A League of Their Own (USA, 1992)
Once upon a December. Anastasia in Russian. This would be the language that she would have sang in. Everything just seems more genuine and real.
May or may not have chills right now.
One of my favorite thing to do is look up music from classic animated films in the languages of the movies setting. I love listing to music from the Lion King’s “Be Prepared” in Zulu, to Mulan’s “Honor to Us all” in Mandarin Chinese, and even Hercules’s “Zero to Hero” in Greek. Its amazing! Even though this movie isnt Disney, I do the same with the music from it.
Also, if you think “Once Upon a December” is amazing in Russian, you have not lived till you’ve herd “In The Dark of The Night” in Russian.
4. Favourite film → Into The Wild
“Two years he walks the earth. No phone, no pool, no pets, no cigarettes. Ultimate freedom. An extremist. An aesthetic voyager whose home is the road. Escaped from Atlanta. Thou shalt not return, ‘cause “the West is the best.” And now after two rambling years comes the final and greatest adventure. The climactic battle to kill the false being within and victoriously conclude the spiritual pilgrimage. Ten days and nights of freight trains and hitchhiking bring him to the Great White North. No longer to be poisoned by civilization he flees, and walks alone upon the land to become lost in the wild. - Alexander Supertramp May 1992”
My Top 100 Favorite Movie Countdown // 91. Into the Wild
“It should not be denied that being footloose has always exhilarated us. It is associated in our minds with escape from history and oppression and law and irksome obligations. Absolute freedom. And the road has always led west.”
