This was the first film to be written and directed by French novelist Alain Robbe-Grillet. Released in Paris in 1963, the film concerns a character known as N (Doniol-Valcroze) who becomes obsessed with a woman known as L (Brion). She is followed by a Turkish man, M, (Celano) and his two

dogs. N follows L around the city's crowded streets and persuades her to take a vacation with him. While they are driving away, one of M's dogs runs into the street. To avoid hitting the dog, N and L swerve off the road and L is killed. Some time later, N takes the same trip and the other dog runs

into the street. Again he swerves to avoid the dog; this time he dies. An interesting film that is quite similar to the work of director Alain Resnais. After seeing Resnais' HIROSHIMA, MON AMOUR, Robbe-Grillet and the director discussed a collaboration. The pair considered working together on

L'IMMORTELLE but instead collaborated on LAST YEAR AT MARIENBAD.
