「日仏融合」

何かと注目の「薬指の標本」です。いわゆる単館映画は、まさしく掘り出し物の場合と、メジャーの配給会社がまたいだなりの理由がある映画に2分されるのですが、最近は邦画が供給過剰の状態にあることに加え、内容云々より韓流というだけでおばちゃんが殺到するなど映画そのものの実力以外でロードショーの規模が決まる傾向にあるので、単館系映画でも案外掘り出し物に出くわすことが多いような気がします。ハリウッドで連発されるCGアニメもそうですね。つまらない内容なのに絵柄で騙されたり、キャッチした大手配給会社がテレビ局や広告代理店とタッグを組んで「声優初挑戦」の人気タレントを起用するのも真の名作が日の目を浴びない原因かもしれません。

映画を観終わって分かったのですが、薬指の標本は、小川洋子原作の小説を映画化したものでした。本編中、これは極めて文学的、しかも日本文学に共通する部分があるなと思ったのも無理ありませんね。何でもかんでも標本にすることで安心するというテーマは、なるほどなという気がします。雰囲気としては、大江健三郎の「奇妙な仕事」っぽい感じもしますが。

本編は、瓶詰め工場からスタートします。炭酸飲料の中で踊る幻想的な水玉など眺めているだけで引き込まれるようなシーンに続き、透明感のある女優、オルガ・キュリレンコ演じるイリスの痛いシーンが全てをかき消します。その後の映像表現も痛さと美しさが混在する、ハリウッド映画には真似できないような芸術性の高いものに仕上がっています。そして、流れ流れて標本の研究所へ向かうイリス。ちょっと不思議系の話では、日常から非日常へのギアチェンジが非常に難しいのですが、この難関も映像で見事にカバーしています。

ターン1までの評価「A」

自分のフィーリングにがっちり合った面白い本に出くわすと、ちびちびとかみ締めるように読みたくなりますが、薬指の標本の序盤はまさにそうです。「誰かが自分の心を癒すために何かを標本にしてもらうために持ってくる」という観客を惹きつけるシステムが確立していますから、あとはこの設定をベースに話がどのように展開されていくかを楽しみに読み進めるだけ…こういうシンプルなストーリーは、なかなかお目にかかれません。例えば、バトル・ロワイアルのヒットの秘密は、生徒と生徒がそれぞれの人間関係の中で殺し合いを演じるというシステムが序盤に確立され、読者は誰がどのように行動するかを読み進めれば誰にでも物語の世界に入り込めるという、ストーリーのシンプルさにあるように思います。

薬指の標本は、中盤になって冒頭のシーンと繋がってきます。少女は何故、汚れたキノコを標本にして欲しいと来たのか、理由を聞くとああ、なるほどなと思います。シーンの並べ替えをしなくてもストーリーは成立するのですが、ここは、フランス映画らしいひねりが効果的に使われているような気がします。そして、遠まわしにエロい行動を仕掛けてくるエロ博士にいつの間にか惹かれていくイリス…ちょっと一緒に行動したからといってバンバンやりまくってしまうハリウッド映画とは正反対です。

薬指の標本は、足フェチ、うなじフェチの方にはたまらない映画といえるでしょう。足にこだわって、赤い靴をプレゼントするエロ博士、そして、作り手はうなじフェチではないかと確信するように、汗ばむイリスのうなじが随所に出てきます。足フェチのひげっちさんにはお勧めかもしれません。

ターン2までの評価「A」

薬指の標本は、後半に入ってテンポが鈍るシーンがあります。それは、エロ博士とイリスが交わった後から。つまり、間接的なエロから直接的なエロに切り替わった後です。それでも、イリスが火傷の跡を標本にしてくれとやってくる少女に抱く嫉妬などは納得出来るものであり、それがラストシーンに向けたイリスの決意に繋がっていくわけです。赤い靴がいつの間にか貞操帯のような存在になっていたり、イリスが他人の標本に嫉妬するようになっていたり、予想もつかないことが、いつの間にか当たり前のような設定になっていることに驚かされます。

最終評価「A」

薬指の標本にも欠点はあります。観客に投げかけた伏線を殆ど拾っていないということ、そして、悪人が出ないということです。イリスと同じ部屋に住んでいて、反対の時間帯で生活する男のことは、殆ど何も拾うことなく、イリスとの接点もどうでもいい展開でぶった切ったまま彼女の前から去らせたりしています。他にも、イリスが最初に履いていた靴はどうなったのかとか、研究所の老女は何者なのかとか、面白い要素としてバラまいているものの、拾うことなく映画は終了します。ただ、拾う必要はないなと思うエピソードも沢山あるのですが。悪人が出ると映画の独特な雰囲気を壊す可能性はありますが、イリスとエロ博士は、最初はちょっとした対立があったりなんかすると、その後の嫉妬が際立っていいのかもしれません。

日本とフランスは、文学において類似点が多いといわれています。薬指の標本を観ると、お互いの国民が曖昧な感情や表現を理解し合えることを確信することが出来るでしょう。ハリウッド映画もいいですが、たまには、こういう洋画を観るのもいいですね。願わくば、下らない邦画なんか上映するのはやめて、こういう掘り出し物の単館映画がもっともっと全国で観られるようになってほしいものです。
