Twelve Monkeys

Sombre time-travel thriller in which a convict from 2035 is sent back in time to find the cause of a virus which has wiped out most of the planet's population and driven the survivors underground. However, he accidentally arrives in 1990 instead of 1996 and is locked in an asylum where he meets a fellow inmate who may have a part to play in the epidemic. Inspired by Chris Marker's seminal 1962 short film 'La Jetee'.
