Perfect Sense

Without Love There Is Nothing


It’s the second time when Anathema (the band) drives me to another memorable movie. The music has the same moderate tunes, and these dramas are somehow alike.

The first Anathema song, Thin Air, made me look for the movie used for the clip. I’ve reached the Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I didn’t wrote a post back then, yet more than a year later I’ve made a reference to it in the Ice Skating post. Since there was not a strong connection between those two movies, a certain image, a frame from This Is Where I Leave You was the one who sent me to the Eternal Sunshine…, make me think that the Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is quite a movie.

Tonight, Anathema revealed the Perfect Sense to me through part two of The Lost Song. Besides the music that somehow (“accidentally”) bonds these two movies, the Perfect Sense made me thing again about, and go back to the Eternal Sunshine…

I’m talking nonsense… about the Perfect Sense…

This blog does not provide synopses, so this post will be not an exception. This blog is rather about synapses. It is about the spark that triggers a certain curiosity on a certain movie, and the connections between that igniting spark and the published post.

The Dark Valley

Freedom is not a gift that not everyone likes to receive.


The original music is composed and produced by Matthias Weber, and interpreted by Macedonian Radio Symphony Orchestra, Skopje, conducted by Oleg Kondratenko.

One of the songs that have drawn my attention are How Dare You, performed by Steaming Satellites, and Sinnerman by One Two Three Cheers And A Tiger featuring Lana Sharp.

Coming back to The Dark Valley, directed by Andreas Prochaska, and starring Sam Riley and Paula Beer… The very first line from this post is some sort of conclusion of this alpine drama.

All Good Things

I’ve never been closer to anyone, and I don’t know you at all.

All Good Things isn’t quite well rated (6.3/10 on IMDB), especially by (between 32 and 39%), only watching it isn’t a complete waste of time, especially because both Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst are acting very well.

Love Story and Crime are the words that best describe this drama. Simple, yet powerful.

A Man Who Was Superman

Strength doesn’t open iron doors, but a small key.

You are not weak.

Everyone has the power to help others.

Help them until they realize.

No matter what you do, the world won’t change.

A man who spent many difficult years alone has now returned to our side.

We wish him all the best.

 The past can’t be changed, but the future’s different: it can be changed.

Don’t lose courage. The future’s in your hands.

Strength doesn’t open iron doors, but a small key.

We all have the key inside us to open the door to a new future.

The Korean movie “A Man Who Was Superman” starts like a comedy and ends like a drama. All the above quotes belong (you already guessed) to this movie.

Director: Yoon-Chul Chung

Inside Llewyn Davis

For some musicians that perform or play folk music, a daily life seems to look like this week experienced by Llewyn Davis back in 1961, a week depicted in Ethan and Joel Coen‘s “Inside Llewyn Davis“.

A fantastic true-life drama (as written on a poster towards the end of the movie)
