Garden Monologue – Tarkovsky – The Sacrifice

The following is one of the most moving monologues I have ever heard in a film. It is from Tarkovsky’s last film “The Sacrifice.” The character sits talking to a young girl on the eve of nuclear holocaust and laments the nature of man. Reading it does not have the same effect as watching it, but I cannot find it in clip form anywhere on the net so this will have to do.

And for the other people on the net looking for this thing… You are welcome =)

Years ago
Before I was married
I often went to visit my mother in the country.
She was still alive in those days.
Her house, a little cottage,
Was surrounded by a garden
A little garden
Dreadfully neglected and overgrown
No one had tended it for many years
And I don’t think
Anyone had ever been in it.
Even then my mother was very ill
She almost never left the house
Still… Amidst the ruin of the garden
There was something that was, in its way, beautiful.

Yes,
Now I know what it was.

When the weather was fine…
She often sat at the window…
Looking out at the garden
She even had a special chair by the window.
Once, though, I decided that I would tidy things up
In the garden that is.
I wanted to mow the grass
Burn the weeds, prune the trees
On the whole,
I wanted to redo the garden in my own taste
With my own hands
Yes, simply to please my mother.
And for two solid weeks
I went at it with shears and a scythe.
I dug and cut
And sawed
And weeded…
I kept my nose to the ground literally
And I took great pains to get it ready
As soon as possible.
My mothers condition grew worse
And she kept to her bed.
But I wanted her to be able…
To sit by the window
And see her new garden.
In short, when I was finished
And everything was ready
I took a bath
Put on fresh underwear,
A new jacket, even a tie.
Then I sat down in the chair
To see what I had made,
Through her eyes as it were,

I…

I sat there…

And looked out the window.
I had prepared myself to enjoy the sight…
Anyway, I looked out the window and saw…

What did I see?

Where had all the beauty gone?
The naturalness of it?
It was so disgusting
All that evidence of violence!

I remember once
When my sister was young.
She went to a barber and had her hair cut.
It was the fashion then.
Her hair was unbelievably lovely,
Golden yellow like Lady Godiva’s.
She came home pleased as punch.

Then my father saw her.

He began to cry.
I think it was the same with the garden.

To The Wonder

You shall love whether you like it or not. Emotions, they come and go like clouds. Love is not only a feeling; you show love. To love is to run the risk of failure, the risk of betrayal. You fear your love has died; perhaps it is waiting to be transformed into something higher. Awaken the divine presence which sleeps in each man, each woman. Know each other in that love that never changes.

Terrence Malick is quite possibly one of the greatest film makers in the history of the medium. His films are pure philosophical poetry.

To say I am excited to see this film would be an understatement

Beautiful Hymns From “The Thin Red Line”

Melanesian Choirs expressing their love for Jesus.

Jisas Yu Holem Hand Blong Mi

Jesus is watching over me;
Wherever I may go he is right beside me;
Jesus is watching over me;
No matter what I do his love will never cease;
My saviour and my keeper beside me;
All the blessings he has provided me;
He is there to comfort and guide me;
And his love will never cease.

God Yu Tekkem Laef Blong Mi

From the hymn ‘ Take My Life and Let It Be’ by Frances R. Havergal, (1874):

Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee;
Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love.
Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee;
Take my voice and let me sing,
Always, only for my King.
Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee;
Take my silver and my gold,
Not a mite would I withhold.
Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in endless praise;
Take my intellect and use
Every powr as Thou shalt choose.
Take my will and make it Thine,
It shall be no longer mine;
Take my heart, it is Thine own,
It shall be Thy royal throne.
Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store;
Take myself and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee.

Music That Moves You #3

Only recently did I discover the magic and beauty that is the world of movie scores. Some of this music has the potential to move you to tears. I never thought a piece of music could ever do that to me, (I had heard people talk about music doing that to them, but to be honest I thought they were full of crap.) but his music stirs me deeply. So in the spirit of passing it on to others, I thought I would transfer the beauty on to yall. I guess I should thank Hans Zimmer, because to be honest I am strictly speaking of his work.

LISTEN TO IT LOUD!

Time – Hans Zimmer (Inception)

Journey to the Line Hans Zimmer (The Thin Red Line)

This piece of music moves me on a spiritual level particularly near the beginning with the build up to the climax of the song, the rest is beautiful, but that initial build up is most moving for me. I picture lovers, I picture the epic struggle of war, I sense sorrow, and loss, but also a sense of redemption. Part of it probably from the movie itself, but much of it in my own life too. I picture scenes from Passion of the Christ as well.
