Luigi, Thank you for everything ! LES]

Sorry, I do not want to compare with Marlon Brando .
I just like his acting & I love that movie with that famous monologue-scene .
His real voice takes getting used to german ears .
☞ Here is another interpretation with my real tears in the english part & a complete different interpretation in german language ! Which one is the better one ???

Apocalypse Now - The Reading of the Horror-Monologue of Colonel Walter E, Kurtz in English and German (Deutsch) by me, Lesley Paul, August 2012.

English Text :

"I've seen horrors ... horrors that you've seen. But you have no right to call me a murderer. You have a right to kill me. You have a right to do that ... but you have no right to judge me. It's impossible for words to describe what is necessary to those who do not know what horror means. Horror. Horror has a face ... and you must make a friend of horror. Horror and moral terror are your friends. If they are not, then they are enemies to be feared. They are truly enemies. I remember when I was with Special Forces. Seems a thousand centuries ago. We went into a camp to inoculate the children. We left the camp after we had inoculated the children for Polio, and this old man came running after us, and he was crying. He couldn't see. We went back there, and they had come and hacked off every inoculated arm. There they were in a pile. A pile of little arms. And I remember ... I ... I ... I cried. I wept like some grandmother. I wanted to tear my teeth out. I didn't know what I wanted to do. And I want to remember it. I never want to forget it. I never want to forget. And then I realized ... like I was shot ... like I was shot with a diamond ... a diamond bullet right through my forehead. And I thought: My God ... the genius of that. The genius. The will to do that. Perfect, genuine, complete, crystalline, pure. And then I realized they were stronger than we. Because they could stand that these were not monsters. These were men ... trained cadres. These men who fought with their hearts, who had families, who had children, who were filled with love ... but they had the strength ... the strength ... to do that. If I had ten divisions of those men, then our troubles here would be over very quickly. You have to have men who are moral ... and at the same time who are able to utilize their primordial instincts to kill without feeling ... without passion ... without judgment ... without judgment. Because it's judgment that defeats us."

Deutsch / German Text :

"Das Grauen. Das Grauen hat ein Gesicht. Und man muss sich das Grauen zum Freund machen. Das Grauen und der moralische Terror sind deine Freunde. Falls es nicht so ist, sind sie deine gefürchteten Feinde. Als ich bei den Green Berets war...

Wir gingen in ein Lager, um einige Kinder zu impfen. Wir verließen das Lager, nachdem wir die Kinder gegen Polio geimpft hatten. Da kam ein alter Mann hinter uns hergelaufen, und er weinte ... Wir gingen in das Lager zurück. Sie waren inzwischen gekommen und hatten jeden geimpften Arm einfach abgehackt. Sie lagen auf einem Haufen ... Und ich erinnere mich, wie ich schrie, ich weinte wie ein altes Waschweib. Ich wollte mir die Zähne herausreißen, wusste nicht mehr, was ich tun wollte. Und ich will mich daran erinnern. Ich will es niemals vergessen. Ich will niemals vergessen.

Und dann war mir, als würde ich durchbohrt, durchbohrt von einer diamantenen Kugel, direkt durch die Stirn. Und ich dachte, mein Gott, diese Schöpferkraft, dieses Genie dieser Wille, das zu vollbringen. Vollkommen, unverfälscht, vollendet, kristallen, makellos. Und dann wurde mir klar, dass sie viel stärker als wir waren. Weil sie alles ertragen konnten. Das waren keine Ungeheuer, geschulte Einheiten. Diese Männer, die mit ihrem Herzen kämpften, die Familien haben, Kinder, die erfüllt sind von Liebe. Dass sie die Kraft haben, die Kraft, das zu vollbringen. Wenn ich aus solchen Leuten bestehend zehn Divisionen hätte, dann wären wir unsere Sorgen hier rasch los. Denn dazu gehören Männer, die Überzeugungen haben. Und die dennoch imstande sind, ohne Hemmungen, ihre ursprünglichen Instinkte einzusetzen, um zu töten. Ohne Gefühl, ohne Leidenschaft. Vor allem ohne Strafgericht, ohne Strafgericht. Denn es ist das Strafgericht, was uns besiegt."
