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: There is increasing interaction between images and language. One might say that living in society today is almost like living in a vast comic strip.


Narrator: Where is the beginning? But what beginning? God created heaven and earth. But one should be able to put it better. To say that the limits of language, of my language, are those of the world, of my world, and that in speaking, I limit the world, I end it. And when mysterious, logical death abolishes those limits, there will be no question, no answer, just vagueness.


Narrator: Objects exist, and if we pay them more attention than we do people, it is because they exist more than those people. Dead objects live on. Living people are often dead already.
