Before Sunrise & Before Sunset
Departe de a fi niste capodopere ale cinematografiei din toate timpurile, Before Sunrise si Before Sunset sunt doua filme care merita vazute, macar o data in viata!
Ethan Hawke si Julie Delpy... somehow it worked! Rezultatul: a life-tale !
Ethan Hawke nu mi-a spus niciodata mare lucru, iar Julie Delpy, ce sa zic... cei care ma cunosc stiu ca eu plus (aproape) tot ce tine de Franta - limba, francezii, finala CM de Fotbal din '98 - nu este egal "amoure".
Asta nu inseamna ca nu mi-ar placea sa stau intr-o zi la masa unei cafenele pariziene sau ca as refuza un parfum frantuzesc sau ca nu am citit cu placere "Moulin Rouge", roman inspirat din viata lui Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec sau ca atunci cand ascult "Le vent nous portera" a celor de la Noir Desir nu simt acel "je ne sais quoi"... Dar deviez de la subiect.
Revenind la cele doua filme, le recomand asadar cu caldura... soarelui, care rasare sau apune... de preferat impreuna cu cineva cu care sa poti vorbi si despre alte lucruri decat despre vreme, fotbal si politica.
Filmele nu ofera efecte speciale de Oscar sau scene de sex pasionale. Insa nici un deznodamant previzibil. Vorbesc despre legatura dintre doi oameni ale caror vieti se intalnesc undeva, candva. Key word: vorbesc. Filmele vorbesc, El si Ea vorbesc si vorbesc si vorbesc... Vorba multa, bogatia filmului :) Nici nu apuci sa "rumegi" bine o replica, ca a si venit alta, si odata cu ea un nou subiect de conversatie. Cu greu am reusit sa nu apas butonul de pauza la fiecare cinci minute ca sa "diger" mai bine anumite intrebari si raspunsuri. Dar nu as fi reusit decat sa rup firul povestirii. Very very catchy! Dialogurile sunt de exceptie, te pun pe ganduri, te fac sa zambesti, te fac sa vizionezi filmele cu ochii, cu urechile si cu mintea larg deschise. Cam asa cum ramane si finalul. Fiecare il interpreteaza cum vrea.
In loc de concluzie, nu toate drumurile duc la Roma, unele duc la Viena, altele la Paris... (deloc intamplator, pentru ca nimic nu este intamplator!)
Ca de obicei, defect de fabricatie, nu am putut sa nu retin cateva dintre replicile din cele doua filme. Iata-le pe cele care mi-au placut cel mai mult: (impreuna cu cate o exemplificare din coloana sonora, si ea deloc de neglijat)
Celine: I believe if there's any kind of God it wouldn't be in any of us, not you or me but just this little space in between. If there's any kind of magic in this world it must be in the attempt of understanding someone sharing something. I know, it's almost impossible to succeed but who cares really? The answer must be in the attempt.
Jesse: Listen, if somebody gave me the choice right now, of to never see you again or to marry you, alright, I would marry you, alright. And maybe that's a lot of romantic bullshit, but people have gotten married for a lot less.
Celine: Actually, I think I had decided I wanted to sleep with you when we got off the train. But now that we've talked so much, I don't know anymore.
Celine: Why do I make everything so complicated?
Jesse: I kind of see this all love as this, escape for two people who don't know how to be alone. People always talk about how love is this totally unselfish, giving thing, but if you think about it, there's nothing more selfish.
Journalist #1: Do you consider the book to be autobiographical?
Jesse: Uh, well, I mean... isn't everything autobiographical?
Celine: Memory is a wonderful thing, if you don't have to deal with the past.
Jesse: Can I put that on a bumper stick?
Celine: People have an affair or a relationship and they break up, they move on and they forget!
Jesse: Maybe what I'm saying is, is the world might be evolving the way a person evolves. Right? Like, I mean, me for example. Am I getting worse? Am I improving? I don't know. When I was younger, I was healthier, but I was, uh, whacked with insecurity, you know? Now I'm older and my problems are deeper, but I'm more equipped to handle them.
Jesse: Life's hard. It's supposed to be. If we didn't suffer, we'd never learn anything.
Celine: There are so many things I want to do, but I end up doing not much.
Celine: They enjoy the goal but not the process. But the reality of it is that the true work of improving things is in the little achievements of the day.
Celine: Everyone wants to believe in love, it sells.
Celine: Every day is our last.
Celine: Nobody is gonna be everything to you.
Celine: Sometimes, I put things in drawers inside my head, and forget about it. I guess it's less painful to put certain things away than to live with it!
I just meant certain things are better off forgotten.
Jesse: I remember that night better than I do entire years.
Celine: The past is the past. It was meant to be that way.
Jesse: What, you really believe that? That everything's fated?
Celine: Well, you know, the world might be less free than we think.
Celine: Yeah, when given these exact circumstances, that's what will happen every time: two part hydrogen, one part oxygen, you get water every time.
Celine: I guess when you're young, you just believe there'll be many people with whom you'll connect with. Later in life, you realize it only happens a few times.
Celine: You can never replace anyone because everyone is made up of such beautiful specific details.

Dintre doua (filme) bune, le aleg pe amandoua! Before Sunrise before Before Sunset :)
