投名狀
 

Actor : Li, Jet Lau, Tak Wah Andy Takeshi Kaneshiro Xu, Jing Lei
Director : Chan, Ho San Peter
 

演員: 李連杰 劉德華 金城武 徐靜蕾
導演: 陳可辛

China in the mid-19th century: the suffering of 430 million Chinese under the corrupt rule of the Qing dynasty set the stage for the Taiping Rebellion. During the chaos of the decade long civil war, 50 million people died in battle or from starvation...
 

《投名狀》原型為清朝四大奇案之一,30多年前導演張徹以此為藍本拍下了經典之作《刺馬》。時隔多年,名導陳可辛將其重新搬上銀幕,他表示:早在劇本策劃階段我腦子?奡N有這個概念,但是《刺馬》這個片名總是讓媒體拿來與邵氏老版影片對比,實際上我們加入了很多虛構的情節和想像力,並非是邵氏經典的重拍,更不想因此對觀眾產生誤導。兄弟結義是全片的關鍵,更是全片道德價值觀的基礎,故此更名為《投名狀》。
《投名狀》的動作


In the autumn of 1870, General Pang (played by Jet Li) stands high atop the city walls attired in official governor's robes. Peering down upon the site of his inauguration, he is filled with ambition and dreams. Pang has taken a path of no return; had he chosen differently, he might have been one of the heroes to later overthrow the corrupt Qing imperial regime and establish a new China. He could have changed the course of history....


陳可辛請來的是中國最好的三個動作指導之一程小東。在拍舒城大戰一幕時,陳可辛要求程小東:我希望那個鏡頭是在人群?堶情A我希望後面的人能看到這些武器從前面那些哥們兒的背後出來,我還要好多臉部細節,要讓觀眾看戲的時候如同身臨戰場。而程小東剛愛狂拍大場面效果。最後協商的結果是:陳可辛專心拍他想關注的那些細節,士兵流血的臉部、殺紅眼的猙獰表情,而金戈鐵馬的大場面就讓程小東來調度。這一戰拍了20幾天,在電影?堸臟?12分鐘,成為全片最好看的一場惡戰。


But two bandits and a woman are responsible for changing the course of his life - they help him achieven his goals, but will ultimately be the cause of his demise. The two bandits are his sworn blood brothers: Zhao Er-Hu (played by Andy Lau) and Jiang Wu-Yang (played by Takeshi Kaneshiro). The woman who comes between them is Zhao's wife Lian (played by Xu Jingle). A born leader, Zhao Er-Hu is a man of honor. To ensure the survival of his village during the war, he leads a band of marauding bandits. They raid other impoverished villages, but leave theri victims with enough to sustain themselves. Zhao maintains a code of honor, displaying compassion for the poor. Sharing the spoils with his villagers, he has earned their loyalty and respect. The two loves of his life are his wife Lian, and his little brother Jiang Wu-Yang who he adopted when Jiang was orphaned at the age 13.

《投名狀》的攝影

  曾經六度獲得金像獎最佳攝影的黃岳泰,是香港影壇名副其實的大腕,他稱陳可辛是特別會"壓榨"人智慧的導演。首先是大場面的拍法。黃岳泰用了一個"從影30年來最多"形容演員之眾。"拍幾千人的大場面我們動用8臺攝影機同時拍,3條的話就是24個機位。拍文戲也要同時啟動三四台攝影機,這對我們攝影來說真是受寵若驚,超出預期。"這樣的拍法,讓黃岳泰迸發火花,"抓住瞬間的反應會自然很多,演員的自然流露都留下來了。"

1870年秋,大哥 (李連杰飾演) 一身官服,在城?棖賒謊?自己的就職典禮舞臺;充滿理想、胸懷壯志的他,如果沒有走上這條不歸路,極可能是推翻腐敗清庭的新中國革命者之一,創大事業名留青史,可惜...


Jiang Wu-Yang is a charismatic outlaw, a cold-blooded killer filled with romantic idealism. He possesses both the callousness and the innocence of youth. He is like an animal operating on instinct but also values the ties of brotherhood. When Pang risks his life to save him, taking an arrow for him in a battle against the Taiping rebels, Jiang is indebted to Pang and develops an intense attachment. He worships Pang, putting him above all others - even Zhao the brother who adopted him.


