许鞍华银幕上的第一击,改编自龙虎山双尸案,却另辟蹊径,拍出了悬疑惊栗的爱情悲剧。三角恋的角力,都市男女因爱成恨,疯子旁观着的这场爱杀,既是缘亦是劫,分不清谁是加害者和受害人。编剧陈韵文以敏感纤细的女性触觉写两个女人的命运,一个开放一个压抑,欲海浮沉的梅小姬敢爱敢恨,传统小家碧玉李纨却因未婚怀孕而遁入阴暗,两人如镜像般一起踏上不归路。时空虚实交错的叙事结构,适时的倒叙和闪回,突破性的节奏为爱情命题罩上诡秘氛围,慢慢拼凑出局中人的失陷和无助。钟志文凌厉的影机运动,游走于西环唐楼和荒野、澳门和香港、日与夜、明和暗、新与旧,视觉上的强烈对比扣连着人物的不安心理。新修复版清楚见到李纨的镜中倒影,明示并非鬼魅;外衣和血花的艳红,夺目震撼。女人的爱和恨,占有和毁灭,只是一念之间。

It is abundantly clear watching The Secret, Ann Hui’s debut feature, that the director had mastered the film medium from day one. Hui, who went on to become a monumental figure of Hong Kong cinema, skilfully utilises the dynamics of the Hollywood suspense genre to tell a decidedly local tale. The story takes off from a horrific crime inspired by a real-life incident, turning sensational headlines into a mapping of social and psychological currents. The script by Joyce Chan, who had penned some of the most noteworthy projects by Hong Kong New Wavers dating back to their television years, is informed perceptively by a woman’s sensibility at once intelligent and compassionate. It also site-specifically sets the story in Hong Kong Island’s Western District, effectively using neighbourhood landscapes for dramatic ends. After the premiere of this restored version in Hong Kong in March 2017, the film will be screened at SCFF for the first time since the film’s initial theatrical run more than thirty-eight years ago.
