原來人死了並不可怕,可怕的是人不斷的衰老、不斷的回憶過去,試圖努力找回年輕時的熱情。彼得奧圖在《Venus 維納斯》中飾演一個老牌演員莫里斯,每天與同樣身為演員的好友在咖啡廳敘舊,直到好友的外孫女伊恩闖進了他的生命中。他視伊恩為女神維納斯,這也重新燃起了莫里斯對愛情的渴望,但是兩人對彼此各有所需、各有所求,最終彼此傷害對方。《維納斯》最初的中文譯名是《末路愛神》,我還滿喜歡最初的翻譯,比較貼近本片的主旨,或許是忠於原文精神而改成《維納斯》,不過話說回來,《末路愛神》這個名字的確是有那麼一點淡淡的哀愁。

  《維納斯》算是一個不完美的悲劇,徒留很多的小遺憾,但是電影中用了一些肯妮貝兒的歌曲,讓人有種不知道該哭還是該笑的心境。雖然影片中出現的歌,不是肯妮貝兒專為《維納斯》這部電影所作的原創,但是結局配上「
Put Your Records On 點一首歌」,歌詞對照整部電影所要表達的意涵,突然對這一首歌有了新的感覺,就像歌詞中所說的,「女孩 點一首歌吧,告訴我妳最愛哪一首歌,讓心像風箏般隨風飛吧。」或許等我老了再重新看一次《維納斯》,說不定會有不同的體悟 : )。






Put Your Records On
Written by Corinne Bailey RaeJohn Beck, and Steve Chrisanthou

Three little birds sat on my window 窗邊飛來 了三隻小雀
And they told me I don't need to worry
 它們似乎告訴我要好好放輕鬆
Summer came like cinnamon, so sweet.
 夏天的味道像肉桂香般  如此甜美
Little girls double-dutch on the concrete
 看著大街上女孩們開心的玩著跳繩
 
Maybe sometimes,
 也許   有時候
We've got it wrong but it's alright.
 做自己其實也沒什麼不好ㄚ
The more things seem to change,
  物換星移
The more they stay the same.
  但舊愛還是最美
Ooo, don’t you hesitate.
  好啦  別再胡思亂想了
 
Girl put your records on,
  女孩 點一首歌吧
Tell me your favorite song.
 告訴我妳最愛哪一首歌
You go ahead let your hair down.
 讓自己心情隨風飛揚吧
Sapphire and faded jeans,
 穿上妳最愛的褪色牛仔褲
I hope you get your dreams.
  祝妳美夢 成真
Just go ahead let your hair down.
  讓心像風箏般隨風飛
You're going to find yourself somewhere, somehow.
  學會多愛自己一點吧
 
Blue as the sky,
 藍藍 的天空
Sunburnt and lonely,
 寂靜午後的暖暖陽光
Sipping tea in a bar by the roadside.
  在路邊啜著茶
Just relax, just relax.
 讓心像風箏般隨風飛吧
Don't you let those other boys fool you.
 再也別聽那些男孩們胡說八道
Got to love that afro hair do.
 要學會愛上妳那純真可愛的黑人頭
 
Maybe sometimes,
 也許   有時候
We feel afraid but its alright.
 你會覺得自己與眾不同 但那又如何呢?
The more you stay the same,
 妳愈忠於自我
The more they seem to change.
 大夥愈對你刮目相看
Don't you think its strange?
 妳不覺得這很奇怪嗎?
 
'twas more than I could take.
 我也曾和你一樣
Pity for pity's sake.
 也曾自哀自憐
Some nights kept me awake.
 也曾痛苦失眠
I thought that I was stronger.
 我想那讓我變得更堅強
When you going to realize
 妳何時才會想通呢?
That you don't even have to try any longer?
 別再苦苦掙扎
Do what you want to.
 勇敢的做自己 做你想做的吧
 
Girl put your records on ...
女孩 為自己 點首妳最愛的歌吧 ...
