One of the most influential films of all time, Alain Resnais' first feature sees a French actress (Emmanuelle Riva) and a Japanese architect (Eiji Okada) engage in a brief, intense affair in postwar Hiroshima, their consuming fascination impelling them to exercise their own scarred memories of love and suffering. Utilizing an innovative flashback structure and an Academy Award-nominated screenplay by novelist Marguerite Duras, Resnais delicately weaves past and present, personal pain and public anguish, in this moody masterwork
L'Année dernière a Marienbad by Alain Resnais( Visual )

5 editions published between 1961 and 2009 in French and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Feature : "[T]his surreal fever dream, or nightmare, gorgeously fuses the past with the present in telling its ambiguous tale of a man and a woman who may or may not have met a year ago, perhaps at the very same cathedral-like, mirror-filled château they now find themselves wandering. Unforgettable in both its confounding details (gilded ceilings, diabolical parlor games, a loaded gun) and haunting scope, Resnais' investigation into the nature of memory is disturbing, romantic, and maybe even a ghost story."--Container

L'Éden et après by Alain Robbe-Grillet( Visual )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in French and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A group of bored students are wiling away the hours at a club called "Eden", doing silly things like staging pseudo Russian roulette encounters, when suddenly they meet up with a mysterious stranger who offers them a way out of their boredom, with descriptions of Africa and a powder called something like "powder of fear". The leader of the gang (the quite lovely Catherine Jourdan) takes the powder, and the rest of the movie might be interpreted as her hallucination: rampant s & m imagery, tribal dances in the Middle East, her friends now seen as enemies, and a decrepit factory belching out odd effluent."
