“致青春”赵薇成功或是失败?

 



  影片《致我们终将逝去的青春》(So Young)正在热映中。作为赵薇的导演处女作,该片讲述了一个青春与情感的故事,引起不少人的共鸣。你给赵导打几分呢?
  
  The reason I wanted to see So Young is that it's Zhao Wei's directorial debut. I guess I didn't expect much else.
  
  我想要去看《致我们终将逝去的青春》的原因是:该片是赵薇的导演处女作。对于影片本身我并未抱太大的期望值。
  
  Is it a mature first project for the actress? Definitely. Is it a good film in general? Not in my opinion.
  
  对于演而优则导的赵薇来说,这是她献上的完美首秀吗?答案当然是肯定的。但这是一部出色的影片吗?在我看来并非如此。
  
  So Young has everything a popular youth film should have: Beautiful young actors, a story about colorful campus life and intricate romance, and a strong sense of nostalgia.
  
  《致我们终将逝去的青春》拥有一切青春题材的流行电影应该具备的元素:养眼的俊男靓女;丰富多彩的校园生活;错综复杂的感情;强烈的怀旧色彩。
  
  The leading female character Zheng Wei (Yang Zishan) enrolls at university to stay close to her childhood sweetheart Lin Jing (Han Geng)。 But when Lin moves abroad to pursue his education, life loses its luster for Zheng. Until she meets the dashing yet aloof Chen Xiaozheng (Mark Chao)。
  
  女主人公郑微(杨子珊饰)考上大学,为的是和自己青梅竹马的恋人林静(韩庚饰)在一起。但在林静出国留学后,郑微的生活失去了目标,直到她遇见帅气而冷漠的陈孝正(赵又廷饰演)。
  
  The film also features a bunch of vivid supporting characters: The campus queen who falls for a worthless wretch, the rich kid who is rejected by his dream girl, and Zheng's boyish roommate with a huge ego.
  
  该片同时也塑造了许多鲜活的配角:爱上窝囊废的校花、被梦中情人拒绝的富二代、自尊心极强的假小子室友。
  
  Together they put on quite a show under Zhao's direction and her smooth and aesthetic camera work. You'll find yourself laughing over their trivial yet funny life on campus in the early 1990s.
  
  在赵薇的执导下,在一系列流畅且富有美感的影像中,该片的确表现不俗。上世纪90年代初,那些细微而有趣的校园生活令人莞尔。
  
  As expected, the film's second half takes the audience to years later when the characters have moved on into different corners of society. But the film unexpectedly breaks with the comedic vibe and turns into a serious discussion about the meaning of life and love.
  
  不出所料,影片后半段将观众带到了数年后,此时片中人物都已步入社会,天各一方。但影片却出乎意料地打破喜剧氛围,转入对生活意义与爱情真谛的严肃探讨。
  
  Through the events in their current life and flashbacks of their college years, the film portrays how life has changed these characters. And that's where the film goes awry.
  
  通过展现片中人物当下的生活状态和一组追忆大学生活的闪回镜头,影片描绘出生活是如何改变他们的。而这正是全片失误的所在。
  
  The emotional transition of the characters seems overhasty. If you watch the 2011 youth film You're the Apple of My Eye, you'll find that the film's resonance with the audience accumulates from the beginning ― through details like sexual fantasies and crushes in puberty ― and peaks in the end. In So Young, the sudden emotional touch with endless rhetorical lines just isn't enough to strike a chord.
  
  人物角色的情感过渡有点操之过急。如果你看过2011年上映的青春片《那些年,我们一起追的女孩》,那么你就会发现,那部影片从开头对于性幻想以及青春期情窦初开等细节的描写、再到结局时的高潮,都能让观众始终产生共鸣。在《致我们终将逝去的青春》中,这种伴随着一连串的华丽台词而突然爆发的情感并不足以触动观众的心弦。
  
  Zhao also clearly wanted to give every character a proper ending. But unfortunately she tried a bit too hard, making the film's second half feel lengthy and unedited.
  
  赵薇显然也想赋予每个角色一个恰当的归宿。但可惜她有点着力过猛,这使得电影的后半段让人感觉冗长杂乱。
  
  Even so, given my reasonably low expectations, Zhao still gets full credits for her effort as a first-time director. Without her insightful input and observations, I think the film would have been worse.
  
  即便如此,鉴于我对该片理性的低期望值,我还是认为赵薇对于自己的导演处女作交上了一份令人满意的答卷。如果没有她那富有洞察力的全心身投入以及观察,我认为该片会更烂。
  
  Just as time wrinkles the skin but enriches the soul, a mediocre film may as well be the best motivation for Zhao to make better ones in the future.
  
  就如同时间会令皮肤苍老却令灵魂充实一般,一部平庸之作也会成为鞭策赵薇在今后制作出佳作的动力。
