Taxi Driver (1976) dir. Martin Scorsese

The English-language version of Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot begins with a warning: “Don’t look for a plot, for a holiday is meant purely for fun.”
The film does not feature a plot in the traditional sense of a novel or short story, but presents recurring themes, episodes, and characters that bear more of a resemblance to poetic structure. The film is also noted for Tati’s use of wide-angle cinematic framing, in which a motionless camera captures the action without following the actors or cutting to close ups that emphasize the jokes and actors’ reactions.

"Never, oh! never, nothing will die
The stream flows
The wind blows
The cloud fleets
The heart beats
Nothing will die”
