Sex Is Comedy

If I'm ill at ease, screw your film.
But I'm well-paid, so I'm happy.
Don't say it's just for the money.
No, I'm glad to do your film,
and glad to be well-paid.

You insulted me on the beach!
You enjoy that!

No. I don't!
When I see the scene's bad, I panic.
I don't realize what I'm saying.
Awful things! They freeze me up.
I want you to be as I see you.
- I can't see myself!
- You must sense it!

Flirting with everyone,
as if you wanted to bed them!

I'm furious it won't be in the film.
But we got it once: the scene
in the dunes is great!

You're the way I like you,
and you have dimples.

An ironic counterpoint
to the scene's sentimentality.

A thing and its opposite.
But in the dune scene.
something happened.

You let yourself go.
You stopped protecting yourself,
worrying if you were obscene.
Fear of being obscene,
makes one obscene.

The camera frames
what one sees. doesn't see.

or thinks one sees.
And the emotion you convey.
Emotion is never dirty or obscene.
It's grace.

Sorry to interrupt your
intimate conversation...

It's not intimate.
I watched you from afar,
I didn't dare come over.

How did we look?
You have a weird relationship
with your Actor,

so passionate, like two wildcats.
No one dares interfere.
as you go at each other.

It started badly,
but I think we'll get over that.

He's horribly proud!
