Summary
  • La jetée: While at the Orly Airport observation deck, a boy sees a man shot. Shortly afterwards World War III breaks out and Paris is destroyed by nuclear weapons. As one of the survivors, the now grown man is chosen as part of an experiment in time travel because he has a strong grasp on a moment in the past--the image of the man being shot at the airport. He is successfully sent back in time. But once in the past, he falls in love with a girl, and defies orders to return and be with her
  • Sans soleil: This film addresses the themes of time, space, and geography. An unknown woman reads letters she has received from Sandor Krasna, a world-traveling freelance cameraman. The epigraphs Marker has chosen illuminate his purpose. The French version is by Racine "L'éloignement de pays répare en quelque sorte la trop grand proximité des temps." This is balanced by this quotation from Eliot in the English version, "Because I know that time is always time / And place is always and only place / And what is actual is actual only for one time / And only for one place."
