Deleuze and Cinema

Barbara M. Kennedy

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines the film The English Patient in relation to Gilles Deleuze's concept of the plane of immanence. It explains that although maps, mapping, and rhizomes offer a creative and experimental panoply in the light of Deleuzian ideas, maps also resonate across the narrative trajectory of the filmic experience of The English Patient. The chapter argues that maps and mapping are essential elements within the plot of this film, which centres around the memories of a mortally wounded and burnt war veteran and map-maker.

Keywords:   English Patient, Gilles Deleuze, plane of immanence, rhizomes, narrative trajectory, war veteran, map-maker
