Any religious person, must, of course, face such a divide. There is a great war that occurs between how much we love man and how much we love God. As a Jewess, I can't fully support all of the themes and ideas in the film (especially the supposition that supporting everything taboo is by default the way in which we become individualistic); as a human being, I find them to be inspiring. There's something gemlike and sparkling in the film, beginning with the fire licking at the eviction papers as they fall into the street and ending with Mimi's comment that Angel was looking good in Heaven.
And of course, I love the song "Your Eyes."
