여전히 알 수 없습니다. 낯선이에게서 눈을 떼지 못하게 되고, 그렇게 꿈처럼 파고들게 되는것인지, 진실을 갈구하며 서로를 욕망하며 순수로의 집착의 다름 이름에 불과한것인지. 사랑이요...
조금씩 가까워지는, 그리고 일순간에 멀어져버리는 사랑. 그 지근거리에서 버둥거리는 생생한 갈망. 어쩌면 모두에게 거짓말과도 같은 것. 모니터 너머에서 묻고 있는것만 같습니다. ru4real? 보이지도 만질수도 느낄수도 없는, 타협을 치장하는 다른이름.
한가지 여전히 공명하는 구절은 사랑은 순간의 빠져버림이 아니라 순간의 선택이라는 얘기.
How...? How does it work? How can you do this to someone?... 'I fell in love' - as if you had no choice. There's a moment, there's always a moment; I can do this, I can give in to this or I can resist it... You didn't fall in love, you gave into temptation.
- Alice, Closer
Anna I fell in love with him, Alice.
Alice That's the most stupid expression in the world. 'I fell in love' - as if you had no choice. There's a moment, there's always a moment; I can do this, I can give in to this or I can resist it. I don't know when your moment was but I bet there was one.
Anna Yes, there was.
Alice You didn't fall in love, you gave in to temptation.
Anna Well, you fell in love with him.
Alice No, I chose him. I looked in his briefcase and I found this....sandwich...and I thought,'I will give all my love to this charming man who cuts off his crusts.' I didn't fall in love, I chose to.
Anna You still want him, after everything he's done to you?
Alice You wouldn't understand; he...buries me. He makes me invisible.
Anna(curious) What are you hiding from?
Alice(softly) Everything. Everything's a lie, nothing matters.
-Patrick Marber, Closer
