P&P movie


最近因为看 Little Dorrit 的缘故,对 Matthew Macfadyen 稍微有点 crush,顺手找了电影版傲慢与偏见来看。结果看了一点儿就吃不消关掉了。真是不知所谓,一定是直男导演的,整个味道都是错的,好象加了酱油的巧克力蛋糕。我不是奥斯丁迷,她的小说里除了 Persuasion 以外都没什么感觉,太说教,太精明算计,正负黑白褒贬太明显。即使如此,也不应该这么被糟蹋呀,还不如干脆改编成现代小明星的校园片儿算了。Macfadyen 本来演技非常好,在年轻一代男演员里属于罕见的功底,但是在这片儿里从头到尾苦着脸没有变化,让人错以为他是 Ben Affleck。Keira Knightly 我一直都不太喜欢,瘦精精的大扁脸,说话舌头总是有点儿卷着,让我不舒服。她的形象和举止都非常现代,应该全拍现代剧才对,拍什么古装片,感觉非常游离。
My problem with Jane Austen novels is her cool distance held at all times between the reader and the author. She is sitting high on the mountain top, handing down wisdom and role models of perfect female conduct and drawing maps to life-long happiness for inexperienced girls. It doesn't work for me. I would rather read about characters who always get things wrong, mess their lives up, and consumed by their human frailties.

Austen那时代大概不流行写错误的人生 - 胡乱猜一猜。她小说里的romance不能算romance,还是那些配角写得精彩。

哎我真的很讨厌Keira Knightly。

我对她这个人没有任何反感,但是她的表演和说话,以及长相,都是让我不舒服的类型。

I think the problem is her dictation. It drives me up the wall.

McFadyen was in Death at a Funeral. Highly recommend this comedy, ROFLMAO.

同讨厌Keira Knightly。

Oh, oh, good reminder. I will certainly watch Death at a Funeral. I remember intending to watch it when it came out because the trailer is hilarious and because the director is Miss Piggy himself, Frank Oz -- who is both English and American. But then I forgot about it.

Frank Oz is not only Miss Piggy but also Master Yoda!!!! My favorite character in Star Wars.
