About a Boy


好鐘意「About a Boy」,編劇Peter Hedges係我三大編劇偶像其中一位,作品唔算多,但部部佳作!「what's eating Gilbert Grape」

Dicarpio 至今最佳演出,我覺得佢呢世都演唔番!一個小鎮故事,淡淡哀愁,Peter Hedges個世界d人物既怪旦又人性,果個三百磅阿媽,白痴弟弟,主角又同有夫之婦有染,最後把屋燒毀,這段成長記憶跟本不堪回想!還有Juliette lewis! Where are you now?


Peter Hedges第一次做埋導演,用超低成本拍左呢部「Pieces of April」,果時仲未係tom cruise老婆的katie holmes做女主角,又係呢世都演唔番角色,用一班咁怪人物黎講親情,我流眼淚,除左因為感動,還有因為對Peter Hedges的仰慕而產生的驚惶所至!
講番「About a Boy」,改篇自NIck Hornby同名小涗,男主角hugh grant做一個唔駛做,老豆淨落大把俾佢有錢仔,皆因佢老豆作過一隻聖旦歌,年年實會播,佢淨係收版稅已經可以渣AUDI,住靚屋!其他節目梗係媾女啦!佢尃媾失婚婦人,佢覺得係最易入手,我覺得係媾到無得好媾,玩到無得好玩所至!然後佢同一個來自好差家庭環境小孩溫馨感人故事!好利害!成部戲講出黎好似無乜野,睇到ending你會叫左出黎「好!」
世界上真係有好多hugh grand呢個角色有錢仔,可能家族生意,已經有大把錢,而家最緊要守到,唔好俾人敗左佢,所以set 個基金,每月俾幾十萬佢駛,但唔好出去做野!搞生意更加無可能,錢敗唔晒都怕你敗壞家聲,呢班人每日起身就係諗今日點過,除左電台,電視台之外,佢地都算最需要諗「節目」人!
聽過有次一個有錢仔抱怨另一個曾通人朋友遲來到他的派對!朋友回應一句「喂!我要做架!」,有錢仔竟然哭起來「你好命!你每日有工番,唔駛諗做咩!」
做有錢仔做到咁慘,我成日覺得係個天懲罰佢!不過我都覺得自己好多業,點解你唔懲罰下我呀!天呀!

I very much agreed with U that "Gilbert Grape" is the BEST movie by ar Leon-ar-do lor... I watched "Aviator" dvd last nite, it says "5 academy award winner"... I was absoutly ~whole head fog~~~ -_-'

I'm in London, but I do sometimes listen to your "tar tar tar" hehhe... coz a friend gave me her 903 password.

我都鐘意睇"About a Boy" and "What's eating Gilbert Grape",兩個都是不屬主流的故事,不算很激情,但卻很溫馨很入心。

Dicarpio真的做得好好,他用一個很純淨的心去演繹那個角色。我比較喜愛佢早期的作品,很自然很清新。


就算有錢都要由自己親手賺先滿足。

Uncle Beach,
I watched "what eating Gilbert Grape" is so good because each individual character they have their own story. Please recommend more good films for us.
All the best

灘叔~ nick hornby d小說都好好睇! 佢寫到個男主角 (huge grant) 先係一個boy, 佢0係個0靚仔身上學習到點樣負責任.. 佢差唔多本本書都被改編成電影, 新果本書個版權仲比johnny depp買左!

Hello, it's me again. I have write to you two times only.
"Gilbert Grape" let me know Dicapio, and also more well know Johnny Depp. Both of this two guys let me think how the world not so fair. They are good actor, handsome and even they have some "氣質" not so find on other Hollywood actor. For "Gilbert Grape", now it is not shown on "TVB PERAL" a long long time, hoping they will broadcast again. Even Johnny Depp "Scissors Man"
when Pearl broadcast, I will definitely sit right in front of TV. Sorry I say too much, but I hope to say more about my Hollywood favourite actor, "Tom Hanks". Talk you later.
Keep on your radio work !!!!

這三套電影我都有睇,但無留意到幕後人名字。同道中人的你看的角度果然不同。
我都好驚訝Dicarpio演繹得出神入化,不能想信他不是retarded。
更難以置信的是當Katie Holmes出現在Tom Cruise身邊時,會聯想到她是Piesces of April的女主角。我看這套戲時都好受感動的。

較喜歡Dicapio早期的作品,"What's eating Gilbert Grape","This Boy’s Life"仲有"The Basketball Diaries"都令人印象深刻

我剩係睇過不一樣的天空,已經係小朋友既時候睇架la~好耐lur~但係印象好深. 我曾經好迷lee部movie,不過我已經吾記得個內容.間吾中會閃過一d片段,dicaprio響地牢,同埋佢地媽咪過左身無人搬得郁佢索性燒左間屋. 最記得我當年以為佢地搵左個識演戲既弱能人仕來做,真係好出色.
除左basketball diary外,dicaprio仲有一套我好鍾意既,叫做marvin's room,灘,你有無睇過呀,可吾可以話我知中文名係咩?因為我點都諗吾起呀!

About A Boy is a really good film. There are so much to think about during the movie. And even been watching for so many times, I am still learning from it.

Pieces of April 真係好感動,
最尾o個幾個畫面,好觸動我。

不過如果講最令我感動同震撼既,
有一套俄羅斯電影叫《the return》,
睇完個心好痛,電影既每一幕畫面都令我好難忘,
但奇怪係喊唔出。有機會你都睇下丫!
