【看英文中國郵報學英文】導演鍾孟宏屢獲國內外獎項肯定,睽違3年,他即將於推出第5部新作《陽光普照》,8月14日第44屆多倫多國際影展更公佈《陽光普照》入選「當代電影世界單元」(Contemporary World Cinema),將於影展舉辦世界首映,並與許多知名導演一同角逐觀眾票選獎!

Chung Mong-Hong (鍾孟宏), a Taiwan film director, cinematographer, and screenwriter, is renowned both in Taiwan and internationally for his film productions. After three years, Chung has returned this year with his new film “A Sun” (《陽光普照》). On Aug. 14, the 44th annual Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) announced its Contemporary World Cinema lineup, the list of nominations, includes “A Sun,” which will be premiering at the festival.

《陽光普照》集結影壇新星巫建和、劉冠廷、許光漢,及金獎影后柯淑勤、尹馨、温貞菱與陳以文等實力派演員演出,故事圍繞在一個平凡家庭,因為小兒子犯錯入了少年監獄,讓整個家庭逐漸分崩離析。柯淑勤、陳以文、巫建和與許光漢將一家人的無奈與糾結深刻演繹驚豔四座,而劉冠廷在片中更突破形象演出有別與以往的角色。《陽光普照》除了充滿魅力的黑色幽默之外,這次更顛覆以往風格加入了許多催淚溫情元素,勢必讓影迷耳目一新。

Besides rising stars Wu Chien-Ho (巫建和), Liu Kuan-Ting (劉冠廷) and Hsu Greg Han (許光漢), prominent actors including Ivy Yin (尹馨), Wen Chen-Ling (温貞菱), Chen Yi-Wen (陳以文), and award-winning actress Ke Shu-Qin (柯淑勤), are all part of the cast. The film follows the struggles and helplessness of a family being torn apart when the youngest son is sent to a juvenile detention center. Dark humor gives the film some comical elements, but the storyline and outstanding acting will take the audience on an emotional rollercoaster.

導演鍾孟宏執導作品享譽國際,首部劇情片《停車》便入圍了坎城影展「一種注目」單元,接者第二部劇情電影《第四張畫》不僅讓他奪得金馬獎「最佳導演獎」,更受邀至盧卡諾、多倫多等國際影展。入圍多項金馬獎項的電影《失魂》更跨海參與東京、釜山和多倫多等各項影展,2016年電影《一路順風》也入選多倫多影展。

此次新作《陽光普照》,鍾孟宏表示這部電影的片名就代表了整部片的核心,他說:「這世界上唯一公平的就是陽光,但炙熱的太陽其實沒那麼容易擁抱,你會發現所有人都躲在陰影底下。」隱隱透露出在動人的家庭故事劇情之下,人心的複雜才是電影最大亮點,而眾多實力派演員突破演出也備受期待。《陽光普照》將於10月25日全台上映。

Chung pointed out that the title “A Sun” really grasps the film’s essence. “Sunlight is beautiful and we need it for survival,” he explained, “but under glaring sunlight, you find everyone hiding in the shade instead.” To which Chung hopes the audience notices the shadows of a complicated and less glorified human nature behind the touching family storyline. A Sun will be released on October 25th in Taiwan.
