The acting is absolutely superb; one cannot help but stand in awe with the performance of Carey Mulligan (Kathy), who expresses profound love in such a sublimely understated way, that is only feasible by a British actress. The tears half-shed, the untold disappointments and the feelings which appeared to be requited, but for some reason, and for so long, so unrequited.

Literature that is not the breath of contemporary society, that dares not transmit the pains and fears of that society, that does not warn in time against threatening moral and social dangers—such literature does not deserve the name of literature; it is only a façade. Such literature loses the confidence of its own people, and its published works are used as wastepaper instead of being read.

To fall in love is so easy. Why is it so difficult to fall out of love? So many discussions, tears, fights, fears…. I don’t want to hurt the person I’ve been with, because it’s not that there is no feeling. I’m so confused. And the love for you is a different feeling altogether. Can you say something?
Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want to escape from these things.
