故事以2001年的上海为背景,几个来自破碎家庭的20出头的孩子和一个离婚妈妈为对象。没有固定工作和收入的他们流离颠沛,受过创伤的脆弱心灵令他们过早的对生活失去希望。展示几个迷惘青年的动荡生活和他们面临着的个人成长过程中的环境和心灵危机。他们被接踵而至的问题如药物,性取向,艾滋病,色情网站等问题困扰,又在彼此依赖中获取安慰。他们的困惑,徘徊,发泄,恐惧,与城市巨大的幻变身影交织,狂野,迷离。

 

Bei Bei is a young Shanghainese man, a former ballet star, who has had a fever for the better part of a month. He has red spots all over his body and feels run down. Worried that he has contracted HIV, he tells his best friends Kika, Fei Fei and Casper. Frightened, the four spend their time getting high on cheap drugs, hanging out in KTV rooms, and wandering down to the waterfront to ruminate on life and love in the city. As they come to terms with the possibility that Bei Bei may really be sick, the foursome comes closer together, sharing stories of attempted suicide and betrayal. The plot also involves a love story between Bei Bei and his friend Jie. They grew up together and are very confused about their sexual orientation. Bei Bei denies he is gay but at the same time tries to persuade Jie to have sex with him. He is also very threatened by Jie’s sexual interest in girls.

 

导演阐述 Director’s Statement

 

一个人的电影:我用DV表达城市上海

 

《我们害怕》是中国第一部“残酷青春”题材影片。以上海为背景,展示几个迷惘青年的动荡生活和他们面临着的个人成长过程中的心灵危机。他们被接踵而至的问题如药物、性取想、艾滋病、色情网站等问题所困扰,又在彼此依赖中收获安慰。在他们背后,是一座城市巨大的幻变身影。

 

《我们害怕》是一个人的电影:我是作品的制片人、导演、摄影、剪辑、录音及编剧。《我们害怕》又是一起的电影。没有爱、友谊、责任和执着,我们无法完成此片。拍摄时,我无法冷静旁观,居高临下审视调度故事的戏剧性,无法算计出情节、概念或符号来赢得投机。拍摄时,我把摄像机当成我自己。运镜上,我竭力避免不必要的晃动摔动和所谓的流畅。一旦镜头喧宾夺主,必须立即龟缩。一旦龟缩过头,则大胆处理调整, 上海终没在我们手里被再一次强奸成美女飘香满地黄金。

 

In a city where everything is possible, discovering who you are is the wildest ride of all.

导演阐述 Director’s Statement

 

最近无主角电影行起,得益于《通天塔》和《撞车》。《通天塔》的文艺式大热,和布拉得比特有关,《撞车》得益于好来坞的制片发行机制。《目的地,上海》也是无主角,且拍得更早。但没有好来坞概念没有大明星布拉德·皮特垫着,这部电影今年产生基因突变,被香港媒体誉为“得了奖的三级片”。

Recently, films that do not have a fixed protagonist such as Babel and Crash have become more and more popular. Brad Pitt should be credited for the success of Babel, and Crash benefited from the Hollywood studio system. Welcome to Destination Shanghai does not have a fixed protagonist either, but was shot earlier than these other films.

三人在唐蕃古道上相遇,相知,相离。。。沿途,纯净的天空中,青藏高原美幻绝伦的浮云,一幕一幕地跟随着主人公们,春风化雨般地洗涤着天上和人间。

 

A Shanghai writer raised in an orphanage invites her godmother to her Shanghai home. The godmother was originally from Shanghai but had married a Tibetan classmate and moved with him in the 1950s to Yushu, on the Tibetan Plateau. When the godmother dies unexpectedly in Shanghai, she leaves a will pleading for the writer to bring her prayer beads back to her Tibetan Buddhist teacher in Yushu so that her soul may be freed to heaven.

 

Da Wei lives in Beijing and has been told by his doctor that he has three months to live. He departs for Yushu in search of Xiangzi, a poet and university classmate who had disappeared twenty years earlier, in order to keep the vow he made back then that the two would see each other one last time before leaving this world.

 

Meditating each night, Xiaobao believes he can enter the core of the universe and communicate with aliens. One night, a message is sent to his dreams by an alien stating that only in Yushu would he encounter the UFO that would take him away from Earth and return him to his homeland on another planet. With this message, Xiaobao sets off on the road to Yushu, looking for the UFO and aliens.

 

The three meet and separate on the Tibetan Plateau, a world mirrored by floating clouds that gaze down constantly,illuminating a Zero Thousand Li journey under the moon and sky of Tibet.

导演阐述 Director’s Statement

 

当素食正在取代鲍鱼,成为宴请的范儿时,电影《浮云》犹如一道赏心悦目的光影素宴,试图给习惯了重油口味的电影观众换个口味。

 

影片深入唐番古道的密境,运用好来坞高科技的IMAX及高速和低速电影拍摄技术,在海拔4500米以上的青藏高原全程拍摄。

 

影片适合那些想上路,或正在路上的驴友;那些没去过西藏,或各种原因去不了西藏的;那些想看青海湖的油菜花,唐番古道的星宿海,德令哈的满月,青藏高原的繁星,玉树的彩云,以及神秘的雍布拉康 – 西藏吐蕃王朝的第一座宫殿,传说中外星人经常出没的地点。

 

影片暗合了当下正在流行和倡导的慢生活方式:找块地方,看部这样的电影,让心慢下来,跟着的影片的主人公归隐到田园,到遥远的玉树,经历一下诗人海子眼中的面朝大海,春暖花开,以及沧海桑田,物我两忘。

 

This is a road movie shot in Yushu, Tibet. It infuses the latest 4K digital film technology with an Eastern philosophical core mentality. The film aims to salute a passing Chinese era when morality had not been replaced by money, poetry and romance were valued, and people did not have to be in Tibet to see a blue sky, a full moon and blossoming flowers.

 

This film is the first episode of my Tibetan trilogy. Aesthetically, it is tailored to the local Tibetan philosophical view that everything has a soul, be it a floating cloud or a human being. This view holds that through a silent gaze, people can communicate with anything: clouds, flowers, lakes, etc.

 

I try to achieve here a cinematic narration not through a linear dramatic construction of incidents, but through keeping the space vacant and the rhythm paced so that a private space can be reserved for the viewer to sense the vibration in terms of their own contexts. A similar approach is often adopted in the traditional Chinese painting style known as liu bai (留白).

 

The film also pays tribute to the 1940s classic Chinese road movie Eight Thousand Li under the Clouds and Moon, which shows scenes of blood, death and turmoil in the breathless darkness of wartime.
