Not that interesting honestly, atleast it's short. Inspired Twelve Monkeys (which is way better than this) so some points for that.

12 Monkeys in 1/4 of the time and with twice the impact. The narrative is well-told and the grainy haunting stills accompanying it are as effective as any 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.

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.

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.

A great story that's eloquently narrated, far better written than its remake, Twelve Monkeys, but a film can't be considered truly great if it nearly functions without being one. A series of still images with only narration is definitively a slideshow, and although this format captures the test subject's fleeting moments of memories, it fails to convey the escapist moments of actual movement implied in the fantasies of the past. The Pier's narrative style is more often to its detriment than not.

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.

If VERTIGO was the inaugurating moment when cinema began to reflect on the many-dimensional connections between memory, dream, desire and the mysteriousness of time, then LA JETÉE is the reinaugurating moment when this reflective constellation turns back on cinema (and VERTIGO) itself, at the same time propelling cinema forward and into what will be a sequence of great and fascinating films all of which spiral around each other, and the analysis of which remains as a work for the future.
