 Hachiko: A Dog's Story (2009)                                                                               

        许是看多了人间的悲欢离合,一般的影视作品已经很难打动我了,即便是有催泪弹之说的《唐山大地震》也没有让我太过悲働。

        可是,这样一部简单的电影,简单到甚至不需要听懂片中人物的对话;这样一部平淡的电影,平淡到既无曲折的情节,又无大的场景;这样一部喜剧风格的电影,即不煽情又不矫情,却让我泪水涟涟。看过好几天了,每当想到那只叫做八公的狗,还会泪湿眼睫。

        小镇车站,冬日的黄昏。一只小狗,被装到木条箱子里托运,箱子从车上掉下来,木条箱摔坏了,小狗爬出了木条箱,在车站熙熙攘攘的人群中钻来钻去,成了一只无家可归的小狗。五十多岁的钢琴教授帕克(理查·基尔 Richard Gere 饰)每天在这个车站乘火车上下班。他无意中看见了这只小狗,俯下身去,爱怜地抱起了小狗,这一抱,就是一辈子,再也不能放下。

        教授的妻子凯特(Cate,琼·艾伦 Joan Allen 饰)不喜欢狗,教授把狗藏在一个小纸箱里。当他与凯特亲热时,小狗爬出了纸箱,来到他们的卧室,去添凯特的脚。凯特吓坏了,坚决不允许把小狗留在家里。于是,他们打印出寻狗主启示(puppy fund),在小镇里四处张贴。而当有人打电话来认领这只狗的时候,接电话的凯特先是答应了,可是,当她望向窗外看见帕克在花园里与小狗玩得正欢时,她拿起了电话,说了一句“Sorry”,她知道,那只小狗已然是她丈夫的生命一部分,再也无法分开了。

           电影用及其平实的手法讲述一个狗与人相处的故事,尽是不经意的小事,娓娓道来,点到为止,没有一点点的夸张和矫情,却真真实实地打动每一个人,因为我们从电影中看到了我们自己与狗相处的经历,从而产生共鸣,感到温馨。看到小狗与教授一起吃苞米花,想起了我的小狗冬冬与我一起嗑葵花籽,你一粒,我一粒,一起咂吧嘴,遂会心地笑;看到教授与小狗玩球,秋田狗八公不喜欢玩球,教授为了教会它,便学狗的样子,趴着,用嘴叼球,想起了冬冬与我一起扯绒毛玩具老虎,扯过来拉过去,快乐得像回到童年。

        教授对八公关爱照顾无微不至,八公对教授依恋不舍,人狗情谊水乳交融。教授去上班,把八公关在花园里。八公在篱笆底下刨了个洞,钻了出来赶到车站送教授;凯特把洞填了,八公飞跃篱笆跑到车站。没办法,只好由它。自此,每天早上八公送教授上火车。每天下午五点,八公准时出现在小镇车站出口处的花坛边,趴在一块石板上眼巴巴地望着车站进出的行人,当看见教授走出车站,叫出那一声熟悉的“Hachi”时,它便欢快地摇着尾巴,飞奔到教授身旁,跳起来扑到教授怀里撒娇,教授爱抚地拍拍它的头,它亲热地舔舔教授的手,然后乖乖地跟着教授回家。这一切已然成了一幕动人的情景剧,每天在小镇车站上演。小镇车站的站长,卖热狗的小贩,附近商店的老板娘及上下车的旅客都是这幕情景剧的忠实观众。

