1、9/10 Excellent Film, Grim and Dark

9星 短评:出色的电影,冷酷而黑暗

It seems that, every few years, there are one or two Chinese films that, despite being slow-paced, dark, and lacking A-list stars, somehow manage to attract a large domestic audience without being controversial enough to risk complete censorship. In 2014, the only example I have seen so far is this, Black Coal, Thin Ice. The reason for its domestic success is presumably because of its awards at the Berlin Film Festival.

似乎每隔几年就会出现一两部中国电影,它们虽然节奏缓慢、黑暗且缺少一线明星,却能莫名其妙地吸引一大片国内观众,又不会太过争议妨碍其过审。在2014年,我看到的唯一的例子就是这部《白日焰火》。它在国内获得成功的原因,想必是它在柏林电影节中的获奖。

As the story unfolds, despite being based around a series of murders, the film has a pace more similar to an art-house film than a crime- thriller. A couple of scenes were impressively disturbing, made even more so by the slow paced, subtle atmosphere surrounding them.

随着故事的展开,虽然基于的是一系列谋杀,该片的推进节奏更接近于艺术片而非犯罪惊悚片。有一两个场景给人带来的不安叫人印象深刻,而缓慢的节奏,以及包围着他们的微妙气氛更凸显了这种效果。



2、9/10 Black Coal, Thin Ice

9星 短评:黑色的煤,薄薄的冰

I have seen various Chinese films (specially during the ''90s, the golden age of Hong Kong), but I think Black Coal, Thin Ice is the first (from what I have seen) genuinely Chinese movie, because it embraces the national idiosyncrasy and offers us a revealing look to the culture of that country. Black Coal, Thin Ice is also an excellent thriller on its own right. Its screenplay employs many elements of classic noir: the failed detective, a confusing but vaguely logical mystery and the obligatory femme fatale who might be guilty of the crimes or an innocent victim of circumstances. However, director and screenwriter Yi''nan Diao filters those components through his particular sensibility, and the result is so natural that it borders on the prosaic. For example, near the beginning of the film, there is a very short shootout, shot almost with apathy... the camera is midway and it barely moves; but the impact of the scene is tremendous, manifesting the easiness with which tragedy can come, completely lacking of the artifice and ornaments we see in many Hollywood films. This doesn''t mean that Black Coal, Thin Ice feels flat or superficial. The "anti-style" of the scenes and their minimalistic aesthetic is obviously intentional, highlighting the characters'' opaque lives and the bleak social setting of poverty and corruption, in which dignity and "political correction" are almost inexistent. And all that is frxd by a grey wintry atmosphere, ready to trample human spirit even more. In conclusion, Black Coal, Thin Ice is an innovative and fascinating interpretation of contemporary neo-noir, deceiving us with false clues, obfuscating our perception and saving the revelations for an ending which is as austere and enigmatic as the rest of the film. Black Coal, Thin Ice might not be everyone''s cup of tea, but whoever is willing to face the challenge of watching something new and unusual will surely appreciate Diao''s intention and his strange ordinary/dreamlike style.

我看过各式各样的中国电影(尤其是90年代,香港电影的黄金时代),但我觉得《白日焰火》是第一部(就我所看过的影片来说)真正的中国电影,因为它蕴含着这个国家的特质,并让我们得以一窥该国文化的本来面目。《白日焰火》就其本身来说也是一部优秀的惊悚片。其剧本采用了很多经典黑色影片的元素:落魄不得志的侦探,一个让人困惑却又依稀符合逻辑的谜,加上蛇蝎美人,她可能犯有罪行,也可能只是个人境遇的无辜受害者。然而,导演兼编剧刁亦男通过他独有的敏感对这些组成部分进行了过滤,得到的结果是如此浑然无迹,以至于濒临乏味的边缘。比如说,在电影开篇后不久,有一场非常简练的枪战,拍得几乎不带感情…摄影机置于中间,几乎不作移动,但这个场景带来的冲击力是巨大的,清楚显示了悲剧可能轻易就会来临,完全没有我们在很多好莱坞电影中能看到的那些机巧和装饰。但这并不意味着《白日焰火》在观感上会显得扁平化或是肤浅。这些“反套路化”的场景及其极简美学显然是刻意为之,凸显了人物不透明的生活,以及充满贫穷腐败的、近乎荒残的社会环境,在这样的环境中,尊严和“政治正确”几乎是不存在的。所有这些是由一种灰色的冬日气氛架构起来的,时刻准备着进一步践踏人们的精神。总而言之,《白日焰火》是对当代新黑色电影的一次新颖而迷人的诠释,用错误线索误导我们,混淆我们的感知,并把揭秘一路留到了结局,而这结局就和影片其他部分一样凝练和高深莫测。《白日焰火》可能不合所有人的口味,但那些愿意接受挑战去观看一些新鲜而不同凡响的片子的观众,一定会赞赏刁导的意图,及其平凡而又梦幻的奇异风格。

3、10/10 Classic Noir meets Chinese Realism

10星 短评:经典黑色电影遭遇中国式现实主义

In snow covered streets surrounded by perpetual darkness detectives and suspects are made distinguishable only by the soft glow of neon signs. Faces are shrouded by shadow, characters motives are unclear. We are in very classic noir territory in Black Coal, Thin Ice.

