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

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 re-watched this short film after 5 years. It didn't affect me as much as the first time, but it struck me how well sound and music are used. It's really unfair to compare it to "12 monkeys" (or other way around). It's experimental cinema, very different from traditional 25 frames-per-second narratives, but even more effective and captivating.

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.

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.

A powerful, albeit unusual, method of storytelling. The stills are very effective at setting the mood, but some of them look a little amateurish and there are too many shots of the guy with the mask over his face.

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.

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.

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.
