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.

"One of the strangest artifacts of cinema history...no other film has affected fashion as deeply."
— Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
PUZZLE BOX OF A MOVIE!"
— Mark Harris, The New York Times
"The movie is what it is - a sustained mood, an empty allegory, a choreographed moment outside of time, and a shocking intimation of perfection."
— J. Hoberman
