英国《银幕》杂志:优雅的惊悚——《追·踪》

来源:网络    作者:杂志云小编    人气:    发布时间:2017-12-26    
《追·踪》由电影院里发现的一具尸体开始,接下来,这部优雅的“惊悚”片便对这一案件的原委展开追踪。《追·踪》,导演李霄峰的第二部故事长片,在这部电影里,他对道德、复仇、罪恶感、阶级进行了一场冷峻而又引人入胜的探讨,影片不像普通的侦探片那样精于推理,而更多是在探索那些驱使人们成为杀人犯的人性弱点。在此,强烈推荐在观看《追·踪》之前,对影片的剧透越少越好——让李霄峰的曲折反转和环形叙事更好地释放冲击力。
 
  音效设计和配乐突出杂散的节奏,让观众保持着跟角色同样的紧张
 
  《追·踪》在2017年釜山国际电影节世界首映,而李霄峰在2014年的剧情片处女作《少女哪吒》,也是亮相于此。此片由影星罗晋[微博]和聂远[微博]主演,其身临其境的神秘谋杀案叙事,也将吸引海内外的关注。
英国《银幕》杂志:优雅的惊悚——《追·踪》
  李霄峰在剧情上突破常规,首先登场的角色是调查马旭东(杨一威饰)杀人事件的警察陈维坤(聂远饰);按常理预期,这名警察将是全片的核心人物。但是,我们转眼跳到了十年之后:马旭东的谋杀仍未侦破,而此时的情节都围绕着徐峰(辛鹏饰)和王栋(罗晋饰)。前者曾神秘地离开家乡斯城,如今刚刚归来;后者则是一名因其慈悲心肠而赫赫有名的医生。影片在不同时代之间来回跳转,徐峰与王栋,还有对徐峰家暴对继父马旭东,以及王栋的情敌杜国金(黄觉饰)——他和王栋爱着同一个女人萱慧(姜珮瑶饰)。
 
  直接透露这些角色和马旭东谋杀之间的牵连实在不妥,但可以说的是,在《追·踪》中又发生了另一起重大的谋杀事件——而且两起谋杀案以意想不到的方式瓜葛相连。值得庆幸的是,李霄峰没有一门心思安排过于聪明的巧合,也没有对错综复杂的戏剧性讽刺进行半心半意的尝试。相反,他利用了影片的三个时间段——过去,“现在”(谋杀发生之时),和十年后的未来——揭示了令人发指的罪行会如何撕裂社会和个人,即使行凶者坚信他们的行为有着正当理由。时代之间的混排并不是为了增加复杂性,而是为了让时间更紧凑,暗示这些迥异的角色,因相同的命运,而不可分割地交织在一起。
 
  片中饰演王栋的罗晋,塑造了一种低调的崇高感,契合了这名一直渴求伟大的亲切、敏感的医生的性格特质。但随着《追·踪》剧情发展,我们看到了王栋对于善良的追求是如何让步于权力,而演员也捕捉到了角色堕落过程中的每一个细微差别。相比之下,辛鹏扮演了一个平庸的人,他没有王栋的社会特权,而电影也呈现了徐峰的人生因为缺失这一点而似乎更加艰难。
 
  虽然所有这些角色可以由可怕的犯罪牵连起来,但李霄峰足够聪明,他明白经济、运气这样的因素——哪些人受益,哪些人不受益——可以在不同人之间分崩离析,让他们受限于各自的命运。
 
  李霄峰与电影摄影师Joewi Verhoeven再度合作,导演倾向于变化丰富的宽银幕画面,把观众带入到各种场景中:从光怪陆离的夜店,到冥界般的墓地,再到平静湖面上那种诡异的寂静。音效设计和配乐突出杂散的节奏——像是心跳声,又像是令人不安的低吟——让观众保持着跟角色同样的紧张。
 
  尽管相比于骇人的侦探故事,《追·踪》更偏向于存在主义的神秘谋杀案,但陈维坤在叙事中的不时出现,仍在提醒我们:审判即将降临于有罪之人。聂远以十足的坚忍,在这个没有神灵的时空中,充当着一种低调而持久的道德力量——即使要花十年,他也定要逮捕罪犯。
 
  原文:Ash‘: Busan Review
 
  A dead body is found in a movie theatre at the start of Ash, and the rest of this elegant thriller traces the circumstances that led to that grisly discovery。 In his second feature, director Xiaofeng Li delivers a coldly riveting study of morality, revenge, guilt and class that’s less a whodunit and more an exploration of the human frailties that drive some to murder。 Knowing as little as possible going into Ash is highly recommended — all the better for Li’s twists and chronological loop-de-loops to register their full impact。
 
  The sound design and score emphasize stray rhythms to keep viewers as tense as the characters
 
  Ash premieres at the Busan International Film Festival, where Li’s 2014 feature debut Nezha also had its unveiling。 The film includes stars Luo Jin and Nie Yuan, and its accessible murder-mystery narrative may help it attract attention overseas。
 
  Indicative of the off-kilter plot, Li introduces us to Chen Weikun (Nie Yuan), a cop investigating the slaying of Ma Xudong (Yang Yiwei); the expectation is that this policeman will be the film’s central figure。 Instead, we flash-forward 10 years into the future: Ma’s killing was never solved, and now the action revolves around Xu Feng (Xin Peng), who has just returned home to Sicheng after being away for mysterious reasons, and Wang Dong (Luo Jin), a celebrated doctor known for his philanthropic work。 Moving back and forth between eras, the film studies these two men, as well as Xu’s abusive stepfather Ma and Du Guojin (Huang Jue), a romantic rival for the woman (Jiang Peiyao) whom Wang loves。
 
  It would be poor form to reveal exactly how these characters are connected to Ma’s killing, but let it be said that another crucial murder occurs during Ash — and that the two killings are linked in unexpected ways。 Thankfully, Li has no patience for overly clever coincidences or half-hearted attempts at convoluted dramatic ironies。 Instead, he utilizes the film’s three time periods — the past, the “present” (when the murders occur), and 10 years in the future — to reveal how heinous crimes tear communities and individuals apart, even if the perpetrators are convinced they’re justified in their actions。 The shuffling between eras isn’t meant to be tricky but, rather, to condense time, suggesting that these very different characters are inexorably fused together by their shared destiny。
 
  As Wang, Luo Jin projects a quiet nobility suitable for a sweet, sensitive doctor who early on was pegged for greatness。 But as Ash moves along, we see how Wang’s promise has slowly given way to a sense of entitlement, and the actor captures every nuance of the character’s fall from grace。 By contrast, Xin Peng plays a modest man without Wang’s societal privileges, and the movie illustrates how much harder Xu’s life has been as a result。
 
 
  This ensemble may be bonded by these grisly crimes, but Li is wise enough to recognize that factors like economics and luck — who finds love and who doesn’t — can drive wedges between people, confining them to their individual fates。
 
  Working again with cinematographer Joewi Verhoeven, Li favours dynamic widescreen compositions that take the viewer everywhere from pulsating nightclubs to an otherworldly cemetery to the eerie silence of a still lake。 The sound design and score emphasize stray rhythms — a heartbeat, a menacing hum — to keep viewers as tense as the characters。
 
  Although Ash is more of an existential murder mystery than a crackling detective story, Chen’s occasional appearance in the narrative reminds us that a reckoning is coming for the guilty parties。 With utter stoicism, Nie Yuan serves as an understated but persistent moral force in this godless universe — he’s determined to apprehend the culprits, even if it takes him a decade。
