A 6th photo and a quote from an old movie..

I've been asked by ILoveBlackAndWhite to post a 6th photo from the 6th folder in my computer and the story that goes along with the picture. So here it is. It is an image from the movie À bout de souffle, written and directed by Jean-Luc Godard. And of course , here's a quote from that movie:

Patricia : " Quelle est votre plus grande ambition dans la vie ? "
Le romancier Parvulesco : " Devenir immortel…et puis mourir. "

Patricia : " What is your greatest ambition in life ? "
Parvulesco, the novelist : " To become immortal, and then die. "

I love both the image and the quote. One of the images I think 'I wish I had taken it' :) and Jean Luc Goddard is one of my favourite filmmakers ever!...
