The Bridges of Madison County (1995)

The Bridges of Madison County , Clint Estwood
Story of love that happens just once in a lifetime -- if you're lucky.

Marvelous , fantastic movie , whole night movie was being played in my sub conscious mind , in dreams ,  like a flash back.Based on  my fav subject , “ Rishtey” .
2 Most talented actors ever, Old cow boy still looks so handsome , any women can feel weakness in her knees , his dresses , jeans , thick cotton shirts , Ahh fantastic. He still carry his cow boy style ,watch him how he uses his lighter , although he changed his signature smoking style of a rowdy (GBU)  to a sober professional National Geographic Photgrapher.
Nostalgic  reminiscences  ,picturestic  country side , river, big wooden farm house  , an ideal vacation home one can dream of , which I am searching for, somewhere near Bombay ( Nashik/Panvel).
Meryl Steep in her 50’s , her  anxiety like a 16 yr old girl just  to have  a glimpse of him , her excitement while putting message (post it) on the Rosamunde bridge. Living her whole life in span of just 4 days & ruminate for whole life ,thinking how beautiful those 4 days were ,which infact  caused pain only, for rest of her life ,how sad! , which she also expressed in her letter something like' I  thought about him almost everyday throughout my life'.
Movie has everything like Cast,Performances, Family ,Romance , Nostalgia , Relations , Responsibilities ,Thoughtful conversations , Travel , Alcohol ,Life , Kids , National Geographic …
Last time ,I had this feeling , when I watched “Meet Joe Black” in Malaysia , Tamil director Cheran  “ Autograph” was also likeable and one can cherish for many years or may ruminate.
My Fav scene “ when Francesca holding car door handle & in dilemma of staying with the family Or to  go with him.”
Thanks !!

This big  dog has attended every major demonstration in Athens, Greece for the past two three years, reports The Guardian newspaper. In fact, he showed up most recently during the current anti-austerity protests.

According to The Sun, photographers became aware of the dog as they kept noticing him in their photographs of masked activists and police.
