绝对是在对的情绪看了对的电影

·以下均来自IMBd

很多年没有一部电影看2遍了

·个人所喜有 ~※~ 标记,很多。

在极度疲倦 每天只有不到4小时的睡眠后 看了the hours 泪流满面

Vanessa Bell: Virginia.
Virginia Woolf: Leonard thinks it’s the end of civilization: People who
are invited at 4 and arrive at 2:30.
Vanessa Bell: Oh God.
Virginia Woolf: Barbarians.

在看过的电影中最震撼的了 我不写任何评论 任何语言都显得苍白无力
它的力量,它的直指人心, 只有看过才能真实的体会

Leonard Woolf: If I didn’t know you better I’d call this ingratitude.
Virginia Woolf: I am ungrateful? You call ME ungrateful? My life has
been stolen from me. I’m living in a town I have no wish to live in…
I’m living a life I have no wish to live… How did this happen?

 

~※※~ (这段太精彩了)
Virginia Woolf: I’m dying in this town.
Leonard Woolf: If you were thinking clearly, Virginia, you would recall
it was London that brought you low.
Virginia Woolf: If I were thinking clearly? If I were thinking
clearly?
Leonard Woolf: We brought you to Richmond to give you peace.
Virginia Woolf: If I were thinking clearly, Leonard, I would tell you
that I wrestle alone in the dark, in the deep dark, and that only I can
know. Only I can understand my condition. You live with the threat, you
tell me you live with the threat of my extinction. Leonard, I live with
it too.

 

~※~
Virginia Woolf: This is my right; it is the right of every human being.
I choose not the suffocating anesthetic of the suburbs, but the violent
jolt of the Capital, that is my choice. The meanest patient, yes, even
the very lowest is allowed some say in the matter of her own
prescription. Thereby she defines her humanity. I wish, for your sake,
Leonard, I could be happy in this quietness.
[pause]
Virginia Woolf: But if it is a choice between Richmond and death, I
choose death.

 

~※~~※~ (其中有点睛之句)
Clarissa Vaughn: All right Richard, do me one simple favor. Come. Come
sit.
Richard Brown: I don’t think I can make it to the party, Clarissa.
Clarissa Vaughn: You don’t have to go to the party, you don’t have to go
to the ceremony, you don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do. You
can do as you like.
Richard Brown: But I still have to face the hours, don’t I? I mean, the
hours after the party, and the hours after that…
Clarissa Vaughn: You do have good days still. You know you do.
Richard Brown: Not really. I mean, it’s kind of you to say so, but it’s
not really true.

“Did it matter then, she asked herself, walking toward Bond Street.”

~※~
Virginia Woolf: You cannot find peace by avoiding life, Leonard.

 

~※~
Clarissa Vaughn: That is what we do. That is what people do. They stay
alive for each other.

“Did it matter that she must inevitably cease completely?”

~※※~ (这应该是整部电影里最沉而有意重的话…)
Virginia Woolf: Dear Leonard. To look life in the face, always, to look
life in the face and to know it for what it is. At last to know it, to
love it for what it is, and then, to put it away. Leonard, always the
years between us, always the years. Always the love. Always the hours.

 

Clarissa Vaughn: I don’t know what’s happening to me. I seemed to be
unraveling.

“All this must go on without her…”

Virginia Woolf: Leonard, I believe I may have a first sentence.

 

Dan Brown: The thought of this life, that’s what kept me going. I had an
idea of our happiness.

“Did she resent it…

Clarissa Vaughn: He gives me that look.
Julia: What look?
Clarissa Vaughn: To say your life is trivial. You are so trivial.

 

[in 1921]
Virginia Woolf: [writing in her book] Mrs. Dalloway said she would buy
the flowers herself.
[in 1951]
Laura Brown: [reading in bed] Mrs. Dalloway said she would buy the
flowers herself.
[in 2001]
Clarissa Vaughan: Sally, I think I’ll buy the flowers myself.
[waking up]
Sally Lester: What? What flowers?
[realizing]
Sally Lester: Oh, shit! I forgot!

or did it not become consoling

Virginia Woolf: I’ve been attended by doctors, who inform me OF MY OWN
INTERESTS.

