Paris Je'taime| 巴黎,我爱你



身为一名巴黎爱好者,怎能不观赏这部电影呢?

原先,我不知道有这部戏的存在,直到我与他到电影院看到这部电影的海报,一向由他作主选择看什么电影,但这次,我坚持要看这部! 看着海报,我抱着艺术心态去观赏,心想这应该不会是部太商业性的情节吧。 而他就作开口扮打瞌睡状态,我管不了这么多,呵呵!

看了前十分钟,有点懊恼及混淆,因为故事好像穿插得乱七八糟,再看下去后,终于弄清楚原来电影情节里穿插着18个短篇故事。其中, 有一些故事真的很扣人心弦。

“18个故事里,最让我留下深刻印象的,是那个满脑子在想要怎么摆脱那一成不变的妻子,那个只钟爱穿红色外套,每天只做同一道菜,哼同一首歌的女人;另一 边厢,他已情陷于另一位俏丽女郎。正当他鼓起勇气相约妻子到咖啡店提出‘离婚’两字的当儿,妻子突然嚎啕大哭,他被吓倒,以为妻子已洞悉他的动机。谁知, 妻子一手把医药报告递呈给他,证实她患上绝症,只剩下短暂的性命。而他原先的念头仿佛在众人严厉的眼光下,重重的被打消了。

就这样,突然间他感到悲伤,他感到内疚,他感到无奈,他感到罪恶。结果,剩下来的日子,他每一天都陪伴妻子,与她穿一样的红色外套逛街,与她做 同一道菜,听她哼同一首歌,还有与俏丽女人分手。这一刻,他一直以为他是因为要乔装在热恋的成熟男人陪伴妻子过剩下的日子,但原来这一刻,他发现,他并不 是乔装,但是真的有热恋的感觉。
突然之间,他重拾当年与妻子的热恋情感,觉得自己很爱她。可惜,妻子在这个时候幸福的在他陪伴下,睡梦中离开了。”

短短的五分钟故事,让我眼眶积满了泪,我讨厌看电影落泪,纵然我把眼光转离银幕,但泪还是禁不了,落了。

这只是其中一个让我感觉最深的故事,
因为短短的五分钟,它启发我对生命有种看法。
不管我们把生命想的多精彩,有些事情我们还是会每天重复去做,
像是生活步伐,
像是生活习惯,
像是投入同一份工作,
像是与同一个人分享点滴。
没有人能摆脱重复似的枷锁,因为这就是生活,这就是人生。
或者偶尔,我们以为
换个环境,
换份工作,
换个伴侣,
换个心境就会改变一切。
但当这一切被固定化后,我们还是被得定下来,沿着新的路线再适应。
试问,人的一生有几次能让我们寻找每一次的新鲜感?
或许,寻找新刺激不难,但在旧习里自造乐趣是得花心思的。
这就是人的缺点,拥有一切的当儿是感觉不到失去的珍贵;
突然间,我有种害怕失去的感觉。

如有时间,看看这部电影吧;你会发现,镜头仿佛在透视人对爱情的坚持及脆弱,重要的是故事的发展发生在爱的城市,巴黎。
除了以上这个故事,还有一些情节我是不会忘记的,比如说,
单亲妈妈因为生活被得照顾人家小孩而忽略自己小孩的无奈。。。
爱上医生实习生,但连与她喝杯咖啡的机会都没有但死去的打扫工人。。。
那活在黑暗世界却以爱感染到热诚演戏的女演员陷入爱河。。。
还有一幕又一幕父女爱,母子爱,离婚男女的爱,同性恋人的爱,沉默的爱,疯狂的爱,‘范特西’的爱,不切实际的爱,随性的爱,甚至一个人生活的热爱,这些故事你都能在这部戏里,找得到。你现在的爱,属于什么阶段?

整部戏的演绎足足用了两小时,有几部现代戏能交出两小时的素质,这部值回票价。原来,这18个故事是由世界各地不同的18个导演精心泡制的。这么难得的制作,应该给点支持。



As a Paris lover, i have no reason not to watch this movie.