        电影的导演极力避免煽情,导演莱塞·霍尔斯道姆笑着这么说:“希望电影温馨但不滥情,因此避开许多洒狗血的桥段。因为我希望它是一部喜剧,不应过于强调悲伤,而是单纯呈现人与狗之间的情谊。”因此电影中有一些很有趣的场景。八公风雨无阻地接送教授已经成了习惯。突然有一日,教授走出车站,没有见到八公,怎么回事?教授急坏了,飞奔回家,原来八公被一只臭鼬(Skunk)堵在八公居住的小屋里。狗儿通常都害怕臭鼬,因为它放出的臭屁会让狗儿痛苦万分。教授企图拿一只纸箱扣住臭鼬,不料被臭鼬一个臭屁熏倒。凯特回家不见了教授和八公,打开浴室,却发现他们两个浑身抹满了番茄酱。只有番茄酱可以洗去臭鼬的屁味,对此我深有体会,本人也领受过臭鼬的厉害。看到此处,又是会心的大笑。

        人生难测,悲剧会随时降临。当一个人突然离去,最痛苦的是谁?当然是他的至爱亲人了。但是,这个答案却不一定正确。

        教授突发疾病死在课堂里。那天早上教授离家时八公就有预感,八公先是狂叫着阻止教授出门,教授不明白,独自走到车站。八公追了上来,嘴里叼着那个球,要求教授与它一起玩球,教授高兴极了,以为他终于教会了八公玩球。教授的日本朋友曾经告诉过他,若秋田狗玩球那一定会有特殊原因。但是教授哪里懂得。八公无法阻挡教授,悲哀无望地看着教授离去。

        教授离开了人世,教授的妻子卖了房子也离去了。教授的女儿安迪一家收养了八公。但是八公思念着教授,它不相信主人已经永远不会回来了。它偷偷跑出去,在风雪中跑到车站,趴到那个小花园的石板上,等着、等着、从五点等到八点多,等到夜幕降临,等到小站寂静无声。安迪找到它,把它带回家。它不吃不喝,呆呆地卧着,眼里满是忧伤。安迪抚摸着它的头,说,你一定要走,就走吧。八公在飘飞的大雪中来到了车站,找到一个废旧的车皮,钻到了车皮底下,从此,这就是它的家。这里离小镇车站很近。它每天按时到车站,趴在那块石头上,眼巴巴地望着车站进出的行人,眼睛里充满了期待、盼望。它盼望人群中会突然出现它的主人。然而,一天天的守望,一天天的失望。但它不放弃。它的忠诚感动了许多人,卖热狗的小贩给它食物,记者专门为它写文章。许多年过去了,一日凯特到小镇看帕克,在墓前见到了帕克的日本朋友。离开小镇时,在小镇车站看见了八公,她感动异常,抚摸着八公泪流满面。我想凯特一定有了自己的新生活,帕克只是凯特生命中的一部分,而他却是八公生命的全部。

        小镇车站花园里的树木由新绿变为浓绿、枯黄,随风飘落,随后是大雪飘零;又是新绿、浓绿、枯黄、飘落,大雪;一年又一年,九年过去了,八公也从一只漂亮、活泼、矫健的狗,变成了一条老态龙钟、步履蹒跚的老狗,唯一不变的是车站花园石板上静静守候的身影,那身影仿佛一尊石雕,诠释着盼望、等待与忠诚。

        又是一个寒冷的冬夜,老八公挣扎着从旧车皮下面爬起来,缓缓地,摇摇晃晃地走到车站花园,吃力地爬上那块石板,卧下,伸长脖子,把下巴放到石板上,用昏花的双眼注视着车站里来来往往的人群,最后,疲惫地闭上了眼睛。眼前,出现了它的主人,它飞奔而去,扑入主人的怀中。镜头缓缓转入小镇车站,风雪中,八公凝固在那个小花园的石板上了,带着幸福的神情。这一幕就像卖火柴的小女孩回到了天国,让人热泪止不住地流淌。

        爱狗的影迷应该都知道此片翻拍自1987年的日本电影《忠犬八公物语》,并且都来自同一个真实的故事,讲述的是同一个老人,同一只狗,同一份厮守终生的忠诚之爱。

        顺便说一句,这部好莱坞的翻拍片有许多成功之处,优美的音乐、干净的画面,到位的表演,简单清澈的感情却直达人心最深处,将我们柔情唤起。影片结尾处,音乐再次响起,教授的外孙牵着属于他的天使——另一只八公,于铁路道上,渐行渐远。人类共同的情感,不会被遗忘,会一代又一代的延续。这情感,就是爱。

用我的一生等候你--电影《忠犬八公的故事》观后感zt - Jennifer - 雨夜相思客

Hachiko’s statue at Shibuya Station

And so I found Hachiko…and here’s his story.

