La Jetée - Chris Marker

Chris Marker's 1962 movie 'La Jetée' (The Jetty) is a post-apocalyptic science-fiction film made largely with still images. Poetic, evocative and startling in its originality, it is a precursor of Tarkovsky's 'Solaris', Godard's 'Alphaville' and Terry Gilliam's '12 Monkeys' among others. If you've never seen it, here's your chance. The first version is in the original French, the second in English.
