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...

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.

I thought the idea of a film using still images to be some kind of art bullshit gimmick. However the effect is quite profound. It taps into something about the nature of time, and memories. It feels something like you are watching memories, which ofcourse you are. Set all Twelve Monkeys comparisons aside, the simliarities are superficial. It's more of an art piece that a piece of entertainment, not something that I usually look for, but at 20 minutes running time I can deal with that.

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.

I actually think 12 Monkeys improved upon the idea, but this one holds up pretty well on its own.

I was tired when I started watching this, and fell right asleep 10 minutes after the end. I'm not saying the film is boring, it just has its own slow charm. At first, I didn't see where this was going, being that the film is basically a narrator and still images, but eventually the whole ambiance works. This wouldn't have been nearly as interesting nor would it have conveyed any sort of message if done in the 'standard' character storytelling mode and moving pictures.

I'm not a big fan of the image montage, and while a lot of these pictures are beautiful and could probably fit nicely in an art gallery, I don't think it worked all that well on film. I can appreciate it but it's hard to enjoy.

The story is fairly brilliant, something like a combination of Slaughterhouse Five and a dystopic sci-fi. The visual quality is really poor, though, not to mention the experimental film style, and it prevented me from being completely engaged by the film.

I liked the story, but I definitively didn't like the way they told it. The still pictures aren't that bad, but the mix with that omnipresent narrator looks extremely pedant and tedious. I watched it because of '12 Monkeys', and there are quite a few things I didn't like about that 'remake', but not a single one was better in the original, and '12 Monkeys' add a few interesting ones to this.

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.

The film is entirely still images with a narration, but those images are so effective that it still feels as if you're seeing the action, kind of like when reading a good book you form pictures of what you're reading. Marker gives you some amazing images and an interesting narration while your mind completes the picture for you, it was incredibly effective. The story itself was also quite creative and even though I should have seen it coming, the ending was very good and caught me by surprise.

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.

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.
