The Aviator's Wife ★★★★★

One of the saddest films. And not just because of the tragic fate of Philippe Marlaud, but also for the film’s nuances on love and chance encounters that lead nowhere and yet reveal everything.


She’s the one
who steers me through dust
and pools, the one who guides me
across the city, who helps me
when I can’t move my eyes

She turns my head and says,
"There is a post office;
there is a public theater ..."
