Les Mis

So I've literally just got back from Les Mis and I did not acquit myself well, first of all I tried to stop myself from crying by holding my breath (I know this doesn't work really) so eventually I had to admit defeat and gasp for breath as well as crying, then I thought popcorn might distract me from the barricades and nearly choked again - in the end I decided to surrender to the tears and kept reminding myself that at least they were all fictional unlike some other dear ones in earlier revolutions

I haven't seen it yet but I'm clinging to this. It may hurt terribly, terribly, but nothing can match (except for real people I know dying) what happened in '94. I'm sure when I do see it this reasoning will go for naught and I'll be in floods of tears too, though.

I think it is genuinely quite a powerful film - but I was distraught because for me there is an elision between Hugo's amis and ours. I suppose that is what he intended. Lovely to hear from you, but sad that things are not good x

Ahh I cried. No shame, everyone did, right? Although, actually, hardly any tears the -second- time I watched it. Maybe it was just the time of day, or that I was trying really hard to notice everything and take everything in and focussing in on the detail.. But I've found I'm much more emotional about it since leaving the cinema!
