一部傳記電影,改編自知名的音樂劇,講述阿根廷的前第一夫人伊娃.裴隆(María Eva Duarte de Perón,1919~1952年,另譯貝隆夫人)、民眾暱稱為Evita(艾薇塔)的一生。同時,也從這位貧窮女子力爭出頭的野心中展現一個時代。

請聽這段主題曲,旋律優美,歌詞更是傳神:

 It won’t be easy 一言難盡。
You’ll think it strange 我講出這些心底話,
When I try to explain how I feel 大家一定會驚訝:
that I still need your love after all that I’ve done 在是是非非之後,我仍然需要大家的愛。
   
You won’t believe me 你未必肯信:
All you will see is a girl you once knew 你眼前所見,仍是你以前認識的女孩,
Although she’s dressed up to the nines 雖然衣服變得體面,
At sixes and sevens with you 雖然地位變得崇高。
   
I had to let it happen 我不得已,
I had to change 我必須改變。
Couldn’t stay all my life down at heels 我不要一生爬不起來。
Looking out of the window 當年看著窗外,
Staying out of the sun 卻看不到陽光。
So I chose freedom 所以我要自由,
Running around trying everything new 衝衝衝,奮鬥突破。
But nothing impressed me at all 我一事無成,
I never expected it to 但也沒有非分之想。
   
Don’t cry for me, Argentina 阿根廷,別為我哭泣!
The truth is I never left you 說真的:我從未離開大家,
All through my wild days 即使日子飄泊,
My mad existence 即使任性墮落。
I kept my promise 我守了承諾,
Don’t keep your distance 也請你別離開我。
   
And as for fortune and as for fame 名名利利,
I never invited them in 我一向隨緣。
Though it seemed to the world 但世人看我,
They were all I desired 卻是熱衷名利。
   
They are illusions 名利水中月,
They are not the solutions 那並非答案,
They promise to be 那似是而非。
The answer was here all the time 解決之道,老早在各位眼前:
I love you and hope you love me 我愛大家,也希望大家愛我。
Don’t cry for me, Argentina 阿根廷,別為我哭泣!
   
Don’t cry for me, Argentina 阿根廷,別為我哭泣!
The truth is I never left you 說真的:我從未離開大家,
All through my wild days 即使日子飄泊,
My mad existence 即使任性墮落。
I kept my promise 我守了承諾,
Don’t keep your distance 也請你別離開我。
   
Have I said too much 我話太多了嗎?
There is nothing more I can think of say to you 我言不盡意。
But all you have to do 你們只要看著我,
Is look at me to know that every word is true……… 就明白我句句真心!

那樣軍事動盪、那樣國族求存、那樣時勢英雄、那樣永懷領袖的時代,台灣畢竟是走過了。可是,又將走向哪裡?
