Heroic messenger or adrenaline addict? Truth teller or vulture?

 


先週までの公開ということで金曜日に観てきました。「そんなに大事なの、写真が」という字幕の部分はI hope it was worth it, the picture.やはり文脈あってこその文意だと思います。報道写真家が主人公ということで、Charlie Hebdoの事件後に興味がわいたのです。



Why did you start taking pictures of War?
Anger.
Are you still angry?
Oh, yes.

You get on a plane, go to some god forsaken place. You come home. We are happy. But all the time you are just waiting for the next shot.

I hope it was worth it, the picture.

These kids can't live in constant fear that their mother's gonna die.

Trust me. It’s OK.
Rebecca.

I want you out of my house.

There are some things you can do nothing about. I started something that I cannot walk away from



仕事か家庭か、という普遍的な問いですが、世界を飛び回る紛争写真家の場合は問題がより深刻になるようです。

‘1,000 Times Good Night’ movie review: Keeping the family in focus

By Michael O'Sullivan October 23, 2014

At times, it seems as if the choice Rebecca faces is straightforward enough: She can be a good photographer or a good mother, but not both. As the film presents it, that agonizing if simplistic dilemma is made all the more terrible when Rebecca suddenly realizes — with stomach-churning clarity — that Steph, a budding photographer, is heading down a path that may one day cause her to pick up a camera herself and point it in harm’s way.

紛争写真家に関してHeroic messenger or adrenaline addict? Truth teller or vulture?という問いに対して、この映画は随分と突き放した終わり方をしていました。

Insatiably, She Leaps Into the Fray
‘1,000 Times Good Night,’ Starring Juliette Binoche

By STEPHEN HOLDENOCT. 23, 2014

Heroic messenger or adrenaline addict? Truth teller or vulture? In “1,000 Times Good Night,” Rebecca (Juliette Binoche), a celebrated, morally self-righteous war photographer hooked on risk-taking, leads two lives that are in continual conflict.

Between grueling assignments in which she faces death by venturing into the heart of the fray, camera in hand, Rebecca returns to a picture-perfect existence at her home on the Irish seacoast. She is married to Marcus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, from “Game of Thrones”), a dashing marine biologist who frets every time she departs for a war front. They have two daughters; the elder, Stephanie (Lauryn Canny), is a teenager and a precociously talented artist.

These glossily photographed domestic interludes resemble a high-end magazine spread in which the camera slavers over images of virtuous, beautiful people savoring the good life. You have the impression that, to a degree, Rebecca’s hazardous work is a form of atonement for good fortune that she feels she doesn’t deserve.


正直、この映画は以下の映画レビューのように退屈に感じていました。報道写真家の使命をかっこよく描こうとしていないかとも思ったからです。

'1,000 Times Good Night': Movie review
Despite the presence of Juliette Binoche as a top war photographer, gorgeous looking film never really goes anywhere

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Thursday, October 23, 2014, 12:00 PM

Day-to-day life is banal, and her experiences haunt her. Sadly, this gorgeous-looking adult movie plays out the same theme over and over, never going anywhere surprising. At least we have Binoche to guide us to hell and back.

紛争地の事態が全く好転しておらず、むしろ深刻化しているという絶望感。報道写真家に高尚な役割を付与するよりもずっと正直な描き方だと思いました。
