The Man Who Sleeps (1974)
The dead hours, empty passages, the fleeting
and poignant desire to hear no more, to see no more,
to remain silent and motionless.
Woman in the Dunes (1964)
He wanted to believe that his own lack of movement
had stopped all movement in the world,
the way a hibernating frog abolishes winter.
City of Pirates (1983)
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.
The Fire Within (1963)
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.
Cléo from 5 to 7 (1962)
Destroy, she said (1969)
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.
Taste of Cherry (1997)
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?
The Sea and Poison (1986)
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.
The Sacrifice (1986)
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.
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.
Night and Fog (1956) (1957)
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.
Tokyo Story (1953)
Hiroshima Mon Amour (1959)
