Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


Doctor Zhivago, the Nobel Prize winning work in 1958. One of the best works in contemporary Soviet Russian literature depicts the ideals, hopes, frustrations and disappointments of an old intellectual before and after the October Revolution. More importantly, it describes an epic love in a turbulent era. The author of the novel, Boris Pasternak, a famous Russian poet and translator, refused to accept the award under the threat of deportation and soon died of depression. Like Zhivag, he was unwilling to leave Russia. It is also a pity that the legendary love story between Paasche and his confidant Evans Kaya (the prototype of Lala) also ends in tragedy.

Known as “the last Mohican in American traditional culture, the conscience of two generations of American intellectuals, and the spiritual godfather of the third and fourth generations of young people”, Edmund Wilson praised Dr. Zhivag for its dual classic characteristics of war and peace and Finnegan wake. Wilson said that like Paasche, he inherited the spiritual contradiction between reform and tradition, and there was a “conflict between artist temperament and philosophical literacy” — as if a small tree with vitality grew on the cement covered atrium.

It is as clear as flowing ice and spring water, accompanied by the Ding Dong of stringed piano, like the melancholy and affectionate “riwag melody” of white birch trees stretching to the ends of the world. The famous American country singer Kenny Rogers once sang the zigzag melody after filling in the lyrics – “somewhere my love”.

In 1965, Hollywood invited “film poet” David Lean to bring the novel to the screen. The film was nominated for the “Best Picture award” of the year, but lost to the voice of music. Chaplin’s daughter Geraldine won the best supporting actress award for playing zhewag’s wife Tonya.

In the opening part of the film, the mourning crowd sang a sad song of mourning, closed the coffin cover and put the wife of the unfortunately abandoned Siberian rich businessman in the dark box into the grave. The camera filled the grave like rain from the soil and shook it to the side of the cemetery. A teenage boy looked absently at the bleak and cold trees. The wind was whistling and wailing. Snow is like a white brocade, spinning and falling from the blue gray sky, like corpses, cold and indifferent covering the black earth.

The dying shadow will close my eyes,

Take me away from the day,

The blood that brought fuel to the raging fire,

Once brilliant burning bone marrow:

They will eventually leave this body,

They will turn to ash.

Everyone on the screen was awed and sat there silently feeling the little boy’s fear and pain. Boris Pasternak let my emotional heat swim through the cold water and continue to burn.

The little boy Yuri andreyevich grew up. He saw a doctor, thought, studied, wrote, became a surgeon Zhivag, and his poetry is famous. His love with Lala is love in troubled times. There are too many enemies of love, which can be reputation, secular, hard currency or politics. Lovers can always find a time to escape. When the outside world was in chaos, the lovers were lingering together in the wild cabin in the ice and snow. Lala boiled water and washed clothes, Yuri fetched water and firewood, wrote poetry for her beloved woman, and the sweet tranquility is like a happy couple who have lived for many years. Andreyevich wiped the thick dust on the long table with his hands, and the table emitted a warm chestnut light. He will start writing again:

When life is in trouble and pain,

You blocked the path of despair for me,

Your beauty lies in your courage,

It is it that ties you and me firmly.

On a blue and clean winter night, a bleak wolf howl came from the silent liaokuo snow in the distance. This is a hostile force, which also includes being arrested, frozen to death, and unable to supply forage and food. They are in a desperate situation, waiting for either escape or death. The time of breaking up between the doctor and Lala is approaching day by day. He knows that he will lose her, and then lose his desire for life, even life.

The torrent of fate finally, finally separated the lovers again, forever. At that moment, the crimson sun fell into the blue line of the snowbank; At that moment, the soft light gray wilderness sank into the purple twilight. On a winter night, full of unprecedented sympathy, the doctor stood on the steps, facing the closed door, isolated from the world. “My bright sun is setting.” He kept repeating this sentence in his heart, but he was unable to spit out the words in order, because his throat twitched and hurt, which interrupted them all the time. Sometimes, the doctor will clearly think of the woman who has gone far, and a tenderness will surge in his heart. His heart is like a knife, and he is at a loss in pain. It was like when he was a child, in the song of birds in summer, he seemed to hear the voice of his dead mother, as if she was calling “yurochka” in the next room.

The fourteenth chapter of Dr. Zhivag – return to valejino has the same charming poetic flavor as the ninth chapter valejino. I remember that Mr. LAN Yingnian, one of the translators of this book, was also most interested in “returning to valejino”, saying that when he translated this chapter, “he was excited to stop writing several times and couldn’t translate it.” Isn’t it — the turbulent times and suffering conditions will not fade away, but stimulate people’s inspiration and writing enthusiasm, while love that seems so small compared with fate naturally occurs, grows tenaciously in the tease of fate, and is often paradoxically separated from marriage.

Robert Bolt, the screenwriter of the film Dr. Zhivag, is an indispensable character. It takes great courage and extraordinary talent to move the greatest love theme of this century onto the screen delicately and boldly. Robert makes a meaningful change at the end of the novel: old age day Varg returns to Moscow and is ready to take office at the porterkin hospital. Like the foreshadowing at the beginning of the film, he gets on a faulty tram, and the insulator on the roof breaks down and crackles. The difference is that at the beginning of the film, Yuri and Lala seats, who don’t know each other, are lined up in front and back. At the end of the film, Yuri, who has a weak heart like paper, saw in the car a woman wearing a pale yellow straw hat of daisy and arrow car chrysanthemum. She exceeded the stopped tram several times. The doctor saw her, dizzy and weak limbs. With superhuman perseverance, he squeezed into the door of the car and stepped on the stone slab of the long street. He wanted to stop the lady who walked lightly, but he couldn’t make any sound. A burst of cone-shaped spasm. Dr. zhiwag took one step, two steps, three steps, fell to the ground and stopped breathing. Different from the irrelevant woman panting in the novel, the blonde in the film is implied to be a lesbian, so the end of the story becomes that Yuri misses a lesbian again at the end of his life.

Dr. Zhivag is a mysterious protector and admirer. General yevgrav Zhivag, the doctor’s half brother, who will quietly appear in a critical moment, has been added a lot of scenes in the film. The film “Dr. Zhivag” runs through the head and tail with general comrades looking for Yuri and Lala’s children, bringing a few golden dawn to the swift, dangerous, black and ruthless river of fate.
