Remembering II

What would I say if she could hear me?

I wacthed Remember Me, starring cutie Robert Pattinson. I was extremely curious to see how he'd fare in a movie playing the role of a normal person, instead of vampire Edward Cullen or wizard Cedric Diggory. In fact, he did it quite well! I was duly impressed (I'm biased though, since I really like the guy). Thing is: when the movie ended, I was crying a freaking Amazon river in there.
While writing this, I worried that maybe I'd be spoiling the film for other people, by talking about my having cried - and I hate spoilers myself, so I'd feel awful. But honestly? The official poster for the movie is in grey, and the depressing background music that plays throughout the entire movie does not mislead anyone for long. Not saying the movie is predictable; I didn't think it was, but you know all the time some big shit is bound to happen. You can feel it in your bones. That didn't stop me from absolutely loving it, mind!
But I digress. Point is: Pattinson's character eventually asks himself what he'd say if a beloved one he'd lost long ago could hear him now. And I, too, wondered. (In all fairness, I gotta say I left the cinema in such a depressed mood, so hence this wondering). I wondered what I'd say to her if she could hear me. 
Well, it's not that she can't hear me: I can talk to her alright. She just won't have any recollection of my doing so 5 minutes later, rendering the whole process kinda pointless. Or not.
Cause according to Ghandi, quoted twice by Pattinson's character: 

Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.

Is it really?

But I know what I'd say: I don't know if I forgive you, but I do wish I could've understood you better. Cause maybe then I would've loved you better.
But then again, what's the use in wondering?
Just watch the movie, it's freaking great.

Sharing that won't make a lasting impression on her, but would saying it make you feel better?

Angel (the vampire) paraphrased Ghandi...he said something along the lines of "When nothing you do matters, the only thing that matters is what you do." Ugh, I watched too much tv and didn't read enough. Sorry!

1994??? They aren't even real people yet! They're babies. We cannot compare ourselves to babies or let them make us think about age. You're an intelligent, accomplished young woman--with special emphasis on "young"!!! =)

Rml said...

@Rick: awwwwww, thank u so very much! It's official: u'r my new best friend!
Hehe, I don't actually think I'm old... but when one of my students said, a couple of days ago, that she didn't even know who or what the Guns n' Roses was, well, I confess I got scared...

RicAdeMus said...

That's good. In that case, I want to move the special emphasis to "intelligent"!!!

Rml said...

Hahahhaha, aren't you a gentleman! =) (Keep going, I'm a Leo, Leos loooooooove flattering, hehe!)
