King Cake finds its way to Portugal during the 19th century when Confeitaria Nacional opened as Portuguese monarchy’s official bakery in 1829. The cake is round with a large hole in the centre, resembling a crown covered with crystallized fruit. The characteristic of this cake is a fava bean and a small prize (usually a small metal toy). Tradition dictates that whoever finds the fava has to pay for the King cake next year.The inclusion of the prize has been discontinued under EU rules, for alleged safety reasons since mid-90s.

Je, tu, il, elle 1976


Julia: When I looked up suddenly... there were people walking in the street. I spilled all the sugar on the letters on the floor... and lay down again... and waited. I waited some more for it to pass or for something to happen - for me to believe in God or for you to send gloves for the cold.

Emma: "Existence precedes essence."

Lucy 2014


Lucy: We've codified our existence to bring it down to human size, to make it comprehensible, we've created a scale so we can forget its unfathomable scale.

Io sono Li 2011


Shun Li: Can a square be made a circle? Can different roads come together? Acute is the remorse for the lost way in the faltering steps of my return. Reluctant, my cart turns back. Muddled among the errors was the way.

Gone Girl 2014


Amy Dunne: I'm the cunt you married. The only time you liked yourself was when you were trying to be someone this cunt might like. I'm not a quitter, I'm that cunt. I killed for you; who else can say that? You think you'd be happy with a nice Midwestern girl? No way, baby! I'm it.

Interstellar 2014


Brand: Maybe it means something more - something we can't yet understand. Maybe it's some evidence, some artifact of a higher dimension that we can't consciously perceive. I'm drawn across the universe to someone I haven't seen in a decade who I know is probably dead. Love is the one thing that we're capable of perceiving that transcends dimensions of time and space. Maybe we should trust that, even if we can't understand it.

Mauvaise sang 1986


Anna: Life is splendid with him. He guides me so well. He requires of me very beautiful things, very rigorous. You know, he is self-taught. Yes, he has done it all. He looked at me with the eyes of an inventor, with the eyes of a researcher, like I was an invaluable discovery, as if I had the solution to something. Something secret and mysterious that is hidden deep inside him. Sometimes I get so close, so near, but more often I am light years away? Curious, isn't it? It's my life, this thing, this thing like an enigma. An enigma that glues us together, both of us accomplices together. Maybe our love will die if it is solved too early or maybe not at all.

Elle s'appelait Sarah 2010



Julia Jarmond: And so I write this for you, My Sarah. With the hope that one day, when you're old enough, this story that lives with me, will live with you as well. When a story is told, it is not forgotten. It becomes something else, a memory of who we were; the hope of what we can become.

Trust 1990



Maria Coughlin: I'm looking at this guy, right? And I looked at him a lot before. So now I know that I have this little piece of him actually in me. Physically in me, and it makes me feel completely different, I don't know, sort of special or something. So I'm talking to him... I'm talking to him and I realize, I'm, I'm talking to him, and I realize that he doesn't even see me. And I'm wondering what it was he was seeing when he did this. I go over it in my head, and now I know what it was he was seeing. It's really simple. He's seeing my legs. He 's seeing my breasts. My ass. My mouth. He's seeing my cunt... How can I have been so stupid? That's really all there is to see, isn't it?

Public Enemies 2009


John Dilinger: I was raised on a farm in Moooresville, Indiana. My mama died when I was three, my daddy beat the hell out of me cause he didn't know no better way to raise me. I like baseball, movies, good clothes, fast cars, whiskey, and you... what else you need to know?

The Grand Budapest Hotel 2014


M. Gustave: You see, there are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity. Indeed that's what we provide in our own modest, humble, insignificant... oh, fuck it.
