The Graduate 《毕业生》(精讲之三)
[ 2006-10-08 09:00 ]

影片对白 Benjamin, I am getting pretty tired of all this suspicion.

3. to be available to

“可以得到的;可以得手的;随时为他服务”。Mrs. Robinson 明确告诉本,他可以随时与她发生关系。

4. I found you're attractive.

“我觉得你真可爱”。这次勾引本虽然没有成功,但是,看到本惊慌失措,而且并没有义正言辞地斥责她,Mrs. Robinson 感到有仍然希望。Find someone / something... 是一个常用的结构,表示认为某人或某事如何。后面加形容词。如:我觉得这本书很有意思:I find the book interesting. 我觉得这个人很没劲:I find the person boring.

文化面面观

To rob the cradle 老少配

在这部电影里,我们可以用一个确切的短语来表示 Mrs. Robinson对本的追求和两人之间的关系: To rob the cradle 或者说Mrs. Robinson robbed the cradle. 这个俚语形容年纪较大的人追求年纪相差较大或很年轻的异性,与其谈恋爱或结婚。中文里老夫少妻和老妻少夫说的就是这个意思。但平时也可以当作一种夸张的,玩笑的说法。如:A forth-year boy is dating a freshman girl. He has robbed the cradle.一个大四的男生与一个一年的女生谈恋爱。简直是老少配嘛。

Mrs. Robinson对本的引诱进入了是步步紧逼,不由分说的阶段。而本则惊慌失措,仓惶躲闪。可以说是惊心动魄。几个回合下来,Mrs. Robinson愈发成竹在胸,势在必得。如果不是Mr. Robinson恰好赶回,后果是显而易见的。
