偶像劇裡頭的「剩女」,卸了眼鏡,套上洋裝就會立馬變身大美女,接著只管在完結篇前和小了好幾歲的「高富帥」攜手奔往幸福的明日。然而現實生活大抵不會是這樣美滿的公式,至少,紀錄片導演周東彥的「剩女」朋友們並不是。

是這樣的認知落差,讓他忍不住開始拿起攝影機探向身旁的這些大齡未婚女,溫柔地為她們揭掉「剩女」的標籤,用「閨蜜」的距離,看望她們真實的生活、工作和感情究竟是怎麼一回事。

「剩女」們可能不屬大美女,卻在鏡頭裡流瀉了各自奇異的魅力,讓我們情不自禁地跟著她們跌宕起伏,在哭笑了幾輪之後,突然領悟到,無論剩女不剩女,是人,都會有各自的堅強與脆弱,歡騰與寂寞。喔對了,寂寞不等於悲傷,資深「剩女」如是說。

 

Nowadays when you flick on the TV, many channels show drama series with female pop stars playing roles of so-called “leftover ladies”—single women who are well past the conventional marrying age. These shows spin a web of fantasies, reassuring the audience that someday the right person will come along and sweep you off your feet. But in reality, does the right person always exist?

 

Meet four Taiwanese women, the actual “leftover ladies” fighting to stay breathing in a somewhat stifling society. Since 2012, their friend in common, Chou Tung-yen, has been “stalking” them, capturing on film moments of these women’s daily lives.

 

Through the usually firm yet frequently hesitant steps of these leftover ladies, this documentary short prompts us to ask ourselves: Do we also feel the anxiety that comes along with being single? Are we aware of the isolation that is none but our own?

導演的話

 

我拿起攝影機走進了幾位親密朋友的生活中。我和她旅行、上課,我跟她去看醫生、去算命,我在熱門的路跑活動追逐著她,我和她去迪士尼過生日,我為她策畫了一場婚紗拍攝。我想錄下她們爽朗的笑,我想拍下她們專注的身影,我想描繪她們一個人的生活。因為我知道,除了她們,還有千千萬萬的剩女們,這樣活著。我想記下屬於這個世代的孤獨。

 

The four women are outgoing and positive about life, they are accomplished in their field of expertise; yet just by being single and unmarried, they all don the same label of “leftover ladies” and they are my close friends. I decided to pick up my camera and walk into their lives—traveling, working, having their fortune told, jogging, attending weddings, going to church, discussing their views on relationships, defining “the one”—and attempt to piece together lightheartedly the happiness, sadness and loneliness they have undergone in the past two years. Because I know, there are millions of ladies sharing the same label with them and I am trying to memorize the loneliness and solitude of our generation.
