István Szabó's great film
4 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie twice in the past weeks, and I love it. This movie is as slow as exaggerating. We can feel the happiness when the lovers meet after long years, and the sadness on their faces when they realise that it will never be the same again. They still love each other, but they've changed a lot, so they don't know each other any more. The power of their relationship was the very deep trust. Can you trust someone, you don't know ? No. There is no love at first sight, they had to work hard for their love. They have to fight against their fears, against the politics, and they haven't got enough force to start this fight again to stay together, because of this lack of trust. We saw the final motive in Meet Joe Black, when the man decided to have only the good memories about the loved woman, and didn't want to stay for the upcoming harder and probably more boring days, when they accommodate to each other so left her.
