Allan Arkush on

Last Year at Marienbad

Released 1962
Distributor Astor Pictures Corporation

Directed by Alain Resnais and written by Alain Robbe-Grillet, Last Year at Marienbad plays out in a palatial German hotel that feels more like a haunted house. Delphine Seyrig, Giorgio Albertazzi, and Sacha Pitoëff play the hotel’s ethereal inhabitants, a ghostly lover’s trio whose memories mingle with real life. Sacha Vierny (Belle de Jour) did the stunning black and white photography.
