劇介

Manena是個意志堅定的少女,也是Pancho的寶貝女兒。富有的智利地主Pancho把閒暇時間都投入在一件事:消滅入侵人工潟湖的鯉魚。

他採取的手段越來越極端,Manena也在這段期間經歷了初戀和背叛,並發現了一個與自己的世界無聲共存的世界:原本生存在這塊土地上的馬普切印第安工人,他們起而與她的父親抗衡。

 

其他資訊

《飛魚盛夏》是智利導演瑪切拉薩依德第一部敘事電影,她以紀錄片《El Mocito》和《I Love Pinochet》而聞名。本片融合了傳統成長電影的元素,以及關於智利南部原住民馬普切人與國家土地權利衝突的社會和政治評論——所謂的「馬普切運動」。

片名中的「飛魚」指的是Pancho執迷於消滅人工湖中大量生長的鯉魚,最終他以炸藥這種不當方式將魚群摧毀。

大自然的美景,特別是智利南部荒野在視覺上令人嘆為觀止,這裡有熱氣騰騰的溫泉池,霧濛濛的湖泊,生長著「dihueñes」(長在樹上的真菌)的原生樹木,鳥鳴聲和森林的沙沙聲更增添了迷人氣氛。廣大而原始的林地,不時可見貪婪西方的工業化行為,尤其是夜間出現巨大伐木卡車的場景。自然資源的開採引起了爭端,片中並沒有公開討論這一點,但這些場景引起人們對自然美景遭到破壞的憤慨。

Synopsis

Manena is a very determined teenager, and the darling daughter of Pancho, a rich Chilean landowner who devotes his vacations to a single obsession: the extermination of carp fish that invade his artificial lagoon.

As he resorts to more and more extreme methods, Manena experiences her first love, deception; and discovers a world that silently co-exists alongside her own: that of the Mapuche Indian workers who claim access to these lands… and who stand up to her father.

 

Other info

The Summer of Flying Fish is the first narrative film by Chilean director Marcela Said, who is known for her documentary works such as El Mocito and I Love Pinochet. It incorporates elements of a traditional coming-of-age tale, along with social and political commentary concerning the conflict between the indigenous southern Chilean Mapuche people and the state over land rights – the so-called “Mapuche movement”.

The “Flying Fish” of the title refers to Pancho’s obsessive campaign against the carp that are growing uncontrollably in his adored artificial lake, culminating in the ill-advised use of dynamite to destroy them once and for all.

The beautiful and evocative natural images and scenes of the southern Chilean wilderness are visually stunning, with steaming thermal pools, misty lakes and native trees growing with dihueñes (tree fungi), and the sounds of birds and the rustles of the forest add to the spellbinding atmosphere. This sense of the huge and unspoilt woodland is at times broken by evidence of rapacious Western industrialisation, most powerfully by a nocturnal scene showing huge logging trucks. The exploitation of natural resources is a fundamental source of contention in the dispute; this is not overtly discussed in the film, but scenes such as this provoke a feeling of indignation at this disregard for such natural beauty.

Reviews:

  • “An impressive move into feature drama with the evocative and atmospheric [first feature]”  Screen International, Mark Adams “a refined, politically conscious film by a female director” Peter Debruge, Variety
  • “A bourgeois Chilean family spend summer at their lakeside estate in this atmospheric drama… Marcela Said’s film is full of arresting images of Chilean nature [while] the story is shot through with class and racial friction…”—Hollywood Reporter
