Music From Another Room

There's this not very well known movie called "Music From Another Room" and it's one of my absolute all time favorite movies. (I guess it doesn't hurt that Jude Law is in it)

Anyway, it's a sweet, somewhat cheesy movie about love and fate and all those great mushy things that are so nice to watch movies about on cold rainy days...we won't mention that I watched it tonight by myself...

There's this line in the movie that I love. It explains the title of the movie. Danny (Jude Law) is sitting at the dinner table with the Swan family. Anna Swan, the girl he's in love with, is sitting across the table from Danny beside her new fiance and her sister Nina (who's blind) is beside Danny at the table and Nina asks Danny what love is like. Danny replies with this wistful voice

"You know how when you're listening to music playing from another room? And you're singing along because it's a tune that you really love? When a door closes or a train passes so you can't hear the music anymore, but you sing along anyway... then, no matter how much time passes, when you hear the music again you're still in exact same time with it. That's what it's like."


Makes my heart melt every time. (Not to mention my most favorite song of all time, which later became "our" song is in it twice...totally came upon that by accident and I was thrilled the first time I saw the movie. Made the movie a sure favorite in my books!)
