Shoot the Piano Player | François Truffaut | 1960
While shooting exteriors in San Francisco, Myrna, Bill Powell and his unofficial fiancée Jean Harlow were to stay St. Francis Hotel:
“At the St. Francis in San Francisco, they had reserved a Flyshaker Suite for Bill and me. The management assumed we were married. Already they considered us a couple after only five pictures together! Well, of course it was hysterical. Here was Jean, but we couldn´t be obvious about the situation with the press on our heels. To complicate the matters further, conventioneers had taken every other room except a little hall bedroom downstairs somewhere. I didn´t know what to do, but Jean was marvellous. “There is nothing for you to do,” she said. “We’ll just have to put Bill downstairs.” I never saw this room, so I don’t know how bad it was, but Bill complained bitterly, let me tell you, angling to get upstairs.”
Slavoj Zizek on Bergman’s Persona

I can’t be Zizek because Zizek is Zizek.
If you scroll up and down a bunch it looks like he’s dancing
huh, it does a little.
But I do agree with him, that scene is quite erotic.
There is a visually erotic scen from Jean Vigo’s L’Atalante. The two lovers are seperated, in different beds, rolling around, sleepless, thinking of each other.
