Abstract: 杨德昌(1947-2007)是 80 年代至 90 年代台湾新电影的重要导演之一。其电影 深刻地揭示了台湾都市社会问题,包括爱情与婚姻问题。本文研究该爱情与婚姻观的 动机是由于爱情婚姻是一个普遍的情节发展,人们容易习以为常,以此忽略了其中在 电影中的意义,同时关于这方面的研究少之又少,所以想要从中探讨它隐藏的“恐 怖”观念与现象。本文将通过文本分析法并结合现实例子来探讨当代的“恐怖”爱情 婚姻观。再者,本文将以五部电影:《海滩的一天》、《青梅竹马》、《恐怖分子》、 《牯岭街少年杀人事件》与《麻将》,当中不同的题材,探讨其中爱情婚姻所呈现的 相同的“恐怖”观念。另外,本文还会结合书籍、学术文献与网络资料,以此研究电 影以及其中与现实两者的联系。 最后,笔者发现当代的爱情婚姻观主要面对的是经济与思想转变的影响,逐渐 造成男女思想与行为上的平等,是一样地“恐怖”。同时杨德昌导演最初所提倡的 “柏拉图式”爱情观无论是在电影或是现实中都也很难实现,不利于爱情的发展,以 此了解到爱情的“杂质”也有它自身的作用。因此,通过杨德昌电影了解现实中存在 着错误与不健康的观念,使故事与现实例子都走向悲剧,引起观众对爱情婚姻的社会 问题的思考与关注。 Edward Yang (1947-2007) was one of the leading filmmakers in the 80’s to 90’s film movement known as the Taiwanese New Wave. His films have deeply revealed multiple underlying issues in the current urban society of Taiwan, including the issue on love and marriage. The motivation behind the focus on the concept of love and marriage in this essay is because the significance of love and marriage are often neglected by the public as it customarily appears in every movie plot. This led to the public being accustomed to the love and marriage scenes in most films and hence little thoughts are given to it. Additionally, very little research papers could be found on the topic of love and marriage. Therefore, it sparks an interest within me to analyse the phenomenon of love and marriage, and how some fear love and marriage which results in affected relationships between couples. The analysis of contemporary “terrible” encounter in love and marriage will be based on real-life examples as well as an in-depth study of the 5 movie plots directed by Edward Yang, namely - “ That Day on the Beach”, “Taipei Story”, “Terrorizers”, “A Brighter Summer Day”, and “Mahjong”. In the thesis, these five movie plots will be cross-referenced to bring out similar points of view regarding the concept of “terrible” encounter behind love and marriage. Besides the 5 movie plots, this thesis also includes the use of academic papers, literature books and online articles to further explore and substantiate the relationship between the love in films as oppose to the love in reality. Through the in-depth research, I have discovered that the contemporary view of love and marriage faces the influence of economic and ideological changes. The thesis also further brings out the point that men and women both have similar perspectives towards love and marriage, and these perspectives mainly consist of fear. At the same time, the "platonic" concept of love originally advocated by Director Edward Yang is also difficult to realize in both movies and reality. In this way, we understand that the "impurities" of love such as sexual elements also have its own effects in the development of a relationship. Therefore, through Edward Yang's films, we understand that in reality public perceptions of platonic relationship are usually unhealthy in a relationship. Such perceptions have led to many social issues in love and marriage which may also contribute to the broken marriages we observe in reality.
