruise 演的那部電影,War of the Worlds 祇記得她的 screaming!近作 Push 她處于鑒戒年齡,慘不忍睹!

Hollywood is famous for pushing the envelope (to stretch established limits). I hate child stars being asked to do sex or rape scene.

色誘養父? Aiya! That's really awful.

Remember Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver? She played a teen prostitute and won an award. At least she was like 13? 14?

I agree. "Push" was horrible. It was one of the worst movies I've seen lately.

Agree no more! Indeed!

It was written on wikipedia ~“seduce”, indeed.

Oh,too bad indeed,Jodie used to be one of my favourite actresses.

Yes Indeed, I went to see that too, with regret!
