Blue Valentine 有人喜歡藍

一直都很想看"Blue Valentine", 還以為快落畫了, 這星期竟然找了母親一起去看. 的確有點blue, 但總的還可以.

其實不多看Ryan Gosling的演出(看imdb才想起原來曾演出"The Notebook"(2004)及"Remember the Titans"(2000)), 不過頗喜歡他的俊臉. Michelle Williams則真的是演技派, 好像參與過的角色都能發揮她的演技.

導演Derek Cianfrance作品都以電視紀錄片為主, 大家應該沒多看過他的作品. 如果以首部長片來說, 已算有不錯成績了.

不算特別喜歡此片, 不過男女主角都演得令人滿意, 他倆都是本片的監製, 可能更能投入當中.
有說電影像"Revolutionary Road", 不過此片又未至於那樣沉重, 雖然都不是那些看了令人開心的故事. 就是一段愛情的開始和接近終結或變質的故事.

電影不斷來回男女主角認識初期及熱戀和婚後生活迫人感情轉淡兩個時空. 化妝及造型都令人信服, 懷疑Michelle Williams有刻意增肥來演婚後那一段(又或演年輕一段時刻意減肥).

觀眾應該都會有點共鳴. 相信人人都經歷過由熱戀到感情穩定甚至到一天發現原來可以互相相害.

男主角Dean(Ryan Gosling)說的一翻話(和男同事傾偈時說):

"I feel like men are more romantic than women. When we get married we marry, like, one girl, 'cause we're resistant the whole way until we meet one girl and we think I'd be an idiot if I didn't marry this girl she's so great. But it seems like girls get to a place where they just kinda pick the best option… 'Oh he's got a good job.' I mean they spend their whole life looking for Prince Charming and then they marry the guy whos got a good job and is gonna stick around."

看完更覺得Ryan Gosling真的很吸引. :) 他是那種即使活像個loser你也想死心塌地地愛他的男人! (死唔死... )

電影配樂也不錯, 可以考慮買OST. 另忘了說, 電影中大特寫特別多, 也是男女主角演技的考驗.

Rotten Tomatoes有87%.

Wow, happy belated birthday!
Thank you for answering. I bet you know the reason I asked. Because Blue Valentine is a bit controversial on this side of the pond for its explicit sex scenes, that's by America's somewhat puritan standard. So it's an adult movie so to speak ... I wouldn't want to see that with my mom .... But good for you, MD.
