Ang Lee’s Life of Pi Movie

 李安新作《少年PI的奇幻漂流》中英簡介  

少年PI  

以下文章出處:《活用空中美語English 4U 163期》再整理而成

  

Imagine you’re trapped on a lifeboat in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Your family has disappeared, and your only companion is an enormous Bengal tiger…

試著想像你被困在太平洋中的一艘救生艇上。你的家人都不見了,而你唯一的同伴只剩下一頭體型龐大的孟加拉虎

This is the situation facing Pi Patel, the main character in the movie Life of Pi. Pi, the son of a zookeeper, is a teenager from India. His family is traveling to Canada with their zoo. However, tragedy strikes and their ship sinks. Pi becomes the only survivor of his family and has to share a small lifeboat with a Bengal tiger to cross the Pacific Ocean. In order to survive, Pi realizes that he must overcome not only the loss of his family, but his fear of the tiger. Pi has to learn to tame the tiger and claim dominance of the lifeboat during the journey.

這正是電影《少年Pi的奇幻漂流》的主角,也是動物管理員的兒子─派‧帕特爾,一位印度少年所面臨的情形。他的家人和他們的動物園一起旅行到加拿大。然而,悲劇降臨,他們的船沉沒了。派變成了家中唯一的生還者,而且必須和一隻孟加拉虎共享一艘小救生艇以橫渡太平洋。為了生存,派理解到他必須克服的不僅僅是失去家人的傷痛,還有他對老虎的恐懼。派必須學習馴服老虎並在旅途中宣告在救生艇的主導地位。

The movie, directed by Oscar-winner Ang Lee, is based on Yann Martel’s bestselling novel Life of Pi. In addition to being a story of adventure and survival, it raises profound questions about belief in God and in oneself.

這部由李安所執導的電影是根據楊馬泰爾所撰寫的同名暢銷小說改編而成。除了是個冒險和生存的故事外,它也提出關於相信上帝或相信自己的深奧問題。

Life of Pi, though an award-winning novel, has long been considered too difficult to film. In the movie, the two main characters, Pi and the tiger, cannot speak to one another. So the images are supposed to tell the emotional story of the movie, and its actor must be good at interpreting the grief and loneliness that the character goes through.

《少年Pi的奇幻漂流》雖然是本得獎小說,但卻一直被認為不容易被拍成電影。在電影裡,派和老虎兩位主角,無法彼此對話。因此,影像得呈現電影情節中情感的部分,而它的演員必須擅於詮釋角色所經歷的悲傷和孤獨。

 Lee claimed these difficulties were what attracted him to the project, stating “I wanted to be the one to do it.” He finally picked Suraj Sharma, a student from India, to play Pi. Lee said Sharma has “the innocence to capture our attention, the depth of character to break our hearts, and the physicality needed to embody Pi on his journey.” That’s also why Sharma could beat out over 3,000 young men for the lead role.

李安宣稱這些難題正是吸引他承接此案的原因,並說「我想成為那位完成(此部電影拍攝)的人。」他最後挑選一位名叫蘇瑞吉‧沙瑪的印度學生來飾演派。李安說沙瑪擁有「吸引人的純真,其性格的深度足以打動人心,以及旅程中派所需要呈現的體態。」這也是為何沙瑪能夠打敗三千多位年輕人並爭取到主角。

To meet the visual challenges of the movie, Lee filmed in 3D for the first time to capture Martel’s novel in breathtaking fashion. Lee hopes that the movie will move and delight audiences with its artistic vision.

為了迎接電影的視覺挑戰,李安首次運用3D拍攝,以令人驚豔的方式捕捉馬泰爾的小說情節。李安希望透過視覺的藝術美感,這部電影能打動並娛樂觀眾。
