【看英文中國郵報學英文】影劇串流平台Netflix將推出首部華語原創懸疑犯罪影集《罪夢者》,由賈靜雯、張孝全領銜主演,故事題材取自於真實社會案件,劇中探討廢死議題以及亞洲社會的現實與矛盾,首集將在10月31日於Netflix正式上線。

Netflix will launch its first Mandarine-language original series, “Nowhere Man,” starring Taiwan actress Alyssa Chia and actor Joseph Chang. The thriller, which is based on a true story, centers on issues such as capital punishment and other contradictions in Asia society. Netflix will start broadcasting the series on Oct. 31.

本劇卡司還包括范曉萱、王柏傑、劉子千、周洺甫、許光漢等人。劇情講述由張孝全飾演的死刑犯在等待死刑的過程中進入一個神秘空間,在他策劃逃出的過程中深陷更危險的陰謀之中。

The series also features various Taiwan singers and actors including Mavis Fan, Wang Bo-chieh, Jeremy Liu, Zhou Ming-fu, Hsu Greg-han. The story begins with a prisoner on death row, played by Chang, who enters a mysterious space while waiting for his execution. Chang is trying to escape from the prison, but he eventually finds himself in an even more dangerous scheme. 

這部劇2017年時原片名叫做《擺渡身》,由馬來西亞籍導演柯汶利執導,然而後來因為導演個人因素無法繼續執導,交由陳映蓉導演接棒,重新改編劇本以及演員陣容,改名為《罪夢者》,共八集每集60分鐘。

In 2017 the series was called “bardo” by Malaysian director Sam Quah. Yet, due to Quah’s personal reasons, the filming was taken over by Taiwanese director Chen Yin-jung who rewrote the script and changed the cast. “Nowhere Man” includes eight episodes, each of them lasting 60 minutes.