 

~※~
Richard Brown: Just wait till I die. Then you’ll have to think of
yourself. How are you going to like that?

to believe that death ended absolutely?”

Laura Brown: We’re baking the cake to show him that we love him.
Richie Brown: Otherwise he won’t know we love him?
Laura Brown: That’s right.

 

Vanessa Bell: Your aunt is a very lucky woman Angelica. She has two
lives. The life she is living, and the book she is writing.

“It is possible to die.”

~※~ (隐性的压抑)
Laura Brown: Don’t worry, honey. Everything’s fine. We’re going to have
a wonderful party. We’ve made Daddy such a nice cake.

 

Virginia Woolf: I can’t think of anything more exhilarating than a trip
to London.

“It is possible to die.”

~※~ (before her suicide attempt)
Laura Brown: Baby. Baby, you have to be brave now.

 

Richard Brown: Who is this party for?
Clarissa Vaughan: What are you asking, what are you trying to say?
Richard Brown: I’m not trying to say anything. I think I’m staying alive
just to satisfy you.

 

~※~
Virginia Woolf: A woman’s whole life in a single day. Just one day. And
in that day her whole life.

 

Kitty: Oh, you’re reading a book?
Laura Brown: Yeah.
Kitty: What’s this one about?
Laura Brown: Oh, it’s about this woman who’s incredibly – well, she’s a
hostess and she’s incredibly confident and she’s going to give a party.
And, maybe because she’s confident, everyone thinks she’s fine… but
she isn’t.


~※~ (contrast在此)
Laura Brown: It would be wonderful to say you regretted it. It would be
easy. But what does it mean? What does it mean to regret when you have
no choice? It’s what you can bear. There it is. No one’s going to
forgive me. It was death. I chose life.

 

Sally: Why do I always have to sit next to the exes? Is this some kind
of a hint, sweetheart? Anyway, shouldn’t the exes have a table of their
own, where they can all ex together in ex-quisite agony?

I remember one morning…

~※~
Richard Brown: Oh, Mrs. Dalloway… Always giving parties to cover the
silence.

 

Laura Brown: Obviously, you… feel unworthy. Gives you feelings of
unworthiness. You survive and they don’t.

getting up at dawn…

Clarissa Vaughn: Why is everything wrong?

 

~※~
Virginia Woolf: Someone has to die in order that the rest of us should
value life more. It’s contrast.

there was such a sense of possibility!

Laura Brown: It’s a terrible thing, to outlive your entire family.

 

~※~
Angelica Bell: What happens when we die?
Virginia Woolf: What happens?
[pause]
Virginia Woolf: We return to the place that we came from.
Angelica Bell: I don’t remember where I came from.
Virginia Woolf: Nor do I.

You know? That feeling?

Louis Waters: I know, you think am I still up for this, all this
intensity, all those arguments, doors being slammed, well, you know what
it’s like.

 

Virginia Woolf: Do you think I may one day escape?
Vanessa Bell: One day.

And…and I remember thinking to myself:

Clarissa Vaughan: Just to let you know I am making the crab thing. Not
that I imagine it makes any difference to you.
Richard Brown: Of course it makes a difference. I love the crab thing.

 

Julia: You can’t see that Louis Waters is weird?
Clarissa Vaughn: I can see that he’s sad.
Julia: Well. All of your friends are sad.

“So this is the beginning of happiness…”

~※~
Clarissa Vaughn: I remember one morning getting up at dawn, there was
such a sense of possibility. You know, that feeling? And I remember
thinking to myself: So, this is the beginning of happiness. This is
where it starts. And of course there will always be more. It never
occurred to me it wasn’t the beginning. It was happiness. It was the
moment. Right then.

 

Virginia Woolf: Say something, Nessa! Didn’t you think I seemed
better?

“This is where it starts!”

Virginia Woolf: I am saying, Vanessa, that even crazy people like to be
asked.

 

Angelica Bell: Goodbye.
Virginia Woolf: Goodbye, little girl.

 

Richard Brown: We want everything, don’t we?
Clarissa Vaughn: I suppose we do.

“And, of course, there’ll always be more.”

Richard Brown: I had this wonderful notion. I took the Xanax and the
Ritalin together. It had never occurred to me!

