Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Giulia : If you want... want to... 
Marcello : If I want to...? 
Giulia : Yes, right here... on the floor... 
on the carpet... Want to? 
Marcello : Better think about the priest. 
He may not grant absolution. 
Giulia : They grant everyone absolution.

This is just one of the most gorgeously shot scenes in one of the most gorgeously shot films ever made, is all. The light moving through those blinds against the colors of her dress, everything about it, it makes my eyeballs sing. Watch:
God I adore this movie. Top Ten of Ever, for sure. A happy 87th birthday to the legend Jean-Louis Trintignant today - I'm supposed to see the new Michael Haneke film Happy End tomorrow night if all goes according to plan, which reunites Haneke with his Amour leading man, so stay tuned for my thoughts on that soon enough!
