Once【曾經。愛是唯一】

Once一個男孩遇見一個女孩,他們對彼此唱著美麗的歌,浪漫就此蔓延開來。【曾經。愛是唯一】是一部以都柏林的街頭為背景的當代音樂愛情電影,影片描述一個街頭音樂家與一個捷克移民的女孩一起譜寫,排練,灌錄一首首記錄著他們的愛情故事的歌曲。

是的,這篇是電影文。
 

kgl's Blog:用歌聲打動人心的音樂愛情電影 Once【曾經。愛是唯一】

這是一部簡單平實樸素的音樂愛情電影,沒有峰迴路轉的劇情、也沒有如王子公主般的完美結局,正因為他的不完美,而造就了一種真實的情感,不帶虛假,男女主角在劇中沒有名字,僅以guy和girl簡單帶過,清淡直接自然純粹的故事彷彿就發生在我們周遭人、甚至我們自己身上。

Weltschmerz:只在乎曾經擁有的柏拉圖愛情

當Girl第一次在街頭巧聽Guy的歌聲,便直接質問Guy的歌曲是寫給誰?這個冒然的質問,不單單是女性心思的敏感,或者純粹的好奇,而是一位同樣擁有曾經,且希冀寓情於樂,卻不得不低頭於現實壓力的孤獨者,向另一城市孤獨者所釋放的體貼與善意。這時兩顆同樣孤獨的心靈,正進行頻率的共鳴,正因為兩人的頻率如此相同,接下來的故事進展也就順利成章。

 
男主角時常在街頭自彈自唱,為了賺錢,白天他彈唱大家比較喜歡的曲子,到了晚上比較冷清的時候,他忘我地唱著自己創作的歌,投入的深刻情感使那歌聲嗓音格外令人動容。

Say It to Me Now
by Glen Hansard

I’m scratching at the surface now
And I’m trying hard to work it out
So much has gone misunderstood
This mystery only leads to doubt
And I didn’t understand
When you reached out to take my hand
And if you have something to say
You’d better say it now

Cause this is what you’ve waited for
Your chance to even up the score
And as these shadows fall on me now
I will somehow yeah~

Cause I’m picking up a message Lord
And I’m closer than I’ve ever been before

So if you have something to say
Say it to me now
Say it to me now now
OH~
在都柏林街頭的一角,拉近拉遠的運鏡下,女主角被巧妙地帶入了男主角的世界中。
他們相識相知,又因為共同抱持音樂的夢想而得以觸碰彼此靈魂深處,進而相惜相戀。


貫穿全片的主題曲,是男女主角在樂器店唱和的曲子。

Falling Slowly
by Glen Hansard

I don't know you
But I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me
And always fool me
And I can't react
And games that never amount
To more than they're meant
Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You've made it now

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can't go back
Moods that take me and erase me
And I'm painted black
You have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It's time that you won

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you had a choice
You've made it now

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you had a choice
You've made it now
Falling slowly sing your melody
I'll sing along

雖然還不算懂妳,可是我想要妳
正因為如此,我無法表達得清楚
說出來的話總讓我聽來像個傻子
我無法應對
遊戲永遠只是遊戲,終有一天會完結

搭這載滿了愛將沈的船,把它的指針朝向家的方向
我們還有時間,用妳滿懷希望的聲音大喊
選擇在於妳,而妳決定那個時刻就是現在

慢慢緊閉的雙眼,我再也回不去了
憂傷吞噬了我,我陷入一片黑暗
歷盡了磨難與自己作戰
是時候該妳贏得勝利了

搭這載滿了愛將沈的船,把它的指針朝向家的方向
我們還有時間,用妳滿懷希望的聲音大喊
選擇在於妳,而妳決定那個時刻就是現在

緩緩地為愛而墜落,這是屬於妳的旋律
我將會為妳而唱
不知怎麼的,這首歌引起了意外的共鳴,或許在現階段對我有一種心有戚戚的感覺吧。
這首歌的中文翻譯我找到好幾個版本,都像極了丟進翻譯器裡吐出來毫無情感的東西。
到頭來還是自己翻吧。不過,還是電影院裡的那個版本最讚!這算置入性行銷嗎?^^"


