Vladimir: Together again at last! We'll have to celebrate this. But how? Get up till I embrace you.
Estragon: Not now, not now.

who said it could not be filmed?

This is a magic piece of work. I am sure if Becket could see it, he would be justly happy of the performances and how it was laid onto celluloid. For those unfamiliar with it, there are no filmic landscapes or action, just the action and landscape of life.
