At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul (1964) Poster

José Mojica Marins: Zé do Caixão


  • [first lines] 

    Zé do Caixão : What is life? It is the beginning of death. What is death? It is the end of life! What is existence? It is the continuity of blood. What is blood? It is the reason to exist!

  • Zé do Caixão : A woman who can't bear a child needs no care.

  • Zé do Caixão : [to the crowd at the bar]  Ah, I'm going to the crossroads by the graveyard. Anyone wants to follow me?

  • Zé do Caixão : [to Terezinha, after she bites his lips during an unasked kiss]  You have the fangs of a snake and the face of an angel.

  • Zé do Caixão : Let's go of the money, man!

    Zerequiel : [holding the money lost in a game of cards]  I can't. I need the money!

    Zé do Caixão : [stands up]  Let go of the money!

    [broke a bottle and slice off Zerequiel's fingers] 

    Zerequiel : [holding his hand covered in blood]  My hand, my hand...

    Zé do Caixão : As I said: I like brave men!

    [to everyone] 

    Zé do Caixão : Call the doctor. I'll pay for the bill to. Ah, you're my witnesses: it was an accident.
