There it is.
[Pointing to a mountain]
This is the Eiffel Tower?
The one in Paris - it's pretty tall. Mine is two feet higher.
[They start to climb the mountain]
Have you really seen the real one in Paris?
Yes I have. And climbed 1.652 stairs to the top. Much easier than this. You doin' all right?
I think so
You're doin' great. Here
[Gives her a helping hand]
If I went to the Eiffel Tower I would take one of those elevators.

I'll keep it brief - I appreciate this movie a whole lot. When I got it I really was expecting something different, so for the majority of the movie I was disappointed, considered the plot and characters mediocre. But the last two minutes of the movie made me rethink the entire thing, man... I can not promise you an amazing ending or anything like that, because most people probably saw it coming, all I can say for certain is that it sure did affect me. I thought it would just be all typical and uninteresting and everything but having a meaningfully strung conclusion like that set my head straight and made me see what it was all about. Now I can't wait to watch it again. I consider this movie a well done story with good acting and a nice enough plot. It has strong aesthetic value through it's good looking images/scenery, too. Of course it made me completely depressed. The stories that are supposed to be life-affirming are always the ones that make me the most depressed, "A Year of Impossible Goodbyes" was supposed to be a life-affirming adventure but it's the saddest book I've ever read!
