Late Autumn

Gilles Deleuze

Cinema 2: The Time Image
Cinéma 2: L'image-temps

Beyond the Movement Image
Au-delà de l'image-mouvement

Everyday banality
La banalité quotidienne

This is Ozu's thinking: life is simple, and man never stops complicating it by 'disturbing still water' (as in the three companions in Late Autumn). [Deleuze Cinema 2, 1989: 14d]

C'est la pensée d'Ozu L la vie est simple, et l'homme ne cesse de la compliquer en « agitant l'eua dormante » (ainsi les trois compères de « Fin d'automne »). [Deleuze Cinéma 2, 1985: 25b]

[Below we see the three companions making a mess of the situation when trying to arrange marriages. At the end, they discuss life's simplicity.]
