If you believe in love at first sight…
Take a closer look

I just watched the movie CLOSER and was really touched by it. About seeking for true love. About value of truth and honesty in a relationship. Read here for the synopsis.

Some quotes from the movie may explains it all:

Dan: Everybody wants to be happy.
Larry: Depressives don’t. They want to be unhappy to confirm they’re depressed. If they were happy they couldn’t be depressed anymore. They’d have to go out into the world and live. Which can be depressing.

Dan: “What’s so great about truth? Try lying for a change – it’s the currency of the world.”

Anna: Don’t stop loving me. I can see it draining out of you. It’s me, remember? It was a stupid thing to do and it meant nothing. If you love me enough, you’ll forgive me.

Alice: Why isn’t love enough?

Alice: Where is this ‘love’? I can’t see it, I can’t touch it. I can’t feel it. I can hear it. I can hear some words, but I can’t do anything with your easy words.

Larry: You don’t know the first thing about love because you don’t compromise.

The movie also has a fantastic Damien Rice song – The Blower’s Daughter. It’s very easy listening. The lyrics for which are pasted below.

the blower’s daughter

and so it is
just like you said it would be
life goes easy on me
most of the time
and so it is
the shorter story
no love no glory
no hero in her skies
i can’t take my eyes off of you
and so it is
just like you said it should be
we’ll both forget the breeze
most of the time
and so it is
the colder water
the blower’s daughter
the pupil in denial
i can’t take my eyes off of you
did I say that I loathe you?
did I say that I want to
leave it all behind?
i can’t take my mind off of you
my mind
’til I find somebody new
