影片介紹

聰穎幽默的高校男孩吉翁,對最要好的朋友動了情。青春洋溢的女大生夏綠蒂甩掉男友,流連於感官刺激裡驗證愛情。靦腆男孩菲力克斯則在夏令營與甜美女孩一見鍾情。三段故事在青澀和迷惘的青春裡浮沉,在親密友誼關係中探索性向與自我認同,在不確定的關係裏期許愛情與追逐慾望,最終倒轉至初戀伊甸園裡種下的純愛與希望。

菲利浦・勒薩吉將故事的終尾調到青春期之前,確立童年的消逝與遠去,在情節裡添入沙林傑的小說《麥田捕手》和《法蘭妮與卓依》,充盈了青年角色內在的複雜情緒,也描繪出孤獨與挫敗的視野。本作是導演繼《惡魔》後的第二部自傳色彩之作。

Guillaume and Charlotte, teenage half-siblings are simultaneously struggling with romance; Charlotte is in a relationship with Maxime, but is reeling from his proposal that they change to an open relationship, while Guillaume is a student at an all-boys boarding school who is developing a romantic and sexual attraction to his classmate Nicolas. These teenagers are shaken up by their first loves in the turmoil of their youth. At a time when others are conforming, they stand their ground and assert their right to love and to being free.Genesis (2018) is in the annual year-end Canada's Top Ten list at The Toronto International Film Festival.

導演介紹

菲利浦.勒薩吉,1973年出生於加拿大魁北克,完成蒙特婁麥基爾大學文學與丹麥歐洲電影學院電影的學士學位後,以記錄社會學家阿蘭.圖賴訥為主題,並與其著作同名的紀錄片《Can We Live Together?》(2006)展開他的執導生涯。將紀錄片手法體現於劇情片,勒薩吉擅長運用鏡頭的流動呈現人物的眼神、表情與神態,捕捉瑣碎的對話,如詩的敍事與混融其中的音樂,留予觀眾大量自我解讀的空間,輕靈地振出青春與生命本是多磨的共鳴。

Philippe Lesage (born in 1973) is a Canadian director and screenwriter from Québec, Canada. He studied at McGill University and the European Film College in Denmark and began his career as a documentary filmmaker. He directed his first feature film in 2006, “Can We Live Together?”, a documentary about the sociologist Alain Touraine and the Parisian suburb crisis. From 2008 to 2009, he returned to the European Film College to teach documentary. By embodying the documentary concept in drama, Lesage specializes in representing the expressions of the characters with the flow of the lens, and captures trivial dialogues in order to bring out poetic narratives along side a beautiful touch of music. He leaves a lot of space for the audience’s own self-interpretation and lightly resonates themes of youth and life.

導演的話

身為一個紀錄片導演的背景導引我進入各種不同的世界--巴黎郊區、蒙特婁的醫院、鄉下的年輕人,而虛構的劇情片作品則使人自我反思。

《少年初長成》裡,我深入了先前自《哥本哈根愛情故事》與《惡魔》開始的自傳性手法。《惡魔》探討的是我的童年,《少年初長成》則描繪了我的青少年成長過影,我的電影一直是一種尋找真理與真實性的挑戰。我想要拋棄傳統敍事:製作呼應虛構劇情的紀錄片與取材自紀錄片之真實的劇情片。以自己的生活為電影素材相當冒險——在自己面前立起了一面鏡子,可能會使你無法看到自己以外的事物。我不追求「表達自己」,而是尋覓到最後,能得以表述這個世界。

從自身的經歷出發,無庸置疑地,得更細膩去描繪所有人的經歷、所有人的背景脈絡。《少年初長成》是對於愛的欲望之形生、我們對愛與被愛的需求,以及慾望的力量;也關於社會如何干預、監視甚至懲罰我們熱情又強烈的衝動。我電影裡的角色展現了用力地生活、去愛人以及恣意作夢的權利。他們還太年輕,無法保護自己、無法撤退、無法放棄。到頭來,青春的美麗之處在於它永遠不會讓你失望—青春即是未來。

My background as a documentary filmmaker plunged me into different worlds (the Parisian suburbs, a Montreal hospital, teenagers in the countryside). Fiction brought me back to introspection.

With GENESIS I deepen the autobiographical approach I began with COPENHAGEN A LOVE STORY and THE DEMONS. Whereas THE DEMONS deals with in my childhood, GENESIS portays my teenage years. My cinema is always about a quest for truth and authenticity.

I want to spurn convention: to make documentaries that echo fiction and fiction that borrows from documentary. Using your own life as the raw material for making a film is risky. Holding up a mirror in front of you risks inhibiting you from seeing beyond yourself. I don't seek to "express myself"; instead I seek, when it all comes together, to express the world.

Starting with my experience, certainly, but to better portray what we all experience, where we all come from. GENESIS is about the birth of desire for love, our need to love, to be loved, the power of desire, and about how society intervenes, monitors, even punishes our passionate impulses. My characters demand the right to live, to love, and to dream passionately. They are too young to protect themselves, to retreat, to give up. In the end, the beauty of youth is that it can never disappoint: it's the future.
