Cisne Negro


Cisne Negro


Nina é bailarina numa companha de balé em Nova York e cuja vida é consumida pela dança. Ela vive com sua mãe, a bailarina aposentada Erica, que apóia totalmente as prentensões profissionais da filha. Ambiciosa, Nina pretende conseguir o papel principal na montagem do clássico “O Lago dos Cisnes”. É quando o diretor Thomas Leroy decide substituir sua estrela Beth MacIntyre e colocar Nina em seu lugar. Mas eis que surge na companhia de dança a jovem Lily, que também impressiona Leroy. Para o diretor, Nina representa perfeitamente a inocência e a graça do Cisne Branco, enquanto Lily tem a astúcia e a sensualidade do Cisne Negro. A rivalidade entre elas se estabelece, numa relação que está no limiar do amor e do ódio.

Frases em Inglês

Erica: What happened to my sweet girl?
Nina: She’s gone!

Nina: I had the craziest dream last night about a girl who has turned into a swan, but her prince falls for the wrong girl and she kills herself.

Nina: I just want to be perfect.

Thomas Leroy: The only person standing in your way is you.

(last lines)
Nina Sayers: I was perfect…

Thomas Leroy: That was me seducing you. It needs to be the other way around.

Lily: C’mon, I’m about to burst!

Thomas Leroy: Nina, what did you do?
Nina: I felt it. Perfect. I was perfect.

Lily: How about I dance the Black Swan for you?

Lily: Did you have some sort of lezzie wet dream about me? Was I good?

Nina: It’s about a girl who gets turned into a swan and she needs love to break the spell, but her prince falls for the wrong girl so she kills herself.

Nina: Beth! I’m so sorry to hear you’re leaving the company.
Beth Macintyre: What did you do to get this role? He always said you were such a frigid little girl. What did you do to change his mind? Did you suck his cock?
Nina: Not all of us have to.
Beth Macintyre: (chuckles) You fucking whore! You’re a fucking little whore!

Thomas Leroy: I don’t want there to be any boundaries between us.
Nina: No, me neither.
Thomas Leroy: So, you got a boyfriend?
Nina: No.
Thomas Leroy: And you’ve had many in the past?
Nina: A few but no one serious.
Thomas Leroy: You’re not a virgin are you?
Nina: (nervously) No.
Thomas Leroy: So there is nothing to be embarrassed about.

Erica: It’s the role, isn’t it? It’s all this pressure? I knew it would be too much. I knew it!

Thomas Leroy: I got a little homework assignment for you. Go home and touch yourself. Live a little.

Nina: What happened?
Thomas Leroy: She walked into the street and got hit by a car. And you know what? I’m almost sure she did it on purpose.
Nina: How do you know?
Thomas Leroy: Because everything Beth does comes from within. From some dark impulse. I guess that’s what makes her so thrilling to watch. So dangerous. Even perfect at times, but also so damn destructive.

Nina: It’s sad.
Veronica: What’s sad?
Nina: Beth’s such a beautiful dancer.
Galina: Yeah, so is my grandmother.

Nina: What are you doing here?
Lily: I just came by to apologize. You’re right, I should have never spoken to him about you.
Erica: (interrupts) Sweetheart.
Nina: Give me a second.
Erica: Your dinner.
Nina: Mom! Please?
Lily: Oh, she’s a trip.
Nina: How do you know where I live?
Lily: I have my ways.
(notices Nina’s nervousness)
Lily: Jesus, relax! I got it from Susie in the office. Look, I just feel really shitty about what I did and I just really want to make it up to you, so how about I take you out to dinner?
Nina: I don’t think.
Lily: (interrupts) Ok, that’s fine! What about drinks?
Erica: Sweetie, you need to rest.
Lily: (chuckles) Jesus!
Nina: Wait.
(goes into the apartment to grab shoes and a coat)
Erica: What are you doing?
Nina: Going out!

Nina: (on the phone) He picked me, mommy! I’m the new swan queen!

Thomas Leroy: This is your moment, Nina. Don’t let it go.

