关于Darkness 和 Silence那两个谜都不难理解，白雪公主那个是不是涉及到文字游戏/word trick 不好翻译？ 还请哪位不吝赐教。倒是昨天看到维基百科才知道原来最后那个谜语Fat, fat, ugly, ugly, 的谜底竟然是犹太人。一下感觉又沉重了不少。而且医生说是一个维也纳朋友给他的谜，在这里维也纳又有什么暗含意义？ 或许是多心。
Fat, fat, ugly, ugly, all yellow in truth, if you ask me where I am I answer "here, here, here". Walking I make poo poo, who am I?
Because of Lessing's previous friendship with Guido, there is the expectation that he will be the "good German" who might reject the insanity of the Nazi system. However, in the second half of the film Lessing reappears a s a broken man who has retreated into the part of his mind occupied with solving riddles. The riddles from the first half of the film are quite beautiful, even poetic. The final riddle that Lessing asks Guido to solve seems like a metaphor for the cowardice and failure of the better angels of German civilization to resist the Nazis.
Fat, fat, ugly, ugly, all yellow in truth, if you ask me where I am I answer here, here, here.... Walking I make poo poo, who am I? (Grasso, grasso, brutto, brutto, tutto giallo in verita, se mi chiedi dove sono ti rispondo qua qua qua.... Camminando faccio poppo, chi son io dimmelo un po'). (Benigni 172)
Benigni has explained the riddle as a "nonsense" that appears at a point when Guido expects a more rational response from Lessing. As Lessing's name recalls the German traditions of the Enlightenment, the character's retreat into a cacophony is a deep blow for Guido and emphasizes the utter irrationality of the Shoah. （Unpublished interview with Roberto Benigni by Carlo Celli, Nov. 3, 1999）
