About this title


In a revealing series of interviews, Anthony N. Fragola and Roch C. Smith examine all nine of Robbe-Grillet’s films, specifically exploring the cultural milieu to which the films are closely related.

Readers are encouraged to view Robbe-Grillet from a variety of perspectives: as the auteur who probes various stylistic techniques and devices, especially the use of eroticism as a structural metaphor; as the international artist; as the detached observer; and as the impassioned creator.

The nine films covered are Last Year at Marienbad, L’Immortelle, Trans-Europ-Express, The Man Who Lies, Eden and After, N Took the Dice, The Progressive Slidings of Pleasure, Playing with Fire, and La Belle Captive.

Along with interviews available nowhere else, this book includes a gallery of illustrations from Robbe-Grillet’s films as well as a filmography and bibliography of work by and about Robbe-Grillet.
