導演的話 Director’s Statement

在我的前一部作品《完全選舉手冊》裡,有一幕是志工們八卦議論著競選總部外頭一位有精神病的女子。「你看那個站在對街的女人,她精神有問題。她還是正常人的時候,留著長頭髮而且有大胸部,她還稱自己是川崎的瑪莉蓮夢露…」他們這樣說著。

從以上的談話裡可以看出,「精神病患」總是「正常人」之間好奇、尋求刺激和嘲笑的主題,他們不被視為人的同類,而是一種來自另一個世界、碰巧出現在我們面前的生物。在精神病人與健康者之間,彷彿有張透明的簾子將人們隔開,大多數健康的人,都覺得精神疾病的世界與他們的生活一點關係都沒有…

In my previous documentary film CAMPAIGN, there is a scene where  volunteers gossip about a 『psychotic woman』 standing right outside the  election campaign headquarters in Kawasaki, Japan.

『See that woman standing across the street? She’s psychotic. When she  was still sane, she had long hair and big tits. She called herself  the Marilyn Monroe of Kawasaki,』 they say.
As seen in this conversation, 『psychotic people』 are often the subject of  curiosity, excitement, and ridicule, among healthy people. They are  not considered to be fellow human beings but some kind of creatures  from another world who occasionally appear in front of us. There  seems to be a transparent curtain that divides healthy and mentally  ill people. Most healthy people see the world of mental illness as  irrelevant to their lives.

評論 Press

想田導演的這部「觀察映畫」,對於我們慣於將精神病患者與健康者劃分邊界的作法提出了深切的質疑。

-導演 河瀨直美

看這部電影時,我每五分鐘微笑一次,卻也哭了三回。這無疑地是一部傑出的作品。獻給那些無法不對於靈魂的無形與神秘而起敬的人們。

-精神科醫師 Shuhei Oyama

本片的質量與力量,在當前世界上都可說是一部相當獨特的電影,它表現出的勇氣和人性是跨越國界的。這些精神病患者都是相當有才華的人,他們擁有人類的尊嚴和靈魂。身體會被摧毀,但我們的靈魂永遠不滅,想田導演清楚地瞭解這一點。這是一部擁有驚人品質的迷人電影。

-捷克導演 Vojtech Jasny (《我的父老鄉親 All My Good Countrymen》)

非常偉大而精彩的電影,但也讓觀眾看得揪心。這是我看過最令人心碎的故事之一,而且真的使我掉下淚來。

-影集《銀河飛龍》編劇 David B. Carren

This observational film by Soda really questions the conventional boundary that separates the mentally ill and healthy people.
-Naomi Kawase, Film Director

Watching MENTAL, I smiled every 5 minutes, and cried 3 times. Without a doubt, it is a masterpiece. It is meant for people who can’t help revering the human soul that is formless and mysterious.
-Dr. Shuhei Oyama, Psychiatrist

It is the unique film in the whole world of this quality and power, with courage and humanity to cross the border. These mental patients are talented people. They have human dignity. They have human soul. Body can be damaged but soul can never be damaged. And Soda understands this very well. It is a fascinating film with amazing quality.
-Vojtech Jasny, Film Director (ALL MY GOOD COUNTRY MEN)

Great work. Marvelous movie. But an agony to watch. It was one of the most heartbreaking things I’ve ever seen. I wanted to cry. And I did.
– David B. Carren, Writer of STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION
