I have a few words for this film: It’s a less tragic version of Romeo and Juliet.
Whoever wrote the script, must win the award. (Or is that the screenplay person?) I wouldn’t really think of it as a unique love story. We’ve had better tales of tragic love affairs. But, the lines and the emotions, and the characters —Well, golly gee damn!
It’s still one of my favorite classics because somehow, it showed us there is one thing the enemies didn’t take away from them: love. No war can stop two people in love. (Or maybe that’s just in the movies. I don’t know.) No, that’s not cynical, that’s realism. 🙂
I’m saying it because it’s true. Inside of us, we both know you belong with Victor. You’re part of his work, the thing that keeps him going. If that plane leaves the ground and you’re not with him, you’ll regret it. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life.
TRIVIA: In the German version, the immortal line “Here’s lookin’ at you, kid”, became, “Ich seh’ Dir in die Augen, Kleines” which translates as “I look in your eyes, honey”.
