Trailer of the Day: Last Year at Marienbad

Last Year at Marienbad

“Resnais’s landmark film was such a cultural event that it was featured on the front page of Paris’s prestigious Le Monde newspaper and soon became an international sensation. Revolutionary in its cinematography, the film also challenged modern logic, questioning the notions of past, present, and future and the distinctions between truth and lie, reality and dream, objectivity and subjectivity. Did the two main characters meet in Marienbad the previous year or not? While in interviews Resnais offered a cautious ‘perhaps!’, screenwriter Alain Robbe-Grillet stated that it was up to the viewer to build his/her own interpretation, thus asserting the viewer as co-author.”—PF (94 mins.)

LAST YEAR AT MARIENBAD screens on Tuesday, April 23 at 7p.m. in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).  The film is being presented as part of our Literature Into Film series.
