Breaking Glass Magazine – January 2021

In the first lockdown back in the spring of 2020, I spent most of my government allocated exercise periods out and about on my bike, rediscovering my local area of Wakefield. Just aside a nature reserve, I came across this particularly striking piece of street art.
Upon first glance the text reads like a dramatic plea of innocence from some local libertine, more Jeremy Kyle than Jean Luc, but a quick google proved it was indeed pinched from Godard’s 1963 film Le Petit Soldat.
I was suitably impressed and finding Wakefield’s ode to 1960’s French New-Wave Cinema was one of the more welcome of the many surprises 2020 brought.
