Last Year at Marienbad(L'année dernière à Marienbad)

  • Dir: Alain Resnais

  • Greece/France/Italy/Germany/Russia, 1961, French, 94mins, DCP

  • Cast: Delphine Seyrig, Giorgio Albertazzi, Sacha Pitoëff

Still profoundly enigmatic 60 years on, Resnais' para-surrealist masterpiece is replete with "image always in the present tense". This perpetual cinematic puzzle takes place at a Baroque chateau, where a clandestine romantic relationship plays its hide-andseek. Murmurous dreamlike dialogues afloat the labyrinthine gardens, as a man tries to convince a beautiful woman that they were former lovers. Interlacing subjective realities, imagination and memories in a perplexing narrative structure, Resnais de/constructs subconscious into one of cinema's most haunting poetic revelation.
