Je T’Aime, Je T’Aime (1968)

Returning to the subjects of lapsing time and unreliable memory that had informed all his earlier features, Alain Resnais harnessed that old sci-fi standby, the time machine, to bring an extra dimension to this intriguing study of lost happiness, despair and death.

Unfortunately, as the suicide survivor dispatched to retrace his past, Claude Rich struggles to make an impact amid the fragmentary recollections of his affair with Olga Georges-Picot (pictured above), for whose demise he may be responsible.

There may be a fantastical poetry about the enterprise, but it’s also a searching investigation into the helpless insignificance of human existence.
