即使輪迴存在,人間風景幾度變換,也無法擺脫國族身份的惘然。為了爭取獨立,上世紀五、六十年代起,馬來西亞共產黨在叢林打了幾十年游擊戰。當有游擊隊成員誕下嬰兒,為求生存,隨即便要把嬰兒送出森林。廖克發繼紀錄片《不即不離》(2016)、《還有一些樹》後,與陳雪甄合導,改以劇情片切入馬共的叢林游擊鬥爭。兩代之間,一個是馬共游擊隊隊員誕下的小孩,一個是在祖國不被承認、改赴台灣唸大學的青年。猶如園藝的嫁接技術,在廖慶松任剪接指導下,電影接合歷時性的古今兩段時空,以及共時性的各種正在台灣掙扎求存的邊緣群體。假如已經失根,嘗試落地到陌生而親切的異地去,又是否能夠建立美好的將來?《菠蘿蜜》展現出遷移和流動之際的情緒煎熬。

Even if reincarnation existed, the myriad changes in our world would not wipe away the perplexity of national identity. In order to fight for independence, the Malayan Communist Party engaged in decades of guerilla warfare since the 1950s/60s. When guerilla members gave birth, they would send the babies out of the jungle immediately for the sake of the newborns’ survival. After his documentaries Absent Without Leave (2016) and The Tree Remembers, Lau Kek Huat joined forces with Vera Chen as co-directors for this drama about the struggles of the Malayan guerillas in the jungle. Between the two generations, one is the offspring of guerilla fighters while the other is a young person studying in a Taiwanese university after being rejected by his home country. In the hands of seasoned editor Liao Ching-song, the film fuses the historical timelines of both generations seamlessly while unveiling the synchronicity of the various marginalized groups struggling in Taiwan. If one lost his/her roots and attempt to start over in a foreign land, would it still be possible to build a bright future? Boluomi displays the emotional torment at the moment of migration and traversing.