At first, i did not know about this movie, until we went to the cinema lately and saw the beautiful poster, and i insisted we should watch this. When queing up for tics,he yawned and yawned because art film was never his cup of tea. Mind him, it's my turn to make a pick:p I was confused after watching the first 10minutes. I found the stories was messy and as i watched further,only i realised this film combined 18 of short stories.

Among 18 stories, there is one i remember the most. I still clearly have the scenes running in my head. The story goes like this, there is this man who always want to get rid of his wife whom only loves wearing her chili red jacket, making the same dish each day, and humming the same old song. He has fallen in love with another woman.

He has been thinking long to do this, so one day he has finally met his wife at a cafe. As he is about to divorce with his wife, suddenly she cries out loud infront of him. He is shocked, he thought she has probably known everything. At this moment, she hands him over a medical report, and it says she is diagnosed with last stage of cancer and lasts only a few month of life.

At one point, he feels as if the stone falls upon the sky,and the guilt holds him back from saying a word. From the moment on, he is helplessly sad, regret,clueless,and guilty. And he spends every of her remaining days with love. He goes to the market with her wearing the same red jacket, making the same dish with her, and hearing her humming the same song. He breaks up with his lover.

He once thought he is pretending to love this woman whom is now dying, but now he really feels that he is in love with the woman again. Unfortunately, when this comes to his realisation, one day his wife never wake up from sleep anymore.

The 5minute story gives me watery eyes, and i hate it. I hate crying over a movie, no matter how hard i try to look away, i could feel the tears shedding off the cheek.

This is just one of the stories in this movie.
However, it gives me some kind of inspirtation of life.
No matter how hard we try to picture our wonderful life,
life is a repetitive act of each day's effort.
For instance,
having the same job,
having the same habit,
and having the same person to share life with.
Noone seems to get rid of the repetition acts of life;
It's always easily to search for new excitement,
but to create excitement out of routined life, it requires the effort.
Perhaps this is the weakness we see in human,
we probably will not learn to cherish what we have until we once lose it.
At this point, i am afraid to lose..

It's a good movie to spare you free time. Through the stories,you will get to see what love do to human, and more importantly, it all happens in the city of Love, Paris.





年前,曾到巴黎游玩的时候,亲眼看到巴黎铁塔的那一杀那,才知道为什麽人们都爱称巴黎为浪漫之城。那个时候的我,对巴黎一点历史故事都不懂,连搭火车都是在乱闯乱撞的情况下随缘分跟着火车轨道向各站出发。可能在这样的情况下,糊涂的与铁塔沾上一点缘分,看到它的那一刻,防不胜防的,对它一见钟情。或许描述的有点抽象,但感觉本来就是抽象的;如果说的具体一点,雄伟的埃菲尔铁塔本身会散发一种自然催情剂,无定力者,要小心会被它那闪烁的灯光电到,而我就是那毫无定力者,被电到正,所以至今还对它念念不忘。当时,我还天真的想Ms Butterfly说,若有人当场与我求婚,我一定答应。


所以我常说,如有机会,我要再回去,享受浪漫的灯光,与铁塔谈恋爱。我还在期待,与爱人一起上铁塔感受爱的滋味,因为当时的我,把上铁塔的机会保留了,给他.



Years ago, I travelled to Paris. I finally know why people love to call Paris a city of Romance. I was clueless on the background and history of the city, and worse still, i did not even know where the train heading to when i once having a trip with Ms Butterfly. Out of surprise, i was once walking on the street and found Effiel tower was just behind the building without knowing i was actually so close to this amazing tower. The moment i found 'Him', i could feel the chemistry runnning in me, i felt as if a lil girl has found her favorite lollipop, it was sweet. At that time, i was naively whispering to Ms Butterfly" I would marry a man if he proposed to me here, this time"



I always say, i will visit this city again, to have the sparkling moment with my lover. I did not go up the tower when i had a chance,because i want to spend this special moment with him:)
