Beaumont's Lament

Netherlands, Limburg, Maastricht, Centre, Stationstraat, Facades, Sign (uncut)


Some movie scenes can be so strong that later on, even years and years after watching it, one word that’s part of it brings it back in an instant - in full detail. And for us that’s (amongst other words) the case with the word Beaumont.. And it was later reinforced by the release of the movie sound track on CD with the scene on it.

Whenever we see or hear the word (or walk through a little village with the same name on the flanks of the Mont Ventoux) we begin reciting (or something akin to that) the film script. You can hear it here on you tube.

From the movie: Jackie Brown: Arms dealer Sam Jackson has opened the boot of his car and a man is laying in it. Apperently lifeless. Partner in crime Robert de Niro starts the conversation: “Who’s that?” )
