I AM DINA

I AM DINA  — TRAILER

This 2002 Norwegian adaption drama is available on You Tube in parts, but I watched it

via  Netflix,  for YT see below.  I enjoyed this flick, and the soundtrack.

For those watching movies with others or are concerned about such things,  there is nudity and  death.   All of the versions I found are in English.  Though the actors have various accents all had good diction so they could be easily understood.

I found this information in the comments:

“It is an international co-production. It has mostly Norwegian actors, along with Depardieu and Eccleston etc., the director is Danish and production is shared between many countries. The book is by a Norwegian writer and it takes place in Norway.”

From Me:

I am going to read the book from which the film was adapted:  DINA’S BOOK  by   Herbjorg Wassmo  translated from Danish to English by Nadia M. Christensen .  I hope to enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed OUT OF AFRICA  by   Isak Dinesen  (nome de plume  used by the Danish author Baroness Karen von Blixen-Finecke).

I did read in reviews and comments on Amazon that  the Kindle version sold on amazon has typos.  Dunno, myself, but I sure hope the print book doesn’t have typos.  Whereas I often don’t see my own typos, those in books glare at me and are disturbing.   You can tell which publishers edit with some sort of spell check and which publishers actually have human proof readers.

Lyrics:
I træets øverste grene
Sad en pige så alene
Et ansigt sig spejlede i tællelampens skær
Borte var alle hun havde haft så kær
Og dødens vind den strejfede hendes kind

I træets øverste grene sad en pige så alene
Men håbet det boede i hendes unge sind
Som lyset det flakkede i den røde aftenvind
Og livet kyssede hendes kind

Alene de andre er døde
Alene alle er døde
Alene resten er døde
Lys mit lys

3 mile derfra sad i sorg en ungersevend
Hand troede ej mere skulle få en ven
Modløs han stirrede mod aftenhimlen grå
I det fjerne et glimt ud i mørket han så

Han løb gennem stok han løb over sten, gennem moser og krat og forrev sine ben
Men ensom at være det ville han ej, og ran så af sted på den lange mørke vej
Han løb over mark og han løb gennem skov, alt imens pigen sad i træet og sov
Han løb gennem hegn og løb over krat, han stred sig igennem den mørkeste nat

Alene de andre er døde
Alene alle er døde
Alene resten er døde
Lys mit lys

In the tree’s upper branches
Sat a girl so alone
A face is mirrored in counting the lamp inserts
Gone was all she had held so dear
And the wind of death roamed her cheek

In the tree’s upper branches sat a girl so alone
But hoped it lived in her young mind
As the light that flickered in the Red evening wind
And life kissed her cheek

Only the other is dead
All have died alone
The rest have died alone
Light my candle

3 mile away sat in mourning a ungersevend
Hand thought not more should get a friend
Dejected he stared toward the evening sky gray
In the distance a glimpse into the darkness he saw

He ran through the cane he ran over rocks, through marshes and scrub and forrev his legs
But lonely to be the he would not, and ran so off on the long dark road
He ran across the field and he ran through the forest, all the while the girl sat in the tree and slept
He ran through the fence and ran over scrub, contending it through the darkest night

Only the other is dead
All have died alone
The rest have died alone
Light my candle

Koder På Snor – Valvran

Valravn – Koder På Snor

1st track on the album “Koder På Snor” [2009]. Enjoy.

Hun lister rundt
Tip tap
Hun plukker æblerne
Bum plum
Giver til guderne
På en bro
Tip tap
Sten der falder
Bum plum
Papirflyvere i luften
Wish wush
Svæver vi
Wish wush wish

Ti ikke stille sig hvad du ser

Koder på Snor
Pling plang
Koder på Snor

Jeg har syndet, spyttet
I kærlighedens ansigt
Åbn mine øjne, jeg rejser ned i afgrunden
Skubber til plader, de flår mig i stykker
Smelter som lava ind i verdens kerne

Koder på Snor
Pling plang
Koder på Snor

She lists around
Tip tap
She plucks the apples
Bum plum
Gives to the gods
On a bridge
Tip tap
Stones falling
Bum plum
Paper airplanes in the air
Wish wush
Floats we
Wish wush wish
Ten do not ask what you see
Codes on the leash
Pling plang
Codes on the leash
I have sinned, spat
In love’s face
Open my eyes, I travel into the abyss
Push plates, they rip me to pieces
Melts like lava into the world’s nuclear
Codes on the leash
Pling plang
Codes on the leash
