提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!

“I came from a hole, you know.”

 

The Tracey Fragments is a new film from the Canadian director Bruce McDonald. It stars Ellen Page, who was the title character in Juno. She plays Tracey Berkowitz, a fifteen-year-old girl in /,  looks like Winnipeg, Canada, who spends a rather eventful 24 or 48 hours running around the city, looking for her younger brother who's disappeared.

 

I can promise.

 

No one can promise it.

 

"Why would I lie? Why would I lie?"

 

Now that's a straightforward description of the plot and the movie does have one which is fairly lurid and melodramatic in places. Tracey has parents who don't really understand her, who are borderline abusive, who send her to a shrink. She has a crush on a new kid at school, she's picked on and abused and humiliated by the mean girls at school. There's a lot of the baggage of a standard teenage melodrama.

 

"I  cann't tell you what, why you wanna put me on  this bus, looking for someone."

 

What's interesting about this movie is the technique that Mister McDonald uses to tell the story, which is not only to tell it out of chronological order in a very sort of impressionistic way so that the scene flows into a scene backwards and forwards, but also using a split screen technique really a multiple window technique almost where the screen sometimes divides in 2,3,4, even as many as 100 different images that overlap and playoff each other, and kind of suggest / a free-associative psychological logic rather than an objective narrative logic to the story.

 

"My name is Tracey Berkowitz, fifteen, just a normal girl who hates herself."

 

And this makes a big difference it takes what I think would have felt like an overdone, over-wrought almost by-the-number study of teenage unhappiness and really turns it into an exploration of this girl's psychological states. So, part of what happens is that you don't necessarily know in any given scene whether something is happening in her head or being kind of filtered and distorted from her perspective or actually really happening to her. So, what you get is a very powerful study in moods and emotions in anger, the sexual vulnerability, the fear, the self-confidence, all of the different emotions that kind of buffet this young girl who is wonderfully played by Ellen Page, who is just a terrifically smart actress and who helps to make this movie that again, I think /might not have been convincing if it had been done another way into something that‘s really powerful and unusual and interesting.

 

"Where exactly did you find the tube?"

"I just found it ."

"There is something you're not telling us. Tracey, is there anything you're not telling us?"

"I'm a very passionate person."

She plays Tracey Berkowitz, a fifteen-year-old girl in what,  looks like Winnipeg, Canada, who spends a rather eventful 24 or 48 hours running around the city, looking for her younger brother who's disappeared.

 

探讨一下可以吗?说实话,真的觉得没有听到what,w的音按理应该还是很明显的,就算连读的话。

 

如果是吞音,也没有感觉为what留有间隙,因为in后面马上就跟进了looks like...讲话的人很随意的感觉,looks like就像个插入语,有可能没有这个语法,但听上去还是很自然的

 

是为了解释成in what (a place which) looks like Winnipeg, Canada 么? 如果是那样,也情有可原了。

 

不过整理稿好像是有what,大家也都写了what,所以也有可能我没感觉到what。

 

立存此照~
