 天伦之旅 - Iris Lee - Iris的彩虹世界

        故事讲述的是一个退休的老爸爸,在妻子去世后,他最大心愿就是四个儿女团聚,一家人坐在一大张桌子前,一起吃顿饭。可就是这样一个简单的愿望,实现起来却并不容易。四个孩子分别打来电话,以各种理由推掉了周末的聚会。于是这位老人,决定亲自去探望多年未见的孩子们,给孩子们一个大大的惊喜。

        四个孩子分别住在不同的城市,对于一个有着严重肺病的老人来说,这样的长途旅行并不是件容易的事情:弄错时差,遭遇抢劫……但是他还是按照计划走下去。子女们见到他表面上都很欢迎,可都不愿意让他多留几天。爸仔细观察着每个孩子的生活,在他们极力编造的white lie里还是发现了问题:

        大女儿事业有成,看似幸福的背后,是婚姻的破裂;

        小女儿可爱漂亮,喜欢跳舞的她得到了拍电影的机会,如果再有一个男朋友,那么她的生活就“完美”了。可她所栖身的宽敞明亮的大公寓却并不属于她,而且她是“蕾丝边”;

        大儿子算是个画家,可他的画并不好卖。因为吸食过量的毒品,离开了人世;

        一直以为小儿子是个指挥家,可真的去看了他的表演才知道,他是打鼓的。

        因为爸爸从小就对他们期望太高,所以他们不敢把这些“bad news”告诉他,而他们的妈妈在世的时候,这些事情她都知道。虽然当他们还是孩子的时候,老人对他们的确有很高的期望,可当他们现在都长大成人,老人只希望他们能过得happy。

        片子充满了温情和感动。老人用来给每个孩子拍照的老式胶片相机;大儿子那副以“电线杆”为素材的画(他爸爸是做电线防水涂层的工人);老人在妻子墓前的话;都让我忍不住落泪。

        我觉得老人的四个儿女其实过得挺好的,除了大儿子过早地离去,其他三个儿女在千千万万受苦大众中真的算很不错的了。生活本来就有太多的不如意,只要我们还热爱生活,还肯为生活而努力,那我们就应该是幸福的!

        回到家中,在妻子的墓前,老人跟妻子说了这样一番话:Well,it was a big trip. And if you ask me what I learned, I'd have to tell you I am not sure. I know if I could do it all over again, I would ask less of the kids. As loog as they were happy, they would be fine with me. I know I have to stop thinking of them as if they are still children. I can't tell them what to do any more. They have to find their own way. And sometimes, you talked to me about things that I shoud have listened to you more carefully. You presented my with the details of our children's lives, and I ignored them. And for that……But that isn't what you want to here, I know. What you want is the news. Well, the news is this. Robert, Amy, and Rosie promised to visit me for the holidays, and you know what? This time I believe them. And David, I hope he's spend Christmas with you.言语中流露出对教育、对家庭的感悟,充满了对子女和妻子的爱。

        最后,老人终于实现了自己的愿望,和儿女们相聚在圣诞节,一起布置房子、一起烤火鸡,一起坐在一张大桌子前吃饭。

        我从小到大都是在父母、尤其是母亲严格的管教和束缚中成长的,直到今天,老妈也没明白:我长大了,可以选择自己的生活了。也许她心里是明白的,只是她总想以她的观念来指导和要求我的生活。将来我可不能这样对晴朗,我会让晴朗自由发展的,只要他走的是正道,我会放手的。天伦之旅 - Iris Lee - Iris的彩虹世界

PS:影片开头的插曲很好听。是一首很老的歌曲——Perry Como的 《Catch a Falling Star》。据说《公主日记1》里面也有这首歌,那电影我看了3遍,怎么就没注意呢?

    Catch a falling star an' put it in your pocket,
    Never let it fade away!
    Catch a falling star an' put it in your pocket,
    Save it for a rainy day!

    For love may come an' tap you on the shoulder,
    Some star-less night!
    Just in case you feel you wanna' hold her,
    You'll have a pocketful of starlight!

    Catch a falling star an'put it in your pocket,
    Never let it fade away!
    Catch a falling star an' put it in your pocket,
    Save it for a rainy day!

    For love may come and tap you on the shoulder,
    Some star-less night!
    An' just in case you feel you wanta' hold her,
    You'll have a pocketful of starlight!

    Catch a falling star an'  put it in your pocket,
    Never let it fade away!
    Catch a falling star an'  put it in your pocket,
    Save it for a rainy day!

    For when your troubles startn' multiplyin',
    An' they just might!
    It's easy to forget them without tryin',
    With just a pocketful of starlight!

    Catch a falling star an' put it in your pocket,
    Never let it fade away!
    Catch a falling star an' put it in your pocket,
    Save it for a rainy day!
