Breakfast at Tiffany— Think of it

Tonight I saw “Breakfast at Tiffany” again. I have watched it for third time now. It is based on Truman Capote’s 1958 novella of the same title, BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S (1961), is the story of a woman on her own making her way in the big city. The novel has a completely different ending compared with the movie. The movie version has of course got a happy ending. It’s such a classical movie and most people have watched it and love it.

BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S is quirky, funny, bewildering, serious, sophisticated and bittersweet — and as movies go, great entertainment.

I love all the dresses in the 60s.

Audrey Hepburn always got her typical hair style and dress. There is a fatty ginger cat who doesn’t have proper name, and is just called “cat”. It is so cute and really fat. I also love the theme song “Moon River”, when Audrey is singing it with a little guitar. It’s very romantic and peaceful. Nowaday, we can hear Jazz version “Moon River” all the time. It reminds me of this movie every single time I hear it.

The last conversations in the movie make me think all the time:

Are people really afraid to get married or settle down in one place, because they don’t want to be tied up. Of course not everyone does, but some of us do.

Are we called a free spirit or wild thing because we are terrified somebody’s going to stick us in a cage? Maybe we are in a cage we build ourselves. No matter where we go, we just end up running into ourselves.

Like Paul in the movie said and answered it —life is a fact, and people do fall in love. People do belong to each other; because that’s the only chance any body’s got for happiness.

Yes, I think so. We will find our soul mate and the right person in my life. What do you think?

Well. It’s quite right about it.

Tiffany 的早餐—令我陷入沉思?

今晚我再看了(Tiffany 的早餐)这部经典的电影,由奥大莉 * 赫本主演,故事讲—-在这部高雅而又风格独特的社会讽刺和苦乐参半的爱情故事中,奥黛丽-赫本成功的扮演了一个追逐百万富翁,亿万富翁的迷惘的姑娘,霍莉-戈莱特丽经历着人生的颠簸流离,努力寻找自己的位置,渴求属于自己的“理想的归宿”,然而现实是残酷的。在物欲横流的社会中,她绮丽的梦想一个接着一个的破灭消遁了。她的人性是矛盾的,既纯洁善良,但又时常近乎轻佻虚荣,她诚笃情痴,但又多愁善变,她既祈望未来,却又回顾止步。

它是一部经典的美国电影,全世界的人都知道这部影片,10个中有8个喜欢并列为必看与珍藏的影片。“月亮河”就是从这部的主题曲到现在的爵士乐版本。

它故事最后说到,常常让我思考,是否每个人都很害怕结婚和安定下来,因为那样就意味着被束缚在一个人或一个圈圈里?当然不是全部人,少数人而已。

我们都希望有自由的灵魂或狂野的心去闯荡一番,因为我们害怕陷在一个框框里,也许我们已经在那框框里,因我们自己把自己捆起来,限定在一个位子里,无论我们到那里,最终都逃不出着框框。

象Paul 在故事中说的好,也回答了这个问题,生活是现实的,总有真爱的出现,彼此可以属于彼此,因这是唯一的东西让他们感到幸福. 我也觉得总会找到你的soul mate (真心人).

你们觉得呢?

    How’s everything going? it’s regret i haven’t see the film you discussed .But after reading your comment and introdutoin to it ,i yead for watching it because ,just like moive’s summary ,we all live in a cage that made by ourselves ,but struggle to escpe from it for freedom in soul and bady.Actuallly, i always have this kind of feeling and try to find a way to begin a nwe life,but failed .it’s turn out no one could avoid the realility and fate like that.so we must have a soul mate to realize our dream which could lead us to happy life

    unfortunately,from now on ,i haven’t find my way to happy life, all my friends, do you feel happy with your life?

  2. Oh, my lovely Judy,
    I am doing very well. I have been busy working on my proposal for these days. Hope you are doing great at work. I miss you as well, but hopefully we will see very soon.

    You wrote a point about the movie which gave us to think.Are we happy? The real life teachs us that you have tied up in some frames. Some are from yourself; some are from the sociaty. Well. in personal, I am happy…I got a happy family and so many friends who love me and respect me; I am happy…I got John to cheer me up. I am happy…for who I am.

    Hope my smile will give you a good day. Miss you Judy
