This is a film about a girl and a head of broccoli: its history, its power, its meaning. What can the broccoli say? What does it represent?
a vegetable; to france, again and again: thanks catherina (mme. medici).
too many eyes, lost in forever. a priest—still in pajamas.
morning’s over, it’s all gone, the green and the grief, once and for all again. again!
a vegetable, a model, and a camera—that’s all we’ll ever need.
but make sure she always says hello—
—bonjour napoleon! godard: silence magnifique; all the best—to you and your italic daydreams.
brocoli lost, brocoli won.
they have an answer: the vegetable, les légumes. la lingua franca. le légume franca.
merci, brocoli. tu as mon chéri, mon amor: je t’aime.
