Synopsis

Undergoing a scientist's experiments, a man relives his past, in particular his relationship with a woman. For this science-fiction film, or rather poem-fiction, Jean Boffety composes images in which realism and dreams exist alongside each other, their objective material presence clashing with the story's subjective temporality.

Alain Resnais

Alain Resnais was a French director, screenwriter, and editor. As the director of Hiroshima, mon amour (1959) and Last Year at Marienbad (1961), he quickly became regarded as one of the major figures of the French New Wave and one of the fathers of European cinematic modernity, alongside Roberto Rossellini, Ingmar Bergman, and Michelangelo Antonioni, for his way of challenging classical cinema grammar and deconstructing linear narration. A filmmaker who enjoyed experimentation and was able to question himself with each new project, Alain Resnais was recognized for his ability to create new forms and enrich the codes of cinematic representation by blending it with other arts: literature, theater, music, painting, and comics. His work encompasses a wide range of themes such as memory, political engagement, intimacy, death, and dreams.
