Thank you for the music─MAMMA MIA

這幾天不斷在音樂圍繞下,mp3裡除了COLDPLAY就是ABBA

即使作為音樂劇電影,〈MAMMA MIA〉不如我預期中精采,但蔚藍海岸的愛情喜劇,再加以歌聲滿盈,仍值得推薦,給愛音樂的人,給喜歡ABBA的人。

 

故事描述一對住在希臘小島上的美麗母女DonnaSophie,女兒從小就想知道自己的父親是誰,即將結婚的她更希望父親帶她走過紅毯,於是她偷看了母親的日記,並寫信邀請SamBill以及Harry三人前來參加婚禮。 

情節簡單,人物也沒什麼過多的情緒轉折,重點在ABBA的音樂,詮釋到位,這齣戲才有生命。

Meryl Streep表現得可圈可點,雖然一開始演員們誇張的表演方式驚嚇了我,但漸漸地就融入那過度歡樂的氣氛中。整場最愛的歌曲是她在那山頭,既無奈又不捨的傾訴「The Winner Take it All」,真正是還君明珠雙淚垂,相見爭如不見!!〈如果鏡頭不要跟得像在拍MTV的話就更好了〉

最感動我的情節是她和Amanda Seyfried母女情深的合唱「Slipping Through My Fingers」,出嫁前,媽媽為女兒梳妝打扮那樣細膩而綿密的情緒,母女之間依依不捨的心情,讓我想起媽媽,想起媽媽對我的疼惜和支持……

Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture, And save it from the funny tricks of time, Slipping through my fingers…」留不住的時光,留不住的畫面,我明白Sophie希望父親參加婚禮的心情,一如妹妹結婚時特別想念爸爸,只是想到媽媽因為我不安而煩惱,因為我哭泣而落淚,就覺得萬萬不該,就覺得萬萬不捨……

劇情另外一個動人之處,就是女人間手帕交的情誼,尤其是當Meryl Streep見到三個前男友內心受到刺激,哭著躲到洗手間時,兩位好友用盡方法試圖安慰她,然後從房內一邊高歌「Dancing Queen」,一邊喚醒女性自主意識,一路唱到海裡……讓我不由自主地想起和我蓋棉被聊天、聊到不支睡著的閨中密友。因為時空,因為個性,因為種種理由,問候總是很少,即使如此,我始終相信「關切是問/而有時/關切是不問/倘若一無消息/如沉船後/靜靜的海面/其實也是/靜靜的/記得」。

或許,我們每一個人都有一個夢想,所以故事從「I have a dream」開始,也結束在「I have a dream」〈不知怎的,每次寫這句話,我就想接下去背Martin Luther King的演講稿……>”<〉,最後還來個充滿音樂劇形式的謝幕,也算是歡喜收場了!!只可惜「Thank you for the music」這麼好的歌曲竟然沒放在劇情裡面,連原聲帶都和「I have a dream」放成一曲,真是無言以對啊!!

讓我頗覺傷感的是,Colin Firth,我心目中的Mr. Darcy,歌聲依舊,當日溫文儒雅的形象現在已變化太大,真是歲月不饒人啊!!

 

Slipping Through My Fingers

Schoolbag in hand, she leaves home in the early morning
Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile
I watch her go with a surge of that well-known sadness
And I have to sit down for a while
The feeling that Im losing her forever
And without really entering her world
Im glad whenever I can share her laughter
That funny little girl

Slipping through my fingers all the time
I try to capture every minute
The feeling in it
Slipping through my fingers all the time
Do I really see whats in her mind
Each time I think Im close to knowing
She keeps on growing
Slipping through my fingers all the time

Sleep in our eyes, her and me at the breakfast table
Barely awake, I let precious time go by
Then when shes gone theres that odd melancholy feeling
And a sense of guilt I cant deny

What happened to the wonderful adventures
The places I had planned for us to go
(slipping through my fingers all the time)
Well, some of that we did but most we didnt
And why I just dont know

Slipping through my fingers all the time
I try to capture every minute
The feeling in it
Slipping through my fingers all the time
Do I really see whats in her mind
Each time I think Im close to knowing
She keeps on growing
Slipping through my fingers all the time

Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture
And save it from the funny tricks of time
Slipping through my fingers…

Slipping through my fingers all the time

Schoolbag in hand she leaves home in the early morning
Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile…
