Memories (Kim Jee Woon, S Korea, 2002)

— Ten years —

I remember walking with her along the Golden Jubilee Bridge once, students in Springtime, arm in arm, and came her question: “Do you think we’ll still know each other in ten years?”

The songs she once shared I might play at Christmas, to recall her smile, her manner and voice, the affection she once showed . . . But this is senseless, for being unilateral: those songs she’ll have passed on to others long ago. My association dead.

But Terry and Julie cross over the river
