“我虽在江湖,但江湖没有我的传说。”

最喜欢这部电影的结尾:曾经视美食为生命的科伯先生,因为对老鼠做的东西做了一次公平的评价,他的信誉和名声扫地,再也做不了美食评论家。

我记得他之前的家和他的穿着。暗色西装笔挺,衬衫领口塞着小围巾,长长的走廊两边挂着猩红的窗帘,他坐在大厅的尽头咔嗒咔嗒地打着写字机。那姿态,颇有点指点江山的感觉。他喜欢提起自己小食指,指着对面的人说话,他很高,因为经常要俯视别人,所以有点驼背。就是他,喝着红酒写美食影评,用似褒实贬的语气批评厨神餐厅是意大利快餐食品的典范。

很庆幸这个人的高贵不是伪装的,他敢于面对自己错误的判断。当他认识到感动自己的饭菜是一个老鼠做的,在一夜长坐之后,写下了这样的美食评论:

"In many ways the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little, yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But, the bitter truth we critics must face is that, in the grand scheme of things ... the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so.

  

"But there are times when a critic truly risks something, and that is in the discovery and defense of the new. The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations. The new needs friends."



价值观颠倒是造成人无力向善的根源。向善的科伯先生写完这篇评论以后就再也不是美食评论家了。他戴着瓜皮小帽,围着普通老年人才会围的灰白围巾,成为了一个小企业家,却能享受天下独一的美食。

小老鼠的烹调成为一个秘密,“我虽在江湖,但江湖却没有我的传说”。它热心于无名的烹饪,绽露自己的天才,也许要在有一天它死后才能被发现:原来那么多人称赞的食物出自无名鼠辈之手。


最后提一提这里面的特色英文学习:

It s the purest fact, we French know the truth
这是最纯的事实, 我们法国人知道真相
 
The Best Food in the World is made in France (法语发音:Fu Rang Si)
 
The Best Food in France is made in Paris (法语发音:Pa re)
 
and the Best food in Paris some say(“有一些人说”,这种说法就意味着一个“故事”的开始) is made by Chef ...Gusteau。
 
Chef Gusteau's restaurant is the toast(Toast 意识是干杯,但在这里toast 代表在巴黎被人们庆贺的) of Paris, booked 5 months in advance(提前五个月订位), and it's dazzling(指的是耀眼的登上..) itself to the top of the French cuisine(发音:k u e zing) has made its competors..envious(羡慕).
 
He is the youngest chef to achieve a five star rating.(最年轻得到五星级的评价的厨师)
 
Chef Gusteau's book "Anyone can cook" climbs to the top of the best seller's list(热卖书榜首)..but not everyone has rendered(给与) its success (0:32) 但不是每一个人都给与优等的评价。
 
以上这一段话有法国口音,但是我觉得讲得还蛮有味道。。
 
镜头转向著名饮食大师 Anton Ego:
Amusing title(很有意识).."Anyone can cook" ..What's even more amusing is that...is that Gusteau seemed to believe it. I on the other hand..take cooking seriously..I don't think anyone can do it. (0:45)
... (注意Anton 说话的语气。。一副很正经的样子,语气傲慢。。注意他停顿的地方。。声音的起伏。。一般上流社会也爱用这种口音。。大家可以参考参考)
 
小老鼠讲故事开始。。
 
Remy:

What is my problem?

Remy:

Remy says to his dad:
 
So what is wrong with having highly developed senses?

Remy:

如果没人要,我们为什么要偷呢?

If "you are what you eat" thenI only want to eat the good stuff
如果说 “你吃什么就代表你是什么样的人”那么我只要吃好东西。
 
but to my dad:
 
Food is fuel, get picky with what you put in the tank, your engine is gonna die. Now shut up and eat your garbage.
食物就是汽油, 如果你对胶乳你又想的又太挑剔的话,你的引擎将会死去。现在给我住嘴。。吃你的垃圾吧。
 
Remy:
If we're gonna be thieves, why don't we steal the "good stuff" from the kitchen, where there s no poison.
如果我们是小偷,要不我们去厨房偷一些“好吃的东西”。。那里的东西没有毒
 
Remy's father:
First of all, we are not thieves! Secondly stay out of the kitchen and away from the humans..it's dangerous.
首先,我们不是小偷!第二远离厨房和人类。。他们很危险。
 
Remy:
I know I m suppose to hate humans but there's something about them.. they don t just survive..they discover...they create..they just..look at the way they do with the food..
我知道我是应该憎恨人类但是他们有体重说不出的。。他们不单单为活着而活着。。他们会发现。。会创造。。就拿他们对待饮食来说吧。。。
 
TV Gusteau:
How could I describe it? Good food is like music..you can taste,color, you can smell...There s excellence all around you...You only need to stop to consider it(?) (4:03)
我怎么来形容呢?好吃的食品就相音乐。。你可以尝到味道。。颜色。。你可以闻到。。实在太美妙了。。你只要定下心来感受它。