Hachiko was born on a farm near the city of Odate in the Akita Prefecture in 1923.  His name Hachiko means – “hachi” meaning eight which refers to his order of birth from the litter; and ko meaning prince or duke. To the Japanese he was often referred to as ‘chuken Hachiko’ or faithful dog Hachiko for that was exactly what his story was about …. love and loyalty.

In 1924, Professor Hidesaburō Ueno took in the Akita puppy, Hachiko as a pet. Over the next year or so pet and master developed a very close bound. They have developed a daily routine where Hachiko would see Professor Ueno out to the door of the Shibuya train station and be there again at the end of the day when he would greet his master and they would walk back home together. The pair continued their daily routine until May 1925, when Professor Ueno did not return on the usual train one evening.  The professor had suffered a cerebral hemorrhage at the Tokyo University where he was teaching. He died and never returned to the train station where his faithful dog and friend was waiting. But every single day Hachiko wold return to the Shibuya train station at the expected time of the professor’s return…he did this for the next nine years.

After the professor’s death Hachiko was given away to a different owner, but he would routinely escape returning again and again to his old home. Eventually, Hachikō realized that Professor Ueno no longer lived at the house. So he went to look for his master at the train station where he had accompanied him so many times before. Each day, Hachikō waited for Professor Ueno to return. And each day he did not see his friend among the commuters at the station.

Hachiko became a permanent fixture at the train station and attracted the attention of the commuters.Many of the people who frequented the Shibuya train station had seen Hachikō and Professor Ueno together each day. They brought Hachikō treats and food to nourish him during his wait.

That same year, a student of Professor Ueno who had become an expert in the Akita breed, saw Hachiko at the train station and followed him home. He found Hachiko at the home of the professor’s former gardener,Kikuzaboro Kobayashi, there he learned the history of Hachiko’s life.Shortly after this meeting, the former student published a documented census of Akitas in Japan. His research found only 30 purebred Akitas remaining, including Hachikō from Shibuya Station

Over the years Professor Ueno’s student frequently returned to the Shibuya station to see Hachiko, he also published several articles about Hachiko’s remarkable loyalty.  Then in 1932 one of these articles ended up at the one of Tokyo’s largest newspaper circulation, this threw the dog into a national fame. Hachikō became a national sensation. His faithfulness to his master’s memory impressed the people of Japan as a spirit of family loyalty all should strive to achieve. Teachers and parents used Hachikō’s vigil as an example for children to follow. A well-known Japanese artist rendered a sculpture of the dog, and throughout the country a new awareness of the Akita breed grew.

Eventually, Hachiko’s remarkable faithfulness became a national symbol of loyalty.

In April 1934, a bronze statue in his likeness was erected at Shibuya Station, and Hachikō himself was present at its unveiling.

On March 8, 1935 Hachiko was found dead on a street in Shibuya.His heart was infected with filarial worms and 3-4 yakitori sticks were found in his stomach. Out of deference for this remarkable dog, his remained were stuffed and mounted and are kept at the National Science Museum of Japan in Ueno, Tokyo.

Hachiko’s monument was destroyed during World War II but in 1948, The Society for Recreating the Hachikō Statue commissioned Takeshi Ando, son of the original artist who had since died, to make a second statue. The statue still stands up this day, and had become a tourist attraction and a popular meeting place for many. The station entrance near this statue is named “Hachikō-guchi”, meaning “The Hachikō Exit”, and is one of Shibuya Station’s five exits.
