This chapter records some of the numerous references to the film, either by invoking the title to make a point about the emotional conflicts involved, or in more sustained situations. The latter include a witty advertising film for refrigerators and a potter’s enactment of a scene between two lovers who raise their coffee mugs that are engraved to reveal emotional responses. The range of such allusions, along with many usages of the title in novels and reviews of yet other books, reinforces our sense of the far from still life of the movie.
