Excerpt from the movie “Legend of 1900”

“It wasn’t what I saw that stopped me Max… it was what I didn’t see. Take a piano: keys begin, keys end.

You know there are 88 of them. Nobody can tell you any different. They are not infinite. You’re infinite… And on those keys, the music that you can make… is infinite. I like that. That I can live by… You rolled out in front of me a keyboard of millions of keys, millions and billions of keys that never end. And that’s the truth Max, that they never end. That keyboard is infinite… and if that keyboard is infinite, then on that keyboard there is no music you can play. You’re sitting on the wrong bench… That is God’s piano.

Christ, did you… did you see the streets, just the streets? There were thousands of them! Then how do you do it down there, how do you choose just one… one woman, one house, one landscape to look at, one way to die…? Land? Land is a ship too big for me, it’s a woman too beautiful, it’s a voyage too long, perfume too strong…”
