Toute La Mémoire Du Monde-Monsieur Alain Resnais has made the best film about books.
15 August 2013 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

France is one of the few nations in the world where books and literature are held in very high esteem. This is an extremely propitious sign which symbolizes the vitality of the true 'book culture'. This culture finds its reflection in French documentary film "Toute La Mémoire Du Monde" which has been directed by Alain Resnais-one of French cinema's greatest directors. Apart from books, Resnais also discusses all forms of printed information. Although this film was shot in 1956 at Bibliothèque Nationale De France (BNF), French National Library, one could still find intact many of the places shown in the film. This is because even after an interval of 57 years, BNF continues to grow at an amazing pace without sacrificing even an ounce of its resources. One should not wonder if one is told that the use of technology to do all activities related to books have increased significantly at BNF. Toute La Mémoire Du Monde has been shot like a feature film with a mellifluous background score, taut narration and highly professional camera work. As a film, it is an extremely important work of art for students, librarians, information seekers, cultural enthusiasts and anybody who is interested in the enigmatic world of books.Lastly, it must be mentioned that Resnais has used memory as knowledge for this film as it is through knowledge that human beings would be able to overcome all their differences.This is the reason why "Mémoire" is as important as "Connaissance".
