张国荣致敬影展介绍


    Leslie Cheung Tribute

  
  On April 1, 2003, the world lost one of its great movie stars; but virtually the entire Asian diaspora knows that we also lost one of our most exquisite pop singers, most seductive sex symbols, most potent gay icons and most beloved celebrities, for Leslie Cheung Kwok-Wing was (impossibly) all of these. While millions of eastern-hemisphere listeners were entranced by his angelic voice and provocative musical performances, here in the west Leslie was known as the gorgeous, charismatic star of the gay-themed arthouse classics Farewell, My Concubine and Happy Together. What may not be so well-known in English-speaking territories is that Leslie was a tremendously gifted actor whose range encompassed both gay and straight, drama and comedy, romance and action.

  
  For this tribute, we wanted to celebrate and share as many of Leslie Cheung's unique gifts as possible, and so we've assembled a program that will show Leslie the actor, Leslie the singer, and (via tributes from many of his contemporaries) Leslie the Person. The six films selected—one period fantasy, three comedies, and two contemporary dramas—comprise a period in Hong Kong cinema that extends from 1993 (Bride With White Hair) to 2002 (Inner Senses), thus illuminating not just Leslie's astonishing ability to give a brilliant performance in any genre, but also offering up a small capsule history of a decade of Hong Kong film, for Leslie was the region's most enduring celestial figure. Whether playing a gay lover adrift in Argentina, a comically-desperate filmmaker, a millionaire songwriter with some gender confusion issues, a naive but adoring young lover of a ghost, or a mature yet vulnerable psychiatrist, Leslie's seeming effortlessness and sheer radiance always delight.

  
  As a singer, Leslie was "Gor Gor" or "older brother" whose star appeal began with a 1976 television performance of "American Pie" and continued unabated up through 2000, when Leslie came out onstage, acknowledging his twenty-year relationship with his partner Daffy Tong. In a society often thought to be homophobic, Leslie's status, if anything, only increased, proof of not just his talent but also his personal grace. Leslie the Person was adored by friends and fans alike, and his death left a cosmic void in the Hong Kong entertainment community.

  
  But our intent with this tribute is to dwell on Leslie's life, not his death, and to share some of his remarkable achievements with an audience that may be new to "the Legend." As his friend and frequent collaborator Tsui Hark said in memorium: "…all I can do right now is to reminisce, cherish, and treasure everything you've left behind." We couldn't have put it better, except perhaps to add-thank you, Gor Gor.

  LESLIE CHEUNG 张国荣致敬影展

    
  2003年4月1日,世界失去了一位伟大的电影明星。实际上,全亚洲的人们都知道,我们同时失去了我们最完美的歌者,最诱人的性感象征,最有力的同志偶像,这一切令人不可置信地集于LESLIE一身。在东方,成百上千万听众为他那天使一样的歌声和魅惑的舞台演出而着迷;在西方,通过《霸王别姬》、《春光乍泄》等优秀作品,他作为一位灿烂的,具有超凡魅力的明星而为人们熟知。但是英语国家可能不太了解的是,LESLIE是一个具有杰出天才的演员,对同性恋和异性恋、喜剧片和悲剧片、文艺片和动作片等各种题材同样驾轻就熟。

  
  通过这次致敬影展,我们希望能够尽可能全面地纪念并欣赏LESLIE那无可比拟的才华,因此我们编排了一个节目单,展示作为演员的LESLIE,作为歌者的LESLIE,并且,通过他所表演的现代作品,展示LESLIE的真实品性。所选择的六部作品——一部奇幻,三部悲剧,两部现代喜剧——涵盖着香港电影从1993年(《白发魔女传》)到2002年(《异度空间》)的发展历程,这不仅说明了LESLIE对于任何角色都能够给予卓越演绎的惊人能力,也提供了香港电影二十年的缩影,因为LESLIE是这个领域的最为杰出的天神一般的人物,无论是漂泊在阿根廷的同志情人,还是具有喜剧色彩的困境中的电影人,还是抱有性别困惑的金牌音乐人,还是天真而又可爱的迷恋女鬼的少年,还是成熟而又敏感的心理学家,LESLIE那熟练而又精准的表演都同样赏心悦目。
  

  作为一个歌者,LESLIE被尊为“哥哥”,他的星途从1976年电视比赛中一曲《AMERICAN PIE》开始,一直延续到2000年仍未褪色,尽管他在舞台上公开承认了他与DAFFY TONG二十年的伴侣关系。在一个对同性恋大有看法的社会,LESLIE的声名地位一直是只升不降,这不仅仅是由于他的才华,也是由于他的人格魅力。LESLIE的为人品性始终得到他的朋友们和FANS的尊重和喜爱,他的离世在香港演艺界留下了一个无法弥补的空白。
  

