Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress

快到新年了,或许你终于有时间坐下来看看电影。 今天想为大家介绍的是一部2002年上映的电影--《巴尔扎克和小裁缝》。
Soon it will be new year. Maybe you will have some time to sit down and watch some good movies. Today I am going to introduce a movie, Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress, which premiered at 2002.



这部影片讲述了一个文革时期发生在两个下乡知青和一位美丽的当地姑娘之间的爱情故事。
This movie tells a love story between the two young men from the big city and a beautiful girl in the village during the Cultural Revolution.

罗明和马剑铃是一同插队的知青。
Luo Ming and Ma Jianling are two young men from the big city. They are sent to a remote village to be re-educated during the Cultural Revolution.

对他们两名在城市中长大的年轻人来说,插队的劳动生活枯燥艰苦。
For the two young men, who grew up in the city, the life in the village is harsh and boring.

但是,美丽小裁缝的出现让他们对生活有了激情。
But the beautiful little seamstress makes them feel life is full of passion again.

他们同时爱上了这个姑娘。
They both fall in love with the girl the same time.

小裁缝不识字,两人从另一位知青那里偷来了禁书为姑娘念书,教姑娘识字。
The little seamstress can not read. So they steal some forbidden books from another young man, read the books for the girl, and teach her how to read.

书中的故事为姑娘展现了完全不同的外面的世界,小裁缝决定离开小小的山村去开始崭新的生活。
The stories in the books show the girl a picture of totally different world outside. She decides to leave the little village and start a brand new life.

影片中的对话全为四川话。四川话与普通话发音很接近,但是声调有差异。下面的视频有中文字幕。试试你能听懂多少。  :)
All the dialogue in the movie are Sichuan Hua (Sichuan dialect). The pronunciation of Sichuan Hua is very close to Mandarin. But the tones are different. The following video will show you this movie with Chinese subtitles. Let's see how much you could understand.  :)
