the wings of the dove.

I don’t know why I had waited so long to see this film, and now I see how I had judged it wrong, imagining it to be a sort of romantic threesome in Italy. It’s simply a period love tale, predictable – though at the same time revealing unexpected results. Seeing it with modern eyes, it might seem slightly moralistic, but that’s what has made it so heartbreaking. And isn’t Helena Bonham Carter wonderful? It’s shivering to see her character’s transformation, from an apparently naive girl willing to give up a life of wealth for love, to a sagacious, even cold woman who desires everything.

Anthony, bullied at school
Get your own back now you are cool
Or are you scared bunking off though you’re a toff?
It’s all gone wrong again, you’ve got Double Maths. 

But the teacher’s got no control
The boys all run riot
“You will stay quiet or you will die.”

Tony, at the back of the gym
Smoke another one, your chances are slim,
‘Cause here they come again
And they got you on the ground.
Tasting blood again;
At least it’s your own.

“It was to be two and a half weeks of travelling before the Dauphine was officially handed over to France. Marie Antoinette would in effect cross the whole of central Europe in her passage from Vienna to Versailles. She spent a great deal of this time cooped up in her velvet-and-gold carriage; sometimes the day’s journey would last over nine hours. Essentially she was a royal package, sealed with the double-headed eagle of the Habsburgs and the fleur-de-lys of the Bourbons.”  (Antonia Fraser, Marie Antoinette)

Mélanie Laurent is a basterd.

When we first see her, she’s a teenage girl hiding like a rat, trying not to breath while listening to a nervous conversation. She then escapes leaving her murdered family behind, face and body covered by mud and tears. Four years later she has a new name and owns a movie theater, pretty much dressed as a boy, but so effortless sexy, she goes on with her life. One single night she leaves the newsboy cap for a birdcage hat, only the cigarette remains, inseparable, as the memories she carried within herself during these years, waiting for one day, for the perfect moment, waiting for vengeance.
