Chapter one



"Chapter One. He adored New York City. He idolized it all out of proportion. Uh, no, make that: "He-he...romanticized it all out of proportion. Now...to him...no matter what the season was, this was still a town that existed in black and white and pulsated to the great tunes of George Gershwin." Ahhh, now let me start this over. "Chapter One. He was too romantic about Manhattan as he was about everything else. He thrived on the hustle...bustle of the crowds and the traffic. To him, New York meant beautiful women and street-smart guys who seemed to know all the angles." Nah, no...corny, too corny...for...my taste. I mean, let me try and make it more profound. "Chapter One. He adored New York City. To him, it was a metaphor for the decay of the contemporary culture. The same lack of individual integrity to cause so many people to take the easy way out...was rapid ly turning the town of his dreams in--" No, it's gonna be too preachy. I me and, you know...let's face it, I wanna sell some books here. "Chapter One. He adored New York City, although to him, it was a metaphor for the decay of contemporary culture. How hard it was to exist in a society desensitized by drugs, loud music, television, crime, garbage." Too angry. I don't wanna be angry. "Chapter One. He was as...tough and romantic as the city he loved. Behind his black-rimmed glasses was the coiled sexual power of a jungle cat." I love this. "New York was his town. And it always would be."

Es un genio.
Ahora mismo busco esa película para verla.
Ah, y voy a entrar en el tube para encontrar este texto en VO.

Gracias, he pasado un gran rato traduciendo antes de escuchar.

Besos.

Todos somos contingentes, vale, pero, hay por ahí algunas personas por las que mereceria levantarse de la cama a las 3 de la madrugada si te llaman por telefono y te invitan a cenar.
No hay duda que el sr Allen seria una de ellas aunque uno tuviera que coger un avion de doce horas y solo llegara para recoger la mesa.

Un saludo

Adorar la ciudad dónde has nacido es privilegio de algunos, ser capaz de llevarla al cine para que todos puedan apreciar su belleza lo hacen muy pocos, Un beso

Espero poder ir algún día a NY y comprobar la magia de esta ciudad que ha sido escenario de tan buenas películas y sigue inspirando a tantos artistas.
