MovieMail's Review

Alain Robbe-Grillet’s moment as director - death notwithstanding, and for UK audiences- seems to have come.

He is of course part of celluloid legend, having written Alain Resnais’ Last Year at Marienbad, but this hugely ambitious six feature package (with extremely helpful contextualising extras) will operate from a standing start for most viewers. For decades Robbe-Grillet’s film been the preserve of the festival and much-missed repertory circuit since widespread release success in the ’60s for his most successful titles, The Immortal One and Trans-Europ-Express. This last - mystery, thriller, erotic fantasy, set on the eponymous train - features the essential presence of the great Jean-Louis Trintignant, who also appears in four more of the features collected here.

Sexually provocative, playing with genre and psychological expectations and often both stylish and stylised simultaneously, Alain Robbe-Grillet's films distilled the preoccupations of their times in striking, often unexpected ways.

Film Description

A 6-film box set of the controversial French director/writer’s enigmatic and sexually-charged films, available for the very first time.

Perhaps best known as the writer of Alain Resnais' classic cine-conundrum Last Year of Marienbad, Alain Robbe-Grillet was also the director a number of stylish, controversial and erotic films which starred such icons of French cinema as Jean-Louis Trinignant, Marie-France Pisier and Isabelle Huppert.

Impossible to see for decades, these enigmatic films have now been collected together for the very first time, and are made available here in beautifully remastered High Definition presentations, with extra features including video introductions by Catherine Robbe-Grillet, filmed interviews with Alain Robbe-Grillet by Frederic Taddei, and newly-recorded, exclusive feature-length commentaries by cult cinema authority Tim Lucas.

Contains: The Immortal One (1963), Trans-Europ Express (1967), The Man Who Lies (1968), Eden and After (1970), N. Took the Dice (1971) and Successive Slidings Into Pleasure (1974).
