    I cannot wait for this. I loved the book. And I saw a shorter version of this trailer a couple weeks ago and it just brings tears to my eyes. I’m not even sure why. (I mean, I guess I sort of know.) Anyway, can’t wait!

    ang lee always makes the prettiest looking films. my eyeballs can’t wait to see this!

    • And pretty goes a long way for me as far as film is concerned. Lee gets panned for his Hulk film, but I think even that one is visually/stylistically interesting (with the play on the comic panels and so forth).

    This one, too?? Another of my favorites. And another of what I thought were unfilmable novels.

    Ang Lee is living the life, isn’t he? So much for solipsistic, navel-gazing, same thing over and over again artists. Ang plays at the top of every genre he tries. What on earth the budgets must be for his films?

    I can’t watch this because I hate underwater scenes, but that still is gorgeous.
