The Greatest Showman, Bukan Sekadar Film Biasa


Pernah lihat Hugh Jackman bernyanyi? Sebelum menonton film ini, saya belum pernah. Aktor yang berperan sebagai Wolverine di X-Men ini terlihat sangat berbeda di film The Greatest Showman (TGS). Gimana nggak? Dari tampilan gahar sebagai wolverine, di sini ia berperan sebagai seorang pengusaha di bidang hiburan, P. T. Barnum.

Barnum, seorang bankir yang didepak dari tempat ia bekerja karena perusahaan tersebut bangkrut, harus berjuang untuk menghidupi keluarganya. Bukan cuma itu, ia juga mempunyai beban moral untuk bisa membahagiakan istrinya, menjanjikannya kehidupan yang bergelimang harta, persis seperti apa yang ayah istrinya dulu berikan. 

Charity, istri Barnum adalah seorang perempuan dari keluarga bangsawan tempat ayah Barnum bekerja sebagai penjahit. Oleh karena itu, Barnum dan Charity sudah saling berteman dekat sejak kecil.  Sayangnya, Charity harus pergi karena dikirim sekolah oleh orang tuanya. 

Ritme film ini cukup cepat dan banyak diisi oleh nyanyian dan tarian. Setelah "The Sounds of Music", saya belum pernah menonton film musikal sampai niat banget gini, sih. Niat bangetnya tuh sampe nitipin Asa sebentar di kantor bapaknya sore-sore, terus emaknya pergi nonton. Sendirian. Haha. Karena bapake nggak suka suasana bioskop, dia juga nggak suka film musikal. 

Selain itu, sebelum nonton film ini saya sudah nonton trailer dan dengar lagu-lagu yang dimainkan di film TGS ini. Semacam gladiresik gitu. Haha. Jadi pas nonton, saya bisa nyanyi-nyanyi di bioskop. 
Saya suka banget semua lagu-lagu yang ada di film ini. 
Semuanya. 
Mulai dari lagu The Greatest Show, A Million Dreams, Come Alive, The Other Side, Never Enough, This Is Me, Rewrite The Stars, Tightrope, sampai From Now On. 

Kalau ditanya mana yang paling disuka, sebenernya ada tiga; Rewrite The Stars, This is Me dan A Million Dreams. Rewrite the Stars, bercerita tentang kisah cinta sepasang manusia yang demikian berbeda sehingga sulit untuk bersatu. Yang satu keukeuh bersatu, yang satu lagi keukeuh juga membantah bahwa mereka bisa bersatu. 

This is Me adalah my life's theme song. Dari yang tadinya diremehkan, mempunyai banyak kekurangan, luka dan trauma, pelan-pelan bisa bangkit dan membuktikan bahwa this is me



I am not a stranger to the dark
Hide away, they say
'Cause we don't want your broken parts
I've learned to be ashamed of all my scars
Run away, they say
No one'll love you as you are
But I won't let them break me down to dust
I know that there's a place for us
For we are glorious
When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I'm gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I'm meant to be, this is me
Look out 'cause here I come
And I'm marching on to the beat I drum
I'm not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh
Another round of bullets hits my skin
Well, fire away 'cause today, I won't let the shame sink in
We are bursting through the barricades and
Reaching for the sun (we are warriors)
Yeah, that's what we've become (yeah, that's what we've become)
I won't let them break me down to dust
I know that there's a place for us
For we are glorious
When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I'm gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I'm meant to be, this is me
Look out 'cause here I come
And I'm marching on to the beat I drum
I'm not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh
This is me
and I know that I deserve your love
(Oh-oh-oh-oh) 'cause there's nothing I'm not worthy of
(Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh)
When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I'm gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
This is brave, this is proof
This is who I'm meant to be, this is me
Look out 'cause here I come (look out 'cause here I come)
And I'm marching on to the beat I drum (marching on, marching, marching on)
I'm not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me
When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I'm gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
I'm gonna send a flood
Gonna drown them out
Oh
This is me

Kalau A Million Dreams, sebetulnya adalah lagu yang bererita tentang mimpi. Mirip-mirip dengan  I Believe I can Fly, tapi lagu ini menurut saya lebih indah, liriknya juga lebih mengena.

I close my eyes and I can see
The world that's waiting up for me
That I call my own
Through the dark, through the door
Through where no one's been before
But it feels like home

They can say, they can say it all sounds crazy
They can say, they can say I've lost my mind
I don't care, I don't care, so call me crazy
We can live in a world that we design

'Cause every night I lie in bed
The brightest colors fill my head
A million dreams are keeping me awake
I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams is all it's gonna take
A million dreams for the world we're gonna make

There's a house we can build
Every room inside is filled
With things from far away
The special things I compile
Each one there to make you smile
On a rainy day

They can say, they can say it all sounds crazy
They can say, they can say we've lost our minds
I don't care, I don't care if they call us crazy
Run away to a world that we design

[Hugh Jackman:]
Every night I lie in bed
The brightest colors fill my head
A million dreams are keeping me awake
I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams is all it's gonna take
A million dreams for the world we're gonna make

[Michelle Williams:]
However big, however small
Let me be part of it all
Share your dreams with me
You may be right, you may be wrong
But say that you'll bring me along
To the world you see
To the world I close my eyes to see
I close my eyes to see

[Michelle Williams & Hugh Jackman:]
Every night I lie in bed
The brightest colors fill my head
A million dreams are keeping me awake
A million dreams, a million dreams
I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams is all it's gonna take
A million dreams for the world we're gonna make

For the world we're gonna make

Keren, kan?
