[7.6](法國)沉默之海 Le Silence de la Mer.1949

Storyline
1941 in a small town in Nazi occupied France. Against the will of its elderly male and his adult niece residents, the Nazis commandeer a house for one of their officers, Lt. Werner von Ebrennac, to live in for as long as he is in the area on Nazi business. As a figurative and literal silent protest against the Nazis and the officer, the uncle and niece do whatever is required of them while the officer is in their house, however they do not acknowledge his presence, living largely in silence whenever he is around. The officer treats the housing situation with care, like he is a guest. Although not a nightly occurrence, the officer begins an evening routine with his reluctant hosts: in his civilian clothes, he knocks on the door of the room in which they have convened for the evening, walking in shortly thereafter knowing that no acknowledgment will be made for him to enter, he visits with them for no more than five minutes before he bids them a good evening as he exits. During these visits, he speaks reverently about, among other things, culture – music and literature in particular as he is a composer and musician – his national pride, his love of France, and what he hopes will emerge from the war, namely a strong and free France, stronger than it was before the war, and the marriage between the French and German cultures which will enrich the lives of all Europeans. All the while, he makes no expectations from them, either to listen, or to answer if they are indeed listening. At the end of what ends up being his six month stay at the house, he does end up having a profound effect on the uncle and niece, despite that effect being largely unacknowledged, as his stay in France has a profound effect on him, opening up his eyes to the reality of the war based largely on his first ever visit into Paris.

劇情簡介
本片為梅爾維爾處女作,法國新浪潮導演御用攝影師昂黎德卡掌鏡。

根據梅爾維爾二次大戰期間秘密發表的作品改編,描繪法國一位作家和姪女的住所為納粹軍官徵用,兩人以沉默表達對納粹的鄙視,反而德國軍官不管如何被漠視,始終維持親切有理的態度,父女兩人逐漸對他改觀。電影優雅獨白和完美構圖,循序漸進讓觀眾認同軍官孤獨而哀愁的形象,雖為梅爾維爾的處女作,卻已難掩其令人傾倒的大師風範。

1940年,德軍的鐵蹄踏上了法國土地,讓她滿目瘡痍,戰火雖沒有擾亂法國鄉間相依為命的老人和姪女,但一名德國軍官卻倏地打破了他們寧靜的生活,與他們合住。出於自尊和立場,三人始終對彼此保持沉默,但隨著時間推移,這名在戰前原是音樂家的德國人始終溫文有禮且對屋主充滿敬重,融解彼此心防。同在屋簷下的一對男女悄然產生真摯情感。然而,巨大的隔閡和沉默橫亙在兩人之間,他們如何處理這段生不逢時的愛情?
