“The nice man has learnt not to say everything; that’s why he seems so nice. There’s a lot going on in his mind that he’s not quite allowing himself to express. He loves you too much: he’d rather be kind than entirely honest – and feels, perhaps quite rightly, that he cannot really be both. Such is the condition of the nice man.
The nice man is intent on not being the lad or the bad boy. He had enough of that macho rowdy behaviour at school and never wants to be exposed to it again. He is tender towards his mother and his little sister. He likes women a lot, as friends and not just as lovers….”
A lot isn’t expressed between couples because of a fear of not seeming very ‘nice’. That’s deeply unfortunate, and stores up a lot of trouble. We’d be better off daring to be a little more honest. If you like our films, take a look at our shop (we ship worldwide): https://goo.gl/9YyHYF
