肖申克的救赎The Shawshank Redemption

Fear can hold you prisoner. Hope can set you free,是《肖申克的救赎》的主题。Andy因被冤枉杀妻而入狱,他忍受住了监狱中的种种不公,在黑暗中坚守住了在他的狱友中早已丧失了的希望(Red 在入狱20年、30年、40年三次听证中的表现极其细腻地反映了“希望越大,失望越大”),他花了整整二十年的时间用一把小锤子凿了一条在外人看来至少要 凿六百年的逃生隧道,这真是一个奇迹!正如典狱长Norton在得知他得力的“洗钱工具”Andy神不知鬼不觉地越狱之后,发疯般地狂 叫:Lord!It’s a miracle! Andy从骨子里就不属于肖申克,正如Andy越狱成功之后Red的独白:Sometimes it makes me sad, though, Andy being gone. I have to remind myself that some birds aren’t meant to be caged, that’s all. Their feathers are just too bright… 最重要的是,Andy不仅救赎了自己,还在精神上救赎了他的狱友们,比如Red.
1、 “I couldn’t hack it on the outside. Been in here too long. I’m an institutional man now. Like old Brooks Hatlen was.”… “In here I’m the guy who can get it for you. Out there, all you need are Yellow Pages. I wouldn’t know where to begin.” ——Red对希望怀有恐惧--因为他也曾拥有希望。但他明白,希望越大,失望越大。
2、 “Man’s been here fifty years. This place is all he knows. In here, he’s an important man, an educated man. A librarian. Out there, he’s nothing but a used-up old con with arthritis in both hands. Couldn’t even get a library card if he applied. You see what I’m saying?”…“Believe what you want. These walls are funny. First you hate them, then you get used to them. After long enough, you get so you depend on them. That’s “institutionalized.”(这个词太妙了!)”——Red对Brooks(老布)从出狱到自杀的看法。

3、 There’s not a day goes by I don’t fell regret.Not because I’m in here,or because you think I should.I look back on the way I was then then,a young,stupid kid who committed that terrible crime.I want to talk to him.I want to try and talk some sense to him,tell him the way things are.But I can’t.That kid’s long gone and this old man is all that’s left.I got to live with that. Rehabilitated?It’s just a bullshit word.So you go on and stump your form,sonny,and stop wasting my time.Because to tell you the truth,I don’t give a shit.
我无时无刻不对自己 的所作所为深感内疚,这不是因为我在这里(监狱), 也不是讨好你们(假释官).回首曾经走过的弯路,我多么想对那个犯下重罪的愚蠢的年轻人说些什么,告诉他我现在的感受,告诉他还可以有其他的方式解决问 题.可是,我做不到了.那个年轻人早已淹没在岁月的长河里,只留下一个老人孤独地面对过去.重新做人?骗人罢了!小子,别再浪费我的时间了, 盖你的章吧,我没有什么可说的了。

4、It takes a strong man to save himself, and a great man to save another.
坚强的人只能救赎自己,伟大的人才能拯救他人 。

5、Remember, Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things and no good thing ever dies!
希望是人类最美好的拥有, 只要自己不放弃, 希望就会永远相伴相随。

6、I guess it comes down to a simple choice: get busy living or get busy dying.

7、Fear can hold you prisoner,hope can set you free.A strong man can save himself,a great man can save another.

8、Prison life consists of routine,and then more routine.

9、I have to remind myself that some birds aren’t meant to be caged, that’s all. Their feathers are just too bright

10、 These walls are kind of funny like that.First you hate them,then you get used to them.Enough time passed,get so you depend on them.That’s institutionalized.

11、 I find I’m so excited. I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head.I think it the excitement only a free man can feel,a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is un certain.I hope I can make it across the border.I hope to see my friend,and shake his hand.I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams.I hope.
我 发现自己是如此的激动,以至于不能静静地坐下来思考.我想只有那些重获自由即将踏上新征程的人们才能感受到这种即将揭开未来神秘面纱的激动心情.我希望跨 越千山万水握住朋友的手,我希望太平洋的海水如同梦中一样的蓝.我希望… ——Red赶往圣娜卢卡与Andy相会。
