《那年花开月正圆》:10句扎心台词之英译版

原标题:《那年花开月正圆》:10句扎心台词之英译版

*剧中我最喜欢的插曲*

国庆节期间我哪儿都没去,待在家备课、煲剧来着。

今天,我要跟大伙聊聊最近收视率火爆的电视剧--《那年花开月正圆》。

这部剧的讲述的是晚清陕西传奇女商人周莹的故事,周莹出身卑微,自幼跟养父街头卖艺,歪打正着嫁入豪门,从谁都看不起的“小混混”,经历各种曲折坎坷,最终成为叱诧一方、众人追捧的女首富。

说到周莹,就不能不提主演孙俪。像周莹这种角色我觉得全中国只有孙俪才能hold住。从前几年的《甄嬛传》,到《芈月传》,再到今年这部《那年花开月正圆》,部部都是一个套路:命运多舛的女屌丝逆袭登上人生巅峰。虐心的剧情,分分钟让人入戏,看得人欲罢不能,心潮澎湃。

再来说说《那年花开月正圆》片名的英译,叫做 nothing gold can stay 而不是“That Year the Flower Blooms in the Full Moon”,很明显,前者属于意译,而且言简意赅,出自美国著名诗人Robert Frost(罗伯特·佛罗斯特)的诗--Nothing Gold Can Stay,可以翻译为“一切都是昙花一现”。

诗歌原文:

Nature's first green is gold,

大自然的第一抹绿珍贵无比,

Her hardest hue to hold.

她的这一抹绿最难持久。

Her early leaf's a flower;

她的叶子开始是鲜花;

But only so an hour.

可惜稍纵即逝。

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

片片叶子先后凋零。

So Eden sank to grief,

伊甸园不禁悲伤不已,

So dawn goes down to day.

拂晓过后是白昼。

Nothing gold can stay.

一切都是昙花一现。

这首诗歌想表达的意思就是“一切美好的事物最后都会消失”(all good things will come to an end),而这也恰恰是《那年花开月正圆》想表达的要义。过去的时光或许很美好,但我们更应把握现在,因为每一个当下的时刻,都将成为今后的回忆,不留遗憾才是对这一生最好的交待。

下面,我精选了剧中10个经典的台词,每一句看了都很扎心。我试图将它们译成英文,水平不佳,只能做到信和达,供大家赏玩、学习。如果你有更好的版本,欢迎文末留言与我探讨。

“其实我们所有人呐,都是过客,你看啊,夫妻,父女,君臣,早晚都得散,只不过是,早几天,晚几天罢了。就是因为,早晚都要散,所以啊,聚的时候,就要铆足了劲的开心,等到散了呢,谁也别惦记谁,各自往各自的下一站奔。再找,新的开心。”
