Julie Delpy Makes Sneezing Romantic

Last night I was watching 2 Days in Paris. Julie Delpy (whom I adore) wrote, directed and starred in this movie and while it was funny and quirky, it wasn’t all that good. Until…the last scene, when she said this:

“It always fascinated me how people go from loving you madly to nothing at all, nothing. It hurts so much. When I feel someone is going to leave me, I have a tendency to break up first before I get to hear the whole thing. Here it is. One more, one less. Another wasted love story. I really love this one. When I think that its over, that I’ll never see him again like this… well yes, I’ll bump into him, we’ll meet our new boyfriend and girlfriend, act as if we had never been together, then we’ll slowly think of each other less and less until we forget each other completely. Almost. Always the same for me. Break up, break down. Drink up, fool around. Meet one guy, then another, fuck around. Forget the one and only. Then after a few months of total emptiness start again to look for true love, desperately look everywhere and after two years of loneliness meet a new love and swear it is the one, until that one is gone as well. There’s a moment in life where you can’t recover any more from another break-up. And even if this person bugs you sixty percent of the time, well you still can’t live without him. And even if he wakes you up every day by sneezing right in your face, well you love his sneezes more than anyone else’s kisses.”

I mean really…how perfect is that? I got goosebumps.

Look for Julie next in The Countess. (She’s writing, directing and starring in that one too!) The Countess chronicles the life of Elizabeth Bathory, also known as “The Bloody Countess.” Bathory killed over 600 young women and was rumored to have bathed in their blood so that she might acquire their youth and beauty. Sounds like a good flick! The film also stars my favorite German actor, Daniel Bruhl.
