La Jetée

La Jetée (Chris Marker, 1963) Court-métrage.  Court examen. Les images fixes.  En noir et blanc.  Sci-Fi.  L'avenir Post-Apocalypse.  Bunker vie. Expérimentation.  Les sujets humains.  Voyage dans le temps.  La plupart des fous.  Un homme ne fonctionne pas Revient en arrièredansle temps.  Lesmesures préventives.  Rencontre d'une mémoire.  Tombe amoureux.  Impossible d'arrêter l'inévitable.  La futilité de bonnes intentions.

Finis.

La Jetée was the inspiration for Terry Gilliam's 12 Monkeys, which expanded the story-line, threw in some complicating issues about insanity and the perception of it, and one character that provided Brad Pitt an opportunity to work way-too hard playing crazythis was during his early experimental "stretching" phasewhich managed to fool the Motion Picture Academy enough to get him a best supporting actor nomination.  He needn't have bothered.

La Jetée already proves the lesson.

Faites-en plus en faisant moins.
