La Jetée

I watched La Jetée (Chris Marker, 1962) for the 4th time. This "photo-roman" is always a pleasure to watch. For people unaware of this chef d'oeuvre, it inspired the 1995 Terry Gilliam feature Tweleve Monkey. It's the story of a man, time traveling back before a nuclear war, attempting to secure sustenance, and a solution, to the Apocalypse. It's a micture of a human story and a science fiction film focused on the very topic of memory. I am a great fan of Marker's aesthetics (I think Gilliam respected it): the pictures, the music as well as the rythm and the editing is perfect. Each time I watch it, I discover new details.
