青春又歡樂的阿飄電影《死也要畢業》

人生的境遇真的很奇妙,某天晚上的特映和隔天上午的試映加起來,就是最好笑鬼片和最嚇的鬼片。好笑的鬼片正是即將上映的西班牙電影《死也要畢業》(Ghost Graduation)。
西班牙電影一向很適合國人的脾胃,輕鬆詼諧中帶有感動。《死也要畢業》裡面的阿飄一點都不恐怖,只是復古了一點(活在1986年嘛),當他們看到現在的MP3 PLAYER覺得很奇妙,甚至感慨以前用鉛筆倒帶,現在派不上用場了!這是聽TAPE年代,為了把帶子倒回去,以鉛筆穿進TAPE孔,倒帶(有些隨身聽沒有倒帶功能,而且倒帶很"費"電)。 

片中一開始出現1980年代非常經典的舞會狀況:跳排舞,然後DJ快速切換成慢舞。而本片最經典的慢舞歌,即是Bonnie Tyler的〈Turn Around (Total Eclipse Of The Heart)〉,它是1983年度BILLBOARD排行第六名的歌曲,搭配劇情,時而好笑時而浪漫,真是跨時空的好音樂。 

說起劇情,就是一位看得見阿飄,也是我們俗稱有的人(後來當了老師)保受困擾的成長過程。西方人對這種人的處理方式,就是送去看心理醫生(嗯,跟有些朋友很像,出國丟了魂,或阿飄跟了回來,篤信科學的家庭就會說要不要去看醫生),如果是生長在台灣傳統家庭,可能會說去廟裡拜拜,求神明,看看可以怎麼處理能恢復正常人生活。 

不幸主角莫德斯托長在西班牙,而他平常的行徑就跟電影癡大學教授口中形容的有陰陽眼的學姊一樣,在我們眼中看起來直直走過去沒有問題的路,她會繞著走,莫德斯托也常會跟阿飄聊天,因為他分不清楚說舌的對象是阿飄還是人(話說真正有陰陽眼的人,絕大部分只有小時候分不出來,長大之後都知道哪個是阿飄哪個是人,嗯,至少穿著打扮不會相同,更別有很多是"看"不大清楚的)。 

片中資深阿飄,生前也是心理醫生的阿飄提出一個理論,阿飄滯留在人間不走,是因為猶有遺願尚未達成。 

《死也要畢業》用很可愛的方式──鬼眼中的世界與一般人眼中的世界交錯呈現鬧鬼,教人哈哈大笑,特別是在莫德斯托眼中的「鬧鬼」一點也不嚇的狀況下,形成有趣的對比,讓這些二十年前的鬼學生變得可愛有人性,鋪陳了為鬼學生開課理所當然的情節,也顯彰了教師「有教無類」的偉大情操。 

《死也要畢業》很阿飄也很不阿飄,「Turn Around」講的好似失戀情人的寂寞,也好似不受關注的學生或阿飄的心情,就讓我們回味一下這首歌。〈Turn Around (Total Eclipse Of The Heart)〉歌詞如下: 

Turnaround, every now and then I get a 
little bit lonely and you're never coming around 
Turnaround, Every now and then I get a 
little bit tired of listening to the sound of my tears 
Turnaround, Every now and then I get a 
little bit nervous that the best of all the years have gone by 
Turnaround, Every now and then I get a 
little bit terrified and then I see the look in your eyes 
Turnaround bright eyes, Every now and 
then I fall apart 
Turnaround bright eyes, Every now and 
then I fall apart 

Turnaround, Every now and then I get a 
little bit restless and I dream of something wild 
Turnaround, Every now and then I get a 
little bit helpless and I'm lying like a child in your arms 
Turnaround, Every now and then I get a 
little bit angry and I know I've got to get out and cry 
Turnaround, Every now and then I get a 
little bit terrified but then I see the look in your eyes 
Turnaround bright eyes, Every now and 
then I fall apart 
Turnaround bright eyes, Every now and 
then I fall apart 

And I need you now tonight 
And I need you more than ever 
And if you'll only hold me tight 
We'll be holding on forever 
And we'll only be making it right 
Cause we'll never be wrong together 
We can take it to the end of the line 
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time 
I don't know what to do and I'm always in the dark 
We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks 
I really need you tonight 
Forever's gonna start tonight 
Forever's gonna start tonight 

Once upon a time I was falling in love 
But now I'm only falling apart 
There's nothing I can do 
A total eclipse of the heart 
Once upon a time there was light in my life 
But now there's only love in the dark 
Nothing I can say 
A total eclipse of the heart 

Turnaround bright eyes 
Turnaround bright eyes 
Turnaround, every now and then I know 
you'll never be the boy you always you wanted to be 
Turnaround, every now and then I know 
you'll always be the only boy who wanted me the way that I am 
Turnaround, every now and then I know 
there's no one in the universe as magical and wonderous as you 
Turnaround, every now and then I know 
there's nothing any better and there's nothing I just wouldn't do 
Turnaround bright eyes, Every now and 
then I fall apart 
Turnaround bright eyes, Every now and 
then I fall apart 

And I need you now tonight 
And I need you more than ever 
And if you'll only hold me tight 
We'll be holding on forever 
And we'll only be making it right 
Cause we'll never be wrong together 
We can take it to the end of the line 
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time 
I don't know what to do and I'm always in the dark 
We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks 
I really need you tonight 
Forever's gonna start tonight 
Forever's gonna start tonight 

Once upon a time I was falling in love 
But now I'm only falling apart 
There's nothing I can do 
A total eclipse of the heart 
Once upon a time there was light in my life 
But now there's only love in the dark 
Nothing I can say 
A total eclipse of the heart