 

~※~
Richard Brown: I’ve stayed alive for you. But now you have to let me
go.

Never occurred to me

Richard Brown: Would you be angry if I died?

 

Angelica Bell: What were you thinking about?
Virginia Woolf: I was going to kill my heroine. But I’ve changed my
mind.

it wasn’t the beginning,

~※~ (个人认为这句话起了很重要的铺垫)
Virginia Woolf: You return to what?
Vanessa Bell: Tonight. Oh, just some insufferable dinner not even you
could envy, Virginia.
Virginia Woolf: But I do.

 

Leonard Woolf: Do you think it’s possible that bad writing actually
attracts a higher incidence of error?

It was happiness.

Julia: They’re all here, aren’t they? All the ghosts… All the ghosts
are assembling for the party!

 

Clarissa Vaughn: When I’m with him I feel… Yes, I am living. And when
I’m not with him… Yes, everything does seem sort of silly.

It was the moment… right there

~※~
Virginia Woolf: Did it matter, then, she asked herself, walking toward
Bond Street. Did it matter that she must inevitably cease, completely.
All this must go on without her. Did she resent it? Or did it not become
consoling to believe that death ended absolutely? It is possible to die.
It is possible to die.

 

Virginia Woolf: It’s on this day. This day of all days. Her fate becomes
clear to her.

 

~※~
Clarissa Vaughn: He came out behind me. He put his hand on my
shoulder…”Good morning, Mrs. Dalloway.” From then on I’ve been
stuck.
Louis Waters: Stuck?
Clarissa Vaughn: Yep. With the name, I mean.


Louis Waters: The day I left him I got on a train and made my way across
Europe. I felt free for the first time in years.

 

Kitty: All my life I could do anything. I could do anything, really.
Except the one thing I wanted.

 

Virginia Woolf: I was going to kill my heroine. But I’ve changed my
mind. I fear I may have to kill someone else, instead.

that I wrestle alone…

~※~ (妮可·基德曼说这句话时, my heart stopped beating T T)
Virginia Woolf: Im dying in this town!

 

Laura Brown: I love you, sweetheart. You’re my guy.

in the dark, in the deep dark and that only I can know…

~※~~※~
Virginia Woolf: Dearest, I feel certain that I am going mad again. I
feel I can’t go through another one of these terrible times and I shant
recover this time. I begin to hear voices and can’t concentrate so I am
doing what seems to be the best thing to do. You have given me the
greatest possible happiness. You have been in every way all that anyone
could be. I know that I am spoiling your life and without me you could
work and you will, I know. You see I can’t even write this properly.
What I want to say is that I owe all the happiness of my life to you.
You have been entirely patient with me and incredibly good. Everything
is gone from me but the certainty of your goodness. I can’t go on
spoiling your life any longer. I don’t think two people could have been
happier than we have been. Virginia

 

~※~
Richard Brown: Like that morning, when you walked out of that old house
and you were, you were eighteen, and maybe I was nineteen. I was
nineteen years old, and I’d never seen anything so beautiful. You,
coming out of a glass door in your early morning, still sleepy. Isn’t it
strange, the most ordinary morning in anybody’s life? I’m afraid I can’t
make it to the party, Clarissa. You’ve been so good to me, Mrs.
Dalloway, I love you. I don’t think two people could have been happier
than we’ve been

only I can understand my own condition.


 

借此顺便吐槽一下,书中在Clarissa家崩溃(cathartic breakdown)的是Louis
Waters而不是Clarissa。这是为了平衡梅姨与另两位的演技吗?看电影前非常期待的一幕结果变味了…
不过对电影的唯一不满不过在此罢了。

You live with the threat, you tell me. You live with the threat of my
extinction.

 

Leonard, I live with it too.

 

This is my right.

 

It is the right of every human being.

 


 

 

Someone has to die in order that the rest of us should value life
more.

 

It’s contrast.

 

 


 

 

It was death.

 

I chose life.

 

 


 

 

to look life in the face,

 

always… to look life in the face…

 

and to know it… for what it is…

 

at last to know it…

 

娱乐,to love it… for what it is…

 

and then…

 

to put it away.

 

Leonard

 

always the years between us

 

always the years…

 

always the love…

 

always the hours…
