Fragment d’un discours amoureux.

In “A Lover’s DiscourseRoland Barthes writes about the language used by lovers. I have yet to read the book because I cannot find a decently priced copy. But the internet provides a healthy dose of Barthes and sometimes there are surprises too, like this video.

Although not without obscenity that I’m told is distinctly French, this short film aptly describes why movies are called such. It was nice to stumble upon and I hope you watch it. It makes me want to speak French again too.

L’amoureux qui n’oublie pas quelquefois meurt par excès, fatigue et tension de mémoire.
