网上读到有关田中千绘(Tanaka Chie)入围台湾金马奖最佳新演员引争议的新闻让我觉得惊讶。惊讶的是金马奖的设定和规矩是不是有点跟不上脚步?这样的新闻是不是在抄作?看了《海角七号》的人都不会不认同田中千绘在戏里的力量。无论是曾经在别的电影中的任何表演或是戏份,田中千绘在《海角七号》是用中文演出。演出前她来台湾学八个月的中文。但她戏里说中文的精准度,语气,和力量试问有哪些非华人演员能及?就算是华人也有不及的。比如说香港或是新马明星演员,他们的中文都往往让人此步!不是发音不行就是学了很久还是没有进步的迹象。虽然听了不堪入耳,他们电影还不是照样演,唱片还不是照样发,演唱会还不是照样开?

对台湾观众来说田中千绘是新的演员。对台湾电影圈来说田中千绘是新的演员。对说中文的海内外华人和非华人来说田中千绘是新的演员。台湾不缺电影新人,但试问有几个能像田中千绘一样能在短短的时间学会,了解,应用新的语文而且还容入电影的表演?很多从台湾过江到香港发展十多年的电影明星还不是没有学会一口留利的广东话。试问有几个台湾明星能够在八个月的时间学会日文?

 

记得在《海角七号》的一幕,田中千绘崩溃的哭说她在离乡千里的地方被欺负。金马奖别欺负人,台湾人别欺负人,海内外说中文的华人别欺负人。

I read online that the Best New Actor nomination of Tanaka Chie, the lead actress of Cape 7, in the Taiwanese Golden House Film Festival created some controversy because with her previous involvement in Japanese and Hong Kong films, she could not be considered as a new actor. What amaze me is that the criteria of Taiwanese Golden House Film Festival seem to be outdated. Or, I wonder if the news was merely for publicity purposes? For those who have seen Cape 7, the immense power of Tanaka Chie brought to the film, as Tokomo is unquestionable. Regardless of her previous involvement in films outside of Taiwan, in Cape 7, she speaks Mandarin Chinese. Before the film, she arrived in Taiwan to learn Mandarin because she believes her career would be centered in the wider Asia, instead of Japan. So she spent eight months learning Mandarin in Taiwan. The command of Mandarin Chinese Tanaka Chie has shown in the film could not be matched my any non-Chinese actors. Even some Chinese actors have felt shot in commanding the Mandarin, for example, movie stars from Hong Kong.

To Taiwanese audience, Tanaka Chie is a new actor. To Taiwanese movie circle, Tanaka Chie is a new actor. To Mandarin speaking Chinese and oversea Chinese as well as those mandarin speaking non-Chinese, Tanaka Chie is a new actor. Taiwan produces great amount of new actors every year, but how many of them could master a new language in eight months like Tanaka Chie? Many Taiwanese actors who have crossed over to Hong Kong for more than 10 years still failed to master Cantonese. How many Taiwanese actors could master Japanese in eight months?

I remember a scene in Cape 7 when Tanaka Chie cries that she was discriminated in foreign soils. May I remind the Taiwanese Golden House Film Festival not to discriminate? May I remind Taiwanese not to discriminate? Maybe I remind all the Mandarin speaking Chinese and non-Chinese not to discriminate.