Erica: Do you have any idea what time it is?
Nina: Uhh, late?
Erica: Where have you been?
Nina: To the moon!
Lily: And back.
Erica: You’ve been drinking.
Nina: Ding ding ding ding!
Erica: What else?
Nina: Huh?
Erica: (raises voice) What else have you been doing?
Nina: Oh, you want to know their names?
Erica: You need to sleep this off.
Nina: No, there were two. There was Tom, there was Jerry.
Erica: (interrupts) Be quiet, Nina!
Nina: And I fucked them both!
Erica: (yells) Shut your mouth!

Thomas Leroy: You could be brilliant, but you’re a coward.
Nina: I’m sorry.
Thomas Leroy: (yelling) Now stop saying that! That’s exactly what I’m talking about. Stop being so fucking weak!

Nina: It’s called privacy, I’m not 12 anymore!

Erica: Has he tried anything with you? He has a reputation. I have a right to be concerned, Nina. You’ve been staying late so many nights rehearsing. I hope he isn’t taking advantage.
Nina: He’s not.
Erica: Good. I just don’t want you to make the same mistake I did.
Nina: Thanks.
Erica: Not like that. I just mean as far as my career was concerned.
Nina: What career?
Erica: The one I gave up to have you.
Nina: You were 28 and only in.
Erica: Only what?
Nina: Nothing.
Erica: What!
Nina: Nothing.

Thomas Leroy: Thank you, Nina! It’s very nice. It’s very nice, but I knew the white swan wouldn’t be your problem. The real work would be your metamorphosis into her evil twin. I know I saw a flash of her yesterday, so get ready to give me more of that bite.

Thomas Leroy: What’s going on?
Nina: (crying) Lily! You made her my alternate?
Thomas Leroy: Well there’s always an alternate. Lily is the best choice.
Nina: No, but she wants my role.
Thomas Leroy: Every dancer in the world wants your role.
Nina: No, this is different. She’s after me. She’s trying to replace me!
Thomas Leroy: Nobody’s after you.
Nina: (crying harder) No, please believe me!

Beth Macintyre: Perfect? I’m not perfect. I’m nothing.

Erica: You’re not my Nina right now!

Thomas Leroy: Honestly, would you fuck that girl?

Nina: You put something in my drink.
Lily: Yeah.
Nina: And then you just took off in the morning?
Lily: In the morning?
Nina: Yeah, you slept over.
Lily: Um, no. Unless your name is Tom and you got a dick.
Nina: But we.
Lily: But we what, Nina?
Lily: Wait, did you have some sort of lezzy wet dream about me?
Nina: (whispers) Stop it.
Lily: Oh my God? Oh my God! You did! You fantasized about me!
Nina: Shut up!
Lily: (gasps) Was I good?

Erica: You’re in a good mood.
Nina: He promised to feature me more this season.
Erica: Well, he certainly should. You’ve been there long enough and you’re the most dedicated dancer in the company.

Thomas Leroy: The new production needs a new swan queen. A fresh face to present to the world. But which of you can embody both swans? The white and the black?

Erica: You’re working yourself too hard. We all have off days.
Nina: If that girl hadn’t barged in.
Erica: I’m sure she didn’t mean to. Remember when you first started? If I hadn’t taken you to each of your classes you would have been completely lost.
Nina: I’m going to talk to him tomorrow and tell him I finished it.
Erica: You don’t need to lie. You won’t convince him one way or the other.
Erica: Sweetheart, I know it’s disappointing. You start getting older there’s all this ridiculous pressure. God knows I understand. But it’s alright.

Nina: I had the craziest dream last night. I was dancing the white swan.

Thomas Leroy: We all know the story. Virginal girl, pure and sweet, trapped in the body of a swan. She desires freedom but only true love can break the spell. Her wish is nearly granted in the form of a prince, but before he can declare his love her lustful twin, the black swan, tricks and seduces him. Devastated the white swan leaps of a cliff killing herself and, in death, finds freedom.

Lily: I don’t think we ever officially met. I’m Lily.
Nina: Hi, Nina.
Lily: Yes, our new swan queen! You must be so excited. Are you freaking out?
Nina: (chuckles) Yeah.
Lily: Yeah, it’s okay. I would be losing my mind.

