Most Hollywood movies are about romantic love, or at least sex. But Christopher Nolan's epic movie “Interstellar” has almost no couples, so you don’t get the charged romance you have in normal movies where a man and a woman are off saving the world.

大多数好莱坞电影是关于浪漫的爱情,至少会包含一些性吸引元素。但是,克里斯托弗·诺兰的史诗般电影“星际穿越”中几乎没有塑造情侣角色,所以,观众不会置身于普通电影那种满满的浪漫气氛,也看不到一对男女一起拯救世界的浪漫情节。

 

Instead, there are the slightly different kinds of love, from generation to generation, and across time and space.

诺兰电影传达的,是另一种不寻常的爱,是跨越一代又一代人,穿越时间和空间的爱。

 

The movie starts on a farm, and you see a grandfather's love for his grandkids and the children's love for their father. (Mom had died sometime earlier).

故事开始于一座农场,你会看到一位祖父对孙子孙女的爱,以及孩子们对父亲的爱(母亲已经在几年前去世了)。

 

The planet is hit by an environmental catastrophe, and, in that crisis, lives are torn apart. The father, played by Matthew McConaughey, goes off into space to find a replacement planet where humanity might survive. The movie is propelled by the angry love of his abandoned daughter, who loves and rages at him for leaving, decade after decade.

地球遭遇了环境灾难,在这场危机中,父亲与孩子被迫分开。由马修·麦康纳(Matthew McConaughey)饰演的父亲,进入太空,试图找到一颗人类可生存的星球来代替地球。被留在地球上的女儿,深爱父亲,但又因为父亲的离开而憎恨他,十年如一日,对父亲愤怒的爱推动着电影情节的发展。

 

On top of that, there is an even more attenuated love. It's the love humans have for their ancestors and the love they have for the unborn. In the movie, 12 apostles go out alone into space to look for habitable planets. They are sacrificing their lives so that canisters of frozen embryos can be born again in some place far away.

除此之外,还有另外一份绵延的爱。这是人类对祖先的爱,以及对尚未出生的下一代的爱。在电影中,十二位先驱者各自在太空中展开探险,寻找适合生存的星球。为了能让罐中冷冻的胚胎在某个遥远的星球获得新生,他们献出自己的生命。

 

Nolan wants us to see the magnetic force of these attachments: The way attachments can exert a gravitational pull on people who are separated by vast distances or even by death. Their attention is riveted by the beloved. They hunger for reunion.

诺兰导演希望我们看到这些牵挂所具有的磁力。即便是相距万里,亦或阴阳两隔,这种牵挂仍然能够产生万有引力般的作用。他们关注着挚爱亲人,他们渴望与亲人相聚。
