This is an overdue post…I should have done this on Valentine’s day (no I never celebrate Valentine if any of you wondering, it’s not my custom) but just in the spirit of that day, I share part one of this post last year > here. On that part 1 I shared the women (and a man) characters that has romantic scene with Cillian’s characters. Cillian had played in so many movies and almost all the movies (not all but mostly) he has a lover. Part 1 shared 7 of them and this part 2 will also share another 6.
…and you can check my review of the movie by clicking on the title 😉
There’s hardly romantic quote in this movie but Damien (Cillian Murphy) wrote a beautiful letter to Sinead (Orla Fitzgerald):
I tried not to get into this war. And did. And now try to get out and can’t, strange creatures we are in ourselves. I treasure every bits of you body and soul, in these last few moments. You once said you wanted your children to taste freedom.But I fear it will be longer than either of us have imagined.
a movie buff, Neil (Cillian Murphy) met a very unusual woman named Violet (Lucy Liu). This is Cillian’s only romantic comedy…so far. I would love to see him in a romantic comedy again once day…not too many just another one or two.
Neil: What are doing to me, Violet? Why are you doing this? Why are you like this?
Violet: Because I really like you
Neil: Ah give me a break!
Violet: No, I am crazy about you
Neil:I believe the first half of that
Violet: I am just trying to protect myself.
Neil: It doesn’t make any sense.
Violet: It doesn’t? Let me guess, you’ve never been in a relationship longer than a year, right?
Oh…this is my favorite scene in the movie, the first time I saw it I laughed so loud.
The Edge of Love
One of my least favorite movies by Cillian. Captain William Killick (Cillian Murphy) fell in love with Vera (Keira Knightley) who was involved in a triangle love with his childhood friend.
William Killick: No harm will ever come to you. Not from me, not from anyone else. And while I’m here, no word of mine will ever hurt you.
Vera Phillips: Sounds like a vow.
There’s hardly romance here, Michael McCrea (Cillian Murphy) and Brenda (Jodie Whittaker) are best friends. Michael told her he loves her almost at the end of the movie.
Martin (Cillian) and Kate (Thandie Newton) are a marriage couple who are trying to fix their marriage in an island. Things don’t go well for them.
Tom Buckley (Cillian) is a professor and Sally Owen (Elizabeth Olsen) is one of the college student…they have quite an age gape. Since it’s not a romance movie, it doesn’t have any romantic conversation to quote.
Let’s wait another year to see who else plays as Cillian’s lover 😉 … lucky ladies!
