劇介

37歲的Dorien開了一間生意不錯的獸醫診所,育有兩個可愛的孩子,丈夫也事業有成。表面看來一切似乎都好,但似乎有一點不對勁。「未知大小的黑洞」報紙標題這麼寫,這句話也適用於她的生活。她不知道確切是何時發生的,但生活漸漸出了差錯。

在《多莉安的幸福人生》中,壞消息接踵而至:這究竟是一部審慎描述人性的冷面幽默劇情片,還是一部塞翁失馬焉知非福的戲劇性喜劇?父母的婚姻問題,剪不斷理還亂的外遇,某次不快的看診經驗,讓Dorien對生活有了不同的看法。

 

導演安可布朗笛與女主角金史諾威共同創作了Dorien這個角色,她是個個性鮮明又充滿同理心的女子,她不會一頭栽進任何事,但生活似乎就要發生變化。

影評:

比利時導演安可布朗笛傑出的首部作品,顯示這位前選角導演是一位值得關注的人才。

“....「《多莉安的幸福人生》是安可布朗笛以共同編劇兼導演身分拍攝的第一部長片,展示了她創造女性角色的才華,她並以選角導演的老本行找到能完美匹配的演員。金史諾威在本片表現出色,喜歡看女性劇情片的觀眾一定會大呼過癮⋯⋯」

飾演主角的女演員金史諾威將隨性又自主的Dorien演得非常生動。

Synopsis 

37-year-old Dorien has a flourishing veterinary practice, two sweet kids and a successful husband. Everything seems fine: on the outside. But there is something wrong. ‘Black hole of unknown size’ a newspaper headline says. This could apply to her life. When exactly it happened she doesn’t know, but somewhere along the way things went awry.

Bad news is followed by worse in The Best of Dorien B., a measured, human and dryly comedic drama: or is it a dramatic comedy about the opportunities created by misfortune? Her parents' marital problems, a lingering affair and an unpleasant hospital visit shed different lights on Dorien’s life.

 

Cautious Dorien, created by filmmaker Anke Blondé and lead actor Kim Snauwaert, is a recognisable, sympathetic heroine. She isn’t the type to launch herself headlong into things, but that something is going to change seems certain.

Reviews:

Notable debut from Belgium’s Anke Blonde which marks the former casting director out as a talent to watch. 

“....The first feature from co-writer and director Anke Blondé, Dorien B. showcases her talent for creating knotty, fully realised female characters and, drawing on skills from her other career as a casting director, for seeking out the perfect match of acting talent to role. Snauwaert is superb in a film which will tap into audience appetites for grown up, female-led drama....“ 

Kim Snauwaert, the actress who plays the protagonist, brings Dorien to life, who is as spontaneous as she is determined.
