L'Année dernière à Marienbad

L'Année dernière à Marienbad (released in the UK as "Last Year in Marienbad" and in the USA as "Last Year at Marienbad") is a 1961 French film directed by Alain Resnais, starring Delphine Seyrig, Giorgio Albertazzi, and Sacha Pitoëff. The screenplay is by Alain Robbe-Grillet.
The film is famous for its enigmatic narrative structure, in which truth and fiction are difficult to distinguish, and the temporal and spatial relationship of the events is open to question. The dream-like nature of the film has fascinated and baffled audiences and critics, some hailing it as a masterpiece, others finding it to be incomprehensible. Among the notable images in the film is a scene in which two characters (and the camera) rush out of the château and are faced with a tableau of figures arranged in a geometric garden; although the people cast long dramatic shadows, the trees in the garden do not.
