Although the shadow of the World Wars may be overstressed in the film, Marker can sometimes suddenly bring some unexpected lightness to the film bringing her children photo.
It's interesting how a movie made only by stills and voice over (and little music) can be that incisive. Marker is a master at that.
The duration (about 40') is very precise. Before it starts to bore us it ends.
The text is so strong that sometimes you kinda forget that these are not MArker's images. When he talks about the photographer Denise Bellon (all the images of the film are hers) you realize that you were kind of far away in the trip throughout the 20th century that the movie makes us get into, and you look at these images with some distance again.
