Finding some time to yourself can be difficult in this crowded, fast-paced world, but photographer Gilles Monney has discovered the magically tranquil oasis of the mountains. Monney’s series of landscape photos that highlight the meditative effects of mountainous settings, titled Solitude, feature solo subjects taking in the majestic environment that surrounds them.
The scene where Joel and Clementine watch the circus go through the streets was made up on the spot, as the film crew and cast happened to be working nearby and Michel Gondry decided it could work well in the film. The part where Clementine disappears suddenly is one of Gondry’s favorite moments of the film, as Jim Carrey didn’t know Kate Winslet was going to disappear and Gondry liked it because Carrey’s face appears so saddened. When the sound blanks out in the final film, Carrey is actually saying “Kate?”
