    "Nulla è più strano, nulla è più scabroso, del rapporto tra persone che si conoscono solo con gli occhi - che ogni giorno e ogni ora s’incontrano, si osservano, e tuttavia sono costrette, o per costume o per capriccio personale, a mantenere la finzione di una estraneità indifferente, non scambiando né parola né saluto. Vi è tra loro inquietudine e curiosità esasperata, l’isterismo di un bisogno insoddisfatto e innaturalmente represso di conoscenza e, soprattutto, una specie di teso riguardo. Perché l’uomo ama l’uomo finché non gli è dato giudicarlo, e il desiderio struggente è frutto di una conoscenza imperfetta."

    Thomas Mann, La Morte a Venezia (via spegniriaccendi)

    Vilhelm Hammershøi (1864–1916)

    Born in Copenhagen, Denmark, Hammershøi is known for his poetic, low-key interiors. Many of these feature his wife, Ida Ilsted, often seen from behind, and many were painted in their homes in Copenhagen.

    Throughout his career, Hammershøi remained independent of any group or movement: a fact which contributed to his work being largely forgotten until relatively recently. While their limited colour-palettes give Hammershøi’s works an air of calm elegance, they can also evoke a sense of mystery and even tension, and, despite their understated aesthetic, they were enough to unsettle the artistic establishment of Hammershøi’s day.

sondern. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.

    The art in this movie makes me melt.

    This was always my favourite scene as a kid, and I still frequently think about it to this day :P
