This book is an examination of the European art cinema piece "l'Anne derniere a Marienbad", a collaboration between director Alain Resnais and "enfant terrible" Alian Robbe-Grillet. An abstract thriller and love story, this book attempts to show that the movie's deviations are a philosophical puzzle.
