i've loved you so long

This is the film Kristin Scott Thomas has been waiting for all her life. It's the role she will be remembered for. Because nobody can sit silently and smoke a cigarette and tell a story like her. Her face has all the eloquence of a silent film star.

someone fly to the states NOW as a MATTER OF STATE URGENCY. must see this NOW or i will lose it.

con il sole pure la notte

Tonight: `Only' (2008)

when you are blue
only a canadian film will do.
into my lap, this gem falls.
its european premiere.
being on the mailing list of the canadian embassy has it uses.

From the press kit:
Daniel lives in a motel, managed by his parents, in northern Ontario. People come, people go, Daniel hardly notices. Until one day a girl arrives and changes his world.

ONLY is a glimpse into the heightened impressions and dreams of two unlikely 12-year-olds. Over the course of a single day, they venture on a journey, exploring deep secrets, dark fears, and first love in a pure and powerful meeting of young hearts and minds.

and a review:
A deceptively simple film about two lonely, near-pubescent kids stuck in a snowy nowhere town, Only gently unfolds to become a deft – and blunt – exploration of the anxious yet romantic world of teens (Globe and Mail)

"People over forty can seldom be permanently convinced of anything.
At eighteen our convictions are hills from which we look; at forty-five they are caves in which we hide."
