In a hotel in the resort of Marienbad, the wealthy clientele circulates. A man is convinced he met a woman last year at the same location. A second man, possibly the woman's husband, bullies the first man. Their relationships unfold through flashback fragments that are confused with each other, making the boundaries of place and time dissolve through the narrative.
*The film won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival in 1961. Also, Alain Robbe-Grillet was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.
