Quotes

[first lines]
Lemmy Caution: Can we tell the story of time? Time itself, in its own essence? No, we can't. It would be useless. A story with the words: "And then time has passed and then followed its own course" and so and so. No one in their perfect mind would write such narrative. It would be like trying to hold a single note or just one accord for a whole hour and call it music.

Our hero, Lemmy Caution from the sci-fi detective art classic Alphaville - 1965, is let loose in a unified Germany. Nutty Godard has a lot to say about politics and rambling philosophy that will either shine new light on the dark sections of your brain or baffle you senseless.
