The Quiet Months
Grande Bellezza
“This is how it always ends. With death. But first there was life. Hidden beneath the blah, blah, blah, blah. It is all settled beneath the chatter chatter and the noise. Silence and sentiment. Emotion and fear. The haggard inconsistent flashes of beauty. And then the retched squalor and miserable humanity. All buried under the cover of the embarrassment of being in the world. Blah, blah, blah. Beyond there is what lies beyond. I don’t deal with what lies beyond. Therefore, let the novel begin. After all it’s just a trick. Yes, just a trick.”
From the 2013 Italian movie La Grande Bellezza (The Great Beauty)
Directed and written by Paolo Somentino
