Acabo de terminar de ver el tercer hombre. Hermosa película de Carol Reed, que no es una mujer.
En un momento de la película el genio de Welles dice esto,
"You know what the fellow said – in Italy, for thirty years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love, they had five hundred years of democracy and peace – and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock."
Yo conocía esta frase. No sabía que era en esta película. La forma como lo dice y en el momento, es genial.
Paralelo a eso encontré ésta información..
This remark was added by Welles – in the published script, it is in a footnote. Greene wrote in a letter "What happened was that during the shooting of The Third Man it was found necessary for the timing to insert another sentence." Welles apparently said the lines came from "an old Hungarian play"; the painter Whistler, in a lecture on art from 1885 (published in Mr Whistler's 'Ten O'Clock' ), had said, "The Swiss in their mountains... What more worthy people!... yet, the perverse and scornful [goddess, Art] will have none of it, and the sons of patriots are left with the clock that turns the mill, and the sudden cuckoo, with difficulty restrained in its box! For this was Tell a hero! For this did Gessler die!" In This is Orson Welles (1993), Welles is quoted as saying "When the picture came out, the Swiss very nicely pointed out to me that they've never made any cuckoo clocks." Writer John McPhee also points out that during the period of time the Borgia flourished in Italy, Switzerland was "the most powerful and feared military force in Europe", and not the peacefully neutral country it is currently.
Más allá de eso..
Hoy es un buen día para escribir, la verdad que quiero escribir. Tengo muchas ganas. Más allá de no haber tenido un buen viernes, ayer fue excelente.
Un día alucinante, con miles de amigos. Charle con mucha gente, conocí nueva gente y me reí mucho. La verdad como siempre dice mi amigo Jose, el encuentro salva.
Los quiero mucho..
