爱思英语编者按:本片的前身是同名音乐剧,根据法国大文豪维克多-雨果(Victor Hugo) 1862年发表的长篇小说改编,故事围绕一名获释的罪犯阿让(Jean Valjean)展开,着重描写他寻求救赎的过程。《悲惨世界》是一部音乐剧电影,片中全部采用现场录音,这对大腕们的唱功是一个极高挑战,即便是曾在奥斯卡领奖台或百老汇舞台上一展歌喉的休·杰克曼、安妮·海瑟薇也感到“压力好大”。

《悲惨世界》经典绝美英文独白

51.jpg

曾几何时,我流连梦境,心比天高,人生充满希望。我梦见爱情永不消逝。我梦见上帝慈爱宽恕。那时我多么年轻,多么无畏。随心梦想,从不设防。不必付出什么代价,无歌不唱,无酒不尝。然而猛兽在黑夜来袭,如晴天霹雳轰然炸响。活生生撕碎了希望,把美梦全变成懊悔。
I dreamed a dream in time gone by, when hope was high and life worth living. I dreamed that love would never die. I dreamed that God would be forgiving. Then I was young and unafraid. And dreams were made and used and wasted. There was no ransom to be paid, no song unsung, no wine untasted. But the tigers come at night with their voices soft as thunder. As they tear your hope apart, as they turn your dream to shame.

他睡在我身边一个夏天。他给我带来无穷惊喜。他随手摘去了我的童年,当秋天到来,他却消失不见。我仍然梦想他会回到我身边,我们还能相守一生。但总有些梦无法成真。总有些风暴会把人摧毁。
He slept a summer by my side. He filled my days with endless wonder. He took my childhood in his stride, but he was gone when autumn came. And still I dream he’ll come to me, that we will live the years together. But there are dreams that can not be. And there are storms we can not weather.

我曾梦见的那种人生,与这人间地狱截然不同,何曾想过命运如此无常!现实却残忍击碎了我的梦。
I had a dream my life would be, so different from this hell I’m living, so different now from what it seemed! Now life has killed the dream I dreamed.

在那儿,茫茫黑夜中,一个逃犯在潜行。背叛了上帝,辜负了天恩。上帝,请为我见证!哪怕穷尽一生,我也要让他无处遁形!我也要让他无处遁形!他在暗处轻车熟路。我跟随天主,堂堂正正。
There, out in the darkness, a fugitive running. Fallen from God, fallen from grace. God, be my witness! I never shall yield till we come face to face! Till we come face to face! He knows his way in the dark. Mine is the way of the Lord.

走正义之路的人风雨兼程,奖赏终获怀中。如果他们坠落,如路西弗堕入地狱。烈焰蚀心!利剑折磨!看苍穹中繁星闪烁!数不清的几百万颗,以光明和秩序点亮黑暗。人间的卫士啊!沉默又坚定!守望着黑夜。守望着黑夜!你深知你在天空的使命。你目标坚定,心无旁骛!四季变换,你随之轮转,如果你坠落,如路西弗堕入地狱,你也会烈焰焚身!天理昭彰,书载言传,去往天堂的通路上,动摇者和堕落者必得付出代价!
Those who follow the path of the righteous shall have their reword. And if they fall, as Lucifer fell. The flame! The sword! Stars in your multitudes! Scarce to be counted. Filling the darkness with order and light. You are the sentinels. Silent and sure! Keeping watch in the night. Keeping watch in the night! You know your place in the sky. You hold your course and your aim! And each in your season returns and returns, and is always the same. And if you fall, as Lucifer fell, you fall in flames! And so it must be, for so it is written on the door way toParadise, that those who falter and those who fall must pay the price!

主啊!让我找到他,将他置于牢笼之下!我会不眠不休,直到那天为止!我以这星辰之名向你起誓!
Lord, let me find him, that I may see him safe behind bars! I will never rest till then! This I swear! This I swear by the stars!

一个人,假装他在我身旁。孤单单,他陪我走到天亮。他不在,我却能感到他的拥抱。迷路时只需闭上双眼,他就会找到我。雨朦胧,地面银光闪烁。看街灯,映河水如烟如梦。黑暗中,树枝间缀满星辰。我仿佛看见我俩相伴,直到永远!
On my own, pretending he’s beside me. All alone, I walk with him till morning. Without him, I feel his arms around me. And when I lose my way, I close my eyes and he has found me. In the rain, the pavement shines like silver. All the lights are misty in the river. In the darkness, the trees are full of starlight. And all I see is him and me forever and forever!

我知道,这不过是我的想象。那些话都是我自言自语,也知道他只会视而不见。但仍觉得,我们还有希望。我爱他,但当黑夜结束,他消失,河又变回了平凡的河。没有他,我周围的一切都变了。到处都是光秃秃的树木,街上都是陌生的目光。
And I know it’s only in my mind. That I’m talking to myself and not to him, and although I know that he is blind. Still I say there’s a way for us. I love him. But when the night is over, he is gone, the river’s just a river. Without him, the world around me changes. The trees are bare and everywhere, the streets are all full of strangers.

我爱他,但我也日渐明了。这一生,我不过在欺骗自己。没有我,他的世界依然如故。那里满是我从未体会过的幸福。我爱他,但是只是我一厢情愿罢了。
I love him. But every day I’m learning. All my life, I’ve only been pretending. Without him, his world will go on turning. A world that’s full of happiness that I have never known. I love him, but only on my own.
