Trilogie Resnais

MUBI Special

Muriel, or The Time of Return

Alain Resnais France, 1963

Hélène, a widow, sells antiques from the apartment she shares with her stepson, Bernard. Bernard is haunted by his participation in the torture and murder of a young woman named Muriel while serving as a soldier in the war in Algeria. One the most powerful classics in Alain Resnais’ work.

Hiroshima mon amour

Alain Resnais France, 1959

A French actress (Emmanuelle Riva) and a Japanese architect (Eiji Okada) engage in a brief, intense affair in postwar Hiroshima, their consuming mutual fascination impelling them to exorcise their own scarred memories of love and suffering.

Night and Fog

Alain Resnais France, 1956

This chilling document of the horrors of the Holocaust, filmed only ten years after the liberation of the Nazi-run concentration camps, uses gruesome wartime images and footage of the now-empty camps.
