The Thing Called Love (1993) by Peter Bogdanovich
“We met when we were both 19, and he bummed a cigarette off me in an LA club. This sounds incredibly cheesy but I knew I would be with him one day. It just felt fated between us, and there was such chemistry, I think we recognised something in each other. We came from very different families, but perhaps there were some broken parts in each other we recognised. We found safe harbour.“ - Samantha Mathis on River Phoenix
Second souffle, toujours en cours
Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance (2002)
Look at this little guy peeking out.
Normal People (2020). Everybody is loving the love story, and I mean, that’s great, but I think that what the serie managed to do ( maybe even better than the novel ? ) is a realistic portrait of students’ life. We are pretty used to teen dramas or 20somethings shows only showing the parties, the drugs, the alchool, and all that crazy stuff that we all know nobody is actually living. When we happen to do something just even close to that stereotypical lifestyle we immediately post it on Instagram, but the truth is that we spend most of the time with ourself, worring about the next exams, or criyng under the shower, or we listen to our favourite songwriter making coffee before coming back to our study session. Always a little anxious, a little sad, nostalgic about what we are leaving back and yet dissatisfied about what’ve accomplished. I love Normal People ( the serie) for all those beautiful shots about the ordinary life of young people : days of struggle in the library, of lonely walks to lesson ( at least before covid 19), of making coffee in silent, of starring outside the window asking yourself many things nobody has the answer for. I’m really grateful for that. As a student of law in university I really needed it. We sometimes need someone to tell us, or show us. that our life is not terrible, it’s just normal.
