青牛西去 紫气东来

待到秋来九月八,我花开后百花杀。冲天香阵透长安,满城尽带黄金甲。

Breakfast at Tiffany's是根据剧作家Truman Capote的同名小说在大幅改编后所拍的一部现实主义题材的电影。里面讲述了并不成功的作家Paul搬到纽约市的一栋公寓,遇到了楼下来自德州的“自由职业者”Holly后而演绎出的一段浪漫而有些凄婉的爱情故事,电影以Holly在第五大道上的Tiffany的window shopping开头,以Paul和Holly在纽约大街上的绵绵细雨中找回刚刚丢弃的猫儿相拥而吻为结尾。剧中男女主人公都有着貌似光鲜的职业,但是他们暗地里都从事着为“道德君子们”所不齿的职业,但是他们都有着金子般的心灵,尽管他们都在为各自的生活斗争着,他们都彼此了解对方的职业,都受到来自不同方面的考验和诱惑,但是这并不能阻止两颗年轻的,向往自由,渴望真爱的善良心最终结合,最后爱情成为他们的共同归属。

当开始计划拍此电影时,Holly的人选是Marilyn Monroe,但是她在看了剧本后说:“playing such an unrepentant prositute will kill her career”,于是剧组找到当时刚从瑞士回美国的Audrey Hepburn. Audrey说这个角色对她是个挑战,因为剧中人Holly是个性格极其外向的人,而她是个内向的人。电影上映后,连一直希望Monroe来出演Holly的原创剧作家Truman都不得不说Audrey did a terrific job. Audrey的出色演出也让她成为了年度奥斯卡的女主角提名人选。但是我个人认为如果Monroe能够出演该角色,毋庸讳言应该比Audrey更加成功,毕竟Audrey向来给人的印象是淑女典雅型的,而Monroe的形象就完全外向奔放更象来自德州乡村的女孩如电影River of no return 和Bus stop。

该片的另一亮点是主题曲《Moon River》,据说,该片在内部预演时Paramount的老板要把这首歌remove,但是Audrey insists: “over my dead body.”  这首歌后来获得了年度的奥斯卡最佳歌曲. Henry Mancini:“ It took me a long time to figure out what Holly Golightly was all about. One night after midnight I was still trying. I don't drink much, but I was sipping. And it came to me. I wrote ["Moon River"] in half an hour.”《Moon River》在2004年被美国电影学院评选出的100首最著名的电影歌曲中名列第四,仅次于1。 Over the rainbow , The Wizard of Oz, 2。As time goes by,  Casablanca,  3。Singin in the Rain,  Singin in the Rain。

 

Andy Williams " Moon River"

Moon river, wider than a mile
I'm crossing you in style some day
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever you're goin', I'm goin' your way
Two drifters, off to see the world
There's such a lot of world to see
We're after the same rainbow's end, waitin' 'round the bend
My huckleberry friend, moon river, and me
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever you're goin', I'm goin' your way
Two drifters, off to see the world
There's such a lot of world to see
We're after that same rainbow's end, waitin' 'round the bend
My huckleberry friend, moon river, and me

 

最后,就一起欣赏电影最后的也是最精彩最感人的对白片段。

Paul I love you.
Holly: So what.
Paul: So what? So plenty! I love you, you belong to me!
Holly No. People don't belong to people.
Paul: Of course they do!
Holly: I'll never let ANYBODY put me in a cage.
Paul: I don't want to put you in a cage, I want to love you!

Paul:You know what's wrong with you, Miss Whoever-you-are? You're chicken, you've got no guts. You're afraid to stick out your chin and say, "Okay, life's a fact, people do fall in love, people do belong to each other, because that's the only chance anybody's got for real happiness." You call yourself a free spirit, a "wild thing," and you're terrified somebody's gonna stick you in a cage. Well baby, you're already in that cage. You built it yourself. And it's not bounded in the west by Tulip, Texas, or in the east by Somali-land. It's wherever you go. Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself.
