Quotes

Abraham Klimt: It is our duty to understand that the past exacts redemption, an infinitesimal part of which is perhaps within our power. There is a mysterious encounter between past generations and our own. We were expected on earth. It's because it's the question of origin. Because today, fear starts up when faced with the possible. Our age is in search of a lost question, weary of all the right answers.

A modern avant-garde pop clip of words for the intellects.
6 February 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I'm surprised that Godard still receives finance to make these style of films. But only he can get away with a modern avant-garde pop clip of words for the intellects. What saves most of his movies is the involvement of a big name French cast who give it their best.
