la Jetée, la biblioteca, laibrary  

Thrown (Ţâpat) in

Am avut nu demult treaba la Toronto Reference Library, adica mama soacra a tuturor bibliotecilor d-aici-sha, si m-am gandit sa va povestesc o chestie c-o blonda. Si cum / care este scurt-metrajul care-a inspirat 12 Monkeys.

Daca nu-i clar, in engleza biblioteca sa cheama library.

Soren Kierkegaard mugshot


It is quite true what Philosophy says: that Life must be understood backwards. But that makes one forget the other saying: that it must be lived –forwards. The more one ponders this, the more it comes to mean that life in the temporal existence never becomes quite intelligible, precisely because at no moment can I find complete quiet to take the backward-looking position.

Søren Kierkegaard

Sunt multe de spus despre citatul de mai sus, dar nu-ti voi strica placerea degustarii cu o interpretare. Mai degraba, iti voi da un alt citat, gasit azi la laibreri, in completarea ultimului articol despre in-validare:

Twaddle, rubbish, and gossip is what people want, not action…. The secret of life is to chatter freely about all one wishes to do and how one is always being prevented – and then do nothing.


Vorbarie, mizerii si bârfa este ceea ce doresc oamenii, nu actiune .... Secretul vietii este sa sporovai in voie despre tot ce vrei sa faci si cum întotdeauna ai fost împiedicat - si de a face apoi nimic.

Poate-ar trebui sa va zic o poveste de la biblioteca, unde toate mesele erau ocupate de grupuri de masculi si o singura masa cu o singura persoana – o blonda faina. Si cum mi-am bagat tabletu’ in priza langa piciorul ei, cum m-am miscat lent, cum ea a zambit in interior si mi-a aruncat o privire pentru o fractiune de secunda si apoi s-a refugiat in laptopul ei, asteptand cu anxietate urmatoarea mea miscare, cum tabletu’ meu s-a trezit sa-si faca 20 de updates dintr-o data pe un wireless atat de lent ca-mi amintea de vremea dial-up-ului de 9600 bps, cum am inceput sa ma infurii si mi-a trecut orice chef de agatat blonde, cum mi-am amintit ca dupa ce ca am cazut zdravan (Canada) in topurile de Internet atat la bandwidth cat si la penetrare vor fratii sa faca Internet cu taraita (cbc, ad, ubb, ctv, om).

Asa ca mai bine va zic ca 12 Monkeys (trailer1, trailer2, 2 min, outpost, brad, consumerism) si regizat de Terry Gilliam of Monty Python fame (penis, philosophers, fotbal, best, hitler, spanish inquisition, argument, idiots, hospital, joke, job, leaves, spam, french, bunny, knight, witch, Grail) este inspirat si el de un scurt-metraj frantuzesc din 1962, La Jetée, in regia lui Chris Marker:

This is the story of a man, marked by an image from his childhood. The
violent scene that upsets him, and whose meaning he was to grasp only years
later, happened on the main jetty at Orly, the Paris airport, sometime
before the outbreak of World War III.
Orly, Sunday. Parents used to take their children there to watch the
departing planes.
On this particular Sunday, the child whose story we are telling was bound
to remember the frozen sun, the setting at the end of the jetty, and a
woman's face.
Nothing sorts out memories from ordinary moments. Later on they do claim
remembrance when they show their scars. That face he had seen was to be the
only peacetime image to survive the war. Had he really seen it? Or had he
invented that tender moment to prop up the madness to come?
The sudden roar, the woman's gesture, the crumpling body, and the cries of
the crowd on the jetty blurred by fear.
Later, he knew he had seen a man die.
And sometime after came the destruction of Paris.
Many died. Some believed themselves to be victors. Others were taken
prisoner. The survivors settled beneath Chaillot, in an underground network
of galleries.
Above ground, Paris, as most of the world, was uninhabitable, riddled with
The victors stood guard over an empire of rats.
The prisoners were subjected to experiments, apparently of great concern to
those who conducted them.
The outcome was a disappointment for some - death for others - and for
others yet, madness.
One day they came to select a new guinea pig from among the prisoners.
He was the man whose story we are telling.
He was frightened. He had heard about the Head Experimenter. He was
prepared to meet Dr. Frankenstein, or the Mad Scientist. Instead, he met a
reasonable man who explained calmly that the human race was doomed. Space
was off-limits. The only hope for survival lay in Time. A loophole in Time,
and then maybe it would be possible to reach food, medicine, sources of
This was the aim of the experiments: to send emissaries into Time, to
summon the Past and Future to the aid of the Present.
But the human mind balked at the idea. To wake up in another age meant to
be born again as an adult. The shock would be too great.
Having only sent lifeless or insentient bodies through different zones of
Time, the inventors where now concentrating on men given to very strong
mental images. If they were able to conceive or dream another time, perhaps
they would be able to live in it.
The camp police spied even on dreams.
This man was selected from among a thousand for his obsession with an image
from the past.
Nothing else, at first, put stripping out the present, and its racks.
They begin again.
The man doesn't die, nor does he go mad. He suffers.

Bun, si ce legatura exista intre Kierkegaard, povestea de la biblioteca si La Jetée?
