这是一个极为寻常的布拉格早晨,初升的太阳与这座古老的城市一样,方才苏醒,还未来得及将笼罩在伏尔塔瓦河上的淡淡忧郁驱散殆尽。

一辆银灰色MINI John Cooper Works轻轻划过城堡广场前的街道,留下薄雾中掩映在绿树中的众多朱红色屋顶,与一座座和老城共存了上千年的塔楼剪影。

红色的车顶灵巧地穿行在老城狭窄蜿蜒的街道中,再过几个小时,这些小巷就会被熙攘的游客占领,而此刻,唯一受到惊扰的只有一群正在路边等待投食的慵懒鸽群

拐进一条稍微宽阔的街道后,车速渐渐变慢,圆圆的车灯最终在一座古老的巴洛克风格大宅前暗了下来

几天前,汤唯收到了一封没有署名的邀请函,来自一个神秘的Club。眼前的这座建筑便是信上的目的地——Ke Karlovu 462/20

繁复精巧的高耸围栏,彼时彰显权贵的烫金族徽,庭院内威严的雕像更为这个地方增添了几分肃穆与神秘。轻轻倚着大门往里张望时,厚重的铁门竟然很轻易就被推开了,步入其中,院子四周悄无声息,只有一只盘踞高处的黑猫警觉地弓起了身子。

汤唯穿过庭院,来到屋前,她轻轻扣动铜质门环,只听见低沉而坚定的声响在寂寥的院子内回响开去,似乎并没有来应门的脚步声。

于是,她缓缓沿着小径,想去窗边看看屋内究竟有没有人,这时汤唯原本专注的神情却突然露出一丝顽皮,进而忍不住笑出声来,爽朗的笑声瞬间驱散了四周的宁静与神秘,也将所有人从故事中带回了拍摄现场,还引起了几十位拍摄人员延绵不断的集体笑场——原来,汤唯饰演的是短片中的女主角Claire,而一位灯光师为了得到更好的照明效果爬上了铁门,却尴尬地卡在了两根栅栏之间,方才正是他向女主角无奈的眼神求助,造成了这次大型的笑场……

“咔……” 同样被这一幕笑翻了的捷克著名导演 Alice Nellis急忙暂停了拍摄,示意大家快去把那名敬业的灯光师弄下来,而其他人也正好休息调整几分钟。这个用汤唯的话来说“每天拥有美丽的裙子、太阳镜,阳光明媚到仿佛在度假”的片场,就是此次MINI John Cooper Works与汤唯共同演绎的短片“The Club”的拍摄现场。

值得一提的是,这是汤唯出演的第一部短片,更是国内广告第一次尝试一人分饰多角,而促成这次难能可贵的合作的机缘,还要从一通“意料之外”的电话讲起……

Nothing understood? That's what happened to us. A miracle of translation technology provides the remedy. Called: Translator.
