Last night i watched the last movie of director So Yong Kim, Lovesong (2016), with Jena Malone and Riley Keough.
By the end of the movie i was so touched in the most heartbreaking, but also, the most beautiful way. I had butterflys feeling how real the movie felt. The young love. The soulmate love. That ‘I will love you forever’ love.
This is a story of falling for your best friend, but more, is a story of two people that love each other so much and should be together, but for some reason the time never felts right.
Sara and Mindy prove the whole history that even not having the time in their favor, their amazing and unique connection ang their genuine romantic intimacy would only grow more and more, same as that kind of electricity that you only have with one person in the entire world and nobody else.
It could have pass 100 years, their feelings would still be there, and it would feel like they never left each other in the first place.
Why this movie felt so real you ask? Because we all have that unfinished love story. A love that it wasn’t fully lived and at the same time, will always be in our lives, not matter what.
It’s is painful and heartbraking, but you know what ? It’s also one of the most romantic things you could ask for. It’s a love of a lifetime.
The fact that they declare their love for each other in the end but still did what they thought was the right thing at that time is so real, that it hurts. Also, it reminds me of something: “If you love someone tell them right then and there. Otherwise the time will pass on and time is a powerful force that can heal, but also can close doors”.
But you know what?
In this case tho, if there was one thing that we could’ve been sure of is that Sara and Mindy ‘s doors will be always open for each other.
