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.

An amazing short, told in an abnormal way. The still photos work really well though, almost every one being a thing of beauty, and it ties into the "obsession of images" thing the movie has going for it.

Can't really explain why but this movie really got to me. Very original and the usage of still frames works surprisingly well.

A film "only" consisting of b&w stills, yet a film expressing the freshness of immidiate experience, solemnly reflective throughout. I see myself going back to this many times in the future...

brilliant. brilliant. brilliant. i am speechless. so stunning, breathtaking, engaging and chilling. so visually and narratively poetic, this short collection of still images conveys so much with so little. a perfect paradigm for any filmmaker who wants to discover the true essence of filmmaking.

Pretty successful story with just photos, music and a voiceover. The narrative was also good with nice ending.

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.

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.

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.

an utterly fascinating work of science fiction, about memory and its various levels of concretisation. the seminal moment of the film, a brief few seconds of movement, appears to me to be the the highest level, where reality and memory have all but merged. extremely self-contained and not really a flaw to be found, though i do wonder how high a rating this could be given considering it is only what it is, or something. but it's totally mesmerising.
