Legend Of The Demon Cat

《妖猫传》


        故事发生在盛唐时期的长安城,白乐天本是朝廷要官,却为了收集写诗的素材而甘愿被贬为起居郎。长安城内连连发生离奇的死亡事件,就连当今圣上也难逃厄运离奇身亡,这一切都和一只神出鬼没的妖猫有关。日本僧人空海本为了替皇帝解咒远渡重洋而来,却和白乐天意气相投,两人决心携手调查案件真相。
  一首如怨如诉的《清平调》表明,妖猫作祟和三十年前倾国倾城的杨贵妃之死有着千丝万缕的关联,追寻着曾经迷恋杨贵妃的阿部仲麻吕所留下的日记,白乐天和空海一同见证了大唐曾经的荣光,亦揭开了当年隐瞒至今的阴谋。

电影短评:


  • 该片在视觉上还是颇为养眼的,通过极乐之宴上虚与实、人与兽并置的极尽奢华作为盛唐的回光返照,以及盛极而衰的不祥之兆。该片无意探讨唐朝是因何而凋零,而是通过一场接一场的幻术中,一次次的自斟自饮中,来阐述凋零原因。从表面上看去,该片是反《长恨歌》的。按影片的叙事,《长恨歌》是不提供真相的,也不可能有什么真正的人情、人性可言。(凤凰娱乐评)

Director Introduction:
Chen Kaige is a Chinese film director and a leading figure of the fifth generation of the Chinese film industry. His films are known for their visual flair and epic storytelling. Chen won the Palme d’Or at 1993 Cannes Film Festival and the International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI) Award in 1993.

Review:
The film is quite eye-catching visually. The virtual and reality in the feast of bliss and the extreme luxury from the co-existence of man and beast serve as a reflection of the prosperity and the sign of the decline of the Tang Dynasty. The film does not intend to explore why the Tang Dynasty withered, but explained the cause of the withering through one illusion after another, pouring and drinking again and again.
