3Film Screenings | 怀旧电影放映会

Sri Menanti

 
Date: Friday, 9 Dec
Time: 8pm (Please arrive 15mins before the programme commences)
Venue: Gallery Theatre, Basement, National Museum of Singapore
Admission fee: Free with registration. Please click here to register.

Story: Chua Boon Hean
Cast: Zaiton, Paul Chang Chung, Tang Dan, Salleh Kamil, S. Kadarisman
Duration: 103 mins
1958  / Digital  Beta / PG
In Malay with English Subtitles

Produced by Shaw Brothers and directed by Phani Majumdar, Sri Menanti is a film about an interracial romance that faced opposition from close-minded parents and the forces of racial and religious conservatism. Malay female star Zaiton and Hong Kong leading man, Paul Chang, take on the roles of the star-crossed lovers. Under Majumdar’s lyrical direction, Sri Menanti is imbued with moments of poetry that perfectly encapsulate the pictorial ideals of Nanyang at the time, making this film an underrated gem in the annals of Malay film production in Singapore.

Parents’ Hearts is widely considered to be one of the best Hong Kong films of all time. The film follows a modern nuclear family’s struggle to secure a better future for its children. The film is set in harsh post-war conditions, where the father finds himself unemployed when his opera troupe is forced to close due to the bad economy and dwindling popularity of Cantonese opera. Working at the peak of his directorial career, Chun Kim’s tender rendition of the family’s predicament is perfectly complemented by opera superstar Ma Si-tsang’s heartfelt performance.

导演:秦剑
主演:马师曾、黄曼梨、林家声、阮兆辉
粤语(附中英字幕)

《父母心》是香港广受好评的佳作。这部影片诉说着一个现代核心家庭为子女争取更好的前途而经历的挣扎。艰难的战后生活充斥着整部影片,经济萧条导致粤剧逐渐没落,剧中的父亲也因戏班倒闭而失业。导演秦剑刻画出剧中一家人的苦境,和粤剧巨星马师曾真挚的表演相辅相成,两人合作天衣无缝。
