Song of the Phoenix

《百鸟朝凤》

        陕西一个叫做无双镇的小村落里,吹唢呐这种传之久远的民间艺术,绝不止于娱乐,更具意味的是它在办丧事时是对远行故去者的一种人生评价——道德平庸者只吹两台,中等的吹四台,上等者吹八台,德高望重者才有资格吹“百鸟朝凤”。“百鸟朝凤”这支高难度的曲子,也只有领军的唢呐高手才能胜任。整个无双镇,只有四方闻名的焦家班班主焦三爷能吹“百鸟朝凤”。焦三爷是一位德高望重的唢呐老艺人,他带领徒弟们用执着的热情与坚定的信仰追求和传承唢呐精神。现在焦三爷老了,他急需培养接班人。

        徒弟游天鸣初进焦家班时年幼稚嫩,对焦三爷十分敬畏,虽然心有不甘被父亲“抛弃”在焦家班学艺,但仍有为争家门荣光全力博取师父赞许的信心。能够进入焦家班的学子必须人品端正,忠守唢呐艺人的德行,从骨子里做到“唢呐离口不离手”,为考验两个徒弟是否符合标准,焦三爷这个面冷内热的黑脸师父使尽招数。

        影片表现了在社会变革、民心浮躁的年代里,新老两代唢呐艺人为了信念的坚守所产生的真挚的师徒情、父子情、兄弟情。

        本片改编自肖江虹同名小说。

Song of the Phoenix

In the 1980s, Master Jiaosan headed a suona ensemble, playing the suona at weddings and funerals. The local custom wants that the masterpiece of “Song of Phoenix” could only be played to well-respected persons during their funerals. Jiaosan’s apprentice You Tianming worked very hard and stood out to succeed Master Jiao with the suona ensemble. Jiao and You witnessed a lot of ups and downs in this musical form of suona. When fellow suona players were forced to make a living in the city as unskilled laborers, the ensemble finally broke up. However You Tianming stuck to his promise made to Mater Jiao and committed himself to the traditional art. When Master Jiao passed away, Tianming played “Song of the Phoenix” at his graveside to commemorate the noble and dignified life of Master Jiao.
