“When you’re 20, you don’t know. All you know are bits and pieces. You grasp at experience. At that age, ‘I love’ is a mixture of many things.
To be completely at one with what you love takes maturity. That means searching. That’s the truth of life. That’s why love is a solution, but on the condition that it be true.”

I really like how well Latin Jazz suits the noir mood - the incessant, restless rhythm, the nervous flute, the bold banging of the piano spelling out the inevitability of fate…
