Perfecting the theme of time travel loop in its prophetic writing and in its flawless sequencing and flow, La Jetée surpasses the best of its counterparts who have attempted time travel story narration in cinema. With exquisite black and white art shots, the film carries audience through past, present and future effortlessly without any motion, special effects or dialogues. An exemplary execution with sophisticated photography art and an outstanding script making it the very best of poetry.

We come back and again to the same point with a permanent underlying sea of saudade. "She calls him her ghost."
