Quotation For The Week

In this scene, Papillon and Louis are looking over a cliff and discussing a plan to get off the penal colony – an isolated island. The sea is below and they are watching the waves roll in and out.


Papillon: bag of coconuts, tied together, just throw them over, float out on a wave

Louis: then what happens?

Papillon: the mainland is only 24 miles, you just drift with the current, only 2 days

Louis: you are certain?

Papillon: yea

Louis: it seems so, so desperate

Papillon: yea

Louis: do you think it will work?

Papillon: does it matter?

– Movie Papillon, 1973
