La Jetée (1962) - film that inspired 12 Monkeys

In the wake of World War III, a man is forced to explore his memories!

"La jetée" is a million years ahead of its time. To make a movie in 1962 about World War III, time traveling and a distant future that is still genuinely disturbing and not in the least outdated comes close to a miracle. The most heartbreakingly despairingly romantic science fiction film ever made. Unique in film history, this experimental short film consists of a series of still shots tied together by narration. It is the story of a post-apocalyptic Earth and time travel. Each still shot is a work of art, and the plot is compelling. A man with a strong memory of a past event witnessed as a small child (a person being shot at an airport), is periodically sent back into that pre-war period by "experimenters" with devious purposes. While visiting the past, the hero falls in love with a woman from that past. Director: **Chris Marker** Stars: Étienne Becker, Jean Négroni, Hélène Chatelain Stream Full Movie La Jetée (1962)(via Vimeo).
