I was in my bra and panties.

I went to the fire.

My back was to her,

but I knew she was watching me.

I asked why she said nothing.

She didn't reply, so I turned around.

She was by the window,

her back to me.

She sensed my gaze. She took off

her dressing gown. She was naked.

She asked if I thought her bottom

was too big. I said no.

She turned around, parted her legs

and asked me to describe them.

I said she had white thighs...

...and her bush

was a black smudge above them.

She called Paul.

She came up behind me.

Why?

To unhook my bra.

Then Paul came in.

Wearing pajamas, the coat open.

He had a bottle of whiskey.

He made me drink.

Then he told Monique to go on.

What was she doing?

Fondling my breasts.

And then?

Paul stripped off too,

and flaunted his penis for me.

He told Monique to take off

my panties.

He made me kneel and put my head

between Monique's legs.

Now my back was turned to Paul.

I remember she was

describing my buttocks...

...and he gazed at them

all the time...

...then came closer

and fingered them.

The rest of the bottle

was poured over my back.

I felt the liquid run between

my buttocks.

Paul knelt and began to lick my ass.

It wasn't unpleasant.

It was quite wonderful.

I felt Monique's bush against my neck...

...her hair mingling with my hair.

While her husband

caressed my buttocks...

...she put my hands

on her buttocks...

...and she fondled my breasts again.

I felt her buttocks open to receive

my fingers, then close upon them.

And you?

They wanted me to talk about it,

so that my sensations would excite them.

Only Gitanes?

No American cigarettes?

In my jacket.

None left.

- Take a Gitane.

- I can't bear them.

Is that all?

After a while, Paul asked Monique

to change places with me.

She kissed my bush while I helped

Jean-Luc Godard

Jean-Luc Godard (French: [ʒɑ̃lyk ɡɔdaʁ]; born 3 December 1930) is a French-Swiss film director, screenwriter and film critic. He rose to prominence as a pioneer of the 1960s French New Wave film movement.Like his New Wave contemporaries, Godard criticized mainstream French cinema's "Tradition of Quality", which "emphasized craft over innovation, privileged established directors over new directors, and preferred the great works of the past to experimentation." As a result of such argument, he and like-minded critics started to make their own films. Many of Godard's films challenge the conventions of traditional Hollywood in addition to French cinema. In 1964, Godard described his and his colleagues' impact: "We barged into the cinema like cavemen into the Versailles of Louis XV." He is often considered the most radical French filmmaker of the 1960s and 1970s; his approach in film conventions, politics and philosophies made him arguably the most influential director of the French New Wave. Along with showing knowledge of film history through homages and references, several of his films expressed his political views; he was an avid reader of existential and Marxist philosophy. Since the New Wave, his politics have been much less radical and his recent films are about representation and human conflict from a humanist, and a Marxist perspective.In a 2002 Sight & Sound poll, Godard ranked third in the critics' top-ten directors of all time (which was put together by assembling the directors of the individual films for which the critics voted). He is said to have "created one of the largest bodies of critical analysis of any filmmaker since the mid-twentieth century." He and his work have been central to narrative theory and have "challenged both commercial narrative cinema norms and film criticism's vocabulary." In 2010, Godard was awarded an Academy Honorary Award, but did not attend the award ceremony. Godard's films have inspired many directors including Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, Brian De Palma, Steven Soderbergh, D. A. Pennebaker, Robert Altman, Jim Jarmusch, Wong Kar-wai, Wim Wenders, Bernardo Bertolucci, and Pier Paolo Pasolini.From his father, he is the cousin of Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, former President of Peru. He has been married twice, to actresses Anna Karina and Anne Wiazemsky, both of whom starred in several of his films. His collaborations with Karina—which included such critically acclaimed films as Bande à part (1964) and Pierrot le Fou (1965)—was called "arguably the most influential body of work in the history of cinema" by Filmmaker magazine. more…
