    Anybody versed in German know what the scientists are whispering? Beautiful film.

    This is strongly remeniscent of 12 Monkeys. I imagine it might have influenced that film. Does anyone else get that vibe?

    12 MONKEYS was an acknowledged remake/reinvention of LA JETEE.

  4. One of my favorite shorts. I didn’t even catch the moving segment the first time, it’s so wonderfully subtle.

    The world needs more wonderfully subtle things.

    My German is very rusty, but I can tell you Staldo, that they were counting forwards and sometimes backwards during the procedure. They also mentioned how things are going well at one point…
    Cant be of more help, sorry.
