Philosophical film character
January 7, 2009 4:03 PM   Subscribe

I'm trying to remember a film I saw in which a character, possibly engaged in some form of criminal activity (though equally likely not), speaks only one sentence a day. This sentence tends to be aphoristic in nature. What is the film?

Clerks?

None of the above. The character speaks once a day, not once only, so it's not Clerks.

The Man on the Train/L'Homme du Train? "One of the crooks speaks only once a day, spending the rest of the time in preparation, and the one thing he says in the movie is 'Revenge is misfortune's justice'."

Man on the Train

"The character quirks of the lead roles are repeated in the amusing eccentricities of the bank robbers—the car driver speaks only one sentence a day at 10:00 a.m."
