Isabelle Adjani in Nosferatu: Phantom der Nacht. Herzog. 1979.
Interviewer: You once said that it was unfortunate your stepfather died before you had the chance to kill him. Why did you want to kill him?
Vince: The way he beat my mom, you know, and the way he treated me. I never gave up. My philosophy, that I learned probably then, is that in a fight of any kind, if I’m not dead.. I win. And he used to beat me unmercifully.
