一百萬零一剎那光輝


童星路﹕一時風光長大多坎坷

【明報專訊】童星今天的風光,可以是明天的不幸,在印度尤其如此。談到愛資哈爾和魯比娜,印度精神科醫生帕里克指出,悲劇的根源在於「當一無所有的人,看過富人可擁有什麼後,歧視的感受必然加劇,那最終可導致他們行為出軌。」

1988 年參演獲奧斯卡最佳外語片提名電影《街童》(Salaam Bombay)的其中3名印度童星,21年後一個遇意外、一個染愛滋、一個患肺炎,全都死了。至於主角賽義德(Shafiq Syed),當年他把3萬盧比酬勞存定期,但不久心癢花光,如今在孟買當三輪車司機。

慕克吉(Preeti Mukherjee)演出05年奧斯卡最佳紀錄片《Born Into Brothels》時僅16歲。縱使導演守承諾幫該片的孩子脫貧,但並無改變她的人生。她無法擺脫過去,如今跟其母一樣成了妓女。魯比娜夢想成為寶萊烏著名女演員Preity Zinta,愛資哈爾則夢想成為歌舞片巨星Salman Khan。但1969年以童星成名的拉朱(Master Raju)指出,《一百萬》都是給他們度身訂做的角色,懷疑他們能否適合別的。有兒童藝人經理人說﹕「孩子到這裏都變得貪婪,但並不容易給他們提供工作。大多數,我只能讓他們當日薪100盧比的初級演員。」

正當有人大讚《一百萬零一夜》(Slumdog Millionaire) 如何好看, 亦有「文化人」恨透影片「低智浮淺」, 筆鋒比刀更利. 而有關童星去向的討論, 亦留下一條尾巴: 《一百萬零一夜》兩個童星, 飾演童年Salim的Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail先因疲憊不堪拒絕接受記者訪問, 吃了父親一記巨靈掌, 現正生病; 飾演童年Latika的Rubina Ali 看盡外頭好風光, 回到貧民窟拒絕脫下華衣美服, 嚷著要過美國式生活... 看得令人心酸. Danny Boyle有沒有靠害他們?

即時想起舒琪寫過有關《Pixote》主角Fernando Ramos Da Silva和《中央車站》(Central Station) 小主角Vinicius De Oliveira 的故事. 《中央車站》導演和路達沙里斯 (Walter Salles) 替Vinicius De Oliveira 助學, 如今Vinicius De Oliveira (近照)已是電影學院的學生. 但《Pixote》的Fernando Ramos Da Silva就沒有這樣幸運. 有人在巴西發起「Pixote教育基金計劃」, 協助失學兒童, 以免重蹈《Pixote》的覆轍.

如報導中所講, Priety Zinta和Salman Khan都是Bollywood大明星. 只要出生於演藝世家、雙親是板球運動員或企業家, 要進入Bollywood可能不難, 但Bollywood可以成功製造多少顆星? 又有幾多位可以成為SRK或Aishwarya Rai?

又想起Bollywood息影女星Sridevi. 她自4歲演戲, 少年時走紅於南印度, 後再征服Bollywood, 八十年代紅遍全印度. 不少富有的印度海外僑胞都想娶她做老婆. Sridevi婚後不久便宣佈息影. 她演過二百六十多套電影, 足足有三十年經驗. Sridevi之所以如此搏命演戲, 全因為她是家中經濟支柱, 就像張栢芝養起全家人一樣, 她要負責繼父繼兄弟姐妹的一切生活所需.... 難怪Sridevi泊到碼頭後便來個「大沉睡」.

Dakota Fanning開始成型, 脫離童星身份. 在《CSI》見到年幼的她客串時, 已覺此姝不簡單. 她積極參與演出, 但沒有放棄學業. 《鬼眼》(The Sixth Senses) 的Haley Joel Osment 就尷尬得多. 吃到演藝這行飯, 真的不只靠運氣. 記住: 茱迪科士打好彩有返學! 還有蔡楓華的名句!

