Movie dialogue between Sofia and Yves after they meet on the steps…
by Joy Thomas
S-How long are you in town for?
Y-Couple of days. Are you okay?
Y-It was inevitable wasn’t it?
Y-Its really funny, yea, eventually you run away long enough…you’re gonna…
S-(mutters)…. bump into…again
Y-that’s funny. I think if it weren’t for gravity I would have fallen off the face of the earth.
S-I didn’t think you were going to call…. I’m glad you did. It’s crazy, there are so many questions I want to ask you, but I don’t know if I can.
S-I don’t know if I want to know any of the answers to any of them, you know?
Y-There’s some seriously bad territory, huh?
S-Did you ever think this would happen? How many times have you been in Paris?
Y-I’ve been here….I’m counting ‘cos I know I come like 6 times a year…
Y-And I don’t know my times tables… So I am figuring 35 times maybe?
S-6 times 8, 48
Y-48 times. You’re nervous, you only bite your nails when you’re nervous. So the Tabasco never worked?
S-I started liking Tabasco after that.
The beautiful original score for For Lovers Only was composed by Kubilay Uner, who also worked with the Polish Brothers on one of their previous movies - Stay Cool. You can follow Kubi on twitter and facebook or visit his official webpage for music samples, biography and more.
The original For Lovers Only soundtrack is available on iTunes.
Next to Kubi’s music, there’s a list of great tastefully chosen songs that accompany For Lovers Only. As one of my favourite reviews says, ‘One could be forgiven for thinking that they had been especially written for the movie as they sit so comfortably within it.’ [x]
Here’s a tracklist of all songs in order of appearance in the movie, thanks to janeisles.tumblr.com:
- “La Noyeé” - Serge Gainsbourg (Opening / Arriving in Paris)

But that’s not all yet! There are some more songs associated with For Lovers Only. As Stana Katic interviewed Mark Polish for one of her official newsletter in May 2011, they put together two playlists based on what songs their characters Sofia and Yves would choose for each other.
Here are both of the playlists; ‘Yves to Sofia‘ and ‘Sofia to Yves‘ .
