Went and saw "A Very Long Engagement". A fine film, and I think you should all go see it because Jeunet is an awesome director, but I feel kind of aimlessly miserable and despairing now. I feel like blaming the movie. Maybe try to watch it without looking at the subtitles. Alternatively, try not having hopeless crushes on people which then (the crushes, not the people) mysteriously vansish for no apparent reason, leaving you in hope-withdrawal. Which is sort of the opposite of the movie. Maybe I'm just annoyed at the fairy-tale depiction of love in it, the way it's not really founded on anything, or involved, or detailed, or elaborated. It's just this pure and holy thing that's there and drives the story. I keep wishing I could have that and then remembering it's fictional.
