《山东扎脚穆桂英》The Story of Muk Kwai ying Part One

穿梭古今、雕城镂栋-大布景师陈其锐、陈景森父子相辉展

影片放映时间安排

导演:黄鹤声
编剧:李少芸
又名《七彩杨宗保·扎脚穆桂英》
主演:任剑辉、余丽珍、梁醒波、半日安
1959 / 彩色 / D Beta / 粤语 / 96分钟

 

余丽珍抛下凄凉节妇和悲情东宫形象,变身泼辣率性的穆桂英。在阵上顷见俊俏武将杨宗保(任剑辉),竟即施展法术把他活生生擒去「享用」。但这名「小淫娃」(片中杨宗保语)却同时是个有着真情义的烈女,片中后段她为爱郎赎罪,便不惜冒险勇闯天门阵。余的敢作敢为,辅以谭兰卿、梁醒波、半日安生鬼啜核的演出,再加上靓次伯的老生功架,使全片庄谐并重。在李少芸妙想连篇的剧本启发下,黄鹤声的镜头运动变得罕见地鲜明活泼。道具、特技的运用也比同类前作《蟹美人》(珠玑导演,1957)、《无头东宫生太子》(龙图导演,1957)圆熟。

武场布景沿袭舞台传统,以三面结构环绕伶人演出空间,并预留「出将」、「入相」的位置以便调度,虽然技术的细致度不高,但陈其锐的背景设计却无疑充份表现了剧情天马行空的想像力。尾段「大破天门阵」,不但有机会让余丽珍展示她的扎脚、水发功架,幕幕诡奇妙趣的场景布置,更将全片的cult味散发殆尽!

The Story of Muk Kwai ying Part One

 

Dir: Wong Hok-sing
Scr: Lee Siu-wan
Cast: Yam Kim-fai, Yu Lai-zhen,Leung Sing-po, Poon Yat On
1959 / Colour / D Beta / Cantonese / 96min

 

Muk Kwai-ying is both a woman warrior and the chief of Mok Oi Fortress. She’s also adamant in proclaiming her love for the man she desires. This explains why she almost immediately incarcerates General Yeung Chung-bo upon their first encounter and makes him a captive, if not a sex toy. And what’s more, she’s all ready to sacrifice herself for him when he is trapped by the Heaven Gate Formation laid by the Liao troops, fighting against all kinds of weird creatures. The Story of Muk Kwai-ying, Part One is a cross-over between Cantonese Opera and the fantastic genre. Yu Lai-zhen, the female lead, has starred in several of this kind of films, such as The Headless Empress Bears a Son and The Crab Beauty (both 1957) and excels in such farfetched roles. Chan Ki-yui must have had a great time in designing a full-range of implausible but imaginative sets, each guarded by various strange beasts, trolls and monsters. Despite occasional crudeness, one must admit that this is entertainment in its purest form.
