Ode to a gesture in Monsieur Verdoux

there is this gesture in Monsieur Verdoux

it sums the whole emotional world up

there is this gesture in Monsieur Verdoux

it breaks my brain into pieces

and makes my heartbeat stop

there is this gesture in Monsieur Verdoux

it’s laughter

and that screaming at the end of Teorema

is nothing in comparison to it

there is this gesture in Monsieur Verdoux

that makes the whole world spin

that makes all living stop

How do I feel?

very abstract

very abstract
