The Fire Within (1963)
Alain Leroy: Life flows too slowly on me. So I speed it up. I set it right.
Dubourg: I'm older. The hopes are gone, but I have certainties now.
Alain Leroy: The sensitivity was in my heart, not my hands.
Alain Leroy: You've spent the last ten years in gilded mediocrity.
Alain Leroy: One day I realised I'd spent my life waiting. For women. Money. Action. So I drank myself stupid.
Alain Leroy: I'd have liked to captivate people, hold on to them, bind them close.
Alain Leroy: I don't find it funny to sleep on a tomb... when it's so easy to open it and sleep inside.
Alain Leroy: I have no power over them. I was handsome at 20. They still find me fun and nice. But it's not enough. I have no hold on them. And yet, it's only through women... that I've felt some hold on life.
