The English Patient
There are movie lines...
And then, there are "the movie lines"
The English Patient is one of my all time favorite movie. It stars the oh-so-mysterious Ralph Fiennes as Count Almasy (who incidentally is also a real person).
It is based on a novel of the same title by Michael Ondaatje (which is also one of my fave writers).
Michael's writing can be described as "imaginative and whimsical." He likes to write stories about the ravages of war and the interesting people living it.
He also writes about relationships and betrayal.
"Betrayals in war are childlike compared with our betrayals during peace. New lovers are nervous and tender, but smash everything. For the heart is an organ of fire."And of course, love.
This movie has "the movie lines" to die for.
Almasy to Katherine: "Swoon, I'll catch you"
If only this statement can be trusted. If only guys are all like this in real life.
