Storyline

A sailor who was accused of killing a teenage girl and who was presumed to have drowned while making his escape, returns to the Mediterranean island where the alleged crime took place. But all is not what it appears. Robbe-Grillet keeps us guessing as to whether the murder actually took place and teases the viewer with the possibility that the sailor may be a restless spirit or a figment of the imagination conjured up by the victim's father to assuage his own guilt. Too many questions and not enough answers make for a very frustrating investigation. Written by Anonymous

Late Robbe-Grillet masterpiece
23 December 2001 | by (los angeles) – See all my reviews

The Moebius-stripping of MARIENBAD et al in a frame of the purest sensuousness--mind-bending, ravishing, a unicorn miraculously manifested from a lost era of cinema. Thanks for making it come to pass, Fred Ward.
