Documental Enzo Monteleone

Enzo Monteleone, guionista del film de Gabriele Salvatores Marrakech Espress (res a veure amb Marrakesh Express de Crosby, Stills, Nash &Young), ha filmat un documental sobre els trens oblidats d’Itàlia. El títol: Binario morto. Es podrà veure en streaming al desembre del 2013 a Fatto.it.

“Pero che spreco, che peccato, che cecità. Una rete ferroviaria vastissima abbandonata a se stessa. Stazioni morte, traversine che conducono verso il nulla, la natura che si riprende il territorio e strangola i binari, passaggi a livello che non si abbassano più, ponti di ferro belli come la Tour Eiffel che giaciono arrugginiti. Ha una sua tragica bellezza questo viaggio attravreso una delle grandi occasioni perdute del nostro Paese.”

Marrakesh Express de Crosby, Stills, Nash &Young

Whoopa, hey mesa, hooba huffa, hey meshy cuscus.

Looking at the world through the sunset in your eyes,
Traveling in the train through clear Moroccan skies
Ducks and pigs and chickens call,
animal carpet wall to wall
American ladies five-foot tall in blue.
Sweeping cobwebs from the edges of my mind,
Had to get away to see what we could find.
Hope the days that lie ahead
bring us back to where they’ve led
listen not to what’s been said to you.

Wouldn’t you know we’re riding on the Marrakesh Express.
Wouldn’t you know we’re riding on the Marrakesh Express,
they’re taking me to Marrakesh.
All on aboard the train.
All on aboard the train.

I’ve been saving all my money just to take you there.
I smell the garden in your hair.
Take the train from Casablanca going south,
blowing smoke rings from the corners of my m m m m mouth.
Colored cottons hang in the air,
charming cobras in the square.
Striped djellebas we can wear at home.
Well, let me hear ya now.

Wouldn’t you know we’re riding on the Marrakesh Express.
Wouldn’t you know we’re riding on the Marrakesh Express,
they’re taking me to Marrakesh.
Wouldn’t you know we’re riding on the Marrakesh Express.
Wouldn’t you know we’re riding on the Marrakesh Express,
they’re taking me to Marrakesh.
All on board the train,
All on board the train,
All on board!
