I wanna hold your hand

Klube, kur ką tik grojo jo grupė,Nickas pamato savo ex, kuri jį paliko ir kuri jam vis dar labai rūpi. Ir ji ne viena, o su nauju draugu. Nickas apsidairo ir pamato nepažįstamą merginą, stovinčią šalia jo. Jos vardas- Norah ir Nickas paprašo jos penkias minutes pabūti jo mergina, ir Norah sutinka.

Taip prasideda liksma, žavi ir greita vienos labai ilgos nakties istorija. Knyga “Begalinis Niko ir Noros grojaraštis” yra intensyvi, greita, pilna nuorodų į popkultūrą ir (kaip knygos pavadinimas nurodo) į muziką. Knygos autoriai (!) Cohn ir  Levithan puikiai sugebėjo išlaikyti kūrinio vienovę, nors rašė skirtingus skyrius (Cohn rašė skyrius iš Norah pozicijos, o Levithan- iš Nicko).

Tikra feel good knyga, skaičiau ir džiaugiausi.

Man labai gaila, jog šitos knygos nebuvo, kai man buvo penkiolika ar šešiolika. Įtariu, jog  būčiau ją skaičiusi kokius dešimt kartų, būčiau klausiusi visų knygoje paminėtų dainų (visas paminėtas dainas galima rasti čia), nes šita įsimylėjimo istorija yra šilta, žaisminga, be didelių dramų. Tas paaugliškas įsimylėjimas nėra neigiama griaunanti jėga, o atvirkščiai- šiek tiek neurotiškas džiaugsmas su šimtu plazdančių drugelių pilve.

Pagal filmą yra pastatytas filmas. Aš jo dar nežiūrėjau, tai nedrįstu rekomenduoti, bet man nelabai vykusiai atrodo parinktas Nickas. Aš kažkaip kitaip jį įsivaizdavau.

“I Wanna Hold Your Hand.’ First single. Fucking brilliant. Perhaps the most fucking brilliant song ever written. Because they nailed it. That’s what everyone wants. Not 24-7 hot wet sex. Not a marriage that lasts a hundred years. Not a Porsche or a blow job or a million-dollar crib. No. They wanna hold your hand. They have a feeling that they can’t hide.”
Rachel Cohn (Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist)

“I mean, I don’t know how the world broke. And I don’t know if there’s a God who can help us fix it. But the fact that the world is broken – I absolutely believe that. Just look around us. Every minute – every single second – there are a million things you could be thinking about. A million things you could be worrying about. Our world – don’t you just feel we’re becoming more fragmented? I used to think that when I got older, the world would make so much more sense. But you know what? The older I get, the more confusing it is to me. The more complicated it is. Harder. You’d think we’d be getting better at it. But there’s just more and more chaos. The pieces – they’re everywhere. And nobody knows what to do about it. I find myself grasping, Nick. You know that feeling? That feeling when you just want the right thing to fall into the right place, not only because it’s right, but because it would mean that such a thing is still possible? I want to believe that.”

“We are the ones who take this thing called music and line it up with this thing called time. We are the ticking, we are the pulsing, we are underneath every part of this moment. And by making the moment our own, we are rendering it timeless. There is no audience. There are no instruments. There are only bodies and thoughts and murmurs and looks. It’s the concert rush to end all concert rushes, because this is what matters. When the heart races, this is what it’s racing towards.”

“Because the song is us and the song is her and this time I’m going to use her name. Norah, Norah, Norah – no rhymes really. Just truth.

I shouldn’t want the song to end. I always think of each night as a song. Or each moment as a song. But now I’m seeing we don’t live in a single song. We move from song to song, from lyric to lyric, from chord to chord. There is no ending here. It’s an infinite playlist.”
David Levithan (Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist)

“The way you’re singing in your sleep
The way you look before you leap
The strange illusions that you keep
You don’t know
But I’m noticing

The way your touch turns into arcs
The way you slide into the dark
The beating of my open heart
You don’t know
But I’m noticing”
David Levithan (Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist)

“She’s cinematic and I’m a fucking sitcom.”

  1. As irgi paziurejau ir man Nickas visai nepatiko. M.Cera tiko filme “June”, bet sitame filme man jis netiko. 😦
