backtrack; La jetée (1961)

A short experimental masterpiece on memory, loss, and obsession. Squeezes surprising amounts of emotion and drama out of its rudimental circumstances.

Highly influential and a personal favourite. In my book of intelligent, lyrical, and sad science fiction.

PS. Bonus material in a more absurd and Pythonesque vein, director Chris Markers’ collaboration with Walerian Borowczyk:
