This film was the inspiration for 12 Monkeys. It’s set under a post-WW3 Paris, is only half an hour long, and is told in a series of photographic stills rather than moving images. Without spoiling it, the story is about time travel, love, imagination, and war. It also has a vicious twist that explains where Gilliam got his idea from. My favourite bit by far though has to be the visit to a natural history museum halfway through. The way the b+w film picks out the texture of the animals and her hand-knitted sweater is beautiful.