這首也很不錯,男主角拿著一首浪漫的曲子,請女主角幫填詞。
『妳想不想試試…給這曲子填詞?我有點寫不出來,太浪漫了…』

If You Want Me
by Glen Hansard、Marketa Irglo

Are you really here or am I dreaming?
I can't tell dreams from truth
For it's been so long since I have seen you
I can hardly remember your face anymore

When I get really lonely and the distance causes only silence
I think of you smiling
With pride in your eyes
A lover that sighs

If you want me
Satisfy me
If you want me
Satisfy me

Are you really sure that you'd believe me?
When others say I lie
I wonder if you could ever despise me
When you know I really try
To be a better one to satisfy you
But you're everything to me
And I'll do what you ask me
If you'll let me be free.

If you want me
Satisfy me
If you want me
Satisfy me

If you want me
Satisfy me
If you want me
Satisfy me
在女主角焦急地為 CD Player 張羅著電池要聽著曲子填詞的過程中,隨興地帶出這首歌的旋律。
很溫柔浪漫的一首歌,本來以為它會在後面還有關鍵的一擊,我的思考還是太好萊塢了嗎?XD

個人推薦這首在錄音室的小插曲,那澎湃洶湧卻悅耳動聽的樂聲,很有下定決心的感覺唷!

When Your Mind's Made Up
by Glen Hansard

So, if you want something
And you call, call
Then'll come running
To fight, and I'll be at your door
When there's something worth running for

When your mind's made up
When your mind's made up
There's no point trying to change it
When your mind's made up
When your mind's made up
There's no point trying to stop it

You see, you're just like everyone
When the shit falls all you want to do is run, away
And hide all by yourself
When you're far from me, there's nothing else

When your mind's made up
When your mind's made up
There's no point trying to change it
When your mind's made up
When your mind's made up
There's no point even talking
When your mind's made up
When your mind's made up
There's no point trying to fight it

So, if you ever want something
And you call, call
Then I'll come running.
一旦你下定決心,就沒有理由嘗試去停止它。
不管你的夢想有多遠,都有可能實現的。


錄音室還有另一首,輕快俏皮的浪漫曲風,也是很讚的。

Fallen From The Sky
by Glen Hansard

You must've fallen from the sky
You must've shattered on the runway
you've brought so many to the light
And now you're by yourself

There comes a point in every fight
When giving up seems like the only way
When everyone one has said goodbye
And now you're on your own

If you need somewhere to fall apart
Somewhere to fall apart
The rules of cain ,the rights you've made
The owls that caw, for those to blame
The broken glass, the fool that asked
The moving arrow to stop

You must've fallen from the sky
You must've come here in the pourin' rain
You took so many through the light
And now you're on your own

If you need somewhere to fall apart
Somewhere to fall apart
The ruins of man, the bloody black
The fool that bull the prouder hag
The night the makes the rattle ack
The wolves that follow the outed man
The falling star the way we are
The vern
The rules that never ever mulitply

You must've fallen from the sky
You must've come here on the wrong way
You came among us every time
But now you're on your own

If you need somewhere to fall apart
Somewhere to fall apart
The call you seek, the basket case
The rules of thumb you have to break
The raging skull, The rag to the bull
The nails that drag in either hand
Well I will make my worker that
I know this place
I know this time

You must've fallen from the sky
天上掉下來的禮物?^^"


耳聞這部片得了很多獎,所以在影片開始前,作足了心理準備。秉持著,得獎越多催眠指數的越高的防備心理下,戰戰兢兢地開始了這部片。事後證明,那是多餘的擔心。一連串的音樂串接起故事情節,發生在街頭、在樂器行、在錄音室、在公車上…,兩個人的靈魂因為音樂緊緊相繫。他們的相遇,激盪出了火花,一首一首的動人音樂,讓內心一次一次感動與共鳴,看完電影,就像是聽了一場音樂演場會。


很久沒被感動了嗎?這部片值得看看!
