A great movie

7 years, 9 months ago at Jan 18 12:21
Since I kept hearing some great things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. On top of that, I really liked a lot ‘Twelve monkeys’, it is easily my favorite movie directed by Terry Gilliam,  so I was really curious about this short feature because Gillian was inspired by this short. Eventually, the whole thing just really blew me away. Seriously, by now, I have seen more than ... read more

Time travel, still images, a past, present and future and the aftermath of World War III. The tale of a man, a slave, sent back and forth, in and out of time, to find a solution to the world's fate. To replenish its decreasing stocks of food, medicine and energies, and in doing so, resulting in a perpetual memory of a lone female, life, death and past events that are recreated on an airports jetée.

" Notes: Since I really liked a lot ‘Twelve monkeys’, it is easily my favorite movie directed by Terry Gilliam, I was really curious about this short feature because Gillian was inspired by this short. Eventually, the whole thing just really blew me away. Seriously, by now, I have seen more than 5000 movies and it is very rare that a movie brings up something really new or groundbreaking. Well, this flick was definitely an exception and it is certainly one of the most original movies I have"

"21.5. (Yle Areena) Kiinnostava kerrontatapa dokumenttimaisesti etenevine valokuvasarjoineen. Loppu on tänä päivänä jo arvattavissa, mutta se sykähdyttää silti."

Films that absolutely needed that remake. (10 movies items)

"This is a remarkable film, but the remake Terry Gilliam's 1996 film, 12 Monkeys, was needed to flesh out the story, add motion pictures (the original was a collection of still photos) and a theatrical release. Both films hold up well."
