“It had never occurred to me that our lives, so closely interwoven, could unravel with such speed. If I’d known, maybe I’d have kept tighter hold of them”
“I tell myself, if that were true, and I waited long enough then a tiny figure would appear on the horizon across the field and gradually get larger until I’d see it was Tommy. He’d wave. And maybe call. I don’t know if the fantasy go beyond that, I can’t let it. I remind myself I was lucky to have had any time with him at all.”
“He screams, and there’s nothing. No one rescues him. He gets held very tightly by someone he loves, and I think that’s what Ishiguro is trying to say: We have very short time here, and love as much as you can, and love as many people as you can. Hold on to the people who mean something. I think that’s a microcosm of what he’s talking about. It’s very simplistic. People say it’s much deeper or richer than that, but if you wanted to sum it up, you could probably sum it up in that way.” - Andrew Garfield

Watched this short film last night. It’s quite beautiful.
