Can be moviegoers



I went to see a film with my friend this morning. We'd arranged to meet each other in front of the movie theatre, but I inadvertently kept her waiting outside. (Forgive me, Fiona!) I mistakenly got into the building and took some time to find the exit.
By the time the film started, we chatted over cocoa (to her) and coffee (to me). The film "Les Misérables" was exquisite! I tried to hold my tears, but it was all in vain.
Hugh Jackman, who played a leading role, did a great performance!
I read the novel when I was a child and had an image on my own. I was moved because the characters in the movie were just what I'd expected.
After the film, we talked about the story and what not over lunch. She likes movies, and so do I. It'd be more enjoyable for me to watch movies with her. I cannot wait for next time!

If it's possible, I strongly recommend you to watch the movie with a big screen. I know how much you're busy with your lovely daughter, though. I'm looking forward to having your review! ^^

To David

Hello, David! You can call me just "Emi" as the way you call your friend there. ^^
Thank you for your comment! You're always welcome here.

It was when I was eight or nine to read the book "Les Mis" for the first time. The book was written for children, but it was pretty thick like a telephone directory! I was a book lover when I was a child, but I might've given up reading through if the book wasn't an inspiring one. I felt sorry for the main charactor Jean Valjean and also felt happy for the poor orphan girl.
Unfortunately, I haven't seen the play. It must be moving! I'm sure the movie never disappoint you two. I heard the sound of sobbing during the showtine.
Come to think of our lives, encounter is miracle. If Jean Valjean didn't meet the bishop at the right time, his life would have been full of misery and agony. He didnt live comfortably as he hoped, but that's why, in a way, his life tells us a story.

> "By the witness of the martyrs
> By the Passion and the Blood
> God has raised you out of darkness
> I have saved your soul for God!"

What a song...
I wish I could have a better command of English and perfectly understand its profpund meaning... Well, David, give me some time. Until the time we meet again, I'll keep uo my English study to share our opinions about "Les Mis"!!

夫婦でコメント、大歓迎!
Ryokoさん、ありがとうございます!
「レ・ミゼラブル」を愛する熱~~~~い気持ちが、海を渡って届きましたよ!!
私も子どもの頃に読んだ「ああ、無情」は、今も挿絵から表紙から鮮やかに思い出します。
コゼットと逃げる途中、追われに追われて、袋小路の壁を登っていくシーンなど、
どきどきしながら読みました。
このシーンも、映画で見事に再現されていました。
とても原作に忠実な映画です。読書では味わえない感動を味わいました。

> "Take my hand. I'll lead you to salvation.
> Take my love for love is everlasting.
> And remember the truth that once was spoken,
> To love another person is to see the face of God."

いやん、Ryokoさん、映画を観る前に聞いておきたかった~~~~。
今となっては思い出せず、、、
映画は1回見ただけではなかなか覚えていられないです。
また観に行こうかな、、、、

My favorite lines!

Emiさん、こんにちは!!夫婦でコメントしちゃってます!
ディビッドのコメント見て私のfavorite linesをshareしたくなってコメント書いてます。沢山好きな箇所はあるのですが、その中でも一番好きなうちの1つはフィナーレの歌の中で。。。

"Take my hand. I'll lead you to salvation.
Take my love for love is everlasting.
And remember the truth that once was spoken,
To love another person is to see the face of God."

私自身、人を愛していく中で真実の愛というものがいかなるものかってのを考えさせられ学ばされてます。人を愛そうと模索しながら、神様の無条件の愛の深さを少しずつですが心全体でもっともっと学ばされている気がします。

うまく書けませんが、ディビッドのコメントを読んで自分も少し好きなパートを書きたくなったので書きました。失礼しました〜!!

Hi Emi san,

I love Les Mis too! It's my favorite play. I have not watched the movie yet but Ryoko and I plan to once we get a chance. I have watched the musical live and the 10th anniversary all-star cast of the musical and found it to be amazing.

The music and singing is amazing but what really astonishes me is the story. As a Christian, it's really exciting to see how the gospel (the promise of grace and redemption promised by Jesus) is illustrated in the characters and their story's. I love seeing how Jean Valjean is just transformed when he is shown grace by the bishop and the bishop sings,

"By the witness of the martyrs
By the Passion and the Blood
God has raised you out of darkness
I have saved your soul for God!"

...and from there Jean Valjeans whole life is changed to love people as Jesus has called his followers to. In a few weeks our church is actually going to have a presentation from our pastor with a more detailed look at how the gospel is communicated through Les Mis. Ryoko and I are totally looking forward to it.

David