同場加映: 童星的另一個下場─《蘭閏驚變》(What Ever Happened To Baby Jane?) 的Bette Davis《I've Written a Letter to Daddy》

娛樂團從來都係博一博啦, 不過能夠有過機會成名總好過冇~ 睇o左《一百萬零一夜》, 無咩驚喜~ 可唔可以話荷里活似乎醒覺其實印度係一個好大o既市場, 應該主動招攬?

Agnes Tse 艾麗絲謝 說...

主動招攬資金就真.

印度本身已經拍到荷里活水準 (Dhoom, Don). Slumdog在他們眼中可能不是東西. (雖然這片是英國出品)

Sonia 說...

同意.

Bollywood本身錢係應該十分充足. 反而"橋"似乎最近有D缺乏, 而家多左人留意, 又唔可以太明目張膽地抄. 如果同外國合作, 當地製作人合資, 都會間接被當成"本地製作". (好像Slumdog Millionaire由拍攝期間開始都不斷有當地傳媒cover.) 實在算得上是互惠互利.

gar~* 說...

呢套戲有印度公司落本拍咩? 我以為全部係英國公司製作? 不過我覺得bollywood o個套唔容易被國外受落, "slumdog"場歌舞都要放到最後啦~

Agnes Tse 艾麗絲謝 說...

Garrick: 這是Bollywood不能"登大雅之堂"的原因. 文化人如林奕華, 澄雨對Bollywood非常不屑. 看Bollywood真的是低級趣味????

有看過"The Guru/性乜差大師"嗎? (TVB播出時改名<"星"夢奇緣>, XP) 男主角是印度人, 卻不愛Bollywood, 反而鍾情Grease的勁歌熱舞.

sonia 說...

看見一班文化人狂數slumdog為低級趣味. 也為其感到不值.....實在是沒有認真研究下作出的'指控'.

任何事情都有兩面. '高級'的事情也可以用很低級的角度去看.

雖然我也算是edward fans之一, 也不太認同他對slumdog的評語.

*btw, u magazine的features出街了. :)

Agnes Tse 艾麗絲謝 說...

Sonia: 見到你了;) 我好樣衰啊 XP

Sonia 說...

Yea, I saw you too!

訪問左40分鐘左右. photographer都影左唔少相, 唔知點解要揀張咁odd.... 真係.... 如果唔係為左Bollywood的話, 真係唔多想出樣:P

同埋佢有少少mistake左我講ge野...

新鮮人 說...

拍電影和扶貧是兩樣東西,
貧窮的人忽然間走進了聲色犬馬之地未必是好事,
帶來的往往是心理上的矛盾和不平衡,
給錢他們,倒不如在"現實中"扶助他們自力更生,
而不是把他們帶進了花花世界啊!

有留意這套,
但還没有看,
所以唔敢畀意見.
但對題材有點印象,
我自己對印度有prconception,
但不知印度又是否如我們以往看到的媒體中那樣貧窮,
貧窮每個國家都有的問題,
但這是印度的獨有的"文化"嗎?
我擔心我們看到的只是經過媒體"過濾"的第三者報導,
是有偏向性和選擇性的,
而不是他們文化的特點或全部!
就是因為這樣才會引起不少印度人對此片產生不好的印象!

gar~* 說...

我猜其中bollywood兩個大問題, 是它經常抄橋, 而且很"以娛樂為本", 所以才會被人看扁~
不過我又覺得, 假如有些"文化人"連劣質爛片也可以借題發揮出社會氛圍, 階級關係, 民族情緒等大道理, 那麼bollywood又不該被批鬥至此~
反正理解方式可以有很多種, 只要文筆夠好, 腐朽也可以寫成神奇~

gar~* 說...

to新鮮人:
我猜, 拍這電影的目標不是旨在扶貧吧?
任何報導都是片面和經過濾的啦, 要一部電影/一篇新聞把整個印度說完, 恐怕是要求過高~ 所以應該多看多讀多聽, 才能從多方面認識啊~ 假如有人看了這電影開始對印度有興趣, 主動研究學習, 也是好事~
話說回來, 我覺得 "slumdog" 又不算很粉飾性啦, 全片都有很多黑暗的東西~
記得先前 danny boyle 拍 "迷幻沙灘" 時好像得過泰國政府/政客的批評, 這部 "slumdog" 得到的反應正面得多 (話晒都贏左奧斯卡...)~
