2 Reviews
Alain Resnais, director of Hiroshima Mon Amour and L'Année Derniere à Marienbad, has transformed the representation of memory, fantasy and desire in modern cinema. This illuminating new introduction to his work, extending from his earliest documentaries to the musical films of the last decade, traces the evolving patterns of his filmmaking, its changing reflections on mortality, guilt, chance and human doubt. Exploring questions of the time-image, of trauma, of the senses, this volume sets Resnais's films in the context of important current debates in film theory, and provides a concise account of critical discussions of his work in France and beyond.
