How can you have lived so long and still not get it?

Only Lovers Left Alive (2013)

"How can you have lived so long and still not get it? You've been pretty lucky in love though"

also "There's water here. And when cities in the South are burning, this place will bloom"

Rock'n'roll, vampires, vinyls, vintage guitars, sunglasses at nights, gloves always on, an entire library full with books in every language. The way the characters speak, the music they listen to, the way they travel, the way they love. 

Only lovers left alive. Love this movie. One of the few movies I can rewatch over and over again. Such a great microcosm of long lived perspectives. Wisdom gained with age.

ps: The scene where he’s fixing the space energy receiver and looking at the mushrooms is a work of art.
