it was only a film

I was only 19 when I saw the film “The Cook, The Theif, His Wife and Her Lover.”  The girl with me was older.  I had no idea who I was, what I was doing.


Man: “I once saw a film in which the main character didn’t speak for the first 1/2 hour…I was competely absorbed as to what would happen, because anything was possible.”

Woman:  “And then?”

Man: “He spoiled it.  He spoke.”

Woman:  “And…?”

Man: “And within 5 minutes, I lost interest.”

Woman:  “So now you’ve opened your mouth do you expect me to lose interest?”

Man:  “It was only a film.”
