YesAsia Editorial Description

For the past 30 years, the bustling Zhongshan Road Night Market has been managed by one person: Ninth Uncle. Using his rough but effective ways, Ninth Uncle helped transform the market from a few temporary stalls to a famous food street teeming with over 300 stalls. Directed by Wu Jianxin, this documentary explores the grassroots lives and happenings of Zhongshan Road with Ninth Uncle as its representative figure. With a lifetime of personal ups and downs behind him, the elderly statesman continues to treat the market as his home, monitoring its activities every night and mingling with his market buddies. With Zhongshan Road slated for redevelopment, however, the heyday of the Night Market is about to come to a close.

30年來,這個魚龍混雜的夜市只有一個人能管理,這個人就是九叔。

以夜市管理員九叔為代表,這部影片展現了市井人物的生存狀態,以及個體命運在時代變遷中的波折流轉。

九叔,綽號“夜市市長”,以臨時工的身份掌管中山路夜市三十年。夜市魚龍混雜,九叔用江湖手段管理夜市,粗礪卻有效。在他的傾力打理下,夜市由原來的幾個流動小吃攤發展到三百多個美食攤位。南寧中山路由此成為遠近聞名的美食街。夜市繁榮,個體戶擁戴,加上城區領導倚重,所以九叔在夜市地位穩固。雖然年近七十,九叔仍繼續以夜市為家。每當夜幕降臨,九叔照例身穿制服、腰佩警棍,帶領手下坐鎮巡視,風雨無阻。臨近午夜,九叔叫上夜市的老兄弟喝酒打牌,然後趁著酒勁招搖過市。

九叔在夜市志得意滿,家庭生活卻不順心。他早年身世坎坷,中年經歷多次離婚,晚年又與兒女不和。所幸的是,現任老婆小楊性格溫和忍讓,對九叔的生活悉心照料。適逢中秋節,九叔帶小楊回新家祭祖。一家人吃飯時,九叔勸兒子踏實一點,早點結婚。結果兒子不予理會,父子不歡而散。

百年老街中山路,白天街面殘破,晚上卻是黃金地。在人聲喧雜中,各色市井人物不論出身各施所能,各謀各的生路。夜市個體戶六叔,與九叔同為中山路老街坊,幾十年的酒肉兄弟。老哥倆意氣相投,幾乎天天碰頭打牌喝酒。六叔從小混跡江湖,年輕時打牌出老千,曾因賭博被勞教三年。經營服裝生意失利後,六叔回到中山路做餐飲,至今已超過二十年。個體戶雞姐的老牌雞粥店,越晚生意越好。幾年前雞姐賭博輸了二百八十萬。花了一年多時間清還債務後,雞姐重整門面,準備東山再起。

但是,三十年的夜市已走到了盡頭。政府提出中山路改造方案,改造後,以美食大排檔為主的夜市將不復存在。中山路的拆遷影響了夜市的客流量。六叔原本生意紅火的店面已被拆除,只好帶著老婆和幾個工人沿街擺攤。一些老牌店家也貼出了搬遷告示。九叔曾有重振夜市的計畫,無奈大勢已去,只能看著自己打拼一生的江湖領地日漸衰落。

春節來臨,中山路又有幾棟沿街的騎樓被拆除。讓九叔為之一振的是,與中山路毗鄰的共和路變成了夜市,並歸九叔管理。九叔開始招收新的管理員,帶領手下封路整頓秩序,在新的轄區樹立威信。同時,夜市個體戶們也迎來一年中最忙碌的節日⋯⋯
