Monday, and it's time for another line or two from our patron, Woody Allen.
This week it's from a film that the man himself considers to be one of his best, Stardust Memories.
Allen plays a neurotic film director who is plagued by fans telling him they prefer his 'earlier, funnier films'. He insists it's not autobiographical. Okay...
Anyway, here's an exchange between Woody's character, Sandy Bates, and his ex-girlfriend, Dorrie, played by Charlotte Rampling:
Dorrie: That aftershave. It just made my whole childhood come back with a sudden Proustian rush.
Sandy Bates: That's because I'm wearing Proustian Rush by Chanel.
