Reminiscence: Alain Resnais

Two films – an iconic landmark and a more recent stylistic experiment – recall the extraordinary career of the late French film director Alain Resnais (1922 – 2014). The prevailing theme that runs through Resnais’ work, the mysteries of memory, is explored from different perspectives. This program is presented in collaboration with the Cultural Service of the Embassy of France. The screenings are free but reservations are required. Please visit www.nga.gov/film

 

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

France - 1961 - 94min - 35mm

Cast: Giorgio Albertazzi, Delphine Seyrig

in French with English subtitles

 

SYNOPSIS                                                         

An essential film of the 1960s New Wave and an enduring and fascinating modernist conundrum, L’année dernière à Marienbad mingles the past with the present in a puzzling tale about a man and a woman (Giorgio Albertazzi and Delphine Seyrig) who might have been lovers a year ago while guests in the same gilded château where they now find themselves. Hauntingly lush in black-and-white, wide-screen imagery, Resnais’ daring escapade into memory is unsettling, dreamy, and possibly even peopled by ghosts. Script by Alain Robbe-Grillet and cinematography by Sacha Vierny.
