I followed all of the rules, man's and God's. And you, you followed none of them. And they all loved you more. Samuel, Father, and my... even my own wife.
Some people hear their own inner voices with great clearness, and they live by what they hear. Such people become crazy, or they become legends." Intoning with purple-prose profundity by an old Indian narrator, the movie Legends of the Fall begins.
Pitt所饰演的Tristan是一个让所有女人心动的角色吧。他的勇敢、不羁、狂野，他的魅力，他的不受拘束不修边幅，他对自由的向往，无需多言。“Tristan's always been wild. You love him for that.”就像Alfred说得那样，大多数女人似乎都无法抗拒这样的男人。可是无论他多么想保护身边的人，爱他的人终英年早逝，Samel、小伊莎贝儿、Susana……他说自己被诅咒，其实他并没有，只是他选择了这样，他生为这样的人，他本就是一个属于自己的人，他的内心本就有一只灰熊在咆哮。没有人可以从Tristan那里抢走Tristan，尽管Tristan爱他们。也没有人可以拒绝爱Tristan，尽管Tristan伤害他们。
Today, I want to introduce the movie Legends of the Fall to you. It is adapted from a novel by Jim Harrison, directed by Edward Zwick, and published by Columbia Tri-Star. The film brings together good actors: it stars Brad Pitt as hero Tristan, Anthony Hopkins as old Ludlow and so on.
This epic melodrama deeply impresses me by the free and untamed soul of the hero Tristan. Blue eyes, long hair, rakish grin, strong muscles, Tristan totally conquered me at first glance. All his behaviors reflect a pioneering spirit, a great wildness, a courage daring to challenge, and a characteristic refusing to be constrained. I can feel the hotness of his blood; I can smell the wildness of his bone; I can read the burning fire in his eyes. This is the man I appreciate.
Tristan is twisted with bear all his life, blending with animalism and power. Bear is an indication of his characteristics. This movie opens with a fierce fighting between little Tristan and a bear, and closes also with a conflict between two of them. The only difference is: in the former fighting, the bear gave its own blood – the burning blood and the untamed spirit – to Tristan; in the latter one, the bear brought its blood away, also brought Tristan. His death as a result honors his whole life.
Father -Alfred! She's to be your brother's wife.
Alfred -Yes! Do you better might remind him of the bad fact.
Father -He's not here to defend himself.
Alfred -No~he's not. But I see you are here to defend him and what is his. Even though he has abandoned her, and you! And I won't even speak of who else he has abandoned.
Fahter -Damn you boy! Don't you blame my son for Samel's death! Samel chose to be a soldier, and soldiers die! Sent by the government, parasites like you! Damn you, and damn you too!
Alfred -Shut your mouth, you leave her out of this!
Father -You get out of my house and get off my land.
Alfred -Why? Because I wanna serve my country as you did? Or it's because like you I love a woman who doesn't love me? He used her and he deserted her! Your darling Tristan!
Alfred -I loved her!... I love her still...And he stole her from me, and if you wanna know the truth of it, he stole her from Samel before the war.
Father -God help me, I will kill you.
Alfred -Here. Read your darling Tristan's letter.....(walk away)Susana, you deserve to be happy.
Many behaviors of Tristan can be interpreted in a manner of bear's action. When he teared Samuel's chest and brought Samuel's heart away to liberate his soul, he behaved as a bear; when he aimed at the bear but refused to shot at it, he viewed bears as his partisan; when he decided to begin his burning crusade to the other side of the ocean -- the wild forest, he was to live as a bear. It reminds me of an old novel The Call of Wild by Jack London. In this novel, the dog was called for by its inner voices of wolves, and in this movie, Tristan was called for by his inner voices of bears.
Tristan also has intense affection with others. Susannah was attracted by him by first sight, and even died for him. Little Isabel set up her mind to marry Tristan when she was only a child and insisted on her wish when she grew up to be a beautiful lady. Tristan cherished his younger brother Samuel, companying with him in the battlefield and revenging for him. His elder brother Alfred once said:”I followed all the rules: men's, God's, and you followed none. And they all love you more, Samuel, father, and even my own wife.”Yes, Tristan lives by his own heart, not by his brain – this is why he has intense feelings with others and is fonded of deeply by others.
Alfred -I followed all the rules. Man's, God's. And you, you followed none of them. And they all loved you more. Samel, father, and...even my own wife. Huh.....I like a moment alone with her, Tristan.
The vast expanses of Big Sky Country Montana sets off the spirit of freedom and passion of Tristan. Only in this limitless wilderness can horses run fast, hairs fly freely, and Tristan own the untamed characteristics. Tristan is the son of wildest nature, “living in a borderland anyway, somewhere between this world and the other”.
Tristan lives a life which I appreciate. He represents my wildest dream about life. Many people are born, and many people die. But how many people can say it clearly why he should live and how he should live? How many people can hear their inner voices, and how many people dare to pursue them? I acknowledge that in reality no one can only care their own feelings and behaves what he likes. Such people could only become legends or crazy. Nevertheless, one should never lose his inner voices and should always try to live by them as well as be harmony with the society.
Some people hear their inner voices with great clearness and they live by what they hear. Such people become crazy or they become legends. 也许那是Tristan？
