Wait! Wait! Look at me. Look at me. I'm life. I live… I, I breathe… I feel.
I only have one thing to say about this movie. After the closing credits, when Velin arose with a heavy sigh, my comment — through pretty much clenched teeth — went something like:
Now I'll make an effort and I'll get up. Yes, I'll get up — because I've only felt this way once before in my life. Just after watching Blade Runner. Yes, the director's cut, of course. I didn't get up then — I picked up the remote, thought I'd just watch a couple of scenes — and an hour or two later I realized I'd seen the whole movie, all over again. This time… this time I'll make an effort and I'll get up.
So I got up. Velin laughed.
And just in case you're wondering — no, his laugh did not destroy the atmosphere and the feeling.
