HUSBANDS AND WIVES (1992)


See, I’ve always had this penchant…
…for what I call ” kamikaze women.”
I call them kamikazes because they crash their plane.
They crash it into you, and you die with them.
As soon as there’s little chance of it working out…
…something clicks in my mind. Maybe because I’m a writer.
A dramatic or aesthetic component becomes right…
…and I go after that person.
There’s a certain dramatic ambience that’s almost…
…as if I fall in love with the situation.
Of course, it has not worked out well for me.

EXT. FATHER’S HOUSE - DAY
Juan Antonio’s father sits at a table on the terrace and drinks out of his cup.
Juan Antonio and Vicky stand in the yard near a well.
Juan Antonio: This was my favorite place to come and read when I was young. And, yes, uh...I wanted to be a writer, not a painter. Painting came later. And I wanted to play music, too. I mean, all I knew is that I was full of -- I don’t know -- real emotion and I had to find a way to express it.
Vicky: Oh, Cristina says the same thing.
Juan Antonio: Cristina’s a very interesting girl.
Juan Antonio gestures at a low wall around a tree.
Juan Antonio (cont'd): Wanna sit?
Vicky: Yeah.
Juan Antonio and Vicky sit down on the wall.
Vicky (con't): So, uh, tell me, why won’t your father publish his poems?
Juan Antonio: Well, because he hates the world, and that’s his way of getting back at them -- to create beautiful works and then...to deny them to the public, which I think, it’s...
Vicky: My God. Well, what makes him so...angry toward the human race?
Juan Antonio: Mm, because after thousands of years of civilization...they still haven’t learned to love.
