Abstract:

Feature : "[T]his surreal fever dream, or nightmare, gorgeously fuses the past with the present in telling its ambiguous tale of a man and a woman who may or may not have met a year ago, perhaps at the very same cathedral-like, mirror-filled château they now find themselves wandering. Unforgettable in both its confounding details (gilded ceilings, diabolical parlor games, a loaded gun) and haunting scope, Resnais' investigation into the nature of memory is disturbing, romantic, and maybe even a ghost story."--Container.

Toute la mémoire du monde: "A poetic piece about the French national library in Paris and the archiving of memory that looks forward to his later films."--Disc menu.

Styrene [aka: Le chant du styrene] : This short film was "shot in the Pechiney polystyrene factories and features boldly abstract color images and voice-over text [written] by Raymond Queneau."--Disc menu.
