One subtitle correction in "Transcendence"

Part of the reason I like detachment is that there are many golden sentences in the lines. There is a line that is quoted very frequently, but there are different opinions and there are many versions. The subtitles of everyone and station b are not quite right.

This sentence comes from a voiceover monologue about the child after Henry told Erica about his mother in the park.

The subtitle of the Renren version I watched is this: The child's intelligent heart can flatten the depth for many dark places. But I cannot find them, the delicate moment of its own detachment. The child's intelligent heart can heal many wounds in life, But I couldn't find a moment of detachment from myself. After listening to it repeatedly, I think the correct one should be this: A child's intelligent heart can fathom the depth of many dark places. But can it fathom the delicate moment of its own detachment? A child's intelligent heart can detect the depths of many dark abyss, but I wonder if this heart can detect the subtle moments of its own detachment?

Welcome to discuss and correct.

    As an educational film, it is comparable to Dead Poets Society, Spring in Cattle Class, Scent of Scent and Knowing Women, and its philosophical and tragic core is much higher than the previous ones.

    Life is full of setbacks and pain. The hero explores and observes his soul soberly and honestly. He is not corrupted by his own pain, and uses his wisdom to break free from limitations. There's so much drama in Adrien Brody's deep, melancholy eyes that the role seems tailor-made for him. The deep lines, the realism that hits the heart, there is no formalism in the film.

Detachment quotes

  • Henry Barthes: Y'know it's funny, I spend a lot of time trying to not have to deal... to not really commit. I'm a substitute teacher, there's no real responsibility to teach. Your responsibility is to maintain order, make sure nobody kills anybody in your classroom, and then they get to their next period.

  • Mr. Wiatt: I was in my room for 2 hours and saw one parent. Where are they? Where is everybody? It's uncanny, no air raid sirens, not bombs. It doesn't happen that way. It starts with a whisper, and then nothing.
