《要有光》Let There Be Light

 

《要有光》

《要有光》

《要有光》可以说是John Huston执导的首部将注意力放在前线归来的士兵身上的电影。影片拍摄于1946年,这也是二战三部曲中的第二部电影。跟随镜头,观众仿佛与在精神病院接受治疗的退伍军人一起,参与到他们从归来到康复的全过程。几乎所有人都伤痕累累,有些已瘫痪,有些则患上严重的口吃,而有些已失去了记忆。影片记录了包括药物催眠、团体治疗和专业治疗在内的各种治疗方法,士兵们也逐渐可以控制病情,努力以各种方式回归家庭和社会。

虽然片中的音乐极具戏剧性,但影片仍从现实主义角度关注了伤后应激障碍。数十年来,影片一直没有公开放映,这既是为了保护士兵隐私,也是为了避免对军事造成消极影响。

Let There Be Light

 

John Huston's Let There Be Light was the first film to focus on the traumatic experiences of soldiers returning from war. Shot in 1946, it is the second part of a trilogy about the Second World War commissioned by the U.S. government. We follow a number of veterans undergoing treatment in a psychiatric hospital - from their arrival and first sessions with a psychiatrist all the way up to the day they are discharged. Almost all of the men are deeply traumatized. One of them appears to be paralyzed, another has a bad stutter and yet another has no recollection of what happened to him. Various treatments are used, including drug-induced hypnosis, group therapy and occupational therapy. The men gradually gain greater control of their lives, enabling them to take steps to return to society and their families. Although the dramatic music and voice-over are typical of their time, the film offers a realistic and revealing perspective on what we now call post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD. The film wasn't screened in public for many decades, this to protect the privacy of the featured soldiers and to avoid a supposed demotivating effect on the military.
