Alain Resnais

L'Année dernière à Marienbad (Last year at Marienbad)

94' - 1961 - Mystery, Drama - Dialogue: French
Director: Alain Resnais Composer: Francis Seyrig With: Delphine Seyrig, Giorgio Albertazzi, Sacha Pitoëff
In a vast baroque mansion with a geometrically designed garden, a man tries to convince a woman guest that they had had an affair the year before, and that she should leave the man she is with. Rejecting a chronological structure, the mingling of memory and imagination, past and present, desire and fulfillment, can now be seen as one of the cinema's most haunting and erotic poems. The cryptic screenplay, the stylized playing, the tracking shots down endless corridors, the dazzling decor, and the mysteriously beautiful Seyrig, are all unforgettable. (Foreign Film Guide)
