Special Preview: Last Year At Marienbad

A preview screening of a brand-new restored print, courtesy of the BFI. Consciousness and memory become all-too tangible in Alain Resnais’ haunting masterpiece, set in a precision-designed mansion of the mind. Sacha Pitoeff is M, a cuckolded husband attempting to understand the mysterious actions and intentions of his wife A (Delphine Seyrig) and the stranger X (Giorgio Albertazzi); the relentless traversing of the intricate estate stands in for the tortured mental process of one man trying to locate the truth.

Dir Alain Resnais, France 1961, 94 mins, subtitles, cert U, digital print
