Since today is valentine, even though I never celebrate valentine (not my custom) but I think it’s a perfect day to share a bit of Cillian Murphy’s love life on screen 😉
I am not going to write long introduction here, just look ate the women (and man) and some of the most romantic quote on his movies (Fortunately….imdb.com has all my favorite quotes, so I don’t have to rewatch all the movies to quote them). You can read my old reviews by clicking the title.
Jonathan: You wanna know the truth? If it’s a matter of life and death between people like you and me, then I want to outlive you. And I want to see what happens to you. ‘Cause I like ya.
Rachel Row: I don’t know.
Jonathan: What if we are still together in a year?
Rachel Row: Would we be?
Jonathan: I can see it happening.
Rachel Row: I don’t know. So do you think you love me?
Jonathan: I know I love you.
Both Jonathan (Cillian) and Rachel (Tricia Vessey) are patients in a mental institution. Jonathan has difficulty to try winning Rachel’s heart.
When Harry Becomes Tree (Review coming soon)
I can’t give any quote as there isn’t any sweet talk. Gus (Cillian) was a really shy man. Eileen and Gus loved each other but it wasn’t easy for Gus to express his feeling.
Runt: What’s the color of love, Pig?
Pig: What sort of love, love?
Runt: Don’t know. But you know the way things, they got a color. I wonder what the color of love is.
Pig: Jesus, Runt. You could read a thousand thick books and never know the answer to that quiz.
Runt: It’s be a good one to know, ah?
Pig: It’d be brilliant, Runt. It’s around here somewhere.
I have to watch this movie again…it’s quite dark. Runt (Elaine Cassidy) and Pig (Cillian) were born on the same time and they were inseparable till things got too much for Runt.
28 Days Later
I don’t remember any sweet talk between Selena (Naomie Harris) and Jim (Cillian) but whoever had seen the movie knew well how they eventually fell in love.
John: This is a list of things that I want, and have wanted, for a long time. Straight from the heart – no fucking around: to be with you; to live with you; and to eventually, you know, to marry you; to have your child… or…
Deirdre: …for me to have yours…
John: …yes, all my children – however many – three, four…
Deirdre: Go on.
John: …to grow old with you; to know – and that’s the main thing – to know, all right? that you feel the same. That’s it.
When i first watched the movie…I was so touched with that quote. John (Cillian) really loved Deirdre (Kelly MacDonald) but something made them break up. John wanted to win her heart again.
Hmmm…not sure if there’s a romantic words there. Cillian only appeared with Scar-Jo for 7 minutes.
My most favorite Cillian’s Movie 🙂
Bertie: You know, Kitten, I made a decision a long time ago.
Kitten: What decision was that?
Bertie: That I wasn’t destined for sentimental side of things. But if I ever did let myself fall for someone, I think it would be a girl like you.
Kitten: Bertie, please, I have to stop you. There’s something you should know.
Bertie: Or maybe what I should say is, it would be a girl not a million miles away from where I’m standing. What’s the matter, Princess?
Kitten: Well, you see, the thing is, Bertie, I’m not a girl.
Bertie: Oh, I knew that, Princess.
Bertie: Of course. What I said was, it would be a girl like you
There were two men in Kitten’s life but I think his relationship with Bertie the magician (Stephen Rea) is the sweetest one.
At first, I want to share all of them in one post…but it makes the post TOO long, I don’t like reading long post…so I guess many also feel the same as I am…and that’s why I do two parts for this special post 😉
