beauty is all around you....never forget it


American Beauty is one of the movies that change your life, make you think about it and realize that no matter what, there´s still beauty everywhere around you.


This scene captures the main idea perfectly.


you can watch the whole scene here

"It was one of those days when it's a minute away from snowing and there's this electricity in the air, you can almost hear it. And this bag was, like, dancing with me. Like a little kid begging me to play with it. For fifteen minutes. And that's the day I knew there was this entire life behind things, and... this incredibly benevolent force, that wanted me to know there was no reason to be afraid, ever. Video's a poor excuse, I know. But it helps me remember... and I need to remember... Sometimes there's so much beauty in the world I feel like I can't take it, like my heart's going to cave in."
Ricky Fitts in American Beauty

Yes, I liked that film a lot, and that text is pretty much incredible.

And I loved the pictures from the 1951 fashion show....there is a sort of glamour I love about that time.

Americká krása je fakt vynikající film (filmy jsou vedle módy moje další posedlost) a tahle scéna je jedna z nejlepších, mrzí mě, že jsem zatím neviděla Mendesův poslední film Revolutionary Road.
