De surprise

After both sign an agreement with a company that offers to end their lives when they least expect it, a dejected millionaire and a disheartened young woman fall in love and have to find a way to get out of their binding contracts.

With a tag line like above, how was I supposed to start watching it. As I did, I realized that it was a foreign film and not the usual French or Italian or German or East European but Dutch. I don’t recall another Dutch movie that I have watched before.

    When the cold wind blows

    Just know that I have left

    The fleeting breeze

    Carries away only my yearning for you.

    When the leaves fall

    Just know that I have left

    the falling leaves

    Will only carry our memories together

    When the cold wind blows

    You will be lonely

    Even so, do not

    Think about me any more

    One time

    Your warm gaze

    Brought butterflies

    To my young heart

    What is Love
    Hoping that you are worrying about me as I am for you, and wishing you are pining for me as I do for you.
    Is this Love?
    Is it that you are not worrying about me, that you will forget about me and the moments we have shared.
    Is this Love?
    Or if neither, is it
    That I am willing to go thru everything from the very beginning just so that I can meet you again?

    Blade Runner 2049

    Sep 7th, ’17 Saturday – Watched the 10:50pm show at the Bullock Museum IMAX Theatre. But very unlike me I actually got there a few minutes after the movie had already started 😦 <rant>Mostly because of traffic that I had NOT planned for. It was game night AND ACL</rant>. But also because I had waited a few minutes past the very last minute to leave and forgot my head phones that I had to go back to get.

    Anyway, other than getting there late and missing the previews and missing the beginning of the movie (including the credits) it was really good. I am so glad that I had decided to watch it at this theater too. The sound system really made a difference to the experience.
