「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

鷹狼傳奇

鷹狼傳奇



哈哈哈!不是談:CY 梁振英!


這是1985年的舊電影,我是某次在旅途上嚴重 jet lag 中,在美國的 畸寶TV 看到的。嘩!好睇到呢!我看完後當然沒有睡意,即刻上網查找,部戲叫乜名?和個男女主角是乜誰?原來是:Ladyhawke 港譯:鷹狼傳奇。

Directed by:Richard Donner

Starring:Matthew Broderick 小偷,Rutger Hauer 武士,Michelle Pfeiffer 美女,John Wood 主教。




【維基百科】In twelfth century Europe, Philippe Gaston, "The Mouse" (Matthew Broderick), is a thief facing execution who escapes the dungeons of Aquila, via the sewers, and flees to the countryside.

The Bishop of Aquila (John Wood) sends his Captain of the Guard Marquet (Ken Hutchison) to hunt down Phillipe; he and his soldiers corner Philippe, but are foiled by a mysterious black knight who reveals himself to be their former Captain, Etienne of Navarre (Rutger Hauer), traveling with a beautiful and devoted hawk. Marquet warns the Bishop of Navarre's return, who among other things summons Cezar (Alfred Molina) the wolf trapper.

Navarre tells Philippe why he saved him: the knight needs Philippe's unique knowledge to lead him inside Aquila to kill the Bishop. As they travel Philippe becomes aware of mysterious and frightening events surrounding them, including the appearance at night of a black wolf and a stunningly beautiful woman (Michelle Pfeiffer), who is unafraid of the wolf.

Navarre and the hawk are wounded in another encounter with the Bishop's men; Navarre sends the hawk with Philippe to the old monk Imperius (Leo McKern), to heal her. At the ruined castle Philippe finally realizes the truth, which Imperius confirms: the hawk is a woman named Isabeau d'Anjou, who came to live in Aquila after her father died at Antioch.

All who saw her fell in love with her, including the powerful and corrupt Bishop. But Isabeau was already in love with his Captain of the Guards, Etienne of Navarre, with whom she secretly exchanged vows.

Accidentally betrayed by their confessor, Imperius, they fled. In his insane jealousy the Bishop made a demonic pact to ensure they would be "Always together; eternally apart": by day Isabeau becomes a hawk, by night Navarre becomes a black wolf. Neither has any memory of their half-life in animal form; only at dusk and dawn of each day can they see each other in human form for one fleeting moment, but can never touch.

In despair Navarre plans to kill the Bishop or die in the attempt, making the curse irrevocable. But Imperius has discovered a way to break the curse; he and Philippe must convince the lovers to try.

If they can win through the adventures that befall them (including an encounter with Cezar), in three days' time a solar eclipse at Aquila will create "a day without a night and a night without a day": when the lovers stand together in human form before the Bishop, the curse will be broken.






故事:
很淒美的愛情故事,武士與美人兩情相悅,但是中了主教的惡咒,男的武士在日間還原人形,在晚上就變成一頭野狼,而美女則在日間就變為飛鷹,到了晚上才轉變回人形。兩人只可以在清晨和黃昏,日轉夜,夜轉日,日夜交替之時一瞬之間,互相見到一面,卻不可接觸對方。


當武士變成狼時,當美女轉為鷹時,它們都沒有意識有對方存在,也沒有記憶。武士和美女,野狼和飛鷹,都受到下咒語的主教的手下日夜追殺。日間派人獵鷹,晚上派人擒狼,主教的手下又四處追殺轉回人形時的武士和美女。


比起牛郎織女每年有一次鵲橋之會,可以手牽手共聚,Only at dusk and dawn of each day can they see each other in human form for one fleeting moment, but can never touch. 只可以在“日蝕”發生之時, WHEN "a day without a night and a night without a day",狼與鷹同時可以人形出現,短短共聚一刻!


他們之間,只有一個平凡的小偷,知道這個鷹狼秘密。日間小偷幫助武士打退敵人,和設法保護飛鷹,夜間小偷協助照顧美女,和援助被獵殺的野狼。


三人一鷹一狼一面逃跑避開追殺,一面他們就計劃在下一個“日蝕”時刻,潛入主教的城堡,當 "a day without a night and a night without a day",於日全蝕的一刻,狼與鷹同時可以人形的武士和美女出現一刻,把主教殺死,破除惡咒!





我見:
返到香港,沒有在明珠台國際台看過,到碟鋪問?可能太過久遠,啲姐姐仔哥哥仔說沒聽過,故此,不可能有得賣囉!只看過一次沒法翻看,故此評論單憑記憶,可能有失,因此只可以說:果個夜晚瞓唔得着覺,覺得好好好睇囉!

I remember seeing the ad on the newspaper, but haven't watched the movie. Sounds interesting tho.

Maybe your relatives can get a copy of the DVD in Toronto?

下期公演:豬狼傳奇,萬勿錯過!

哈哈哈! 以便兄我有預感,阿爺為安全計,只許豬狼其中一個入閘,故此豬狼只可以在北京暗闘誰可入閘,卻沒有明爭的豬狼傳奇,在香港選舉特首時上演! 因此只會是豬仁or狼仁傳奇,不過可惜仁是冇得揮/fight的,沒甚看頭!
