The movie exposes many facets of the loneliness of city life and it tacitly demonstrates the impulse of human curiosity.
It explores our fascination with looking at persons, objects and things – and – the attraction of “objects of our attentions”.
It matters that you make the other person happy, and in fact, you are And no, I don't mean sugarcoating things or lying to your partner.

Once upon a time – we lived in a high-rise residential complex – and from the rear balcony (“Rear Window”) of our top floor apartment – I had a “grandstand view” of the apartments of neighbouring building.?
I tried to believe my own lie until I was gluing together a hand-made Valentine card for him and felt the urge to write “I love you.” That’s when I had to admit to myself and to him that I did not want a platonic relationship. Platonic, by the way, comes from a view held by the Greek philosopher Plato who advocated “pure, spiritual affection, subsisting between persons of the opposite sex, unmixed with carnal desires, and regarding the mind only and its excellences.” Or, more simply put, a "just friends" status with no romantic feelings. Despite the debate, it happens enough that if you want to avoid the often irrecoverable impact it has on the friendship and the awkwardness that accompanies it, here are some steps you can take to stay in the platonic relationship zone and guard yourself from the drama of a premature romantic relationship.
There is mixed evidence out there as to whether or not two people can maintain a platonic relationship or whether eventually one or both will begin developing more than friendship feelings. To bare your heart in an intimate friendship with someone of the opposite sex without an understanding that you are moving toward a lifelong commitment is to intentionally steer your friendship toward the edge of a cliff—it will be a miracle if you do not reap bitter heartache. How much can you give of yourself without risking your heart or theirs?
