No eternal reward will forgive us now for wasting the dawn.

I have many favorite films, but I often say that the film that kind of changed my life when I was growing up was Jules et Jim. It’s what drew me to love film. Then, when Truffaut died and I heard it on the radio, I pulled off the freeway, sat on the side of the road and cried. I didn’t know Truffaut, but the reason that film moved me so much was because it gave me permission to be different. You didn’t have to do everything the straight-and-narrow way, and you didn’t have to do everything the way you were being told to you. There were alternatives, and it opened up the world to me. It wasn’t so much that I love that film more than many others – and I’ve seen so many that have moved me – but it was the one that showed me the power of film. - Naomi Foner.
