《新天堂樂園》(義大利語:Nuovo Cinema Paradiso)
義大利導演朱賽貝·托納多雷(Giuseppe Tornatore)所執導,1988年於義大利首映。

這部經典之作1990年在台灣上映,當時的文青派的大專院校學生都看過吧!
小鎮裡,小男孩與戲院老放映師之間溫暖的互動情誼,在當年超受歡迎。
片中有一段很經典,關於愛,放映師跟小男孩說了一個故事。
Alfredo: Once upon a time, a king gave a feast. And there came the most beautiful princesses of the realm. Now, a soldier, who was standing guard, saw the king’s daughter go by. She was the most beautiful one, and he immediately fell in love with her.
But what could a poor soldier do when it came to the daughter of the king? Well, finally, one day, he managed to meet her, and he told her that he could no longer live without her. The princess was so impressed by his strong feelings that she said to the soldier: “If you can wait 100 days and 100 nights under my balcony, then at the end of it, I shall be yours."
Damn! The soldier immediately went there and waited one day. And two days. And ten. And then twenty. And every evening, the princess looked out of her window, but he never moved. During rain, during wind, during snow, he was always there. The bird shat on his head, and the bees stung him, but he didn’t budge. After ninety nights, he had become all dried up, all white, and the tears streamed from his eyes. He couldn’t hold them back. He no longer had the strength to sleep. All that time, the princess watched him. And on the 99th night, the soldier stood up, took his chair, and went away.

從前從前,有位國王為美麗的公主舉行宴會,某位正在站崗的士兵,見到公主經過,絕色佳人使他陷入愛河。

但卑微的士兵,怎配得上王女?終於有天他想方設法告白了,說沒有她不能活,公主被深情打動。她告訴士兵:「如果你能等我100天,且日日夜夜在陽台下等我,一百個日夜之後,我就是你的。」

士兵一聽,立刻開始在陽台下等候,一天、二天、十天、二十天,公主每晚探看窗外,士兵矗立不移無論風雪雨打,鳥在他頭上大便、蜜蜂叮他,他動也不動。到了第90天時,士兵蒼白消瘦,眼淚從眼眶裡流下,他已撐不住了,甚至連睡覺的力氣都沒有。公主一直注視著他,最後,在第99天的晚上,士兵站了起來,提起椅子走了。走了!

這小故事多年來一直被引用及各種解讀。

日本的「百夜通」傳說,深草少將深深愛慕著小野小町。小町告訴他,如能風雨無阻地連續拜訪她一百個夜晚,她就答應作他的情人。少將連續拜訪99夜,最後一夜遭遇風雪,在路上凍死(一說因風雪未能完成許願,傷心而死)。

小野小町(約809年—約901年)日本平安時代早期著名的女和歌歌人,是「六歌仙」和《古今和歌集》收錄作者中的唯一女性,著有《小町集》。

這故事日本漫畫裡多次出現。

小時候真的覺得,這故事好美,堅定地追尋愛情。
現在會覺得,這根本就是無意義的冷暴力,浪費生命。
只要持續去等一百天就可以得到女人,那麼這女人所謂的真愛的價值也不過爾爾,可以用無意義的肉體勞動行為得到的女人,也可以被其他人以同樣方式得到。
只是去站崗,跟腦與心都無關,兩人之間也沒有任何溝通交流,這算什麼啊?原來只需要死纏爛打一百天就能得到女人?不是很奇怪嗎這種愛情觀?

所以我個人傾向士兵等了99夜,然後走掉。那不是不在意,而是展現心意也尊重自己的做法。
