由港日兩地獨立電影人合製的懸疑片《落葉殺人事件》,看似一部因極低預算而捉襟見肘的寫實作品,實則魔幻地呈現了跨越地域和年代的青年群像。四位鄉鎮少年無聊度日,因着和也叔叔的公司關照才得以謀生。他們各自投射出不同的形象,生活當中暗藏有形(霸凌、性侵)或無形(階級、家庭牽絆)的問題,角色互相拉扯,最後對頹敗生活的無力感終於爆發。疑幻疑真的謀殺事件背後,《落》真正着墨的是新生代的絕望與孤寂,他們亟求愛慾,卻因環境而扭曲人性,生活中的暴力問題、命運的牢籠均活現眼前。雖說《落》的製作因有限成本而變得相當困難,但影像以美感彌補、敍事多以聲音主導的手法卻巧妙地克服了窘境。遏抑、無奈之感低迴的調子一方面建立人物之間難以言狀的疏離與冷酷,同時配合流暢而魔幻的剪接、萎靡的配樂,暗裏呼應其主線的設定,使電影更為偏鋒駭俗。

Co-produced by filmmakers from Japan and Hong Kong, The Murder of Osio is seemingly a low-budget thriller with a strong sense of realism. Yet it wondrously manages to portray young people regardless of geographical or generational differences. In a small town, a gang of four feckless young men works at a company that belongs to a member’s uncle. These distinct personalities all face their explicit and implicit problems, such as bullying, sexual abuse, class issues and family problems. Eventually their helpless existence is about to reach a boiling point. Behind the mysterious murder, the story’s real focus is on the young generation’s hopelessness and loneliness. Their environment turns their desire for affection into a distortion of humanity. That has manifested in the violence of everyday life and the trap of fate. Although this production is limited by the lack of monetary resources, the film is complemented by its exquisite images and the multiple narrative viewpoints. The subtle agony of its characters establish their inexplicable detachment, while the editing and musical score slyly echoes the core of this uncompromising picture.
