(A) conviction....embraces
(B) expressiveness....exaggerates
(C) verisimilitude....sacrifices
(D) realism....substitutes
(E) coherence....utilizes

 

 

 


 

 

step1 文法結構

Although (the film is) based on an actual event, the film lacks __Noun___:

the director shuffles events, simplifies the tangle of

relationships, and __Verb___ documentary truth for dramatic power

 

 


 

 

step2 大概的意思

雖然這影片是基於真實的事件, 但是這影片缺乏_____ :(:可想成"更仔細的說")

導演混亂(像洗牌)事件們,簡化了糾纏的關係,且 ____ 真像為了強大的戲劇張力。

 

 


 

 

step3 作基本的分析

hint1 由文法 although SVO的子句,表示了 [空格1]必然與actual event有關連,

但是看一下 [空格1]選項,似乎不好作出選擇,我們先空著。

 

hint2 由" :" 冒號所提供的內容

hint3 且由文法 A, B, and C

似乎表達了導演把原來好個故事給弄壞了。

 

hint4 由 for dramatic power知道,導演的動機是強大的戲劇張力。

 

 

 


 

 

step4 帶入選項看看

 

(A)

Although based on an actual event, the film lacks conviction:
the director shuffles events, simplifies the tangle of
relationships, and embraces documentary truth for dramatic power.

embrace documentary truth for dramatic power變成在說導演的好話了,

這樣就違背A, B, and C的文法原則了

所以不是好的選項

 

 

(B)

Although based on an actual event, the film lacks expressiveness:
the director shuffles events, simplifies the tangle of
relationships, and exaggerates documentary truth for dramatic power.

exaggerates documentary truth for dramatic power,

感覺有點怪怪的

但不能說完全錯誤,我們先保留。

 

 

(C)

Although based on an actual event, the film lacks verisimilitude:
the director shuffles events, simplifies the tangle of
relationships, and sacrifices documentary truth for dramatic power.

 

ps.verisimilitude = appearance or semblance ofbeing true or real

我覺得滿順的

 

 

(D)

Although based on an actual event, the film lacks realism:
the director shuffles events, simplifies the tangle of
relationships, and substitutes documentary truth for dramatic power.

 

substitute "truth" for dramatic power,有點怪,

因為代換了truth就不是based on actual event了。

 

 

(E)

Although based on an actual event, the film lacks coherence:
the director shuffles events, simplifies the tangle of
relationships, and utilizes documentary truth for dramatic power.

 

utilizes documentary truth for dramatic power.變成在說導演的好話了。

這樣就違背A, B, and C的文法原則了

所以不是好的選項

 

 

 


 

 

Step 5  decision

我選(C)

等等...內心的小惡魔呼喚中!!

 

不過想一想(D),是substitute "documentary" truth,而不是 substitute truth

這樣思考一下,好樣又可以通順了。

嗯嗯嗯嗯....

 

改選(D)好了
