竹劍少年 Kendo Kids

張毅 CHANG Yi │ 臺灣 Taiwan │ 1983 │ DCP │ Colour │ 105min

 

★1984 第21屆金馬獎最佳錄音提名

 

少年麥子,景仰著長年旅美的父親,但對於母親結交新男友感到忿忿不平;無心向學的珊妮,嚮往著乘船出國、離開家鄉;自稱四處遊歷的船員阿丁,因輪船歲修暫留港區。少年們學習竹劍為求防身自保,但一場以竹劍求正義的大亂鬥,卻引來警方關照。事過境遷,麥子終因得知真相而恍然醒悟。

 

「青春成長」是新電影運動關注的議題之一,本片是導演張毅初試啼聲的劇情長片,與小野共同編劇,以基隆港都為背景,描述少年成長故事。劇中少年每日強迫式的腳踏車訓練與自我要求,如同導演對於美感與生命情懷拚盡全力,追求極致的表現。小野回憶本片,張毅當時不顧上層反對,堅持啟用李屏賓掌鏡。「竹劍是永不退縮的制裁力量」——電影海報上如此呼告,竹劍是少年們的信仰,得以除惡制暴,但一如大多數的成長故事,懵懂單純的年少只能看見冰山一角,當殘酷的事實被揭開之後,瞬間跌進成人世界,被迫長大。

 

★1984 Nomination for Best Sound Recording, Golden Horse Awards

 

Teenager Mai-zih, who respects his father living in the US, is annoyed by the fact that his mother seems to have a new boyfriend. Sunny, a girl with no interest in school, dreams about leaving her hometown for living abroad. Ah-Ding, a self-proclaimed sailor traveling around the world, stays at the harbor area during the maintenance of his ship. A group of teenagers study kendo to defend themselves. Later on, they use bamboo swords to launch a fierce fight for justice, which draws the attention of the police. When the dust settles, Mai-zih realizes that the reality is quite different from what he thought in the past.

 

The coming-of-age story is a major subject matter in Taiwan New Cinema. Kendo Kids is the feature film directed by CHANG Yi in his early stage. CHANG wrote the screenplay with novelist Hsiao Yeh; they tell this coming-of-age story against the backdrop of Keelung Harbor. The way that teenagers in the film train themselves is as hard as the director’s dedication to life and beauty, pushing extreme performance amid their goals. Hsiao Yeh recalls what happened during the production; CHANG insisted on having Mark LI Ping-bin as the cinematographer despite facing disagreement from the boss. “Bamboo swords is a bold and fearless force for punishment,” shows on the film poster. The teenagers believe in kendo with which they can get rid of the villains. However, these unsophisticated teenagers only know the tip of the iceberg. They are forced to grow up when they are confronted with the brutal truth, just as the way most bildungsroman describe protagonists’ development.
