His Motorbike, Her Island ★★★★

SPOILERS:

As time goes on, and we attempt to draw on the things and people that have affected us most, dreams and memories become indistinguishable from one another. I was so lost in the romance that I didn’t realize how heartbreaking that final switch to black & white on the island could potentially be. But whether it ended one way or another seems so secondary to the experience of feeling the wind with someone else, or remembering the music and the danger that marked the moment. Such a beautiful film when I sit back and think about it. A new comfort for me.
