REPERTORY SERIES
Ominous organ music resounds and the scope camera tracks through the seemingly endless halls of a baroque grand hotel as X (Giorgio Albertazzi) tries to persuade an initially disbelieving A (Delphine Seyrig) that they had met the year before. With dizzying time shifts and flashbacks, Last Year at Marienbad is the ultimate puzzle film.

"What I was not prepared for was the voluptuous quality of “Marienbad,” its command of tone and mood, its hypnotic way of drawing us into its puzzle, its austere visual beauty. Yes, it involves a story that remains a mystery, even to the characters themselves. But one would not want to know the answer to this mystery. Storybooks with happy endings are for children. Adults know that stories keep on unfolding, repeating, turning back on themselves, on and on until that end that no story can evade."
Roger Ebert - CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

"One of the strangest artifacts of cinema history... No other film has affected fashion as deeply."
Joshua Rothkopf - TIME OUT NEW YORK

"A gorgeous puzzle box of a movie."
Mark Harris - NEW YORK TIMES

"Profoundly mysterious and disturbing, a para-surrealist masterpiece whose nightmarish scenario appears to have been absorbed from Buñuel and Antonioni and transmitted onward to Greenaway."
Peter Bradshaw - GUARDIAN

"Remains one of cinema's glorious enigmas, endlessly compelling and intriguing."
Kevin Thomas - LOS ANGELES TIMES
