A stunning new restoration of one of the most enigmatic and distinctive films ever made, this astounding collaboration between director Alain Resnais (Night and Fog) and leading French novelist Alain Robbe-Grillet is a key moment in the French New Wave.
In a baroque spa hotel, an unnamed sophisticate (Giorgio Albertazzi) attempts to persuade a similarly unnamed married woman (Delphine Seyrig) that they have not only previously met, but that they were also romantically involved and had planned to elope together. The woman recalls no such encounter and so begins a sensual and philosophical examination of the uncertainty of truth. Strikingly composed and beautifully shot in Cinemascope by Sacha Vierny, Last Year in Marienbad hypnotically merges chronology to radically blur the boundaries of reality and fantasy. A seductive and utterly fascinating cinematic puzzle, the film has been astonishing audiences for over forty years.

Sadly, not for me.
There is a mononous voice-over for the entire 90 minutes, which I couldn't relate to the images, but then, the images were weird and did not tell a story either. There is virtual;ly no action, and in my view, the whole thing could have been a play broadcast on BBC Radio 3 - if they would have taken it - and didn't need the pictures. As a movie-maker (in a small way), one of the things one tries to do is to replace dialogue with action/acting as much as possible, because a movie is all about movement, not speech, which is the domain of the theatre and radio. The story should be told in a mix of dialogue and action, not voice-over which I couldn't relate to any character. On the whole, for me this was a waste of time and money.
