夢斷海邊之城 The Sea Ahead

1h 57m 環球視野 Global Vision 2021

留學巴黎兩年,恩娜突然退學返回貝魯特,卻發現成長之地變得如此陌生。老家的陽台已看不見海洋,新建的高樓大廈十室九空。與父母心生隔閡,與男友既親且疏,自己亦不知何去何從;找不着過去與未來,憂鬱落寞難以言喻,彷彿與城市的灰冷頹敝互為表裏,在幻夢的混濁海洋裏載浮載沉。黎巴嫩導演伊利達格首部長片,拍於貝魯特港口大爆炸之前,淒美鏡頭捕捉存在焦慮,少女與城市同樣了無生氣如同鬼魅,有若預視了貝魯特在腐朽政權下走向毀滅的命運。

Abruptly quitting her university degree in Paris, Jana returns home to Beirut to find a city she no longer recognises. The urban landscape encapsulates an overwhelming hollowness that synchronises with the unshakable melancholy of her displaced soul. Ely Dagher’s directorial feature debut, filmed before the explosion at Beirut’s harbour, is a mournfully beautiful portrait of the psyche of the city and its people, that almost feels like an eerie premonition of the political and physical devastation prevailing in Lebanon.
