策展人筆記

Kelly Reichardt returns to Oregon, the state where her little masterpieces Old Joy and Wendy And Lucy were set some years ago, and she also returns to those films’ narrative territory with the intimate, delicate and evocative First Cow. It is the story of a friendship between a skilled cook and a Chinese immigrant seeking his fortune in times when the American dream was still a dream, when everything – or almost everything – was yet to be realized in the Old West. The beautiful images at the film’s beginning, an immense ship navigating the Columbia River, followed by the discovery of bones buried in Sauvie Island, connect the past with the present and symbolize the unbreakable friendship between the two protagonists. The Half Life, the great 2004 book by Oregon native writer Jon Raymond on which First Cow is based, reaches a new dimension through Reichardt’s unique and highly cinematographic vision.

故事大綱

It is the 1820s in the Pacific Northwest of the USA. A taciturn loner and skilled cook has traveled west and joined a group of fur trappers in Oregon Territory, though he only finds true connection with a Chinese immigrant also seeking his fortune. Both on the run from a band of vengeful hunters, the two collaborate on a successful business, although its longevity is reliant upon the clandestine participation of a nearby wealthy landowner’s prized milking cow.
