the legend of 1900

I can talk about this film forever. Or I can not. It is hard to put in words all the emotions this film gives you. This story of a person who is born, lives and dies on a boat; who loves and feels everything around him through music; touches deep down in your heart.

First before watching the movie itself, I saw an extract from it: 'Playing love', where 1900 plays his feelings to a young unknown lady he sees through the window. I was in love with this scene, but then I fell in love with the whole movie. Tornatore is amazing, he can make you feel all sort of things throughout the film. He shows the scenes the way that you want to cry or laugh, or both at the same time. And you want to hear and hear all the music over and over again.

This story is unbelievable, fiction, but you feel that you are there and you feel sorry for 1900. And you feel you want him to live longer, to live through the happiness and sadness of life. You want him to see more than just a boat, to have more things to feel through his music. And how bad you want to help him!

I know it's just a movie, but the depth and way it touches you, is simply great.
