Text Response Q&A

乐学刊VCE电影
本期的乐学刊小编带大家来看的VCE电影是由好莱坞著名老戏骨兼导演的Client Eastwood改编的真人传记-Invictus (中文译:成事在人)本片曾获得2010年第82届奥斯卡金像奖的最佳男主(Morgan Freeman)和最佳男配(Matt Damon)提名。

影片“Invictus”是一个拉丁词汇,在英文中的意思为Invincible (不可战胜的意思)。同时也是电影主人公曼德拉成多次默念的一首诗的名字。本片剧本根据传记《Playing the Enemy: Nelson Mandela and the Game That Made A nation》改编。

讲述的是南非总统曼德拉如何在遭受牢狱之灾之后,成功竞选总统一职。由于南非被选为1995年橄榄球世界杯的东道主这一背景展开故事….

Q: How does demonstrate the ways leaders can challenge and change ingrained attitudes?
A: The question is about leadership, so Mandela and pienaaer are good examples to use. For Mandela, you can use the TS (topice sentence) put in the other chat group: Eastwood portrays Mandela as a courageous leader who fought for unity in a divided South Africa. For Pienaar, it’s easier to say that as captain of the SpringbokRugby Team, he leads by example to motivate his team to win the Rugby World Cup agaisnt all odds.

Also you can talk about leadership, achieving the impossible (both in terms of winning the Rugby World Cup and achieving national unity in South Africa), forgiveness and reconciliation which is Mandela’s idea/vision for the country.

For example, Eastwood portrays Mandela as a formidable leader with the foresight to champion reconciliation despite deeply entrenched animosity in South Africa.

Q: ‘Clint Eastwood’s film, Invictus suggests that individuals and nations are not bound by the past.’ Discuss

A: ‘not bound by the past’ means can change and can be transformed. You can take a character-based approach, meaning one paragraph on Mandela, one on pienaar and one on South Africa in general.

You could also follow the structure of the plot in Invictus and you can show a contrast. At the start the black and white characters showed a lot of suspicion towards each other.

For example, Jason/Linga vs Etienne, or Mandela’s staff in the Union Building, or the NSC wants to use every reason to remove the Springboks, Siphp rejects the Springbok jersey. Then in the middle, talk about Mandela’s speeches that use inclusive language to motivate people to change their attitudes.

Also can talk about pienaar and how the springboks went and played Rugby with the local children.

Last, you should talk about how the film ends with a big celebration when the springboks with the Rugby World Cup and Eastwood focuses on iconic moments of celebration. Blacks and whites to suggest that just as Rugby is no longer a symbol of apartheid-era racial divisions, South African national unity has been achieved “one team, one country’.