兩個強盜和一個女人改變了他的一生,造就了他的成功,亦導致他最後的毀滅。這兩個強盜是曾跟他矢誓生死與共的結拜兄弟:二哥 (劉德華飾演) 和三弟 (金城武飾演),而那個女人正是二哥的妻子蓮生 (徐靜蕾飾演)。

率性而為的二哥,乃一條光明磊落的好漢,在亂世中淪為強盜,帶著幾百人到處劫掠,他為人盜亦有道,就算打劫也"劫七留三",留一條活路給被劫的村民,而劫掠所得就拿來分給和他同住一條山村的良民,所以深得眾心。二哥一生人最愛兩個人,一個是蓮生,一個就是十三歲便跟了他做強盜的三弟,把自小成為孤兒的三弟視如親弟。

After Qing troops pillage Zhao's village, Pang convinces Zhao and his bandits to join the Qing army. Jiang agrees to the proposal under the condition that Pang joins their brotherhood. With the future interests of the village in mind, Zhao also agrees to make Pang his blood brother, and relinquishes his role as leader and "big brother." Pang's initial motive is to end war and restore peace to the land - to do so he must first rise to power. With the help of Zhao, Jiang and their bandits, Pang establishes the Shan Regiment under the Qing army to counter the Taiping Rebels.


三弟身上有一種獨特的男人魅力,除了狼的野性和殺手的狠冷,更有著少年才有的天真浪漫;因此在他的生命中,同生共死的兄弟情義是他視如生命的永?皕P情。自從在打劫太平軍糧車的一役中,大哥這個陌生人為替他擋箭而受了傷,令他深感救命的恩情,天生的狂熱使然,他對大哥的崇拜竟超過他對二哥的崇拜。

在二哥等人的山村被清軍洗劫,付出傷亡慘重的代價後,三弟極力主張他們三人結拜為兄弟,由大哥帶領他們投效清廷,二哥為了不想令三弟失望,也為了不想自己的一班同村兄弟陷入絕境,他不計較個人得失,將首領地位拱手讓給大哥。


As his forces grow more powerful over the years so does his ambition. Corrupted by his hunger for power, Pang soon stops at nothing to eliminate his enemies and achieve his goal, including the massacre of 4,000 prisoners of war who Zhao vowed to protect. As a result, the brotherhood collapses. Zhao severs his ties with Pang while Jiang remains devoted to Pang, and his promise of a better future. But Pang's ruthlessness and his desire for Lian, Inevitably leads him to murder Zhao. Poised to become governor, Pang is about to ascend the platform for his inauguration, literally just a step away from the seat of power. But his past betrayals, including the murder of his brother Zhao Er-Hu, catch up with him. At his moment of glory, his life ends at the hands of an assassin - his beloved brother Jiang.

作為男人世界中的一個好兄弟,二哥在女人世界中卻是一個失敗的情人,一個不合格的丈夫,濃烈的大男人熱血,令他少了那種迷住女人的浪漫魅力;他的妻子蓮生卻偏偏又是那種深信一見鍾情的浪漫主義者。所以,儘管他當年救出被賣到揚州當雛妓的蓮生,儘管他很努力的去關懷蓮生,但目不識丁的他就是沒有蓮生所喜歡的文人書卷氣,始終得不到她真心的愛。

  為實現天下沒有戰爭的太平盛世理想,大哥借助以二哥、三弟為首的一班兄弟的力量,成立"山字營"暫時為清廷效力,原來是要借助攻打太平天國結集軍力;但是隨著他大權在握,大哥變得越來越野心勃勃,令他要清除一切的障礙。他不惜和二哥決裂,屠殺被二哥勸降的太平軍降兵,只為怕降兵造反。他利用三弟的狂熱性格,說服他站向自己那一邊。

本來,大哥距離成功已僅有一步之遙,但他的作為傷透了對他崇拜不已的三弟。就在就職大典上,就在權勢如日中天的最輝煌時刻,大哥竟橫死於刺客之手... ...
