Love on the Metro

It starts as it always does on the subway in France. The speech has the same formulaic windup. And you think you know what’s coming next — the pitch for some spare change. But then things head in a new direction, and a mini drama unfolds. I won’t spoil the rest. J’Attendrai Le Suivant (I’ll Wait for the Next One) was nominated for an Academy Award for the Best Short Film in 2002. It received multiple other nominations and prizes. This comes our way via Daniel, a film student in Berlin. I’ve added it to our collection of Free Online Movies and our YouTube Favorites.

    “Excuse me sir, but can I have a moment of your time? I’m not asking for money.” Famous first words. But when a person is somewhat social, and then invests time and energy into a conversation, finds interest and humanity in his/her temporary companion, even once it is recognized as a ruse, one will sometimes acquiesce in order to end the conversation and get the hell away. But it’s still humiliating to have been suckered by our own desire to believe romance exists.
