A unique film that has practically no moving images - instead, it is made up of a series of still photographs and lasts just under 30 minutes. But in that short running time, it does enough to stay with you long after the closing credits - a tense, mysterious story set after a nuclear war, when scientists are trying to send people back through time to try to understand how the catastrophe happened. The man they choose for the job is obsessed with a single moment from his childhood - but what does it mean? And does it have a lesson for the future? Once you acclimatise to the strangeness of watching a "movie" that is actually made up of still photos, La Jetée is a haunting and magnificent film. Sans Soleil (15) Running Time: 100 mins Year Produced: 1983 Like Chris Marker's more famous film La Jetee, Sans Soleil rejects cinema's traditional story telling methods in favour of recording more personal impressions and memories. Scenes from Japan, Guinea-Bissau and Iceland are set to a female narrator reading letters sent to her by the fictitious cameraman. It's an experience unlike any other documentary travelogue you've seen before. Age: 14-18 PLEASE BE AWARE: After ordering La Jetee the disc you will receive will be marked as being a 15 certificate - however, this relates to the other film on the disc, San Soleil. La Jetee is certified with the BBFC as PG.
Ambitious, unusual and very impressive thriller where information is taken from and implanted in people's minds, meaning anything is possible...
