We had this idea because you like looking at the stars and dancing through the cosmos that we’d put on a fireworks display for you at Barafundle. Well, they weigh a tonne so can we just light the fuckers here?
this third star scene is both an emotional & technical achievement, to me…
i was showing some scuba students recently how to do mask removal; i.e. take your mask off underwater and learn to breathe on a regulator whilst having your face and nose exposed… it’s scary because your brain instantly kicks into ‘drowning mode’ as a breathing passage is suddenly flooded with water. not everyone masters it and some experienced divers like me, never ever get over it. it’s hard (you can see the tension in BC’s hands…). plus your eyes need an air pocket to focus, so without that you’re practically blind.
so to be in that stressful state of breathing maskless on a reg, near-blind, having to re-breathe at depth, and still being able to emote as well as they did, is pretty damn outstanding. i think that every time i watch this film.

object in wishing it. Some explanation on his father’s account
he had to give; but his first purpose was to explain
himself, and before they reached Mr. Allen’s grounds he had
done it so well that Catherine did not think it could ever
be repeated too often. She was assured of his affection; and
that heart in return was solicited, which, perhaps, they pretty
equally knew was already entirely his own.
