From the opening score that crooned.. “Dreams are nothing but the wishes and a wish is just a dream.. wished to come true… ” to the final scene where Brinkley tugs on Tom’s blazer, the movie was adorable in every sense!
The playful zest of Meg Ryan, the funny and witty Tom Hanks.. wonderful script and a taut editing that never leaves the storyline hanging at any point! Ah! It’s a movie to relish. And I did relish it too.. have lost count of how many times I have watched it.
Isn’t internet a fascinating thing?! Billions of people all over the world, connected to eachother, oblivious from one another, yet somehow affecting our lives in some minute way…. responding to our feelings and emotions, identifying themselves in us, somehow everyone becomes so close when we realize this! The thing that fascinates me the most is the mystery that surrounds this whole business of internet communication ala email, chat, etc. The persons we meet, converse, mail, seem to become a part of us without either one of us ever meeting eachother in person! Is it good or is it not?! I don’t wanna answer that question, and it isn’t my purpose here too! All I wanna do is.. share the excitement one feels when someone emails us… a someone… who we feel isn’t someone!
“I’ll say goodbye
to all my sorrows and tomorrow
I’ll be on my way…
I guess the Lord Must be in New York City….. “
