Alain Resnais and the Mise en Scène of Two

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter examines the artistic cinema of Alain Resnais, focusing on Hiroshima mon amour and Last Year in Marienbad, and proposes something of a novel approach for the analysis of the questions of time and love as they are thought in the cinema of Resnais. It shows that Resnais's cinema is at one and the same time an ethical cinema, one which presents the ideas of love and of time, and a cinema that effectively rethinks the concept of the event.
