Posted ByQuote
Claire Alex Wyler: There should be a stairway down to the water, a porch, a deck. Here, you're in a - in a box. A glass box with a view to everything that's around you... but you can't touch it. No interconnection between you and what you're looking at. (full quote)

Claire Alex Wyler: What's it like in the year 2006? Kate Forster: Well, I'm afraid the world's pretty much the same.

Claire Simon Wyler: Now, come on. You know as well as I do that the light in Barcelona is quite different from the light in Tokyo. And, the light in Tokyo is different from that in Prague.

Claire Alex Wyler: There should be a stairway down to the water, a porch, a deck. Here, you're in a - in a box. A glass box with a view to everything that's around you... but you can't touch it. No interconnection between you and what you're looking at. - Henry Wyler: I don't know, you know. He's got this big maple growing right in the middle of the house. - Alex Wyler: Containment. [He pushes a button which opens a glass door]. Containment and control. This house is about ownership, not connection. I mean, it's beautiful. Seductive, even. But, it's incomplete. [He pauses]. It was all about him. Dad knew how to build a house, not a home. But you know... I think he wants us to do what he couldn't. But, admitting that would mean admitting that he came up short in some way... that he could do more. And that tortures him. - Henry Wyler: Do you remembering being here with Mom? - Alex Wyler: I remember she tried to make it work here... with us... with him. (full quote)
