Studiocanal has confirmed that a newly restored edition of Alain Resnais‘ enigmatic and dreamlike French New Wave masterpiece, Last Year In Marienbad, written by Alain Robbe-Grillet, will be released on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download on 17 September 2018.
In a baroque spa hotel, an unnamed sophisticate (Giorgio Albertazzi) attempts to persuade a similarly unnamed married woman (Delphine Seyrig) that they have not only previously met, but that they were also romantically involved and had planned to elope together. The woman recalls no such encounter and so begins a sensual and philosophical examination of the uncertainty of truth.
Strikingly composed and beautifully shot in Cinemascope by Sacha Vierny, Last Year In Marienbadis a seductive and utterly fascinating cinematic puzzle hypnotically merging chronology to radically blur the boundaries of reality and fantasy.
The new restoration is Kindly supported by Coco Chanel who designed Delphine Seyrig’s costumes for the film.
