好久没看日剧了,尤其现在感觉要找一部好看又能够上瘾的日剧好像越来越难,不懂是不是我变了还是现在的日剧没那么有吸引力了

不过这次看完unnatural后还是很喜欢日剧,真的很有意思,而且每一集都有感动想哭的感觉

我一直以来对法医侦探类的电视剧都很有兴趣,所以在众多的日剧清单中(你可想而知我是积累了多少部还没有看)很快就选了这部

<unnatural>整体上节奏紧凑而细腻,囊括的内容不止局限在法医解剖上,还包括了杂志社编辑的黑暗,官场上背后的阴谋和手段,不过也不会过于深入而忽略了重点

日本的剧本一向都非常厉害,对故事的陈设在剧本台词上都是非常专业,所以当所有医学,化学等理科名词出现并没让我意外,因为他们幕后准备功夫如此详细是预料之事。

故事架设在UDI,unnatural death investigation 的研究所,由日本厚生劳动省,也就是国家卫生部设立的职场上,主角们都是法医或临床检查技师,围绕在他们处理的案子上,并带出各个主角们背后的故事

我觉得看完这部日剧后大家对法医学的了解会更加趋向正面而敬畏,也会对死亡有另一层的领悟

Image result for unnatural japanese drama

石原里美饰演的三澄美琴是一位法医解剖师,外表看似强悍独立的她其实在小时候经历过妈妈带着全家烧碳自杀的遭遇,侥幸存活的她被阿姨收留后改姓坚强的一步一步走,一直不解妈妈为何如此狠心的她更试图想要战胜这种对不自然死亡的调查而踏上法医学的道路。

和死亡擦身而过的她坦然的面对自己过去,仿佛天不怕地不怕,对生存和生活还是给予希望,看似悲哀却比任何人都活的豁达

不知道其实他是否有逃避而全身投入在工作中,身边的家人和朋友都担心她,在从弟弟那里得知妈妈(也就是阿姨)对他的关怀后,打了一通电话告诉家人他一切安好

仿佛在他身上从未有任何坏事发生,这样一个正面积极的女生真的很让我欣赏,尤其他在自己的专业领域的热忱和职操,做事干劲且细腻是我很憧憬的目标

前曾经有朋友告诉我要培养自信的话其实可以尝试找一个想成为像她一样的人物,可以是明星或是身边的人,现在我觉得我就想像三澄美琴那样自然,正面而自信

Image result for unnatural japanese drama

故事另一个主人公中堂系一直看起来是嚣张的法医,但其实自己在8年前面无表情的解剖自己心爱的爱人后,一直都用不可一世的皮囊包裹自己的伤痛

8年以来用不法手段去调查自己女友谋害的真相,深信爱人是被连环杀人犯残忍的杀害,即使饱受被视为嫌疑犯的对待还是不顾旁人的看待坚持找到犯人后报复 

 

整部日剧在第8集,犯人的线索渐渐浮出台面后开始迎来了高潮,尤其是那犯人竟然是火灾事故中唯一被救活下来的幸存者,真的是超讽刺

这种人根本不值得被救,但这部日剧会告诉你每一个来到这世上的生命都必须被尊重,我们没有权利去剥夺一个人的生命,我们只能用正确的管道去惩治这种人,就像美琴说的,我们是法医就要用法治来去惩戒

如果是为了报复而去杀人还是自杀,这等于毁掉自己罢了,就像在第七集杀人游戏里那个被霸凌的同学一心想寻死,但是他死了有如何,就像美琴说的 将令你难受的人名留在遗书里 然后呢 他们肯定会转学 改名 开始新的生活 会把掠夺了你人生的事忘得一干二净 继续生活 就算你放弃了自己的生命 他们也绝不会感受到你的痛苦 这样也还是要死吗 你的人生 是你自己的 为了什么要这样糟蹋自己?只要活着就不会输,生命不应该被如此轻易的对待

你的人生是属于你自己的,没有人可以轻易剥夺除非你也放弃了你自己,我们都是碰巧还活着所以更加应该珍惜生命,因为只要还活着,就不会输,还有机会去做自己想做的东西,去爱身边的人

这部剧其实出了很多经典的台词,是一部可以反复看的日剧,因为里面的每个故事都很有意思,会让人省思生命的可贵,对日本社会的反映也面面俱到

像是畅销蛋糕店工厂老板对员工的压榨在员工送餐车祸出事后互相退让责任的丑陋,校园霸凌背后的真相,师长视而不见,政府也没有一个妥善的处理方法,调查青少年罪案的警方部门也没有一定的权利,非得有人死亡后才有资格展开调查,还有不按照指示就停止补助金的事情,最令人气愤的莫过于身为记者不揭发真相还以自己个人利益为首包庇一个残忍杀害26人的杀人犯,把这个变态的罪证修饰为妄想

简直猖狂!

