La Jetée (1962)
Narrator: He ran toward her. And when he recognized the man who'd trailed him from the camp, he realized there was no escape out of time, and that that moment he'd been granted to see as a child, and that had obsessed him forever after... was the moment of his own death.
Narrator: This time he is close to her, he speaks to her. She welcomes him without surprise. They are without memories, without plans. Time builds itself painlessly around them. Their only landmarks are the flavour of the moment they are living and the markings on the walls.
Narrator: They begin again. The man doesn't die, nor does he go mad. He suffers. They continue.
Narrator: Nothing distinguishes memories from ordinary moments. Only later do they become memorable by the scars they leave.
