Directed by the French New Wave director Alain Resnais, Last Year in Marienbad broke the formal boundaries of filmmaking while proving to be a surprising commercial success as well. In a Bohemian castle converted into a hotel, an atmosphere of silence reigns. The guests are there to rest and apart from a few murmured words, all noise is forbidden. When one resident becomes infatuated with a young woman, he tries to persuade her that they had an affair the year before, in Marienbad. Beautifully shot in Cinemascope by Sacha Vierny (Belle de jour) with a screenplay by Alain Robbe-Grillet (L'Immortelle, Un Bruit Qui Rend Fou) the film stars Delphine Seyrig, Giorgio Albertazzi and Sergio Pitoeff and was a deserved winner of the Golden Lion at Venice in 1961.
