Before Sunset šŸŽ¬

Before Sunset is my new recent favorite movie. I don't really watch romance movies so this one surprised me very pleasantly. The movie is basically 80 minutes of just great dialogue. Here are some of my favorite parts.

ā€œI think Iā€™m always so much more happy with books and movies and stuff. I think I get more excited about well-done representations of life than life itself.ā€

ā€œI guess when you are young, you believe that you will meet many people with whom you'll connect with, but later in life you realize it only happens a few times.ā€

ā€œI remember as a teenager I went to Warsar when it was still a strict communist regime, which I don't approve of at all. But anyway, something about being there was very interesting I found. After a couple of weeks, something changed in me. The city was quite gloomy and gray and... But after a while, my brain seemed clearer. I was writing a lot more in my journal, ideas I'd never thought of before. It took me a while to figure out why I felt, you know, so different. And then one day, as I was walking through the Jewish cemetery, I don't know why but it occurred to me there, I realized that I had spent the last two weeks away from most of my habits. TV was in a language I didn't understand. There was nothing to buy. No advertisements anywhere. So all I'd been doing was walk around, think and write. My brain felt like it was at rest, free from the "consuming" frenzy. And I have to say it was almost like a natural high. I felt so peaceful inside. No strange urge to be somewhere else, to shop. Maybe it could have seemed like boredom at first but it quickly became very very soulful.ā€
