映画『グレート・ギャツビー』

『グレート・ギャツビー』を読んでから、無性に映画の方も見たくなって、DVDをレンタルして見た。

実は大昔、TVの深夜放送でやってたのを見たのだけど、ギャツビー役のロバート・レッドフォードが対岸の灯りを見つめていたシーンくらいしか記憶に残っていなかった。小説を読むにはちょうど良かったのだけど。

ギャツビーやトムの豪邸、車、ファッション等、原作に忠実に、ということは実際の1920年代を忠実にということだろうけど、映像化してあって、圧倒された。特にギャツビー邸でのパーティーのシーンは、乏しいオカダの想像力を遙かに超えていて(笑)、大規模かつ豪華だったので驚いた。

この映画が製作されたのは74年だけど、古さを感じさせない、本当に美しい映像だった。将来次世代ディスクで発売されたら、我が家の環境を整えてもう1度見てみたいなあ。

レッドフォードはやはり本当にハンサムだった。もう少し、陰りとか内に秘めた野望とかを表現してほしかった気はするけど。デイジー役のミア・ファローも原作のイメージどおりだった。

しかしストーリーに関して言うと、映画でも小説同様ニックの視点で描かれているのだけど、ナレーションもモノローグも全くないので、この物語の持つ深さをもう一つ味わうことができなかった。その点が残念で、原作を読んでいるのとないのとでは、この映画の理解度はかなり違うものになると思う。でも、全体としてはかなりいい映画だと思う。

村上春樹さんも、『「ひとつ、村上さんでやってみるか」…… 』の質問312で、この映画について、「あまり期待しないで見たのですが、意外によくできているなあという印象を受けました。けっこう感心しました」と書いてあった。

また、この映画の脚本をフランシス・フォード・コッポラが担当しているのだけど、『「シナリオをじっくり読んでみると、「よく考えて削るべきところは削り、残すべきところは残してある」と感心してしまいます。」とも。

オカダさん こんにちは。
本を読むと映画見たくなるってありますよね~。

ギャツビー、端折り版を読んで全然面白くなかったので、映画にももちろん興味がわきませんでした。でも、オカダさんはいたくお気に入りのご様子だし、村上さんも絶賛だし、あんな端折り版だけでギャツビーを判断してる私は損してるんでしょうか。。。

ciao*さん、こんばんは。
端折り版というのはどんなのですか?
村上さんの訳というのを気にせず読んでみたら、たぶん面白いと感じるんじゃないかと思います。

>本を読むと映画見たくなるってありますよね~。
ありますよね。がっかりすることの方が多いですけどね。「トニー滝谷」は例外でしたが。

『ギャツビー』も最近リメイクされましたよね…。
そちらのほうは観ていません(笑)。
やっぱりオリジナルにかなわないよなぁって思っちゃうんです。
それに最近のハリウッドの画はCGばっかりでなんかしっくり来なくて。
あのギャツビー邸のパーティーシーンには、子ども心に憧れたものです。
だから、『ギャツビー』と言えばあの場面ばかり(爆
懐かしいな。もっとちゃんと観てみようかな。
もちろん本も読まないと。ああ焦ります。

ヤヤーさん、こんばんは。

リメイクって、2001年にアメリカでTVドラマとして製作されたもののことですか。NHKBSハイビジョンでは放映されたようですね。機会があったら見てみたいです。

パーティーシーンを見て、やっぱりアメリカの金持ちはすごいなあと思いました。ヒルズ族(もう死語かな?)の合コンとは訳が違いますものね。

とうとう師走。やり残したことがいっぱいあって、確かに焦りますね(^_^;)。

オカダさん こんばんは。
>端折り版というのはどんなのですか?
原作をやさしい英語で書きなおしたものです。なので、厳密には私はちゃんとしたギャツビーを知らないわけです。

>村上さんの訳というのを気にせず読んでみたら
うーん。。。それが無理なほど翻訳にも村上さん色が出てる気がするんですよね~。

Posted by: ciao* | 2006.12.01 at 10:20 PM

ciao*さん、こんばんは。
原作の英語はかなり難しいそうですね。村上さんも、英文科の学部生じゃむりだろうと書いてました。その端折り版、ストーリーを端折ってるのならやっぱり読んだうちに入らないかもしれませんね。

ciao*さんなら、がんばって原書に挑戦してみるのもいいかもしれませんね。
