It has been a long time since I last wrote. I have not have found the right movie to write about until I saw this film a couple days ago.
This movie is very simple, honest, and real. Michael Caine was fantastic in his role. He did it so well it felt like you know him from somewhere. I loved this movie as well as the words in it.
Such as Mr. Morgan’s conversation with Pauline. “And sometimes you meet someone… who requires all the love you have to give. And if you lose that someone, you think everything else is gonna stop too. But everything else just keeps on going. Giraudoux said, you can miss a single being, even though you are surrounded by countless others. Those people are like… like extras. They cloud your vision, they’re a meaningless crowd. They… They’re an unwelcome distraction. So you seek oblivion in solitude. But solitude only makes you wither.”
What powerful words these are. Feels good that people make films like this.
