Atomic Blonde si Luftballons

Cel mai de curand am vazut la cinema Atomic Blonde, filmul in care Charlize Theron e un fel de James Bond feminin, in Berlinul dinaintea caderii zidului.

Sunt atat de rare filmele cu femei in rol principal, daramite si puternice, si imi plac atat de mult.. Dar ma si enerveaza cand imi dau seama ca pierd jumatate din bucuria vietii de iubitor de cinema pe care o au barbatii, care au in aproape toate filmele un personaj principal cu care se pot identifica..

Rolul modelelor este extrem de important. Apropo de scaderea numarului de femei in IT, vedeti aici un grafic si o explicatie interesanta, legata de lipsa femeilor din IT din filme si cum a afectat asta viata reala.

Filmul mi-a placut foarte mult si datorita soundtrack-ului numai cu muzica din anii '80 - teoria mea e ca m-au uitau mult ai mei pe langa radio cand eram mica, si de asta imi plac toate melodiile din perioada aceea.

Am regasit in film melodia aceasta, 99 Luftballons. O stiam, e super cunoscuta, dar nu stiam despre ce e vorba in ea si mi s-a parut foarte interesant cand mi-a povestit Alex un rezumat gasit online.



Niste copii din Berlinul divizat, cumpara cu toti banii pe care ii au si elibereaza pe de-o parte a zidului mai multe baloane rosii. Oamenii si mai ales armata din tabara inamica se alarmeaza insa vazand obiectele pe cer, si poate chiar si dorind razboiul, trimit avioane care distrug orasul. Ramas printre ruine, cel care povesteste da drumul si ultimului balon.

Pun mai jos si traducerea cantecului pe care am gasit-o in engleza:

You and I in a little toy shop
Buy a bag of balloons
With the money we've got
Set them free at the break of dawn
'Til one by one, they were gone
Back at base, bugs in the software
Flash the message,
"Something's out there"
Floating in the summer sky
99 red balloons go by.

99 red balloons
Floating in the summer sky
Panic bells, it's red alert
There's something here
From somewhere else
The war machine springs to life
Opens up one eager eye
Focusing it on the sky
Where 99 red balloons go by.

99 Decision Street,
99 ministers meet
To worry, worry, super-scurry
Call the troops out in a hurry
This is what we've waited for
This is it boys, this is war
The president is on the line
As 99 red balloons go by.

99 Knights of the air
Ride super-high-tech jet fighters
Everyone's a Superhero
Everyone's a Captain Kirk
With orders to identify
To clarify and classify
Scramble in the summer sky
As 99 red balloons go by.

As 99 red balloons go by.

99 dreams I have had
In every one a red balloon
It's all over and I'm standin' pretty
In this dust that was a city

If I could find a souvenier
Just to prove the world was here...
And here is a red balloon
I think of you and let it go.
