Things are so bad...
1:16:03
they couldn't be any worse.
1:16:10
It's all over.
1:16:13
Oh, yes, I know how painful
that can be.

1:16:18
But in the long run, it's best.
1:16:21
You really wanted to be engaged?
1:16:25
Engaged, and maybe marry...
1:16:27
at a time like this?
1:16:31
If I may say so...
1:16:34
as families go,
the Finzi-Continis are not for us.

1:16:38
They're not our sort.
They're different.

1:16:41
They don't even seem Jewish.
1:16:47
Micol-- Maybe that's what
attracted you to her.

1:16:51
That she's superior to you
socially.

1:16:55
It'll pass.
1:16:59
You'll get over it.
1:17:02
And a lot sooner than you think.
1:17:07
I can imagine
what youÂ’re feeling now.

1:17:10
Yet, in a way,
I rather envy you.

1:17:13
In life, in order to understand...
1:17:15
to really understand the world...
1:17:18
you must die at least once.
1:17:20
So it's better to die young,
when there's still time left...

1:17:25
to recover and live again.
1:17:28
When you're old, it's much worse.
1:17:30
Why is that?
1:17:32
There's no time
to start over from zero.

1:17:35
And our generation has made
so many, many mistakes.

1:17:40
A few months and it will seem as if
none of this had ever happened to you.

1:17:45
You may even end up being glad.
1:17:48
You'll feel richer,
one might say.

1:17:51
More mature.
1:17:55
Let's hope so.
