Film Comment - 03/01/2007
"[F]ew films have ever been so devoted to re-creating the painful shifts of memory, as it continually moves from one temporal plane to the next."
New York Times - 04/06/2007
"From today's perspective MURIAL looks like the highest accomplishment of his early work."

Product Description:

Director Alain Resnais collaborated with novelist Jean Cayrol in this introspective drama of four lives linked by haunting memories.

Description by Koch Entertainment Distribution:

Delphine Seyrig gives an award-winning performance in Alain Resnais hauntingly brilliant masterpiece. Helene (Seyrig) is a widow who sells antiques from the apartment she shares with her eccentric filmmaker stepson, Bernard. Bernard is a veteran of the Algerian War and is haunted by his participation in the torture and murder of a young woman named Muriel.

Plot Synopsis:

In the haunting drama "Muriel," French filmmaker Alan Resnais continues his exploration of and fascination with memory and the impact of past events on people's present lives.
Helene is a lonely widow who lives with her stepson, Bernard, in Boulogne. Into their lives walk Alphonse, a lover from her past, and Francoise, who he claims is his niece but is actually his mistress. While Helene and Alphonse are obsessed with their past relationship, Bernard is troubled by his memory of a girl whose brutal death he witnessed while he was fighting in the Algerian War.
As in his prior films, Resnais tells the story in a dream-like, stylized fashion.
