電影製造歷史 The Future of the Past: Who Makes History ?
儀式 The Ceremony
大島渚（1932-2013）Nagisa Oshima｜1971｜日本Japan｜123 min｜劇情片｜輔12+
Two years after the end of World War II, Masuo and his mother are repatriated from Manchuria and returned to stay at the Sakurada family estate where family members come together only during such meticulously observed ceremonies as funerals and weddings. As the heir to the family line, little Masuo is then forcefully separated from his mother, and put in the hands of his grandfather, Kasuomi, the patriarch of the family. He felt increasingly powerless during the time of his mother’s death. The burden of manhood and the sexual awakening that he felt for both his aunt and her daughter only add to the confusion. His despair reaches its depth when he was made to go through a brideless marriage ceremony at his oppressive grandfather's insistence. The Ceremony is a brutal critique of the postwar Japanese society that resembles the incestuous family which looks prosperous on the outside, yet rotten from within.

One of the most important figures in world cinema, Nagisa Oshima’s films deal with difficult subject matters that serve as a critique as much of the contemporary Japanese society as of the darker side of human nature. Equally provocative is his unique and original visual and narrative approach to films that leaves the audiences both shaken yet mesmerized.
