Broken Wings


by Peter Malone,21-7-2003

Broken Wings is a contemporary story set in Israel, in the city of Haifa (the city of the director).

The film opens with a young seventeen-year-old singing a song on the roof of a building near the central railway station. It emerges that she has composed a song, is singing it with her boyfriend. However, all is not easy. When we see her family, she clashes vigorously with her mother. It emerges that her father has died nine months earlier and she blames herself for his being accidentally stung by a bee, being allergic, and not able to withstand the injection. Since then, she has clashed with her mother, her mother being on night shift at the hospital and sleeping during the day. It is September, the opening of the school year, the youngest daughter getting ready to go to kindergarten, the young boy very angry and wanting to break a record by jumping into a dry pool, the oldest boy alienated and dressing up as a mouse, handing out leaflets in the town.

The film focuses on the relationships, the tensions and the various reactions after the death of the father. While the family is middle class, comfortable, and able to sustain itself, it shows itself particularly dysfunctional and unhappy, at times suicidal. The performances are excellent, especially Orli Silbershatz-Banai as the harassed mother. The young Maya Maron is Maya, the alienated daughter who confronts her mother, runs away to record the song she composed for her father but, in grief, is unable to complete it.

The film relates to most First-World people's lives, people with creature comforts, but still with relationships unresolved, seething angers bursting out, and the need for love and affirmation.

 

 

 

 



本片是一個發生在以色列的當代故事,故事背景是海法市(導演的出生地)。

電影一開首我們見到一位十七歲的少女在中央車站附近的一幢樓宇的屋頂上唱歌,原來她創作了一首歌曲,與男友一起唱出來。然而,這一切得來並不容易。當我們看到她的家庭,她跟母親激烈地爭吵。故事逐漸揭露出來:她的父親在九個月前去世,她一直責怪自己令他意外地被密蜂螫傷,出現敏感及抵抗不了藥物注射。自此,她便與母親爭吵。她的母親在醫院當夜班,白天則睡覺休息。現在是九月開學時間,最年幼的女兒準備入讀幼稚園;充滿憤怒的幼子跳進乾的水池,欲打破紀錄;長子與家人較疏離,經常打扮成老鼠模樣,在鎮上派發傳單。

電影焦點放在父親去世後各人物的關係、張力與不同的反應。片中的家庭屬於中產階層,舒服寫意,能夠維持生計,卻沒有發揮正常功能,各人並不快樂,甚至有自殺傾向。眾演員表現非常出色,特別是奧麗西貝莎茲,她飾演煩惱的母親;年輕的瑪雅扮演那個常常與母親對抗的女兒,她離家去灌錄自己編寫給父親的歌曲,卻因悲傷過度,無法完成。

本片與大部份經濟發達的國家的人民生活有關,他們雖然物質生活富裕,人際關係仍舊未能解決,非常激動和氣憤,需要愛和肯定。
