Port: You know, I miss times like this, places like this, more than anything in the world.Kit: I know you do.Port: This is what I wanted to show you: this place.Kit: Yes.Port: Come on!
Port: Here... the sky is so strange. It's almost solid. As if it were protecting us from what's behind. Look!Kit: What's behind?Port: Nothing! Just night.
Kit: I wish I could be like you, but I can't.Port: Maybe we're afraid of the same thing.Kit: No. We're not! You're not afraid to be alone. And you don't need anything. You don't need anyone. You could live without me.Port: You know that, for me, loving means loving you. No matter what's wrong between us, there can never be anyone else. Maybe we're both afraid of loving too much!
The breaks in the dialogue between the two travelers were left on purpose. Actually Port is a traveler, and Kit is a combination between a traveler and a tourist. The difference between the two is essential, being explained right at the beginning of the movie:Kit: Let's leave here!Port: Okay!Kit: Okay!
A tourist is someone who thinks about going home the moment that arrived, whereas a traveler might not coming back at all.Bernardo Bertolucci is the director, and the script belongs to the writer of the the book on which the movie is based, Paul Bowles, along with Mark Peoploe.
And because we can not skip the music, I will use it as an ending, but I will not end until I will make you aware of watching the clip (some sort of a trailer) right to its end, in order to discover something to make you reflect even more!
