In a vast and opulent hotel, an unnamed man (Giorgio Albertazzi) attempts to persuade a similarly unnamed married woman (Delphine Seyrig) that they have not only met before, but they were also romantically involved and had planned to escape together. The woman recalls no such encounter and so begins a sensual and philosophical examination into the uncertainty of truth.
Puzzling but very rewarding

Wowser’s this as to be the most mind blowing and puzzling movie i have ever seen, its a film where every single detail means something from its glorious visual setting to its odd character placement’s with their even stranger and complex dialogue but i really had no clue what was happening, it’s clear to see why the film is held in such high regard and can clearly be seen to of had such a massive influence and impact from the cinematic greats such as Kubrick stretching all the way through to Nolan.Did i like it ? visually it hit all the buttons but i was totally lost in its labyrinth of time and space and couldn’t make head nor tail of it, that was until after the film ended i watched an extra explaining at least 5 different versions/takes on what was happening through the film, talk about enlightenment i was ready to give the film a meagre 5/10 mainly for visuals but would have no trouble now upping that to 7 and damn sure this will hit the 9 position on a rewatch.Mind well and truly Blown
