Lena Headey in Imagine Me & You 2005

縱使Lena Headey之前已演過三次女同,一直要到<Imagine Me & You>才算真正獲得廣大拉拉的熱愛,而且聲勢幾乎壓過Piper Perabo.以她的戲份少於Piper,發揮空間小於Piper,這次她終於獲得女同觀眾的青睞.許多拉拉這才如夢初醒,原來眼前的大美女已經默默地演過四次女同角色了.
    Lena自知在拉子圈的人氣,尤其是IMY奠定了龐大的同志觀眾群.她曾在訪問中說道: I've got quite a big gay following. I played a lesbian prostitute in the TV series Band Of Gold but I think my following really grew when I played one in the film Imagine Me & You, with Piper Perabo. I'd worked with Piper before, on the movie The Cave, so it was quite weird when we had to snog each other in the film. We just looked at each other and went: "Shall we just go for it?" And we did.

我對這部電影的要求較高,當初評論時稍微苛刻一點(參見*Review),實在是因為結尾太不食人間煙火.不過,我在YouTube看到某位網友的自製MV,令人拍案驚奇!一般影迷MV,是用其他歌曲去強化影片中既有的情感,但是這位高手把電影片段重新解構,把喜劇轉換成悲劇,把開頭調成結尾,讓Luce-Rachel的歡樂片段成為此情可待成追憶.....或許因為他使用樂團A Fine Frenzy (主唱Alison Sudol)的"Almost lover"作為MV的背景音樂,竟讓這個顛覆的小短片,看來份外迴腸盪氣.

既然電影的劇情是圓滿結局,大家應該有足夠的氣度看看另一種結尾.

(歌詞) "Almost lover" by A Fine Frenzy You fingertips across my skin The palm trees swaying in the wind Images You sang me Spanish lullabies The sweetest sadness in your eyes Clever trick I never want to see you unhappy I thought you'd want the same for me Goodbye, my almost lover Goodbye, my hopeless dream I'm trying not to think about you Can't you just let me be? So long, my luckless romance My back is turned on you I should've known you'd bring me heartache Almost lovers always do We walked along a crowded street You took my hand and danced with me Images And when you left you kissed my lips You told me you'd never ever forget these images, no I never want to see you unhappy I thought you'd want the same for me Goodbye, my almost lover Goodbye, my hopeless dream I'm trying not to think about you Can't you just let me be? So long, my luckless romance My back is turned on you I should've known you'd bring me heartache Almost lovers always do I cannot go to the ocean I cannot drive the streets at night I cannot wake up in the morning Without you on my mind I cannot wake up in the morning Without you on my mind So you're gone and I'm haunted And I bet you are just fine Did I make it that easy for you To walk right in and out of my life? Goodbye, my almost lover Goodbye, my hopeless dream I'm trying not to think about you Can't you just let me be? So long, my luckless romance My back is turned on you I should've known you'd bring me heartache Almost lovers always do

自從Imagine me & You 一直被lena吸引住,好驚喜你能繼sugar rush之後又一甘詳細介紹我喜歡的topic.

這youtube MV的結構真的比電影的發展更為有吸引, nice recommand! Thanks!

Imagine Me & You不过只是一部投市场所好的政治正确的平庸行货而已,所谓行货,也即配料齐全,无惊无喜,把花匠改为一穷小子,改改对白端上来也能用,当吃个甜品,就这么回事。你对它不算苛刻了。

撇开电影不说,Lena Headey尚可观之。

Lost and Delirious也不是我的那杯茶,那个Piper横看竖看不顺眼,maybe it is just me.

I agree, the MV has more weight to the story. I like Lena Headey from Imagine Me & You and only this so far. Hope she can get better role in the future.

Orange 提到...

我一直認為英國女星的氣質獨特,和美國女星站在一起,立刻勝出.

Celine Lu 提到...

這MV.... 真的好美!

Orange Fruit 提到...

帥氣的Lena Headey現在變成可怕的王后,她越演越上手了。我有點想念她,能不能有其他作品?
