L'année dernière à Marienbad (Last Year at Marienbad) Reviews

Cole Smithey

Alain Resnais's transcendent filmic parlor game remains an innovative and exquisitely executed example of minimalist filmmaking, used to evoke mystery, romance, and a sprinkle social invective.

The poster child of cinematic modernism, one of those early-'60s event films that seemed to break every rule classical Hollywood ever codified.

I've always found it romantic and sexy, full of yearning and mystery.

This is London

Was there ever a film thought so boring by so many yet accorded the status of a classic?

Peter Bradshaw

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.

Little White Lies

an enigmatic mind-melt that sends characters and viewers alike on a chronology-confounding loop down labyrinthine corridors and up garden paths in pursuit of a (re)solution that, even after it has been found, remains elusive and ambiguous.

A veritable masterpiece, but beware, this icon of French New Wave cinema is as likely to irritate as it is to mesmerise.

A sublime meditation on memory, perception and fantasy - or art-house pretension at its emptiest? The jury's still out...

Its one of the greatest films ever made, and an experience unrivaled in cinema.

the elegant tracking shots amid the baroque architectural excesses that frame the film's lingering questions draw you into a world of mystery that seems to be ultimately understandable, yet constantly unravels at every turn

Gorgeous and elliptical...also became [for some] an instant subject of derision as a prototype for the impenetrable European art film.

The recurring attitude throughout most interpretations of Marienbad is that of sheer interpretation fatigue.

inexplicable and lovely; a fever dream without symptoms, an asylum run by the inmates.

Love it or hate it, no one's cinematic education is complete without having taken this baffling, haunting, uniquely challenging movie ride.

To even talk of a story is nonsensical, since a central aesthetic of the film involves the effects of fantasy, time and subjective memory on human consciousness. Marienbad takes place in a heightened, sci-fi nightmare world where knowing, believing

A daring experiment that succeeds not only in shattering familiar forms but in providing an apt shape for its unique story.

Combustible Celluloid

What finally dazzled me about the film is the way that Resnais cleverly put together a 94-minute film without ever taking a stand on any single thing; every single shot, detail, story, and character is suspect -- and subject to change without notice.

Marienbad is elegantly hermetic, a ravishing waxworks that has stillness at its heart.
