    “I want to neglect the remainder of my life with you.” It really warms the heart, no? Wasn’t that a line from Leaving Las Vegas?

    I tried it using my own words regarding the film:

    “It is attractive, as the represented dialogue becomes so strange.”

    My comment is now much more interesting, which is sad.

    “This one must be a single challenge, to learn the manuscript by the heart and to be used the suitable curve.”

    (It must have been a unique challenge, to memorize the script and use proper inflection.)
