Tilted symmetry

Yeah, say whatever you want about Alain Resnais, dude can frame a shot. Sure, it LOOKS easy - point a camera straight on. And then you realize that they're just slightly askew, which is what makes them god damn genius. Also, apparently, when stacked on top of each other, it almost creates one tall frame. And it's not a pan down...those are two totally separate shots. That kinda screws with you. Ladies and gentlement, I give you the opening shots of Je t'aime, je t'aime. As always, click to enlarge, won't you please?
