在西西里岛的一家小旅馆,身心疲惫的Lee倚靠在桌子旁。她现在的处境很艰难,对未来已不再有特别的期待,更没有什么要埋怨的。Lee在利比亚担任战地摄影师时被挟持为人质,此刻刚被解救不久。她整天躺在床上一刻不停的抽烟,不想谈论自己的感受。她将自己与世界孤立隔离起来,拒绝和人沟通交流。

Lee时而拿着相机在西西里的街道上漫无目的地游荡,这是能使她看清这个世界又不与之过于亲密的方式。此间,她唯一见过的是她曾经的老师、爱人,但他却只是试图让Lee理解某些矛盾性的问题。

《战争故事》是讲述了一个因无法忘却过去而濒临崩溃的女人的故事,影片在叙事上节奏适当。无需任何注解,Mark Jackson缓慢地为观众呈现了主人公的真实的内心世界,观众亦与她一起体会这个难以磨灭的过去。本片是导演的第二部剧情片作品,他的处女作Without曾为其赢得多个国际电影节奖项。

War Story

 

An exhausted woman is at the desk of a small hotel in Sicily. She is being rather difficult, has special wishes and doesn't explain much. Lee (a brilliant role by Catherine Keener) is a war photographer, just back after being held hostage in Libya. She spends her days chain-smoking in bed, unable to discuss her feelings. In her self-imposed isolation, she shuts herself off from any human contact.

Between naps, she roams the streets of Sicily, her camera always at the ready. It’s a way to understand the world while keeping it at arm’s length. The only person she visits is her former mentor and lover (Ben Kingsley), who tries to get through to her with confrontational questions. Only when Lee meets a young Tunisian refugee and decides to help her, there is a breakthrough in her own healing process.

War Story is a captivating film about a traumatised woman who can no longer flee her past. With delicate camerawork, director Mark Jackson provides a striking picture of Lee's inner world. Without looking for an explanation, the film slowly but surely provides the necessary hints about Lee’s past. Together with the protagonist, the viewer searches for the elusive story she holds within her. This is Jackson’s second feature. His debut Without won several prizes at international festivals.
