Great answer Magpie... especially this part: [In reply to] Can't Post

My heart goes out to him. To face such failure with such self awareness. I've always admired him because he is self aware. Even without all the added drama the movie adds, book-Boromir knows he's done wrong by Frodo and he faces that and rises above to be a better person as he defends Merry and Pippin. And the movie gives me such a strong image of this rising soul - as he runs, runs, runs toward the two Hobbits and defends them with his life.

Good points here too [In reply to] Can't Post

You don't mention the next line. "Our people...our people...." The fact that Boromir registers some sense of comfort at these words is the summation of the Aragorn storyline for this movie. Boom.


It's as if, like you and zarabia imply, Boromir had no idea that Aragorn cared about the White City or the people of Gondor. I sometimes wonder what Boromir would have been like at Helm's Deep...

"A love surpassing that of a woman..." [In reply to] Can't Post

I've trotted that scripture out a few times when trying to explain the love these men (and hobbits etc) have for each other. Shared adversity seems to bring it out most sharply... but I believe it is there in any rightly named band of brothers.

Thanks to you and everyone for such heartfelt, excellent answers. It is a powerful scene indeed.

Ah, you're right! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd forgotten about that!

Still, I did spend a good part of the trilogy wanting to wash Viggo's hair.

...that came out sounding a bit Wrong. -_-
