In autumn 2016, Galerie Rudolfinum will present an exhibition based on a movie by the French director Alain Resnais – Last Year in Marienbad from 1961. This film marked its place in history more than any other as a free adaptation of the French genre of a new novel created by Alain Robbe-Grillet. Going against the traditional structure of time, place and a plot, the story evolves on the background of a remarkable meeting of a man and a woman in a luxurious hotel and is further disturbed by an intentional fragmentation and discontinuity of the narrative.
