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 (Haneke’s Amour, Bertolucci’s The Conformist), Marie-France Pisier (Truffaut’s Stolen Kisses and Bed and Board) and Isabelle Huppert (Claire Denis’ White Material, Haneke’s Amour).
