Sooo yesterday I posted a Lana del Rey song, what I should have mentioned in that post was where the the picture on the top comes from. You recognize it? Yes! How did you know! That is an image from one of my favorite movies!
Have you ever seen the movie “The Painted Veil”? It stars Edward Norton and takes place in beautiful rural China. The best part is that it is based on one of the most romantic books of all time written by Somerset Maugham. “The Painted Veil” is a tragic love story, set in the mountains of China during the 1920’s. The novel follows Kitty through a short period of her life and was very well adapted in 2006 by a movie of the same name. Here’s the trailer:
Oh man, do I love movie trailers, “Sometimes the greatest journey is the distance between two people.” Seriously though, if you’re not going to read the book at least see the movie, it’s one that will stick with you for a very long time.
P.S. I just remembered that a while ago I posted a song from “The Painted Veil.” You can find it by going to this link here. I think it’s one of the best movie soundtrack piano pieces ever written.
