I couldn't say how much I love about the opening line of the script:

"Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the Arrivals Gate at Heathrow airport. General opinion’s starting makes out that we live in a world of hatred and greed but I don't see that. Seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it's not particularly dignified, or newsworthy - but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends.

Before the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate and revenge - they were all messages of love. lf you look for it, I've got a sneaking suspicion you'll find that love actually is all around."

I wasn't lucky enough to feel love at Heathrow airport. I arrived alone with coughs, and left alone with tears, which made this movie "the last movie I want to watch for a second time". But my stay in Britain resembled this movie. It even resembled love: pain, pitty, joy, gloom, happiness, disappointment, unfortunately there was no courage.

本来想搬家前把所有的衣服都洗一次,结果发现洗衣液和消毒水都用完了。平时开到12点的超市今天休业。我邀请了室友一起看这部电影,结果在搬家前把网给耗完了,我们不得不又续上网费。我折衣服,她提防着蟑螂(假想敌),一边有一搭没一搭地聊着电影,像是《请回答1988》里围坐在一起剥菜叶的家庭主妇。

我一年前的直觉得到了印证:果然南航机上版本有删减镜头。华生的所有镜头都删减了,因为他和女演员演一对非常佛系又害羞的成人片演员。Sara和设计师make out 的镜头也删减了,不过无所谓。如果是我这种直觉,那么今天的直觉应该不需要印证了,哪怕是Schrodinger's gut feeling.

我细细数着在这间公寓里还剩下的时间,好像已经没有那么多留恋。看着眼前室友留下的散落遍地的衣架、书、厨具、甚至鞋子,还有我大摞的书和衣服——我没什么家具,终于有点值得欣慰的事情了。肉体上的疲惫是是情绪麻木的一剂良药。

我们说西班牙女人总有一种粗粝又野性的美,和冷酷深情又笨手笨脚的科林费尔斯形成对比。影片在他的求婚和Sam的告白处达到高潮。但我总觉的Sam的告白更让人感动。也许因为那是孩子,所有人都愿意让他不受伤害,所有人都想为他加油。室友甚至握起双拳,露出了为儿子在校运会上加油的慈母般的微笑。

我也为他加油。

我折完两箱子衣服,电影就结束了。我曾经说过喜欢这部电影的原因在于它不是一部强行festive强行真善美的电影,几乎一开头就是欺瞒背叛,爱而不得,失之交臂。或许就是《霍乱时期的爱情》里苦杏仁的味道。

But it's Christmas, you can tell the truth.

信徒他们欢庆主的诞辰。

大众欢庆家人的团聚。

褪去宗教色彩,我们心怀敬畏, 做个好人。在节日的庇护下,说出平日不敢说的话。这就是这部电影最大的意义吧。

Wi-Fi好像终于连上了。

Merry Christmas:)
