    Last Year at Marienbad

    ★★★★★

    "L’année dernière à Marienbad“ is one the greatest and most ambitious films in history.
    It is one of those rare films which are impossible to describe since it transcends the concept of plot.
    An impenetrable piece of art, which intertwines memories, dreams and nightmares.
    The general plot itself is extremely simple. A man X tries to persuade a woman A that they have met last year at Marienbad and that she promised him to have decided if she wants to…

    ★★★★★

    Hiroshi Teshigahara achieves cinematic perfection. The main themes of identity, alienation, society and its imposed limitations are topics which everyone deals with.
    The psychiatrist’s office is one of the greatest set creations in film history.

    While all other American films rushed upon talkies, Chaplin didn't need sound, and delivered - probably - the greatest American film of the 30s.

    ★★★★½

    Certainly Dreyer’s least accessible work. With a very long run time and a quasi non existing story. I must admit I had to look at my watch a few times. However, it somehow managed to always draw me back. Despite subtle camera movements it manages to feel static, which perfectly fits Gertrud. One of the most interesting facts is that we as the viewer are never aware if we should sympathise with Gertrud or reprise her.

    As perfect as a comedy can get. Multiple things lead to the success of this film. Billy Wilder knows that less can be more. Jack Lemmon delivers an outstanding performance. Especially when combined with Joe E. Brown (who is often overlooked) Lemmon reaches his peak. Tony Curtis is good in playing a Cary Grant character. And, of course, Marilyn Monroe. It is often not easy to work and film with her. But once she is on the screen, she can easily outshine anyone.
