Abstract: 本文选出的两部影片探讨代际隔阂和现代社会压力如何使青年进行内省。笔者首先深究代际问题:代际隔阂的缘由来自不同世代的独特特征与各代间的互不理解,从而勾勒代际之间的冲突。除了不同代际,不同文化背景也能造成人与人之间的思想分歧。西方文化常与个人主义产生联想,东方文化则与集体主义有相联,因此在分析西方与东方文化的对立的同时,个人主义与集体主义的对立也明显突出。因此除了通用换位思考去理解各代的不同想法,人也应该尝试理解和接受各文化所持有的不同价值观,以去除人与人之间的冲突。《狗十三》(以下简称《狗》)和《别告诉她》(以下简称《别》)的青年都担任着妥协而对家庭和睦作出贡献的任务,从而获得成长。之后,笔者将阐述青年如何在被轻视的情况中应付代际与文化隔阂,并通过内省开始融入现实社会。 关键词:《别告诉她》、《狗十三》、青春电影、代际鸿沟、个人主义与集体主义 The two chosen films for this paper use generational divide and modern societal pressure to nudge youths to engage in inward reflection. The author will first examine the different characteristics of each generation and the lack of understanding between the respective generations, thereby accounting for the conflicts that occurred between each individual. Besides generational differences, cultural differences form another contributing factor to the difference in mindset in different individuals. For instance, western values are often associated with individualism whereas eastern values are usually associated with collectivism, thereby setting up a divide between individualism and collectivism when western values are studied against eastern values. Apart from thinking in the shoes of another individual to understand their views, one should also attempt understanding the different values encompassed by different cultures and thereby embrace or even overcome the conflict between individuals. The youths in Einstein and Einstein and The Farewell have contributed to their family’s harmony through compromise and in the process, attained growth. Finally, the author will illustrate how the youths have managed the generational and cultural divides despite being undermined, eventually assimilating into society via their inward reflection. Keywords: The Farewell, Einstein and Einstein, coming-of-age story, generational divide, individualism vs collectivism
