In Sans Soleil, filmmaker Chris Marker takes people to the end of memory's path and invites them to look back with him. If all that lies at the journey's end is a series of regrets, then the film of life culminates in melancholia for what has been lost, as well as what was desired but never possessed. There is certainly something of this in Marker's oeuvre, which aches at times for what was and what could have been. This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the concepts discussed in the previous chapters of this book. The book presents an epigraph from Marker's novel Le Cœur net, which stated that death is not the opposite of life, and that the antonym of living is still to be discovered.
