La jetée

Chris Marker Frankreich, 1962

Rafael Zen's rating of the film Am Rande des Rollfelds

The tenacity of memory through life or death. La Jetée embraces sci-fi on a very unique way, combining Marker's amazing photography with the magic of static images carrying all of this film's movement. Let's get one thing straight: it moves beautifully, it suggests, it flows. What's memory? What are those ghosts that appear inside us all? And most important: what can we do facing time closely?
