An der Küste liest man steigt die Flut…….on the coast one reads the tide rises

Pascal Lamorisse, (Captain)  Eva Goessling (Passenger) vorm Pampelonne Beach, St. Tropez

Oddyseus mit Nereide, sanft im prickelnden Wellensalat, Poseidon schlummert träge, Cap Camarat ist befreit, kecke Grillen knabbern Pampelonne und Telemachos liest man, hat nur Wut.Wut.Wut.

Oddyseus with Nereid, gently sparkling in choppy wave salad, Poseidon sluggish slumbers, Cap Camarat is free, bold crickets nibble Pampelonne and Telemachos one reads, has only anger, anger, anger.

Pascal Lamorisse, son of Albert Lamorisse and actor in his fathers movie “Red Ballon”. Cannes Film Festival: Palme d’Or du court métrage/Golden Palm; The Red Balloon, Best Short Film 1956 . Academy Award,  Oscar; The Red Balloon, Best Writing, Best Original Sreenplay  1957. The movie is a poem, the adventures of a young boy who one day finds a sentient, mute, red balloon, is told.

Pascal shared a room with Florian, the  brother’s of my best friend Tina, in a boarding school in Germany. Today he has a vineyard, Domaine de Meaux, Le Vin des Cineastes, in the Provence and visited us on that day in the Bastide Blanche, the estate of Tina’s father in Ramatuelle, where we were on holiday. He shows us, that he is brilliant photgrapher. Tina told me, that Pascal once visited them not using his black Volkswagen Golf GTI, he needed to be a little vaster, and took a helicopter.
