导读:皮克斯动画力作《头脑特工队》终于在国内上映了。这部在北美口碑和票房齐飞的年度动画显然靠的不仅仅是卖萌。该片以成长为主题,从小女孩莱利脑袋中的五个情绪小人说起,一反传统儿童电影非黑即白的套路,让孩子看着看着笑了,让人大人看着看着哭了。

Every time I saw the poster for the new animated film Inside Out, I cringed. I felt that the color palette was tacky, and the characters did not look attractive to me at all. But I went to see the movie anyway, lured by its high score of 8.5 on the movie website IMDb. It was released in China on Oct 6.
每次看到动画新片《头脑特工队》的海报时就心生厌恶,我觉得它配色艳俗,人物形象也不够吸引人。不过鉴于它在影评网IMDb上8.5的高分,我还是去电影院看了。《头脑特工队》10月6日在中国上映。

I knew I had chosen the right movie not long after the opening scene. The story follows an 11-year-old girl named Riley who is struggling to adapt after moving to a new place. But the main characters are actually five personified emotions: Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust. They live inside Riley’s mind and help advise her through everyday life. This “boldly abstract premise”, as The Guardian puts it, got me intrigued almost immediately.
电影开场不久,我就意识到看这部电影是正确的。影片讲述的是一位名叫莱利的11岁女孩搬家后如何努力适应陌生环境的故事。不过电影的主角却是五个情绪小人:乐乐、忧忧、怒怒、怕怕和厌厌。它们住在莱利的大脑里,每天为她出谋划策。正如英国《卫报》所言,这“大胆地抽象假设”让我立刻着了迷。

Being a children’s movie, Inside Out does a great job illustrating complicated mental processes. It guides viewers through Riley’s dreams, her subconscious, her imagination and the mechanics of forgetting. But beneath its traditional adventure-based storyline, its philosophy speaks to children and adults alike.
作为一部儿童电影,《头脑特工队》巧妙地阐释了我们复杂的心理活动。它向观众展示了莱利的梦境、潜意识、想象和遗忘过程。不过在传统的冒险为主线的电影外表下,它所传递的哲思适用于孩子,也给让成年人深思。

Most of Inside Out’s audience members are no longer kids, but that doesn’t mean they’re masters of their emotions either. Lashing out occasionally, and accidental bursts of melancholy, can be frustrating. Many of us face the question: why do negative emotions have to exist at all?
大部分看《头脑特工队》的观众并非孩子,而成年人也未必都能很好地掌控自己的情绪。间或受到打击或是突然爆发的小忧郁都会让人沮丧。很多人会有这样的疑问:为什么负面情绪会存在?

Riley’s story gives us an answer. Human beings can be both strong and vulnerable. No two individuals are identical, and no one is as straightforward as a math equation.
莱利的故事给了我们答案。人类是坚强的也是脆弱的。没有完全相同的两个人,也没有一个人像数学公式一样简单、直白。

Inside Out doesn’t feature a single villain – a rarity in the realm of children’s movies, where morality is simple and good always triumphs. Yet, there is plenty of conflict in Inside Out, and that’s a testament to how complex our inside worlds are.
儿童电影的道德观十分简单——邪不胜正。而《头脑特工队》里没有这样一个通常设定里的反派,这是十分少见的。 但是它却充满了戏剧冲突,也证明了我们的内心世界是如何的复杂。

The film’s protagonist, Joy, confronts the complexity of human experience, when her reign as dominant emotion is threatened by Sadness. Joy used to believe that only positive feelings count, and she tried to keep Sadness out of the way. But Joy comes to understand that life’s bittersweet moments help Riley grow up. No single emotion is better than another.
电影的主人公乐乐面临着复杂的人生体验,特别是当她在情绪管理中的主导地位受到忧忧威胁的时候。乐乐曾一度以为只有积极的情绪才是最重要的,她努力赶走忧忧。不过她慢慢意识到生活中苦乐参半的瞬间才能帮助莱利成长。没有哪种情绪是更好的。

When I walked out of the cinema and saw the poster again at the gate, somehow I started to like the “tacky” rainbow-colored imps, representing Joy and her four colleagues. Don’t we all have these little people inside our heads?
当我走出电影院,再次看到门口的海报时,我莫名地喜欢上了这些“艳俗”的彩虹色小淘气(乐乐和她的四个小伙伴)。我们的脑袋里不也都住着这样的小人么?
