Jacques Becker, born 105 years ago today, on the set of Les Amants de Montparnasse.

I cannot get used to the idea that Jacques is dead. He was my  brother and son; I cannot believe he is now rotting in his grave. I  would sooner think he is waiting for me in some corner of the next  world, waiting for us to make another film together. - Jean Renoir
