Amazing short film about 12 time traveling monkeys that spread the apocalypse via a Terry Gilliam movie starring Brad Pitt. A must see if your a fan of still frame pictures moving at very high frame rates.

I love the still image technique, and the concept of the story is right down my alley. The music is hauntingly beautiful.

Half hour short film. Very apparent that 12 monkeys stole this film's idea, but I wouldn't hold it against Gilliam: after all most films are a copy, more or less. Apart from the great plot, La Jetée has something unique (potential wake-up call for every so-so director): Marker proves (with ease) that the beauty of the cinema can be said in a simple mix of style and voice-over. A storyboard like this and you will never fail. Look for movement; it's there. Plot is everything. Composition likewise.

What little drama is present is overshadowed and then buried beneath a gimmicky premise and a wonky time travel narrative that I personally didn't find all that interesting. I still found this more imaginative and emotional than 12 Monkeys, though. I particularly enjoyed the imagery and the voice over narration.

La Jetée as a movie is one of the most interesting I’ve encountered. Virtually the whole movie involves narrating still shots. While this sounds like a glorified slideshow, its anything but. The pacing is magnificent. The mood created is truly immersive. In a truly astounding feat, Marker traps the viewer in this "slide show" mentality, and then, as the movie is discussing whether the character can decipher what’s real or not, he pulls the run out from under us.

Funky little short. Comprised only of stills, it's the story of a man watching his own death, that later inspired the excellent 12 Monkeys.

The film being made up almost entirely of still images is most definitely not a simple gimmick but is essential to the film's effect as it both makes what you see seem either like something out of a memory or seem disorientating depending on the context of the scene. Beats out the later adaptation of La Jetee, Gilliam's Twelve Monkeys, with Marker's film being more ambitious, audacious, beautiful, captivating, thought-provoking and dreamlike.

Once I have a better grasp on photography and cinema I'll try to explain exactly how it works. For now, it's enough that it does, and beautifully.

Probably my favorite short ever, and not just because it was what 12 Monkeys was based on. The style is very unique as it's just photos with music and a voice-over instead of the normal moving cinema. Hearing that you'd think it might detach the viewer, but it's actually incredibly compelling.

Not sure if this could be called a 'move'-ie. Think of it more like one of those slide shows your creepy uncle Bruce would show you of his trip to random museums, airports, and the post-apocalyptic future.
