Ontem disseram-me na brincadeira que tinha um fraquinho pelo Brad Pitt. Ora bem, entendamo-nos, pelos filmes dele. De facto há dois filmes que ele protagoniza que me agradam especialmente. Dois filmes onde está bem descrito o que deve ser paixão, amor, devoção. No primeiro ele é uma lenda, "a rocha contra qual tudo rebenta". Chama-se Lendas de Paixão e o seu papel de Tristan ficou para a história. A sua primeira dupla com Anthony Hopkins.



O segundo, já falei aqui dele, é o "Meet Joe Black". Nesta cena que mostro ele descreve aquilo que um homem deve ser: apaixonado, dedicado, delicado... Peço desculpa ser em inglês, mas tinha que deixar aqui o diálogo.



YOUNG MAN
Good morning, I was talking kind of loud there, sorry.

SUSAN
Not at all. It was fascinating.

YOUNG MAN
Oh yeah? What was 'fascinating'about it?

SUSAN
You and 'Honey'?

YOUNG MAN
My kid sister. She just broke up with her boyfriend and she's thinking about dropping out of law school.

SUSAN
I'm sorry --

YOUNG MAN
Nothing to be sorry about. That's the way with men and women, isn't it?

SUSAN
What's the way?

YOUNG MAN
Nothing lasts.

SUSAN
I agree --

YOUNG MAN
Why?

SUSAN
I was just being agreeable, now I've got to explain why?

YOUNG MAN
I'm not trying to sharpshoot you, but that 'nothing lasts' stuff, that's what was the trouble with Honey's guy. He was fooling around and Honey caught him at it. One girlfriend wasn't enough for him.

SUSAN
So you're a one-girl guy?

YOUNG MAN
Damn right. Looking for her right now. Who knows? You might be her.

YOUNG MAN (cont'd)
Well, don't laugh. I just arrived in town, got a new job -- I'm trying to get into this apartment. You a doctor?

SUSAN
How'd you know?

YOUNG MAN
Everybody's a doctor around here. This apartment house is all green pajamas and slippers. The guy I'm waiting for to vacate is a doctor. What kind of doctor?

SUSAN
Me? Internal medicine.

YOUNG MAN
So if I needed a doctor, you could be it?

SUSAN
I could be her.

YOUNG MAN
'Her'

SUSAN
Yes, I could. I have an office in the hospital.

YOUNG MAN
-- This is my lucky day. I arrive in this big bad city and I not only find a doctor, a beautiful woman as well.

YOUNG MAN (cont'd)
I'm sorry, you mind my saying that?

SUSAN
Not at all.

YOUNG MAN
How 'bout another cup of coffee?

SUSAN
I've got patients coming in

YOUNG MAN
And I want to get into my apartment and go to work. Please, what do you say, another cup of coffee?

YOUNG MAN (cont'd)
I see you use lots of sugar and cream. Me, too...

YOUNG MAN
...It's kind of a pro bono job.

SUSAN
'Pro bono'. That means doing good-- Going to be doing good all your life?

YOUNG MAN
I know what you're saying. Doesn't pay very well. Depends on the woman I marry. Maybe she'd like a bigger house, a better car, lotsa kids, college doesn't come cheap --

SUSAN
You'd give up what you want for the woman you marry?

YOUNG MAN
I would.

YOUNG MAN (cont'd)
If I married you, I'd want to give you what you wanted, I know it's old fashioned and all that, but what's wrong with taking care of a woman? She takes care of you.

SUSAN
You'll have a hard time finding a woman like that these days --

YOUNG MAN
You never know. Lightning could strike.


SUSAN
I've got to go

YOUNG MAN
Did I say something wrong?

SUSAN
No, it was so right it scares me.

YOUNG MAN
I've been thinking... I don't want you to be my doctor. Because I don't want you to examine me.

SUSAN
Why?

YOUNG MAN
Because I like you so much.You have coffee here every morning,
don't you? If I came by, could you give me the name of a doctor?

SUSAN
Sure, I'll give you the name of a doctor....And I don't want to examine you.

YOUNG MAN
Why not?

SUSAN
Because I like you so much. Now I've got to go.



Já agora está aqui uma bela definição de amor nas palavras de Anthony Hopkins...



William Parrish: Love is passion, obsession, someone you can't live without. If you don't start with that, what are you going to end up with? Fall head over heels. I say find someone you can love like crazy and who'll love you the same way back. And how do you find him? Forget your head and listen to your heart. I'm not hearing any heart. Run the risk, if you get hurt, you'll come back. Because, the truth is there is no sense living your life without this. To make the journey and not fall deeply in love - well, you haven't lived a life at all. You have to try. Because if you haven't tried, you haven't lived.
