Buddha Mountain

《观音山》

        在四川的小县城里,彷徨着3个充满迷茫的年轻人:远离家庭纷扰的女孩南风、对父亲心怀芥蒂的丁波、以及家庭富裕却得不到半点温暖的肥皂。他们天天聚在一起玩乐喧闹,品味着青春的快意与失落。因所租的房屋改建,他们辗转租住了京剧演员常月琴的房子。这是一个有着坎坷命运的女人,上苍的不公令她与周围的人格格不入,更不要说这几个与之同住一个屋檐下、无论从年龄还是阅历都有着莫大鸿沟的孩子。南风各自的生活中本就烦恼不断,与常月琴更是摩擦重重。然而随着时间的推进,这几个孤独的人儿都从彼此的身上感受到了些微的温暖……

电影短评:

  • 在电影的前半段,导演用极其简短的对白和细节,刻画了人与人彼此的试探、理解彼此的悲痛,相互舔舐疮口,直到最后四个人身处窘境,依然在精神上相互搀扶,令人动容。(新民晚报评)
  • 《观音山》在故事层面留下了许多空白,这些片段式的剧情导致了影片情绪的跳跃和不连贯。它讲述的还是一个宏大而永恒的主题:生死与信仰。只是这个宏大的主题因为电影故事层面的无力而显得有些虚弱,最后只做到了浅尝辄止。(新京报评)

Buddha Mountain

In a small county in Sichuan, there are three young people who were fulfilled wih confusion: Nanfeng, a girl far away from family turmoil, Ding Bo, who has a grudge against her father, and Soap, from a wealthy family but with no family love.
They always get together and play around, savoring the joy and loss of youth. Due to the renovation of their current rented house, they coincidentally rented a house of the Peking Opera actor Chang Yueqin. This is a woman with a rough fate. God’s injustice makes her incompatible with the people around her, not to mention these children who live under the same roof with them, and there is a big gap in age and experience. Nan Feng had constant troubles in their respective lives, and there were even more frictions with Chang Yueqin. However, as time progressed, these lonely people all felt a little warmth with each other…

Movie Review:

  • In the first half of the movie, the director used extremely brief dialogue and details to portray the temptation and understanding of each others grief, until the last four people who were in a dilemma, but still supporting each other mentally. Touching (Xinmin Evening News Review)
  • “Guanyin Mountain” left a lot of gaps in the story. These fragmentary plots caused the film’s emotional jump and incoherence. It is about a grand and eternal theme: life ,death and faith. However this magnificent theme was a bit weak due to the story line of the film, and ended up on the surface. (New Beijing News Review)
