Just a wee aside. I know I’m late to this party, but wondered how many of you have tracked down what Guy Pearce is miming to in this scene?:
It is the aria “È Strano! Ah, Fors’è Lui” from Verdi’s La Traviata. I mention this simply because it was not chosen by accident as a quick look at the lyrics show (you can click this image to see the full lyric):
QUESTION: Does knowing the song/lyrics add or detract from your reading of the film?
