谈谈国民岳父韩寒的首部电影

Han’s debut off to head start

I watched Han Han’s directorial debut, The Continent, and the latest installment of Guo Jingming’s Tiny Times series, around the same time. The reason is obvious. Both of them are best-selling authors who have turned into film directors.
不久前,我先后看了韩寒的导演处女作《后会无期》和郭敬明的《小时代3》。原因显而易见,他们都是由畅销书作家转型而成的电影导演。

While I found Guo’s Tiny Times 3 amusing, with The Continent, which was released a week later, I went to the cinema thinking: “Well, this may be something I’ve been waiting for — a more serious film.” No offense to Guo and his Tiny Times. Maybe I’m just a bigger fan of Han, believing that the talented writer, racecar driver and opinion leader is capable of making something special.
尽管郭敬明的《小时代3》比《后会无期》早上映一周,而且看上去很有趣,但是,去电影院时,我想,“这(《后会无期》)也许就是我一直期待的:一部严肃的电影。”当然,我无意冒犯郭敬明和他的《小时代3》。也许,这只是因为我更喜欢韩寒,相信这样一个才华横溢的作家、赛车手、以及意见领袖有能力创造出一些与众不同的作品。

Generally, The Continent is about three young men from an island off east China who go on a road trip to the western regions and, along the way, fulfill some of their personal goals. Unsurprisingly, it’s about youth, dreams and farewells.
电影《后会无期》主要讲述了来自中国东边海岛的三个年轻人,横跨中国大陆去往西部,一路完成各自人生目标的故事。毋庸置疑,这是一个关于青春,梦想与告别的故事。

The subject matter is a fitting but safe choice by Han, and his signature literary style and humor is present throughout the 100 minutes. Of course, working on a 50-million-yuan film project is so much more complicated than writing a novel. For example, how do you transfer the script to a limited number of frames; or how do you convey Han’s vision through the actors’ performances?
这个主题对韩寒而言是一个合适而安全的选择,韩寒标志性的文学风格以及韩式幽默在100分钟的电影里被发挥的淋漓尽致。当然,拍摄一部5000万元的电影要比创作一部小说要复杂的多。比如,如何通过有限的画面展现剧本的内容?如何通过演员的表演准确地传达韩寒的想法?

From this perspective, Han has done a wonderful job setting the tone. For a first-time director, the completeness of storytelling and the coherence between the pictures and sound are very skilled and sophisticated.
就这一点而言,韩寒为电影定下很好的基调。作为导演处女秀,这部电影在故事的完整性,图像与声音的连贯性方面都可圈可点,展现出难得的老练与细致。


So, what is Han’s message here? There’s no straightforward preaching or political implications anywhere to be found in The Continent. This isn’t what I expected of Han, who gained fame at a young age and received as much criticism as accolades along the way.
那么,韩寒到底想通过这部电影表达什么呢?影片中没有直接的说教或是政治性暗示。这与我心中的韩寒有所不同:作为年轻时就已名声大噪的作家,他一直饱受赞美与批评。

That’s kind of a relief, though, because otherwise, he would be one of those filmmakers who take their social responsibility in a literal and shallow way. It’s also a sign of matureness for the 32-year-old Han, who’s no longer a cynic that always cries out for justice.
也许,这是一种解脱。否则,韩寒将成为又一个用表面而肤浅的方式承担社会责任的电影人。这也是一个成熟的标志。对于32岁的韩寒而言,他已不再是那个愤世嫉俗、为正义哭天抢地的人了。

Instead, Han talks about something more authentic: one’s self-identification, and the distance between one’s dreams and the reality.
相反,现在的韩寒则更多地描述真实的事物:人们的自我认同,梦想与现实之间的距离等等。

Either you’re someone with lofty ambitions and an adventurous spirit, or a commonplace person who sometimes worries that you will be ordinary forever. In this film, everyone can find some peace, better yet, a little courage.
不管你是一个有着远大抱负、充满冒险精神的人,还是一个担心自己会永远碌碌无为的平凡人,在这部电影里,你都能找到属于自己的一份安宁,甚至还能得到一点勇气。
