I already knew from the start (when I agreed to watch this film, I had no idea who the stars were) who he will end up with when Clare showed up at the library. So I wasn't keen on those little details anymore. Perhaps I was just waiting for a striking scene halfway of the film... just to stimulate me. :D
Being a time traveler's wife is a sad sad thing. I couldn't imagine myself having someone who'd just slip in and out of my life without warning.. And wait in vain. How could you love somebody like that? True love, I guess. :) But the blessing for having time traveler as a husband is that you can still get to see him once in a while even when he already passed away.
I will end this entry by quoting a few favorite lines from the book:
Long ago, men went to sea, and women waited for them, standing on the edge of the water, scanning the horizon for the tiny ship. Now I wait for Henry. He vanishes unwillingly, without warning. I wait for him. Each moment that I wait feels like a year, an eternity. Each moment is as slow and transparent as glass. Through each moment I can see infinite moments lined up, waiting. Why has he gone where I cannot follow? - Clare
I go to sleep alone, and wake up alone. I take walks, I work until I'm tired. I watch the wind play with the trash that's been under the snow all winter. Everything seems simple until you think about it. Why is love intensified by absence? - Clare
