Pirate post

Continuiamo sul tema nautico, che ormai sono presa bene. Stavolta tocca ai pirati. Adoro i pirati.
E come potrei non adorare dei capelloni esotici e un po'furfanti che vivono avventure pericolose per i sette mari? Quando ero piccola uno dei miei sogni era diventare capitano di una nave pirata. Sarà antisociale, ma vi assicuro che quando ho scoperto che i pirati esistono ancora sono stata contentissima.
In seguito a questo imperituro amore ho deciso di condividere con voi i miei libri e film preferiti sull'argomento. Per approfondire la parte storica rimando alla buona vecchia wikipedia.

Let's continue the nautical theme, as I'm already in frenzy on it. This time it's pirates turn. I'm really mad for pirates. And how could one not love long haired esotic rogues who live dangerous adventures on the seven seas? When I was a child my dream was to became a pirate ship's commander. It may be antisocial, but when I discovered there are still pirates nowadays, I was really happy.
Considering this everlasting love I decided to share with you my favourite film and books about pirates. For the historical background there is a good page on the good old wikipedia.

I miei libri di pirati preferiti sono gli intramontabili classici di Salgari, il ciclo di Sandokan e il ciclo del Corsaro Nero (in particolare "Jolanda, la figlia del corsaro nero"), che avrò riletto migliaia di volte. Possiedo anche un paio di albi a fumetti d'epoca tratti dai suoi libri.
Mi piacciono molto anche le storie dei pirati dello spazio, come per esempio quelle contenute nell'immortale ciclo della Fondazione di Asimov.
Onestamente quel classico delle storie di pirati che è "l'isola del tesoro" di Stevenson non mi è piaciuto granchè nemmeno quando ero piccola. Però l'adattamento Disney ambientato nello spazio è gradevole e mi hanno consigliato molto un libro che è una sorta di seguito della storia: "La vera storia del pirata Long John Silver" di Björn Larsson. Io ci sbavo da un pezzo, ma purtroppo costa quasi 20 euri -.-

My favourite pirate books are timeless classics by Salgari: the Sandokan series and the Black Corsair series (in particular Yolanda Daughter of The Black Corsair ), that I read hundreds of times. I also have two vintage comic adaptations of his books.
I also love space pirates stories, like the ones contained in Asimov's great Foundation series.
But I have to say I didn't like so much even when I was little a classic of pirate stories, Stevenson's "treasure island". Though, Disney's adaptation settled in space wasn't bad and some people told me really good things of a book that is a sort of following of the story: "Long John Silver
" by Björn Larsson. I'd really like to buy it, but it's really expensive, around 20 euro -.-

I miei film di pirati preferiti sono veramente agli antipodi: uno è il commercialissimo "I pirati dei caraibi" (ma solo il primo) della Disney e l'altro è il semisconosciuto film d'autore "Cantando dietro i paraventi", di Ermanno Olmi.
Su "I pirati dei Caraibi" c'è poco da dire: attori bellissimi, coreografia e fotografia spettacolari, pieno di battute e assurdo quanto basta. Costumi da perderci la testa (coff *specie la camicia bordeaux bagnata di Orlando Bloom nel terzo film* coff). E visto che il film è autoconclusivo è un peccato che abbiano fatto i sequel, che contengono troppe vaccate soprannaturali, troppo mischione di leggende marinaresche e troppi colpi di scena astrusi.
Invece "Cantando dietro ai paraventi" è un film dentro una rappresentazione teatrale dentro a un film.è un film dentro una rappresentazione teatrale dentro a un film. Sembra complicato, ma il tutto si armonizza benissimo. E' la storia vera di una piratessa cinese, la vedova Ching. E, sorpresa, uno degli attori è Bud Spencer, che è davvero bravo!
Un altro film di pirati che adoro è "Hook", anche se non so se si possa considerare del tutto un film di pirati. Peter pan della Disney non mi dice molto, ma Hook, oltre ad essere stupendo, mette in luce quello che perdiamo nella frenesia della vita moderna.

My favourite pirate films are quite opposite: Disney's very commercial "Pirates of the Caribbean" (but only the first film) and the auteur film "Cantando dietro i paraventi" (singing behind the screens) by Ermanno Olmi.
There isn't so much to say about "Pirates of the Caribbean": beautiful actors, great coreography and photography, whitty and absurd enough. Gorgeous costumes (coff *Orlando Bloom's wet bordeaux shirt in the third film* coff). The film have a concluded history so it's a pity they did sequels with too much supernatural bullshit, too much nautical legends mix, and too much strange twists.
Instead "Cantando dietro ai paraventi" is a film in a theatrical play in a film. Seems puzzling, but it's really armonic. Is the true story of a chinese pirate, widow Ching. One of the actor is Bud Spencer, famous for figthing comical roles, who is a very good serious actor too.
Another film with pirates I really like, though maybe it couldn't be cathegorized as a pirates film, is "Hook". I'm not such a big fan of Disney's Peter Pan, but hook is a really good film and point what we are loosing in our frenetic modern life.

Per inciso adoro anche lo stile piratesco, soprattutto sui ragazzi (è sexy!).

Plus I really like pirate inspired style, in particular on guys (it's sexy!).
