可愛老女人 / Mrs. Henderson Presents

她決定在Soho 區開一家叫風車的劇院,上演倫敦首創的裸女歌舞秀Revudeville !

這是一部改編自真人真事的電影。電影外的Mrs. Henderson 敢說敢做,寧願喝墨水也不願繡花,對於英國上流社會的性道德嗤之以鼻,以她在政界的私人關係保護裸女秀不受檢查制度騷擾。

電影裡飾演Henderson  的Judie Dench 則是我最喜歡的演員( 因為 Emma Thompson這幾年都不演好電影了) ,而Henderson這個角色也最接近她在BBC 影集裡擅演的可愛老女人:通透而開放,成熟而不事故,對世界永保著一種從容的好奇。看著電影裡外的Mrs. Henderson,我覺得能變老真是一件了不得的好事!

電影中最感人是一段以 Jerome Kern 的歌曲 All the things you are 為主的抒情片段。我以前聽的都是Ella Fitzgerald 熱鬧的大樂隊編制版,不意聽見鋼琴與乾淨的男聲唱出熟悉的曲調,與影像一起訴說一段青春熾戀的開始與結束,穿插對照著Mrs. Henderson 在梳妝台前盛裝自娛的鏡象。青春與老邁,愛情的盛開與無可迴避的孤獨,這些永恆的生命課題就在那片刻裡與鏡像、音符一起迴旋往覆...



All the Things You Are

(Verse)
Time and again I've longed for adventure,
Something to make my heart beat the faster.
What did I long for? I never really knew.
Finding your love I've found my adventure,
Touching your hand, my heart beats the faster,
All that I want in all of this world is you.

(Chorus)
You are the promised kiss of springtime
That makes the lonely winter seem long.
You are the breathless hush of evening
That trembles on the brink of a lovely song.
You are the angel glow that lights a star,
The dearest things I know are what you are.
Some day my happy arms will hold you,
And some day I'll know that moment divine,
When all the things you are, are mine!
