Echoes #9

A man and a woman share a tender embrace, in two images nearly 80 years apart from films by F. W. Murnau and Anne-Marie Miéville.
Dave McDougall
An embrace, from the extant fragment of F. W. Murnau's Marizza, genannt die Schmuggler-Madonna (1922):
An embrace between Jean-Luc Godard and Anne-Marie Miéville, from Miéville's After the Reconciliation (2000):
Thanks to Andy Rector for providing the former image, and to an unknown Facebook friend for posting the latter.
Part of our on-going series, Echoes.
