“A failed suicide agrees to become a guinea pig for scientists exploring time travel and is caught, not just in a given moment, but in an infinite variety of given moments, all variations on one another. And time’s winged chariot will never come to his rescue. Resnais is obsessed with time, and perhaps with a profoundly Marxist sense of history as the nightmare from which man is trying to awaken... People weren’t then ready for this quiet mixture of science fiction with a love story as subtle as anything in Rohmer or Rivette. But with Marker’s La Jetée and Andrei Tarkovsky’s Solaris, it is part of a holy trinity of meditations on the horrors of eternal life.”
