When we learn we are not so important why is our instinct to be hurt? Wouldn't it be better to treat it as a key moment of insight? We engender our own beliefs. Thus we need to believe in separation as much as in beauty and love, and to be prepared. Because rupture and separation in wait for everything beautiful. In which case, why not treat these tribulations as constructive disasters that help us pierce our own mysteries.

I wanted to watch this just because of it's ratings. My wife had watched it before me and when asked, she didn't say much. Only 'there's nothing much' she said. And I was wondering how it's going to be just because it's 3 hours long.
But after getting in to it for some time, I understood that this movie is going to make me stunned. And it's going to be a well worthy watch.
The actors are doing a brilliant job. I wanted to cry in the middle just because I felt the loneliness and helplessness.
