HOPE is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul, And sings the tune without the words, And never stops at all, And sweetest in the gale is heard; And sore must be the storm That could abash the little bird That kept so many warm. I 've heard it in the chillest land, And on the strangest sea; Yet, never, in extremity, It asked a crumb of me. -Emily Dickenson
The Very Long Engagement was a surprise hit for me. For someone who doesn't watch foreign films that often, it was very simple to follow. In parts of the movie, even if there were no words spoken.. written.. it wouldn't be hard to figure out what was happening. Love captivates this woman- Her naive stance on the world and determination for the truth is what brings this movie together so nicely. A tale of drama, love, humor, hope and sorrow. This movie took a hold of me from the beginning and didn't let go until well after it was over.
