I’ve always loved you (The English Patient)
A film comes to my mind when someone mentions maps, marzipan and sand. A film with a great story, love, lust, loyalty, betrayal and a tragic death… The English Patient is one of the most epic films ever made. This is a very weepy movie, indeed, but it is filled with well-acted scenes and artistic touches. Stunning war scenes, Almásy Bosphorus scene, breathtaking desert views, very touching soundtrack, an emotionally scarred young nurse Hana’s sensitiveness, Almásy’s ardent love for Katharine Clifton and ”Szerelem, szerelem”, a traditional Hungarian folk song makes this film unforgettable.
I would like to share quotes from this heartbreaking film.
When Caravaggio who is fascinated by Hana’s hideously scarred patient asked him if he did not kill the Cliftons, Almásy said:
"She died because of me. Because I loved her. Because I had the wrong name."
After Caravaggio said that he could not killed Almásy then, Almásy’s phrases make us close to tears:
"You can’t kill me. I died years ago."
Katharine believed her lover would come and carry her out into the palace of winds. That’s all she wanted: to walk in such a place with him, with friends, an earth without maps.
From this scene:
Katharine: Why did you hate me?
Katharine: Don’t you know you drove everybody mad?
Almásy: Shh, don’t talk.
Katharine: You speak so many bloody languages and you never wanted to talk.
Almásy: You’re wearing the thimble.
Katharine: Of course, you idiot. I always wear it; I’ve always worn it… I’ve always loved you.
the sea fixes everything…
