No.009 《Babel》 通天塔 黑暗杂乱的生活背后还有光明

英文导读

Babel is a 2006 international drama film directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu and written by Guillermo Arriaga, starring an ensemble cast. The multi-narrative drama completes Iñárritu's Death Trilogy, following Amores perros and 21 Grams.

Actress Adriana Barraza, who plays the role of Amelia, is a two-time survivor of minor heart attacks. She nonetheless carried co-actress Elle Fanning around in the hot desert of Southern California during the summer for two days during filming of those particular desert scenes. The whole of the desert scenes were said to have taken five days to shoot.

The film portrays multiple stories taking place in Morocco, Japan, Mexico, and the United States. It was an international co-production among companies based in France, Mexico, and the US. Babel's ultimate $25 million budget came from an array of different sources and investors anchored with Paramount Vantage, which changed its name from Paramount Classics, with Babel as its premiere production and inaugural motion picture.

In the remote sands of the Moroccan desert, a rifle shot rings out—detonating a chain of events that will link an American tourist couple's frantic struggle to survive, two Moroccan boys involved in an accidental crime, a nanny illegally crossing into Mexico with two American children and a Japanese teen rebel whose father is sought by the police in Tokyo. Separated by clashing cultures and sprawling distances, each of these four disparate groups of people are nevertheless hurtling towards a shared destiny of isolation and grief. In the course of just a few days, they will each face the dizzying sensation of becoming profoundly lost—lost in the desert, lost to the world, lost to themselves—as they are pushed to the farthest edges of confusion and fear as well as to the very depths of connection and love.

The film was first screened at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival, and was later shown at the Toronto International Film Festival and the Zagreb Film Festival. It opened in selected cities in the United States on 27 October 2006, and went into wide release on 10 November 2006.

The film's original score and songs were composed and produced by Gustavo Santaolalla.The soundtrack album won the Academy Award for Best Original Score and the BAFTA Award for Best Film Music. It was also nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score (lost to the score of The Painted Veil).

On 15 January 2007, this film won the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture—Drama. It was nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, and two nominations for Best Supporting Actress and won for Best Original Score.

剧情简介

理查德和妻子苏珊去摩洛哥旅行,出游本来是为了挽救婚姻。但是,苏珊却在旅行车里遭遇枪击,为了医治苏珊,整车的游客不得不在摩洛哥的小村滞留。而当地的警方也将此次事件上升为恐怖袭击展开了调查,但事情的结果却让人跌破眼镜。

理查德夫妇由于滞留在摩洛哥,把家里的孩子们拜托给他们的保姆,但是墨西哥籍的保姆为了参加儿子的婚礼,只能让她的侄子开车带着她和孩子们一起去,但是,过境回来的时候,警方怀疑她绑架美国小孩……

日本的聋哑少女千惠子孤寂地生活在无声的世界中,母亲的自杀,使处于青春期的她和父亲的沟通越发困难,她性格越发叛逆。她用自己的方式,和世界沟通交流。

这三个不关联的故事,被安排在一部电影里,表面看上去有点勉强,可是,经过深思熟虑之后,你会发现:无论是在摩洛哥等待救援的美国游客,东京万家灯火中的一对父女,还是北美荒地中惊慌失措的墨西哥保姆,都是人类处于困境中无助的写照。而如今的世界呢?好像人类也在造一座通天塔,今天的通天塔就是全球化,而全球化的通天塔也并非没有代价。

制作花絮

这是伊纳里图与编剧吉勒莫·阿里加继《爱情是狗娘》和《21克》之后的第三次联手,也是当初说好的“三部曲”的终结篇。

布拉德·皮特之所以自降身价出现在这种独立制作中,完全是因为他的角色大部分都在关心家庭和孩子,其实是对他新生女儿西洛的爱的表达。

在摩洛哥拍摄的时候,凯特·布兰切特的小儿子意外被火烧伤,布兰切特迅速带儿子返回英国医治,好在孩子没什么大碍。
