Shot on location in Czechoslovakia, the deliberately Kafkaesque The Man Who Lies (L’Homme qui ment) reveals Robbe-Grillet’s masterful understanding of how notions of "past" and "present" can be subverted through the visual grammar of film, telling a story of a man who appears to be inventing his own character. With Jean-Louis Trintignant, Sylvie Bréal. (95 mins., 35mm)
An erotic tale of murder and vampirism, poised between Lewis Carroll and the Marquis de Sade, Eden and After (L’Eden et après) focuses on a group of bored students hanging out in the Café Eden where the calm is shattered when a mysterious stranger introduces them to menacing new fantasies. With Catherine Jourdan, Pierre Zimmer. (93 mins., 35mm)
Presented with the generous cooperation of the French Cultural Services, New York City.
