Ibsen - Bergen - Norvegia

"I wrote The Feast at Solhoug in Bergen in the summer of 1855.
The play was acted for the first time on January 2, 1856, also at Bergen, as a gala performance on the anniversary of the foundation of the Norwegian Stage.
As I was then stage-manager of the Bergen Theatre, it was I myself who conducted the rehearsals of my play. It received an excellent, a remarkably sympathetic interpretation. Acted with pleasure and enthusiasm, it was received in the same spirit. The "Bergen emotionalism," which is said to have decided the result of the latest elections in those parts, ran high that evening in the crowded theatre. The performance ended with repeated calls for the author and for the actors. Later in the evening I was serenaded by the orchestra, accompanied by a great part of the audience. I almost think that I went so far as to make some kind of speech from my window; certain I am that I felt extremely happy."

Norvegia - Bergen văzut de sus - Fløyen

"La colline de Fløyfjellet, surnommée Fløyen, tient son nom de la girouette placée au sommet. Depuis des siècles, celle-ci indique la force et la direction du vent aux marins qui pénètrent dans le port en contrebas, ou le quittent. Maintes fois emportée par la tempête ou détruite par le feux, la girouette a chaque foi été reconstruite."



"Crée en 1918, le funiculaire part du centre-ville pour attendre le sommet de Fløyen à 320 m d'altitude."
 "Ce dernier offre une vue magnifique et, de là, partent de nombreux sentiers de randonnée."

Zbor de august: Stockholm, Suedia - Bergen, Norvegia

"Never before had he ridden so fast; and to ride fast and recklessly—that he had always liked. And, of course, he had never dreamed that it could be as fresh and bracing as it was, up in the air; or that there rose from the earth such a fine scent of resin and soil. Nor had he ever dreamed what it could be like—to ride so high above the earth. It was just like flying away from sorrow and trouble and annoyances of every kind that could be thought of.'
Project Gutenberg's The Wonderful Adventures of Nils, by Selma Lagerloef

Arcul de Triumf, Paris

"Souhaité par Napoléon Ier dès 1806.
L'architecte Jean-François Chalgrin s'inspire de l'arc romain de Titus à arche unique, mais s'en émancipe par des dimensions exceptionnelles (environ 50 m de hauteur, 45 m de
longueur et 22 m de largeur) et l'abandon des colonnes.
L'Arc de triomphe est inauguré en 1836 par le roi des Français, Louis-Philippe."

Elena - un alt film

Fie ele făcute înainte, pe vremea secerei şi ciocanului, sau acum, pe vremea firmelor,

Ne-am intrebat, uşor amuzaţi, cum ar fi fost tratat acelaşi subiect într-un film american,
grăbit să găsească şi să pedepsească vinovaţii, hotărât să separe clar răul de bine...

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close - Carte şi film

Afiş de film, rânduri de carte...
"J'ai arraché ces pages du cahier.

Je les ai classées en sens inverse pour que la dernière soit la première et la première la dernière.

En les feuilletant très vite, on avait l'impression que l'homme montait à travers les airs.

Et si j'avais eu plus de photos, il serait remonté jusqu'à une fenêtre et rentré dans le tour, et la fumée se serait en engouffrée dans le trou par lequel l'avion allait bientôt ressortir.

Papa aurait laissé ses messages à l'envers, jusqu'à ce que le répondeur soit vide, et l'avion se serait éloigné de lui jusqu'à Boston.

[...]

Il m'aurait raconté l'histoire [...], depuis «Je t'aime  »  jusqu'à « Il était une fois... »"

Nu-i aşa că pentru un copil e de neuitat o poveste spusă pe drum de seară,
care începe cu "A fost odată..." şi se termină cu "Te iubesc"?

Şi cu "un sărut tandru pe frunte",
după cum spunea altădată un, şi el de neuitat, "şef al sectorului suflete"...
