The dead hours, empty passages, the fleeting
and poignant desire to hear no more, to see no more,
to remain silent and motionless.

People who added this item 369 Average listal rating (192 ratings) 8.3 IMDB Rating 8.5

He wanted to believe that his own lack of movement 
had stopped all movement in the world,
the way a hibernating frog abolishes winter.

People who added this item 31 Average listal rating (15 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 7.3

We never get used to things, never feel content.
I find that just when we finally get something,
we're craving something else.
That's why the world grows wicked.

People who added this item 1410 Average listal rating (763 ratings) 8.4 IMDB Rating 8.1

It is so quiet out here, it is the quietest place in the world.
People who added this item 161 Average listal rating (91 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 8

Life flows too slowly on me. So I speed it up. I set it right.
People who added this item 36 Average listal rating (16 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.3

Red Desert (1964)


The sky darkens, then goes all dark. 
The dogs howl, rabbits hunch down, the deer run in panic,
run, stampede in fright. And in this awful,
incomprehensible dusk, even the birds... the birds too
are confused and go to roost. And then...
Complete silence. Everything that lives is still.

You mean more to me than any scientific truth.
People who added this item 326 Average listal rating (190 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 7.8

I'm afraid of everything - birds, storms - and now, this great fear of death...

What did she say?
She said destroy.

Je tu il elle (1974)

People who added this item 77 Average listal rating (33 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.1

It will always remain a mystery why there was no eruption. 
Never before in the history of vulcanology,
when signals of such magnitude measures,
and yet nothing happened.

If you look at the four seasons, each season brings fruit.
In summer, there's fruit, in autumn, too. Winter brings
different fruit and spring, too. No mother can fill her fridge
with such a variety of fruit for her children. No mother can do
as much for her children as God does for His creatures.
You want to refuse all that? You want to give it all up?
You want to give up the taste of cherries?

If she dies in an air raid,
her bones will be just
thrown into the Naka River.
But if she gets killed during an operation,
she'd be a human sacrifice for medicine.

All my life, I've been going around waiting for something.
I've felt as if the living I've done so far hasn't actually
been real life. But a long wait for it.

Nostalghia (1955)

People who added this item 368 Average listal rating (196 ratings) 8.1 IMDB Rating 7.9
The Eclipse (1962)

Two people shouldn't know each other too well 
if they want to fall in love.

Sadness is the only beauty that lasts.
People who added this item 262 Average listal rating (122 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 8
Orpheus (1950)

I am letting you into the secret of all secrets,
mirrors are gates through which death comes and goes.
Moreover if you see your whole life in a mirror you will
see death at work as you see bees behind the glass in a hive.

People want to be loved; failing that admired;
failing that feared; failing that hated and despised.
They want to evoke some sort of sentiment.
The soul shudders before oblivion
and seeks connection at any price.
People who added this item 46 Average listal rating (22 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7

Je rentre à la maison.
People who added this item 6 Average listal rating (3 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 6.9

I continued my stroll
around Saint-Germain,
determined to walk
until love overwhelmed me.

The icy water of the ponds and ruins fill the hallows of
the mass graves, a frigid and muddy water, as murky as our
memory. War nods off to sleep, but keeps one eye always open.
People who added this item 698 Average listal rating (364 ratings) 8.6 IMDB Rating 8.2

Isn't life disappointing?
People who added this item 603 Average listal rating (346 ratings) 8 IMDB Rating 7.9

I meet you. I remember you. Who are you?

What tears? What sadness?
I’m not sad, not sad at all.
I don’t cry. I’m never sad.
