"I see you"

I'm a little late, because I only just saw the movie Avatar recently.  I didn't go to theatres to see it (so I didn't see it in 3-D) because I stayed home with Nicolas.  (We rented a movie for him at home instead).

Marc bought the movie in blue ray, so we watched it the other day.

I know a few people didn't think it was that great, other than the special effects.

The story ressembles the story of first nations and the first Europeans who came to conquer (and take the ressources).  But there's a twist, the natives on this world really are connected to their world in a special way.  I thought the story was well-written, I didn't find it the boring repeat of stories already told that some people thought it was.  The story was able to stand alone, even without all the cool special effects.

But let's just say for a moment that the special effects weren't all that great and the story line not all that original.

It wouldn't matter as long as there was still the "I see you." between the two.

It is rare that Hollywood captures a glimpse of Eden and how relationships between a man and a woman were meant to be, but this one did:

I see you.

Everything.  I see your dreams, your failings, your desires, your strengths and your weaknesses.  I see you.  Nothing is hidden.  Your soul is stripped bare to me.  There is no need to hide, no need to cover up.  I see who you really are, and what's more...

I love you.
