剧情介绍:

  英曼是美国南北战争末期一名受伤士兵,在灵魂仿佛燃尽之后,对家园强烈的渴望支撑他站立起来,踏上了艰辛漫长的归家旅程。他的情人艾达则在山影交错的乡间忍受孤独,度过了失怙独立的蜕变期,学会了如何与粗砺尖锐的生活抗挣。战争摧毁了一切,而依然兀立的冷山是他们之间唯一的联系,也是他们回忆与想望的地方——一个即使你所信仰的天堂已然破灭,却仍能为你疗伤止痛的美好国度。

  这一幕截取的是片头英曼受伤后回忆他和妻子艾达初识的情景。让我们一起来读读这一片段的剧本,并按要求补充剧本。

XT. BLACK COVE(n.山凹,小湾) FARM. DAY.

A beautiful day, the farm peaceful.Inman从栅栏外走到Ada家门口这一个小片断,请用简单的一两句话做场景描述。He knocks on the door. Monroe(Ada的父亲) answers.

MONROE: Mr. Inman.
INMAN: Reverend.(对牧师的尊称)
MONROE: What can I do for you?

Inman hovers, awkward(尴尬的). Ada appears, awkward.

INMAN: I have some sheet music(n.活页乐谱). Belonged to my father. No use to me.

Ada comes forward, takes the package.

MONROE: You must come in.
INMAN: I should probably get along.
ADA: Mr.Inman is more comfortable outdoors.Perhaps we might take a walk.
MONROE: A splendid idea.

Monroe and Inman and Ada touring the farm. It's a biggish property, over three hundred acres. And well-tended by the dozen slave(奴隶,辛勤努力) farmhands(n.农场工人;雇农) who work it,some of whom are dotted(星罗棋布的) about in the landscape(n.风景).Rolling mountains dominate the view.

MONROE: (expansive)I dragged my poor daughter 400 miles from Charleston to Cold Mountain, because my doctors, they've been sayin' my chest(n.胸腔) is weak.So the air's supposed to do me good. But it's the view I think heals.
INMAN: It's what people say we're fightin' for. To keep it that way.

Ada walking behind,comes alongside the two men, threading her arm into her father's but, by so doing, also arriving next to Inman.

MONROE: I have no plans to preach(v.鼓吹) war in my church, Mr lnman.
INMAN: I imagine God is weary of(v.厌烦,不耐烦) being called down on both sides of an argument.(be down on: v.对...有怨气; call down: v.祈求到,招致,责骂;)
MONROE: I imagine God is.

From the window Ada watches the Cabriolet(n.蓬式汽车) head towards town.At the piano, she unwraps(vt.打开) the leather lace from the package of music. Inside the first book of music, there's a daguerreotype(银版照片) of Inman with his LeMats,a typical Confederate pose. Some of the music has left its imprint on the picture,the notes like a melody over Inman's face. Ada picks them out on the piano.


原剧本供参考:

A beautiful day, the farm peaceful. Inman walks up the path to the farmhouse, its borders flowering and pretty, a slave woman weeding. He knocks on the door. Monroe answers.
