[ 2006-09-11 09:45 ]

9月10日凌晨,全世界的影迷都看到了这一幕:中国第六代导演贾樟柯将沉甸甸的金狮奖举过头顶,脸上依旧是略显腼腆的笑容,只是多了几分自信……一直以来,贾樟柯都把视角投向了中国普通社会阶层的生存状态,从早期的边缘人物影片《小武》到关注进城打工仔的《世界》,贾导的镜头都在倾诉着一种人性关怀。一如既往,记录片《三峡好人》以平民史诗的姿态讲述了在三峡勤劳工作的工人。贾樟柯另一部影片《东》同样取材三峡背景,入选威尼斯地平线单元。

A poetic film about the construction of China's Three Gorges Dam and its effects on villagers facing state-sanctioned flooding, on the Golden Lion for Best Film at the 63rd Venice Film Festival.

"Still Life " (Sanxia Haoren) by Jia Zhang-ke, was a last-minute "surprise film" added to the 11-day festival, and left more fancied high-budget movies in its wake.

"We all know that China is undergoing enormous change and daily life is experiencing change as a consequence, and I focused my film on this," Zhang-ke told a news conference.

"Still Life" recounts the story of people who return to a rural village during the social upheaval caused by the giant Three Gorges project.

The 36-year-old director said that following his triumph in Venice, he would continue to make films "which express the problems of the weakest strata of society."

"The jury was surprised at the quality of the film that we saw," said jury president Catherine Deneuve, whose fellow judges included filmmakers Bigas Luna, Park Chan-wook, and Cameron Crowe.

Deneuve in particular cited "the beauty of the scenography, the quality of the story. We were very touched, we were very surprised, we were very moved. I know that everyone hasn't seen the film yet, but it's a very, very special film."

A second film by Zhang-ke, "Dong ," a documentary about workers building the dam, featured in the festival's Horizons section.

The independent filmmaker's 2000 picture "Platform" and "The World" in 2004 have previously been selected in competition at the Venice festival.
