" Narrator: I will have spent my life trying to understand the function of remembering, which is not the opposite of forgetting, but rather its lining. We do not remember. We rewrite memory much as history is rewritten. How can one remember thirst? Narrator: He liked the fragility of those moments suspended in time. Those memories whose only function had been to leave behind nothing but memories. He wrote: I've been round the world several times and now only banality still interests me. On thi"

""In the opening moments of Sans Soleil, a cinematic essay and travel film made up of asides and digressions that form a portrait of late twentieth-century civilization, Marker takes us from rural Iceland in 1965 to Japan in the early 1980s, with fleeting references to Africa, รŽle-de-France, and the Bijagos Islands. 'Iโ€™ve been round the world several times and now only banality still interests me,' a narrator remarks." - Jonathan Rosenbaum"

" A brilliant documentary. BRILLIANT. Poetry and a million pictures. Documenting life in Japanese, African and Cape Verde society. The failings of memory. 8.7/10 What was so powerful in this moment for me? The short moment of sincerity in her look at the camera. The pain of living hidden behind the features of her dark face and forming smile. Simply she is beautiful and I am drawn in but there is more in her short stare something real for me to cling to like a how a baby clutches the motherโ€™"