大雪覆盖的大街被无休止的黑暗包围着,这让侦探和嫌疑犯变得无法区分,只能依靠霓虹灯柔和的光晕。脸庞被阴影遮盖,人物的动机模糊不明。我们就这样置身于《白日焰火》那非常经典的黑色电影疆界之中。



4、8/10 It Gets Icier By The Minute In China''s Siberia

8星 短评:在中国的西伯利亚,每分钟都变得更加冰冷

This film noir detective story with fantasy elements takes place in China''s northernmost corner, Heilongjiang province, in a nondescxt industrial city where the grip of winter gets colder and colder as the story progresses. You will need to pay attention, as the plot is not explained verbally and you have to notice a lot of visual cues. The characters do not talk much really, and when they do utter a sentence or two, it has nothing to do with the plot. You could almost think that the director would be Jim Jarmusch but he''s not obviously. Diao Yinan has seen an Aki Kaurismäki film or two, one can tell, and it is no wonder that the film was well received by the Berlin festival crowd. It is not the kind of film Chinese audiences would love, though. This does not make BCTI any worse as a film. It has a dark and twisted, sometimes silly sense of humour. Once you get the hang of it, the plot is easy to follow yet intriguing. Who dun-it - most viewers will not have a clue but neither does the police! The People''s Republic does not send it''s finest this far out in the north. They also have very little to work with to be honest. Detective Zhang who is obsessed with the case has been sacked from the force for very obvious reasons including serious drinking. In addition he can''t skate and he''s in Heilongjiang, which you will notice is not a good thing. The film wrings a lot of atmosphere from the utterly unpleasant surroundings. Excellent actors add to it. If you enjoyed the Coen brothers'' Fargo I can see no reason why you wouldn''t enjoy Black Coal, Thin Ice. In the final scene, the original Chinese name of the film, Fireworks in Daylight, will be explained - sort of.

这部黑色电影中的侦探故事带有几分幻想元素,发生在中国的极北角落,黑龙江省的一个毫无特色的工业城市中,处于严冬中的城市随着故事的进展变得越来越冷了。你必须要密切注意,因为故事情节并没有在口头上解释清楚,而且你必须去注意很多目视可见的提示。人物话都不多,而当他们说出一两句话时,却和情节扯不上任何关系。你几乎可以把这个导演想象成贾木许,但显然他并不是。你能看出来,刁亦男是看过一两部阿基·考里斯马基的电影的,无怪乎这部电影会深受柏林电影节观众的好评。但这不是中国观众会喜欢的电影类型。但从电影本身来说,这完全不会让《白日焰火》减色。它带着一种黑暗、扭曲,时而还傻傻的幽默感。而一旦你熟悉了它这种路数,故事情节就容易跟进了,却还是能引人入胜。是谁干的?大部分的观看者是毫无头绪的,但警方也一样!在遥远的北方,人民共和国并没有派出他们最优秀的警察。坦率地说,他们也没有什么工作可做。沉迷于这个案子的张探员因为显而易见的原因已经被解雇了,包括严重酗酒。此外他不会滑冰,而他可是身在黑龙江,你会注意到这可不是什么好事。该片从令人极端不悦的环境中提炼出了相当可观的氛围。出色的演员更增其色。如果你喜欢科恩兄弟的《冰血暴》,那我不觉得你会有任何理由不喜欢《白日焰火》。在最后一场戏中,该片最初的中文名字,白日焰火,会在某种程度上得到解释。

(译注:贾木许(Jim Jarmusch)是著名的美国独立电影导演,以极简主义独步影坛,拥有强烈的个人视觉风格,代表作有《破碎之花》等)

5、9/10 Enigmatic mystery

9星 短评:高深莫测的谜

A highly atmospheric and fascinating mystery, set in the working class regions of Northern China. It is compelling from beginning to end, enigmatic, tragic and beautiful. It has no heroes. It ends with heartbreak and farce. It should be watched more than once.

一个氛围极为独特且引人入胜的谜,背景设定在中国北方的劳动阶级。从头到尾都很让人信服,高深莫测、极富悲剧性,却又很美丽。里面没有英雄。以荒诞且让人心碎的方式结束。是那种应该多看几遍的电影。

It compares, in my mind, to the police procedurals of Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo.

在我看来,它可以与马伊·舍瓦尔和佩尔·瓦勒的警察办案类作品媲美。

(译注:马伊·舍瓦尔 Maj Sjowall (1935-),佩尔·瓦勒 Per Wahloo (1926-1975),著名瑞典侦探小说作家。这对夫妇共同创作了侦探小说史上著名的马丁·贝克探案系列,被誉为史上最佳“警察探案小说”之一,对侦探小说的创作影响深远;两位都是坚定的GCZY者)



7、9/10 A Masculine Poet of Northeast China

9星 短评:来自中国东北的一首阳刚诗篇

The movie specializes in the construction of atmosphere and depiction of spirits. Stillness speaks.

该电影专攻氛围的构建以及对心灵的刻画。寂静会说话。
