Well I sort of stumbled on the documentary and somehow was compelled to watch it. The more I watched, I realised that I had something very much in common with you. Sure, I'm not looking to marry, but I am also looking for a constant, tangible, secure relationship with a guy that I am, frankly, obsessed with. A guy who is kind of immature and just doesn't share the ideas in my head. So I wait for him (WHY WHY WHY I ask myself). During the commercial break, I rang my best friend and told her to watch the documentary that was on: NOW. Watching Nina sit in coffee shops with her friends or anyone else willing to listen, asking, pleading for advice and consolation hit home so hard. I saw myself in Nina, I saw my best friends in her best friends. I especially related to the frustration, anger, desperation and the complete obsessive desire displayed in the film. I was touched by its frankness, honesty. At times I cried a little, cringed, dug my nails into my palms as I thought: HEY, THAT'S ME! My friend rang me back in an equal state of shock/amazement/awe after the documentary had finished, and I said: 'So what did you think?'. You know what she said? She said: "Shit Parisa, that was YOUR life." Yeah, no kidding.
Once again, all my thanks and love for the wonderful documentary, amazing experience and reply. THANKS!
Please write me back.
