电视剧报告:《亲爱的,我爱上别人了》Taiwanese Series Review

这个剧嘛,真的是让人纠结。

两个月前在台北时,晚上在酒店不小心看到一集,回来就搜来看。当时在电视上播出时,是偏向十一点左右的时间,回到来看了这部剧,才知道原来意识那么深厚,所以年轻孩子们可能并不愿意和不能真正去了解。

所谓戏如人生,你我有过差不多年级的人,一定都会听过看过类似这部剧的剧情。故事就是结了婚多年的妻子发现自己并不快乐,日子越久越不能隐藏自己的难过,而丈夫则是一贯努力工作的典型生意人,忽略妻子的感受,结果两人越走越陌生。

典型是不是?我们听了多少遍枕边人其实是最不了解自己的例子,因为这根本就是婚姻的学习基底:两个人如何不越走越陌生。除了爱与不爱,还有一大堆不知道能不能说出口、何时该说出口、如何说出口的想法。所以不结婚相处,并不能了解其中的点滴。仲然不是每对夫妻都会有如此剧烈的分歧,但是最基本的沟通和妥协问题肯定少不了,而这故事,恰好说到了这些。为什么婚姻如此亲密的关系,却往往有那么多让两个人不能够说出口的秘密?而同床异梦这个问题,又有多少人肯承认和面对?有时候太坦白,对婚姻是否并不是最好的做法?

剧里丈夫深爱妻子,却从来不了解她,其实并不是新鲜事。男人和女人本来就有着不一样的构造,很多时候并不是谁的错,而是谁忘记了,而谁不曾忘记,两人适不适合,还有愿不愿意无止尽地维持这样的处境。这部电视剧举出了诸多婚姻其中一种问题。

戏里的太太由天心来演,而丈夫则由李铭顺来担,那个让天心动了情的男朋友是新生Darren。三位主角的选角非常平衡,对手戏到后来越来越精彩,尤其天心和李铭顺之间夫妻纠结,让人无法不动容。李铭顺的戏我只看过几部,但是很赞同大家说的:这个丈夫他演的非常好,收放自如,该上戏时上戏,不该抢戏是就低调,镇住和牵引了整部剧的情绪。尤其到了最后那两集,真得让人为他掉眼泪,因为他的演绎,连背影都让人心酸。

剧情写的极致朴实和坦诚,是编剧搜回来的资料,还是自己的经历?当然,好的写作人往往能把自己置身故事中,但是能不能让大家深刻就需要情绪上的开窍了。这之前有不少如此题材的戏剧,但是总是点到即止,根本没有比较深入讨论此话题,而对白也不精彩,往往轻率处理,感觉很不真实,也看的出编剧团队其实没有认真看待题材的情感,不明白婚姻的难处,因此这次《亲爱的,我爱上别人了》自然就赢了很多分数;因为剧情真实,并不假装,让人心动。它诚实面对婚姻困难中的其中一个例子:爱或不爱,和能不能永远相处有所不同,还有,如果伴侣出轨了,怎么办?你会先想想自己做了什么或是没做什么,导致伴侣出轨,还是一味地不能接受?《亲爱的,我爱上别人了》和《犀利人妻》一样赤裸坦白。

共十五集的剧情开始当然是有点缓慢,那是基本的需要,为后来的剧情做开端,到了中段故事开始紧张起来,而第九集之后就大爆发,所以总的还说还是安排的很好。

在中段之后,我不断在猜想到底戏中的太太在最后有没有成功地和他的丈夫离婚,因为这是个让编剧很头痛的问题。真实人生来说,很可能会离婚,也可能不会,但是一部台湾偶像剧和电视台背负的责任比一个人重大,所以很多时候要以社会民情来做决定,并不能编剧说了算,而台湾,正是个思想比较封建的社会。如果剧情安排太太离婚后和男朋友从此相亲相爱,那肯定招来一大堆投诉,说偶像剧如何教坏现在的年轻人,鼓吹大家不开心就离婚等等;但是说夫妻不离婚,又像是在说无论多么不适合都随便吞声忍辱下去,不要改变原有的生活,和其它草草了事的电视剧没有不同,这真是无法两全啊。 

其实到最后,结局是如何,我也觉得合情合理,因为一段婚姻,本来就不是外人所能理解的。有些婚姻,也许真得不适合,分开了真得对大家都比较好;而另一些婚姻,其实只是需要个破冰点,其中一个人把船撑住,让大家说出真心话,协调后就能更完美。只有感情和婚姻,是没有一个标准完美模式要如何结局的。

戏里李铭顺说:“好聚好散也是其中一种爱情。” 这是多么有道理的一句话。曾经有缘份当情人当夫妻的,到后来如果走不下去,那么在能力的范围内好聚好散,是对彼此的基本尊敬,而且只有诚实的爱,才能让一个人卸下私心来好聚好散,但和现实相比,真得不多这样的例子。这部电视剧里,就有很多这样真实的对白,看得出编剧真得有用心体会,让演的人和看的人都跟着受惠。

十五集,应该是很多人能接受的集束,去看看吧,很有意思的电视剧。

PS: 写完后看到原来这是编剧一位亲人的故事。

Taiwanese Series Review

I first saw one of the episodes when I was in Taiwan two months back. Late night on the TV while putting my feet to rest. I remember thinking it is pretty interesting to see the Malaysia born Christopher Lee acted in the series.

Turns out the drama has more than that to offer. Typical topic of husband and wife issues, with a third party involved at the end, but I would say it is not exactly a typical shallow mellow production.

The series focuses on good plots and real in-depth dialogues, going deeper than usual into the relationship and back end issues of a family. The wife character is played by Taiwanese actress Tian Xin , while Christopher Lee was the husband. They were married for seven years but the longer into the marriage, the more Tian Xin realised she was totally unhappy. Naturally she feels her new friend (played by Darren) could understands her better. The writer did not back out in creating the tension between the characters, instead being very honest about the issues almost every household will face. 

Whether love alone is enough to sustain a family? If you have realised you made a slight mistake on your choice, what do you do? If your partner has an affair, would you ask yourself why? How do you guys communicate at home? Do you share secrets?

A typical topic with so many different scenarios, every family has a different version, and I am sure everyone of us know someone who has been through or going through the same issues as the couple in the series. This is an aged old topic that has no perfect answer to it. It is for every couple to ponder, and every heart to learn what is best for your and your partner. 

I must say Christopher Lee did an excellent job portraying the stubborn husband who loves his wife dearly. Being a mature married man, I guess he can relate to the topic, and bring the character to life. I think it is a very wise  choice to have casted him as the main actor.

This drama series woud definitely appeal to the more mature market instead of the youngster, for it is a topic more relevant to us instead of them. I would say this is one of the few fine drama productions in 2013.
