Brian Eno's By This River is such a haunting and mellow piece of music. It was very wisely used in the ending scene of Nanni Moretti's 2001 Palme d'Or winner La stanza del figlio (The Son's Room), proving a perfect example of the benefits of good music direction in a film. Just ask Sofia Coppola.

Here we are
Stuck by this river,
You and I
Underneath a sky that's ever falling down, down, down
Ever falling down.

Through the day
As if on an ocean
Waiting here,
Always failing to remember why we came, came, came:
I wonder why we came.

You talk to me
as if from a distance
And I reply
With impressions chosen from another time, time, time,
From another time.

Jag visste att det bara var en tidsfråga innan du skulle skriva om Nanni Moretti och "By this river". Så fin!
