劇情[编辑]

1979年的某一晚,貨車司機湯瑪士(盧克·福特)來到西澳大利亞州的丹皮爾。在進入小鎮裡的酒吧後,他看到一群人影,其中一個人握著一支槍。他以為自己目睹了一場謀殺案而衝進另一個房間,在那裡他看到一個人正試著將一個看起來生了病的狗(Koko)放到地上。在湯瑪士的面前,這群人無法替這隻狗安樂死,因而回到了酒吧的吧台。
一名叫傑克.柯林斯的小鎮名人告訴他說這隻狗的名字叫做紅狗(Red Dog)並開始敘述起牠的傳奇故事。初到丹皮爾,這隻狗與許多哈默斯利鋼鐵廠的礦工結交成為朋友,這些人主要的工作是開採鐵礦石。每一位礦工都向湯瑪士訴說他們與紅狗的故事,在這個階段,紅狗沒有主人,牠是屬於工廠裡每一個人的。
接著其中一個人說,有一個叫約翰.葛蘭的美國人(喬許魯卡斯飾)後來成為了紅狗的主人。約翰是一個公車司機,負責開往哈默斯利鋼鐵廠的路線,後來他也跟工廠裡的秘書萳茜(瑞秋泰勒飾)開始一段浪漫史。在丹皮爾生活兩年後,他向萳茜求婚。在求婚那一晚,約翰囑咐紅狗,要牠在萳茜的車屋回來之前都要待在家裡。
隔天一早,約翰騎著機車從萳茜的車屋返途時,在路上發生了意外。約翰的意外打擊了小鎮中的每個人,當中也包括萳茜,而他們因而忘了紅狗的存在。在葬禮的三天後,他們發現紅狗仍然待在約翰要他待著的位子。三週後,紅狗決定啟程去尋找約翰,牠以哈默斯利鋼鐵廠開始為第一個地點,接著是酒吧及其他約翰可能會去的地方,直到所有丹皮爾的地方都找過了。牠接著開始橫越包括從柏斯到達爾文的皮爾布拉地區(位於澳洲西北部)。甚至還有傳言說紅狗也搭上往日本的船,只為了找尋約翰。最後,牠感到一陣悲哀,因此牠決定回到丹皮爾。一到丹皮爾,牠便來到萳茜住的車屋公園,萳茜見到牠也喜心若狂。然而,車屋公園的管理員,禁止公園裡有任何狗的存在,甚至向萳茜威脅要拿槍射紅狗。萳茜和約翰在哈默斯利的朋友們開始在丹皮爾社區為紅狗尋求支持,在有幾名礦工參與的「文明的對談」後,公園管理員和他的妻子離開了,但留了他們的貓,紅貓(Red Cat)。一場紅狗與紅貓之間的大戰隨之而來,而最後,牠們化解了存在於牠們之間的差異性(狗與貓)而成為朋友。
時間回到現在,礦工喬可(洛汗尼可)將大家聚集在一起並問,為什麼他們要一個「人」的雕像(威廉.丹皮爾)坐落在他們的小鎮,只因為他是第一個發現這個小鎮的人並評價這個地方「有很多蒼蠅」呢?並且建議大家應該將雕像換成一個能代表小鎮的人物–紅狗。在之後的慶祝之後,在沒有任何人注意到的情況下,紅狗爬了起來並走出酒吧。發現到紅狗離開後,小鎮的每個人開始動身尋找牠,最後發現牠躺在約翰的墳前安息了。
一年後,湯瑪士帶了一隻新的小狗,一隻新的「紅狗」。而小鎮也為紅狗的雕像揭幕,這個雕像至今仍杵立在這個小鎮當中。

客串[编辑]

原著[编辑]

