Map of the Human Heart (1992)
Walter Russell: Women are a map. Avik, you've got to understand their longitude, and how much latitude you can take.
Avik: It's all there in the maps, sometimes all they tell you is that you're lost.
[Albertine steps on Walter's maps]
Walter Russell: You're destroying Germany. You know that's my job.
Young Albertine: Where are you from?
Young Avik: Nunatak.
Young Albertine: It's not here. You're not on the map.
Young Albertine: [to Avik] He's a half-breed man. He leaves his wife to go searching for gold. He dies. But they will love one another in heaven.
Walter Russell: Sometimes I don't know what to make of you.
Albertine: Sometimes I don't know what to make of myself. What do you see?
Walter Russell: Nothing.
Albertine: Love is blind.
Albertine: [to Avik] You're the only one who knows where I came from. That's why you've got to live.
Avik: Why do you want to bomb Dresden?
Walter Russell: There's a monster in a room. Once that room was filled with everything that was valuable to him. His train sets, his puppet theatre, his model planes. They're all broken now. All that's left untouched is his beautiful collection of Dresden china. You go into that room, you smash all his crockery, then you have broken his spirit.
Avik: If someone entered this room and destroyed her, would it break your spirit?
Walter Russell: If she were made of flesh and blood it might. This is not a race. But I don't like to lose things that are precious to me.
Rainee: They found my father on the shores of Nunatak, not more than a mile from where he was born. In his coat, wrapped in seal skin, was a small gift for my wedding, and a letter saying how proud he was of me, and how he would always love my mother.
Sister Banville: Now Avik, you can either be a good boy and be up here
[points to heaven]
Sister Banville: or a bad boy and join the groaning sad sinners in hell
[points to hell]
Sister Banville: where the protestants go.
Avik: Going down south to join up.
Avik: Because someone told be not to.
