Louis de Funès

10

   La mort, c’est bête et affreux. Je ne sais si c’est à cause de mes origines espagnoles et latines, mais je suis obsédé par l’idée de la mort. Je ne l’accepterai jamais. Nous sommes pleins de capacités et de puissance, nous rêvons de réaliser des grandes et petites choses, et subitement tout s’arrête. Il faut croire en la vie après la mort pour comprendre le sens de la vie. Mais je crois plutôt à mon passage sur Terre.
    Death is silly and horrible. I don’t know if it comes from my Spanish and latin origins, but I’m obsessed with the idea of death. I’ll never accept it. We are full of abilities and power, we dream of great and small things to do, and suddenly everything is stopped. We must believe in life after death to understand the meaning of life. But I rather believe in my life on Earth.

Happy 100th birthday Louis de Funès!!! [31 July 1914- 27 January 1983]

Fantômas (1964)

French film starring Jean Marais as the arch villain with the same name opposite Louis de Funès as the earnest but outclassed commissaire Paul Juve. In the film Juve teams up with journalist Fandor, also played by Marais, trying to catch Fantômas but never quite succeeding. It was France’s answer, in 1964, to the James Bond phenomenon that swept the world at around the same time. - Via: 1 | 2
