Alain Resnais - Last Year In MarienbadSupervised by Studiocanal, the 4K scan and restoration of Last Year In Marienbad reproduce all the details of the original 35mm film negative to regain the finesse and elegance of the gorgeous black and white photography. Together with the revitalised image is restored sound established from the original audio mix found on the 35mm film negative.

This ensures audiences – new and old – can enjoy Resnais’ astounding collaboration with French novelist Alain Robbe-Grillet, a seminal moment in the French New Wave, like never before.

Regarded by many critics as Resnais’s greatest work, the film arrives on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital courtesy of Studiocanal’s Vintage World Cinema series. Last Year In Marienbad, which sees an unnamed sophisticate (Giorgio Albertazzi) attempt to persuade a similarly unnamed married woman (Delphine Seyrig) that they are romantically involved and planning to elope despite her having no such memory of him or their relationship, boasts brand new bonus materials including two little-seen short films by Resnais and a fascinating interview with film historian Ginette Vincendeau.
