all these while i thought "brokeback" means a gay relationship. but d'oh .. its like a totally misinterpreted phrase. Brokeback is actually just the name of a mountain used in this film - a place where the 2 guys hang out at, a place they can be free. its simply hilarious how people misuse the phrase to represent gay. the film has some seriously awesome backgrounds !! the mountains, the ranch, the horses, the river, even the sheep, nature has never been as inviting. a raw, powerful love story of two young men. a ranch hand and a rodeo cowboy, who meet while being sent to work together herding sheep in the isolated, harsh grasslands in Brokeback Mountain. they formed an unusual bond. the season ended n they parted ways, only to realize the depth of their feelings. thus begins a long affair that they desperately hide from those around them. a steaming n beautiful love story, which simultaneously proven to be devastating n bitter .. i was pretty impressed n moved by the movie. it kinda introduce something utterly new, daring us to be indifferent. a bittersweet yearning for that impossible n unfinished love they shared. gay or straight, love is as difficult nonetheless. so many things in life are trivia if compared. cherish n having faith while holding on, is by far the best we can do for any relationship. maybe its time to overlook that little trifles that has been bothering you. it sure cleared mine ..
