Product Information


導演:王天林
Director: Wong Tin Lam

       愛情不過是一件普通的玩意;
       男人不過是一件消遣的東西﹗
           是男人我都喜歡,
           是男人我都拋棄﹗

  本片是素有「才女」之稱的編劇秦亦孚(即秦雨)特別為葛蘭度身訂造的劇本,以比才(Bizet)的經典歌劇《卡門》(Carmen)和約瑟.馮.史丹堡(Josef von Sternberg)的《藍天使》(The Blue Angel)為藍本,描寫一名野性難馴、但卻顛倒眾生的歌星,和鬱鬱不得志的知識青年的愛情悲劇,套在六十年代初期中西文化互聚、但卻貧富懸殊的香港社會中,竟恰到好。影片特邀了在日本早已享有盛名的作曲家服部良一撰曲,配合著王天林的純熟導技、費伯夷的精緻美術,視聽效果美不勝收。但全片精彩的,還是葛蘭的表演,舉手投足全是戲,一顰一笑教人神為之奪。稱本片為香港電影史的傑作之一,絕不為過。
  Adapted from Bizet's opera Carmen and Josef von Sternberg's The Blue Angel, The Wild, Wild Rose is undoubtedly one of the classics in the Hong Kong cinema in every sense of the Word. Grace Chang (Ge Lan) give her most mesmerizing performance as a sensuous singer who seduces and destroys (Both herself and the man she loves). She is nicely complemented by Zhang Yang as the inexperienced piano player who falls for her. The stylized production design and the cinematography of the film also set a high standard among the films of its kind. The songs by Japanese composer R. Hitori are memorable. But most surprising of all is the immaculate Mise-En-Scene of veteran filmmaker Wang Tianlin. All in all, a film not to be missed and one which deserves to be seen over and ever again!

Ge Lan's best !! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Ge Lan's acting was never regarded as an actress as great as Lucilla You, Lin Dai or Betty Loh Ti but in this film, no one can play better than her.

With so many good songs and scenes for her, you will love to hate her after watching it.

JAJAMBOOOOOOOOOOOOO !!!!! BRAVA! BRAVA! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
By the time "Wild Wild Rose" showed up in the theatres
in the 60s, Ge Lan (Grace Chang) fans are ready for another "Sock it to them" performance from the finest
singer-actress of the time. Mesmerized by her work in hits like "Mambo Girl","Air Hostess", Cathay was all
out in providing a GREAT singing/acting role for her to
display her talents, not only was she to sing pop songs, she also get the chance to sing two arias from
well known opera, "Carmen" and "Madame Butterfly". One
can see she meet all these challenges in flying colors.
"Wild Wild Rose" is the first musical FILM NOIR Hongkong came up with (written up in the New York Film
Society publication "FILM COMMENT"). This film is growing in cult status now that more people can see it on this DVD release. In answer to the question---who
won BEST ACTRESS that year in the Asian Film Festival ?
It was Lin Dai (her 3rd award) for "Les Belles"--does
it matter after all these years ? See both movies and
judge for yourself. For me, Ge Lan's "JAJAMBOOOOOOOO"
will always get the biggest "BRAVA ", "BRAVISSIMA" from
me !

A True Classic Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I have never been a fan of Grace Chang for superficial reasons. Her nose was too flat & her voice was too high. Moreover she was with Cathay which was in my opinion , inferior to Shaw Brothers in the quality of their productions.
Tonight a friend gave me the dvd of THE WILD WILD ROSE to watch & I must say Grace Chang in all her splendour & acting glory took my breath away. The 1st 15 minutes was hard as the film was shot in dreadful black & white. But none of that mattered & Grace Chang managed to keep me glued to my TV screen for the entire length of the movie. She is one hell of an actress & whoever deprived her of an acting award that year did her a great injustice. Buy this dvd! I know I will look forward to more of her movies from now on. And yes, her singing voice is not bad either.

Grace Kok Lan's Super pewrformance Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
We have seen Grace Kok Lan as the educated lady in the rich family in " The Sun, The Moon and The Star" . It is really exiting to see Grace Kom Lan as the dancing girl in the night club in " The Wild, Wild Rose". these are completely different characters that require tremendous talent in acting to carry out these 2 roles successfully. I have to say that Grace Kom Lan was really perfect and she could interpret 100 percent the characters in the roles that she played. Another unique plus for Grace was her talents in singing and dancing. They were so wonderful that she could interpret any type of songs with much feeling and inspiration. She had couples of songs in this movie that really nice to enjoy, these songs were even more difficult to interpret than the songs she sang in " The Mambo Girl". She really deserved to be the best actress in film festival if the movie " The Wild, Wild Rose" was nominated in 1960.

We are looking forward to faster release of Cathay's Library to match up with the release of Shaw Brothers which goes much faster. Cathay and Shaw Brothers were both excellent in producing movies with quality and maintained competitive hand in hand during the 60'. It would be still a big miss if you only enjoy movie of one without the other.
Go faster, Cathay !.
