Quotes

Marie: I love to smoke. Smoking a cigarette is like... forgetting. When I hit rock bottom, it's all I have. Light up, smoke up, shut the fuck up. It hides the shit. The smoke... hides... the shit. There's menthol and vanilla. Some people like 'em. Menthol cigarette. Vanilla cigarette. Chocolate cigarette. Cigarette cigarette. Cigarettes clearly keep me from going crazy. Keeps me alive. It keeps me alive until I die.

A visually and sonically pleasing thrill
27 August 2010 | by alferikSee all my reviews

Lucyrybicka's review was excellent and said it all. Unfortunately, my laptop's touchpad is very sensitive, and it made me accidentally click "No" to the question whether Lucyrybicka's review was helpful to me or not - as I was trying to move the pointer across from screen right to the "Yes" button. So it should say 5 out 8 there, not 4 out of 8. Sorry about that.

I loved this film and it has both great scenes and a very tasteful use of soundtrack. I saw it on the last day of the NIFF (Norwegian International Film Festival) in a very state-of-the-art auditorium, meaning big screen, digital image, superb sound - and it was a delight to watch A real treat.

I agree: If you've ever been in love (experienced limerence), this movie will speak to you like almost no other.
