It's the film equivalent of reading a graphic novel, and what an interesting experience it is.

Sometimes, all you need to make an impression is 25 minutes. Or a few seconds. Or several hundred years. With a time machine, it pretty much adds up to the same thing.

The gorgeous and haunting stills work beautifully partly because of the film's relatively short length. This length slightly hampens the story, but only slightly.

When your film uses stills, you have to make absolutely sure you get all you can out of them, which Marker accomplishes flawlessly. I'm a sucker for time travel stories anyway, and this is one that handles the genre in a surprisingly simple and innovative way.

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.

The story is interesting, but the still pictures experiment doesn't really work, I'm afraid. Some of the photographs are very beautiful, though - it would have made a fantastic comic book. As a film, however, it is rather boring. But you know, I can imagine a talented director could use "La Jetée" as an inspiration for an extraordinary film. Preferrably starring Bruce Willis.

I don't know how to really explain in depth, but there's something absolutely haunting about the combination of beautiful stills and low-key music. And it's a killer premise for a story, told very efficiently. Causal loops are my shit.

Rather than a short film, this is a collection of photos and text with a narrator on top, which is something I had a hard time getting into. This apart, the story is very interesting, and deeper than it might sound at first.

It's an interesting experiment in time-travel sophistry, which fails, from a logical perspective, seeing as it presupposes a man outliving himself. You may say that this isn't the point, but then I wonder what is. The pretty still pictures as a narrative device are *just that*, and well, take away the gimmickry and nothing much remains here. Atleast 12 Monkeys has drama.

One of the better shorts I have seen. Stills combined with music doesn't get much better than this.

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.

Although I found it very difficult to get used to the slide-show style of the film, I must admit that in terms of executing the story, the filmmakers did a very respectable amount with very little. A fascinating precursor to 12 Monkeys that any fan of that movie should check out.