Nina: I came to ask for the part.
Thomas Leroy: The truth is when I look at you all I see is the white swan. Yes you’re beautiful, fearful, and fragile. Ideal casting. But the black swan? It’s a hard fucking job to dance both.
Nina: I can dance the black swan, too.
Thomas Leroy: Really? In 4 years every time you dance I see you obsessed getting each and every move perfectly right but I never see you lose yourself. Ever! All that discipline for what?
Nina: (whispers) I just want to be perfect.
Thomas Leroy: What?
Nina: I want to be perfect.
Thomas Leroy: (scoffs) Perfection is not just about control. It’s also about letting go. Surprise yourself so you can surprise the audience. Transcendence! Very few have it in them.
Nina: I think I do have it in me.

Erica: This role is destroying you.

Beth Macintyre: You make the most of it, Nina!

Thomas Leroy: You all have had the chance and the privilege to be enchanted, transported, and even sometimes devastated by the performances of this true artist of our company. She’s been a crucial inspiration to my work. A role model to all dancers and even more than that a deeply appreciated presence on our stage. You all know who I’m talking about. Ladies and gentlemen, Beth Macintyre.

Thomas Leroy: Are you okay?
Nina: I’m fine.
Thomas Leroy: Nina.
Nina: What?
Thomas Leroy: I’ve already asked Lily.
Nina: Have you announced it?
Nina: After Beth do you really need another controversy? I’m here, Thomas. I’m doing it.
Thomas Leroy: The only person standing in your way is you. It’s time to let her go. Lose yourself.

Lily: A rough start, huh? Must have been pretty humiliating.
Nina: Get out of my room!
Lily: See, I’m just worried about the next act. I’m not sure you’re feeling up to it.
Nina: Stop. Please stop!
Lily: How about I dance the black swan for you?

Nina: It’s my turn now!

Lily: So, how is he? Thomas?
Nina: I wouldn’t know.
Lily: Oh come on.
Nina: I really don’t want to talk about that.
Lily: (sarcastically) Ah, okay! You really need to relax.

Lily: What are you going to do? Run home to mommy?

Thomas Leroy: Can you tell me what the fuck happened?
(yells in French)
Nina: I wasn’t my fault. He dropped me!
Thomas Leroy: It’s a fucking disaster!

Andrew: You haven’t told me who you are.
Nina: I’m a dancer.
Andrew: No, I meant your name.
Nina: Oh, Nina.
Tom: So are you two sisters?
Nina: No.
Lily: Yes! Blood sisters.
Nina: We dance in the same company.
Tom: Ah, ballerinas. No wonder you two look alike.
Lily: So, you know, Tom and Jerry here are gay lovers.
Andrew: I’ve never been to the ballet.
Lily: Well then you are definitely not gay.
Tom: I think it’s kind of boring though, isn’t it?
Nina: No it’s not!
Lily: No. You know what? It’s just not for everyone.

Erica: No! Please! You’re not well!
Nina: (yelling) Let go of me!
Erica: You can’t handle this!
Nina: I can’t? I’m the Swan Queen, you are the one who never got the part!
Erica: (yelling) Nina!

Lily: Hey! You were amazing. Seriously, I know that things got all messed up between us. I mean, holy shit you completely blew me away!

Lily: I can’t believe he calls her that. It’s so gross.
Nina: I think it’s sweet.
Lily: Little princess? He probably calls every girl that.
Nina: No way! That’s just for Beth.
Lily: I bet he’ll be calling you little princess any day now.
Nina: I don’t know about that.
Lily: Sure he will. You just got to let him lick your pussy.

Lily: Want to spruce up? I carry a spare in case I wake up somewhere unexpected.

Nina Sayers: What’s she doing here?
Lily: He made me your alternate.

Sobre maryalcantaras

Sou uma pessoa calma e bastante tímida. Não costumo sair muito e por isso vivo na internet. Sou bem eclética em questões referentes a preferências... adoro ler, ouvir música, dançar e tomar umas biritas de vez em quando... mas o que eu adoro mesmo é DORMIR e BEIJAR!!! Meu hobbie é DORMIR. Me interesso por coisas variadas, gosto tanto de coisas simples quanto de coisas rebuscadas. "O Amor conquista-se com Amor e não impondo regras." (A.D.) E talvez tenha de praticar um pouco mais a minha tolerância...
