Last Year In Marienbad

Last Year In Marienbad

Synopsis

Last Year In Marienbad is an astounding collaboration between director Alain Resnais (Night And Fog) and leading French novelist Alain Robbe-Grillet. In a vast and opulent hotel, an unnamed man (Giorgio Albertazzi) attempts to persuade a similarly unnamed married woman (Delphine Seyrig) that they have not only met before, but that they were also romantically involved and had planned to elope together. The woman recalls no such encounter. Strikingly composed and beautifully shot, Last Year In Marienbad represents a key moment in the development of cinematic modernism.
