FAREWELL:

Good evening Madame

and you Monsieur

The following is only a tender farewell

From a homeless refugee

Who on the stage thought to find

In words, a gentle refuge

O! You young masters and mistresses

Accept without any anger

The complaint of a traveler

Who followed a princess

Into a theater heavens, what misfortune.

The idiot thought in his fright

That if any freedom remained

In our unloved Europe

It was in spoken promises

That flow from the actor's body

How many letters?

How many images?

How many books, all well-written

Were sent in spite of the storm

But received in recompense

Only absence, silence, indifference?

FAREWELL:

TO:

You who, every night under your pillows

Claudel, Artaud, Molire find

Antigone and Lorenzaccio

Sometimes think of the other idiot

Laboring to align three words

I do not know why gentle comrades

I must beseech so much

And, young and beautiful friends

Why I must beg you

To not leave the ship stranded

Is it possible elsewhere that

A pretty battalion would form

To cross mountains

To look for the words of the other

Without obliging him to say his name

Romeo who threw chairs

And Juliet who rubbed her ass

Poor William you are beaten

Our world so ill at ease

AIDS still unvanquished

FAREWELL:

TO:

Speech flows from the mouth

Can one kiss it, my dear

Before you fly off the handle

And madly declaim

That private life has the force of law?

You who sacrifice your body

And steal the characters soul

Lift yourself up one more time

Without considering the adjustments

Walking in step with the exception

Was it a bit too unreasonable

To believe that in this magic place

One day the human soul might

Pierce the scientific secret

Because your hands are in mine?

Farewell TNS and Strasbourg

The exiled thus takes his step

But if the public is in error

When one salutes does one not say

A very fond hello to you, my dear?

Farewell my friends

FAREWELL:

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…
