It's all make believe, isn't it?

Have you ever seen a girl cry, and she has no idea why?
I thought that only happens in movies. And my lecturer in Cinema Studies will refer that scene as 'the deciding point when the heroine realised that she's in love. And the reason she doesn't know why is that she's experiencing something that she's never experienced before. '

But you can't really say that in reality, can you? Like, 'Holy shit, this is the deciding point of the movie that you realise you're in love!'

That will just make me sound stupid, yes?

Also, have you seen a man running from one train station to another, chasing after something important in his life?
You know, another one of those things that happens in movies which my lecturer will say: ' after the train door closes, the hero realises his mistake and regret, and decides to pursue the heroine.'

It doesn't really happen in real life, does it? Like, the train is actually faster than human. And sometimes, you end up at the wrong station, with really sore feet.

That's also stupid, yes?