  但是我们这次影展的意图,是关注和评述他的一生,而不是他的离世。我们也希望以此与那些不太熟悉这位“传奇”的观众们共同分享他的非凡作品。他的一位朋友和多次合作者徐克在回忆文章中写道:“我现在所能做的是回忆,是怀念,是珍藏你所留给我们的一切,”我们无法说得更多更好,除了,也许,可以加上一句:“谢谢你,哥哥。”


致敬影展张国荣生平简介
  

  Leslie Cheung Kwok-Wing was born in Hong Kong on September 12, 1956; the youngest of ten children, his father was a successful tailor—and a largely unsuccessful father, as Leslie later recalled being a lonely and emotionally-neglected child. After receiving his education in both Hong Kong and Britain, Leslie went on to major in Textiles at Leeds University, but was called back to Hong Kong only a year later when his father became ill. Although his father hoped the young Leslie would take over the family business, Leslie's destiny was changed forever when his performance of Don McLean's "American Pie" earned him second place in the 1977 RTV Asian Song Contest. A year later the photogenic Leslie starred in his first movie—Erotic Dream of Red Chamber—and for the next four years he honed his acting skills in RTV television series.
  

  He returned to the big screen in 1982, appearing in films for both the venerable Shaw Brothers and Hong Kong's "New Wave" filmmakers; his performance in Patrick Tam's Nomad as a drifting, uncertain young man earned him his first of eight nominations for Best Actor in the Hong Kong Film Awards. After releasing four CD's, his 1984 song "Monica" (from the CD of the same name) won nearly every major Hong Kong music award, and his 1985 series of concerts established him as Asia's biggest pop star.
  

  Leslie followed that success with his performance in 1986's A Better Tomorrow (directed by John Woo and produced by Tsui Hark), which not only became Hong Kong's biggest film of the year, but also marked the Hong Kong film industry's emergence into global cinema. A year later Leslie received his second Best Actor nomination for A Better Tomorrow 2, and also starred for producer Tsui Hark in A Chinese Ghost Story, which became a worldwide hit. After again winning all of the major music awards in 1987 for his song "No Mood to Sleep", Leslie starred in Stanley Kwan's 1988 arthouse hit Rouge, and also became the first Asian star signed to represent Pepsi Cola.
  

  In 1989, Leslie was voted number one in Commercial Radio's "Top Ten Most Beautiful People in Hong Kong," and he shocked his fans when he revealed that he wanted to retire from music to concentrate on acting. His decision seemed to pay off, since in 1990 he won Best Actor for his performance as the sensual womanizer Yuddy in Wong Kar-Wai's Days of Being Wild, and in 1993 he starred in Chen Kaige's universally-acclaimed Farewell My Concubine, which earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Foreign Film and set a new standard for gay-themed films. As if to boldly demonstrate his diversity, that same year Leslie played a swaggering swordsman and lover to Brigitte Lin's title character in Ronny Yu's exquisite period fantasy The Bride With White Hair, and received a Hong Kong Film Awards Best Original Song nomination for "Hung Ngaan Baak Faat" ("Red Face White Hair"), which he not only performed but also wrote the music for. In 1994 Leslie was named Best Actor by the Hong Kong Film Critics Society, for his performances in Wong Kar-wai's Ashes of Time, as well as He's a Woman, She's a Man, It's a Wonderful Life and Long and Winding Road. 1995 and ‘96 saw Leslie give two of his funniest performances, first in Tsui Hark's The Chinese Feast and then in Derek Yee's Viva Erotica; 1995 also saw Leslie's return to music, as he released four CD's that year alone. As Hong Kong was being handed over from Britain to China in 1997, Leslie played a petulant gay lover adrift in Buenos Aires in Wong Kar-Wai's Happy Together, garnering Best Actor nominations from both the Hong Kong Film Awards and Taiwan's Golden Horse Awards, and in 2000 he cemented his status as Hong Kong's preeminent gay icon when he dedicated a song during one of his concerts to his longtime partner Daffy Tong.
  

  As the Hong Kong film industry experienced a slump in the early 2000's, Leslie seemed to focus more on music, although his performances as a gun-obsessed psychotic in Double Tap and a troubled psychiatrist in Inner Senses garnered him more Best Actor nominations. On April 1, 2003, Leslie shocked his legions of fans by leaping from a 24th-floor balcony of a luxury hotel in downtown Hong Kong, leaving only a note that cited "depression." His funeral services were attended by roughly 10,000 fans, and his passing was mourned by virtually every member of Hong Kong's entertainment community (where he was known simply as "Gor Gor," or older brother). As director Chen Kaige wrote in memorium, "Leslie was a rare flower in Hong Kong's entertainment world, which only blossoms once in a century."

