劇介

《蜜果樹之戀》以1980年代後期衣索比亞內戰為背景,是衣索比亞裔以色列編導阿菈姆華克戴維安的精彩處女作。16歲的Mina出身猶太家庭,一家人正計劃逃離衣索比亞前往以色列,但Mina要等到救出她的基督徒男友Eli才願意走,以免他被強迫加入門格斯圖的軍隊。當她發現家人正計劃移民到以色列以逃離戰亂,她想了一個替代計劃以拯救Eli。但在戰爭時期,計劃往往會出錯。戴維安根據對戰時衣索比亞的回憶,拍出動人的《蜜果樹之戀》,呈現了初戀的力量和戰爭的恐怖。

Synopsis

Set against the backdrop of the Ethiopian Civil War in the late 1980s, Fig Tree is a remarkable debut film from Ethiopian-Israeli writer-director Aäläm-Wärqe Davidian. The Jewish family of 16-year-old Mina is planning to flee Ethiopia for Israel, but Mina won’t leave until she rescues her Christian boyfriend Eli from being forcibly drafted into Mengistu Haile Mariam’s army. Inspired by Davidian’s memories of war-torn Ethiopia, Fig Tree is a lyrical and moving reflection on the power of first love, and the terror of war.
