影片介紹

2027 年,巴西政教合一,教會傳播福音變成一場場徹夜狂歡的派對,如果此時耶穌再臨,世人是否已作好準備?喬安娜任職離婚公證人,見盡失合夫妻,亦暗自協助他們破鏡重圓。她渴望生小孩,但丈夫不育,只能沉溺宗教力量下的集體性愛輔導,以獲得神諭。以《八月風》及《霓虹公路》嶄露頭角的蓋布瑞爾・馬斯卡洛再次帶來野性男女的性愛,鏡頭在性感之餘更添挑釁,諷刺盲目崇神的膚淺與偽善。

導演的話

巴西一直以來都被譽為一個自由與團結的國家,每年舉辦的嘉年華盛會更呈現著這國家的多元與熱情。但過去這幾年來,強大保守勢力主導之下的一種文化、社會與政治面向的轉型,在媒體的大力支持與渲染後,已在巴西佔有不可忽視的一席之地。《聖愛啟示錄》的背景設定於2027年,一個大多數人口信奉福音教會卻仍宣稱自己是非宗教型的國家。這部電影透過一個奇特的寓言故事推測著不遠的未來,當今社會顯現前所未有的強烈徵兆,預示著電影裡的未來將成為現實。


比起講述一個角色對抗保守化風潮的故事,我更想要採取反其道而行的手法來挑戰自己。我對於創造與自己抱持不同價值觀的角色,覺得非常引人入勝,因為我相信在我們截然不同的分歧之間,可以發現一些開口或裂隙,並從中找到將我們重新連結起來的機會。我想製作一部具有人性的電影,使我與以往自己會拒絕的角色更加親近。如果社會的鴻溝是由憎恨與誤會而生,電影就是我們得以幻想那近乎不可能交集的空間。

《聖愛啟示錄》是個一般故事,描繪一個女性躍動的慾望,信仰是她生命的基石,她一生等候與尋找聖啟的到來,最終得到的卻是更重大的徵兆;使她進而質疑一切,抑或是讓她更接近神祇。這不僅是一個關於巴西的電影,《聖愛啟示錄》是對全世界正蔓延的保守、盲從及民族主義議題所提出的評論,以及那些非擁護者參與這些議題的方式。

Brazil has traditionally been referred to as a liberal and united country, where the annual Carnaval celebrations espouse the country’s diversity and cordiality. But the fact is that during the past few years, a cultural, social and political transformation led by powerful, ultra-conservative forces, with substantial support from media outlets, has taken hold in the country. The film takes place in 2027 when the majority of the population is Evangelical, but the state still claims to be secular. It is a film that speculates the near future through an extraordinary allegory, despite the present day displaying ever stronger signs of this reality.

Instead of telling the story of a character fighting against this conservative shift - a strategy that would have been easier for me, perhaps - I wanted to challenge myself to do the opposite, to tell the story of a woman consumed by a desire to radically advance the conservative religious agenda in a very personal way. I am interested in creating characters that have different values to my own as I believe that within the differences that separate us you can find openings, fissures, that provide opportunities to connect us. I wanted to make a humane movie, as a means of bringing me closer to a character who a priori I would reject. If a societal chasm has emerged as a result of hatred and misunderstanding, cinema is a space where we can fantasize improbable encounters.

DIVINE LOVE is a universal story about the pulsating desire of a woman whose faith is the cornerstone of her life, who waits and searches for a divine sign, and ends up receiving a greater sign than she was prepared for that will either lead her to question everything or bring her even closer to God. This is not a film only about Brazil, DIVINE LOVE is a commentary on the conservative, fanatical and nationalist agenda that is spreading throughout the world and the way those that don’t espouse it, engage with it.
