Eric Cantona on the Portuguse word saudade.
'Cantona, who lives in Lisbon with his family, mentions a Portuguese word – saudade. He doesn’t know an English or French equivalent. “It’s just a feeling. It’s when you remember something, for instance your grandmother, and you have this great feeling of seeing her in your souvenir, and one second later you realise you will not see her any more because she is dead. That is saudade.” This is the emotion that The Friends We Lost evokes for him. “Yes, I love this word. It’s more than regret. It’s this little moment.”