這隻橫越西澳大利亞皮爾布拉地區的知名紅狗(Red Dog)是澳洲牧羊犬與黃牛狗的混種狗。而紅狗最常往返停留的城鎮,丹皮爾,豎立著一座以牠的傳奇所刻立的雕像。[3][4]
紅狗被認為是在1971年出生在帕拉卜杜(Paraburdoo)[5] ,聽過紅狗的人說牠有過很多不同的名字,包括布雷(Bluey)、哈哈(Tally Ho)以及西北方之犬。[6]
1979年,在紅狗過世後不久,澳洲作家萳茜.吉萊絲皮(Nancy Gillespie)在皮爾布拉地區的幾位人士的幫助下,如富康達克特(Beverly Duckett)為紅狗下了註語「皮爾布拉流浪者」[7],寫下了有關紅狗的傳奇軼聞與詩歌。[8]
紅狗以及牠的雕像吸引了許多人的注意,因而特別到丹皮爾一遊,其中包括英國作家路易.德貝爾尼耶(Louis de Bernières),他因此寫下了一本以紅狗為靈感的書《紅狗》[9] 。此外,也有一間四輪驅動車俱樂部以紅狗的事蹟命為店名。[10]

評語[编辑]

截至2011年11月17日 (2011-11-17) the film made more than A$21 million at the Australian box office since opening in August 2011.[1]

Red Dog is the eighth-highest grossing Australian film of all time. 11 days after opening, Red Dog became the highest grossing Australian film of 2011.[11]

Red Dog was officially released on DVD, Blu-ray and digital download on 1 December 2011 in Australia.

The Red Dog DVD is the biggest-selling Australian DVD of all time.[12] The DVD is also the third-highest selling DVD of all time in Australia behind Avatar (first) and Finding Nemo (second).

The red dog actor, Koko the Red, has died at the age of 7 from a heart condition (2012-12-18).

The film has not been as successful overseas as it was in Australia.

The film opened at #25 in the United Kingdom, earning just £24,727 from 56 screens ( 24–26 February 2012)[13] and opened at #5 at the New Zealand box office, earning NZ$124,447 from 72 screens.[14] The film has been a DVD only release in territories such as Germany and Argentina[15] but has been acquired by independent distributor Arc Entertainment in a deal for all media in the United States, though there is "no word on a theatrical release date or strategy" in the announcement.[16]

Critical response has also been more mixed overseas than in Australia.

The Guardian's Peter Bradshaw (U.K.) asked "Is it a children's story for adults? Or an adult's story for children?" and stated that the film "comes across like a well-meaning PG-certification of the real world."[17] The Hollywood Reporter's Megan Lehmann (U.S.A.) called the film "genial but unsophisticated fare, with plenty of hammy acting and broad humor" and that it "borders on naivety, and some of the more roughly drawn characters begin to grate early" though stated that the film "achieves a kind of existential purity. But then the two-legged actors butt in and the moment is lost.[18]

Review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes reported that 86% of critics reviewed the film positively, with an average score of 7.5/10.[19]

Phillip French of The Guardian said that the film is "guaranteed to bring tears and laughter".[20]

Garry Couzens of The Digital Fix said that, "I saw this film and War Horse within a day of each other, and felt that Red Dog achieved much of what Spielberg's film was aiming at, with much less sentimentality, anthropomorphism and self-importance, more laughs and with an hour's less running time."[21]

Mark Adams of the Sunday Mirror gave Red Dog a three star rating and said, "this canine true story is an engaging, feel-good Australian family drama about a dog." Adams opined that it boasted a strong cast and felt that overall it was "clichéd but charming".[22]

Craig Mathieson of SBS awarded the film three stars out of five, observing that the film "passes through various emotional states without ever being too taxing" and felt that Red Dog was "the most widely appealing Australian film since Bran Nue Dae".[23]

獲獎[编辑]

Red Dog won Best Film and the Australian Film Institute (AFI) Member's Choice Award at the 2011 Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) Awards.

Red Dog dominated the 2011 Inside Film Awards. Nominated in nine categories, it won seven. It received the Best Feature Film award, as well as:[24]

  • Best Actor – Josh Lucas
  • Best Direction – Kriv Stenders
  • Best Script
  • Best Cinematography
  • Best Music
  • Best Box Office Achievement

It missed winning Best Editing and Best Production Design.[1]

Red Dog won the Grand Prize Award for Best Narrative Feature at the Heartland Film Festival 2011. The Award included a cash prize of $100,000.

In 2012 Koko won the Award for Best Dog in a Foreign Film at the inaugural Golden Collar Awards in Los Angeles. Koko's acceptance speech was played at the ceremony because he was unable to attend the event.