可能会认为不过拍戏没必要那么认真,但其实这些事情时时刻刻都在我们周遭发生,只不过我们没有深入的去体会和了解过。

不过我依然相信还有那么一班人依然满怀热血的去伸张正义,对得起自己的专业和良心,像是UDI的所长,由松重丰饰演的神仓保夫为了对得起自己的工作也不情愿修改鉴定书所说的话那样

“UDI研究所是中立公正的研究机关,就算是收了补助金,我们也无法扭曲解剖结果。” 
“那高濑杀人不被制裁你们甘心吗?” 
“制裁高濑是你们的工作,我们已经完成了我们的工作,请你们不要转嫁责任。”

是啊,明明是检察官自己的工作,却为了能够胜述用旁门左道的方法来赢得胜利,更不用提到他之前坚持认定中堂系才是杀人凶手,还有在法庭上藐视女性,差点把一个无辜的百姓送进监狱

Image result for 日剧不自然死因研究所

当然有坏人也一定会有好人,UDI的东海林,还有洼田正孝饰演的久部六郎都是很热血,很正义的一员,虽然一开始洼田正孝其实是在udi打发日子,并且算是没有很情愿的做杂志社的密探,逐步找出udi的黑暗资料,理所当然的,他什么也没有发现,反而喜欢上法医的工作,从一开始的质疑到最后也说出法医学是为未来而生的工作

Image result for 日剧不自然死因研究所

还有一点是关于不明身份的遗体,也是UDI坚持研究的理由,他们保管着这些生命最后的完整,期待有天可以尘归尘,土归土,所以当洼田正孝终于下棋成功说服那个一直不肯接受伴侣已经离去的老头把伴侣的骨灰带回家时,大家都感动的不要不要,那个一直尘封在角落的美代子婆婆的骨灰终于找到回家的路了。

我想每一行都有自己的专业和意义,我们不该去否定任何人的工作甚至是生存的价值。每个生命都是可贵的,世界很现实很残酷没错,但是就如这部日剧有提过的:世道如何,是看自己如何处事吧?

生命一直都很脆弱,大家都非常明白,所以有什么想做的就尽力去做,请好好珍惜自己的人生

注:石原里美真的很漂亮啊,还有片尾曲米律玄师唱的《lemon》好好听哦~

Image result for 29+1

2年前这部电影上映时就一直很想看,奈何那时无缘,只是最近终于找到网上资源自己已经是29+3了

不过依然没有阻止我想看这部电影的兴致,只是整体而言,电影并没我想像中好看,应该不是因为自己已经离开20代 2年的关系吧 ,纯粹有点失望电影并没有带来多大的信息和意义,有我们这个年龄层共鸣的问题,如身体越来越不抗冷,越来越不能很年轻一代的同事交谈,父母年龄越来越大,同时自己越来越胆小,生活也越来越行尸走肉

《29+1》是根据舞台剧改编,在香港观众群中有一定的熟悉度 

Related image

女主一开始就囔着不想上班,却有机械式的面带微笑踏入办公室,反复的演习一成不变的生活步伐,日常作息,身边朋友一个个结婚去,也不确定他们是不是找到真爱幸福一辈子,毕竟自己的事情都应接不暇了,房东邻居也一直不断催促尽快结婚,是想说: 干你什么事!

遇到不可理喻的客户,也只能在内心上演一段辱骂戏 ,在客户面前还是鞠躬尽瘁,爸爸生死都要放在一边,最后是赢得客户满意,医院那里却迎来冰冷的尸体 

小时候的记忆不断涌现,可是想和至亲一起作的事情却再也只是 : “ 等一天” ,而且这天再也不会到来了

随着父亲的离开,妈妈也上大陆,男友因为吵架暂时冷静出走,女主第一次真的感受到自己真的是一个人,她辞去工作后更加觉得自己一直以来的独立其实只是自欺欺人,她其实只是依赖工作,把生活都寄托在工作上,一直都不知道怎样和自己相处,所以当她搬家认识了黄天乐 (女二) 后,他才纳闷为何自己如此失败,更不明白黄天乐为何一直沉浸在回忆里而不向前看

Related image

看似梦幻的黄天乐好像每天都在做梦,好像没有正面的去面对自己的未来,不过他只是 选择另一种方式看待自己的人生,仔细一看其实黄天乐的日记本是在她得知自己有了乳癌后才开始进行,女主对黄天乐只沉浸在回忆的判断也是因为看了日记本才如此断言,但是其实这是黄天乐记录自己一生最美好的回忆所能留下的印记,相对的不知未来在哪里的她选择只身去巴黎,做自己一直想作的事,也清楚自己的选择,其实他是向前看的人

个人观点是认为这2位快踏入30岁的女生其实并没有哪一个比较幸福或悲惨,他们都一样面对各自的难题,只是他们选择如何面对罢了,黄天乐看似无忧无虑,天性乐天开朗就和他名字一样,但不代表他一切一帆风顺,不过他选择积极的面对自己的问题。

女主做事独立果断,工作忙碌,爱情事业表面看起来丰收,但当他真的面对人生的关卡时,他却是压抑,消极和落寞的,所以他才不解为什么黄天乐在面对这么大的考验时,尤其还是一个人时候竟然还可以开心的生活

一切都只是面对问题时的心态,我们不能控制问题的发生,但我们可以选择面对问题时候的心态,人生就那么一次,你要选择开心的度过还是伤心的煎熬?

