导读:《比利•林恩的中场战事》是著名导演李安的最新力作。与其他电影不同的是,该片采用了每秒120帧的高频率拍摄手法。而这一新技术,又是否会成为电影的未来呢?

At 1 am on Nov 6, queues of people started to form in front of a building in Shanghai. *Passersby would be forgiven for thinking that the crowds were gathering for the release of the latest iPhone, however, they just wanted to buy a ticket for the Nov 11 release of Ang Lee’s new film, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk. The last time people had shown this much interest in a movie was with Avatar, released in China back in 2010.
11月6日的凌晨1点,在上海的一栋大楼前,人们开始排起了长队。路人们或许认为这群人在等着最新款的苹果手机发布,他们会这样想也无可厚非。然而,这些人其实只是想买一张11月11日首映的李安新片《比利•林恩的中场战事》的电影票而已。而上一次人们对一部电影有如此热情,还是在2010年电影《阿凡达》登陆中国院线的时候。

But it wasn’t the fact that Lee is an Oscar-winning director that drove people to wait overnight, rather that he’s a game changer.
人们连夜排队并非因为李安曾获得过奥斯卡奖,而是因为他是个变革者。

There is nothing hugely remarkable about the film’s *storyline itself, which sees 19-year-old soldier Billy Lynn return home to the US from Iraq, struggling with a mental disorder. What makes the movie stand out is the way it was shot, with Lee using an immersive 3-D process where the film is presented at 120 *frames per second.
这部电影的故事情节本身并没有太大亮点。它讲述了一名19岁的士兵,比利•林恩从伊拉克战场回到美国,内心经历了各种困扰和纠结的故事。而这部电影梗引人瞩目的则是它的拍摄方式。影片中李安采用了一种拟真的3-D处理方式,以每秒120帧的频率呈现电影画面。

“I learned so much about cinema,” Lee said of this breakthrough to Boston Herald. “With 120 frames per second, I got something new. So I think it’s great.”
“我对电影业做了很多了解,”李安向《波士顿先驱报》介绍这项突破时说道。“每秒120帧的拍摄技术,让我产生了一些新想法。所以我认为这简直棒极了。”

Films are not actually moving images but are made up of still pictures that are shown at 24 frames per second, with our brains seeing these as one continuous image. For the past 90 years we have been watching films made this way, but by speeding things up to 120 frames, details such as the movement of a pair of eyes is presented in lifelike detail by Lee.
实际上,电影并不是动态的影像,而是由静态的图片组成。这些静态的图片以每秒24帧的频率播放,在我们的大脑中形成了一个连续不断的影像。在过去的90年间,我们所看到的电影都是以这样的方式拍摄而成。但在李安将画面频率提升至120帧之后,电影里就连眼睛活动的细节都栩栩如生。

“When I left this incredible experience, I was shaking and terrified, as though I had actually had that experience,” US film director Doug Trumbull told the IndieWire website after he watched Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk.
“这一不可思议的观影体验令我十分震撼而又深感恐惧,如同身临其境一般,”看过《比利•利恩的中场战事》后,美国电影导演道格•特朗布尔在接受IndieWire网采访时表示。

However, this is not the first time that the Chinese-born director has pushed cinematic *boundaries.
然而,这并不是这位生于中国的导演首次突破电影的原有界限。

His Oscar-winning film Brokeback Mountain (2005) was one of the first LGBT-themed movies to be a mainstream success. And in Life of Pi (2012), Lee used computer-generated imagery and 3-D technology together, winning him another Oscar.
他的奥斯卡获奖之作、电影《断背山》(2005)是第一部大获成功的同性恋题材电影。而在电影《少年派的奇幻漂流》(2012)中,李安将电脑合成影像和3-D技术结合在一起,这也令他再度赢得奥斯卡大奖。

But it seems not everyone appreciates his efforts. Only a handful of movie theaters around the world have *updated their equipment to show Lee’s latest release in all its fast-framed glory, with China being home to two of those. Audiences have also questioned whether it was necessary to shoot a film in such an unusual way when they are just fine with watching films made at the traditional speed.
但似乎并不是所有人都认可他的努力。包括中国的两家电影院在内,全球只有少数电影院升级了放映设备,能够以高频帧数放映李安这部最新的作品。观众们也在质疑是否有必要以这种不同寻常的方式拍摄电影,因为在他们看来,以传统频率放映的电影没有任何问题。

Lee has his own beliefs, though. “I’m 62 years old, but I’m still growing,” he said during the film’s Beijing *premiere on Nov 6. “I want to be the ‘guinea pig’ to test the possibilities of films, even if it sometimes means ‘challenging’ audiences’ old habits.”
尽管如此,李安也有他自己的信仰。“我已经62岁了,但我还在不断成长,”11月6日,他在该电影北京首映会上说道。“我想要充当实验的“小白鼠”,来测试电影的各种可能性。哪怕有时候,这意味着‘冒犯’观众们原有的观影习惯。”