  张国荣(Leslie Cheung)于1956年9月12日生于香港,是家里十个孩子中最小的一个。他的父亲是一个成功的制衣商,却是一个极不成功的父亲,以至于Leslie日后回忆自己是一个孤独寂寞,情感上被忽视的孩子。Leslie先后在香港和英国接受了教育,并且考入英国里兹大学修读纺织专业,但是一年后因为父亲病重被召回香港。虽然父亲期望年轻的Leslie继承家族生意,但是在1977年丽的电视台举行的亚洲歌唱大赛上,Leslie以一曲Don Mclean的《American Pie》夺得亚军,从此改变了一生命运。一年后,形象出众的Leslie出演了他的第一部电影《红楼春上春》,随后四年里在丽的电视台的电视剧集里磨练了他的演技。
  

  1982年,Leslie重回大银幕,在传统的邵氏电影和香港新浪潮电影中都有演出。在谭家明导演的电影《烈火青春》中,他成功地扮演了一位漂泊无助的年轻人,赢得了香港电影金像奖最佳男主角提名,这是他八次提名金像奖影帝中的第一次。1984年,他出品的第五张专辑唱片《Monica》中的主打歌曲《Monica》获得了香港音乐界几乎全部大奖,1985年的一系列个人演唱会更是确立了他作为亚洲首席歌星的地位。
  

  1986年,Leslie出演电影《英雄本色》,再续成功之路。这部电影由吴宇森导演,徐克监制,不仅是当年香港最佳电影,也标志着香港电影事业冲上世界银幕。一年后,Leslie以《英雄本色II》中的精彩表演赢得了第二个香港电影金像奖最佳男主角提名,同年演出的徐克作品《倩女幽魂》,也轰动全球影圈。随后,Leslie的一曲《无心睡眠》包揽香港音乐界所有最高荣誉,在关锦鹏作品《胭脂扣》中的表演再一次获得金像奖最佳男主角提名,并受邀成为百事可乐的首位亚洲代言人。
  

  1989年,Leslie在香港商业电台“十大靓人”选举中名列第一。同年,他做出了令歌迷们震惊的决定:退出乐坛,专注电影事业。他的决定似乎得到了回报,1990年,他在王家卫作品《阿飞正传》中扮演的对女人有致命诱惑的雅皮士为他赢来了香港电影金像奖最佳男主角奖。1993年,他出演陈凯歌作品《霸王别姬》,这部电影在全世界受到广泛好评,获得美国奥斯卡金像奖最佳外语片提名和法国戛纳电影节金棕榈奖,他扮演的痴迷于事业和爱情的艺术家也获得了戛纳电影节最佳男主角提名。同年,他扮演的另一个迥然不同的角色证明了他演技的全面性和多样性,那是于仁泰作品《白发魔女传》中一位狂放的剑侠,与林青霞扮演的女主角陷入苦恋,他亲自作曲并演唱的主题曲《红颜白发》获得了台湾电影金马奖最佳原创歌曲奖。1994年,Leslie以在王家卫作品《东邪西毒》中的演出获得香港电影评论协会最佳男演员奖,同年在《金枝玉叶》中的演出获得香港电影金像奖最佳男主角提名。1995年和1996年,Leslie献出了两次精彩的喜剧表演,一个是徐克作品《金玉满堂》,一个是尔东升作品《色情男女》,后者再一次获得香港电影金像奖最佳男主角提名。1995年也是Leslie重返歌坛的一年,他在那一年里出品了四张专辑唱片。1997年,当香港回归中国大陆之际,Leslie在王家卫作品《春光乍泄》中扮演了一位漂泊在阿根廷的任性的同志情人,兼获香港电影金像奖和台湾电影金马奖两个最佳男主角提名。二十一世纪初,当香港电影陷入低潮之际,Leslie似乎更多地致力于发展音乐事业,成功举行了上百场世界巡回演唱会,但是他在《枪王》中扮演的痴迷枪技的精神病人和《异度空间》中烦恼缠身的心理医生又为他赢来三项最佳男主角提名。
  

  令所有爱他的人们震惊的是,2003年4月1日,Leslie从香港市区中心的高级酒店文华酒店二十四楼阳台一跃而下,只留下了一张写着“Depression”(抑郁)等词句的便条。他的葬礼有数万名香港公众参加,他的离世也使香港演艺界每个成员都陷于深深的哀悼之中。正如陈凯歌在回忆文章中形容的那样:“Leslie是香港演艺界百年一放的奇花。”
