A Grin Without a Cat

French agent provocateur Chris Marker (La Jetée) started this elaborate almost-documentary in 1977. His goal was to give some perspective on the 1977 breakup of France's Socialist-Communist alliance. The film was re-worked in 1993 to include the Soviet Union's collapse. Marker assembles archival footage (TV reports, guerrilla newsreels, government propaganda, interviews) to create a temporal portrait of a country in flux. 180 minutes
