A philosophy teacher restless with the need to do something with his life meets a young woman suspected of driving an artist to his death.

Walk the Walk (1996)
In Walk the Walk, the three lives unfolding simultaneously are obviously not 'our' lives. The change from 'us' to 'me' is an individual journey - and a diaspora that is necessary for us to be reunited and to understand each other. (Hironobu Baba)

Starting Place/Point de départ (1994)
Everything is in medias res. Kramer never gives us a superimposed title telling us we are watching 'Vietnam' or 'Paris' or 'USA'; he never includes the identifying names of people, typewritten on screen, the first time we see them (and indeed, if we ever do learn this, it is often indirectly, by accident); he rarely introduces a radically different piece of footage into the montage with a reassuring title saying 'ten years ago', or a voice-off saying 'I remember ...'.

Sous le vent (1991) - Short Film
In the form of a video letter, this film goes up the Seine. Starting with the traces of the Normandy landing of the Americans, it ends in Paris in Jean Genet's hotel room. It is a voyage made to meditate on the "state of things" in a clear and melancholy way--the mutations in cinema and the media in the year of the Gulf War, in the company of Serge Daney and others.

Route One USA (1989)
Robert Kramer removes into interesting creative territories, as the necessity of every human being to feel attached with something or someone in his life, exploring the places where he comes from, NY and all the Route One becomes a personal cosmos of people, believing, sadness and sometimes small births of hope.
