Une histoire d’eau (1961, Fran?ois Truffaut and )

By Andrew Wickliffe on Aug 6, 2019 From The Stop Button

Une histoire d?eau has a sense of humor, which ought to do it some favors, but none of the humor connects. The short, which co-director Truffaut apparently intended to be a romance, is instead this rushed, peculiar? blathering would be the best word for it, I think. D?Eau is about college student Ca...

Jean-Luc Godard Quotes:

Narrator: Our thoughts are not the substance of reality, but its shadow.


Narrator: How do you render events? How to say or show that at 4:10 p.m. that afternoon, Juliette and Marianne came to the garage where Juliette's husband works?
