Line(s) of the Day #Parasite

Parasite film

Ki-taek: You know what kind of plan never fails? No plan. No plan at all. You know why? Because life cannot be planned. Look around you. Did you think these people made a plan to sleep in the sports hall with you? But here we are now, sleeping together on the floor. So, there’s no need for a plan. You can’t go wrong with no plans. We don’t need to make a plan for anything. It doesn’t matter what will happen next. Even if the country gets destroyed or sold out, nobody cares. Got it?

Song Kang-ho in the phenomenal dark comedy thriller Parasite (2019), that tells of a family’s scheme to infiltrate a rich family’s household. Made on a budget of the equivalent of just over $10m dollars, the South Korean film won four Academy Awards (including Best Picture) and has already made over $260m worldwide.

Faith: Okay, look — one hand, two hands — put them together and what do they make?Student: One.
Faith: Right! So, Plato tells us we began as circles, and when we strived to be like the gods we were punished, by a thunderbolt that struck us, and cut us, right down, dead center, in half. We scattered to the ends of the Earth, searching and searching for our other half. Now, Plato is saying, that if we just stop, and go with the flow, and follow our destiny, It’ll lead us back to each other.

Marissa Tomei and Gina Maria Trello in the charming romcom Only You (1994), which tells of a young woman’s long-held belief in fate that leads her on an impulsive Italian adventure.
