Last Year In Marienbad (DVD)
A spectacular new restoration of one of the most mysterious films ever made, this unique partnership between director Alain Resnais and French novelist Alain Robbe-Grillet is a highlight of the French New Wave. Giorgio Albertazzi and Delphine Seyrig star.
In a baroque spa hotel, an unnamed sophisticate attempts to convince a likewise unnamed married woman that they have not only previously met, but that they were also romantically involved and had planned to flee together.
The woman remembers no such meeting and so begins a sensual and thoughtful assessment of the ambiguity of truth.
Remarkably composed and exquisitely shot in Cinemascope by Sacha Vierny, Last Year in Marienbad hypnotically combines chronology to radically blur the boundaries of reality and fantasy.
A seductive and completely captivating cinematic puzzle, the film has been surprising audiences for over 40 years.
