Arnon Grunberg



Tonight I saw Jean-Luc Godard’s movie “Breathless” (À bout de souffle).
I might have seen the movie a couple of years ago, but I have no recollection of that event. Probably I fell asleep while watching the movie.
Tonight I didn't fall asleep.
I wasn’t taken with Jean Seberg – but I was smitten with Jean-Paul Belmondo.
Seberg quotes the last sentence of Faulkner’s novel “The Wild Palms”: “Between grief and nothing I will take grief.” But Belmondo believes that if you have to choose between nothing and grief you have to choose nothing.
