  1. fearraigh's rating of the film All the World's Memories

    On the face of it, a routine educational film but Resnais infuses this charming documentary on the Bibliothèque National de France at rue Richelieu with an ineffable poetic dreaminess. There is so much going on here and the bureaucratic mundanities of classification are rendered with arresting mystery. Brilliant stuff.

  2. Diderot's rating of the film All the World's Memories

    A lyrical and ponderous little documentary about the Bibliotheque Nationale that's also a rumination on the nature of civilization.

  4. FISCHER's rating of the film All the World's Memories

    Par une caméra alerte et fouineuse, en de longs travellings avant, des prises de vue sans cesse en mouvement, Resnais rend un hommage séduisant à la Bibliothèque Nationale... www.cinefiches.com

  8. Lars Åndheim's rating of the film All the World's Memories

    So glad to have discovered Resnais’ early documentary work! Each shot here is a fetishistic celebration of space — imbuing the corridors of Le B. nationale with dusty, clandestine grace. Ornamental foregrounds, marble walls, nooks and crannies — crypt or cathedral? Albeit the sculptural/ Apollonian qualities — it’s a slow and silent procession which more than anything demonstrates futility, desperation, humanity.

  14. TFCHooligan69's rating of the film All the World's Memories

    The wealth of information stored within the Bibliothèque Nationale is truly astounding. Resnais crafted a superb short film that remains an essential preface to his most celebrated works.

  18. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film All the World's Memories

    Alain Resnais se inició como un documentalista con visión antropológica. Al igual que en otro corto que codirigió junto a Chris Marker (Las estatuas también mueren, 1953), Resnais hace una reflexión sobre la relación entre Historia y humanidad. La primera como espacio que oficializa a la memoria, una que es selectiva y que por tanto se adapta a las fantasías del hombre.
