重温《阿甘正传》

当这部电影上映十四年后的我渐渐开始成为一个跑步爱好者后,我一直想从一个跑者的角度再次重温此片。说实话,这片子以前不知看过多少遍了,也买过D9收藏。而且《阿甘正传》的伟大、经典也不多我一份赞美了,但如果能从新的角度来重温,不定能有一番趣味,正所谓温故知新——旧知也有新体会。

整部电影年代跨度蛮大,用典极多,很多事件线索很跳跃,作为“老外”的我们未必能看懂所有细节,但“奔跑”这条重要主线却从未中断。“跑”自始至终贯穿此片,贯穿着阿甘的整个生活。

阿甘的奔跑来自 Jenny 的呼喊:Run, Forrest run. 每到紧要关头,这句台词就会在阿甘耳旁响起,每每听到这句话的阿甘就仿佛打开了身上的奔跑开关,凭着阿甘练就的狂奔的本事总能在奔跑中化险为夷转危为安甚至死里逃生。影片后段,当 Jenny 再次悄然离开阿甘时,阿甘再也无法平静了,望着脚下的Nike跑鞋,终于开始了没完没了的奔跑……

为了表现阿甘横贯北美、穿越寒暑,一共用了八个镜头的外景(有几个一直是长镜头,是不是用的替身拍摄就不好说了,呵呵),可以看出导演精心挑选了美国八个景色优美、季节分明、适合长跑的地方取景,到底分别是何圣地,我等土蛋就不得而知了,无图无真相,我专门截取高清影片的片断以飨同好:PiCPiCPiCPiCPiCPiCPiCPiC

非常巧,这两天看了一部讲述候鸟迁徙的高清纪录片《winged migration》,其中有一张候鸟在公路旁休息的场景恰好就是《阿甘》中倒数第二张截图的地方,不知这是美国哪条著名的公路,有何神奇,竟引得人鸟流连。PiC

我IM上某跑友给自己打气的签名是:坚持,最终你会发现一切都有所值。这不就是“傻”阿甘的境遇么?电影中被象征化的阿甘尽管被赋予了运气、成功,但究其根底,真正的原因恐怕乃是“笨笨”阿甘能一直坚持自己所坚持。在现实生活中,我们却未必能像阿甘那样事事成功,样样成就。所以我想修改一下那句签名为:坚持,最终哪怕无所值。阿甘般的坚持——才最可贵。

    阿甘的奔跑来自 Jenny 的呼喊。Run, Forrest run.
    也许这就是生命的意义。

    生生不息,永不止步。

    Run, Forrest run.
    不仅是对阿甘,
    也是对你,
    对我,

    发自内心的呐喊。
