Runtime: 1 hour, 35 minutes
In a huge, old-fashioned luxury hotel a stranger tries to persuade a married woman to run away with him, but it seems she hardly remembers the affair they may have had (or not?) last year at Marienbad.
To anyone who's seen the movie:
Is the content of the opening monologue significant?
I'm watching the movie with english subtitles, but none of them that I've seen subtitle the opening monologue...

Last Year at Marienbad is certainly 99% devoid of passion, so even if you don't want to interpret it as a horror film, a ghost story or even a vampire film (there are some interesting visuals involving the sun and the night at the same time and a neat strip of overdeveloped film during a long track down a hallway), it may be a film which you find difficult to warm up to.
