    Seriously (one of) the most

    superb, sharp, albeit

    (poles apart/paradoxically)

    slight, splendid and

    suitable swan song(s) supposable.

    "I understand.

    I understand,

    completely."

    I adore you, Anton Yelchin;

    I will always savor your spirit.

    Also love, love, love you Chantal.

    "I just... want to keep touching you."

    "Please... keep touching me."

    "I'm not even trying to love you.

    I just... love you. Do you believe me?"

    Some of the most major &

    essential media of our era;

    ("do you think this can't be lost?")

    a full-on revelatory re-watch,

    and I'd already quite loved it.

    "But the thing is, you never

    know if what you've lost is...

    better than what you've gained."

    "I never read Proust. I probably never will."

    i was fine until eli pointed out that it was really sad that it was anton saying that line and then i became well and truly broken.

    Seeking another person no matter what might happen the following day. Sharp editing and two very committed lead performances (Yelchin body language is wonderful throughout). Despite being a two handler it has a strong feel to Portuguese nightlife and uses Porto’s topography around Douro river very well. And Porto is such a perceptive film.

    ""I'm not even trying to love you. I just... love you. Do you believe me?"

    This utterly destroyed me. I am beyond words. I miss you Anton, we all do.