Image result for 29+1

当然要活成黄天乐那样,现实中真的没几个。。。所以舞台剧中其实是女导演一人分饰2个角色,恐怕黄天乐更加像是自己幻想出来的另一个自己或是理想中的自己吧 

《29+1》其实不止是针对30的女性,更多的是这世代的人的生活写照,在面对人生课题,哪怕是事业,家人和感情还是友情的处境,都算是很写实的。

只是社会对30代的女性的歧视历来总带着犀利的眼神,和刻板的断言30后女生的价值是多么的低,没有婚姻和爱情对30后的女性是多么的不利

Image result for 29+1 周秀娜

不过遗憾的是电影本身没正面的传达女主接下来如何面对30后的生活,或是30有代表什么,电影结尾只见女主越过女二屋子的巴黎铁塔墙壁和女二在巴黎相遇了,电影开始一切都进行的很流畅但是从女二出现后,梦幻式的生活就有点开始虎头蛇尾,匆匆结束电影的感觉

他就像是抛出了个问题,但是答案无解, 我本身不是很喜欢这种开放式的结局,或仔细的说,我不喜欢这种雷声大雨点小的制作,很没有心意,因为本来是一个很好的题材,就这样草草结束有点可惜 

也许因为是舞台剧和电影的规格不同,导演很难透过镜头传达信息,抑或是这个人生课题还是让我们自己去发掘好了,至少想表达的是大家必须知道自己想要怎样的生活还有时间不等人是真的 

至少这部电影道出一个很重要的点: 我原来不知道怎样和自己相处,这个是女主的旁白,当她真的只剩下自己时他才理解原来自己一直都在用忙碌的工作,下班后和不懂因为什么原因相聚的闺蜜打发时间,自己真的没事在家就睡觉来度过时间,仿佛自己和孤独占不上边,不过是自欺欺人罢了。

我想导演要传达的是30不一定要用社会设定的框架来生活,请你找回初衷,活成自己想要的样子。

注: 周秀娜演这种电影好多了,以后可以走这种路线,真的不用把自己绑在性感那一块的~

This is becoming a habit, nowadays I rather gather all the food photos and blog them in one post, i guess my lazy gene is functioning real well.

So obviously September is my month, and I can foresee there will be more food in the coming up.

sep1.jpg

sep2.jpg

Mum and dad went to bangkok for a short trip end of last month, and left only my brother and I who need to settle meal by our own which is rather unusual.

Well, i guess i become the responsible sister who bring my little brother for all the good food, lol

We had korean at Todam, Klang is lacking good korean food, for sure. 

sep3.jpg

After passing by this cafe few times finally able to try out - Food by fat cat....they serves good varieties of don though.

sep4.jpg

On the same day having food by fat cat, i attended a seminar with Chyi, discussing about the passion to pursuit dreams....wonder where is mine...

sep5.jpg

sep6.jpg

sep7.jpg

Then, had a better (slightly) korean food at Ampang after visited Singapore, went together with the buddies who went to Sg with me. 

Sigh, when the cook is no longer local, the food always turned bad.

sep8.jpg

Mooncake festival is approaching soon, and this year have slightly different moon cake =)

sep9.jpg

remember the durian bday cake at Moonlight cakehouse I had last year? Surprised that my technical chef colleague was able to make one too!

sep10.jpg

Then I also finally met up my online first female friend - Carlyn! Both of us are fan of fried chicken, and here we are!

sep11.jpg

BBQ chicken at Taman Desa actually just mehhhhhh, not really great, i think they might have ruin the brand from korea.

However, later we had high tea session at Breadfruits, quite happy that the passion fruit cake at Breadfruits are yummy too. Meaning Breadfruits not just serve good meal, they have nice cakes too.

sep12.jpg

Then, the famous brew house has finally come to Klang! Good that now we have more food options~

sep13.jpg

I also have this chance to visit my childhood all time favourite hananese chicken chop kopitiam, their chicken chop still taste great, although the portion size is getting smaller and also the price is spiking time to time.

sep14.jpg

Then so many postcards coming in, haha 1 is from myself all the way from Singapore, while the remain is from Jennifer, also posted to me while she was in Singapore with me. And bean kinda was forced by myself to send me one during her Shanghai trip lol.

sep15.jpg

She is detailed enough to paste a paper on back of the wooden postacard to ensure it will arrive safely to me, thanks friend!

sep16.jpg

Meal at <simple life> is getting usual in my family, not sure this is which attempt.

sep17.jpg

Finally I also get my puzzle book done! Indeed enjoying my life while my leg injured. 

sep18.jpg

Yes, i hurt my leg during yoga class, and hopefully it will become better soon.
