“I’ll love you, dear, I’ll love you. Till China and Africa meet”

Something I loved, even from the first time watching As I Walked Out One Evening, was how the spinny kiss came so early. It’s supposed to be the climax, like it was in Ode. But here it comes almost at the beginning, echoing the poem’s opening celebration of love that outlasts continents.

It creates a sense of expectation, even apprehension. The story has to go somewhere. If the speaker is already spinny-kissing and waxing rhapsodic about timeless love, where is there left to go?

And then it goes there. Auden, and Yulin and Mary Kate and Zack, go there. And Sean goes there, especially in the voiceover, which is my favorite favorite thing.
