I'm not going to pretend I am "movie smart" enough to get this film. I found a lot of the sequences poetic and visually haunting, like viewing moving artwork, but I definitely did not fully grasp the plot. As an exercise in surrealism, it sort of works, but it's not the type of movie I would, quite honestly, pop into the DVD player for a repeat viewing. In my opinion, there are better Resnais films, as well.

I'm not going to claim I can really get into the story here - I'm not up on French cinema, but I do know that visually this film is stunning - beautiful and haunting and the music only adds the feeling of unease. It's like part dream, part memory and something, to me, entirely unique. Will require repeat viewings for sure.

Unfortunately, I didn't get this Resnais film. I hope to rewatch it and understand it more. I really wanted to like this film.

Brilliant movie! Pure poetry, romance and a dreamy sequence of shots, it just doesnt get any better then this, only French cinema can do something like this. Essential viewing for any serious movie buff. The lead actors, the camera, the cinematography is just top notch This is one of the reasons why i prefer art movies above anything else ;)

The Epitome of Modernist Cinema

Famous for being einigmatic and dream-like, a movie were categories like time and space seem to be as superflous and unreliable as memory itself, Resnais’ has been considered the quintessential example of modernist cinema. The film takes place in a baroque hotel during a high society event. The guests are all socialites and take part in games of cards, shooting as sport and small plays. In the midst of all these bourgeoise activities a mysterious man approaches a woman – whose husband is busy winning at a card game each time – and he tells her how both of them had met a year before. The woman of course has no recollection of this. The man proceeds to tell his story multiple times, each time with some sort of variation that completely changes the event dramatically, and by the end one can ...
