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.

"Cinematic time traveler Chris Marker’s reflection on time and memory and nuclear holocaust recounts (or recalls) the story of “a man marked by an image of his childhood,” a man whose “vision of peacetime happiness” is so obsessive, he’s thought to be the only soul in humanity’s post-apocalyptic underground hideout whose mind can retain the sort of focus necessary to travel back in time without going insane. The specter of Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo hangs over the most celebrated "

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."
