This movie was a choice on Amazon. I had noticed it but never watched it. Finally, I did watch it. I loved it.
This is a story about a young man who is going to have brain surgery the next morning at 10am. She is working in an ice cream parlor. They meet. What happens between 3 pm until 10 am is both romantic and tragic.
My take on Elliot and Cloye is somewhat different than other reviews. They meet in the ice cream parlor after Eliott had to stop in the parking lot to throw up. He goes in and asks Cloye if he can use the bathroom. She hands him the key. She is attracted to him. He is in another zone. Imagine you were there knowing you would probably die the next day. He wants something sweet to drink. She makes it. They talk. She is having a showing of her pictures that evening and invites him. He admires one of her pictures and leaves with that picture. He has no intention of going.
That evening he is sitting on his wooden floor surrounded by trash bags full of his stuff. A lonely scene. He decides to go to the showing just to do something. Clowe is surprised but happy to see him. She invites him to eat at a mexican restaurant. (I know, eating mexican food before brain surgery. But, hey, it's a movie)
I really love the restaurant scenes. They enter into one of those kind of goofy conversations men and women have when they first meet. He says stuff that is really not funny but Cloye laughs anyway. It is clear during these scenes that Cloye is becoming really attracted to Elliot. In fact, by the end of the meal I think Cloye is in love with Elliot.
What happens outside the restaurant is amazing. I don't remember a scene that conveyed so much meaning. They are parting, Elliot is saying the usual;"I had a nice time, thanks a lot". and some goofy stuff to go along with that. Cloye looks somewhat amused at his awkwardness. She knows at that point that she really does love him and has no intention of letting him go. She enters her phone number into his cell and tells him to call. She then steps forward and puts her arms around him. For me, this embrace is the magic moment. The look on Cloyes face as she embraces Eliott says it all. As she leaves she looks back with a little wave and a loving look.
Think of it. She is leaving with a wonderful feeling. She is in love and is looking forward to a wonderful relationship with Elliot. Elliot on the other hand knows he will never see Cloye again. He sits in his car and cries.
And it goes from there. The ending is for you to decide.
