Am revazut filmul "American Beauty" si mi-am reamintit de ce mi-a placut atat de mult. Printre elementele exceptionale se regaseste si monologul de final al personajului lui Kevin Spacey.
I had always heard your entire life flashes in front of your eyes the second before you die.
First of all, that one second isn't a second at all. It stretches on forever, like an ocean of time.
For me, it was lying on my back at Boy Scout camp, watching falling stars. And yellow leaves from the maple trees that lined our street. Or my grandmother's hands and the way her skin seemed like paper. And the first time I saw my cousin Tony's brand-new Firebird. And Janie. And Janie. And Carolyn.
I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me, but it's hard to stay mad when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst.
And then I remember, to relax... and stop trying to hold on to it. And then it flows through me like rain... and I can't feel anything but gratitude... for every single moment of my stupid little life.
You have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm sure. But don't worry.
You will some day.
Alaturi de cuvintele rostite de seful de trib Chingachgook la finalul filmului "The Last of the Mohicans", randurile de mai sus mi-au ramas intiparite in memorie ca o concluzie a filmului si, mai important, ca un sfat de a te bucura de lucrurile frumoase din viata cand si cat ai parte de ele.
