Humphrey Bogart over whisky, in the dark upstairs of Ric’s Cafe in “Casablanca” talking to Sam who is standing behind him and he says “Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.”

Channel 12

Scene from Zhang Yimou’s movie “The Road Home”. Delicate hands, side-lit open a rough-wood cupboard, where you see beautiful uneven bowls of ceramic, all different designs. One is removed from the pile, and the cupboard doors closed. Exquisite cinematography. Even in thirty seconds.

Channel 14

From the italian movie “Malena”. A young boy runs through the skeleton of a boat and puts his head between two of it’s “ribs”, coated with black varnish of some sort, his face reflected in the varnish. He pulls out a little monocular (How do you say half a binocular?) and looks at what is happening inside a car where a beautiful woman is seated in the passenger seat, crying and turning her head away from a middle-aged man with a mustache, who is wearing a hat, seated at the wheel.
